Family Holiday in 'Luxury Vendee Villa in 'La Callaire-Saint-Hilaire'
We really enjoyed the holiday with our extended family of 16 adults and children in La Callaire-Saint-Hilaire. All the facilities including the swimming pool were provided to a very high standard. Amanda was there to greet us when we arrived and made us very welcome, spending time to explain how everything in the house worked and also make suggestions about shopping and local places to visit which was very helpful.
The patio area with a gas BBQ, large dining table and seating area next to the swimming pool is very comfortable and there is plenty of space in the gardens around the villa for children to play.
We would recommend this property for a large party and hope to be able to return ourselves before too long.
We returned with our family to this lovely Villa for another fantastic week, where the facilities are excellent, and with the pool, croquet, boule and pool table and lots of space the whole family can enjoy the week. With the butcher, bakery and Spar supermarket in walking distance it is the perfect.location for us. Amanda is so helpful and knowledgeable we cannot fault this wonderful week in the Vendee. Eating outside every day as a family, provides that relaxing, bonding time that is essential to people with busy lives. Absolute magic.
A truly luxurious villa - can't wait to go back :)
Just come back from a week's stay at this amazing villa, we didn't want to come home. Everything is catered for, even down to the small things like toiletries in every bathroom. Definitely would recommend the villa and this part of France, so much to do and see.
Thank you for your great review and so glad you all enjoyed your holiday, we look forward to your return :)
A truly luxurious Villa
This is a beautiful Villa, it's fitted out to the highest standard and literally has everything you could possibly need. Its every bit as good if not better than the photograph. We were a party of 7 adults and 6 children under 5 and this was perfect for our stay. The highlight is the heated pool which the children and adults loved. Nothing was too much trouble for the owner who couldnt have been more helpful. We would definitely return.
Thank you for your review. We are so glad the Villa suited all your family requirements, especially for all the young ones. We look forward to welcoming you back
Excellent in every detail
Within easy reach of cross-channel ferries, this Vendee Luxury Villa has all we required for the perfect three generation family holiday. We needed to do no more then take a 10-minute walk to the shops in the village for all our needs but there were easy bike rides to explore the countryside or an hour in the car to find golf courses and fabulous beaches both calm or more exciting for surfing. The house with 7 bedrooms, 7 bathrooms and a saltwater pool, was ideal for teenagers, their parents and their grandparents who enjoyed a private apartment within the house. The stunning beauty of the house and its amenities cannot be fully captured in photographs or words. You have to go there to feel the heavenly sensation of having simply everything you ever desired in a family holiday. Our hosts could not have been more helpful, friendly and full of great ideas. We did not want to leave and we certainly hope to return again.
Thank you for your kind words and we look forward to welcoming you and your family back soon
Lovely house for a truly French experience
I loved my stay at Vendee! The amazing kitchen, the pool, the spacious bedrooms and the beautiful surroundings all come to mind when I think of my stay here. I would 100% stay here again if I were to come to France, everything was perfect. I'd definitely recommend this place to a friend for a relaxing French holiday.
Thank you and so glad you enjoyed your stay. Look forward to your return :)
The Vendée is a province situated in the middle of France’s west coast, 140km of sandy beaches, together with the great summer weather, mainly to the influence of the warming currents from the Gulf Stream, has helped to make the Vendee a popular holiday destination
Vendée is one of the sunniest places in France with nearly 2500 annual sunshine hours.
From its 140km of beaches to the tranquillity of the rolling countryside and Mervent forest, from the wild beauty of the Marais wetlands to the breathtaking spectacle of the shows at Le Grand Parc de Puy du Fou, the Vendée can amuse, relax, stimulate and enchant in equal measure.
