“A wonderful holiday in a wonderful house”

Reviewed 11 Aug 2019

We absolutely loved our time staying in the beach house. We were 2 families with 5 children between us ranging from 1-8 years old and it was perfect for everyone. The rooms were all clean and spacious and the beach views were simply idyllic. The beach is a 2 minute walk from the property meaning it was possible to pop home for lunch/nap time. The TV has English channels/YouTube which was great for when the children needed a bit of downtime and the cinema room downstairs was perfect on the day that we had rain. The coffee machine and self refilling ice cube drawer in the fridge are things that we have missed since coming home! It is just a few minutes walk to La Griere which has a few restaurants, a delicious bakery, pizzeria etc. Super U is 5 minutes in the car. The free bus to La Tranche is something that we took advantage of several times and leaves regularly throughout the day. James is an excellent host and replied almost immediately to any query that we had. It was very reassuring to know that he was there. The property was cleaned half way through our stay (so perfectly we were reluctant to let the children and their sandy feet back in!). The bed linen and towels were all changed which was really nice. We made some very special memories here. Our BBQs on the balcony overlooking the ocean with a glass of something cold (once the children were in bed!) won’t be forgotten in a hurry. Thank you x

Owner's reply: We are so pleased that you enjoyed your stay, thank you for being such lovely guests! We hope to see you all again in the future.

“Great house with amazing view”

Reviewed 10 Aug 2019

We were two families (four adults and five children) staying in this lovely house. It could have easily hosted another family as we had two spare bedrooms. The location near the beach was ideal and the view from the balcony was amazing. The house had all the things that you need and was well maintained and clean. The cinema room, with its selection of English language films, was great for the kids on rainy days and in the evenings. La Griere as a village has got a few decent shops and restaurants but it’s also easy to get into the bigger town of La Tranche sur Mer (either by foot, bike, car or using the free bus service). Owner was very friendly and helpful. Provided lots of information material about the house (and it’s appliances) and the surrounding area. We can’t wait to go back to this lovely part of France.

Owner's reply: Thank you so much for being such lovely guests, we’re delighted that you enjoyed your stay and hope to see you again in the future. Kind Regards, James

“Lovely easter stay - amazing beach house!”

We stayed here for 10 days over easter with a chateaux visit and vinyard visit and it was lush. This is 100% a house - not an apartment, it's not shared or anything it's a private detached h… More

Owner's reply: Thank you for your review! Yes, you're absolutely right, this property is now rented as a 100% private detached house, with both floors fully refurbished for summer 2019 and onwards. There are no shared spaces or anything like that, our guests get the whole property to themselves to enjoy their holiday. We're delighted that your family enjoyed it so much. Thank you for letting us know. We also love the woodland and forests in La Tranche, especially for picnics and dog walking - and we also agree that it's a friendly and welcoming seaside town. We've been coming to The Vendee for decades but we've never actually been to the vineyards yet - so that's one for us to try. We've added notes about the free internet, wifi, Netflix and film library details to the guest’s welcome pack so that visitors know in advance that it's available and free for them to use. We hope to see you again soon.

“Lovely holiday - with sea views to die for ! Already booked for our next holiday...”

Reviewed 25 Jun 2019

We had a fabulous early June holiday in this big family house which has just had a major refit. So much space for our extended family ! 3 bedrooms and 2 bathrooms upstairs and 3 bedrooms and 2 bathrooms downstairs. With a big kitchen dining room that faces the beach. There are two living rooms which was great for the teenagers when they wanted some space. One has TV with home cinema and a library of films we could access which was great for our kids at bedtime. The beach here is beautiful and the views from the house are incredible - I've never stayed anywhere like this before. Very well equipped and lovely shops and restaurants nearby. We have re-booked already and would highly recommend a holiday here.

Owner's reply: Thank you for your very positive review and of course for your re-booking We're really pleased to see that guests like the new bigger property and I'm glad that the layout works well for multi-generation families. We'd like to wish you a wonderful summer. Kind regards James
