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.
We were met on arrival by Msr. Marquis and his son with a warm and welcoming greeting and the moment we went into the cottage we knew we had found a winner. It is a lovely cottage, full of character, clean and tidy, and fully equipped with everything you could need (oven, microwave, coffee maker, bed linen, towels, dishwasher, BBQ, tv, stereo etc). The beds were comfortable and the shower was excellent and all this with the bonus of a little garden (with fruit and veg. to hand) in which to relax after a hard day on the beach and enjoy a glass of wine. A short walk away to the boulangerie and a small store or to countless places to have a meal. The ferry across the harbour costs a modest 1 euro and takes you the expanse of the beach and more eating places as well as a shopping area. We have no hesitation in giving this cottage a 5 star rating......it is the best property we have ever stayed in and we are hoping that we will be able to return in the not too distant future. It is difficult to imagine how anybody could stay in this cottage and not be satisfied.
