Well worth a visit

  • 5 out of 5
This is a fine modern house with excellent equipment. We found the house to be clean and well prepared and the heated swimming pool clean and ready for use too - which was great. There were 11 of us, 4 very young children. The house is in a quiet location, an easy cycle ride to the beach but a longer walk - shops are a little distant and the local supermarket is almost unusable after 9am - packed to the hilt, although with good quality produce. The little town of Tranche-sur-mer is pleasant and has decent shops. This is an ideal situation for those with a desire to cycle or walk - the beaches are superb if you like to surf or body board, less good for the serious swimmer. Serious cyclists might want to bring their own bikes - there are bikes available but they are really only for casual use.

Communications with the owner were excellent and we'd certainly recommend the house. There is not a lot of historical interest locally, but La Rochelle, about an hour away, is full of museums and attractions.

Owner's Response: Hi, thanks for the great review. One thing to note for readers, the local supermarket is packed in August when the French are on holiday as large percentage of French owned holiday homes in the area, the rest of the year is like any other supermarket. Ann

A great property for a seaside hoiliday

  • 5 out of 5
We stayed with extended family and the house was great for everyone including two babies. It was well equipped and very clean. The pool was a great bonus and very safe with secure fencing. The pool area is more secluded than the picture shows with mature hedging.
Good, quiet location with easy walk or cycle to beach and local bakery in the village.
All communications with owner were excellent and we received good directions and instructions.
Overall exceeded our expectations, we had a great week.

Brilliant place. We all had an amazing time!

  • 5 out of 5
My friends and I stayed here at the end of September. I imagine that it is a great place for families, like many other reviewers have said. However, we are a group of 8 guys and girls all 26-29 yr olds. Don't get me wrong La Tranche is certainly no Malia (yuk)! But it is a brilliant place to chill out, relax and enjoy the surf.

We are all keen surfers and have stayed at a few different rentals all along the Bay of Biscay. Le Pavot was definitely the best. The rooms are all of a good size, the garage is fully equipped with bikes, there is a heated swimming pool, table tennis and an outdoor BBQ!

We all have own surf gear, although it is worth noting that there are loads of places to hire from (one of which you will get a discount from if you talk to the owner of Le Pavot) as long as you arrive in peak season.

The DVD and book collections are one of the biggest I have seen, and there are loads of EU to UK plug bars dotted around the house.

La Terriere is a pretty small village, with only really a boulangerie and a small bar. The foremost of which is definitely worth cycling down to in the morning. There is also quite a large super market about 5 minutes drive away, along with town of La Trance Sur Mer. Which has loads of restaurants, plus all of the usual tourist amenities like English speaking Office de Tourisme, shops, crazy golf, etc.

The booking was simple. All questions were answered within 24 hrs. Most in under an hour.

In the past we have always wanted to try different places to stay in France. However, I think Le Pavot may well be the first place that we revisit. Couldn't recommend it highly enough.

Owner's Response: Hi,
thanks for the great review, good to get surfers feedback as almost all our bookings are young families. We do the surfing as well with our family and really love it.

Excellent Villa in excellent location

  • 5 out of 5
We have just spent a fabulous holiday at Le Pavot. The villa sleeps 10 comfortably - we were two families with 6 children (ranging from 3 years – 13 years) between us and the villa catered for everyone's needs and more importantly, there was plenty of room for everyone!

The house is very well equipped and has a beautiful heated swimming pool and bikes for everyone. It also has a great book & DVD library which our children loved.

The house was lovely and clean when we arrived and the owner couldn't have been more helpful.

Le Pavot is located in a quieter area of La Tranche Sur Mer and it is very safe location for the children to explore in. The pool and the garden are fenced off and our children loved playing table tennis.

Everything you could ever need is within a walk or a cycle away. The beach and forest were a huge hit once we managed to persuade the children away from the pool. La Tranche Sur Mer is a lovely location with plenty of restaurants and shops catering for everyone.

Perfect house in a perfect location and would highly recommend to families of all ages.

Excellent villa and location..perfect for families

  • 5 out of 5
We spent a week at Le Pavot with 2 young children (5 & 8) . It was perfect for all our needs, with a beautiful heated swimming pool and bikes..also a great book & DVD library!

Tranche sur Mer was a perfect base for many activities including local park, beaches, hiking trail and forest to explore. The zoo at Sable D'Olonne was a hit, as well as nearby Ile de Re & La Rochelle. There is also an activity park nearby- The Indian Forest - with zip wiring throught the tree tops, horse riding and lots of activities to keep the kids entertained.

The kids enjoyed the short cycle to the local bakery every morning for an array of freshly baked goods. The local Super U was excellent for everything else.

The villa would suit 2 -3 families as there is so much space, but as a family of 4 we could spread out!

Would highly recommend to families of all ages.

Terrific holiday

  • 5 out of 5
This was our first visit to LaPavot and hopefully it will not be our last. Directions to villa were good and straightforward. Booking was easy and any queries were answered immediately.

There were 7 family adults in our party and no children - all rooms fitted out with everything that you would need in fact it was home from home. Everything was clean and in good working order. Short walk to beach, short walk to get bread each day and only a short drive to supermarket.

Unable to think of a negative.

The Charente and Vendée regions are blessed with microclimate ensuring high probability of hot sunny days during the summer. With nearly 100 miles of sandy beaches backed by pine forests and easy access from the southern channel ports, it is a popular destination for British and French holidaymakers seeking a sun, sea and sand holiday. However there is much more to this area than beaches including fortified cities, islands, wetlands and vineyards. It is worth travelling inland from the coast to see rural France at its best as well as some highly rated theme parks such as Puy du Fou and Futuroscope.

Fabulous sandy beaches, unspoilt countryside, historical cities and fine food and wine are just some of the attractions that this part of France can offer. The Vendee is situated in the east coast of France and features mile upon mile of golden sandy beaches that slope into the clear blue sea. It is the perfect place for water-sports or relaxing in the sun with its wonderful climate.
