Perfect family holiday !!

  • 5 of 5

What a fantstic holiday. The villa was everything we had hoped for. we were a party of 2 grandparents, 2 Adults and 3 lively grandchildren. The accomodation was spacious and well laid out. Outside was a real treat with a large garden, mobile BBQ so we could move it to the perfect spot (some much needed shade) and the pool was perfect. We made use of the pool from 9.30am and the Grandchildren were still in there at 10.00pm. We had 7 days of glorious sunshine and as soon as we arrived back in England we made a booking for 2017.

Highly recommend

  • 5 of 5

This is our second visit to the Villa as we made a late booking last year as well which is a good indication of how we feel about it. It’s very spacious, lovely grounds with space to relax into and swimming pool. Internally the decor is done to a high standard and it is clean and tidy with nice touches which add to the customer experience. The owners responded quickly to any questions we had and have been very honest and reliable in our dealings with them. We have a young family and liked the location – quiet small village away from the hustle and bustle meaning dividing our time between pool days, beach days (really good beaches for young children about 1 hour away) and local towns so worked very well for us. Highly recommend it.

Lovely stay in the Vendee

  • 4 of 5

We had a great week in the villa. The property was clean and well maintained. The garden is huge and enabled us to play so many games with the kids. The pool was great too and lovely that it was so close to the house, meaning that we could keep on easy eye on the kids if we needed to.

The garden is private, with a high fence and hedge around most of it. It does border the village school, but when we were there the school was closed for the holidays so that wasn't a problem for us.

There's lots to do in the area. You have to drive to most of it, but it's not too far to things. La Rochelle worth a visit and the Mervent Forest and Marais Poitevan also nice for cycling around. The later has some very well marked out cycle rides that take you through some lovely villages.

I've given the Villa a 4 star rating as it would have been great to have air con in the bedrooms at night. Also would have been good to be able to put the bikes in the garage. However, that said, we had a great time. The place is lovely.

An amazing villa

  • 5 of 5

This property was just perfect for us. We were two families of five sharing and we found that we had enough space to have a fantastic two week holiday here. It was clean and tidy and extremely well equipped. The pool was just perfect and the children lived in this for the whole two weeks of our stay.

The house is situated in an area which enable us to have some really good days out. Supermarkets are only a short drive away. We drove from Calais and if memory serves me right I think it took us four hours. Very easy and pleasant drive down.

I would definitely come back to this property for another holiday sometime. Thank you for a great holiday.

From the Owner

The property is a new build. We love this area because of the climate and also the variety of activities it offers. Cycling, walking and day trips to the beaches.

The nearest village La Caillere 2.5km away has a well stocked Spar, a boulangerie, a boucherie, a tabac, pharmacy a restaurant and hairdressers. Larger supermarkets are situated 10 minutes drive away at La Chataigneraie and most nearby towns have weekly markets selling fresh local produce. There is a wonderful seafood market at Fontenay le Comte. (20mins drive away).

Further Details:

Sample two lovely local restaurants – The Donjon at Bazoge en Pareds & The Pic vert in Vouvant. Under an hour’s drive to the wonderful Vendee beaches and close by to Mervent for canoeing, walking, cycling, fishing and adventure sports, Puy de Fou (France's premier historical theme park) and the tranquil canals of Marais Poitevin (Venise Verte). The lovely Mervant and Vouvant area is within ten minutes drive.

The Mervant forest is a haven for walkers and nature lovers and interesting features, many hidden away.

A man made beach with cafe and picnic tables offers the chance to lake swim in beautiful surroundings.

The Puy du Fou - In the north of the Vendee (just 45 mins away) this theme park for young or old is based on the history of the area, displaying events through live re-enactments of the highest quality; this is absolutely fabulous and many guests visit more than once. Don’t miss this!

La Rochelle-A beautiful and historic city just 60 mins away. The port is busy with yachts and from here you can go to the quay which has excellent restaurants. The 17th century town centre has extensive shopping facilities and the aquarium is the largest in Europe and has thousands of species from all over the world.

Wine - The local wines of the Vendee are well worth testing; there are a number of vineyards locally that offer tasting and direct sale.

The region enjoys a Mediterranean climate with long hot sunny days from May to September.

There are many attractions to explore: Chateux, churches, forests, boating, horse riding, bicycling and several weekly markets. There really is something for all the family, and if you do not fancy driving just relax by the pool with a glass of local wine.

Famous attraction parks, like Le puy du fou, le Futuroscope are close to here.
