Villa Vindee

Alpine Chalet

"The place is great. St Martin on Ile de Re is fantastic for food and the local bar did us proud. The pools and decking are really superb and the local wine tasting in Mareuil was excellent."
"We had a fantastic time at Thue - we all agreed it was our best holiday yet! The house was very comfortable with plenty of space for all 11 of us and had all the little 'extra's' that you only normally expect to find at home. The plastic plates and cups were a real bonus with six boisterous children, it certainly made mealtimes more relaxing! The pool was in constant use by both children and adults and we particularly loved the outdoor covered eating area which we made good use of both day and night. The bikes were great and we had lots of family bike rides locally. Thanks for the write up on the area which we found very useful, we visited many of the recommended places and had a great time. All in all a really enjoyable holiday home which we would thoroughly recommend to other families"

"We have returned from a wonderful two weeks at the mill. the house suited our three families perfectly and the weather was wonderful. we were also impressed by the area - we had not expected herminault (L'Hermenault) to have so many facilities. we used the pharmacy and doctor once while we were there and both were sorted within 5 minutes ! we had also not expected fontenay le compte to be so pretty and we spent a couple of lovely days and evenings there. it turned out to be the sort of holiday where we didn't have to travel far at all. we are looking at trying to arrange another booking for next year and will check out availability on your website"

"We had a lovely time in France, loved the country and the house (Wheelhouse) and especially the pool, went in it every day"

"We had a brilliant week, the wheelhouse was lovely. Ideal place for families with young children. We used the bar/restaurant in the next village (turn right at bottom of driveway, less than a mile) and the people there were really friendly. Weather was good too, bit too hot at some points for the fair skinned of our group! Anyway you've done a great job there, thanks again!"
