“Great villa and location”
Reviewed 11 April 2016 for a stay in March 2016

Excellent service from Annette who we booked the holiday through. We had to cancel the holiday at the last minute in October due to my son being ill with shingles. Annette re-arranged our holiday for April, nothing was too much trouble.
The property is lovely, spacious and homely and so very close to the sea. The beach is wonderful. The shops/town are only about 15 mins walk along the beach.
Super U (the local supermarket) had everything you could ask for (about 5 mins drive away).
It was cheaper to hire a car for the week from La Rochelle than get a taxi. A car is a must just to get to the supermarket.
Recommend going out of season as the beach is so quiet although you take a risk with the weather.
We were disappointed we could not use the swimming pool but this was due to the time of year we went.
What we would have found useful on the website information on the times/days the supermarket/shops open/close.
We had difficulty hiring a car as we arrived on Easter Sunday and all the airport car hire companies we closed. By chance we found a company just opening (BUGS) car hire based at the airport and had one car available. They provided us with an excellent service.
We would love to go back again sometime.

“Fabulous! A truely ideal family holiday villa.”
Reviewed 9 July 2014 for a stay in June 2014

It's our first experience of France, so choosing a destination that was right for the family was important. After reading many descriptions of different villas, I came across this one. Very well and accurately described, the pictures seemed nice, but to be fair didn't do the villa nor it's location justice. I was amazed stepping through the door.
Every room was clean and tidy, however I think the bunk bed room could do with alittle tlc, compared to the rest of the house it's not as ' loved' as it could be.
We went to La Rochelle to the aquarium - it's a forty minute drive from the villa, but well worth the time. We had a brilliant day there.
We spent most mornings at the beach which was a ten minute walk or a 5 minute drive to the centre where access to the beach was easy from the car park and the afternoons in the villa pool. We were lucky with the weather, the coldest day in early June was 22 and we had several days at 26 so the tans were gradual. Ideal weather for children.
We made full use of the well equipped villa, the only thing we didn't do was play on the Ping pong table....we simply ran out of time!!
I will definitely return to France and I wouldn't hesitate to book this villa again if we chose the same area again.
Super holiday, fabulous accommodation, I'm sad I didn't book it for two weeks!!

“Great pool and beach holiday and a home from home”
Reviewed 24 August 2012 for a stay in August 2012

A well-equipped family home with everything needed for a comfortable and relaxing holiday. Beach is 5 min walk. Boulangerie is a 5 min cycle. Centre of town is also very accessible with lots of restaurants and shops. SuperU supermarket was 5 min drive and had good quality produce including excellent fresh seafood. In the house, wifi worked perfectly, as did the satellite TV, so when we weren't eating, in the pool or on the beach we watched lots of the olympics. Our weather was mostly fantastically hot and sunny so we ate at the table outside, 8 around the inside table was a bit of a squeeze! The only downside was some blocked plumbing which meant 2 en-suite facities out of 4 were out of action for part of our stay, but the kids didn't mind sharing, so it wasn't a major problem.

All in all we had a lovely time - thank-you to the owners for sharing their lovely home!
