Our holiday in Jaumont was absolutely excellent. The villa was really clean, comfortable, well equipped and in lovely well maintained gardens. The shower is very good and the patio area lovely. We spent our days at the beach - the coast is amazingly good for swimming and surfing and the villa is very well located for this and for all necessary amenities. I wish we had discovered the centre of Angles earlier as it is a lovely place for the bakery and a meal out - all in walking distance and delightful.

Philiipa and Peter could not have been more welcoming, friendly and helpful at all stages in the process. Peter's map drawing is legendary! We would certainly recommend this villa to other families or couples who enjoy self catering and exploring France. I would love to return.

The money discounted for the ferry for booking early was appreciated and an incentive to travel this way.

We had a wonderful week. The weather was great.
The property was clean and well maintained and had everything we needed.
The owners Peter and Phillipa were very helpful and friendly.
The only thing that we felt was a shame was that the pool was only open till 7pm, we all would've liked to be able to swim until a bit later.

Owner response

Clair makes a reasonable point. We are expected to observe local by-laws about noise and not upsetting neighbours in the evening,(it can get noisy around the pool), but will endeavour to seek a better understanding of the problem with future guests, and see if we can't work something out. This should certainly be possible when - as in the case of Claire - her children were that much older and more understanding.

Very good base for a holiday. Property and pool very clean. We would return. If booking be aware that an additional 40 euro charge is applied for cleaning, alongside a request to leave the property as clean and tidy as when you arrived! Hosts very helpful re use of pool facilities etc and happy to recommend and book table at good restaurant.
Overall, a good property, in a good location, run by efficient hosts.

Owner response

The 40€ cleaning charge should surprise no one. It is detailed in the terms and conditions on our website, and on page 1 of the holiday booking form. We would never wish to deceive anyone.
There is no request anywhere - either written or verbal - to leave the property as clean and tidy as when you arrived. We do not know why this comment was made. Please note that the property is cleaned by professionals prior to every changeover. THIS TAKES A MINIMUM OF 4 HOURS!

Good points
The location for the gite is excellent, both for the immediate locality, being near enough to the village of Angles to access on foot, yet far enough away to feel private and quiet and also the attractions of the surrounding area. Excellent beaches are less than 15 minutes away and the is easy access to the Marais Poitevin (marshes) on which you can rent canoes and boats. The pool is lovel, private and very clean. The gite was absolutely spotless on arrival, with useful cleaning products provided that often aren't in other gites, meaning you spend extra money on basics just to maintain standards you would at home. The owners are very helpful should need to ask anything, but, despite living on site, are unobtrusive and very respectful of your privacy.

Bad points
Only thing I can think of is there's no dishwasher, but, it's good to do a little light excercise after all the cheese and bread and it makes you appreciate yours all the more when you get home.
