Character house of 160 sqm in the Vendée countryside
100% refund if canceled at least 60 days before arrival date.
Perfect in every way - the pictures do not do it justice.
Can we please take La Metairie everywhere we go in the future? I can only echo all the other reviews.
Tastefully restored, spotlessly clean, loads of space, great views and everything else you could think to need in a home.
Although the house was well placed to venture into the Vendee, on most days we chose to laze around the pool and patio. To ease our guilt, some mornings we undertook the 4 mile walk around the lake. The local supermarket has everything you need including a variety of pork or beef kebabs which are best cooked on the outside grill with an ice cold beer in hand, looking out over the lake - heaven!.
In addition to the above, it was all the other little things that added to our stay, including ample clean linen and cutlery, coffee maker, the home cinema, wifi in very room (for the kids!!), the pool furniture, the patio furniture etc. etc.
We have stayed in properties in France, Spain and Italy - this is best.
All of the above, plus Monique was an absolute honey.
We would certainly come here again.
What a wonderful holiday!
Our family of four adults and three children stayed at Chateau Guibert for 2 weeks in June 2018 and from the moment we arrived, our host Monique made us extremely welcome. The spacious property was amazing, with everything available that you could possibly need for a comfortable stay.....the swimming pool was enjoyed every day!
We have been going to France on holiday for a number of years and this has to be the very best property we have stayed at. Thank you Monique for your hospitality ....we would recommend this property without hesitation!

Chers Marianne et Philip, votre famille est adorable et ce fut pour moi un plaisir de vous accueillir et d'être disponible pendant votre séjour à La Métairie de Fond-Guibert.
I will be happy to see you again.
The perfect home for a relaxing weekend in the french countryside, it doesnt get any better
I can not recommend this property enough, it was faultless in every way.
This is not just a house but a home, upon arrival Monique (the owner) made us feel very welcome and showed us around, making sure we were settled in before leaving us to enjoy the property for our long weekend.
The whole property is beautifully decorated with a homely rustic feel. Although rustic the finish and quality is superb, the mattresses were very comfy, and the kitchen is better equipped than in my own home. Even the TV was top of the range with a great sound system and quick wi-fi. It was also spotless from top to bottom.
We stayed as a group of eight and everyone had plenty of space to come and go as they needed. You will need cars though as the nearest town with any shops are around 7km away, but even that is a small town with just a few places. However that was exactly what we wanted, it was very tranquil and made you feel a million miles away from the hustle and bustle of everyday life.
Getting from La Rochelle airport to the accommodation was very easy and takes around an hour by car, with a large supermarket around 20mins away (but en-route).
We are all looking forward to going back again, although it was very pretty in the winter I think when it's warm it will be even nicer with the use of the large private pool and lots of outdoor activities.
Großartiges Ferienhaus in ruhiger Natur
Das Haus in sehr ruhiger Lage ist überaus hochwertig und perfekt ausgestattet. Die Einrichtung ist mit viel Liebe zum Detail gestaltet. Der Blick sowohl aus der großen hellen Wohnküche wie auch aus dem Garten auf See, Wald und Wiesen ist atemberaubend. Alles ist sehr sauber. Bequeme Betten, umfängliche Ausstattung an Handtüchern, Geschirrtüchern und Tischwäsche. Die Küche ist bestens mit vielen verschiedenen Geräten, etc. bestückt. Kerzen und viele andere Accessoires machen das Anwesen besonders gemütlich und strahlen eine sehr erholsame Atmosphäre aus. Auch ist ein hervorragender Gasgrill vorhanden.
Die Vermieter haben uns herzlich empfangen und waren hervorragende Gastgeber. Sie haben den Pool umfassend und sehr regelmäßig gereinigt. Wir kommen sehr gerne wieder.
We thank you a lot for your great message about our family house. It was a pleasure to welcome people who appreciate our cottage and feel good in it.
We keep communicate in English with you as we've done during your holidays.

The property was very clean, modern and comfortable. The kitchen was extremely well equipped and the bath/shower rooms were very well equipped and we were supplied with ample towels and linens.The owners were very charming, welcoming and helpful.
The view from the kitchen/dining area was very pleasant and in spite of some dismal weather during the week we were very warm and cosy and appreciated the log burning stove and the underfloor heating.
The property and our welcome by the owners exceeded our best expectations and I would not hesitate to recommend this holiday home.
Thank you very much it was a pleasure to welcome you
Christian et Monique
Charme et confort!
Le charme de cette maison paysanne rénovée avec un goût remarquable fait que notre séjour à Château-Guibert aura été synonyme de découverte, d'enchantement et de ressourcement. L'accueil des propriétaires de cette maison, très bien équipée à l'intérieur comme à l'extérieur, et dotée de salles de bains privatives pour chacune des trois chambres, ajoute le petit plus qui permet à tout locataire de se sentir comme il le souhaite afin de visiter une région dont l'offre est riche et variée.
Encore merci pour les excellents pots de confiture maison et pour l'hospitalité qui nous a été offerte.
Les familles Chevalier et Gremion
Nous apprécions tous vos compliments, notre plaisir recevoir nos hôtes dans une maison aménagée pour le confort, le calme et le dépaysement de chacun. Mais nous sommes aussi aidés pour l'accueil culturel, par notre beau département de Vendée, atout essentiel pour des vacances inoubliables.
