Make a holiday rental home or villa in Western Loire your home away from home

The Western Loire in France is a region of France described by UNESCO as a 'cultural landscape of exceptional beauty'. It is situated on the northwest coast of France, bordered by the Loire Valley, and is made up of 5 departments, Loire-Atlantique, Maine-et-Loire, Mayenne, Sarthe and Vendee. With the arrival of cheap flights to Western Loire from the UK, the lush countryside, vineyards and long sandy beaches have been opened up to British travellers, and the castle dotted along the skyline have once again become bustling centres of activity. A holiday rental, villa or holiday cottage in Western Loire provides the freedom to travel and investigate this part of France at your own pace, and with the flexibility needed to get the most out of a Western Loire holiday.

                                                                                              5 of 5
                                                                                              Best holiday house ever. We loved this house. We are a family with twin boys aged 4 and a 6 year old girl and we loved it. So much space inside and out, the kitchen was well-equipped, the house was spotless and stunning. There were DVDs, jigsaws, games, books, dressing up clothes (for the kids - mostly girls stuff - our boys looked great in fairy dresses). The gardens were huge with lots of passages and secret places to hide away. We used the bbq almost every night, there was a hammock, garden games, chickens, a donkey, rabbits, a dog ... We had to make a real effort to get out to see the sights. And even when we did, we raced home again. Our hosts were wonderful and didn't (seem to) mind the screaming and screeching of our vocal boys and at night, it was SO peaceful. Saw an owl. First time ever. Ok enough... Also, when my husband left his camera behind, it turned up a couple of days later in our next location. Thank you Jen. You were wonderful. We'd love to come back and are already planning a return trip for 2017.

Large luxury Villa with very well thought out sitting and eating areas inside and out. Very well equipt kitchen for the home chef! Gardens fully enclosed keeping little ones safe. The pool is heated as described at a steady 29 degrees making swimming a very pleasant experience. Again the pool is kiddy friendly as it can be closed off with locking patio doors. More than adequate wifi speeds and great it tech available. Fully equipped laundry equipment - washer, dryer. No hidden costs / charges. Please be awear that there is not much here for more independent teenagers or for those looking for a strolling, wine drinking, cafe culture. The only criticism I would have is there is no air con or fans available and the bikes needed puncture repairs before we could use them and really would benefit from some maintenance. These are very minor issues and I would have no problems recommending this venue to friends and family, and we will be looking to book to stay here again. Many thanks to Nicholas for his superb communication and for helping make this a stress free vacation.

The leisure, pool and gym area were great for our family .As the adjoining property was unoccupied for most of our stay we had the place to ourselves, apart from the owner. We had a lovely stay and drove to different places each day . Local restaurants were friendly and accommodating. I would recommend this property for large family groups with children
