Jayne and Andrew welcome you to their detached villa on the outskirts of Les Mathes. The villa is perfectly located for your holiday in the Charente Maritime. We are 900m from Les Mathes centre with it's boulangerie, bar, market, and SPAR supermarket and 10 minutes (6km) from the lovely seaside resort of La Palmyre with it's wide variety of bars and shops. Large supermarkets are also just 10 minutes away in Arvert and La Tremblade.
The coast here offers miles and miles of sandy beaches, forest trails and activities for all members of the family. For children of all ages, July and August sees the opening of the seasonal fair 'Luna Park' which is a simple 8 minute drive away.
The large seaside resort of Royan is 11 miles away with La Rochelle airport 48 miles away, just over an hour dependent upon traffic.
The villa rests at the end of our private driveway and is almost hidden from the quiet road - hence the name Villa Cachée which means 'Hidden Villa'. This is our retreat in France and accordingly our guests will find everything they need for a relaxing family holiday - because that's what we want from our holiday home.
We offer 3 bedrooms. One of which is a family room with a double bed and bunk beds, the others are doubles. All the double beds have comfortable pocket sprung mattresses and there is a large wardrobe in each bedroom. The family bedroom also benefits from French windows that lead onto the patio.
