About Louise

We love the Vendee and have enjoyed many happy family holidays there over the years. In 2008 we decided to buy our own holiday home and as soon as we saw the Moulin De Guinche we fell in love with it and purchased it straight away. Since then we have had the house refurbished to an extremely high standard and decided to then rent the Moulin out to help pay towards the costs which given the huge size of the place coupled with over 2 acres of grounds and the lake are not insignificant... Our children love going over there and we have introduced options such as the cycling package and fishing package for our guests. We do not think there is a finer holiday Villa in the Vendee and get the same feedback for our guests. We pay attention to every detail to make sure your holiday is perfect!

Louise purchased this villa in 2008

Why Louise chose Fontenay-le-Comte area

The area is perfect and local micro climate makes the southern Vendee one of the sunniest areas with an average of 2,600hrs of sunshine per year (London has just 1,490). The Moulin De Guinche is situated in a hamlet called Ligne; it is peaceful but not isolated and is very near the village of St Valerien which has a small bar/shop which is just a 2 minute drive from the house and in the summer months the bar holds special BBQ nights. More shops and restaurants are just 10 minutes away and the location is perfect for visiting the west coast beaches (1 hour) and La Rochelle etc. The amazing Puy Du Fou is just 45 mins away.

What makes this villa unique

The Moulin is probably unique in the Vendee and certainly within the local area. Its of a modern Villa design with the kitchen and lounge upstairs for superior summer living. It also has a huge indoor heated pool rather than an outdoor one so in the unlikely event of poor weather you can still enjoy the pool! The private lake with its own population of well fed ducks is also wonderful. The large 2 acres of gardens are great for kids to explore and it overlooks open countryside. Cycling and fishing packages are also available for our guests.

Guestbook comments from the owner

I felt that I had to let you know what a wonderful holiday we had. A week wasn`t long enough. The house was perfect; how envious we are of you all. Do all visitors want to move to France after a holiday there? After holidaying in the Vendee (6 times now) we always come home wanting to move out there.



We found the location to be ideal for touring up and down the coast and spending one day sightseeing/beach – having the next day fishing and lounging around the pool.



Not enough can be said about your house - it made us feel instantly welcome and the quality of the fixtures etc fell way above our expectations. It really is a credit to how French Holiday homes should be done. The little things like the balcony, overlooking the garden and having the confidence for the big people to sit in the kitchen and keep an eye on the little people in the garden - made all the difference.



A home from home holiday and we very much appreciated the attention to detail.

Simply The Best !!

  • 5 of 5

As a family of 7 we stayed at Moulin De Guinche for a wonderful week. It is a beautiful , well kept villa in a lovely location. It is very well equipped inside and out. In the garden areas which are stunning there is table tennis, pool, giant chess and darts as well as shelves full of other games, badminton, boules etc, and of course the fabulous heated swimming pool, which we used every day! Lots of sitting out areas to enjoy the evening BBQ and glass of local produce. You can wander down to its own small lake to feed the fish and family of friendly ducks. inside the villa is a whole cupboard full of board games to suit all ages as well as a library of dvds, a wii, a playstation, there is no excuse for having nothing to do here ! Penny and Tim, are the perfect property managers. Nothing was to much trouble and they were lovely people to have a chat with. Add to all this a wonderful little boulangerie at St Hermine, 10 mins away, and what more could you want!

Special interest holidays:

Cycling and fishing packages are now available for our guests. If you want to explore the quiet country lanes and tracks in the surrounding area and to enjoy the delightful scenery at a leisurely pace or go fishing for the large carp in the private lake in the grounds of Moulin De Guinche then cycles and fishing equipment are available.

There are 10 mountain bikes to choose from; 6 for adults and 4 for children. The cycling package provides enjoyment for the entire family and is great for a gentle bike ride across the open countryside. Why not plan upon a family expedition to the local lakes for a lunchtime picnic! The lack of any heavy traffic and use of farm tracks allows for great peace and safety.

At the request of guests who have wanted to enjoy the fishing but have not had the space in the car to bring fishing equipment on holiday we now provide 5 sets of fishing rods within the fishing package.

See our website for further details.

Coast/Beach:

The Vendee is famous for its beaches and the coast and many beaches are well within a 60 minute drive from the house. Just one of these, La Tranche sur mer, has over 13km of sandy beaches and is a popular family resort and is a paradise for surfers and wind surfers.

Distances:

Fontenay le Comte is a larger town and is only a 20 minute drive away. Fontenay has several historic buildings, many shops and restaurants, and a nice street market. 2 minute drive to St Valerien.

Further Details:

The Moulin De Guinche is situated in a hamlet called Ligne; it is peaceful but not isolated and is very near the village of St Valerien which has a small bar/shop (Tabac) which is just a 2 minute drive from the house. A number of locals/ex-pats are around most evenings and in the summer months the bar holds special BBQ nights with live music that are very popular and are recommended. Fresh bread, croissants and baguettes are delivered to the shop every morning and there is always a reasonable selection of groceries, fruit and local vegetables for sale as well. The shop and bar opens 6 days a week (closed on Wednesdays and Sunday afternoons).
