“Amazing stay at la Vendée!”
We have spent our easter holiday in this absolutely amazing and wonderful holiday home of Donna and Jay. What a pleasure! The house is decorated with so much taste. Lots of space and best of all: plenty of toys. It was difficult to take our kids out sightseeing, as they wanted to stay 'home'! Apart from the house, the region is well worth going too. We made some great day trips. Definitely worth going is Ile de Ré and rent some bikes. We also went to Puy du Fou, an attraction park unlike other attraction parks. We saw so many magnificent shows there, with knights, romains, vikings. Really impressive. We absolutely recommend this holiday as it truly is a holiday. You just relax and enjoy!
Owner's reply: Thank you so much for choosing to stay with us for Easter (in the glorious sunshine!!) It was such a pleasure to meet you and your beautiful family. Thrilled you loved Puy du Fou - all our clients love it as much as we do and go back year after year. Thanks for the 5* recommendation, we very much hope you will come back and see us next year. Take care and keep in touch. x
“Lovely Place, Lovely People and a Great Location”
La Pergola is one of three units sharing a common heated pool, and it's a fantastic place to stay. It has a well-equipped beautiful kitchen, warm decor, authentic stone French country-house construction and crisp, clean linens in the kitchen, bedrooms and bath. The staff is great -- it was clear from day one that a comfortable, enjoyable stay was their #1 priority. The weather was great, even though it was late in the season. This unit is quiet; you can't tell from the inside that you're just a block's walk from the city-center of Angles, where there's a market twice weekly, bank/ATM, boucherie/charcuterie, boulangerie, a tourist office with English-speaking staff, and other shops. A full supermarket (Intermarché Contact) is a pleasant, easy 1.2 km walk away. We made an outing to Les Sables d'Olonne to see the start of the Vendée Globe sailing race and had a wonderful time. Allez Alex!
Owner's reply: Thank you so much for your wonderful 5* review of La Pergola. We were thrilled you all had a fanatic stay and loved the decor & comfort of our home. We very much hope to welcome you back from 'across the pond' again soon :) Thanks again x
“La Pergola lived up to and probably exceeded the expectations of all of us, from grandparents down to grandkids”
Had a lovely stay at La Pergola, the property was excellent and very clean with some nice touches (the personalised welcomes and kids toys selections was great!) Good size pool and pool area with very nice outside dining/BBQ space. We liked the fact that this was separate from the communal pool area. Lots to do in the surrounding area – water parks, theme parks etc. and very good beaches at Les Conches and La Tranche sur Mer. Angles is a lovely village with lots of the amenities required. We all enjoyed enormously our stay in La Pergola - I am sure the pleasant memories will stay with our grandkids for a long time and will be recalled when deciding on future holidays
Owner's reply: We are just thrilled you all had such a wonderful holiday with us La Pergola and loved the personal touches we do for each and every client who visits us :) We very much look forward to welcoming you and your lovely family back again soon. Thanks again for taking the time to post your review. x
“Perfect family holiday”
I just wanted to say thank you so much for such a wonderful week at La Pergola. We've had the most amazing holiday and are very sad to be leaving. The gite is so fantastically well equipped - you really have thought of everything - and the children were spoilt for choice with all the toys to play with. It's fantastic to have such incredible beaches nearby and we loved being able to walk the Boulangerie each morning to get breakfast. We all agreed it was our best holiday yet and I really hope to come back again really soon!
Owner's reply: Fabulous to read that your stay with us at La Pergola has been your 'best holiday yet' and thrilled you all had an amazing time :) Thank you so much for posting your review - we really look forward to welcoming you all back - drop us a line and we'll get you all booked in for 2017 :) x
“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.
Owner's reply: Thrilled to read the kids had such a nice surprise when you opened the door, and your found the booking process easy and the house fully equipped and the perfect design for a great family holiday. Thanks so much for posting your excellent review, I know the weather wasn’t brilliant that particular week, which must have been disappointing, but the house and all the fabulous facilities stay - thank fully the weather will pass. We very much hope to see you all again soon, and thank you by the way for leaving the house so incredibly tidy on departure – it was very much appreciated :) x
“Perfect getaway; gorgeous gite in a beautiful part of France.”
We have just returned from a weeks stay in La Pergola & I have to say every member of our party absolutely loved it. The gite is full of character, finished to a high standard & has everything you need (& more!) It genuinely appeared that a lot of thought had gone into the preparation of the property for us. There were a couple of lovely villa assistants that popped by to welcome us & they gave us plenty of tips about the local area. We didn't need them during the week but it was nice knowing they were on hand if we did. The location was ideal being only a few mins walk from the village centre, a short drive from a big supermarket & less than 10 mins from one of the best beaches I've ever seen. We will definitely be visiting La Pergola again.
