This was our second family vacation to the area and on both occasions we have stayed in this villa. It is absolutely superb, it offers everything you need to enjoy your stay. The villa is immaculate, all the bedrooms are extremely comfortable and spacious. There are plenty of bathrooms for a larger group and it also boasts a fully equipped kitchen for all your needs!
The property has a great layout for all the family to enjoy, it has patio doors straight out into a wonderful private garden area with its own pool, great for the kids or a nice relaxing dip. There is also a covered area to sit and relax, reading your book or to take five minutes out of the sun.
The location for this property is excellent, it is in a private community with plenty to see and do within the surrounding area. If you are a fan of golf like myself then you are in luck. Situated in the complex is a wonderful 18 hole course 'Golf des Fontenelles' which has its own pro shop, driving range,practice putting area on site. Highly recommended for a round of golf or two during your stay. There is a clubhouse on site to stop for a quick bite to eat or a drink to cool off. I would definitely recommend booking a meal at the on site restaurant 'Le Balata' the food is delicious, set within a comfortable dining area and its only stroll back to your villa in the evening.
As well as the golf the area is well suited for walking,cycling or even a spot of tennis down by the communal pool area next to the clubhouse.
The location for this property simply could not be better, everything is just a short drive away with plenty of tourist attractions for all the family to enjoy. The villa provides a wonderful welcome pack with leaflets of suggested activities and places of interest within the Vendee area.
I will definitely be returning to this villa and would highly recommend it to anyone.
Great villa in a fantastic setting. The house is very well equipped both inside and out. Lovely patio and a super swimming pool make for lazy days. Golf course on site is a real bonus. Nearby town of Saint Gille is lovely with plenty of cafes, shops and restaurants. Communication with the owners is very easy.
We've now visited this area twice for our main summer holidays over the past couple of years and used this villa on both occasions. It simply offers everything you could possibly need. The villa sits within an extensive and private garden offering the opportunity to enjoy the sun, the shade, quiet time, family fun and games and of course the large heated pool. Inside the villa is as immaculate and spotlessly clean as you would expect. Every possible requirement is covered allowing you to enjoy the complete comfort and space. The kitchen is fully equipped and the main open plan lounge and dining area is great for relaxing or entertaining after a hard day's sunbathing! All the bedrooms are equally spotless and totally comfortable. The villa is situated within a safe and secure private complex providing lots of opportunity for walking, cycling, golfing, tennis or just relaxing at the club house where there is a great selection of fresh food to choose from and cool drinks of course. The Vendee area also has lots to offer and keep adults and kids entertained. Beautiful beaches are only a short drive away and we enjoyed exploring all the local tourist attractions including theme and water parks, aquariums, a zoo and much more. You will not be disappointed if you book this villa and we will certainly be returning. Everything you could wish for in a holiday home.
Had a magnificent holiday. We have 2 young children who were 6 and 4 and they had a ball. The pool and garden was superb, our children's confidence and swimming came on leaps and bounds with our daughter being in the pool every day no matter where we were during the day or what time we came back. On most days she was virtually last out often in the pool until 8pm or 9pm. We played Tennis and golf on site which again no mater your ability were superb. The Vendee area has loads to offer for all age's water parks, the beaches, the zoo's, quaint French villages and many more. The accommodation was also fabulous. Plenty of shower rooms to go round, great social with the downstairs being an open plan space with more than enough room outside to dine. I cant recommend highly enough.
A perfect villa for a family holiday. Loads of space for garden games and the pool is a real luxury. The local area has a very traditional French feel. We found a great restaurant in Coex and also had good food at the on-site hotel. St Gilles is about a 10 minute drive and has markets, a good beach and a large shopping centre.
Played tennis and went to the golf driving range on the complex. There is karting 5 mins away and waterparks in the area for day trips. Plenty to do, but I would have been just as happy spending time relaxing at the villa.
