“Maeva L'Estran Chateau d'Olonne perfect for families!”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed June 3, 2009

I stayed at the Maeva L'Estran for 4 nights May 2009 with my husband and 2 young children and had a wonderful stay! The staff are very welcoming and the whole residence (just 4 years old) is clean and comfortable and safe, with fencing around the 2 swimming pools and open areas for children to play. The residence is right by the beach although it is recommended you walk 10 mins along the coast for better rockpooling! There's an 8 - 8 store just 3 mins walk up the road and a number of restauarants within walking distance (along the coast road) also. I would highly recommend May/Whitweek as a great time to travel for UK families, as the area is not busy at this time (French holidays start in June and from this time on it is very busy). My young children particularly enjoyed the Parc des Dunes in Brem sur Mer, just 15 mins drive from Chateau d'Olonne. Perfect for under 14's and again, nice and quiet in May! We also had a lovely day out in Coulon, in the beautiful 'Venise Vert' area near Niort. There is so much to do in this area. especially for kids, Velorail, treetop adventure courses, cheese, honey and oyster farm visits, zoos, water and theme parks...so much you definitely need at least a week's stay!
