- Very Good
We stayed in Le Pressoir (myself, hubby and 2 children) Booking was very straightforward and everything was explained fully :-) Donna and Jay are fabtastic and made sure we were warmly welcomed (we even had a welcome messsge in the garden chalk board which our kids loved!) The villa was superb! Really spacious with everything you could want for a family holiday including books to read, dvds to watch and games to play! Bedrooms were perfect and so comfy, jacuzzi baths and excellent showers. The hot tub and pool are really clean and inviting. Local area is beautiful - fresh bread just 2 minutes walk and lovely restaurants. Local beach was gorgeous!! Lots to do in the surrounding area including a lovely zoo Highly recommended and would definitely book again!!
Owner's reply: Thank you so much for your 'fabtastic' 5* review of Le Pressoir and all your very kind comments - greatly appreciated :) We are just thrilled you all had such a wonderful holiday with us in September and we very much look forward to welcoming you all back soon. Thank you again x
“Fabulous Retreat in Western France”
This comfortably furnished gite was the perfect place to have access to beautiful soft sandy beaches only 15 to 20 minutes away. Other destinations in the area make great daily visits. Within the little village of Angles, there is a post office, a beauty salon, a small grocery, boulangerie and a weekly outdoor market to get fresh vegetables, fresh fish and other assorted items. The most wonderful butcher is steps away, He also makes delicious morning delights. All of these conviences are a 3-5 minute walk away. A large grocery is a 10 to 15 minute walk away, as well as, Guinot, to have a massage or other beauty treatment. This home is a child’s dream come true. Assorted toys, books and an incredible array of princess dresses and shoes for the children with vivid imaginations of living in a Chateau’s sparked by the books they have read or the Chateaus they may have visited in France. Infant articles are also available. Changing table and most supplies are furnished. Potty seats for the regular toilets are supplied, as well as, appropriate high interest clean toys. A large bookcase brims with assorted adult and children’s movies. Outdoors is a bar-b-q overlooking the large swimming pool. The owners Jay and Donna are absolutely fabulous hosts, making your visit the best experience. Well priced, great location and wonderful owners.
Owner's reply: It was a real pleasure to meet and host you at Le Pressoir in September. Thank you so much for your fabulous 5* review and for all your very kind comments. We are thrilled you had a wonderful stay and very much look forward to welcoming you back. Thank you again x
“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.
Owner's reply: Thanks so much for your wonderful comments from your stay in Le Pressoir and for your recommendations - greatly appreciated :) We very much looking forward to welcoming you all back soon, thanks again x
“A brilliant holiday location”
We live in France and were looking for nice child friendly gîte big enough to invite over our family from the UK to, so we could all be together for the May half-term week. From the minute we made our enquiry to the end of the holiday, the service received from Donna and her team was fantastic. The house has everything ready and waiting for you, all you need are clothes! The pool was warm and very secure, the kids’ equipment in abundance and the personal touches for our arrival fantastic. We loved our week in Le Pressoir and highly recommend this gîte.
Owner's reply: We are so delighted you were able to bring all your family together for the fun May half-term holidays at Le Pressoir. Thank you so much for your very kind comments and for taking the time to post your 5* review. It was a pleasure to meet you all and do let us know if you'd love to come back next May half-term - our booking line is now open for 2019...! Thanks again x
“Home from home”
We've had a wonderful stay at Le Pressoir. The house is fantastic - the toys/dress up clothes and books were all brilliant. My children have discovered the love of Mr Men! I loved the open plan kitchen/living area which is perfect with small children, and the proximity to the village of Angles was fab. We all loved popping into the village for a 'pain au chocolate' or an evening beer! The pool was brilliant, very warm and the children loved the outdoor games area too. The swim fence and safety gate were a real peace of mind with the little ones. Thanks you for a lovely stay .”
Owner's reply: Another 5* review of Le Pressoir, yayyy thank you. It really was an absolute pleasure to host you and we very much look forward to welcoming you all back very soon. Thanks again x
“Fabulous house, great location and service”
Just returned from an unforgettable week at Pressoir. 4 adults 2 toddlers and 1 baby enjoyed this very well equipped and lovely villa - the minute you walk in the door you feel at home, the beds were super comfy, linen/towels fresh, huge amount of toys for the kids and all the personal touches were very much appreciated, thank you. Kids LOVED the warm pool (spent every waking hour in it) the chalk board and giant connect 4 was a huge hit as was the BBQ used by us adults each evening. Alice and Bethany loved putting on a show every day dressed up in the princess dressed (all supplied) and we have fabulous ‘wedding footage ‘ now for when they are older! Great to know that all the baby/toddler equipment was supplied, it really helped and again it was very much appreciated - you can tell that the owner Donna is a mum as she thought of everything and more! Weather a bit of a mixed bag but that didn’t stop us having a great time and going out and enjoying the fabulous attractions and beaches. Our only completely is we should have booked another week as there really wasn’t enough time to see/do everything the lovely area had to offer. We’re just booking now 2 weeks for next year and can’t wait to get back. Thanks for an amazing holiday - highly recommended.
Owner's reply: A fabulous 5* review to kick off the 2018 season with :) Thank you so much for your wonderful and kind comments, it was an absolute pleasure to meet you all and we are very much looking forward to welcoming you back next year. Thanks again x
“Holiday at Le Pressoir”
We had a fantastic holiday with everything you could possibly think of supplied, great attention to detail and a warm and friendly welcome (flowers, a bottle of wine and a welcome note). The house is beautifully decorated and very well equipped. The pool was amazing (clean, warm, safe and a great size) and there was lots to keep the children occupied. The village was a couple of minutes walk away and has great cafe's bars and restaurants and the beautiful beach overlooking Ile de Re was only a 10 minute drive away. We enjoyed going to the street market and the children enjoyed asking for croissants and drinks at the local bakers. We're all greatly looking forward to next years return visit.
Owner's reply: Another fabulous 5* of Le Pressoir - thank you so much for posting, greatly appreciated. We loved hosting your beautiful family and are very much looking forward to welcoming you all back next September - it will be here before you know it.....! x
Easy booking process with lots of information provided. Lots of films, excellent baby equipment and toys for younger children. Secure garden, beautiful pool, the slide was a bit hit. Good size house, towels and bedding provided. Nice welcome basket provided. Excellent first impression when you walk through the door, house very clean and great attention to detail from the housekeepers. The owners kindly allowed us a late check out due to an evening flight - Overall very good holiday at Le Pressoir.”

“First class holiday!”
“ Booking process was easy and the follow up call and travel pack are excellent. The level of equipment, toys and entertainment for children is 'First Class'. The garden, play area and security is brilliant and very comforting to know the children could play outside safely. The area is brilliant and somewhere we will return to with village facilities perfect for the family. Johan at the local restaurant is brilliant and my wife is a BIG fan! This has been one of the best family holidays we have ever had. We will definitely be recommending to family and friends - roll on 2018 as we are booking again!
Owner's reply: Thanks so much for posting your fabulous 1st class review of Le Pressoir. We loved hosting you all and are very much lookimg forward to welcoming you back next year. Please do thank your gorgeous son Oliver again for the wonderful toy tractor he gave me :) see you all soon x
