About the Owner

To our Guests,

It’s been a pleasure and truly rewarding to see everyone enjoying our home over last three year. We understand how precious this special time is for all the family and of course, Villa holidays are extremely expensive during peak season. Corinne and I continue to strive for quality, cleanliness and comfort and yet still offer competitive pricing. Focusing on the needs of all our guests whatever the age is imperative. The pool, Villa and children’s play area’s are maintained to a high standard.

Thank you so much for choosing our home for your 2016 and 2017 holiday here in the Vendee.

Guestbook comments from the owner

The Villa la Charme turned out to be a real find. We have rented Gites and villas in Brittany and the Vendee over the last five years, but this was the best by far.The house itself was as described on the website. When we arrived we were greeted with a spotless house fully equiped and suitable for a family holiday.The house itself was only part of the deal. A perfectly maintained pool and beautiful gardens. Swings and sandpits for the kids, loungers and chairs for the adults. A barbeque for the essential alfresco dining, sun all day on the terraces/patios.

Aside from the house and pool, the local amenities were brilliant. Beaches and picturesque seaside towns and restaurants abound. The directions and advice given by Jon {our amiable Host) were invaluable.

Our group was made up of kids aged 8 to Grandad aged 85, all of us had a wounderful time. Jon and Corrine were wonderful hosts. Billy Galgey and Family Dublin.

Perfect family holiday villa, lacking nothing.

  • 5 of 5

Jonathan and Corrine demonstrate a real care for, and understanding of, the needs of families staying at their beautiful villa. Nothing is too much trouble for them: their attention to detail is matchles. The enormous garden and lovely swimming pool are perfect and safe play-areas for children and the house offers every amenity. The villa is ideally located for beaches and places of interest. We could not recommend La Charme more highly.

Fabulous house and amazing garden area!

  • 5 of 5

Wow this is such an amazing property! We were a party of 11, with 6 adults and 5 children ranging from 9 months to 6 years. The house is extremely well equipped with great living space and very homely and the outdoor area is just fantastic with a fabulous secure swimming pool and extensive garden. The huge sandpit, swings and general size of open space was a massive hit with the kids and adults alike. There were lots of special touches and Jon and Corinne were so lovely and welcoming. They really tailor to the specific guests and provided lots of toys to keep the 9 month old very occupied. The added provision of things like extra beach towels and bikes for use with kids seat on the back (we ran out of time to use them unfortunately) a step for the younger children in the bathroom were so lovely. We had such a lovely week here and will be recommending this to all our friends. Thank you for making us feel so welcome in your lovely home.

a great holiday, villa perfect with high level of cleanliness. Garden amazing, a home from home!

  • 5 of 5

We were a party of 7, 2 toddlers, mum and dad,Aunty and grandparents. The villa suited our needs perfectly, a very high level of cleanliness and the garden was amazing. For us it was a home from home and everything we needed was in the villa! The pool was a perfect temp. The owners were near by and could not have done more to make our stay a memorable one! I would def recommend a stay here if you are in this part of France!!!

Fabulous gite - highly recommended

  • 5 of 5

This was an ideal gite for our family - 4 children (4 - 13yrs), 6 adults (2 grandparents). The gite is well laid out with two separate 'living areas', so the children could have their own indoor space - not that this was required as the outdoor areas are fabulous. The pool is very secure (one of our prime concerns having young children) and it is maintained daily by the owners. The swings and sandpit area is also a useful space although our children preferred to spend their time in the pool. The kitchen is very well equipped and leads straight onto the patio eating area, with large barbecue. The indoor layout is ideal for mixed family groups, with 2 'living areas', 2 bathrooms, a further toilet and 5 bedrooms (2 with bunk beds).

There is plenty to do in the Vendee area, beautiful beaches, interesting towns and many attractions to visit. Highlights for us were a day out to Puy du Fou,(highly recommended) a visit to the Indian Forest (like 'Go Ape' with crazy water slides and zip wires) and days at the beaches. The younger members of the family enjoyed a visit to the Aquarium at La Rochelle and a Pirate themed Adventure Park. There are also lots of places to enjoy the local seafood.

I must also mention the welcome and friendliness offered by Jonathan and Corrine - this really made the holiday for us. They have got the balance absolutely right of being available if you need advice, an extra pillow, general information about the area, without being intrusive - thank you so much.

Best holiday ever!

  • 5 of 5

If you are looking for a family or group holiday in the popular South Vendee of France, then we recommend that La Charme is the place for you. On the edge of St Denis du Payre, where we found the shop and restaurant most pleasant and accommodating, this spacious villa easily housed our party of ten people.

It occupies a large plot of land where we were able to make full use of the safe, heated outdoor swimming pool, large well-equipped play areas for the children with lots of toys, swings, slides etc, and the spacious patio dining area with large gas barbeque.

Indoors, we found every modern amenity; a well equipped kitchen, lounges with TV, comfortable bedrooms and more than adequate toilet and bathroom facilities. Jonathan and Corrinne were very welcoming and friendly. Nothing was too much trouble for them and, when asked, were always ready to suggest places for our daily excursions to the nearby coastal towns and villages. All in all, we had the most comfortable and relaxing holiday, and one we fully intend to repeat in the near future.

Birthday celebration

  • 5 of 5

We found La Charme a delightful house to stay in with very good facilities for all ages from 10 months to Granny. It was spotless on arrival and any queries were immediately sorted out by the owners. The property is larger than it looks in the photos. In hindsight the only thing we could have done with was a larger cafetiere (which shows how good everything was!). I would recommend this to anyone wanting to stay in the south of the Vendee.
