Overview

About the property

3 bed villa with own pool - 1 en-suite, double vanity bathroom with shower, 2 toilets, 3 large lounge leather settees, large dining table, tv

Villa with its own pool and secure garden; situated on a very well maintained gated development, which is adjacent to a pine forest with tracks/paths for those on foot, cycling or horse riding. The town of St Jean de Monts is close by for all amenities, such as, bank, bakery, chemist and small boutique shops, along with a large outdoor market (held on a Wednesday and Saturday) and a wonderful indoor market held every day for sea food, meats and bread and wonderful patisseries. There are further supermarkets within five minutes’ drive of the villa. The town has ample restaurants to suit both the fine diner and the family having an inexpensive meal. The local beaches are un-spoilt and only ten minutes’ drive away. The main beach of Saint Jean de Monts hosts a range of activities including sand sailing, wind surfing and there is a new indoor swimming pool.

Having your own heated pool for a family holiday is wonderful luxury. Our pool has both a safety cover and alarm, with steps rather than a ladder; perfect for young and old.

We spend many days around the pool and in the evening we often BBQ on our purpose brick built BBQ and finish the day by sitting around on rattan seating enjoying warm summer evenings.

The patio has a elegant round table with Lazy Susie and 6 cushioned seats. There is a second small bistro patio area outside French doors from one of the bedrooms. Lovely for a morning cuppa. Sun umbrellas available and an assortment of pool toys.

The following can be supplied please request a price:

Meet and Greet

Linen supplied

We offer a daily cleaning service

Continental Breakfast

Baby sitting service

Air port taxi

Please contact us if you have any further requests.

About Pauline Hitchcock

We have enjoyed holidays in Saint Jean de Monts for many years and being by the coast is a bonus !!

Our villa is five minutes drive from the town of Saint Jean de Monts but is in a quiet and perfect spot for relaxing. From the complex you can access the pine forest for walks. We also love exploring the nearby towns of Challans and taking the coast road to St Gille Croix de Vie which is a stunning estuary town.

We regularly visit Nante (a mini Paris) and Pornic. We also take the bridge to the island of Ile de Noirmoutier although you can travel by way of "le Gois", a 3 mile long uneven cobble paved causeway, which is covered twice a day by up to 4m of water. The highest point on the island is at the Château de Noirmoutier from which you can get a panoramic view of the island.

Why Pauline Hitchcock chose Les-Sables-d'Olonne area

It is a very safe gated development and having your own heated pool for a family holiday is wonderful luxury. Our pool has both a safety cover and alarm, with steps rather than a ladder; perfect for young and old.

We spend many days around the pool and in the evening we often BBQ on our purpose brick built bbq and finish the day by sitting around on rattan seating enjoying warm summer evenings.

The patio has a elegant round table with Lazy Susie and 6 cushioned seats. There is a small bistro patio area outside French doors of one of the bedrooms. Lovely for a morning cuppa. Sun umbrellas available and an assortment of pool toys.

What makes this villa unique

The villa is on one level which is ideal for young and old. We have furnished with low maintenance whilst on holiday in mind. The villa has an amazing lounge/diner giving a lovely feeling of space. There are TWO toilets off the main corridor. Door ramp available for wheelchair use.

The lounge area has three leather settees and wall mounted TV.

With tiled floor throughout which keeps the villa cool in summer (floor standing fans available). However, the villa does have central heating for out of season holidays.

A very well equipped gite.

  • 5 of 5

The property is in a delightful gated community and very well equipped. We enjoyed St-Jean-De-Monts very much with its vast expanse of golden beach and would definitely think of re-booking for the future. Mrs Hitchcock was very helpful on the occasions we contacted her. The living/dining room is vast and gave the three of us plenty of room to curl up on the 3 exceedingly comfortable sofas. One each was a luxury.

A very pleasant week

  • 5 of 5

We spent a wonderful week at Villa Annie and were blessed with lovely weather. The villa was a home from home, spacious, well equipped and comfortable. The outside area afforded seating for sun and shade and was large enough to let our dogs stretch their legs. The swimming pool was absolutely gorgeous, so warm that there was no hesitation when entering and the cover kept in the heat well. We were impressed with the area and were spoilt with the choice of restaurants. We also found a lovely beach to let the dogs have a run. We did not really need to leave the villa but did take the opportunity to explore the coast north and south of the villa and had a couple of lovely days out. All our communications with the owner were very efficient and we have no hesitation in recommending the villa.

Beautiful Relaxing Villa

  • 5 of 5

We stayed at Villa Annie in July/August 2014. It was a beautiful, clean and well maintained and well equipped villa. The location was central yet quiet and peaceful and perfectly located for sight seeing, eating out or simply relaxing by the pool and having BBQs.

The markets in the town are well worth a visit and the forests at the back of the villa are perfect for long easy walks, a run or a bike ride.

The communication with the villa owner (Pauline) was excellent both before and during our stay, as was the service, with everything we requested delivered for our arrival as well as detailed interactions for access to the villa.

We had a wonderful time and I throughly recommend a stay at Villa Annie.

Villa Annie

  • 5 of 5

We spent a lovely week in Villa Annie in June. This is without doubt the best self catering property we've ever stayed in. The villa was spacious, clean and well equipped and the pool and garden were perfect with plenty of seating in both sun and shade. As the weather was so hot, we got plenty of use out of the pool! The villa is all on one level which makes it very easy to get around for elderly people and young children. There's lots to do in the area for all age groups and we are hoping to return!
