My family and I have stayed at this beautiful house on two occasions. We absolutely love staying here and will definitely be making further bookings in the future. We have taken our two toddlers to the house and we have found the house to be very child-friendly. They particularly enjoyed playing in the huge garden at the back of property. We found the house to be extremely well maintained and spotless, with all the facilities you require for a comfortable stay. The house is a short drive to nearby beaches and we enjoyed eating out at restaurants close to the house. The owner was very helpful and answered any questions we had about the property very quickly. The owner also has a contact in the village who was very friendly and gave us advice for our stay. I would not hesitate in recommending this property to a friend or family member. We really look forward to our next stay.
Thanks for a brilliant holiday. The house and garden are lovely and full of charm. Everything is exactly as described. We found it very peaceful and relaxing. This was our second year staying there and it wont be our last. We would highly recommend it to anyone looking for a quiet and tranquil time in the French countryside.
La Grande Plage at St-Gilles-Croix-de-Vie, to the south of the town, is the nearest beach. It is only 30 minutes drive. The water is very shallow and is ideal for children and good for surfing.
