About the property

Detached Villa Nr. La Tranche sur Mer, Vendee, - Situated In Pretty Village Near La Tranche Sur Mer

Our villa sleeps 6 comfortably and has its own heated private pool set in a pretty secluded garden with a private sunbathing terrace. There is a flower covered pergola to escape the heat of the day and to sit and enjoy your lunch and a games room with pool table and darts and an outside table tennis table when you are tired of the swimming and sunbathing! At night you can enjoy cooking on the stone barbecue as the garden has plenty of outside lighting. The village has a new cafe/bar and shop and a pizza van visits the village every Friday and Saturday evening.

The private heated pool in secluded garden and close to lovely resort of La Tranche and Waterpark, go karting and Indian Forest Adventure Park all 5 minutes away

Guestbook comments from the owner

Hi Julie,

We did indeed have a lovely holiday, it was the first time we have taken the children abroad so was a real adventure and we all had an amazing time.

La Jonchere is a great base and we were lucky that our visit coincided with the annual village fete so were able to join in with the street party and fireworks which was great. The house was lovely, and had everything we needed and the children absolutely loved the pool.

All in all, we had a really lovely time, the weather was kind and we loved La Tranche (much more so than Les Sables D'Olonne) and would love to visit again in the future.

Fabulous holiday

  • 5 of 5

We spent two weeks at La Jonchere at the beginning of the summer holidays and absolutely loved it. So much that after a week we were ready to book again for next year and only because the house is not available for our dates will we have to look elsewhere.

The property was perfect for our needs. The kitchen was well equipped, there was nothing we missed. The pool is lovely and a good size. My boys loved the pool table and we all enjoyed the table tennis.

The village has just had a makeover and looks very pretty. There is a small shop and cafe which opened twice a day (they sell lovely baguettes and croissants for breakfast) and the pizza van came round Fridays and Saturdays.

There are fantastic beaches only a 10min drive away and you can take dogs on the lead where there is no lifeguard presence.

The property itself is doggy-proof and our dog loved it.

We hope to return in the future, we really had a lovely time.

Owner's Response: We are delighted that you had such a fabulous holiday - the new cafe and shop in the village is very convenient as is the pizza van when you don't fancy cooking! I hope you managed to get to the new waterpark as well as the wonderful beaches - it is only a few minutes away and is a great day out for everyone! Thank you for taking the time to write such a lovely review and we hope to see you again in the future

Perfect peaceful family getaway

  • 5 of 5

A real home from home - this was our first time at this property but it certainly won't be our last!

The house has every amenity a family needs, lovely comfortable beds, fully stocked kitchen, great lounge area and a fab large walk in shower which from a practical side means you can actually get small children in and wash/shampoo them easily without having to struggle with small cubicles or doors!

The pool area is wonderful (new pool liner this year) and perfect for all levels of swimmers and non-swimmers, and the fact it can't be directly accessed from the house meant that there was never a worrying moment knowing that the children couldnt get in unsupervised.

The village itself is very peaceful and the little shop (30 seconds from the front door) has all the little essentials including lovely fresh bread & croissants every morning.

We travelled with a 4 & 8 yr old and they loved every minute of their stay.

Would highly recommend this property x

Owner's Response: Thank you for writing this review Clare and we are delighted that you would like to book again for next year! We have tried to make the house a home from home and are always thinking of ways we can make improvements so we are very happy when we have appreciative guests! We love the pool area too and the convenience of the little shop - did you visit the pizza van that comes to the village every Friday and Saturday evening - this is very handy when you have been travelling all day and haven't got anything in for dinner:-]

Great apartment

  • 4 of 5

Really enjoyed our family stay here many thanks to Julie. The apartment is basic but has everything we needed (good cooker, kids cups and bowls, UK TV etc) and the pool was fantastic! There was just two of us with our 2 year old daughter so lots of space to run around in! I would recommend.

Fabulous holiday home

  • 5 of 5

Summer 2014 was our second year running staying at Le Pavilion in La Jonchere and our memories hadn't diappointed us. The house has all the amenities necessary for a very comfortable stay and we were lucky with the weather both years. The pool is secluded and kept at a very pleasant temperature, perfect for a quick dip to cool down or a longer swim to work off all the good food!!

The house only has doors to the front of the property so the pool is accessed by leaving the front and walking round the house to the back. This is no problem as the front garden is secluded and no one can see into it. For safety though we always locked the house when by the pool. The games room is ideal for those days when the weather is not so good or to keep children/teenagers amused.

Easy road travel into La Tranche where there is a lovely beach and plenty of shops and restaurants for all tastes. Les Sables D'Olonne is about 45mins drive away but we'll worth a visit as again it is packed with good shops and restaurants and also has a lovely beach. The harbour is worth a look too.

It's only because we want to explore other areas of France that we are not returning in 2015 but we loved La Tranche and I can see us wanting to return in the future and we would most definitely see if this property was available for renting.

Thank you Julie and family for allowing us to share your French home. Also thanks to your representative, Mandy, who gave us a very warm welcome.

Best Holiday

  • 5 of 5

We have been staying in or near La Tranche for many years but this year decided that we wanted somewhere more homely. We have found the perfect location! Upon arrival we were blown away by the property, clean, comfortable, English TV - not so much for us but 2 teenagers so very handy! The pool was just the icing on the cake - after a couple of overcast days the sun came out and the boys and myself couldn't keep out of the pool!

The house offered everything that you could want - (the photos do not do it justice), and we felt completely at home there, so much so that we have just booked for next year!

Can't recommend it enough!

Fantastic Holiday Home

  • 5 of 5

We recently returned from the best holiday we have ever had in the Vendee. This was due to this lovely home; it was very well equipped, pleasant and comfortable. Also the outside space was superb; the pool is heated and the eating area is shaded and ideally placed in the garden. The house is located in a very pretty village with the beaches very close by and basic shopping across the road. We also found a great bar/restaurant in the next village (St Benoist sur Mer) where we enjoyed a very delicious, traditional four course meal for 15E per head. Overall we would recommend this home and would return in the future.
