Our holiday in sainte Cecile.

  • 5 of 5

We really enjoyed our stay in sainte Cecile. The house was very clean and spacious. Our 3 children loved it. The bikes were great we cycled around the country roads. Lindsay was so friendly and welcoming and was a huge help providing information about the best places to visit so we could plan our trips. The house had absolutely everything you could want. Thank you Lindsay for all your help. Paula and Brendan.

Owner's Response: Hi Paula and Brendan, Good to hear that you all got home ok. I hope the journey wasn't too long. How's Dillan's sunburn - I imagine it's almost healed up by now? I was really glad to meet you all - it's a shame we didn't have time to spend an evening together. Anyway, take care and maybe we will meet you again (this time in Tipperary maybe.....) very warm regards Lindsay (ps I didn't find any left behind wallets!)

Our stay at Lindsay's house

  • 4 of 5

We had a great time in the Vendee. We enjoyed the 4 jours en Randonnee en stayed in this beautiful and big house. We had permission to use everything there was. The rooms are big, the kitchen is big and the private bathroom in my bedroom was great :-) There are 2 bathrooms and 2 toilets and everthing was clean.

Thank you for letting us stay in this nice house.

Au cœur du village, belle et grande maison très propre, très bien équipée ( rien ne manque), situation idéale pour visiter la région et à peine à 1/2 heure du Puy du Fou. Et que dire de l'accueil ! Lindsay est ADORABLE, CHALEUREUSE, elle vous reçoit comme un membre de la famille, vous offre plein de produits régionaux, vous donne des conseils de visite, des conseils d'itinéraire ... entre autre aller au Puy du Fou en évitant les embouteillages !!!!

Mesdames, Messieurs, vous faites ce que vous voulez mais nous, si nous retournons en Vendée, ce sera chez Lindsay, c'est l'endroit à ne pas rater surtout que, cerise sur le gâteau, les voisins sont très sympathiques.

Maison dans village tranquille

  • 3 of 5

Petite maison dans un village où il n'y a plus de boulangerie. Présence d'une petite surface commerciale et d'un bistro-restaurant. A +/- 1 heure de la mer, +/- 3/4 d'heure des marais ...

Maison pour laquelle nous avons fait déjà certaines remarques à la propriétaire en partant : literies peu confortables/pas de grandes casseroles/ garde-robes et placards occupés par des effets personnels/ pas de porte manteaux/ meubles peu solides et peu confortables/ attention, cuisinière à induction/ installation wifi dans une chambre (ondes) et des plantes dans une autre/couteaux qui ne coupent pas/ téléphone qui sonne constamment/ ...

Propriétaire très sympathique qui prévoit l'accueil avec un vin rosé vendéen au frigo + une autre bouteille de vin rouge + biscuits+ sardines+une spécialité de mogettes : pour cela, merci car nous avons du parcourir + de 60 km pour rien pour atteindre le gîte vu que le code postal fourni était erroné!

Un jardin spacieux et protégé si on a des enfants. Vélos à disposition.

Produits d'entretien et papier wc à disposition à l'arrivée : à remplacer si utilisés : système pratique et qui montre la confiance.

Maison pour loger mais, désolées, qui ne nous a pas fait rêvé.

Coût de l'entretien si on choisit de ne pas le faire avant de partir : 60 euros.

La maison prise en photo (ci-jointe) n'est pas le gîte loué.

There are also many historical towns and villages with their castles and restaurants (Fontenay le Comte, Luçon, Pouzauges, Clisson, Tiffauges, La Rochelle , Nantes and Vouvant) and nearby islands - Ré, Yeu and Noirmoutier! If you prefer the sporty option, why not a little sailing, surfing or windsurfing at La Tranche sur Mer and Jard sur Mer. If not, there is always a round of golf (Coëx, Port Bourgenay, la Rochelle, Cholet) or an afternoon fishing at one of the many lakes and ponds (eg. Pescalis fishing park!), and for those who want more, the tree adventure park - Indian Forest! If natural calm is your goal - why not a bike ride in the quiet country lanes or a stroll in the evening sun..
