It is only a 10 minute drive to the bustling cathedral town of Luçon where you will find many shops, supermarkets and restaurants.

Very Good

“[--]Amazing, amazing, amazing[--]; Sarah (age 12)”

Reviewed 2 Sep 2012

This is an exceptionally well presented cottage, and if you do find you need something which is not provided, then the owners will do their best to get it for you. The pool and games room are invaluable, and provide even more space for children (of all ages!). There are a good variety of attractions within easy reach, including beaches, chateaux and historic towns, and with this being a less well known part of the Vendee, the roads are rarely busy. Highly recommended.

“Wonderfully relaxing”

Reviewed 29 Aug 2011

Everything about L'Ecurie was great! The location was easy to find, the cottage was exactly as we expected - well! Even better really. Everything that you could have wished for was thought about and catered for.Good quality too :-) Annette and Jason were so accommodating, knowledgable and helpful - even babysat one night and provided us with a taxi! The pool is immense and great for all ages; the games room is so well equipped with a proper size table tennis table, and so many games, toys, books and DVDs to use, we even borrowed beach stuff for our (occasional) trips out. Even with the occasional rain we were never bored. The bbq and patio area are so well situated, either to keep an eye on small people in the pool or for watching the sunset. The cottage itself is very spacious and so are the grounds. We were impressed by the local bread/cake lady who delivers most days. La Tranche is a lovely beach, not just for boarding and a good selection of restaurants. Lots of local markets, supermarkets and good general local facilities as well - including the A+E! Lovely relaxed feel about the place so definitely recommend :-)
