Atelier Neptune is a little jewel in the beautiful La Chaume area of Les sables d'olonne!
Monica and Glenn were so helpful and welcoming, with lots of info on all the places to go and visit.
The apartment itself was compact and bijou, with all the amenities we needed and the outside space with the views across the ocean were fantastic, a great place to relax and unwind but with the hustle and bustle of Les Sab an easy walk away. Perfect and very highly recommend, we would definitely stay again. Thank you for a wonderful holiday!

Marvellous romantic location.Unbeatable ocean view; We flew in for a 4 nights / 5 days wedding anniversary break ( London-Nantes - 59£ R/T - and drove down with a rented car) - The cottage is a small place with all the confort of a big one, perfect for a cozy getaway.
Our next visit will be with our 2 teens, we will let their VILLA DOLPHINS - luxury ocean front 3 bedroons - Great hosts...Thank you Monica and Glenn for everything.

- In short, a dream place with a view and very hospitable hosts, it is real good value Do not hesitate !!! We will come back.
-The cottage is ideally located. It runs along the wild coast side of town, which is to our taste the most beautiful part, and for sure, the most quiet and not overcrowded part.
- We open the gate and hop, we are on a small beach and we can gravitate from rock to rock on the coast.
- From the terrace and the living space, we saw the ever changing views of the ocean with the tides, waves or no waves, the rocks and the most georgeous sunsets of all. The landscaped terrace is ideal, large, with all day sun exposure, with tables, chairs and 2 deckchairs.
- This was the first vacation we enjoyed coming back from an outing to spend more time at the place.
- Very romantic, très chic to take all our meals waterfront on our private terrace, and more affordable than in any restaurant .. - The house is small but well equipped. Everything is new, the equipment and the place itself.

-Otherwise, Monica and Glenn are extremely welcoming and fluent in English: telephone contacts prior to departure (which is reassuring),
During our stay, Monica thought of us and called few times to asked about whether everything went well and to give suggestions on local events.
