Excellent cottage. Nicely decorated, spacious, practical, comfortable. The cottage has everything you could need and we could happily have stayed much longer.
Our young girls loved playing in the large garden and it was nice to sit back on the veranda and watch the sunset in the evening, the place has lovely views and is great for bird watching. The children's toys were a hit too.
Local shops and bakery are about 10 minutes cycle. Several beautiful beaches nearby and lots of good places to visit though you need a bike or car.
The attached 1 bed annex would be good if you are travelling with another couple. No one was there when we were though so it was quite private.
Would definitely recommend this place.
Really good sized property, comfortable lounge and diner with large tv. Bonus of UK channels, Bedrooms well proportioned and plenty of games for children.The property was well maintained with new looking shutters on the exterior.
Large bathroom with shower, although the toilet is located seperately.
Would recommend to others and will book again.
We have really enjoyed our stay in this comfortable well-equipped house. The large windwos are a real asset – watching kites, hoopoes, kestrel, black redstarts….and the ever changing evening skies. Being able to cycle straight from the house is a bonus. This area has such a diverse range of landscapes to explore within a few miles of the house. We certainly hope to return!
We stayed at Les Lavandes in June/July 2011.The property is well appointed,well laid out and immaculately clean.Comfy beds and sofas in the lounge.Well equipped down to the last detail.
Really well placed for the beaches and lots of history for the culture vultures.The area is a favorite of ours.We have visited many,many times.So many local, good restaurants.Especially the 3 ducks at Arvert.(5 mins away).The house has a big lawned area ideal for barbeques and the odd game of football for the children.
We would definitely stay again.Good value for money.
Situated in peaceful countryside location by sunflower fields and vineyards between the villages of Etaules and Les Mathes. Les Lavandes is a five minute drive from the resort of La Palmyre (marina, beaches, and zoo) or you can cycle from the gîte on tracks through the marshes and forest to the stunning, unspoilt sandy beaches of the Atlantic coast backed by dunes, forests & dedicated cycle/footpaths. Excellent local shops, markets & restaurants. Seafood is a great speciality here. It's a wonderful place just to completely relax, explore, or take advantage of the many activities offered locally including cycling, walking, horse riding, water sports, quad biking or climbing through the trees and flying along zip wires in the Indian Forest.
