“Wonderful house, equipped with everything you could want!”
We had a fantastic holiday at La Mirabelle in September. Starting with the booking process, that was all great, Donna, the owner, was really responsive about answering questions. The pre-arrival call was really helpful as Donna went through loads of questions to make sure we'd have everything we'd need for our children, and would be able to get food when we arrived - being a Sunday, not much was due to be open. We had originally booked another property with a shared pool and were delighted when Donna offered us a complimentary upgrade to La Mirabelle with its private pool and extra space. It was fab to be greeted by a bottle of wine, card and flowers - a really nice touch! We also appreciated things like baby bubble bath and the way Donna and her team had laid out all the baby equipment. You really don't need to bring anything with you for children - it's all provided. We had a lovely week, the house is fab, so spacious and well though out. The open plan kitchen/dining room/sitting room was a great space and the kitchen was really well equipped and meant my husband could create nice dinners every night. It was lovely to have so many DVDs, books etc - gave it a really homely feel. The other family who stayed with us enjoyed some of the Disney DVDs with their little one...sadly my little boy won't sit still for five minutes! The pool and hot tub were great - we didn't get to use them as much as we would have liked as the weather was a bit cold, but the pool itself was warm so my little one enjoyed going in with his Dad a few times! The kids had great fun in the playroom - what an amazing den. They loved the ballpit, little table and chairs, Mr Potato Heads, dolls' house in particular! It was great that we were able to book babysitting (and we wish we'd done it more!) - meant we could have best of both worlds and be with the kids during the day and have some time to chill on those evenings. We also received a complimentary mid week clean, that was a great help. I'm not sure this does it justice, but we really did have a great time and enjoyed being in such a comfortable, well-located house. We had a lovely week, as many have said previously the only problem is it wasn't long enough!! Hopefully we'll be back at some point!
Owner's reply: It was our absolute pleasure to host you all and thank you so much for this AMAZING 5* review of La Mirabelle. We are thrilled you all had such a great time and enjoyed all the facilities. Weeks for 2018 are selling quickly, so do book soon :) Thanks again and best wishes x
“Great house, garden and pool for children.”
We had a great holiday at La Mirabelle and appreciate all the thought that has gone in to the planning of the holiday and the customer service throughout. Our grandchildren aged from 4 months to 4 years loved their Magic Kingdom as the Loft was christened! They also loved being in the garden and as it was so safe, the adults were able to relax with a glass of wine! The pool was fenced so was very safe which was a big consideration for us. It was everything we wanted it to be and would certainly recommend a stay there. We are telling lots of people how great the house was and what a lovely time we had. Thank you Donna and Jay for all the unexpected little extras, when we start planning the next family holiday you will be very much in our thoughts.
Owner's reply: Thank you so much for posting your fabulous 5* review of your holiday at La Mirabelle. Thank you also for recommending us to your family/friends - we very much look forward to welcoming you all back very soon. x
The information received prior to arrival was great. Attention to detail for the kids was brilliant especially for the little ones and the house was perfectly clean upon arrival . Safety of the pool was paramount and great to have the good sized garden as well. We had a fantastic week and will always come back to one of your houses as we never need to bring anything except clothes! Thanks for a lovely stay
Owner's reply: Thank you for your fabulous 5* review of La Mirabelle, it really was a pleasure to host you a couple of weeks ago. We very much look forward to welcoming you (and your clothes!) back....! :) Take care and thanks again x
The booking process was very accurate, efficient and the personal call we received from the owner before our arrival was very well received. The childrens toys supplied were very good, lots to do and a good selection. The kids loved the ball pit! The outside area was excellent, the kids loved playing hide and seek in the garden and playing in the sand. La Mirabelle is a good size, with a great open-plan layout. The village of Angles was excellent with good village activities. Longeville beaches were perfect for our needs. Please continue with all the personal touches - they were greatly appreciated.
Owner's reply: Thanks so much for your fabulous 5* review of La Mirabelle - it was a pleasure to meet you all and we very much look forward to seeing you again in 2018 :) Thank you again for taking the time to post your review - we always appreciate such wonderful feedback x
“Perfect if you have young children”
We booked La Mirabelle for our honeymoon - Donna and her team made our arrival really special with toys laid out for our children and a lovely drink for the grown ups! It set the tone for a lovely holiday. The house itself is brilliant for just having lazy days without going anywhere - our children are aged between 1 and 4 and they were delighted to stay home and enjoy the pool (which was fenced off meaning they could enjoy the rest of the garden without endless supervision) and the very many toys. There was an extensive collection of childrens dvds also, but we didnt really get round to them! There is a supermarket just a few minutes away so catering for ourselves was really easy, though we did dine out a few times at some wonderful restaurants (Donna's babysitting service is brilliant!). There was also some great attractions near by - we enjoyed the zoo, trips to the local beaches, an adventure playground and the local chateaux which was a great day out. Thoroughly recommend - the whole family loved this house!
Owner's reply: It was an absolute pleasure to host you for your honeymoon :) Equally it was an absolute please to look after your lovely kids. Thank you for taking the time to post your 5* review of La Mirabelle, we very much hope you will be celebrating your 1st wedding anniversary with us too....? Take care and keep in touch x
Booking was quick and easy and the house surpassed our expectations. Our daughters were beyond excited when they noticed the play loft which was renamed the 'bouncy room' It didn't take long for the girls to notice the outside play area which they loved. As a parent being able to allow your children to play outside without constant supervision and fear of them jumping into the pool is fantastic and made for lovely relaxing holiday at La Mirabelle. Excellent welcome, and personal touches. Great team with very friendly staff and excellent attention to detail. Brilliant holiday, please don't change a thing - it's all great.
