Our trip to La Blatière was our first experience of a gite holiday and it did not disappoint!
A short flight from Edinburgh to Nantes, we were met on arrival by our smiling hosts, Lesley & Paul. They drove us to the beautiful location of La Blatière and showed us around their grounds. Included was a heated under cover pool, a picnic area and car park outside our Stable gite for our use. The Stable was fantastic! Very clean, spacious and homely with some welcomed necessities including coffee, tea etc. The decor had lovely modern touches of France and we received a lovely La Blatière welcome bag with a bottle of wine, a fresh baguette, butter, milk and a big bottle of water.
On our first day we drove to La Rochelle, a sweet seaside town with lots of bars and restaurants and some amazing patisseries to choose from.
On day 2 we took a short 40 min walk to L’Absie where we had a drink or two in the local cafe bar.
Each trip allowed us to take in the beautiful rural, scenic countryside and the fresh country air.
Our hosts were fantastic, very knowledgable about the local area and sight seeing as well as super friendly and approachable.
Overall, a perfect trip. We’ll be back!
