The owner was keen to make sure we had a great holiday with many useful suggestions for the local area. The property is in a quiet area of a friendly neighbourhood with lovely walks to be had down to the dunes and the long Vendee beaches and the enclosed garden was perfect for our dog and children to feel safe and secure with a wonderful sun terrace for us to relax on. The house is spacious and clean with many amenities provided - I would say that it has been kitted out on a budget but everything you need is provided.

Steve and Judy's house is in a beautiful location, less than five minutes away from a stunning beach that goes on for miles. It was spotless and immaculately furnished providing everything you may need - even an outdoor barbecue! The delightful square has a number of wonderful restaurants, as well as an excellent ice cream shop that serves every flavour of ice cream you can imagine - the perfect treat after a long day on the beach! There is also a delightful local bar with very friendly and helpful locals. The cycle path all the way along the coast really made our holiday complete after we hired a tandem at the local bike shop. Steve and Judy have even put a bicycle rack in the garden to store bikes overnight which made things very easy after returning from a long ride! Thank you both for all your help in organising a truly fantastic holiday - it really was the best vacance yet! We will be back again next year and are already looking forward to it... Tom Bruce
