Location description from owner

The Pays de la Loire region

Le Mimosa is under a minutes walk from the lovely village of Angles which has a large street market on Wednesday and Sunday mornings (in peak season)- an excellent opportunity to sample much of the locally produced food, including cheese, meat, fish and wine.

Located so close to the village of Angles, you can either take a leisurely stroll in the morning to pick up your fresh baguette and croissants with the kids or in the evenings visit a choice of 5 great restaurants. You will also find a comprehensive folder in the gîte listing restaurants, activities and local events, as well as plenty of ideas for entertaining the children. There is a huge write up of over 20 local restaurants that we recommend and if you want some 'adult time' we can also supply the baby-sitting too!

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.

Angles 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.

Whether you're an experienced cyclist or a leisure rider, this area has plenty of surprises in store for you. Along the 'Loire a Velo' signposted bike trial, you can marvel at the stunning Loire countryside, visit Châteaux & Abbeys, stroll through quaint little towns & cycle through vineyards for over 110 miles!

The Val de Loire Vineyards Tourist Trail - 40,000 hectares of 'dégustation' - The skills of the vine were introduced by the Romans, and are now one of the main assets of the Pays de la Loire. Sweet, dry, sparkling, white, red or rosé – every one of you will find just what you're looking for among our prestigious AOC wines. Saumur Brut, Savennières, Coteaux du Layon, Saumur-Champigny, Anjou villages, Muscadet, Jasnières, Mareuil wines... From the Nantes area to Montsoreau, the Val de Loire Vineyards Tourist Trail extends you a warm welcome!

Due to the strict levels of drinking and driving laws in France we offer a taxi service to and from attractions/beaches and local restaurants - Please contact us for details.

Blue Flag Sandy Beaches (10 minutes away by car)
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. They are approved as a "Kids' Station", which means that the resort is a safe environment for children to play in. 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

The park is set in 86 hectares of ancient trees, rows of menhires and wonderful animals such as deer, horses, ponies, swans and geese. www.chateau-aventuriers.com

Excellent golf courses (30 minutes away by car)
France is one of Europe's most popular golfing holiday destinations. It has over 25 of the Top 100 golf courses in Europe - and many golfers are now choosing to play in France rather than the traditional Spanish golf resorts.

An excellent day out, probably one of the best aquariums you will ever visit. www.aquarium-larochelle.com/index.php?id_site=2

Cycle rail on tracks (1hr 30 away by car)
This is a great chance for the entire family to have some quality time together taking in the beautiful countryside, and wildlife whilst enjoying a picnic.

Oceanile water park (2hrs away by car)

“Another fantastic stay at Le Mimosa”

Reviewed 8 Aug 2012

Having stayed for a fantastic week at Le Mimosa in May 2011 we decided to return again this year- my wife and 2 children, my sister, her husband and 2 children and my parents. We were a party of 6 adults and 4 children aged from 18 months to 7 years old and Le Mimosa again proved to be an excellent choice. The accommodation is very spacious. Three bedrooms and a bathroom are at one end of the villa and 2 bedrooms and a bathroom at the other which proved to be very practical for our party. My wife and I and 2 young children were well away from the rest of the party with our own bathroom so when our kids woke at 7, we weren't worrying about disturbing the others. The gite caters brilliantly for children meaning we could minimise the amount of kit we took with us. High chairs, cots and change mat were all provided and a fantastic range of toys and games meant we hardly took any of the children's gear with us apart from things for the journey making it all so easy. We opted to have the cleaning team attend twice during our stay and it really made a huge difference. The outside space was also excellent and safe. There's a private, fenced pool, lovely terrace with lots of seating and sunbeds, a large BBQ and spacious garden for kicking a ball about and a great children's play swing and slide. The garden is secluded and secure on all sides and the pool is fenced-in so we were happy our roving 2 year old was safe. The location is also fantastic- just outside the centre of the village of Angles so we were able to walk into the village regularly. The route is paved all the way so it's easy to walk with the buggy. The village has a great butchers, mini supermarket, at least 2 bakeries and a few bars and restaurants. My wife and I had a lovely meal at La Cambuse one evening. There are a range of beaches 10-15 minutes drive away. We loved La Tranche-sur-Mer and La Terriere- the latter being wilder but both had good lunch options and the beaches were spacious and clean and great for kids of all ages. We would strongly recommend this gite for the perfect family holiday.

“Excellent house for families”

Reviewed 26 Jul 2012

We stayed at the Le Mimosa in early July 2012 with family and friends and having been to the region twice before, chose the area for ease of access to the beaches and the facilities that the house was offering. The house was better than expected with everything needed to make you feel at home straight away after the journey. A small problem with no hot water on one side of the house was quickly sorted with a phone call but after that everything was great. Safe pool and garden and excellent for outside living. Very good market in town twice a week and a 2 minute walk into the centre to get early morning croissants and a coffee! Beaches are around 10mins drive away. Would strongly recommend this house and would book again if we had the size of family coming with us.

“Great house, very child- friendly, great location!”

Reviewed 21 Jan 2012

We stayed in La Mimosa last summer with our children and grandchildren and had a fabulous holiday! The house was lovely- very well equipped and very spacious, even with 10 of us in the group. Having such a big, enclosed garden, plus the private pool was fantastic for our grandchildren. They also loved all of the toys and dressing up clothes! It was lovely that we could walk into the heart of he village with the children, to pop to the boulangerie –and stroll out ourselves in the evening for an aperitif or dinner! The perfect holiday!
