L'Autise...to our gite. We are a family run business located in the heart of Marais Poitevin, 40 min from La Rochelle airport, 27km from the sea if you were to take a bike and ride there or 50 km by car to the fantastic beaches of Vendee. We pride ourselves on being different to other gites available in the locality. We promote and encourage environmental living. Our house has been recently renovated to a very high standard using traditional materials available in the area.

Summer evening dinner at Paradis Vert



Being located in rural France you can indulge yourself in country living. Fresh vegetables can be bought locally (subject to seasonal availability), eggs and freshly baked bread can be delivered to your doorstep. Leave your car parked, take your bike and ‘lose’ yourself in countless bike routes or even better, explore 850km of navigable canals!!! That would be your challenge for a number of holidays in this idyllic location.


Why not treat yourself to a winter holiday? Sipping a glass of wine in front of a log fire with candles enhancing the romantic atmosphere....
We will make sure that your stay here will be an enjoyable one! Please look at our guests’ comments
