“Great Family Holiday”
Le Palmier is truly the perfect, ready to use, family home from home with plenty to explore nearby. Deserves a minimum of 2 weeks to appreciate it fully. Our 6, 5 and 1 year olds were so excited when we arrived and then on visiting the centre of the village, beaches, La Rochelle and going horse riding locally. We became great friends with our holiday neighbours and are going to keep in touch and meet up back in the UK. Everything was perfect, the cleanliness of the house, the kids toys, and we certainly recommend Le Palmier to other families with kids. Overall Excellent + holiday and we hope to return soon as this was exactly what we were aiming for from this holiday - Merci Beaucoup!
Owner's reply: Great to hear the kids loved all the toys laid out especially for their arrival and that everything at Le Palmier was perfect and very comfortable :) Thank you so much for posting your review of your holiday with us, and we very much hope to see you all again soon. Thanks again x
“Perfect family-oriented house with everything provided”
Le Palmier is the ideal blend of good location, great amenities, space and a relaxed family home. The fact that the owners make booking, preparing and staying there so straightforward and efficient ensures we had one of our best holidays for some time. We chose Le Palmier given the broad age range of our children from 2 to 15 and the house catered for all of us exceptionally well. The website is easy to navigate and with lots of detail including a layout which always creates confidence in choosing a place. It would help to have the exact location on a map although was not difficult to find with a little research. Making the booking was made easy mainly by Donna and her team's input. While not afraid to book entirely online, I find having personal interaction via email and phone reassuring and makes the process simpler. Instructions were simple and easy to understand. There are a range of additional cost options which we took advantage of. The additional cost for end of stay cleaning was not optional however - I would have preferred to have that incorporated in the price given it was obligatory. The house is located in walking distance of the village with a small selection of restaurants and bars etc and a very short drive to a supermarket. It's a close enough drive to the beach to be convenient and there is plenty of parking there. The village hosted a range of evening entertainment on the green through the week we stayed. The house is well maintained and was very clean. Lots of towels and bedding available and the kitchen has plenty of equipment. The feel is very comfortable and homely which made it a very relaxing environment for everyone. With the large amount of space available it took no time at all for everyone to settle in and it felt like home very quickly. Seating is comfortable and well looked after and the decor is well maintained and welcoming. The kitchen has two large fridge freezers and lots of cupboard space. All crockery, glassware and pans are in good condition, clean and plentiful. There are plenty of toys and games for the children. Keeping childrens' toys in perfect condition and complete is a tough ask so finding toys less than perfect was not surprising. However having them there saves taking them and they served very adequately for our children and they appeared clean and safe. The house has a well lit, covered eating area with large table and permanent barbeque. It leads to a small grass area with outside drier and then to the pool which is fully fenced and secure. The pool is heated and at a temperature where young children could stay in for some time. Easy to access with steps at one end and it doesn't get very deep. Pool toys are also available and there's enough space in there for all the houses to use simultaneously. We visited the O'Gliss Water Park (5 mins drive) which worked for everyone. Tip: book in advance, if you can stretch to a family plus area you have a private place to sit/rest and save hours queuing for the large rides. La Rochelle is a great place to visit. Puy Du Fou is 1.15 hrs away and impressive although expect to queue for a lot of the shows. We didn't get the full value given the age of our youngest children and not being able to queue for any length of time. In summary, we would highly recommend Le Palmier and expect to return.
Owner's reply: Thank you so much for your fabulously detailed review of Le Palmier, the area and local family attractions - some great tips there for our future guests :) It was a real pleasure to host you and your lovely family and I very much hope you will come back and visit soon. Thanks again for posting x
“Fabulous family holiday !”
Donna was extremely welcoming, friendly and super efficient during the whole process. We felt very reasured that all would be taken care of particularly as Donna was so genuinely interested in making our holiday go smoothly. The team were wonderful immediately helped when TV briefly stopped working! Loved Le Palmier as it worked perfectly for us with grand parents, plenty of space to escape each other :) Loved the village with excellent butchers for our evening BBQ's. Tom loved the bakery, village cafe, La Trattoria restaurant in the village is superb! Fab beaches nearby, Chateau adventure park was great and there is so much to do locally. Hard to think of anything you can improve on as we all had such a great time. Thank you very much for a wonderful week and see you again soon .
Owner's reply: Thank you for your wonderful 5* review of Le Palmier. Great to meet you all, especially cute little Tom :) Very much looking forward to welcoming you all back very soon. Thanks again x
“Great place for all ages”
Having children aged 6-14 all ages were cater for at Le Palmier. The layout of the house meant there was space for everyone. There was no equipment needed, absolutely everything was here! Beaches were fab, Les Conches was great for sand and waves. Angles village was just right, superb bakery. Le Palmier was exceptionally clean inside and well maintained outside. Donna was really friendly from the point of booking to our arrival. The welcome note, wine was thoughtful and we would thoroughly recommend .”
Owner's reply: Thanks so much for your wonderful 5* review, it was a pleasure to meet you all and are thrilled you all had a fabulous holiday in Le Palmier - we look forward to welcoming you all back very soon x
“Home from home”
“Lovely house a real home from home. The local village of Angles is a very short walk and has all amenities with lovely bakery for fresh pastries which we had every morning! Nearest supermarket not even 5-minute drive away. Pool lovely and clean and safely fenced and a good depth for children who are getting their water confidence. Lots of local activities with a drive of an hour or less. The hosts and the "meeters and greeters" were lovely very helpful and kind. The property was spotless. All you need is yourselves!”
