• Welcome to

    La Tannerie


  • We have had the most perfect stay at La Petite Tannerie, this is the best equipped Gite we’ve ever stayed in, sharp knives! Sounds trite, but the small things matter; also immaculately clean. Swimming pool and garden beautiful. 
    This stay gave us exactly what we wanted, quiet, comfort and space to have a good rest at a slower pace. 
    Many thanks to Emma and David, both for their good taste and creating a home from home. 
    PS and they sorted the weather!

    We have had the best holiday at La Tannerie, everything was so much more than we expected from the website description and photographs, which whilst beautiful was more amazing than we thought. Stunning actually. Well done Emma and David. The property was spotlessly clean throughout, very well equipped, the pool was lovely, the gardens very homely and all of these things equated to a holiday property that felt like a welcome home. Emma and David were brilliant hosts, very helpful with answering questions and making suggestions for parking etc, and as a bonus we feel like we’ve gained two new friends to boot. We left (reluctantly) refreshed and chilled having enjoyed the whole week. We have booked to return next year so what more can we say to recommend a stay there? To be honest we think we should keep it a secret in case Emma and David get too popular and we can’t get in! 😁

  • I really cannot recommend la Tannerie enough..this is our third stay here which speaks volumes of how great this place is. Everything is five star from the accommodation, location and finally the hosts Emma and Dave. You could not wish for two more welcoming friendly people. Nothing is ever too much trouble. Vix is a lovely location.. the village has some great shops and a lovely little bar … Please visit..you won’t regret it!

    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

    Lovely apartment- spotlessly clean with everything you could need on holiday. Great patio area and beautiful pool in immaculate garden. Emma and David are perfect hosts – friendly, hospitable, generous but never intrusive.

    Enjoyed seeing Tour de France go through the village and the fireworks. Great visits to the Ile de Re and La Rochelle .

    Thank you again, Emma and David for a wonderful holiday . We do hope to be back.

    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 !
