About the property

4 bedroom detached house with pool; easy access to town centre and beach

This is a spacious house of character (former échoppe renovated and extended in 2000). It is in a quiet residential area, only 20 minutes pleasant walk to the historic old port of La Rochelle with its excellent restaurants and beautiful views over the harbour. It is also 10 to 15 minutes by bike (25 minutes on foot) to the nearest sandy town beach - Plage de la Concurrence. An enclosed walled and secluded garden of trees and shrubs runs two sides of the house facing south and west. There is a small swimming pool to the front of the house, which for small children can be gated off from the lawn and terrace. The terrace has a barbecue and a large garden table with 8 matching chairs; it also has an awning to allow guests to enjoy shade or sunshine. There are climbing roses and numerous colourful shrubs.

Inside, the living accommodation downstairs is mostly open plan. There is a bright and spacious living room with three sofas (one is a sofa bed), and a television. Through an archway you reach a dining area and beyond a kitchen with breakfast bar, fridge/freezer, hob, small oven and a dishwasher. The property has two large double bedrooms downstairs each with a double bed, and two more upstairs, one with a double bed, the other with a double bed and a single bed. There are two bathrooms, one downstairs with bath and separate shower; the second upstairs with shower. There is an attached garage with washing machine and second fridge/freezer.

Well-behaved pets are welcome and there is a cat flap, but please check with the owners before bringing an animal to the property.

Bed linen is available for hire for 10 euros/bed. We also ask for a €50 euro cleaning fee.

The pool is usually open from mid May to early September time (weather dependant) so please check in advance.

About Lisa Pechey

This was our family home for several years until 2012. We loved living in La Rochelle, and return to Villa Dany each year whenever it is empty! La Rochelle is a beautiful town with a fantastic lifestyle.

Lisa Pechey purchased this house in 2008

Why Lisa Pechey chose La Rochelle

It's a big house with a small pool, extremely conveniently located within easy walking distance of the town centre.

With its garden on two sides of the house there is always shade to be found, but also plenty of space for full sun. It also has a secluded 'English' garden with lots of mature shrubs and plants.

What makes this house unique

As we have a big family, this is a superb house for us because of its enormous living room which can comfortably fit a lot of people. With its 2000 extension, it is a tasteful blend of old and modern; a very cheerful house with a friendly, relaxed feel.

Perfect holiday property in a quiet location

  • 5 of 5

I can only reinforce the complimentary reviews already posted for this delightful house. It is spacious yet well set-out, with pool, bbq, patio, wifi, etc. Everything about it says 'welcome', with good on-site support from Denise. The customer service was above and beyond. The house is in a quiet quarter within easy reach of the beautiful town and lively port and I can only highly recommend it whether you be a family, with children of any age, or group of friends looking for comfortable accommodation. Loved it.

grande maison familiale

  • 4 of 5

Nous avons passé un très bon séjour. La maison est dans un quartier calme. Boulangerie à 5 min à pied, supermarché à 10min à pied, centre ville à 20min à pied en passant par un grand parc.

La maison est grande avec 1 salle de bain et une salle d'eau. La piscine nous a semblée bien située sur le devant de la maison et au soleil. La mise à disposition de vélo serait un plus, et également penser à changer les literies (trop moles) et les canapés.

Mais honnêtement c'est une très bonne adresse et je la conseille vivement !

Zentral gelegenes Ferienhaus in La Rochelle

  • 5 of 5

Wir haben die Ferien in diesem zentral in La Rochelle gelegenen Ferienhaus sehr genossen. W-lan im ganzen Haus und einen kleinen Pool haben das Bild abgerundet. Die Einrichtung war zweckmässig, die Doppelbetten mit 140cm Breite etwas klein für 2 Erwachsene.

Car: recommended

Easily accessible from La Rochelle airport (10 minutes by car or taxi) and only a few minutes drive from La Rochelle's ring road, yet very quiet and peaceful. By bicycle, 15 minutes to the Old Port, 45 minutes (mostly on cycle paths)to the Ile de Ré; 20 minutes walk to the central bus station. There is no problem finding parking places in the street.

Less than 20 minutes walk to the town centre with its arcaded streets, indoor market and museums. Only 5 minutes cycle ride to the indoor swimming baths and the park, which extends all the way to the beach. Well behaved pets are welcome.
