The Gite Tranquille - Rental - Holidays & weekends in La Chapelle-Thémer

The Gite Tranquille is a comfortable cottage with two bedrooms located in the small hamlet of La Jousselinière in the Vendée countryside. 40 minutes from Puy du Fou and 50 minutes from the beaches of the Vendée. Ideal for families or for a couple who want to escape the stress life ! The house is located on a quiet lane, with little traffic and has off road parking. The views from the bedrooms are very nice - with an orchard of cherry trees and walnut trees around a large lawn. The cottage has all modern comforts (Wi-Fi, dishwasher, washing machine) and is in a central location for most of the nearby tourist attractions. This is an ideal place to relax from the stress of everyday life - there is sunbathing in the private garden and one can explore the country paths nearby. Inside, the ground floor is open with a living / dining room at one end and a fully equipped kitchen at the other. There is a tv (uk tv channels), Wi-Fi Internet connection and a bookcase full of books and games. Upstairs there are two bedrooms - one with a double bed and shower room and one with two single beds and a bathroom. A third single bed, or a cot, can be added to the twin room if needed. Outside there is a table and chairs for al fresco meals. There is also a private lawn area with sun loungers. The cottage has a view of the large garden and orchard - with bowling alley, table tennis and picnic areas. The area has many good restaurants, many sales of locally caught seafood or other Vendée specialties. It is renowned for being a microclimate here, and the Vendée is the second sunniest part of France ! The owners live next door and are very friendly and enjoy meeting new people and helping them explore the area.

Best Gite ever
The Gite is very well equipped, the hosts even supplying milk, home made bread, wine, etc. It was very well-equipped and extremely comfortable. The hosts were also very friendly and gave us lots of information about the area, including a timetable for Puy Du Feu, a theme park not to be missed. Lovely location and great for walking. Would give it 5 stars for all headings.

Delightful 2 week stay at Le Gite Tranquille
Having stayed all over France, this gite stood out thanks to the friendliness of the owners Martin and Vicky. Their inclusive but unobtrusive hospitality enabled us to get the best out of the places we visited; to enjoy their restaurant recommendations and knowledge of the Vendee; and benefit from their introductions to wine producers; not to mention being given the freedom to use their large and beautiful garden. It is indeed a tranquil place and we came home greatly rested. The gite itself was very comfortable and well equipped and we would highly recommend it.

Like home from home with outdoor space
We have been here before and feel that Vicky and Martin are friends. They are well informed about nearby events and places to visit and we feel more like house guests than clients.
