La Tourelle Enchantée is a charming, picturesque retreat set in an acre of natural French habitat where you will be greeted with a warm welcome. The gîte offers something a little different as you get your very own 'turret' to stay in, sleeping up to 4 people. We are just 10 minutes from the sandy beaches of Bretignolles-sur-Mer and Saint Gilles-Croix-de-Vie on the Vendee coastline. It is good for couples, solo adventurers and families.


The gîte is independent, with private entry gained through either the south facing double doors or side door leading into the kitchen area. On the ground floor the gîte features a brand new fully equipped kitchen area and a newly installed bathroom which incorporates a toilet, hand basin and a large shower. There is a comfortable and spacious lounge/dinning area which is furnished with an easy to use large sofa-bed which can be used to sleep 2 guests. There is a handy storage cupboard under the stairs where clothes and bags can be stored for those sleeping downstairs. It also contains an airer, hoover and fan. For your convenience there are a number of English extension leads in the gite so you don't need to worry about bringing travel adapters with you so one less thing for you to have to pack!

On the first floor is a large bedroom with a king size bed and a small child's single bed (the bed is 160cm long) on the mezzanine. Access to the mezzanine is via a narrow staircase and caution must be taken and children supervised.

Please note: the gîte is strictly non-smoking and we are unable to accommodate pets.


La Tourelle Enchantée gîte guests are free to share the use of the indoor solar heated swimming pool facilities (summer only) and can enjoy their own patio dining area. Wi-fi is available to guests free of charge. There is ample parking on site.


Guests will be staying in the independent turret next to our residence. We will be on hand and happy to help if needed.

We are both English speaking but can speak a very basic level of French.


Check in time is between 16:00 - 22:00 and checkout by 10:00.

Please note we are animal lovers and have a number of our own pets, all of which are friendly. Our animals will be kept separate and will not have access to your accommodation, but if you have any allergies or concerns please feel free to contact us.

Please note during the peak season we require a 7 night minimum booking (Saturday to Saturday only) and 3 night minimum booking in mid and high season periods.

A damages deposit of £150 is required for the gîte booking.

You are asked to leave the gite in a clean and tidy condition. A standard charge of £50 (taken by Airbnb) is made for all bookings to cover the post-departure costs for cleaning and laundry.

We will collect this tax from our guests in cash during check in. It is used by the local councils for the improvement of local tourist facilities.

Nous avons passés un sejour formidable dans cette maisonnette athypique où Karen et Caroline nous ont fait un accueil chaleureux et 100 % anglais, parfait pour pratiquer la langue de Shakespeare. De tres belles attentions de leur part ont parsemées notre sejour. L'endroit est impecable et de bonne taille pour une famille avec des enfants en bas age. Les divers animaux, le beau potager et la piscine n'ont pas manqués d'occuper nos garçons. Nous recommandons chaleureusement cet endroit.

Karen est très accueillante et soucieuse du bien être des voyageurs. Très bon contact avant et pendant notre séjour (1 nuit). Le logement est agréable, la literie est très confortable. La cuisine est petite mais bien équipée. Je mettrai un bémol pour la salle de bain qui se résume à un bac à douche dans un réduit sous l'escalier et un lave main dans les toilettes.

We came in later than expected and the hosts could not meet us on arrival. They had prepared everything for us and the instructions were clear and we found the place without problems. Following morning Karen took her time to explain the area and suggest places to visit. The Gite is in the tower-like end of the building and it consists of two floors and an upper mezzanine on 1st floor that has a bed suitable for a smaller child. Three of us fit nicely in and the living area was sufficient and the outside patio extended the area nicely. Thanks to sunny weather throughout our stay, the outside areas were used a lot. I have to say it was very relaxing following the chicken (who were very social) and their seemingly important tasks. For an animal lover, this is the place to be. Our daughter loved the swimming pool and the goggles and other accessories were in constant use. The restaurants in St. Gilles are close enough and good quality groceries within 10 minutes drive. The west coast is full of beaches and they were clean and not crowded. All in all, we enjoyed our stay and can warmly recommend La Tourelle Enchantee for a base to explore Vendée.

We were welcomed on arrival, despite being a little earlier than expected. The location was excellent with nice local beaches and towns, and there is lots to do in the immediate area and slightly further afield. Our children enjoyed watching the chickens and playing in the pool. The main bedroom was really nicely furnished and kitchen very well equipped. The shower is quirky but perfectly functional. The gite is spotless. Excellent wifi.

We were greeted on arrival and shown around the accommodation, then directed to the nearest supermarket just in time before it closed at 8:00pm. A few essentials had been left which was helpful including fresh eggs from our hosts chickens. Although the chickens were roamed close tot he accommodation it is all fenced of and there was no smell or noise from them. We had one day of rain and the leaflets detailing local attractions came in handy. Although Karen and Caroline were in the adjoining part of the building along with B&B guests we felt as though we were not intruded upon and could relax in our own company of we wanted. At the same time our hosts were available and interested in what we had been doing and suggested places to visit. ur children loved staying in the bedroom due to the novelty of the design and the sofa-bed was comfortable. It was handy to have a bakery to walk to in the mornings and there is a choice of supermarkets a reasonable distance away. there were nearly woodlands to take walks in. There are many restaurants etc and beaches in St. Gilles a few miles away and and at smaller resorts in between. Thanks to Caroline and Karen for making our stay pleasant.

La tourelle enchantée est un endroit atypique ne manquant pas de charme. Karen a le sens de l accueil et sait mettre à l aise ses hôtes: boisson fraîche a votre arrivée, les oeufs frais de ses poules dans la cuisine,... . Si vous parlez anglais, vous pourrez échanger plus amplement. Amoureux des ballades à vélo, le site est parfait pour les départs. Bémol cependant sur le bruit de la route et la salle de bain très exigüe, pas adaptée pour des personnes à mobilité réduite. Nous avons passé un séjour très agréable et reposant!

คำตอบจาก Karen:
Thank you for your review, we are pleased that you had a wonderful break. To clarify to anyone looking to book, the upstairs bedroom is large and spacious. The downstairs lounge provides a sofa bed which when fully extended obviously reduces the size of the room, this is the space which is being referred to in the review above.

We have just returned from an amazing holiday here. Karen and Caroline were so welcoming and always went out of their way to make sure we had access to anything we needed. The welcome basket was delicious and very thoughtful after a long journey. The gite was very comfortable and well-equipped. It is a lovely, relaxing environment which the photos clearly show. The holiday met all our expectations with lovely beaches and towns to explore, alongside a bit of canoeing and relaxing time at the gite. Karen and Caroline are fantastic hosts and helped make our stay very memorable. We cannot recommend La Tourelle Enchantee highly enough and hope to go back again sometime.

So a little bit of background on us. My partner Caroline and I have just made the leap from the UK and moved to France as we felt that the time was right for us to have an adventure and do something different!

We have both left successful and demanding careers in the UK to get out of the rat race, have a better quality of life and time to enjoy the important things in life! I worked for many years as a teacher before moving into management within the NHS and a local charity. Caroline worked as an RSPCA Inspector a very rewarding yet heartbreaking job.

We are both animal lovers (naturally) and enjoy having more time to spend with our menagerie and are loving the abundance of wildlife in France often seen from our doorstep.

We are very excited to be starting our new business 'La Tourelle Enchantee' and are looking forward to welcoming our new guests.

Karen and Caroline