Owner's reply: Ah thank you soooo much for this fabulous review of La Mirabelle. We are just thrilled the girls loved the play-room (bouncy room!), dressing up clothes and all the toys indoors and out. Happy kids = happy parents hey....!!! :) Very much look forward to welcoming you all back. Take care and thanks again for posting - greatly appreciated. x
“Vacances de Paques”
Nous avons passé une semaine fantastique. Le soleil était au rendez-vous. Nous avons profité de belles balades. La Mirabelle est un lieu vraiment agréable pour se détendre et se reposer. Les enfants ont apprécié les jeux et le jardin. Un grand merci à Donna pour son accueil chaleureux. A recommander les yeux fermés.
Owner's reply: Thanks so much for recommending us to your family/friends, we are absolutely delighted that you all had a wonderful holiday at La Mirabelle. We very much hope you will all return again soon. Best wishes and thanks again x
“Phenomenal place to satisfy the preferences of all family members”
As you drive up to La Mirabelle, you wonder what you will find as all you see is a nondescript wall with a nice sign in a small village in Western France. Once you enter the property, your life will change. This house has everything-- video games, videos, sand-based play area, heated pool, jacuzzi, nice bedrooms, a large kitchen-- and I am sure I am forgetting something. Donna (the owner) prepared a fabulous welcome dinner and provided a range of recommendations. We had anticipated a few of the sights-- La Rochelle, Les Sables d'Olonne-- but Donna told us about Puy de Fou, which is a cross between Disneyland and an outdoor zoo all set in various versions of medieval and renaissance France. We have vacationed all over the world and can honestly say this location plus the home is at the top of our list. We will be coming back often as the hospitality is unmatched and there is so much to do.
Owner's reply: Absolutely thrilled with this fabulous 5* review of La Mirabelle. Thank you sooo much for taking the time to post about your phenomenal experience with us and the local attractions. We very much look forward to welcoming you all back very soon - you guys will always be welcome in our home... x
“One of our best vacations ever!!!”
We’ll be coming back to La Mirabelle; it was one of our best vacations ever! Our family vacations tend to be hectic, but staying at La Mirabelle shifted things to a lot more fun and relaxing with a lot less hectic. Everything we might ask for was already there, so we were enjoying real holiday time from the moment we arrived. The place is great, but the staff is exceptional. More than just keeping the place clean and well-equipped, there’s an extra measure of thoughtfulness. At some places, we’re just generic guests and the service is factory-style, the same for everyone. It was the opposite here. From getting to know and understanding our individual family’s needs and interests to supplying beach toys and the like, they were working day and night to be sure we could spend our time enjoying the accommodations and the area—great memories we’ll treasure!
Owner's reply: Thank you so much for this fabulous review of La Mirabelle. We are just thrilled that you all had your 'best vacation ever' at our holiday home. Thanks so much for the feedback on our dedicated team too, they are all equally thrilled you all had a fabulous time with us. Very much look forward to welcoming you back in 2017 - not long to go now! :) Thanks again x
“Even Better Than The Photos”
The beach at La Tranche sur Mer was perfect for the boys aged 17 months to 6 ½ yrs. Flat, sandy with rock pools at low tide and a minimum of waves. There is a sailing and wind surf school at one side of the beach which is fun to watch. There is a large car park (cards only!!!) but avoid weekends in the middle of the day. The ice cream parlour in La Tranche is fantastic - actually it is a very pleasant little town. Angles supermarket had all we needed and the bakers next to it was very good. The markets in the village of Angles (2 minutes drive) on a Sunday and Wednesday had lovely fresh produce and a vibrant air. The Adventure Park and Château at Avrille kept the boys (3 & 6 ½ years old) absorbed for a whole day and was a very French experience. The villa had been perfectly prepared for the children with toys in the bedrooms and a baby swing seat replacing the double swing seat shown in the pictures. The amount of children’s toys and play equipment supplied at La Mirabelle was excellent as was the cleanliness of the house and the friendliness of the staff. With the drive gate shut the villa is totally secure for children. The children enjoyed the balloon model making. The pool was excellent: warm and very big for one villa. The child proof fence and gate worked well. Knowing we had a ‘hot line’ (internal phone with programmed to the maintenance staff) was very reassuring. Having two dish washers was a big plus. Despite sleeping in the front bedroom I heard no traffic. We did have a walk around the local village - St Benoist (no longer) sur Mer. It has an old church and a post box in the square then down by the river is canoe hire. There is nothing else to the village. Three of our family had an early flight from Birmingham to La Rochelle. This worked well for them as we had booked the 2pm check in and there was no need for them to bring toys etc. because we knew they were provided. If you are driving please note that the French roads are very busy on August Saturdays - it doubles the expected journey time. We hope to all come back in two years when there will be an extra toddler in the family.
Owner's reply: Another fabulous 5* review for La Mirabelle. What an amazing year we have had again, so thank you to this guest and to all our guests who have visited this year and awarded us a consistent 5* for the product and service they have received. It's been an absolute pleasure to meet you all and here's to many many more happy guests in 2017....! :) Donna & Jay x
