About the property

Ideal for Families Sharing, Barn Conversion near La Tranche Sur Mer, Vendee, France - Village Location With All Amenities, Minutes From Sandy Beaches, Able To Sleep 9 Plus Babies

Heated/fenced swimming pool plus a hot tub and sauna :)

Le Pressoir has been restored to balance authentic rustic charm with modern day facilities. The 4 bedroom barn retains many original features such as stone walls, oak beams and floors and is just 10 minutes from 'Blue Flag' sandy beaches and a 2 minute walk (on the flat) from cafes/bars/restaurants and the weekly street market. Due to the configuration of the accommodation it suits larger families or 2 families sharing perfectly.

It has a heated and fenced 12m x 6m shared pool, hot tub and sauna. Private garden with chimney style BBQ, outside covered terrace, grassed area for the kids to run around and let off steam, Wi-Fi access, iPod docking station, large screen TV with UK TV channels, Wii & Xbox 360 consoles with fun family interactive games, Jacuzzi baths and a 5 burner range cooker to name but a few.

Specifically caters for the children, the heated and fenced pool as extra wide steps at the shallow end for the not so confident swimmers and a toddler pool slide. Le Pressoir also has a plethora of toys, books, family films and games to keep any age child entertained for many hours.

For families with babies we also include a steriliser, bottle warmer, food blender, travel cot, changing mat, baby bath, highchair and push chair.

20% discount off return Brittany Ferries car crossings for all guests so a huge saving for everyone! Please always give us a contact number when making an enquiry, as many replies end up in junk/spam folders.

Why Susan or Vicki chose Les-Sables-d'Olonne area

Renovated and updated this barn conversion is the perfect location for families holidaying together due to the centrally located social areas and the separate sleeping areas for each family ensuring plenty of privacy. It offers excellent accommodation in the heart of the village, (so you can pop down in the evening for great family meals) it is just minutes from sandy beaches and caters to each families need. This area has so much to offer families with kids from theme parks, to stunning sandy beaches, forest adventures to miles of incredible cycle tracks to enjoy. We really hope you and your family can enjoy the benefit of this property, the wonderful Vendee coastline and surrounding area.

What makes this barn unique

Booking a summer holiday for the whole family is probably one of the most important decisions us parents make each year! Getting it right of course is another matter! At Le Pressoir you will be delighted with the level of attention to detail put into getting this holiday home just right for the whole family. From an abundance of children's toys, games and books to the home cinema screen, UK TV, internet and Wii console, to princess dressing up clothes and slippers to the wonderful heated and fenced swimming pool with toddler slide - this property really does have it all. Sit back and enjoy a new kind of self catering family holiday on the beautiful Vendee coast.

Guestbook comments from the manager

"Le Pressoir is actually furnished to a higher standard than our own home, and equipped with more goodies so it seems only sensible to return again and again to this authentic French home. The gite was equipped with some very useful but not often found 'extras'. The children scarcely had time to make a dent in the DVD and video collection, luckily the weather was dry and we were out most days. The arrangement of the accommodation from the view point of housing two families very cleverly kept our two families apart for quiet/relaxing/washing times and together for meals and games. The proportions of the gite are very large, so the feeling of space is real and not just provided by the excellent arrangement of the accommodation. Each bathroom has a double bedroom either side of it, so that all 4 bedrooms had a locking door directly into one of the bathrooms so no creeping along the hallway hoping not to bump into a member of the other family! Highly recommended and very enjoyable stay"

Luxury property for relaxing family holiday

  • 5 of 5

We had a wonderful weeks stay in Le Pressoir this year. The booking process and travel pack received were excellent. We were a group of 2 families with young children (1-3 years) and found the range of toys and books very impressive. Both children's bedrooms had a large selection of toys for infants and older children, which kept them entertained for the week. The layout was perfect for 2 families as we had our own floor with 2 bedrooms and large bathroom each, with the large living area on another floor (and stairgates at each set of steps!). The children loved the pool area which was securely gated alongside our garden. There was also a small children's playground about 3 mins walk away in the village. Overall we would highly recommend this property and are planning our return already!

Superb property for a relaxing week with my family

  • 5 of 5

Honestly, the booking process, pre-arrival call & all the holiday treats at Le Pressoir were all excellent. I cannot find fault, it was all perfect! It was a lovely relaxing week, SUPERB, we will be back in 2016 for 2 weeks.

You can choose to relax by the pool with the children, take the short drive to Le Tranche Sur Mer for the beach or 1 of the adventure parks. My children had a great time.

Donna and her team make every effort to ensure you can relax by providing cleaning, babysitting services. There are plenty of toys for the children so no need to take any with you. Lots of thoughtful touches.

Superb family holiday

  • 5 of 5

We took our two girls (3 and 1) along with my parents (68 and 65) and had a fantastic time! The team had set up Le Pressoir specially for our two girls and they both adored it. It was perfectly thought through - from the fancy dress outfits that were hanging facing them when they first walked through the door, through to the range of toys, books and DVDs that were available.

The adults hadn't been forgotten - kitchen is superb and the bedrooms and bathrooms are lovely. The BBQ outside meant that chilled out evenings were perfectly catered for (the butchers down the road is excellent, but you'll need to make your own burgers!).

We did our research pretty thoroughly and what initially attracted us to Le Pressoir was the swimming pool. Safety for our kids was paramount (neither can yet swim) and Le Pressoir was ideal (gates, fenced off etc.) and the pool is heated. We found that when it was boiling hot outside, the pool felt a bit chilly for our 2 kids, but that was because they'd warmed up outside so much.

There's plenty to do in the area and we weren't bored once. The local team were outstanding and really helped make sure we were able to take full advantage of what was going on. They were exactly the right level of attentive - not in your face but always available and happy to pop by to give some advice on what was worth seeing. They helped make our holiday.

In summary, Le Pressoir was a special find. We'll be going back because they considered our kids first, it was safe and there was lots to do in the area to keep us all entertained. Loved it.

Happy family hols in great holiday home

  • 5 of 5

We had an excellent holiday at Beau Rivage. We had 3 children under 6 and the house was perfect for them. Our party consisted of 7 adults & 3 kids. The size of the house facilitated both socialising and privacy.

We loved the pool, the table tennis, swing ball and sitting at the outside table on the beautiful warm evenings. The toys were all well used and enjoyed.

The maintenance ladies were awesome, friendly and very helpful.

We liked La Roche beach the best with La Tranche sur Mer second and we found the local people friendly, helpful and very kind. Someone even turned in a lost driving licence to the police Smile

Talmont st Hilaire was a lovely day outing and good for the kids. The village of Longeville sur Mer is lovely and we were very happy we chose Beau Rivage so thank you.
