“Our wonderful holiday”
Reviewed August 10, 2018 for a stay in July 2018

person found this review helpful

We’ve recently returned from a stay in the Laurels at Dolphin Gites. The villa is very well equipped and spotlessly clean. Cathy and Howard the owners are really pleasant and are on hand to chat and answer any queries. The complex itself is beautifully maintained and very safe for children. The area is fabulous. There is so much to do from bodyboarding (great waves) the cycling is simply amazing, paths everywhere! The beaches are stunning. Shopping and restaurants all within a short drive. There is nothing not to love about the gite complex and the surrounding area. You won’t be disappointed.

“Fantastic holiday ”
Reviewed August 8, 2018 for a stay in July 2018

We had a fantastic holiday staying in the Laurels at Dolphin Gîtes. The gîte was very clean and was well equipped. There was a lovely private outside area as well as the beautiful garden and very well maintained swimming pool. The gîte is in the heart of La Chaize-Giraud but was so peaceful so we had a really restful stay. Bretignolles-sur-mer was a short drive, or cycle, away and we enjoyed visiting the market and beaches here. The area is fantastic for cycling whether you want off road cycle paths or you are a serious roadie! There are also plenty of places to visit, we went to watch La Tour de France but now I can't wait to go back!

“Brilliant Holiday”
Reviewed September 10, 2017 for a stay in August 2017

We spent two weeks at these sites and we had one of the best holidays we had ever had. The setting of the gites were great, located in a village 10 minutes from the beach and lovely and quiet. The owners Howard and Cathy were helpful, friendly and couldn't do enough to help us. There are some great local activities to do if you have kids, our daughter especially loved the local french go-ap, far better than any Uk one we have been to. When we returned to the UK all we wanted to do was return.

Thank you Howard and Cathy for yet another lovely stay at Dolphin Gites. Friendly hosts, a very comfortable gite in a great location, very close to the sea and with wonderful weather. We couldn't ask for more!

“Lovely gites, wonderful hosts and beautiful area.”
Reviewed October 7, 2015 for a stay in July 2015

My wife and I stayed for two weeks from the end of June and we're delighted with the gite and other facilities on offer, including a beautiful pool area.
Our gite was one of a number on the same site and the owner, Catherine, together with her husband, were a delightful couple who went out of their way to ensure we had a memorable stay, even going so far as to host a weekly drinks party to help all guests get to know each other.
We took our bikes along and spent many enjoyable hours cycling the excellent cycle paths available throughout the area.

“Perfect slice of real France...”

Wow what a lovely gite/complex plus Cathy & Howard were the perfect hosts available when needed them, very welcoming but left you total freedom to enjoy the grounds and all to hand.

We very much enjoyed the drinks evening in the garden with other guests, made some good friends plus enjoyed the 3Ds!!!

We had a great holiday, loved the beaches, market, Halles, swingball, table tennis, gardens, bikes, great church with bells and lovely local walks.

Ps gite was cosy and we enjoyed snuggling down in the evenings to cards, yahtzee and a dvd.

Thanks Cathy & Howard hope to return next year.
