Lovely villa in great location and super warm pool

  • 5 of 5

Spacious and clean villa in super secure garden for our grandsons to run about in with plenty of equipment to keep them busy. It is a real plus to have a large heated pool we all spent a lot of time in it. The locals are very friendly and patient as our grandsons tried out their French. Easy walking distance to the local shops and down to the harbour for it's little restaurants. Plenty to do in the area for all ages, we will certainly be returning. We would highly recommend the villa for couples or families.

Wonderful holiday villa

  • 5 of 5

This property actually surpassed the description on the website. It was spacious, well laid out and was a very comfortable space for two families of four. We loved the pool and the large garden and had a really enjoyable holiday there. The villa was just a short walk away from the town centre and its shops so it was very easy to get fresh croissants and bread every morning. The port of Mortagne was very pretty and there were some lovely beaches and places to visit within half an hour's drive of the villa. We would definitely recommend the villa to people of almost any age group but it is particularly well suited for families.

Great relaxing holiday

  • 5 of 5

The 6 of us really enjoyed our stay at Les Lauriers - highlights was the pool, which was a lovely 29 degrees even when cloudy( the kids didn't want to get out! ) the large garden - good for ball games etc and the modern spacious accommodation .Also Mortagne has 2 very good bakers to choose from as well as a good butcher (though I kept going when they were shut) and a well-stocked co-op. The port is also well worth a visit - it has a collection of market stalls (fish, fruit etc) and the pizzeria was great (try a perigordine if you want enough meat to keep you going for a week!). Gigi's was also good.The Villa proved to be a good base to explore the local area -

The zoo at Palmyre(Drive 30 mins) the monastry carved out of the mortagne cliff top, riding an enormous 6 person bike down St George de Didonne seafront. 20 mins drive) and La Rochelle with the aquarium and the museum des automates.

Pool was looked after by a friendly french neighbour who was very good at giving us up to date local weather forecasts and garden also well maintained.

Would highly recommend this villa esp to people with mobility issues.

Great Holiday

  • 5 of 5

We had a wonderful holiday in the villa. So spacious and the heated pool was amazing. I have limited walking ability but I loved the pool, in it most days.

We had different generations on holiday but all enjoyed it.

We love the location as we've been on holiday around there many times and Royan has so many restaurants.

Peaceful and relaxing

  • 4 of 5

The villa is beautiful and well equipped with a huge garden for the kids to kick a ball about. Balls and racquets are available to use as well as floats and goggles/masks for the pool. The way the villa is laid out is brilliant if 2 families are staying.

The villa is set on a quiet road surrounded by vineyards and the town is quiet too. A car is a must to get to supermarkets, bigger towns and the beach.

Convenient walking distance to local Co-op and bakery.

Port area is a bit further with a steep hill. We found the opening times of restaurants to be a bit unpredictable but I think we were there before the 'season' started properly. The new small family run pizzeria in the town is lovely with very welcoming and helpful staff who didint speak English but we had a giggle trying to communicate! They even brought toys out for our baby who was getting a bit niggly.

The kids loved the garden and bunk beds and we would all definitely love to go back at a time when the 'season' is in full swing!
