We stayed here in July/August 2017. We had perfect weather but I think this place would be perfect, no matter what the weather. There are so many items to keep you happy and occupied. Excellent bikes, body boards, table tennis table, floats, indoor games, DVDs, books and every piece of equipment you would want on holiday. Great BBQ
I really appreciate sharp kitchen knives when cooking. Plenty to choose from and a good sharpening stone there too !!!
Situation is excellent. It is as described on the website but we particularly would add the Free ‘Fun Bus’ that runs half hourly during the season. Nearest stop is 3 mins walk away . Takes you to LaTranche or the beach or many other places. We hardly used our car in 2 weeks. Oh ! and the WiFi is excellent.
Our ages ranged from 10 to 71yrs and the layout of the house accommodates this very nicely. There is even a separate sun deck if some in the party get fed up with the others. The pool temperature is perfect. Last time my wife was prepared to swim was in the Aegean Sea, but it was fine for her here.
I think this review sounds as if I am the owner or a relative. I am not. I did a lot of research to find this place and it was worth it.
One point …..if you want culture you will have to travel. This is a relaxing holiday place. The sea/beach nearest the house is lovely. But the pool is so good you will have difficulty getting the family to it.
If you are not BBQing the local (10mins walk) restaurant is good value with excellent fish. Other than that take the Fun Bus (10mins) to La Tranche or cycle. My wife and I had a lovely walk through the woods to La Tranche
I loved it here; from the pool to the hammock, the comfort of the loungers, the roof terrace that shows off the best sunsets, to the relaxed and beautifully designed bedrooms and interiors. But the best bits are all the additional details - the boules set, the bikes that come with a carriage to carry little ones, the kitchen that is better equipped than my one at home, the bbq, the board games, the lilos for the heated pool and all you could ever need for days our at the beach or long bike rides. Then there is the location close to a perfect bakery, beach and woods for adventures, even a trim trail, but close enough to La Trenche to access ice cream, restaurants and boat trips.
Our family party of 10 stayed for two weeks and did not want to go home!!! The property is lovely, large salt water pool, heated, large rooms, various bikes to use whilst you stay and well equipped kitchen. Rounded off with Humax Set Top Box so you can watch your soap of choice!!! Our 4 x 4 year old toddlers loved the pool, and their rooms. Great location and short cycle to bakers every morning for bread and croissants. Beach a short drive or cycle, good local restaurants and good option for kids if the weather takes a turn for the worse. Just over an hour to La Rochelle and worth the trip. Natural History Museum was a big hit and something for kids and adults. We hope to return again very soon. Don't tell too many people about this great rental. Local staff and owner cannot do enough to make your stay perfect.
We've stayed at the villa three times and love it there. The villa is in a fantastic location, 10 minutes walk from a lovely sandy beach and a short walk from the village bakery, restaurant and bar. A large supermarket and market town are also only a short distance. We often use the bikes at the villa to explore the local area, including the pine forests and beaches to the north.
Best of all is the villa itself, which is set up for all your needs. Both the adults and kids in our party enjoy spending hours on the veranda and in the wonderful heated swimming pool. However, there's lots else to do in the Vendee if you're feeling more adventurous, including boating on the Green Venice canal and visiting chateaux. We'll definitely be returning.
The location was great very close to a perfect beach the only problem was the swimming pool with the property was so good nobody wanted to leave it.
There was lots of space to spread out with bedrooms on two levels so nobody was on top of each other.there was a lovely terrace so all our meals were eaten outside which the grandchildren loved .
A wonderful, spacious villa in a fantastic location. A short, pleasant walk (or a very quick pedal on one of the many well-maintained bikes provided) to a range of beaches and the town centre. We were not familiar with La Tranche but found it to provided everything we needed - great food in abundance, a network of good quality cycle paths, beach bars. A really lovely place for a family break.
The house itself is very well equipped and is spacious (we were 2 families with 2 babies and a toddler in tow). The design is well thought-out with shaded dining areas beside the pool for all times of day. The pool was warm (29C). It was very easy to contain the toddler using the in-situ gates. The house was very cool by day and warm by night. Excellent kitchen facilities and barbecue.
Owner very pleasant to deal with. We intend to book again.
Whilst trying to compile this review, I have been unable to think of anything negative regarding our holiday here. Booking procedure, directions, quality of the villa and it's contents along with the service from the owner made this a fantastic break that was above and beyond our expectations. The villa and setting are both beautiful and ideal as a base for relaxation or an exploration of the surrounding area. Our party consisted of adults, teenagers and young children, all of which were catered for at the apartment. The extras such as bikes, beach equipment etc all helped to enhance our enjoyment during our stay. Beach and town are both easily accessible as is the supermarket for anything required. The locals couldn't have been friendlier and we would whole heatedly recommend this vacation to anyone.
