Location description from owner

The Pays de la Loire region

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

During July and August, 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.

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

Due to the great location of all three of our gites, they can either be rented separately or together for families holidaying together or for family celebrations. Please see details of all our properties on our web-site

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.

Indian Forest Adventure (5 minutes away by car)
This great theme park has marked trails in a forest, as well as 122 different challenges. Suspended on safety harnesses, you are able to climb, swing, dismount and even slide across the forest at a height of 20ft above the ground. There is also an adventure area for toddlers, with themed bouncy castles, a ball park, rock climbing and an inflatable park. This is an excellent day out for both children and adults and is just 5 minutes from our gîtes.

Sporting activities on the beach (10 minutes away by car)
The beach at La-Tranche-sur-Mer has a 6-hectare area of water for water sports. The "Cercle Nautique Tranchais" (CNT) offers sailing, windsurfing, kite-surfing and sand-sailing. The area is also superb for boating and surfing enthusiasts

Adventure Park & Chateau (15 minutes away by car)
Experience the ‘historic adventure' in the setting of the grounds of the 'Chateau ee La Guignardiere'. Visit four continents of the world and solve the various puzzles as you go round. Get all the answers correct at the end the children get to open the treasure chest which holds a special reward for them. The park is set in 86 hectares of ancient trees, rows of menhires and wonderful animals such as deer, horses, ponies, swans and geese.

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. French golf courses are of an exceptionally high standard, are competitive and are well managed. We have 5 courses within easy reach!

Aquarium La Rochelle (1hr away by car)
This is a 2 hour journey into the depth of the ocean - The kids will just loved it. There are over 10,000 Atlantic, Mediterranean and Tropical species to view in an amazing 3 million litres of water. The huge shark aquarium with 20 different species was amazing if not a little frightening . An excellent day out, probably one of the best aquariums you will ever visit.

Dunes Adventure Park (1hr away by car)
With over 38 different activities for the children to play on, the kids are bound to find a favourite! The kids will thoroughly enjoyed everything on offer especially the water slides, trampolines (fully enclosed) and toboggan rides. A very safe, clean and friendly environment and lots of under cover shaded picnic area.

Puy du Fou (1hr 30mins away by car)
This is where time stands still - and will be an instant hit with children and adults alike. You'll see villages from different eras, gladiators still doing battle and Vikings launching attacks on fortified castles! In the summer, there are 28 evening/night shows with 300 fireworks per show, 2000 digitally-controlled projectors, 1500 computerised fountains, 4500 costumes and many more special effects. There are minstrels in the heart of the woods and master falconers in the meadows. You must book in advance for the evening show.

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. The cycle cars are designed for either 4 or 5 people each and run along an amazing 10km stretch of former railway line (of course you don't have to do it all!)

Oceanile water park (2hrs away by car)
At the heat of Norimoutier this wonderful water park offers plenty of laughter for the entire family. Crystal- clear water heated to 28 degrees, giant toboggans, rubber rings (single and doubles), huge wave-filled swimming pool and cascading waterfalls await you. Great fun!

Fishing on the rivers (5 minutes away by car)
You can enjoy two types of fishing - On the freshwater rivers upstream from the lock gates at Moricq, you can try for pike, perch, carp, bream and other bleak. You will need a licence which can be purchased at the villages Office du Tourism.

“Perfect for families, fresh croissants, huge sandy beaches, great hosts!”

Reviewed 2 Nov 2016

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.

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”

Reviewed 13 Oct 2016

“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!

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

“Lovely family holiday”

Reviewed 7 Sep 2016

“The process from initial enquiry to arrival was outstanding and any request we made (and we made a few!) was handled perfectly. The property itself is of a good size and made for easy living style for the eight people in our group. There is a great range of actives nearby and its lovely to have the pool at the property. The amount of play equipment and entertainment for all ages is also outstanding. The outside space wasn’t as large as we had thought, but it’s well set out with a great range of facilities. The property is designed and marketed perfect for families with children so it was right up our street. We had a great holiday at Le Palmier – thank you”

Thanks so much for rating the play equipment and toys supplied at Le Palmier as 'outstanding' - that's always so wonderful to hear as we certainly do try our best to make sure each of our holiday homes have plenty to keep the kids entertained....!! As parents ourselves, we know "happy kids = happy parents" :) It was a pleasure to meet your family and I very much hope you will come back and visit us again soon. Thanks again for posting your review, it's greatly appreciated. x

“Amazing holiday for everyone!”

Reviewed 3 Sep 2016

We've stayed at Le Palmier for two years now, and we couldn't recommend it highly enough! There were 4 children under five in our party (!) and the facilities are excellent. Extremely friendly owners too, who help make sure that everything is going to plan. Everyone had an amazing time.

Thanks for your wonderful review. We are delighted you all had an amazing time again at Le Palmier and will be highly recommending us :) It was our pleasure to welcome you all back this year, and we very much look forward to welcoming you back in 2017. Take care and see you all again soon x

“Nice place shame about the weather”

Reviewed 26 Jun 2016

We had an enjoyable week here, nice quiet place and would recommend this place to our friends. The weather was not as hot as hoped, and this did lead to a few initial teething issues; 1 man hot tub was not hot and the swimming pool did not seem as warm as advertised. Due to the cooler temperature - it was harder to dry towels/linen but the staff were helpful and able to dry our things for us which was appreciated. Maybe an in-house dryer would be beneficial for these times of the year? There seemed plenty to do in the region and overall we had a really good week - it certainly helped having lots of toys/DVD's with settling the kids. We are not sure that the beach was only 8 minutes away

Sadly, no we have no control over the weather of course but do understand that this will have dampened your spirits and ultimately your review. We are thrilled you had a really good and enjoyable week at Le Palmier and thanks so much for recommending us to your friends – that’s a fabulous endorsement in itself. x
