About Nicholas Daubney
We are both busy business people who fell in love with France some years ago. After many touring holidays and a couple of disappointing holiday lets we decided to buy in Vouvant,having stayed there with friends. We immediately knew we had made a great choice. It is just lovely.We can truly relax..we have found great places to eat and beautiful and interesting places to see. There are always friendly people in the local bars and bistros..French and English. We walk, cycle around or drive to visit the nearby cities,like Nantes, Poitiers, La Rochelle.Of course we like the chic shops and sights ,but they are just packed with historical interest too. Some days we fancy the beach and the coast is great with both quiet and buzzing resorts depending on your mood. It is simply perfect for us.
Nicholas Daubney purchased this Apartment in 2006
Why Nicholas Daubney chose Vouvant
Love the area and village. Rear of property overlooks village and front looks out over hilly countryside. Peaceful and very pleasant, without feeling remote from activity. It is good to have the options of different airports. Also we like to drive so the distance from England is very do-able!
What makes this Apartment unique
To look out to country views but still step out to walk to the boulangerie has to be a major plus. To enjoy a decent size pool without hoardes of people. To enjoy a game of boule on our private pitch. The beauty of a character property but with all modern facilities.
100% refund if canceled at least 14 days before arrival date. 50% refund if canceled at least 7 days before arrival date.

Loved our stay, a well equipped beautiful apartment. A short walk to the village, lovely grounds, private parking and friendly residents.
Great little apartment for a get away in Vendée
We spent a lovely week in this very confortable, well appointed and very nicely decorated apartment. Nick and his wife made sure to provide everything their guests could need to enjoy exploring the Vendée area by day and come back every night to this welcoming home for the week. Thoroughly recommend it.