Owner's reply: Thank you for your great review of La Pergola. We are delighted that all your party members absolutely loved our holiday home. We take great pride providing high quality accommodation and all the little extras that make a great holiday experience. Thank you again and we look forward to welcoming you back to La Pergola soon.
“Wonderful gite in perfect location.. We will be back!”
Making the most of some glorious weather in France we stayed in Le Pergola in mid April, we wanted a quiet break that was more than just comfortable, walking distance to local amenities, close to the beach and activities for the kids and we were not disappointed. Le Pergola is a beautiful gite, set in a converted barn building it has been renovated to an excellent standard, everything smacks of good quality (definitely no granny’s old sofas here). We were welcomed in to an immaculately clean holiday home, a welcome pack to ensure that we could get a brew going as soon as we arrived and masses of information about what we could do during our stay. Huge TV to keep hubby happy with the Grandprix, enjoying his favourite Nesspresso coffee. Jaccuzzi bath, delicious smellies and large fluffy towels for me, followed by a glass of wine in the secluded garden with a good book borrowed from the well-stocked shelves. The girls had hours of fun playing swing ball having spent an afternoon taking a trip down memory lane looking through the huge collection of toys on offer and desperate to fit into the dressing up clothes (complete with clippy cloppy shoes) and become a Disney Princess again. If your kids are under 10 they will have no shortage of things to keep them entertained, there is even the kit to do some cooking with the children and a planting set to do some gardening. I only wish I had found this holiday whilst my kids were still small, we would have then had room in the car for our stuff and not have it filled with all the kit for the small people. The shared pool is a good size and the deck and surrounding garden well maintained although we were too early in the season to use the pool, it did look very inviting. The very pretty sleepy village is genuinely just a 5 minute gentle stroll from Le Pergola, close enough and safe enough for the girls to wander down and buy fresh croissants for breakfast. We had an excellent meal in one of the local restaurants. There is so much to do right on your door step that entertaining two teenage girls was a doddle everything from miles and miles of beautiful sandy beaches just a 10 minute drive away ( yes even in April we managed some time in shorts and t shirts paddling in the sea), some retail therapy in the little seaside shops, rope climbing in the trees through to the wonderful Aquarium at La Rochelle. All in all a great success and we will definitely be back.
Owner's reply: Thank you for taking the time to write your great review on La Pergola - we are thrilled you had a wonderful holiday with us. Thanks also for ordering our new 'glossy book' (which was left in the accommodation, highlighting all the best bits of this area i.e. beaches, attractions, restaurants and markets etc.) Like you, many clients have found this information invaluable when on holiday and have now ordered a copy to take home so they can share their great holiday experience with their family and friends - your copy should be with you shortly. Thanks again and we very much look forward to welcoming you and your family back soon.
“Hugely disappointed and appalled by low standards”
In August 2012 my family stayed in La Pergola with our family friends. We were 4 adults and 4 children aged 7 to 12. We paid £2945 for the property for 7 nights so we expected it to be extremely nice. We were completely fooled by the superlatives used in the advert for the property, none of which were true. Whenever we choose holiday accommodation we check all the reviews and the detail in the advert because we want it to be as comfortable as home and it is so important to get it right. We thought that our attention to detail made our choices infallible but we were proved wrong by our stay at La Pergola. When I re-read the advert now I just can’t believe it’s meant to be the same place. It was hugely disappointing and our entire holiday was ruined by the mistake we had made. The issues fell into 2 main areas; firstly the place had not been cleaned properly but secondly, (and more importantly because these issues can’t be fixed quickly), is that the place is shabby and tired, kitted out with low graded fixtures and fittings and DIY nightmares are evident. You don’t need to read the rest of my review. Just take a look at the pictures. As soon as we got into the kitchen we knew something was wrong. The kitchen and lounge is dark and dingy (nothing like the bright sunny pictures on the advert). But even in this light we could still see that the kitchen was not clean. The cupboard fronts were covered in greasy smears and sauce had run into the cutlery drawer and dried. We didn’t really explore much further before we called the maintenance company because we were so unimpressed. Cathy and Jody arrived very quickly. Cathy was pleasant and chatty. Jody (who turned out to be the Manager) seemed to be a bit put out by our complaint and hardly spoke apart from to mutter that the cupboards weren’t that bad. He said that the smears were just cleaning solution that hadn’t been dried off. Soon after we discovered the other horrors; 50% of the crockery and glassware in the cupboards had obvious food remnants on it. The lower cupboard fronts were also dirty so we set to work to clean them because we just wanted it done properly. We