Further details indoors

The house is built on two floors surrounding the rear garden and swimming pool which can be viewed from all the rooms. It features three double bedrooms, two of which with their own en-suite. Two of the double bedrooms are located on the ground floor with direct access to the exterior and as the house has level access throughout the ground floor, it is very suitable for groups including members with limited mobility. There is a family bathroom complete with full-size bath and shower on the first floor to serve the other bedrooms. There is large dining room with separate kitchen area, and a cosy sitting room both with direct access to the covered terrace and pool area. The interior is simple and tastefully modern.

Further details outdoors

The heated pool is surrounded by large sunbathing terraces and sandy areas shaded by trees. It is securely fenced off from the house area. Gently sloping steps lead into the water at the shallow end, and there is a diving deck at the deep end where there is also a shower and separate WC and handbasin. Another great feature is the large, covered terrace with dining table and barbecue and space for table tennis, even if it is raining! Plenty of off-road parking for four or more vehicles at the front and a large garage for storing bikes, surfboards, etc.. We supply a number of bikes and various items of beach gear for your use.

The Pays de la Loire region

The Vendee is blessed with a sunny and warm microclimate resulting in similar sunshine hours to mediterranean resorts, making it a favourite place for beach and nature lovers of all nationalities, but particularly the French. The coastal towns remain relatively unspoilt and La Rochelle, in particular, is a beautiful old port, steeped in history. Inland, there is much to see, varying from the 'Venise Vert' (green Venice) with its canals and old towns to castles and amusement parks such as the 'Puy de Fou' with its famous historical enactments. Cycling in the area is a delight with many waymarked and often traffic-free cycle trails up and down the coast, and inland.

La Tranche sur Mer

La Tranche-sur-Mer is a very typical, unspoilt, family-friendly seaside town with a very 'French' atmosphere. In the summer months the town organises many activities, mostly free, including live performances ranging from folk and jazz to rock bands. There is an excellent twice-weekly market and a wide variety of good restaurants, bars and shops. In La Terriere itself there is a baker, bar and hotel/restaurant. Our local beach 'La Terriere Plage' is, without doubt, the best in the area. It is well-supervised, has a large car park and several snack bars and two surf schools. The beach is huge and it is easy to get away from the crowds, if you wish. There is an official 'clothing optional' area a short distance from the main beach.

"First class accommodation in a superb location."

We found this property met all of our expectations and more. L'Etoile de Mer is a modern, fully equiped villa with heated pool which provides first class accommodation for famililies of all ages. The house is situated on a small select and quiet development just outside the holiday resort of La Tranche sur Mer and close to the beach and local village of La Terriere which is only five minutes or so walk. The house is well furnished and very comfortable with good sized rooms and a large outdoor covered veranda, ideal for al fresco meals. The additional availability of 6 bicycles was a real bonus for our family especially with so many cycle tracks in the immediate vicinity. The children in our party described their stay here as their best holiday ever!

"Large , modern villa in a beautiful location with activities for all the family close by."

We had a wonderful holiday in La Tranche sur Mer and loved the villa in La Terriere which was absolutely ideal for two families with six teenagers between us! The weather was lovely with perfect conditions for surfing and bodyboarding at the local beach. We mainly chilled out around the pool and beach with a couple of trips to La Rochelle and La Sable D'Olonne (it was hard trying to galvanise the troops to leave the immediate area!) The house was beautifully equipped - its so rare not to feel that there's nothing else you require! The use of the bikes and beach equipment was particularly good for us as we didn't need to take bikes for everyone but we could all go out together. All in all a wonderful villa, pool and location and we definitely hope to return!

"All holiday rentals should be like this."

We had a great family holiday (6 adults & 3 children). This is a well equipped, modern property in a quiet location. Lots to do at the house:- Swimming pool, bicycles, table tennis, games, info & maps of the area, UK freeview (no idea how you get UK freeview in France) etc. Easy access to miles of beaches, forest cycle/walking routes. Nearest town 5mins drive, LaRochelle 1hrs drive, LaSables 40mins drive.
