We really enjoyed our stay at La Tannerie with Emma and David. The house is beautiful and very well maintained. Whatever else you do try Emma’s evening meals she is a marvellous cook. Surrounding villages very pleasant especially Coulon and Arcais. Highly recommended.
Two nights in a beautifully restored, spacious old property. We were looked after royally by our hosts, Emma and David. They could not have done more to ensure our comfort and enjoyment including serving up delicious first classed food (and wine!). We didn’t get to use the pool but it looked first class !!!
This was our third stay with Emma and David and it keeps on getting better. We had a fantastic holiday in their beautiful modern and immaculate house.
Nothing is too much trouble and they are the perfect hosts – there if you need them but not in the way. They always make us feel very welcome and the kids love them both! We even enjoyed fresh veg from the garden.
The area has plenty to do if you want to get out, without being too busy. Worth a visit – Puy du Fou, Futuroscope and Parc Pierre du Brune. We spent a good week of our fortnight just relaxing by the pool however – bliss.
Thank you Emma and David for another great stay – I am sure we will be back!
We had a great week in this lovely Farmhouse. A well equipped kitchen, very clean throughout, comfy beds and all the tv channels. Great when the olympics is on! The children loved the pool and my husband the barbecue! Would definitely come again and recommend to friends.
There are really not enough good words to describe how lovely this place is..it was our second time here and it was even more relaxing and enjoyable than before… The owners Emma and David are most welcoming and nothing is too much trouble. La tannerie is spotlessly clean with all mod cons and it is perfect for relaxing and spending lazy days by the pool with trips to the wonderful bakers and butchers in the village, thrown in. However there are some beautiful villages nearby worth exploring as well as some lovely family friendly beaches to enjoy..but really you will not want to leave the beautiful place that is la tannerie and it has become a firm holiday favourite for many years to come.
Emma & David were the perfect hosts from the welcome BBQ on our first day to the farewell we received on our last. The farmhouse and grounds are beautiful and the fresh vegetables from David’s garden were amazing. The pool was fab and the children (and adults) loved playing in it. Being able to wander up the road for fresh croissants & bread every morning was also a bonus. There are loads of places to explore in the local area and La Rochelle is only a short distance away. I would highly recommend privately renting this farmhouse, with the confidence that Emma & David are trustworthy and helpful with every step of your holiday. Thank you once again, we had a fantastic holiday
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.
