“Perfect place for families with young children!” We stayed at the end of May early June in this wonderful property. We were two families with 4 young children aged between 8 months and 4 years. The booking process was easy, the team kept us updated each step of the way with clear instructions on payments etc and info on which property would fit our needs best. When we opened the front door the girls went crazy, the team had laid out the princess dresses ready for them to ump into straight away, wonderful touch which really made us all smile, the girls were in holiday mode and never really looked back after that. The property is perfectly designed for young families, all the things you'd drag from home have been accounted for. The house is well equipped for home cooking with everything you'd expect to find in your own kitchen. The adults were greeted with a lovely bottle wine and a hand written note, lovely touch. The pool and pool area is perfect, the kids could just about stand up (4yr old) and although it wasn't very warm you could always jump in the jacuzzi for a heat up. The location of the property is great, lovely quite little area with a 5-10 minute walk into town where there is a butchers, baker and a couple of very friendly restaurants. Despite the bad weather we still had a great time.
“Perfect family holiday” We were genuinely impressed by this Gite. We traveled with 2 young kids, and their grandparents and this catered for all. The Gite itself was clean and really well laid out, had bags of stuff for the kids and stuck the perfect balance between a relaxing place for the grown ups, and a place where the kids could let loose.
We loved the welcome basket and the personal message for our kids, made them feel really special, a really nice touch.
The team were really helpful and attentive, without being intrusive...not an easy balance to strike.
The Gite was really well placed for us with loads to do with the kids nearby. We didn't want to spend loads of time in the car, but we visited the beach, a chateau with a dinosaur attraction, local restaurants, the marina and loads more, all within easy reach.
The recommendations in the welcome pack are really good, we would certainly recommend using them.
We loved the pool area and the hot tub, and our kids made friends with the family in the next Gite, which was great.
I cannot recommend this place highly enough, we loved it and we would definitely go back.
“Wonderful family accommodation” We had a great time staying at La Mirabelle. The accommodation was ideal for both a group of adults and small children. Loads of toys both inside and outside and lovely social space for the grown ups. The attention to detail from all of the staff from booking through to the end of our stay was fantastic - personalised and bespoke to ensure all our needs were met. I would really recommend this accommodation and the team who run it.
“Wonderful village location, very near stunning and pristine beaches and great accommodation” My family and I had a wonderful 2 weeks at the beginning of September. We also had our young dog with us. The gite is comfortable and very well furnished. The open plan sitting, dining & kitchen area is large and spacious and, with a very well stocked kitchen and, a great selection of kitchen gadgets & cooking utensils. The bedrooms and bathrooms were beautiful and very comfortable. The Support Team were great whenever we needed help / guidance. There is a lovely small enclosed garden and covered seating area. The pool & pool area is very nice and completely safe. The village is gorgeous and all the local people we met were very friendly. It is a good location for local beaches, to visit La Rochelle, Nantes, Fonteney Le Comte, Vouvant and the 'green Venice' - the beautiful canals and Marshlands.
“A Great option for a Family Holiday” The first impression walking through the door at Le Mimosa was excellent and the personal touches great. Lots of stuff to amuse kids of all ages. The house was very clean and the attention to detail from the staff excellent. We would definitely recommend this villa, in fact we have already booked for next year as we had an excellent holiday!
Great to have such excellent accommodation with just a short walk to village restaurants & shops. Don't miss the market.
The perfect property for an extended family stay. Fantastically well equipped so clothes are the only thing required to bring in addition. Lots to do in the area and the house, particularly in regards to the playroom which kept the children engaged for hours! The pool and garden were perfect too. The whole place was spotless and the cleaning greatly appreciated. Excellent attention to detail, La Mirabelle exactly as described and we would highly recommend. …

Amazing villa in a perfect location
The detailed guidebook sent in advance of our arrival to La Pergola made it easy to plan our holiday activities. On arrival the children (7, 4 & 1 years old) were thrilled with all the toys, dressing up clothes and books that were all provided. The fact that these are all supplied meant we could pack lighter knowing they wouldn't miss their home comforts. The personal touches were excellent as was the cleanliness of the villa and friendliness of everyone. The owners were always on hand to help if needed and were very friendly.
Sharing the pool with two other villas was brilliant as the kids play with each other while you relax. There’s enough privacy to have your own space and time away from the pool etc.
