Très moyen

  • 2 of 5

Les photos d'accrochent ne sont pas celles du gîte mais de la maison d'en face !!! Accès extérieur loin d'être aussi bien entretenu. Le jardin en friche mobilier extérieur sale et détérioré. Ménage non fait à l'intérieur : frigo non dégelé et non nettoyé lits cassés, fuite d'eau dans une chambre deux lits complètement mouillés inutilisables . Toile d'araignée de partout . Nous avon du passer l'aspirateur avant de nous installer ......

Propriétaire négligent au possible difficulté à récupérer notre chèque de caution (il l'avait perdu .....) ouf on l'a retrouvé trempé ! Après l'avoir suivi jusque chez lui, dans son jardin au milieu de ses plantations de la veille ....... Dommage car cette location à un énorme potentiel.

Manque d'équipements

  • 2 of 5

Ce lot de trois gîtes est en fait une seule maison découpée artificiellement en trois. On n'imagine pas cependant cohabiter avec plusieurs groupes. Cela ressemble plus à une astuce pour maximiser la location.

Si la maison en soit est jolie, il n'y a pas de jardin.

Le point faible est qu'elle manque cruellement d'équipements de cuisine, de vaisselle et de ménage qu'il faut vraiment apporter si vous voulez être tranquille.

Il y a trois mini cuisines qui, si on est nombreux, vous contraignent à cuisiner dans une chambre et dans un couloir.

La literie est entièrement à revoir et je conseille à minima d'apporter ses oreillers.

Proximité puy du fou 45min.

Grand gite, la plupart des chambres très spacieuses, avec des chauffeuses supplémentaires (non comptabilisées dans l'annonce) donc bien pratiques pour les enfants!

Des espaces kitchenettes avec frigo et plaques dans 3 endroits différents.

Une immense table! Chauffage impec'.

Le propriétaire est très arrangeant pour les horaires et le nombre d'enfants présents!

La Caillère-Saint-Hilaire, Vendée, a small village set in the Pays de la Loire region of France, is just five minutes away from this farm which has been operational since 1825. The village has all the necessary amenities for an enjoyable stay, including restaurants, bars and a grocery within 1.1 kilometres of your door. The quiet area surrounding this peaceful cottage is full of fresh air and offers visitors the chance to explore hiking trails, go horseback riding, learn how to fish in nearby rivers or, for those with children in tow, visit the local zoo and museum.

Within 50 kilometres of this spacious cottage, there are plenty of activities to fill your days. The beaches of La Faute-sur-Mer are sure to please any sun or water-loving holidaymakers. Additionally, the historical amusement park known as Puy du Fou is only 41 kilometres from the apartment and is sure to please the entire family. Alternatively, play a round of golf at Golf Blue Green de la Domangère or wander through Green Venice, a gorgeous, nearby nature park. The Marais Poitevin and Forest Mervent also make lovely excursions for nature-lovers who wish to explore the green marshes of western France. Wherever you choose to explore on your holiday in Vendée, you are sure to make memories that will last a lifetime.
