About the property

Romantic Chambre d'hotes just 15 mins from the sea. Come and be pampered!

Heated pool and 3 course dinners. Pure relaxation! Welcome to our unique fisherman's style cottage. Whitewashed and with blue shutters it is a rare example of the traditional coastal architecture set in a stunning peaceful location. All you can hear is birdsong and the gentle sway of the trees in the adjacent copse. Walk out the gates and straight into miles of wwf protected landscape. Herons and swans frequent the waters. If you fancy resting we have just installed a heated pool to soak up the sunny long days or pop in your car to La Tranche (15 mins) and enjoy mussels and frites overlooking the sea. Our rooms have been totally renovated with stylish bathrooms and are decorated in French style. One with a maritime air and the other traditional romantic French style. Wine tours, massage and beauty treatments and bike hire. We hope to see you soon!

About Mr et Madame Darlavoix

Anglo/French we love sharing our passion for France, and the Vendée in particular. Jacqueline is a Vendee Property Finder so staying with us is ideal if you are searching for a home in the area.

Franglaise is how our friends describe us with us switching between languages mid sentence!

We have 2 dogs, Caramel (the greedy spaniel) and Hortense (the rather posh standard poodle, well she thinks she is ).

Mr et Madame Darlavoix purchased this apartment in 2014

Why Mr et Madame Darlavoix chose Vendee

We bought our property in December 2013 and soon set to work booking renovations. We have renovated 2 super bedrooms, each with brand new luxury bathrooms.

Tranquillity surrounds the property which is located in a beautiful village full of golden stone houses. The location sold the house to us and we thought it would be ideal to share the peace and quiet with people who are seeking a stay to recharge or enjoy the fabulous nature.

What makes this apartment unique

Wonderful natural setting with the marais and a small river just by the garden. The house has a heated pool available for guests use and a sunny south facing garden full of flowers.

Bike hire, scenic flights and beauty treatments all available. Arrive, relax and recharge!

We aim to ensure our guests leave feeling pampered and wanting to return.Many have remained good friends.

Another Fantastic Holiday

  • 5 of 5

This was our second visit with our two teenage boys. We had such a warm welcome, it was like visiting old friends. It is a convenient location to the beaches and seaside towns and good walking across the marshes.

As with out last visit Gill cooked for us every evening, food was as amazing as ever and nice to not have to worry about driving to make the most of the local wine.

Sure we will be back again

A hidden gem! So peaceful and quiet and yet so close to so many great things to see and do.

  • 5 of 5

Very tranquil location and great French breakfasts. The children loved the swimming pool and the friendly spaniel and poodle. From the property we saw: red squirrels, egrets, herons, owls and bats so a great spot for nature lovers. Car hire recommended as most day trips are a drive away. There is a huge new water park nearby and a park full of action and adventure (Indian forest) which is brilliant for slightly older children/ teenagers. In addition there is a large range of beautiful, clean beaches within 30-40 minutes drive. Parking is free and you never struggle for a parking space.

What a gem

  • 5 of 5

What a find, having been camping for the start of our holiday we arrived at this beautiful B&B in Curzon.

We were greeted by Gill & Jaquiline who made us feel welcome & at home, great hosts who wanted us to enjoy our stay with our friends in the two beautifully newly furnished rooms.

The two rooms share a lovely pool & garden area where you can relax after a day's site seeing around Curzon & the coastal attractions.

A car is recommended due to the location which is quite but equally peaceful & full of natural settings & wildlife.

Breakfast is served outside under a converted shelter overlooking the pool with lots of local produce & strong coffee which sets you up for the day, evening meal is a optional extra & defiantly worth savouring along with the local wines.

Both Gill & Jaquline go out of their way to make sure that you have a wonderful stay & certainly would be a venue which we would return & recommend to friends & family.

Good luck for the future.

Steve & Elaine.

Best Family Holiday Ever!!

  • 5 of 5

The website looked great and when we arrived, it was even lovelier. Two luxury rooms with great bathrooms, fluffy towels and wifi access. We came with two teenagers so they had their own space which they appreciated. The pool was warm and inviting and we swam every day. The property borders the Marais marshes so we had great walks, saw storks, egrets, water voles, woodpeckers, owls and heard the frogs. The breakfast was fantastic with fresh selection of different croissants, bread and toast every day with a selection of freshly made jams. A nice pot of tea for mum too! And then evening dinner... We were truly spoilt, Gil's cooking was a delight. Started with drinks and nibbles, three courses and a bottle of wine, experiencing food from the area and an explanation of everything we ate. We liked it so much we had dinner every night. The table was laid beautifully and changing in theme regularly. Jacqueline & Gil were delightful hosts and nothing was too much trouble and great advice about where to visit. We were 15-20 minutes to the beach and there were a good variety from calm to surfing. Being with two teenagers they were happy mixing swimming with watching films and playing games on their handheld devices, we didn't have an I'm bored once so happy parents too. We made the Caen Ferry in 3.5 hours on the motorway. On our way home we voted it our best ever family holiday.
