Perfect holiday villa! 

Luxury Vendee Villa certainly lived up to expectations. If anything there was more of a wow factor on entering than I had imagined from looking at the photos. It is a very comfortable home from home set in beautiful countryside. Our large family took over the whole villa using all seven bedrooms but we never felt cramped as the living area, both inside and out, is very generous and well kitted out to cater for all your needs. We enjoyed several BBQs making use of the local shops and supermarkets. The gardens were very well kept by Amanda's husband Shane, as was the glorious salt water swimming pool. The large garden made for lots of outdoor fun during our week with croquet and boules, not forgetting the purpose built Games Room housing a pool table. We also enjoyed morning yoga sessions with Amanda who is a qualified yoga teacher. On our first night it was very convenient being able to walk to the restaurant L'Assiette Gourmande in the local village where we enjoyed a lovely meal. I would not hesitate to recommend this wonderful holiday villa and hope I am fortunate enough to return one day. Mr & Mrs Pearce. Aug 2017

A fantastic home away from home 

Amanda and her family have built a wonderful villa, that is extremely well appointed. The quality of the property, its furnishing and fittings are all of a very high standard, but it's all the little touches that helped make our holiday so relaxing, easy and very comfortable. Our party was 4 adults and 4 children of varying ages, and there was always something available to keep us entertained. The location of the villa also makes it a great base, to explore everything the region has to offer. I have no hesitation in recommending! Mr & Mrs R July 2017 

Luxury Vendee Villa lived up to it's description 

The Villa matched it's description, and was a superb location for our extended family holiday (all adults). Accommodation superb, and the facilities of Games Room, Salt water pool, Boule, Croquet and bar billiards kept all 14 of us fully occupied for the whole week, and we could all dine together, inside or outside. A walk into the local village gave Baker, Butcher and well stocked Spar grocer. A great success, and the owner Amanda was always available for help, advice and support. Highly recommended.

Stunning property which needs to be seen to be fully appreciated. 

It is spacious, immaculate, and very tastefully decorated and furnished. The owners are welcoming, available and do not intrude. You cannot go wrong with this choice of accommodation. Catherine T. Aug 2016

Highly recommend

This is a stunning villa, with a beautiful garden and pool. We thoroughly enjoyed our stay and would highly recommend it. The owners were very welcoming and were happy to help us plan our stay. They recommended loads of great places to visit, including the nearby Puy Du Fou (If you get the chance, this is definitely a great place to visit, not enough time in the day to go around all of it though). The villa is immaculately maintained and the kitchen was well equipped. The pool was warm, and it was great having all the outdoor furniture to use. We also took the offer of having chefs come to the house and cook us a meal. The food was great and it was very pleasant not having to cook. We wish we could have stayed longer, a great stay, thank you. Mr S Aug 2016

A tiny piece of paradise on Earth

Brilliant accommodation, superbly appointed villa. Gorgeous pool and terrace area. Stunning bedrooms and views. A wonderful location with walking, cycling and fishing and glorious beaches a 40 minute drive away. Lovely village with a restaurant, Spar, bakery and butchers a short walk away. Peaceful and beautiful. Simon G. Aug 2016

Lovely spacious Villa in peaceful countryside

We had a delightful stay during the May half term. From booking to arrival Amanda was incredibly helpful, sending a detailed information pack and great directions and meeting us on arrival. The villa was super clean, modern, and really well equipped. There were plenty of toys and space for the children to play, with an amazing plot for them to safely wander. We enjoyed our daily walk to the local village to the boulangerie. The villa is set in peaceful surroundings, you really feel like you are away from it all. All in all a great trip and we would definitely return in the future Mr Y May 2016

Outstanding property in beautiful countryside

What a fantastic property in the heart of the Vendee. From the moment of booking, Amanda provided everything we needed for a great holiday, always on hand should assistance be required. 
The house was very well equipped with plenty to do for the little ones, the pool was especially welcoming for adults too as we had some fantastic weather.
Rolling countryside, quaint villages, good quality markets and of course outstanding restaurants, our favourite being L'Assiette Gourmande in the village. We were warmly welcomed considering the size of our party (14), the service was excellent and the moules were outstanding!
We would have no problem booking again and hope to return in the future..... Stuart Aug 2015

Closer than the Provence

Amanda is a fantastic host! She can arrange anything you ask her and has a great network of people in the area who can be of any service to you. This is the cleanest house I've ever seen! And not only the cleanest, you will not find a better house anywhere in the neighbourhood. It's extremely comfortable with nice furniture and all kinds of nice things like a perfect pool, special led lighting, good porcelain, super fridge, great bathrooms etc. etc, etc. The village is small but has all you need within two minutes. A small Spar supermarket with all you need. A superb butcher for your Côte Bouf's and a prize winning Bakery. A gas station is close by with all those little things you might need further more. And in a ten minute distance supermerkets.

This is the perfect place to find your peace. And it's a lot closer by than the Provence! It was perfect! Thank you Amanda! Pieter July 2015

Lovely house, in peaceful location

We had a lovely stay at this delightful modern home, family ranged from 4years to 74 and we all enjoyed our time. We found all the things necessary for family needs, it was very clean and spacious. The pool was a little too cold for adults due to the bad weather spell but the children had fun in their wetsuits, and the pool was heated to 28 degrees. The kitchen/dining/family area is delightful and the children loved the party lights. They also enjoyed the ice maker on the fridge! The pool table was a fantastic addition. All the bedrooms and bathrooms were perfect for our family needs.

We visited Parc Brune which was great for children aged 4-12.

Thank you for a really enjoyable relaxing holiday Elizabeth.K August 2014

A nice holiday home with really helpful owners

A wonderful find. This property is truly excellent it had everything we needed and more. Children loved the pool. There was so much for everyone to do and so many amazing places to visit close by. Amanda could not have been more helpful from the minute we booked to after we had returned home. As we were a large family group we took advantage of the Chef coming in to cook us a meal. This was excellent and definitely recommended. Plenty of restaurants in the area if you want to eat out. Close to the village which has good shops for all usual requirements. Highly recommend - we will be back. Mr. Ed.B Aug 2014

Très bien - Grande villa

Nous avons eu la chance d'inaugurer cette nouvelle location qui semble bien partie pour faire une belle carrière. Maison très agréable pour grande famille ou séjour entre amis. Très bien agencée et décorée, pratique avec un jardin et une piscine tout aussi agréables. Nous y avons passé d'excellents moments malgré une météo capricieuse. A conseiller vivement !
