Guestbook comments from the owner

Excellent very well appointed villa - all you could wish for on a family holiday. Owners were very friendly and helpful. The location was perfect - quiet, peaceful and within walking distance of the local village shops and restaurant.

The facilities at the villa e.g. pool area and games room were ideal. Our granddaughter spent the entire holiday in the pool or playing croquet on the lawn.

The area is ideal for walking and cycling which, as a family, we all enjoy. We all look forward to returning again.

A fantastic home away from home

  • 5 of 5

Amanda and her family have built a wonderful villa, that is extremely well appointed. The quality of the property, its furnishing and fittings are all of a very high standard, but it's all the little touches that helped make our holiday so relaxing, easy and very comfortable. Our party was 4 adults and 4 children of varying ages, and there was always something available to keep us entertained. The location of the villa also makes it a great base, to explore everything the region has to offer. I have no hesitation in recommending!

Perfect holiday villa!

  • 5 of 5

Luxury Vendee Villa certainly lived up to expectations. If anything there was more of a wow factor on entering than I had imagined from looking at the photos. It is a very comfortable home from home set in beautiful countryside. Our large family took over the whole villa using all seven bedrooms but we never felt cramped as the living area, both inside and out, is very generous and well kitted out to cater for all your needs.

We enjoyed several BBQs making use of the local shops and supermarkets and a special dinner one evening when a chef came in to cook for us which we organised through the owner Amanda. Amanda and her husband were staying close by and available if we needed anything but fortunately they had thought of everything and we were extremely content during our stay in their immaculate villa.

The gardens were very well kept by Amanda's husband Shane, as was the glorious salt water swimming pool. The large garden made for lots of outdoor fun during our week with croquet and boules, not forgetting the purpose built Games Room housing a pool table. We also enjoyed morning yoga sessions with Amanda who is a qualified yoga teacher.

On our first night it was very convenient being able to walk to the restaurant L'Assiette Gourmande in the local village where we enjoyed a lovely meal.

I would not hesitate to recommend this wonderful holiday villa and hope I am fortunate enough to return one day.

A fantastic family holiday

  • 5 of 5

Our family stayed at the villa for a week in July 2017 to celebrate my father in law’s 80th birthday. In all, we were a party of 14 and the villa accommodated us perfectly. It was modern, immaculately clean and very well furnished and there were plenty of cups, plates, glasses, cutlery etc. to go around. It was an inspired idea to have two dishwashers as it meant we could keep up with the constant eating and drinking. The local town is a short walk away and there you will find a friendly, well stocked butcher, a traditional baker and a well-stocked modern Spar. At the villa, we were in and out the pool all day and there were many games of Boule and Croquet going on as well as card games for all the family. The pool table and the barbeque got well used and the whole family had an unforgettable week’s holiday. The owners of the villa, Amanda and Shane where discreetly on hand in case of problems (there were none) and Amanda arranged for a first-class private chef to come in on one evening to cook a delicious meal for us all. On another occasion, she organised a visit to a local restaurant in the village where we had a lovely meal. For me however, the most memorable part of the holiday was the poolside yoga lessons that Amanda came and led us through every morning. This was such a great start to each day and even the youngsters got out of their beds for 9 am each day to take part. She was a great teacher and adapted her lessons to include complete beginners as well as those with more experience.

We took long walks through the quiet country roads admiring the fields full of sunflowers and played tennis at the local sports facility. This was a million miles away from home in the south east of England and the M25 and I can’t wait to return

Luxury Vendee Villa lived up to it's description

  • 5 of 5

The Villa matched it's description, and was a superb location for our extended family holiday (all adults). Accommodation superb, and the facilities of Games Room, Salt water pool, Boule, Croquet and bar billiards kept all 14 of us fully occupied for the whole week, and we could all dine together, inside or outside. A walk into the local village gave Baker, Butcher and well stocked Spar grocer. A great success, and the owner Amanda was always available for help, advice and support. Highly recommended.

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.