took every item out of the cupboards and washed them by hand. Underneath the sink the damp stench was nauseating. We wiped it out and splintered damp wood covered the cloth. Outside the BBQ hadn’t been touched since the previous visitors. The racks were covered in meat and grease remnants. We called the maintenance company again and Cathy told us that her Manager said the property is "up to standard" and the BBQ has been cleaned. Nevertheless they then sent the maintenance guy responsible for the outdoors who admitted that it had been missed. Over the next few hours and days we discovered the countless other issues with the property described below. We had the maintenance team over several times to discuss our complaints and clean the place throughout but there was only so much they could fix in a week when most of the issues are endemic in a poorly furbished property. The entertainment system was covered in months’ worth of dust (see the picture!). The washing machine is outside in a shed! There is no outside light so we had to use a torch to hang up washing after dark! Airconditioning is supplied by freestanding units which are like ugly daleks in each room and sound like tractor engines when they are set to cold so completely useless. Upstairs master bed creaked when the occupants as much as breathed so disturbed everyone for 3 nights until the maintenance company managed to reduce the problem by wrapping the slats in cloth. Downstairs bathroom has degraded laminate round wash basins and perished blackened mastic. Outside areas are neglected; decking not swept so previous tenants’ BBQ skewers remained, leaves everywhere, bench table for outside dining is not cleaned and is just a dirty wooden bench table that you would find in a park, sunloungers are covered in bird droppings, there is a rusty old ice cream freezer next to the shared pool, covered in tarpaulin with old cartons stuffed behind it. Fences round the pool and at entrance to the gite are falling down so have been propped up with spare pieces of decking and screwed in. Rusty screws protruded out of these and they were also a trip hazard. The decking is loose and generally manky. Needs rubbing down, oiling. The wood is old and splintering. Poolside parasol had rusted base with insecure attachment so that in a light wind the parasol came out of its base and missed one of our children who was sitting by the pool, by inches. We had to wedge it with a magazine. Since returning home we have had a dialogue with the owner. To try to explain away our issues he said that different people have different expectations of a property!! We asked for 50% refund. He said that if he agreed any payment we would have to suspend our right to post our views on third party sites. His final response was to come back with an offer of 250 euros and said he admitted no liability. Of course we turned it down! I am happy to be contacted by anyone for further information on our experiences of this property.
Owner's reply: Sadly it was apparent, from the beginning, that these clients were unlikely to be happy at any point during their stay even with all the additional free services they accepted at the time and the many hours we spent with them resolving issues. We ask readers to please take time to read the 'balanced' reviews also posted by families who have stayed at our reputed holiday home, over the years who do not, thankfully, share the same opinion. We are passionate about our holiday homes, our small family-run business for 10 years, and about the service we provide to our clients. We always listen to feedback and improve our service/product to ensure high standards continue to be maintained and meet. We are just sorry to have failed to meet these customers' expectations and understand that people's tastes vary.
The location of the property was excellent, so great to be able to walk to the local restaurants and shops. Also great to have all the toys available and not have to pack any. The property guide was our bible for the week it was so useful we followed all the recommendations on beaches and restaurants and were not disappointed. We stayed late September beginning of October. The weather was nice, not quite sunbathing weather but we still spent time on the beaches.
Owner's reply: Great to read that you found the location of La Pergola excellent and that all the toys and games for the kids were a huge hit! We work very hard to make sure our clients have all the information ready and waiting for them once when they arrive, so they can relax and plan tomorrows exciting adventure over a nice glass of local wine! Thank you again for taking the time to write your review - we always appreciate receiving such great comments.
"We thoroughly enjoyed the house very much. The children toys would have been great for the younger children. The pool was fantastic, correct temperature and a lovely size. The pool attendant was very friendly The house keeps were brilliant, very efficient, friendly and helpful. The markets in Angles were very good as were the local shops, butcher, bakery and pizza restaurant - all fantastic. Beach at le Rocher was also fantastic for sand, rock pooling and for letting our dog 'hiccup' off the lead. Thank you also to Catherine and Jody for all the excellent advice"
Owner's reply: Your positive and kind comments regarding La Pergola and our efficient, friendly and helpful staff have been passed on to our team, as you can imagine they were thrilled to read your comments! It is always appreciate when clients take the time to write about their great holiday, so a very big thank you. We very much look forward to welcoming you all back soon.
