About the Owner/Advertiser, Mr Paul Hargreaves

I live in England with my wife, 2 children and 2 grandchildren. My wife and I both work, but spend most of our holidays in France, where we have made many friends and have really fallen in love with the country.

Year property purchased 2007
Why this location? We love Apremont and the Vendee because of the fantastic facilities in the area. There are some beautiful beaches and the marina boasts a great range of bars and restaurants. There really is something for everyone here.
We love the combination of peaceful, unspoiled countryside alongside miles of beautiful uncrowded beaches. It's the perfect place to relax, but we also like being able to dip into the more 'touristy' areas when the fancy takes us
The villa is where we spend most of our holidays so is furnished and equipped to a very high standard
The area is easily accessible with Nantes airport less than an hours drive away.
Unique benefits of property Maison Blanc lies some 20 minutes from the coast and there are a number of small resorts offering good beaches, shops, restaurants and outdoor pursuits for children. The gardens are well kept and include a swimmimg pool to cool off during hot afternoons.

The rural location offers peace and quiet and is close to a small charming village with a bar and restaurant.

We would recommend the holiday home to both couples and families looking for a coastal retreat.
Sailing, fishing, canoeing, horse riding and go-carting are all available locally. It is only a short walk from the villa down to the River Vie which also provides great fishing and cycling, with picnic areas and the local wine trail clearly signposted.

We provide bedding so you can travel light and make the most of your holiday.

The Owner Recommends

Apremont Lake

The perfect location for a fishing holiday in France with friends or family. A superb lake offering the angler all types of species & record carp, this wonderfully presented lake offers all the family enjoyment while the anglers of the family can fulfill their passion, and all within walking distance from your holiday home.

St Gilles-Croix-de-Vie

Famed for its fresh sardines. Look for the vintage ones (sardines millésimées) which are supposed to be laid down like fine wine! Even the canned variety are treated with respect. For children with short attention spans there is a tiny museum, the Maison du Pecheur, which used to be a fisherman’s cottage (approx 10 miles).

St Jean-de-Monts

A beautiful sandy beach, which the locals consider one of the most stunning in France (if not the world). If you can wrench yourself and the family from your favourite spot on the sand, it also has great watersports. Or if you or your children fancy yourselves as the next Jamie Oliver, then hot-foot it to the Saturday morning market a couple of miles away for superb fresh produce.

Les Sables d'Olonne

Is a major resort town. It features many opportunities for dining out, ranging from fine French cuisine to an English bars offering Sunday roast dinners. Stroll along the quayside of an evening or enjoy any of the local bars and cafes on the promenade.

Great accomodation in idyllic countryside
Just returned from two weeks in the ideal home. Excellent facilities all round, set in beautiful Vendee countryside, yet only 20 minutes from St. Gilles- Croix- De -Vie. Very peaceful setting within short walking distance of Apremont, a gem of a village. The villa could not be bettered. Excellently maintained and it was a joy to stay there. Paul, the owner, is very helpful and made all the arrangements very easy. Consider ourselves lucky to have come across something special.

Lovely week stay at this great house in Apremont. Perfect for a relaxing week away. Kids loved the pool - brilliant size for the 5 of us. House well equipped, we enjoyed a couple of BBQs. Apremont is lovely, both the chateau and lake to visit and enjoy. Short drive to beach with bars and restaurants. Will be looking to book again soon!

We have just returned from a week at Maison Blanc. This is our third visit to France and by far the best location in terms of a quiet location but having local amenities and places to visit. The activities on the River Vie were great fun and nearby beaches Les Sables D’Olonne and Grande Plage are lovely. We visited the Chateau which was enjoyable and the Croissants at the Patisserie are yummy! Our party included myself, husband, mother in law, three teenagers and our dog. Maison Blanc is well equipped, beds very comfortable and the pool is excellent, very clean and well maintained. The owner Paul provided lots of useful information prior to our visit and contacts were on hand if we had any problems which was very reassuring. All in all a relaxing week and thoroughly recommended.
