Great base for exploring, and loads of places to visit and discover. The proximity of seaside villages/towns means you're spoilt for choice for beaches and entertainment. Nearby Chateaux, interesting churches, and available activities are not in short supply. All in all, something for everyone. A good selection of restaurants are within a fairly short drive. I found parking in the small drive easy ! Remember to turn right out of the drive when setting off - the One Way sign on the main road isn't very clear. Local walks, and the river nearby, and at Apremont, are fascinating, especially if you like nature, wildlife, and/or photography. There are plenty of fishing opportunities too. A very enjoyable holiday, with help from the owners if needed. Tomtom was more than useful..... A wealth of information about specific eateries etc, is available in the house, with some very helpful observations from previous holidaymakers. The property was very clean, and customer service A1.

                                                                                                      We are a group of 9 - 4 adults and 5 children ranging from 16 to 11 and we stayed mid August for 2 weeks. This is a superb typically French house; creaky floorboards, wooden shutters and huge windows. What you also get is an amazing (heated - properly, not just by the sun) pool, huge garden complete with an eating area for 15 under a pergola, a games room in the pool house, towels for use round the pool, another eating area by the house with a parasol and loads of space inside. Kitchen is quite small but it has everything you could need, loads of plates, cutlery, glasses, cooking utensils etc. All the bedrooms are of a good size with comfortable beds. Loads of bathroom towels are provided too and Madame Begaud collected the used ones and gave us new ones after a week! Totally unexpected but so nice! The bedroom on the mezzanine has 2 double beds. There is very limited headroom and it was very hot in there while we were there. We bought a fan from the local Supermarket and my 11 year old was more than happy up there. Area is fantastic. St Gervais has a superb little bakers, a bar, a pharmacy and a Tabac which all seemed to be open most of the time. 5 minutes up the road is Beauvoir Sur Mer. A slightly bigger town with more shops, a creperie, a market on a Tuesday (I think), a Super U and an Intermarche Super. Noirmoutier is only 20 mins away and is so well worth a visit. Beaches are amazing, water park got a massive thumbs up from the kids and the town is just gorgeous. Even the little aquarium is worth a visit. Challans is 10mins in the other direction from the house and has a lovely town centre with loads of shops, an industrial part with restaurants and a Hyper U. My only tip would be that you would need to be able to speak some French, Madame Begaud speaks very little English. All in all a totally amazing house and place, I never want to go back to the same place but I would here. Thank you Aux Quatre Saisons.
