Well equipped, stylish property. If you like cooking then the kitchen is really well equipped. The garden is spacious and well tended. A real home from home, only with better interior decor!

Amazing house.. Fantastic facilities, Everything is covered. Have thought about it.. But nothing to add. Perfect. We were so lucky with the weather and didn't need to go too far other than the shops or to entertain ourselves. We popped over to The Ile de Re one day for old times sake but really didn't need to (the toll is now €16) and the tide was out! Such a delightful week away. The house clearly caters for the safety of young children but as parents of 'older' children (1x20yr 3x18yr and 2x15 yr) there was plenty for us all to do around the house and our young adults were happy. Great house, we would thoroughly recommend xx

Wonderful, relaxing holiday for a 3 generation family in a tranquil village setting. This beautiful, spacious house is stylish, comfortable and really well-equipped. We loved the fantastic outdoor eating area, amazing pool and gardens and day trips to nearby La Rochelle and Ile de Ré.

A truly marvelous place! We were 12 in all (3 families) and everyone had the space to be both together and apart. The kids (from 9 to 16) played constantly and never once asked for electronics! I put it down to the table tennis table and the zip wire in the garden!! And of course the pool. The kitchen is very well equipped and there is enough stuff for everyone and everything! And the decor is just fab, just a lovely place to stay and share great times. Thank you Sandi!

The Dream Holiday
34 Route de Nalliers, Pouillé, Pays De La Loire, 85570, France

After much research we settled on this wonderful home. It is far more than a holiday home and has everything one could wish for for every age. We found the house to be clean and well prepared and the heated swimming pool clean and ready for use too - which was great. We have had some Amazing visits to the beaches near by are favourite was La Tranche. We loved are holiday and would strongly recommend it to all are friends and family. Grace Thornborrow.

We've just returned from a wonderful stay at no34. The house is massive, beautifully laid out with great open spaces to cook and relax. We were blessed with a lovely hot week, so spent the majority of our week poolside and in the garden. The area is pretty remote, but the giant Leclerc in Fontenay is just a few miles down the road for all supplies you might need. Many thanks to Sandi, who was always accessible and super friendly, we'll definitely be back!!

What a great place with plenty of space, lovely rooms - even better than the description. The gardens are lovely with birdsong all day long. We all had a marvellous time and would go again - can't fault it!
