Introduction - A Brief Look At Our Gîtes
La Petite Guyonnière dates back to the mid 19th century and was originally a large farm. It has been a popular holiday destination since 2001. Each gîte is tastefully decorated, fully equipped and above all, comfortable. When reserved together, the two gîtes can accommodate up to 16 people, a great option for large families or groups. We also offer the ground floor of Le Marronnier during the months of May, Jun and Sep, which can sleep up to 8 people.
La Petite Guyonnière is divided into two gîtes, a traditional Vendéen farmhouse “Le Marronnier” and an attached cottage “La Petite Bouleau”. There is plenty of off-road parking, and space within our smaller barn to store bicycles and top-boxes, etc.
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 charming 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.

Our large and attractive swimming pool is heated and is open from May to Sep. The large sun terrace is equipped with parasols, sun-loungers and chairs, and a solar heated shower. In addition to a fence with a padlocked gate, there is also a pool-side alarm. Above all, safety is our main priority.

How to get here, how to make a reservation. In short, information on almost everything.....
The Vendée is of similar size to Devon, at 2,590 sq/miles. However, with less than half the population there is a feeling of space and tranquility. This feeling is magnified by an extensive and well maintained road network, consequently, it’s a pleasure to drive in the Vendée. Whilst coastal towns and villages can be busy during the summer months, most other areas are quiet. The Vendée is packed with tourist attractions, cultural sites and activities to suit all tastes and ages. The people are friendly, the food and wine are excellent – you can feel the pace of life slowing, what a combination!
Your gîte holiday accommodation in the Vendée is just a few hours drive from the main channel ports. So, you could be relaxing in our lovely, heated, swimming pool the same day.
We had a fabulous holiday here. We stayed in La Petite Bouleau, which was absolutely ideal for our requirements. The cottage and grounds were pristine, especially the pool. Diane and Chris were excellent hosts, and we’re grateful to them for providing us with exactly the right information about the local area to enable the ideal holiday for us. Chris’s advice about Puy du Fou was invaluable! The area itself is ideal, close to lots of places that suited the whole family. We wouldn’t hesitate to book again!
We have just left our beautiful holiday destination that is La Petite Guyonniere!! This was our first visit (out of hopefully many more to follow). What do I comment on first? There were so many things that made our stay special. Our hosts Chris and Diane
were so welcoming and helpful and truly added to the enjoyment of our stay.
