The story of our Le Petit Monty guest house

Our guest house in the Puy du Fou was born of a dream…

Creating bed and breakfasts is the quintessential French dream.

I love the idea of welcoming people into their homes, the diversity of the houses and the opportunity to meet and talk. For me, a real guest house is one where you’re made very welcome and where the owner has made the effort to make everything as comfortable as possible. The richness of a bed and breakfast is that it allows everyone to find the room they like and to leave with a head full of memories and the feeling of having spent a special moment in life.

Nothing predestined me for this kind of activity, but it was a change in my professional life that led me in this direction. “I was Marketing Manager for a wellness company in La Baule. My husband didn’t like it on the coast, so I quit my job and we moved to the Vendée…” The idea was in the back of my mind. The idea had been in the back of my mind for years but I didn’t know how to get started… And… when I arrived a few minutes from Puy Du Fou in a beautiful renovated farmhouse with a few outbuildings, the idea was born…

Opening of our guest house at the Puy du Fou in 2013

The first guest room was opened in June 2013 and since then the number of guests has been increasing.
So it was only natural that we should open 2 new rooms… a successful gamble! They opened on 30 April 2017.

Then, in August 2018, a great offer…
For 26 years, Régina and André ran 5 guest rooms on Les Montys site. They were the first hosts to embark on the crazy adventure with Puy Du Fou park… Régis, their son, wanted to take over the business and it was only natural that our association should create the Pond Side & Garden Side lodgings, 2 large-capacity lodgings that opened for the 2019 season…

Development and creation of a relaxation area for gîtes and guest rooms

After the COVID crisis, we wanted to offer our guests an extra cocoon. So between 2022 and 2023, we created a vast relaxation area under an old hangar located directly in front of the house.

A private heated swimming pool (26-27°C), armchairs and deckchairs are available for our guests to relax to the sound of the outdoor sound system after a busy day…
We have also set up an outdoor kitchen and numerous leisure activities on site. Ping-pong, pétanque, jeu du roi, molky, balls, books and board games are available to delight young and old alike!

So there’s always more to offer our guests, and above all, a real break from the hustle and bustle of Vendée countryside…

A change of life for a successful guest house

A choice to live and work differently that I don’t regret at all. “I love what I do, and I wouldn’t go back to a traditional job for anything in the world”.

As for the success of this guest house, I owe it to a number of factors: the location, just 5 minutes from Puy Du Fou, the tasteful decor, perhaps the excellent breakfast, the excellent referencing of my website and… word of mouth.

Don’t hesitate… Come and visit the Petit Monty, 5 minutes from Puy Du Fou…
