Diane & Stuart bought Villa Moricq in 2015 as they loved the location and ease of transport to and from the UK. They visited the area for holidays a few years ago when their children were younger, and now that they have grandchildren, they decided to buy a good-sized holiday home that all of the family can use.<br/><br/>They loved the pool and flat lawned garden - great for letting the grand kids run around in. They also like that the villa is located on the edge of a small village.
|Year property purchased||2015|
|Why this location?||The nearby town of Angles has lots of little shops and restaurants, and holds a large street market every week during the summer - there's always something going on.
If you prefer a quieter holiday away from it all, then there are lots of lovely country walks and cycle paths nearby where you will see lots of local wildlife - herons, cranes, coypu and swans.
|Unique benefits of property||The Villa has everything that you would need for a relaxing family holiday! The children are catered for with a heated private pool and large garden, and the adults have plenty of space to relax and enjoy a glass or two of the local wines.|
In 2016 a new Water Park opened in Moutiers les Mauxfaits - only a 10 minute drive from Villa Moricq. It makes a great day out - with lots of different water slides, rivers to float along in giant inflatable doughnuts, a beach to relax besides and a fun area for younger children, with a pirate area and small slides. Open from June until September each year. Book in advance to avoid missing out!
Situated in the heart of a forest, only 15 minutes from Villa Moricq, the Indian Forest Adventure Park will bring out your adventurous side! If climbing trees is your thing - there are 17 trails for all levels of experience with rope bridges, Tarzan rope swings, zip lines and lots more - even flying over a lake!
There is also a set of water slides with 19 slopes and 11 ramps using skis, snowboards, BMX, buoy/tube or bodysurfing to descend.
For younger children, there are bouncy castles, small slides, puzzles, pony rides and crazy golf.
Not forgetting the karting track, sumo wrestling, bungy jumping, and giant inflatable balls! Book in advance to avoid the queues and save money.
This world famous Park is only an hour away from Villa Moricq and is an essential visit for anyone coming to The Vendée!
It is not a theme park in the traditional sense - it's so much more! You will be transported back in time to the age of the Vikings, Gladiators, Musketeers, Medieval Knights or Napoleonic Sailors. See their villages and shops, watch the great shows and then eat in one of the themed restaurants! Not to miss the best bird show in the World - Bal de Oiseaux Fantomes - see owls, eagles, vultures, cranes and so many more - very close up in this amazing show.
In the evening there is a choice of two main shows - one set around a lake with classical music, dancing on the water and fireworks, and the other Cinescenie Show, with over 1200 participants (people and animals!) in a lake and chateau setting - you will be totally amazed! Not to be missed.
The Southern vendee has miles of lovely long sandy beaches. The closest to Villa Moricq - Les Conches - is great for surfing and body boarding and has big waves! Further along the coast there are great beaches for rock pooling - Jard and St Vincent; La Tranche sur Mer and La Faute sur Mer have lots of summer entertainment laid on, plus lovely beaches! You'll be spoilt for choice for beaches!
The description was more than accurate the photos don't do it justice,
We were thrilled with this stunning villa which was perfect for our 4 month old and 9 year old sons, the villa catered for everyone, it was clean, tidy and spacious it was wonderfully equipped with everything we needed.
The pool and outside area was the main attraction for all of us.
Villa Moricq is close by to the main supermarket and sandwich shop at the end of the road but the beach at Tranche-Sur-Mer is the closest town and is a 10 minute drive away but we still enjoyed a trip there everyday visiting shops and eateries, although we we're disappointed that many of the restaurants don't serve evening meals until 7pm.
We would definitely use this Villa again we were more than happy with what Villa moricq had to offer. The customer service and the communication with the owner was fast and efficient
We had a wonderful week here we wish we could have stayed much longer
Fantastic clean and well maintained villa with all the facilities you could wish for. About 5 mins walk to the boulangerie and 15 to Angles, 10 mins drive to the supermarket and fantastic beaches. Lots to do within about 1hr drive, people watersports including kayaking and stand up paddle boarding for the more energetic, la Rochelle and châteaux's for the cultured and beaches and a pool for relaxing. Several theme parks and a water park nearby, although with all the air things around we didn't visit these
The villa was well catered for with good facilities for very small children and water pistols for the young at heart!
The owners were very helpful and gave us really good customer service.
Would really recommend this villa.
Very nice villa. very user friendly and in a good location for local amenities. we have stayed at various villas over the years and this one rates with the best of them .We were not blessed with the best of weather,but that's the luck of the draw . We still found plenty to do and places to eat in the area. We especially enjoyed a couple of meals at the Stecel restaurant in Angles. Altogether a very enjoyable experience which we can recommend to anyone. The booking experience was easy and user friendly
Many thanks for your good review - we're glad that you enjoyed your holiday here at Villa Moricq. The nearby town of Angles is great for restaurants and there's usually lots of events going on over the summer weeks as well!
