About Paul Killeen
Paul moved to La Bournais from the UK, and we are enhancing the already great facilities at our Farmhouse & Cottages, which have been run as very popular holiday accommodation for the past 20 years, by Pam and Gary, the previous owners. Paul runs his main business (established 25 years) - Algarve Villa Rentals - from La Bournais, and fully understands what is needed to run a successful rental business I am a keen walker and cyclist, We will be on hand, but not intrusive, to offer advice and information to make your stay with us as enjoyable as possible.
Paul Killeen purchased this Farmhouse in 2012
Why Paul Killeen chose Jugon-les-Lacs
I decided to look for a property in France in 2012 to expand our already successful holiday rental business in Portugal. We knew that we could apply the same principals to a French property as we have done in The Algarve for the past 25 Years. As soon as we saw 'La Bournais' we knew that this was the property we could put our stamp on. The location is perfect; minutes to a thriving village, under an hour from airports & ferry ports and under 30 minutes to the nearest beaches. With the addition of a heated pool in 2013, we feel that we can offer a truly complete French holiday experience.

Ideal for us - warm and comfortable at Christmas
Our family - my wife and I, our 2 daughters, their husbands and 2 grandchildren 9 and 11 spent Christmas at La Bournais. It's a lovely old stone farmhouse, nicely restored and very comfortable, with facilities that worked perfectly for us. A quiet, rural location but within 30 mins walking distance of the small town of Jugon where most essentials are available. The owner Paul, had put up a Christmas tree and other decorations for us and had a roaring fire going in the wood burner! What a welcome! The house is very well equipped with three bathrooms and hand basins in two of the double bedrooms - the master is en suite. We were very comfortable, really enjoyed our 5 days and would definitely come again. Despite the weather, we managed some good walks and a drive through the countryside to the northern beaches - fabulous!
Let lovely place and a Paul the owner was brilliant
Property is lovely large and had everything you'd need
A beautiful cottage in lovely surroundings. Very quiet, great facilities.
A lovely, relaxing holiday. We loved the cottage, and the pool and the games room were great additions. Jugon les Lacs is only a short drive away and we travelled over to the coast almost every day to make the most of the wonderful beaches. Would love to return some day.
5 star property, beautifully maintained
From start to finish our holiday couldn't have been easier or better! We were given brilliant customer service. Our initial email enquiry was answered promptly and within several days our booking was made. The owner was very polite and friendly and the description of his beautiful property was accurate in all respects.The directions to La Bournais were spot on and even though we arrived early at the farmhouse there was no problem in us being allowed in. It was our first meeting with the owner as he was cutting the grass!! His hard work and pride in this property is evident once you visit. For the eight of us, ranging in ages from 61 down to 5 years, the property was perfect and the location was ideal. It was a 'wow' factor entering the farmhouse for the first time - such character, beautifully maintained, spotlessly clean and so well equipped. It definitely exceeded all of our expectations. Everywhere was very comfortable and safe for the children - and adults! This included the brilliant swimming pool and surrounding gardens. We felt very spoilt! The property had lots of maps, books, ideas for days out, restaurants, beaches etc which were all very useful.
I would highly recommend this property to friends and relatives and will definitely be back again.
Thank you Paul for letting us share your stunning farmhouse - it was such a lovley, relaxing holiday - home from home!!
We enjoyed our stay, and the close proximity to a village, with amenities was very handy
Le Bournais was a comfortable and spacious house and well equipped.
We all had a very enjoyable time and the children loved the pool. Paul, the
owner kindly supplied us with two z beds which solved the sleeping
arrangements. We also enjoyed the garden but there was one suggestion
that I would make and that would be purring some tiles or slates out to
and under the outside dining table and also a tiled path to the pool which
would mean that the less tough-footed ones wouldn't need to put shoes on
before going to the garden or pool .
We took it in turns to do the morning croissant walk to Jugon which was fun .
