We thoroughly enjoyed a very hot week in this lovely gite. The pool and outdoor area are great. The village location suited us very well and the boucherie is super. We really enjoyed the evening market at Marans and a trip to La Rochelle. There is everything you could possibly need for a good holiday at this property and it is evident that it is extremely well cared for by it’s welcoming owners.
We had a wonderful and memorable week at La Tannerie. Dave and Emma could not have made us feel any more welcome. The house itself is fantastic. There is a large and well equipped kitchen dinner, each of the bedrooms are spacious and on-suite. The property in general is outstanding, being well equipped, clean and tastefully decorated. There are TV’s in the living room and each bedroom with UK channel’s available.
The grounds of the house is a key feature of this property. Dave and Emma have clearly spent a lot of time maintaining the garden to a high standard. The pool is a real asset of the property. It is clean and well maintained. We spent many hours playing in the pool and relaxing in the garden. We also used the fantastic BBQ on several occasions. Other features of the property include secure off street parking and a high quality outdoor table and chairs set complete with shade.
The property is located in a pleasant village called Vix. We bought BBQ meat from the local butchers and fresh croissants and baguettes from the patisserie, all just a few minutes walk from the property. Village also has a Pizzeria and small convenience store. The wider area has beautiful rivers, lakes and forests all within easy driving or cycling distance. Many of the canal and river side villages have boat hire available. La Rochelle and local beaches are 30 minutes drive.
I won’t hesitate to recommend both the property and location to holiday makers of all ages

The apartment is beautifully presented with everything needed for an enjoyable stay.
The owners Emma and David are fabulous, so welcoming and helpful. They definitely go “above and beyond”. We will recommend them to anyone we know looking to stay in the area.
I recently attended one of David’s sausage making courses, thoroughly enjoyable and a great way to learn how to make the best sausages I have ever tasted, I can highly recommend this course to anyone.
As well as the course, I received a great welcome from David and Emma along with tea and homemade biscuits, what a bonus !
Thank you Emma and David, we came for a good rest and have had a lovely week. We will remember your first class hospitality and (of course) the excellent meals we have shared with you, they really have all been superb !! Many thanks, Mary and Richard

Emma and David have a lovely home set in a quiet but ameanable village with a shop, tabac, butchers, bakers and a friendly restaurant. The beaches are a short and easy 40 minute drive away. The house is stunning with lots of space and well equipped kitchen. The swimming pool was lovely and warm. Emma and David are fantastic hosts and are there in the background should you need any help which is very reassuring, a truly beautiful place. We had a relaxing stress free week. Amazing!!!
Holiday Date: AUGUST 2017
We couldn’t have asked for more, property is extremely clean and fully equipped with plenty of space for us all. Bedrooms being all ensuite was a huge bonus along with free WIFI throughout the property and garden. We had a BBQ which was prepared by David and Emma and was excellent, it also gave us a chance to ask about the area and what there was for us to see and do, as it was we spent just about the whole week enjoying the private garden and heated swimming pool. Although the property is in the centre of the village it is peaceful, there is an excellent bakers and butchers at the end of the road which we visited almost every day. Beautiful property and we would definitely recommend it and return.
