The Pays de la Loire region
The Vendee is an ideal family holiday destination, being very easy to get to (just 3 hours from the ferry port of St Malo), yet far enough south to enjoy a great climate. There is also easy fly-drive access via the nearby airports of Nantes and La Rochelle.
You will find a wide choice of attractions to visit and holiday activities for the children, including many theme parks. There are many chateaux with history pageants and festivities, beautiful botanical gardens, and of course the fabulous coastline with its sandy beaches and excellent water sports facilities. A trip to the history theme park “Le Puy du Fou” is an unforgettable day out for all the family – not to be missed. In the south of the Vendee, there is also the famous “Green Venice” area, for a relaxing punt trip through the canals and waterways. The more adventurous will find plenty to keep them busy; go-karts, micro-lights, quad excursions, hot-air ballooning, tree adventure parks, paint-ball, as well as excellent surfing spots.

"A nice stay but probably not the best house for very small children"
The house is nicely decorated and well-equipped. It is in a good location, walking distance to restaurants, shops and the beach. We had the same problem that I now see in a previous review that the st… More
As we have replied previously, the design of the staircase does make it difficult to fit a stair-gate. We have had 2 to 3 year olds staying with no real difficulties, but the owners are certainly mindful of this need. If a suitable solution can be found I'm sure they will do their best to make this improvement. We have always published a photo that shows the staircase, so we feel that guests are informed before booking.
Having consulted the owners on the condition of the decking, they assure me that it is checked each year for anything raised up. When they use the property themselves, and with grand-children, they are often bare-footed with no problems. However, a wooden deck may not suit everyone...
Indeed there was a confusion regarding the optional cleaning service. The cleaning option was chosen on the rental contract, so normally this would have been paid on arrival. The situation is then clear and only a quick look is needed, for any obvious damage. Unfortunately the owners had not taken this into account so an inspection was done. I do agree that departure inspections can sometimes make guests feel uncomfortable, particularly when they don't understand what is being said. There is a clear explanation of cleaning arrangements on our website, although I would certainly always recommend taking up the cleaning service option for peace of mind.

Very glad to hear that you enjoyed your stay at "L'Atelier". The design of the staircase does make it difficult to fit a stair-gate. We have had 2 to 3 year olds staying with no real difficulties, but the owners are certainly mindful of this need. If a suitable solution can be found I'm sure they will do their best to make this improvement.
Sadly the lack of hand-basins in toilets is frequently the case in French homes. It seems to be a habit with French architects... I will make sure that your very helpful comments are passed on the owners.
