Guestbook comments from the manager

"Being able to simple walk to the village for our shopping and to get something to eat was just perfect, your gites are in the perfect location for a family with children and we couldnt of asked for any more toys to entertain the kids - thanks so much"

"We think the beds were the real bonus, what a fantastic surprise to have comfortable beds. Excellent holiday - thanks for thinking of those extra touches too! Perfect location, excellent facilites a real find... We will be back"

Had a great holiday at this beautiful gite this summer. A real "home from home" with all the facilities we needed to hand - the kitchen was well equipped and everything very clean. The kids really enjoyed the pool and there were plenty of games, toys and dvds to keep them occupied on days we didn't venture out.

The location is fantastic, near the beach and lots of attractions in the area. We can really recommend a visit to Puy du Fou! Sunshine, swimming and cheap wine - great!"

Great location, fantastic house, 1st class service

  • 5 of 5

We had a fantastic stay at La Pergola in Angles. From the start the booking process was smooth and comprehensive and the travel pack provided us with plenty of information to help prepare for the holiday. All four children (aged 3,6, 9 and 10) were fully entertained with the wide selection of toys, DVDs and computer games.

Having a team on site was reassuring, provided informed advice about the area and available activities and quickly sorted the problem we had with the wifi.

The area itself was perfect! A short walk (even for small children!) to the centre of town with a small supermarket, couple of bakers, bar and a selection of restaurants. A short drive to 2 large and huge supermarkets and really close to so many lovely beaches we struggled to visit them all!!

Fantastic for kids- and adults too!

  • 5 of 5

We had such a wonderful and relaxed holiday that we are rebooking for next year and taking friends. We travelled with a baby of 5 months and a toddler of 2.5 years. Each took just one toy (plus the iPad of course!) to keep them entertained on the journeys there and back. Other than that, we needed nothing; La Pergola was as well provisioned as home.

There was much more equipment than we were expecting including everything for play, cooking and feeding. This included bibs, kids bowls and plates etc, dressing up, pool toys etc. The kitchen was a 'proper' kitchen- with crockery, cutlery, cooking dishes and saucepans etc that really were right for a party of 7 as we were. It was much more like a house swap than a holiday rental. Very thoughtful provision of information too. When our children were sick, it took us less than 5 seconds to locate the information about the local doctor. All the infomation about the local area was more detailed than normal and showed personality - a cut above the usual. We loved the privacy of La Pergola, having a garden away from the communal pool gave us the best of both worlds. The other two houses have gardens facing on to the communal pool- we preferred having our own space. The garden had shade and sun through the day so everyone could find a spot they were comfortable in. Parked three cars in the drive way too!

The service received at La Pergola exceeded our expectations - the charm of the villa assistants, all the thoughtful touches, the daily clean and the pool maintenance. The property was as described on the web-site, we had an excellent holiday experience and I would certainly recommend.

We took the children's grandparents with us, and they all loved the holiday- none felt they had compromised on their own requirements in order to get a child-friendly place. All are talking about a return! We have booked our next two week stay already.

Happy kids = happy grown-ups

  • 5 of 5

La Pergola and its sister properties are fantastic locations for a relaxing holiday with small children. The attention to detail is amazing - you will have pretty much everything you could have at home - and really conveys the sense that the owners have thought of everything that hard-worked parents need to have an enjoyable holiday. Happy kids = happy grown-ups.

The interior of La Pergola is gorgeous and the house has everything you need. Outside, on one side you have a terrific family pool and on the other, a barbecue and dining area and - best of all - a play zone with outdoor toys and a chalkboard. Everything is as easy and stress-free as a self-catering location in rural France could possibly be.

Nearby, there are beaches, lively seaside towns, adventure parks and a zoo, castles and museums ...

The website itself will tell you the rest. We had a brilliant family holiday.

Fantastic Holiday we were not disappointed!!

  • 5 of 5

Having come last year, we were looking forward to returning. We were not disappointed!! We had a thoroughly good time at La Pergola. The village, amenities, property and sales people were amazing. The children also had a great time and didn't once ask for their own toys they had brought along and found the toys made available in the property to us very enjoyable especially the princess dresses giving us many a night being entertained by them dancing and singing in them! The pool was superb and can honestly say we have found no fault however small to be found on our holiday. The concept you have here is brilliant and will not hesitate to return back for future holidays. I feel that you have catered for everything and cannot make one suggestion that would improve on the 5 star service that you currently offer. We have had an amazing time and looking forward to returning again"

Great all round with small kids!

  • 5 of 5

The house was lovely and the owner had obviouly spent time thinking of the needs of parents with small kids. The outside areas in particular were great! Brill mini play park for kids in garden and blackboard was a hit too!! Outdoor furniture was very high standard and lovely space round BBQ for family dinners! Pool was clean and nice and warm for young kids and wimps. We strolled to the village every morning and really enjoyed the zoo and pirate chateau! All the attractions listed in the handy book in the property were top class. We would go back : ))

Great Location

"I just wanted to say that we had a wonderful holiday. The property was great, as was the weather. Our villa assistants looked after us as much as we needed and we have a great time doing very little !

We did not need to call out the maintenance team and we rated our overall holiday experience as 'excellent'