The local area is amazing, there’s a water park and activity centre call the Indian forest which has enough activities for 3 full days out at least. There’s also go karting, horse riding beaches, play centres etc.
We visited the bakery and cafe daily which was a short walk from La Pergola for fresh bread and wonderful coffee. Overall we had a wonderful family holiday which offered something for each of us from aged 69yrs to 1yrs! Thank you. …
Mins from sandy beaches, villa location, pool, hot tub, sauna
Great place for a RELAXING kids holiday!
We’ve just enjoyed an excellent stay at Le Pressoir. Highlight for the kids was the pool which was child-friendly and secure. The house is just a short walk into the town centre which had a lovely French feel to it and is also close to several good beaches. There is so much to do in the surrounding area but also it's a great property to just stay in and chill with a beer and BBQ! Great stay and we definitely recommend. …
Heated/fenced pool, mind from sandy beaches, villa location
Perfect family-oriented house with everything provided
Le Palmier is the ideal blend of good location, great amenities, space and a relaxed family home. The fact that the owners make booking, preparing and staying there so straightforward and efficient ensures we had one of our best holidays for some time. We chose Le Palmier given the broad age range of our children from 2 to 15 and the house catered for all of us exceptionally well. The website is easy to navigate and with lots of detail including a layout which always creates confidence in choosing a place. It would help to have the exact location on a map although was not difficult to find with a little research. Making the booking was made easy mainly by Donna and her team's input. While not afraid to book entirely online, I find having personal interaction via email and phone reassuring and makes the process simpler. Instructions were simple and easy to understand.
There are a range of additional cost options which we took advantage of. The additional cost for end of stay cleaning was not optional however - I would have preferred to have that incorporated in the price given it was obligatory.
The house is located in walking distance of the village with a small selection of restaurants and bars etc and a very short drive to a supermarket. It's a close enough drive to the beach to be convenient and there is plenty of parking there. The village hosted a range of evening entertainment on the green through the week we stayed.
The house is well maintained and was very clean. Lots of towels and bedding available and the kitchen has plenty of equipment. The feel is very comfortable and homely which made it a very relaxing environment for everyone. With the large amount of space available it took no time at all for everyone to settle in and it felt like home very quickly. Seating is comfortable and well looked after and the decor is well maintained and welcoming. The kitchen has two large fridge freezers and lots of cupboard space. All crockery, glassware and pans are in good condition, clean and plentiful. There are plenty of toys and games for the children. Keeping childrens' toys in perfect condition and complete is a tough ask so finding toys less than perfect was not surprising. However having them there saves taking them and they served very adequately for our children and they appeared clean and safe.
The house has a well lit, covered eating area with large table and permanent barbeque. It leads to a small grass area with outside drier and then to the pool which is fully fenced and secure. The pool is heated and at a temperature where young children could stay in for some time. Easy to access with steps at one end and it doesn't get very deep. Pool toys are also available and there's enough space in there for all the houses to use simultaneously.
We visited the O'Gliss Water Park (5 mins drive) which worked for everyone. Tip: book in advance, if you can stretch to a family plus area you have a private place to sit/rest and save hours queuing for the large rides. La Rochelle is a great place to visit. Puy Du Fou is 1.15 hrs away and impressive although expect to queue for a lot of the shows. We didn't get the full value given the age of our youngest children and not being able to queue for any length of time.
In summary, we would highly recommend Le Palmier and expect to return. …
Ideal for families sharing, mins to sandy beaches, villa location
We had a mixed age holiday 75 down to 4 and we all had a wonderful time. Booking was easy and the staff were all really helpful, we couldn’t have asked for better service. The house was perfect for all ages with toys for all from Wii to dressing up clothes for the little one.
Really clean and the pool was fabulous. The location was excellent as it was so close to beach, supermarket and a short walk to the village.
. Brilliant work Donna and Jay. …
A few improvements to make it very good.bathrooms exceptional.notice fees for next year are less and I think that is fair. Having paid on time waiting 10 days for return of deposit a rather long time. No instructions as to hospital or doctors Etc.Have been going to sites for quite a while there is usually a book with all these details. But this is a new owner.If there is anything you do not wish to leave in the house take it out before paying customers arrive. Look forward to receiving my deposit. All other sites have paid by direct bAnk transfer which is not charged as an extra cost. Just teething problems …
