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.

Large balcony is superb. The kitchen is well equipped for everything you might need for a short break. Although the apartment was small there was sleeping space for 2 adults and our 2 children. I do think it would be a squeeze for 5 adults though. We enjoyed our stay. Negative points were the arrangements for collecting the keys were not clear despite us emailing (in French) to specifically ask. The advert states towels and bed linen is included. It is not and we had to pay €7 per set of bedding and €7 per towel set. This would be fine ( and was explained to us that it is usual for the region) if it was known beforehand but we were not prepared for this. Please note a refundable deposit of €400 in cash was required on checking in. We were it prepared for this and had to rush to the cash machine.

                                                                                                    5 of 5
                                                                                                    We are a group of 9 - 4 adults and 5 children ranging from 16 to 11 and we stayed mid August for 2 weeks. This is a superb typically French house; creaky floorboards, wooden shutters and huge windows. What you also get is an amazing (heated - properly, not just by the sun) pool, huge garden complete with an eating area for 15 under a pergola, a games room in the pool house, towels for use round the pool, another eating area by the house with a parasol and loads of space inside. Kitchen is quite small but it has everything you could need, loads of plates, cutlery, glasses, cooking utensils etc. All the bedrooms are of a good size with comfortable beds. Loads of bathroom towels are provided too and Madame Begaud collected the used ones and gave us new ones after a week! Totally unexpected but so nice! The bedroom on the mezzanine has 2 double beds. There is very limited headroom and it was very hot in there while we were there. We bought a fan from the local Supermarket and my 11 year old was more than happy up there. Area is fantastic. St Gervais has a superb little bakers, a bar, a pharmacy and a Tabac which all seemed to be open most of the time. 5 minutes up the road is Beauvoir Sur Mer. A slightly bigger town with more shops, a creperie, a market on a Tuesday (I think), a Super U and an Intermarche Super. Noirmoutier is only 20 mins away and is so well worth a visit. Beaches are amazing, water park got a massive thumbs up from the kids and the town is just gorgeous. Even the little aquarium is worth a visit. Challans is 10mins in the other direction from the house and has a lovely town centre with loads of shops, an industrial part with restaurants and a Hyper U. My only tip would be that you would need to be able to speak some French, Madame Begaud speaks very little English. All in all a totally amazing house and place, I never want to go back to the same place but I would here. Thank you Aux Quatre Saisons.
