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.
We spent a great week here. The house is ideal with an enclosed garden and a lovely pool. It is very peaceful and the village is worth exploring - it has a castle and a lake (with a beach!). The owner is English and very helpful but unobtrusive at the same time.
Lovely week - kids loved the pool. Perfect to relax around. House and garden beautiful, with all you need for your stay. We enjoyed a couple of BBQs. Very peaceful, rural village. Lovely Château to visit, lake with activities for kids. We had a fantastic week.
This was our first visit to Apremont and I think we will be coming back. Maison Blanc is a lovely, well-equipped house in a great location within 10 minutes walk of all the village amenities. Comfortable, bright and clean with everything a visitor would need including the excellent pool which kept the kids constantly occupied.
In Apremont itself there is the wonderful castle plus two good restaurants, a great little boulangerie and the lake with its boats, wakeboarding and inflatables. Plenty of other nice villages in the area, a selection of larger towns with decent street markets and the big supermarkets, and a fab beach only 20 minutes away at St Gilles Croix-de-Vie. Further afield, the Ile-de-Noirmoutier and the Passage du Gois offer a 'must see' day out.
Leaving was difficult!! Our thanks go to Paul, and also to the excellent Jean next door, for looking after us and ensuring our stay was everything we wanted it to be.
We came last year and had a fantastic holiday, this year didn't disappoint either.
The house and its surroundings are fabulous and with the added attraction of the private pool, this house makes for great holiday.
