THE TERRACE and THE GARDEN IN MORE DETAILS
The terrace goes from bedroom 1 to the living room. The dining room also overlooks the terrace.
It is South facing for lazy afternoon naps in comfortable steamer chairs.
It has a real sail to protect you from the sun when sharing your breakfast or your lunch.
It is totally protected against the wind as it is in L shape.
The garden has been designed by a landscape architect: simple but full of flowers all year round and beautiful trees.
I would say that this garden would not allow for crazy football matches although there is space enough! But you would be advised to have more calm children games!
It is totally hidden from the neighbours and the bicycle path to ensure you 100% privacy.
There is an outside shower next to the laundry lines for you to take away all that sand from your fun beach and sea activities before getting back in the house.
The shower is also hidden from other people eyes!

We fell in love with the island a few years ago. With our 4 children (aged between 3 and 9 years old), it is the ideal holiday destination. We like especially the mildness of its climate, the odors of flowers and trees, the brightness/luminosity, the sort of micro-climate which makes that when it does rain in Nantes it is not necessarily the case on the island and if it is raining in the morning it is so ofent the case that we have a beautiful afternoon. We find life very easy on the island. The bakery is nearby, we do once a week a big supermarket (with home delivery) and then we go every other day to the market, we live on our bicycles, go horse back riding, play tennis, enjoy some beach activities, have barbecues, and admire the sunset on the sea front. Be it in summer or winter, the nature is so beautiful and the house so comfortable that we enjoy this island all year round.
Gaetane purchased this House in 2015
Why Gaetane chose Île d'Yeu
The first advantage is the location: location on Ile d Yeu is key! You dont want to cycle miles to get your bread or your milk, nor to get to nice beaches, nor to get your children to the poney club, the tennis courts or the sailing club! So here it is: we are on a path which is known as the 'dream location' on the island: mid-way between Port-Joinville and its vibrant (night)life in the high season and Saint Sauveur, the adorable village with its famous bakery and its beautiful church. No noise and at the same time close to shops, beaches, activities. A second advantage is that neighbours and tourists do not see us! We are hidden by thick hedges and far away from neighbours. Another advantage is the comfort of the house: in the old tradition of the island houses with white walls and blue shutters and at the same time with all the comfort of modern days. We could make that house our main house. There is no humidity whatsoever as we maintain the house throughout the year. The garden is also a real added value to the house: full of trees and flowers all year round, it is the best setting for your lazy summer lunches under the sail, for your naps in the sun, for your afternoon garden games (although no football as it would damage the trees and flowers), for your evening aperos. Besides, the house has everything you need for children. It is babe and children friendly. And it is adapted for wheelchairs. We think it is the ideal house for one or two families with kids, or for grandparents with grand-children.

Belle maison spacieuse à 5 mn des plages avec grand jardin et belle cuisine
Nous avons passé une semaine merveilleuse dans une maison typique, aménagée avec beaucoup de goût. Elle est lumineuse et est entourée d'un beau jardin.
Située à 5 mn des plages, elle est aussi très proche de Port-Joinville où nous avons fait toutes nos courses - env 10 mn en vélo.
Nos 2 ados ont beaucoup apprécié les 2 chambres doubles.
L'environnement est très calme. Le jardin est isolé de la vue des voisins.
Nous recommandons vivement cette maison, hyper bien situee - au calme - a l abri des regards comme explique sur le site!
Proprietaire charmante et disponible pour toute question.
Maison super bien equipee pour deux familles ou une grande famille.
Nous avons passe un tres agreable w-e, a faire de belles balades hivernales et a recevoir, au coin du feu de cheminee, nos amis sejournant egalement sur l ile.
Merci pr tout!
The island of Yeu concentrates in just 23 km2 a diversity of landscapes : long sandy beaches and dunes held with the help of coniferous woods ; a wild coast with its proud cliffs, embracing golden sandy coves ; barren moors where sea thrifts shiver under the wind ; sunken roads crossing anticlinal valleys or skirting cliffs ; marsh and “bocage” countryside and its numerous parcels where houses with low tiled roofs and colourful shutters are snuggled behind the foliage of willows and sloe trees. Known for a long time as the 1st tuna fishing port of the Atlantic coast, the island has still a very active fishing sector. From the piers are discharged many fish : sea bass, monk fish, hake, sole, turbot, sea bream and others, not forgetting different kinds of shellfish. The island of Yeu stays a highly welcoming and alive island, strongly caught by this sea fever which impress all, and sea lovers, when stopping over, even if just for a day. On this island, our house is a charming and very comfortable holiday house super well located between Port Joinville and Saint Sauveur, meaning that you never have to cycle miles to get bread, big groceries, fresh fish, or to go to the markets, the kids and adults sports activities, nightlife etc.
