About the property

Detached Villa Nr. La Tranche sur Mer, Vendee, - Situated In Pretty Village Near La Tranche Sur Mer

Our villa sleeps 6 comfortably and has its own heated private pool set in a pretty secluded garden with a private sunbathing terrace. There is a flower covered pergola to escape the heat of the day and to sit and enjoy your lunch and a games room with pool table and darts and an outside table tennis table when you are tired of the swimming and sunbathing! At night you can enjoy cooking on the stone barbecue as the garden has plenty of outside lighting. The village has a new cafe/bar and shop and a pizza van visits the village every Friday and Saturday evening.

The private heated pool in secluded garden and close to lovely resort of La Tranche and Waterpark, go karting and Indian Forest Adventure Park all 5 minutes away

Guestbook comments from the owner

Hi Julie,

We did indeed have a lovely holiday, it was the first time we have taken the children abroad so was a real adventure and we all had an amazing time.

La Jonchere is a great base and we were lucky that our visit coincided with the annual village fete so were able to join in with the street party and fireworks which was great. The house was lovely, and had everything we needed and the children absolutely loved the pool.

All in all, we had a really lovely time, the weather was kind and we loved La Tranche (much more so than Les Sables D'Olonne) and would love to visit again in the future.

Lovely house, perfectly positioned

  • 5 of 5

Six adults were more than comfortable in this lovely home in the Vendee. The house is very well equipped inside and out and we all enjoyed the games provided. Plenty of fans for the hot weather and a lovely pool.

The house is in the heart of the village, shop/cafe/bar 10 meters away. We enjoyed walks in the lovely countryside and to the next village where we hired kayaks on the canals. The supermarket is 5 minutes and beach 10 minutes, water park 5 minutes, so we didn't need to venture far!

Would definitely book again

Lovely and quaint house in rural countryside

  • 4 of 5

We had a lovely stay here, we were 3 adults and our 4 year old. Although the house can sleep 6+, there is only one loo and one bathroom (with shower) so worth keeping that in mind. The house has everything you need, even sky tv which was handy to watch the World Cup games. Pool is a decent size, clean and refreshing. We also bbq’d a few nights. The Cafe/bar is open at certain hours but doesn’t do food. There is a shop right next to the cafe that opens at 9am and has fresh baguettes and pastries but you need to be quick! This is a great spot to explore the area, amazing beaches at La Tranche sur Mer, but our favourite was Plage de Veillon. We also hit the water park O’Gliss one day, literally a 10 mins drive from the house. Mandy looks after the house, she popped in on Sunday to make sure all was ok.

Owner's Response: Thanks for taking the time to write this review Yasmin and we're so pleased you enjoyed your stay. The house is indeed in a great location, as you say only a few minutes from the new Waterpark and also very close to the Indian Forest Adventure Park. We also have the go karting on the outskirts of the village but the village is very quiet and peaceful so we have the best of both worlds! The cafe bar sells coffee and baguettes but not meals unfortunately but there is a pizza van that visits the village on a Friday and Saturday evening, so very convenient if you don't want to cook. We love the beaches at La Tranche but have never been to Plage de Veillon so will seek that out when we are there next!

Fabulous holiday

  • 5 of 5

We spent two weeks at La Jonchere at the beginning of the summer holidays and absolutely loved it. So much that after a week we were ready to book again for next year and only because the house is not available for our dates will we have to look elsewhere.

The property was perfect for our needs. The kitchen was well equipped, there was nothing we missed. The pool is lovely and a good size. My boys loved the pool table and we all enjoyed the table tennis.

The village has just had a makeover and looks very pretty. There is a small shop and cafe which opened twice a day (they sell lovely baguettes and croissants for breakfast) and the pizza van came round Fridays and Saturdays.

There are fantastic beaches only a 10min drive away and you can take dogs on the lead where there is no lifeguard presence.

The property itself is doggy-proof and our dog loved it.

We hope to return in the future, we really had a lovely time.

Owner's Response: We are delighted that you had such a fabulous holiday - the new cafe and shop in the village is very convenient as is the pizza van when you don't fancy cooking! I hope you managed to get to the new waterpark as well as the wonderful beaches - it is only a few minutes away and is a great day out for everyone! Thank you for taking the time to write such a lovely review and we hope to see you again in the future

Perfect peaceful family getaway

  • 5 of 5

A real home from home - this was our first time at this property but it certainly won't be our last!

The house has every amenity a family needs, lovely comfortable beds, fully stocked kitchen, great lounge area and a fab large walk in shower which from a practical side means you can actually get small children in and wash/shampoo them easily without having to struggle with small cubicles or doors!

The pool area is wonderful (new pool liner this year) and perfect for all levels of swimmers and non-swimmers, and the fact it can't be directly accessed from the house meant that there was never a worrying moment knowing that the children couldnt get in unsupervised.

The village itself is very peaceful and the little shop (30 seconds from the front door) has all the little essentials including lovely fresh bread & croissants every morning.

We travelled with a 4 & 8 yr old and they loved every minute of their stay.

Would highly recommend this property x

Owner's Response: Thank you for writing this review Clare and we are delighted that you would like to book again for next year! We have tried to make the house a home from home and are always thinking of ways we can make improvements so we are very happy when we have appreciative guests! We love the pool area too and the convenience of the little shop - did you visit the pizza van that comes to the village every Friday and Saturday evening - this is very handy when you have been travelling all day and haven't got anything in for dinner:-]

Great apartment

  • 4 of 5

Really enjoyed our family stay here many thanks to Julie. The apartment is basic but has everything we needed (good cooker, kids cups and bowls, UK TV etc) and the pool was fantastic! There was just two of us with our 2 year old daughter so lots of space to run around in! I would recommend.

Fabulous holiday home

  • 5 of 5

Summer 2014 was our second year running staying at Le Pavilion in La Jonchere and our memories hadn't diappointed us. The house has all the amenities necessary for a very comfortable stay and we were lucky with the weather both years. The pool is secluded and kept at a very pleasant temperature, perfect for a quick dip to cool down or a longer swim to work off all the good food!!

The house only has doors to the front of the property so the pool is accessed by leaving the front and walking round the house to the back. This is no problem as the front garden is secluded and no one can see into it. For safety though we always locked the house when by the pool. The games room is ideal for those days when the weather is not so good or to keep children/teenagers amused.

Easy road travel into La Tranche where there is a lovely beach and plenty of shops and restaurants for all tastes. Les Sables D'Olonne is about 45mins drive away but we'll worth a visit as again it is packed with good shops and restaurants and also has a lovely beach. The harbour is worth a look too.

It's only because we want to explore other areas of France that we are not returning in 2015 but we loved La Tranche and I can see us wanting to return in the future and we would most definitely see if this property was available for renting.

Thank you Julie and family for allowing us to share your French home. Also thanks to your representative, Mandy, who gave us a very warm welcome.
