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.
