We had such a lovely stay in Vouille les Marais Could you please let Veronica know that she has a real treasure in Jean Claude and his family. There was a problem with the kitchen drain while we were there, and Jean Claude was vigilant about sorting it out without causing any disturbance to us at all. I only hope the problem was sorted for the next visitors. The house and pool were a dream for us and the village is just so lovely. Even the grumpy Boulanger managed a smile! I would highly recommend this property for a quiet family holiday.

We had a great holiday at the above property we all absolutely loved the villa! So much so we are thinking of going back next year

The village of Vouillé les Marais has a little café-bar, a small but amazingly well stocked shop (they always seem to have exactly what we need) and a boulangerie - all just a couple of minutes walk away. There's also a tiny museum which is worth poking your nose into and a lovely craft shop. There's a jam maker's workshop too.

The next-but-one village, Le Gué, has a shop and a bar where you can take your drinks over to the picnic tables by the river. It's really lovely down there and we actually prefer it to our local in Vouillé.


It is only 31 kilometres to the beautiful West Coast beaches of L'Aiguillon sur Mer, Les Conches, La Tranche sur Mer, La Rochelle and Ile De Re etc Vendee beaches are blue flag beaches, very clean and safe. Some resorts are very quiet with a short stroll through pine forests leading to the beaches, some busier resorts with restaurants, bars, choice of watersports etc

Further Details:

Vouillé les Marais is located in the marais poitevin, one of the most beautiful and least known corners of France.

A peaceful rural setting yet within easy reach of all amenities and attractions.
