Cottage spacious, perfect for 4-6 people but we were but two. Owners are lovely too, helpful and friendly.

Hot tub went down well with all the family and so did the BB, TV and sound system. Only recommendation - a couple more mirrors would be of benefit - plus I think the additional charges for cleaning needs to be reconsidered. However all in all we were extremely happy with the villa and the owner plus his friend who helped translate for us were extremely helpful and friendly. I would definitely recommend this property and indeed already have done to friends and family. We may well return if we go back to St Jean de Monts.
