La Grande Voyageuse

Location: Etel
Capacity: 9 persons
Surface: 180 m2

Lagrandevoyageuse is the little sister of lapetitevagabonde, only bigger! More than just a gîte, lagrandevoyageuse is a home for living, a house designed for getting together with family or friends, while preserving privacy. With its generous proportions and simple, meticulous decoration, lagrandevoyageuse is exclusively reserved for welcoming travellers – holidaymakers or digital nomads – or trainees for retreats and seminars. A house typical of Etoile architecture from the 1930s, enlarged and modernized in the 2000s, and completely renovated in 2023. Today, it reflects a harmonious combination of the old and the new, blending luminous spaces with secret nooks and crannies.

Just 2 steps from the marina and the ria d’Etel, close to shops, the weekly market and the ocean, lagrandevoyageuse is a haven of peace, a place to recharge one’s batteries for a vacation, a telecommuting break or a meditative retreat.

At lagrandevoyageuse, you can leave your car in the parking lot and enjoy your vacation in “slow” mode, on foot or by bike.

Lagrandevoyageuse has 5 bedrooms, 4 bathrooms with shower, and 2 separate WCs. It is accessible to people with reduced mobility.

Outside school vacations, you can reserve the ground floor of the gîte only, and enjoy a 120 m2 house with 2 large bedrooms and private bathrooms, for 4 people. Lagrandevoyageuse then becomes the traveler. Upstairs bedrooms are available at extra cost, depending on your needs. Please do not hesitate to contact us.
