Based in the Southern Vendee and in the heart of the Marais Poitevin region of France. We are located in the centre of a typical French village and are just a 2 minute walk from an excellent butcher and bakery along with 2 convenience shops, pharmacy, post office, bar and a Pizzeria to either eat in or take away. The Vendee beaches are some of the best in France and are a 50 minutes drive with the historic town and International airport of La Rochelle just 45 minutes drive.
Exclusivity of the Farmhouse, during July / August, sleeping up to 6 people
A lovely spot and beautiful house
Had a lovely week’s stay at La Tannerie. Emma and David were great hosts – very welcoming and available if needs be, but otherwise left you to enjoy your holiday. They have created a lovely house and home – the rooms are spacious, modern and well furnished etc and the garden beautifully kept with the huge advantage of your own heated pool. The village itself provided what you would hope for – a fabulous butcher and baker and some great pizza too! Wish we could have stayed longer! I would thoroughly recommend anyone stay at La Tannerie – from couples like ourselves to families.

Emma and David met us on arrival and made our stay really welcoming We enjoyed a fantastic evening meal from their own kitchen ( well worth booking ) The Petite Tannerie was both comfortable and well equipped. The small town of Vix is ideal for visiting both La Rochelle, the coastal towns and the vendee inland waterways. June 2015
Lovely apartment, spotlessly clean and well supplied with many extras. Lovely patio area for sitting outside.Garden and pool were immaculate. Emma and David were the perfect hosts -generous, friendly and helpful but never intrusive. The meals we had with them were amazing – Emma is an excellent cook. They were very helpful with suggestions of places to visit – we particularly enjoyed the Ile de Re. We cannot recommend highly enough. Thank you Emma and David – we will be back! — 30-Jun-2016
We were welcomed by Emma & David as soon as we drove in. The Farmhouse is a lovely size, very clean & comfortable. We had been left a few essentials butter, juice, tea, coffee, milk & WINE! Which really helped.
The pool was used every day I think we loved it. We used the charcoal BBQ around 5/6 nights sitting outside under the shaded canopy. The patisserie is a 3 minute walk selling fresh baguettes & lots of other yummy things but is closed on a Wednesday.
The garden is stunning with lots of beautiful plants & homegrown veg. I made Chilli burgers one night for the BBQ with a few fresh chillies that Emma said we could help ourselves too my husband said it was the best burger ever!
If you are looking for a relaxing holiday away from all the crowds this is the place. Also having free wi-fi & UK TV was great too.
Thank you Emma & David for being lovely hosts & we would love to come back again.

Excellent B & B, excellent food, excellent hosts. What more could you want!
Absolutely nothing, I urge you to book. Eileen Williams, June 2016
We opted for the arrival BBQ and what a great decision. Emma & David are so welcoming and the food was excellent – we felt at home straight away. The property and grounds are in fabulous condition and perfect for our party of 6. Our two small children were both welcomed and catered for – our 4 year old even enjoyed some gardening duties and received an award! Rural location as described but plenty within easy driving distance. Fabulous bakery and butchers in the village – literally a 2 minute walk. Would definitely return. — 14-Jul-2016
“This was our second visit to La Tannerie and I am pleased to say it was as good as ever. Hosts Emma & David do their best to make your stay and nothing is too much trouble. Bedrooms are immaculate and there is a small sitting room for B&B guests as well as the pool area. I would definitely recommend ordering evening meal which is fantastic both in quality and value.”
“We had an extremely pleasant stay with all facilities laid on in a spacious and spotless house. Emma and David were very hospitable and shared huge amounts of local knowledge with us as we stayed with them on a trip to help us decide whether to move to France in general and this area in particular. They gave us a lot of useful advice on moving over and what to consider, local contacts and so on. Nothing was too much trouble and they far exceeded our expectations all round. Book with them and enjoy your holiday!”
“Having stayed in many Bed and Breakfast la Tannerie is the nicest one. Emma and David are excellent hosts and very knowledgeable about the area. Emma is a super cook and I would strongly recommend eating here which is great value for money. The property is immaculate and the swimming pool and gardens maintained to a very high standard, will definitely be returning”
“The description and pictures of the gite on the website are very accurate, it’s a really lovely place, beautifully restored. Emma and David were perfect hosts, being available ‘next door’ to answer questions and provide help/suggestions on places to visit and routes for running and cycling. But never there unless we asked for help (or perhaps offering us some veg from the garden!). The pool was lovely to take a dip in, eating meals at the table in the garden was lovely and it was great to have the ‘home comforts’ of Freeview and WiFi! Thoroughly recommended.”
