Had a lovely stay here in the summer. The information supplied beforehand was fantastic. The property was clean and very well equipped and ideally located within walking distance to the town, harbour, shops and beaches. A great base to explore from if you want to get out, or everything on your doorstep if you don't!

Great accommodation situated only a short walk from the town centre. Accommodation was immaculate when we arrived and had everything you'd need for a small family. The place itself was beautiful with everything from sandy beaches, great places to eat and things to do/see when the weather wasn't so good - managed to keep 2 four year olds and an 8 year old happy for the week! Totally recommend this property and the area as a whole, so much so will be coming back next year for more.....

Stayed here in August, very well equipped and comfortable property, close to the town and beaches, and has everything you would need for a great holiday. Lovely alfresco dining, very private yet close to everything perfect

Had a great time at this amazing villa. Within walking distance of the town and a real sun trap. Martin could not have been more helpful and the villa had more than you would every expect, a real home from home. We will be back!

Great accommodation in a lovely seaside town. Excellent situation; very clean; really good resources/equipment in the house; nice size for a family of 4-6; private garden area. The owners are really helpful and provide fantastic information. We would definitely return here.

This comfortable property has everything you could possibly want for a relaxing holiday. It is situated in a very good spot for the beach, shops and restaurants. Everything was spotlessly clean and in good working order. The owners have carefully considered what is needed in a holiday let and then provided it.

A lovely villa, very central to this lovely seaside area. The house had everything we needed to make our holiday easy and comfortable, plus we had the garage to store our bikes in. The house is next to a small gravel car park mainly used on market day (Monday) and also used by the local boule club, but is very quiet and fun to watch them play. We have been to Jard Sur Mer six times so know the area well. This villa is close to the small town shopping street, with its interesting shops bakeries and cafes, ten minutes’ walk from the beach and fifteen to the marina. There is lots to do in the area to suit everyone's taste. We are already booked up to return next year.

We stayed here this year and had a LOVELY holiday with Henry (14months), Grandma and Grandad. Would certainly recommend it to a family (or others!) looking for a well-maintained and perfectly catered-for property. Martin (owner) was extremely helpful with advice and constant information when we required it and helped us to feel that the house would be the perfect place for our 2-week break - he wasn't wrong! Local and not-so-local area is lovely with great beaches (best one is La Mine which is cyclable) and interesting markets. Town is a stone’s throw and cycling is easy due to relative flatness of area. Enjoy!

An exceptionally well-equipped property ideally located to local shops and the beach. Most suitable location for; cycling (5 different circuits plus a cycle path by the coast accessed from the Rue Jean Moulin), swimming, with a safe lifeguard attended beach which also caters for sailing and surfing. The property has safe storage for the car and all sporting equipment in an independent locked garage and gated forecourt. No difficulty in recommending this very clean and tidy holiday rental for use by young families to older families interesting in outdoor activities, or indeed groups of individuals. There are also evening entertainment events at the port suitable for all ages. Tom London.

This property offers excellent accommodation in this lovely French seaside town. The house is close to local shops in the town centre and a short walk from the port and beach. A large supermarket is a short drive away. The house contains everything necessary to enjoy a self-catering holiday. There is a walled garden at the back and a secure driveway at the front. The garden is south facing and enjoys the sun from morning until evening. Jard Sur Mer is an ideal location for a family holiday and the house comes with a travelling cot and high chair. Jard has good access to Les Sables, Lucon and the vineyards at Rosnay. La Rochelle is about one hours drive away and well worth a visit. Jard itself is well supplied with restaurants and is very family friendly. The town often arranges entertainment at the Port on summer evenings. I have visited Jard a number of times over the last 20 years and the town has retained its charm throughout that time. I would highly recommend this property that allows one to enjoy fully a visit to the sunny beaches of the Vendee.

We had such a beautiful relaxing week in this very pretty seaside town. Group of four young professionals who wanted a relaxing break away and this was just perfect! The house was an excellent standard with everything you would need and more provided. The house is located in easy proximity to the beach and is also a great base for discovering the beautiful Vendée region. Most definitely hope to return!

The property was immaculately clean and the best equipped holiday home that we have rented in the twenty years of travelling to the Vendee. It has easy access to town and country and close to every type of beach you would need.

About the Owner/Advertiser, Mr Martin McCloskey

We built our three bedroom modern villa right in the centre of the small resort of Jard Sur Mer 13 years ago and have recently completed a full refurbishment of the property. The small resort of Jard Sur Mer is idyllic with its miles of beaches, bars restaurants and a leisure port all within easy walking distance. As soon as we saw Jard, we knew it was the perfect place to build our idyllic holiday home as everything you need for great holidays are within walking distance.

Year property purchased 2006
Why this location? Everything you need is within walking distance. Jard Sur Mer has beautiful, fine sandy beaches and there is always something to do and see down at the leisure port with its restaurants, bars and local entertainment in the summer season. A walk in the pine forests or along the coastal path are great ways to relax. The "Cote de Lumiere" or "Coast of Light" as the area is known provides a brilliance of sun and contrast in this pollution free environment so loved by artists and those who live in France's busy towns and cities.
People love to come and stay here on holiday to soak up the sunshine and hate to leave this idyllic place.
Unique benefits of property A modern clean recently refurbished villa situated in a quiet location but just five minutes walk from the centre of Jard-sur-Mer. The villa has three bedrooms, a well-equipped, full size kitchen and lounge equipped with two John Lewis sofa beds. A small fully enclosed private garden with barbecue and rear sun terrace. The front garden provides shelter from the sun on very warm afternoons and there is a private gated driveway for off-road parking.
Everything that is needed for a seaside sunshine holiday is provided in the property, with many lovely places to visit within easy travelling distance so the whole area can be explored at leisure.
