About the property

3 Bedroom, 2 shower rooms, heated private pool

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.

The accommodation also has 2 fully equipped modern shower rooms.

The large 28m2 open plan living area incorporates a fully equipped kitchen (oven, hob, washing machine, dishwasher, fridge / freezer, microwave) dining area with table and 8 chairs, and sitting area with 2 huge 4-seater sofas.

We have a 43" LCD TV with satellite receiver (All non-premium UK channels). In addition we have attached a gizmo that lets you play over 500 classic video games including Sonic the Hedgehog and Super Mario. The TV also has a soundbar attached for that big movie sound and also offers Bluetooth connection to your mobile phones so you can play your own music.

The villa also benefits from free WIFI (Router located in living area).

We have electric fans for each room and electric heating plus wood burner for those visiting the villa during the cooler months.

Outside we have parking for 3 cars, a patio area for alfresco dining and a large sun terrace leading to the swimming pool. The private pool is heated and is available from 1st of May to the end of September. It has a level floor approx. 1100mm deep making it ideal for playing games.

Bed linen and towels can be provided at an additional cost, if provided these can be kept by the guest at the end of their stay. They are supplied new for each guest.

Post stay cleaning is available at an extra cost, if not wanted our guests are responsible for the cleaning of the villa - cleaning materials will be supplied.

The villa is priced to be comparable with mobile home rental in the area.

The minimum rental period during peak periods is a week, off peak we can be more flexible.

Why The Owner chose Les Mathes

For 20 years we have been travelling to La Palmyre with our now all grown up family. We used to stay in mobile homes and then gites and always wanted a place of our own. So 2015 we started our search and after many months of searching this villa was found. It was tucked away at the end of a long drive and only had one bedroom but it was location, location, location - so we took the plunge.

From February 2016 to July we extended and renovated and of course added the pool.

We had our first guests late August 2016.

Comfy country home.

Sweet house really well set up for Brits, all the comforts of home. Would have preferred better quality sheets and towels but understand issues of laundering. Celine and Thiery and Andrew all very responsive and helpful. Thank you

Owner's Response: Hello Angela Thank you for your lovely review, we are pleased that you found our villa comfortable and that our representatives Thiery and Celine were helpful. We really appreciate the feedback about the towels and linen. As you acknowledged laundry costs in France are very expensive hence we supply towels etc. brand new for those guests that opt for them. They can also be kept by our guests after their stay if they wish. We try and keep these costs as low as possible but I think we may consider offering two types of towels packages - standard and deluxe. The deluxe towels being Egyptian cotton. Once again thank you for your review and helpful comments and we are glad you enjoyed your stay.

Lovely peaceful and private villa

  • 4 of 5

We enjoyed a great 2 weeks at the Villa Cachee at the end of July. We love this area of France, normally staying in a mobile home but this time we were looking for extra space and privacy still close enough to all the attractions we enjoy. We are pleased to say that this villa gave us everything we hoped for; private pool big enough for plenty of fun, sunny private decking area, comfortable beds, hot showers, modern kitchen, room to relax on the sofas and a great base to access all the area has to offer.

We took our bikes and found it easy to connect to all the wonderful cycle routes in the area and it was great cycling to the bakers in town with the kids most mornings. The most beautiful beaches are only a short distance away in the car, we particularly like the Cote Sauvage.

The owner's representative is a very friendly and welcoming man who speaks good English. He came once a week to clean the pool and check we were all OK, but made it clear he was only a phone call away if needed.

We had a wonderful stay and would happily return to the Villa Cachee in the future. Thank you to the owners Andrew and Jayne for your communication throughout.
