Clean, spacious property within reach of Vendee beaches.

  • 4 of 5

We stayed in the Hideaway for a week in August 2016. We enjoyed visiting many of the local attractions.

We found it a clean, spacious property 25-30 minutes away from lovely Vendee beaches. It is situated just outside a very quiet village, with one small shop. The accommodation comprises of 2 bedrooms, a bathroom with a good shower and a large kitchen / living area. The whole property was well equipped. The "Intex Pool" and large garden were ideal in the hot weather and will create a lot of fun for children.

The TV didn't work very well during our stay and we found the furniture, whilst being very French, to be quite uncomfortable.

The Hidaway is an ideal holiday property for a family happy to drive a distance to the lovely beaches.

An ideal Villa, so accessible for our wheelchair user son. The Villa was so clean, well maintained, spacious and loads of hot water! Rural setting,safe and peaceful. The owner responded to queries immedialty and was so helpful. The beach at Les Sables-d'Olonne 20 mins drive was gorgeous. Even had Aqua Chairs to go across sand and into the sea for the disabled. The Villa is so central to visit various towns and sites. We had a wonderful stay.

On a adoré nos vacances à Martinet

  • 4 of 5

Nous avons passés de très bonnes vacances à Martinet dans un gîte au calme.

James nous a accueilli très gentillement et nous a préparé le gîte avec une grande attention et nous le remercions.

La maisonnette est à 20 min des Sables d'Olonnes et à 10 min des commerces en voiture.

La piscine, par forte chaleur, est appréciable et les figues au fond du jardin sont délicieuses.

Nous ne nous sommes pas servi de la TV sauf pour regardé un Disney pour les enfants. Sinon un petit gîte avec tout le confort nécessaire pour une semaine de détente et pour reprendre des forces.

Une déconnection complète qui fait du bien.

Merci James,


la famille Rolland.