Owner's reply: Thanks for posting your 5* review of your holiday with us at Le Palmier - that's so very kind, we're just thrilled you all had a wonderful home from home experience with us :) It was an absolute pleasure to meet you, the kids and your lovely mum. We very much look forward you all coming back next year. x
“Great for a family with young children”
“We have had a lovely week in Le Palmier, this it the BEST equipped place we have ever stayed in, particularly for children. Huge selection of toys was fabulous! Great to know kids are happy and safe due to the secure garden/fenced pool area. The house itself is lovely - great to have a good supply of things in the he kitchen (which is not always the case when self-catering) oils/spices/herbs etc in the kitchen cupboards and a great selection of books/DVD's in the sitting room. Very nice decor and luxury feel 'home from home' for me. We really liked having the town in walking distance and lots of things to visit nearby. Overall excellent holiday, very friendly staff, comfy beds, and property as described. Definitely recommend Le Palmier.”
Owner's reply: Thanks so much for posting you fabulous 5* review of Le Palmier. We are just thrilled you all had a wonderful week and found our home the BEST equipped holiday home you've ever stayed in. You were a pleasure to host, and will always be welcome back - hope to see you all next year.... :) x
“Perfect family holiday”
We were genuinely impressed by this Gite. We traveled with 2 young kids, and their grandparents and this catered for all. The Gite itself was clean and really well laid out, had bags of stuff for the kids and stuck the perfect balance between a relaxing place for the grown ups, and a place where the kids could let loose. We loved the welcome basket and the personal message for our kids, made them feel really special, a really nice touch. The team were really helpful and attentive, without being intrusive...not an easy balance to strike. The Gite was really well placed for us with loads to do with the kids nearby. We didn't want to spend loads of time in the car, but we visited the beach, a chateau with a dinosaur attraction, local restaurants, the marina and loads more, all within easy reach. The recommendations in the welcome pack are really good, we would certainly recommend using them. We loved the pool area and the hot tub, and our kids made friends with the family in the next Gite, which was great. I cannot recommend this place highly enough, we loved it and we would definitely go back.
Owner's reply: Thank you for this fabulous 5* review of Le Palmier - it was an absolute pleasure to host you all and we very much look forward to you all coming back to see us again. A lovely review from a lovely family :) x
“Wonderful family holiday!”
Really couldn't fault anything at Le Palmier! We have had a really lovely relaxed week. It has been really super and the wine, welcome note and flowers on arrival really was a lovely touch. The kids also loved the treasure hunt too. The house was perfectly clean, the housekeepers very friendly, the beds were really comfortable and the attention to details was excellent. The house was as described and we would definitely recommend
Owner's reply: Another fabulous 5* review for Le Palmier - yayyyy! Thank you sooooo much for choosing to holiday with us and also for posting your fabulous review. It really was a pleasure to meet you all and we very much hope to see you all again next year. x
“Perfect for families, fresh croissants, huge sandy beaches, great hosts!”
We really enjoyed our stay at La Palmier. The first thing that struck us on arrival was the massive welcome pack of food and treats with ice cold bubbles to wash it down!! Our kids (1 & 3) were wowed by the amount of toys and dressing up clothes. The hosts had hung up 4 outfits of the correct size for my daughter to wear, Cinderella, snow white, queen elsa etc, anyone with a 3 1/2 year old daughter will know how much joy that will bring. And a matching pair of shoes for each outfit! As for Harry (1 3/4) he just went crazy for the train set which had been all set up and was ready for use. We literally didn't see them for the first two hours which is almost unheard of. The house itself has got all mod cons and is finished with lots of lovely touches to make it feel like a home from home. The 'heated' pool is great, shallow area for the little ones and deeper for the adults then afterwards straight into the hot tub! They take pool safety very carefully which helped us relax, fully fenced all round. There is also a sauna. Every day one of us would take a short walk to the bakers to pick up fresh bread and croissants - fantastic. You are a short drive from lots of beaches which are all big, sandy and when we were there, almost empty which was great. Plenty of good places to eat in Angles for the family and fine dining in the surrounding villages if like us you take the grandparents to babysit. Loads of activities nearby for all ages but we spent most days trying out all the different beaches. We look forward to returning to Angles and can't thank Donna and Jay enough for being such good hosts.
Owner's reply: AMAZING comments - thank you so much for posting your wonderful review of Le Palmier. Thrilled the kids loved all the dressing up clothes and toys and you got a great break too :) You were a pleasure to host and we would definitely welcome you back with open arms. Thanks again and we very much look forward to seeing you & your lovely family again x
“Amazing Holiday Superb location and house”
“We have had the most amazing holiday at Le Palmier this September. We got exactly what we booked with lots of extra ‘wow’ moments. The property had nothing missing, if we thought of it, we found it! We visited most of the local beaches, which was the best option for our 2 year old twins as a lot of the attractions were a little bit too old for them. We would recommend a visit to La Rochelle and the aquarium. We definitely recommend Le Palmier and our twins have had the most amazing start to their holiday experience. There were more toys than they knew what to do with and they settled in the second we arrived. This property would be excellent for 2 families to share. We took my parents and there was more than enough room for us all. Donna and Jay were the best hosts and nothing was too much trouble. The village is lovely with some wonderful hidden treasure's to discover. I can personally recommend the cakes from the bakery! It will be so hard to top next year! Lovely place, lovely people, thank you thank you thank you. The best compliment I can pay is my children were so disappointed to come home they spent 2 days asking to go back!
Owner's reply: Thanks soooo much for your fabulous review of Le Palmier. We are so thrilled you all had a great time with us. It really was such a pleasure to meet you all and we very much hope you will come back next year. We have even more goodies in mind for the kids for our 2017 season...! Thanks again for posting your review and your very kind words x
