Our second year at La Haye Claire and another lovely 2weeks. We traveled with our two older children and having WiFi and a private pool they were very happy. We had a good mix off weather, very little rain, but this gave us a chance to get out more than last year when the temperature dropped below the mid 20's, the area has some great places to see, very pretty villages along the loire and some nice walks. Visited the Bioparc zoo and would recommend for all ages, Nadia has a discount card you can use. This is definitely a place we will return to. Than you Nadia for a lovely holiday.

Having been visiting this property every year since 2010 we obviously like it very much this is due to the friendlyness of the owner Nadia. Always available if you need her assistance but never intrudes on you privicey. The house is alway very clean on arrival with all the facilities you require to make your holiday a memorable experience. The the best facility is of course the swimming pool which is cleaned every morning. Heated by a solar mat so the hotter the sun the warmer the pool, it is in a private position at the bottom of the large garden which has lots of plum trees. I would recommend this house to either Famalies or couples who want a peaceful relaxing holiday. There are lots of interesting place to visit within a few hours drive if that's what you like or if the weather is unkind as it was for us this year. We have booked for next year

August 2016 - 2 weeks holiday with two adults and two teenagers. This is the best Gite we have stayed in, excellent value for money. The house is very spacious and comes with everything you need for a very relaxed holiday. It's located in a quiet location but only 5 min from the local town with all its amenities. We wanted a quiet holiday this year and that was exactly what we got, the kids had wifi, pool and we're very happy. If you want lots to do the owner Nadia has loads of info on every type of activity or place to vist if you want it. Nadia is always on hand if you need her but gives you your privacy which is just right. All in all a fantastic holiday.

we have visited this house for the last 6 years, we have had a wonderful relaxing holiday each time, sometimes with other family member. this year we had 3 weeks on our own, we were very fortunate with the weather. In the pool everyday, sometimes 3 or 4 times to keep cool there are lots of places to visit if its a bit dull or if you want to, the coast about 1 3/4 hrs away and La Rochell 2 hrs. The owner of the gite Nadia lives in the adjoining house, she is always available should you need advice or assistance but NEVER intrudes on your holiday. She is a wonderful host. The house has always been very clean on arrival with a small welcoming food pack. there is everything you need for you comfort, bedding and towels changed weekly. If it is not very sunny the pool can be cool at times 24deg.but when the sun is out its 28deg. ( pool towels provided ) You need a car as any amenities you need , restaurants supermarkets ect are 4 to 5 kilometres away, but you have picked a rural setting. We have already booked for a further 3 weeks in 2017 and cant wait
If you want a relaxing holiday in a rural setting La Haye Claire is for you.
