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.

This was a great place to stay. We enjoyed an extremely relaxing week in a fantastic gite.

It was furnished and maintained to a very high standard and had everything we needed.

The gite was very clean throughout.

The host was extremely welcoming and nothing was too much bother.

The pool was great and the children loved it. Great for cooling off when hot.

The setting was just what we were looking for and we found everything we needed in the local town.

This was very much a relaxing holiday for us however the host was very knowledgeable about things to do in the area.

We definitely plan to return for longer and would highly recommend to others.

This our fifth year at La Haye Claire, and once again we have had a very relaxing most enjoyable holiday. The gite is always well presented very clean and tidy with all you need to make your stay comfortably and memorable, there is also. Heated swimming pool ( cleaned EVERY day ). All this is made possible by the owner Nadia who lives on site but you done see unless you require her assistance. Nadia is a wonderful host and will do all she can to make sure you have peaceful, relaxing stay.There ares lots of places to visit and things to do for those who like to do those things. The nearest sea beach is about 1 1/4 hours away. If you don't require the pool then take a look at Nadia's other house just a few miles away. I urge you to book this house if you want a super holiday we have booked 3 weeks for next year.
