Lovely, well equipped house with welcoming owners. Great and easy access to towns and beaches.
The only problem with the property is access from the parking area. The car is parked on deep gravel and access to the house is over a very uneven grassed area and then more gravel. I am disabled using a wheelchair and this would not move through the gravel. Without the owners assistance (which was gladly given) to help me into the house I would still be stuck there.
The parking area needs a hard surface and then a paved path through the grass to the patio area with path continuing through more gravel to the house.
We stayed here for 2 weeks in July with 3 children aged 14, 12 and 9, and had a wonderful holiday! The property is beautiful, stylish and was brand new when we arrived. The kitchen has everything you could possibly need, the bathrooms are luxurious and the house is generally well equipped. The pool is lovely and the children had lots of fun in it. The owner, Claude, covered the pool every night so it is clean and well maintained.
We enjoyed exploring the area. There are beautiful beaches within 15 mins drive (our favourite was at Les Conches). There are several villages/towns close by for supermarkets, boulangeries etc. La Tranche sur Mer is a lovely seaside town for restaurants, ice creams and souvenir shopping. We visited Les Sables D'Olonne, La Rochelle and Ile de Ré - all definitely worth a visit. We went to Puy du Fou - an amazing day out.
Claude and Martine were fantastic hosts. They didn't speak English, but were very patient with our rusty school French and were very friendly. Claude has an amazing vegetable garden and was very generous, giving us fresh haricots vert and courgettes - delicious!!
We wouldn't hesitate to recommend this property for a relaxing holiday in an area with lots to do.
