"Dolphin Cottage" is a little hidden gem right on the edge of the sea - we enjoyed the sound of waves and seabirds all day long. Very well equipped and comfortable and spotless. Charming friendly and very helpful owners close by. We had several delicious meals in Les Sables overlooking the estuary which is a buzzing harbour full of international boats and people. Highly recommended.

Owner response

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!
