Villa Vendee is absolutely lovely. There is nothing that we missed or needed when we were there. In fact the kitchen was better equipped than mine at home. The outside space is great - when the kids weren't in the pool they were playing cricket or hide and seek around the grounds. The weather was definitely mixed and so we also utilised the board games that were left in the villa when the sun went in. The rest of the time we were outside by the pool or exploring - the kids especially loved the baguette vending machine in the village. To really appreciate the area, you definitely need longer than a week. There's so many places we didn't get to see.
Lovely villa, would definitely recommend and hope to come back some time in the future.
We had a brilliant holiday staying at this property. The villa has everything you could need. It's very well equipped, spacious, comfortable and clean! There was a temporary pool cover in place for our 2 weeks which was a little awkward to contend with but it had been communicated to me that the original was damaged in a storm and they were waiting for a replacement. I think it came the day we left! The weather was beautiful throughout our stay so the lovely pool area got well used! As did the table tennis table out the back.The caretaker was readily available and really friendly.Although the villa is located in a small village with no shops or boulangerie there were plenty within easy reach. We had lovely days out visiting Nantes and La Rochelle.Locally Fontenay-le-Comte had a lovely Creperie and pretty good shops. Vouvant also worth visiting. Overall this was my favourite French holiday to date and I would happily recommend Villa Vendee for a great holiday. Fabulous scenery and beautiful sunflower fields around too! I would recommend!
