Well we've just finished our stay here in La Vendee with friends from the Netherlands and Bordeaux. 10 out of 10. Wow what a stunning setting and what a welcoming town to visit. Everyone was friendly and everything is thriving.
The beach is fine golden sand and the sea is perfect for paddling and swimming. We've already booked again for next summer.
There's lots for families to do here (if you can drag them away from the beach) we visited the Indian Forest and the new aqua park plus the zip line adventure was unbelievable.
This was a very early seasonal holiday for us as we wanted to travel before the schools broke up - and we had really hot sunny weather.
As everyone has said this house is literally on a stunning sandy beach. We were 8-up (3 couples, a 19 year old and a 17 year old) and what's really nice is that every one of the beds is a proper real bed in a separate bedroom - no futons or sofa bed nonsense!
On arrival we were greeted with a spotlessly clean house, the power and hot water were already switched on and 2 bottles of wine and a cappuccino machine all ready and waiting for us. This is a really nice way to set the scene for a lovely week!
Everything you'd hope to find is here and everything is new. There was even the extra things like dishwasher powder, a BBQ with charcoal, j-cloths, tea towels and bin bags all provided.
This is comfortably the best presented house we've ever hired with clean and delightfully uncluttered decor. It's quite big with an open-plan arrangement which is perfect for our needs. The Kitchen, living room and dining room are in the middle of the house with big patio doors directly out onto the patio - and then the bedrooms and bathrooms are all around this central area.
Having three shower rooms is a big bonus when there's lots of you in one group.
The owners are very helpful and emailed us straight back when we needed the address for a local vet and again with the opening times for the supermarket on Sundays. They emailed us a set of instructions two weeks before we travelled and there's free wifi and netflix as well as the brilliant cinema and a decent library of books and games.
The local town is a gem - there's everything here from high end restaurants to beach bars and a surf school.This is also a great villa if you like things like romantic walks and beach-combing. You can walk right along the beach into the centre of town for dinner and the sunset is breathtaking.
5/5 doesn't really do it justice.Superb holiday house, thank you!
This is our first holiday here and the villa is amazing. You can't tell from the photo but it's right on the beach. If I won the lottery this is the type of house I'd buy and retire tomorrow. We swam in the sea every day.
Everything is new and the house comes with all the bedding, towels and bed linen which made packing for our trip easy. It also has plenty for children to do with a sand pit, dolls house, toys and games.
The big screen home cinema was excellent in the early evenings before we went out for dinner and early in the morning if e children woke early.
The patio area is perfect as it's private and has sunny areas and shady areas, so if you get too hot on the beach it's ideal.
We will definitely come back here again. 10/10
We had a wonderful time. Our party of 9 had plenty of room. All of the double bedrooms were a good size with two on suite. The two bunk bed rooms were fine too and one was happily shared by two teenagers whilst an adult stayed in the other. All the beds were very comfortable and we all slept well. The villa is in a quiet street literally 4 minutes walk to the beech but is still close to the local village. There are plenty of local shops which catered well for our needs with a large Super U supermarket 10 minutes away. The kitchen was okay for catering for 9 people with an oven and microwave. Only one little suggestion would be the addition of an extra shelf in the oven to enable more food to be cooked at once. The two on suite bathrooms and the main bathroom were a reasonable size and we never ran out of hot water despite several showers each day. All bedding and towels were provided including beach towels. We had a fabulous time. The owner is brilliant and provides lots of useful information and support. Thank you.
A modern, and recently refurbished, one level house in the most perfect position. The standard of design and decoration is first class and gives the house a feeling of luxury. It has a central, open plan kitchen diner and lounge, without all five bedrooms leading off from there. The kitchen is well equipped and makes catering very easy, you remain part of the party whilst doing so due to the open plan design. The en-suites and bathroom were all really good, and the bonus of having three showers between us meant that there was never a queue. It was great to have sheets and all towels, including beach towels, included in the rental. The property was spotless when we arrived, you leave it clean and tidy and the cleaner does the rest, she did a fantastic job. Outside, the patio is huge and there is a sandpit within it that my granddaughter particularly enjoyed. Add onto all of this the fact that the beach is only a minute away means that you don't have to go round looking for things to do. If you know the area La Griere is a ten minute walk away with La Tranche a further fifteen after that. The owner was very helpful throughout, replying to messages really quickly and providing detailed information about the property before our arrival. He was particularly helpful on our arrival day, liaising with the cleaner to allow us access to the property as soon as possible, he could not have done more to help. We were a family group of seven adults and one toddler and had the most wonderful holiday. Will we be going again? You bet!
I didn't book the appartment but I was one of the 6 guests who stayed there. I enjoyed the stay so much I thought I would also leave a revue for you.
Excelent location, we walked the short distance to the beautiful beach with the dogs every evening. Incredible long garden with mature pine trees, really quiet and peaceful. The appartment is lovely and clean, excelent cleaner appeared mid week changed all beds and towels, left the place perfect. All facilities needed are in perfect working order, dishwasher was fantastic, lovely comfy beds, clean modern bathrooms with excelent showers and loads of hot water. Highly recommend this rental. Hope to visit with my family in the future. Thank you for a lovely holiday
The location was fabulous,literally only a couple of yards around the side to a huge gorgeous beach. The outside of the property had a huge patio complete with BBQ for your alfresco dining. A lovely garden with loads of trees. There is a nice selection of shop/restaurants within a short walk on level ground. Also, a local veterinarian if you bring your dog on holiday with you. The property was exactly as it is described. It is a really peaceful location and you can hear the waves from the patio The linen and towels were crisp white and all immaculately clean. The property also has an amazing movie system Everything you need for a lovely holiday is catered for in the property. The owners were so helpful and professional which resulted in easy secure booking and payment. We have and will continue to recommended this property and will return on our next trip to France
