A real treat.

5 of 5
Without doubt the best self-catering property we have rented. The layout for our family of 4 was perfect. Everyone had their own bedroom. The open plan living area was massive for us. The chairs and sofa were comfy. The dining table converting into a pool table was a bonus. The huge TV was great as we took a PS4 with us for DVDs, games, Netflix, Amazon video (an Xbox 360 is already there for your use anyway!) The galley kitchen is very well specced out and the utility room was handy too. As the apartment is the whole of the 2nd floor of the building (plus roof space for extra bedrooms), the outside terrace area is huge. The view out to the Atlantic is wonderful and the sound of the sea is ever there, even on calm days when waves are washing up the beach. We stayed off-season and the area was very quiet which we liked. I imagine in the summer it is chaotic as the shoreline appears to be primarily summer houses and apartments. Having said that, the seafront has a very slow speed limit so I'd guess the traffic noise is pretty minimal even in peak season. Thanks to Nicolas and Celine for the excellent communications throughout the holiday process. And also to Perrine for the meet and greet, and explanations of everything despite our mutual language barrier! We'd wholly recommend this as a base for a Vendee holiday. Within a hour's driving radius there is lots to discover.

Peaceful and relaxing

4 of 5
Perfect for relaxing, a base to explore the area - the Vendee is wonderful out of season - so much space and so few tourists. Cottage spacious, perfect for 4-6 people but we were but two. Owners are lovely too, helpful and friendly.
