About the Owner/Advertiser, Mrs Annette Khan

Hello, I'm Stuart and I live in the UK and have had my holiday home in the Vendée since 2015. The holiday rentals are managed by Annette, who lives nearby.

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.

The Owner Recommends

O'Gliss Water Park

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!

Indian Forest Adventure Park

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.

Puy du Fou Theme Park

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 Beaches of The Vendée

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!

Villa was exactly as described . Everything you could possibly need has been thought of, even shopping bags available. Very well equipped and comfortable villa . Setting superb , villa one side and fields the other . La Tranche-sur-Mer mer nearest resort with plenty of shops and restaurants and a big super u which does get very busy is approx 10 minutes by car . Les conches beach is ten minutes by car , lovely beach . Angles nearest village is lovely place , la cambuse and la trattoria restaurants very nice but advisable to book . Good butchers in the village as well . Intermarche 5 minute walk is ok but

Fantastic Villa!!
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

Owner response

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!
