We had a wonderful week staying at Lake View and would highly recommend it for families and couples. The description, photos and reviews were a true representation of the house and its surroundings. Not only was the house beautiful, spotlessly clean and spacious but our hosts Marilyn and Barry were perfect hosts. They were so kind and helpful. We arrived hungry to find generous food provisions to keep us going, including fruit and wine. Marilyn and Barry are next door but kept a very low profile unless you needed anything.
A highlight of the week was using the outdoor pizza oven. Barry lights this for you ahead of when you want to start cooking. The pizzas tasted amazing.
The local area is lovely. Lots to see and do. We particularly enjoyed exploring on our bikes.
Thank you so much Marilyn and Barry, for making our week so relaxing and enjoyable. Barry even helped us mend several punctures and gave us his repair kit. It was great meeting you both and hope to return one day.
This lovingly renovated cottage is set in the most beautiful grounds, nestled in woods just a short drive from a lovely little local village.
The location is peaceful, perfect for sitting and drinking in the atmosphere, yet also perfect for famiies with big open spaces for lots of running around and fun!
The hosts, Marilyn and Barry could not be more welcoming and whilst they do live next door in their own property, after welcoming you they are conspicious by their absence, leaving you to enjoy all aspects of their lovely cottage, pool and grounds in complete privacy - yet on hand if needed.
The kitchen and living area of the cottage, all open plan, is warm and inviting, the verander a perfect place to watch the sunset and sunrise.
The master bedroom with ensuite, is large and has an adjoining room perfect for smaller children. The second double bedroom is by comparison to the master, smaller, but still very accomodating. Our girls loved the mezzanine bedroom which felt magical to them.
There are a number of lovely places to visit nearby if you do wish to explore. We made it to Mervent a couple of times for the Zoo and park, and Vouvent lives up to the description of being one of the prettiest villages in France.
Thank you Marilyn and Barry for a lovely holiday we will never forget.
Wow what can I say. We have had a week at Lake view Vendee Cottage it was everything we wanted / needed and more. Such a beautiful picturesque place with all your home comforts. The outdoor bbq and pizza oven is fantastic and a great way of extending your day of being out in the lovely French out doors. straight to the pool to your evening meal. . One of our favourite days out was at Puy Du Fou which is a historical theme park and is only 45 minutes away. This is a must do! Also had the nicest meal Iv ever had at the Chateau Colbert. The vview from the Cottage is breathtaking. Would highly recommend this place to anyone. What a wonderful place.
