Location description from owner

The Pays de la Loire region

Le Pressoir is only a 2 minute stroll from the centre of Angles, which has a large street market on both Wednesday and Sunday mornings - an excellent opportunity to sample much of the locally produced food, including cheese, meat, fish and wine.

In the summer months Angles organises special events in the square including fun days, evening entertainers, jazz and blues nights, firework displays and night markets. You can sit with the locals and enjoy 'moules & frites' listening to a band and watch the kids dance to their hearts content.

Located so close to the village, you can either take a leisurely walk down in the morning to pick up your fresh baguette and croissants, or stroll down in the evenings to a choice of great restaurants. You don’t have to load all the kids in the car (plus all of the equipment that comes with having a family) to have a great meal.

The village has its own Office de Tourisme, as well as a post office, two banks, a hairdresser, a beauty salon, an aromatherapist, a pharmacy, five cafés/bars and four restaurants. There are also two supermarkets, two butchers, a fishmonger and a fruit & vegetable shop.

The large fishing port of l'Aiguillon is just 10 minutes away. Early risers can choose from a range of freshly-caught fish, mussels, oysters, langoustine and gambas at the town's fish market which is open every weekday at 5am. Those who prefer a lie-in can sample the seafood later in the day at one of the many wonderful fish restaurants in the town.

With the Vendée's wonderful micro-climate, & less than an hour from La Rochelle, our luxury gite makes the perfect getaway for those wanting a quick, easy trip to sandy beaches & sunshine.

Don't forget, if you need picking up/dropping off at the air-port we offer transport to suite all needs. Due to the strict levels of drinking and driving laws in France we also offer a taxi service to and from local restaurants and attractions - Please contact us for details.

The fantastic sandy beaches are over 13 kilometres long - and 8 kilometres of them face due south. La-Tranche-sur-Mer and Les Conches are ideal for families with children.

It also has specialist equipment and entertainments which specifically cater for families.

Great Quad Bike/karting experience (2 minutes away by car)
Let the kids (and indeed the big boys!) be the next Lewis Hamilton or Jenson Button for a while! Whiz around the course and have a great thrill trying to beat your opponents. For safety reasons, the kids go on the course only with other children and the safety briefing is excellent. Whilst they are having fun on the track, the rest of the party can have a nice coffee in the covered terrace area. www.vendee-kart.fr

Excellent golf courses (30 minutes away by car)

“Wonderful village location, very near stunning and pristine beaches and great accommodation”

Reviewed 9 Nov 2016

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.

Owner's reply: Thank you so much for posting your fabulous 5* review of Le Pressoir :) Delighted you all had a lovely family holiday (and special 30th birthday celebration) at Le Pressoir. Great to meet you all and hope Poppy is as cute as ever! Very much look forward to welcoming you all back. Thanks again x

“Great base to explore the Vendee”

Reviewed 26 Oct 2016

We had based ourselves here in order to really explore this area of France. We sailed into Caen and made the journey down very easily in one afternoon. We were delighted with the little touches on our arrival. A bottle of wine and fresh flowers in the kitchen, complimentary toiletries and fresh fluffy towels. Felt more like a boutique hotel that a holiday rent. The house was wonderfully clean, exceptionally spacious, fully equipped and beautifully furnished. Most evenings we either strolled down to the village to eat or took the short drive to Tranche sur Mer. There is so much of the world to see but if I were to return to this part of France I would definitely re-book this property without a second thought.

Owner's reply: Thank you so much for your fabulous 5* review of Le Pressoir. We are so thrilled you had a wonderful holiday with us and loved all the 'little touches' we do to make sure each client has the perfect stay with us. We very much look forward welcoming you back one day. Thanks again x

“Great place to stay in the Loire area close to the ocean, wonderful cities nearby to explore and wine, of course!”

Reviewed 13 Oct 2016

My husband and I and two other couples stayed in Le Pressoir for a week in late May. The place was awesome and was very well supplied not only with things like coffee, tea and spices but also with any type of appliance/cooking utensil we would need. We particularly loved the kitchen/living room area with its family style table. It was the perfect gathering place for us at the end of the day. We enjoyed the pool as well...when the weather co-operated! It was fun to meet the owners, Donna and Jay. They were very quick to respond to questions and anything else we needed. What a great place to stay for exploring this area. Donna gave us some wonderful tips of where to go, best places to eat and when best to do some of these things. We loved our cycle trip around the Ile de Re and the visit to La Rochelle on market day! Angles offered all we needed in terms of food. ..bread and morning croissants down the street, and evening visits to the local cav offered evening libations if we hadn't found a local winery that particular day. Thanks for helping make this another one of our memorable trips, Donna and Jay.

Owner's reply: It was an absolute pleasure to meet you all, I just wish I could sit around the pool for 1/2hr, in the sunshine, with more of my clients...! :) We were so delighted you chose to stay with us whilst exploring this fabulous region of France. Please do remember to look us up next time you are visiting. Thanks again for taking the time to post your wonderful review of Le Pressoir – it is always greatly appreciated. x

“Comfortable, family friendly holiday house La Pergola”

Reviewed 19 Feb 2013

"Booking process, toys, garden, swimming pool, size and layout, villages and beaches close-by all great.  Would definitely consider returning and we have recommended La Pergola to friends"

Owner's reply: Thank you so much for taking the time to review La Pergola, we are thrilled that our holiday home worked so well for you and very much look forward to you returning soon.
