About the property

Villa in La Baffardiere, Nr. Le Champs St Pere, Vendee, France - Tranquil Location, 20 Minutes To Some Of The Best Beaches On Atlantic Coast

Built in a traditional Vendeene style, Les Peupliers is situated in the unspoilt hamlet of La Baffardiere, which forms part of a protected area of outstanding natural beauty, within the River Yon Nature Reserve. The property sits in a quiet lane with no through traffic, from where there are many walks and cycle rides through wooded lanes and paths down to the River yon. The pretty village of Le Champs St Pere is only a short drive or bike ride away, where you will find a supermarket with petrol station, pharmacy, bakery, bar and restaurant and a market in the village square in Thursday mornings. 20 minutes to the North of Le Champs St Pere is the thriving university town of La Roche Sur Yon, and equidistant to the South is the historic, cathedral town of Lucon. The beautiful city of La Rochelle and exclusive Ile de Re are under 1 hour away.

About J Perry

We are an English family with 3 children.

Why J Perry chose Le Champ-Saint-Père

We chose to buy a holiday home in this area because we love the combination of peaceful, unspoiled countryside alongside miles of beautiful uncrowded beaches. It's the perfect place to relax, but we also like being able to dip into the more 'touristy' areas when the fancy takes us! The villa is where we spend most of our holiday time and so is furnished and equipped to a very high standard.

Guestbook comments from the owner

We got back last night and wanted to tell you what a fantastic holiday we had. You've decorated and furnished the villa so beautifully, it's the nicest place we've ever stayed, so much so we would love to go again next year. We've never booked a holiday the day we got back before, but we all loved it so much. - S.Thompson, Herts

Fabulous hospitality offered us in respect of the villa. Everything we could have wanted was available and we felt very much at home. The location was amazing as it covered rural, sea, and city. A perfect spot. - Elaine and Dave Wilkinson, Buckingham.

Quite simply perfect in every way. - A&S Beckett, Wigan.

We had a fantastic week at this beautiful holiday home. It is so welcoming and feels like home - I really could live here. Only down side is that the house is so nice we hardly left! Had fantastic days at the beach and the sun shone every day- beautiful. Would love to come back here very soon. - Thornton Family, Huddersfield.

Great villa

  • 4 of 5

We had a lovely stay. The villa is great both inside and out. We had a lovely time in the pool and also relaxing in the house when the evenings drew in. We also loved the towns and countryside in the area.

Superb villa in quiet location

  • 5 of 5

The villa is as described in the information but exceeded our expectations. It is located in a small hamlet and is quiet and secluded. The villa itself is of a high standard and is clean. The pool area is particularly impressive and you can sunbathe at any time of the day. It is handy to have a small supermarket and bakery a short drive away in the next village. It is well placed to visit major towns and attractions including La Rochelle which has to be our favourite! Natalie, the property manager, was very helpful. In all a great place to stay - we would recommend.

Beautiful comfortable villa in a peaceful setting

  • 5 of 5

The villa was very tasteful and comfortable. We had good weather so spent a few days lying by the lovely pool and barbecuing in the peaceful garden. There are some great beaches nearby, so ventured to these as well. The village has a reasonably sized Carrefour which was useful, and we ate out a few times. The pizzeria in Maureil sur Lay has a pleasant atmosphere and has Chateau Marie Du Fou (a lovely local rosé). All in all a lovely relaxing week. Would recommend.

Owner's Response: Thanks very much for your review James - really glad you enjoyed your stay at Les Peupliers. Many of the restaurants and bars in the small towns and villages in France tend to open at lunch times and weekends only - so different to the UK, but very much the french way!

Beautiful Villa with a brilliant pool

  • 5 of 5

A beautiful spacious 3 bedroom villa with a fantastic pool area with plenty of loungers with an outside dining area. The villa is located in a small & quiet village with very friendly neighbours. The property was well maintained and the property manager Natalie, did an excellent job as it was very clean and the beds were made up on arrival. The welcome basket was a lovely touch after a long journey. I would recommend staying here and wouldn't hesitate to book again. Many thanks

Couldn't recommend Les Peupliers more highly!

  • 5 of 5

We had a glorious week at Les Peupliers, and would highly recommend it to anyone. From the initial email contact with the lovely, helpful owner Julie, to the thoughtfully and comfortably furnished property, everything was perfect. The property is in a lovely unspoilt hamlet with pleasant walks nearby and is only a 5-10 minute drive from a bigger village with a bakery and large supermarket. There is loads to see in the area - we loved the beaches, and had a wonderful day trip to La Rochelle and the Ile de Re. The villa has everything you could want and is very clean and well presented. The best part was the glorious pool which we struggled to drag ourselves away from each day (helped by the glorious weather we enjoyed). Thank you Julie (and local, English speaking housekeeper, Natalie). We hope to be back!

In this area we are spoiled for choice when it comes to beaches. Our nearest beach is Longeville, which is approximately 20 minutes drive from the villa, is great for water sports and very safe for young children. Beautiful, unspoilt beaches also at Bourgenay, La Tranche-sur-mer, Les Sables and many others. Our favourite is 'La Terrier', which is part of the stretch at La Tranche and has a fantastic surfing beach, great beach bars, water sports and is never too crowded.


Both the airports at La Rochelle (45 minutes) and Nantes (1 hour), are well serviced with flights from the UK, namely by the budget airlines Ryanair and Flybe. The house can be reached by motorway in under 3 hours from St Malo (4 hours Caen), into which Brittany Ferries have frequent sailings from Portsmouth and others We can offer guests traveling with Brittany Ferries a discount. Please contact us for further information and advice about traveling to the Vendee.

Further Details:

Sailing, fishing, canoeing, horse riding and go-carting are all available locally and a Zip Wire Adventure Park is situated in the nearby Indian Forest. Also, the new O'Gliss Water Park, the 3rd biggest in France, is only 15 minutes drive away, situated next to the Indian Forest.

It is only a short walk from the villa down to the River Yon which also provides great fishing and cycling, with picnic areas and the local wine trail clearly signposted.
