Today, the small hamlet of La Petite Guyonnière consists of seven individual properties. When originally built in the mid 19th century, it was a farm.  It has been a holiday destination for 18 years.  It is divided into two gites, a traditional Vendéen farmhouse “Le Marronnier” and an attached cottage “La Petite Bouleau”.  They can accommodate 12 and 4 people respectively.  As individual gites the rental prices are great value for money.  When booked together they are a bargin for large groups or families to holiday together.

Le Marronnier is a lovely example of a traditional Vendée style farmhouse. It sleeps up to 12 people in large tastefully furnished rooms.  It is  equipped to ensure that your stay is as comfortable as possible.  A home away from home.

La Petite Bouleau is a roomy cottage that comfortably sleeps up to 4 people.  Like the adjoining farmhouse it is spacious and well equipped. It has it’s own designated outside space to the rear, which leads out into the gardens.

Your gite holiday accommodation in the Vendée is just a few hours drive from the main channel ports, therefore, you could be starting your holiday the same day.  If long car journeys are not to your liking then the Airport at Nantes is only one hour away.  Ease of access makes La Petite Guyonnière an ideal base from which to discover this friendly and diverse area of France.


Exploring the area is a pleasure due to the extensive and well maintained road network. Outside of major towns, the traffic density is low, so you spend less time sitting in traffic and more time exploring.  Everything is within easy reach, historical sites, lively coastal resorts or picturesque towns and villages.  The  Vendée boasts over 160 km of wide sandy beaches.  Close by there is the calm of St Gilles-Croix-de-Vie (28km), or if you prefer hustle and bustle, then there is St Jean-de-Monts (33km).  The countryside is diverse, from open fields to woodland, marshland to sand dunes, the Vendée is perfect for ramblers and nature lovers.  The great variety of birds will be appreciated by ornitholigists in particular.

Getting Physical

For cycling enthusiasts, there are over 1800km of first rate cycle paths. The largest lake in the Vendée (167 hectares) is only 2.5km away. There are Golf Courses within easy reach and many other sports and leisure activities.  This area is ideal for serious training regimes, particularly “Triathlon” as the terrain is varied, open water is close-by and French drivers are “cycle friendly”.
