A lovely relaxing break


By Mr T on 24-Dec-2019

From the moment we entered the property we were impressed. We absolutely loved the open plan living room, dining room and kitchen area with large door opening onto the patio. The kitchen was the best equipped I have come across is a self catered property - everything had been thought of! All of our party enjoyed the outside area of the property, the pool was perfectly clean with a great decking area surrounding it. We also enjoyed the outdoor seating area a couple of days making full use of the BBQ! Angles (the village where the house is located) was very relaxed, we walked down to the bakery daily to collect our croissants and baguettes for the day. La Rochelle, Nantes and Les Sables are all within driving distance so we took day trips to these places during our stay. We absolutely loved our stay and would certainly love to re-book to come back.

Great house in a perfect location!


By Mr C on 08-Sep-2019

The property, location and activity information provided by the owners were all excellent. We really enjoyed staying at Le Mimosa and would highly recommend the villa to other families sharing together!

Perfect base for family holiday!


By Mr And Mrs W on 11-Aug-2019

Le Mimosa is a fantastic property that ticked all the boxes for what we were looking for as a family. We love the village of Angles and there is so much to do and see right on your doorstep in the surrounding area. Day trips included visiting the O’gliss water park and the zoo at Les Sables, both were really good days out. All the kids toys and games supplied were excellent as was the cleanliness of the villa and our overall holiday - We can't wait to come back!

Great location and perfect house for preschoolers


By Mrs B on 20-Jul-2019

We stayed at Le Mimosa at the beginning of June with three 4 year olds and a 3 year old. The house was exceptionally well equipped and had everything that you needed. There was certainly no need to take anything extra for the children and the toys that were there were perfect for their age group. They loved dressing up and they entertained themselves for hours. The location was perfect for exploring with lots of beaches within 10 mins drive and some parks just a little further. The Le Mimosa guide has some great suggestions of places to go.The advantage of going in early June was there were very few crowds however you do need to check opening time of the parks as some were not open or only opened at weekends. The bakery was fabulous and we made a daily trip in the morning for an array of different pastries and breads. We were unfortunate with the weather and alas had to find several things to do in wet and cold. The aquarium at La Rochelle was great and there was a soft play centre at La Roche (Royal Kids), which helped on a particularly stormy day. All the the team at Le Mimosa were great, Tracey, Rich, Jay and Donna and so quick to help. The holiday house was perfect for what we needed we wished the weather had been kinder but lots of people mentioned it was unusually cold for June and the day after we left (14th) it went from 18 degrees to 28!

Super holiday at Le Mirabelle


By Mr A From London on 08-Sep-2018

Honestly the best 'Self-Catered' villa we have EVER stayed at - What a find, La Mirabelle catered for us all from my 68yr old mum to our 5yr old son. Everything and more was supplied and the owners, Donna and Jay, couldn't have been more helpful and made sure we had the best time. We highly recommend La Mirabelle, the beautiful area but not too much - we want availability to come back next year :) Thanks again guys, you do a fabulous job and deserve success.

Great villa


By Mrs V From Suffolk on 25-Aug-2018

The booking was easy with any questions answered by phone/email straight away. The good selection of toys meant we didn’t have to pack as many as they were all supplied. The sandpit was much larger than we expected, and it was great having the pool securely fenced which allowed the kids to run around the garden safely. Also, the locking gate to the front road was excellent too. All quires arising during our stay were promptly deal with by Donna and her team. The layout was great in the villa and we were able to sleep the youngest in the quiet children’s room, so he could go to bed earlier. The local village, shops and marker were also great. Local sandy beaches close by and we loved the chateau adventure park. The aquarium in La Rochelle was great but busy. The early arrival service was very much appreciated. It was a truly lovely holiday for the whole family – thank you.

Fantastic to return to La Mirabelle!


By Mrs F From Swindon on 18-Aug-2018

It was lovely to return to this fantastic holiday house- it's very well equipped with everything you need for a relaxing family holiday (even if your kids are tiny- it provides all the necessary equipment from high chairs, booster seats to crocodile bath mats!!). For the bigger kids and adults there is a lovely pool, hot tub and table tennis, as well as a large TV as well as numerous games to keep you entertained. La Tranche Sur Mer is very accessible with easy parking- we very much enjoyed the bank holiday fireworks on the beach! Thanks for making our stay here so enjoyable again!

Really loved our family holiday at Mirabelle this August.


By Mrs P From London on 11-Aug-2018

The villa is set up perfectly and you can see that so much thought and attention to detail has gone into making this the perfect family villa. It was all the small things that made such a huge impact - the welcome card from Donna and Jay, the fresh flowers, the bottle of wine and the welcome message to the kids on the chalk board plus so much more. We were all quite overwhelmed with the amount of personal touches at the villa and just how well equipped the kitchen was for example and the bed linen was super nice with very comfortable beds. We ordered an arrivals welcome meal - have to say, best lasagna we've EVER had and home-made by Donna (the owner :) The kids just loved the playroom and spent hours up there in the ball pit and playing with all the dressing up clothes and shoes. We were able to relax each evening knowing they were safe and secure and most importantly having the time of their life whilst us adults relaxed with a nice bottle of local wine on the beautifully lit terrace. This really has been one of our best holiday ever and we would certainly recommend any family with children to book this villa. Thank you Donna and Jay and we hope to come back soon.

Great family house


By Mr P From London on 28-Jul-2018

We've just had an amazing stay at La Mirabelle. The personal touches, the attention to detail and the friendly staff from booking to whilst at the villa made for a fantastic trip. The villa itself is perfectly set up for families with young kids - everything was so easy. The girls loved the toy room and the sandpit allowed the kids to play whilst we relaxed in the evening sun. The swimming pool was fantastic, as was the cleaning of it, we certainly hope to return!

Excellent Holiday


By Mrs W From Kent on 21-Jul-2018

From the moment you speak with the owners you feel cared for. This holiday was for our disabled son & they couldn’t have been more helpful. They went that extra mile. They got us a fridge for his medical supplies, made sure the pool was heated & left a lovely bottle of wine for the adults to enjoy, which was a lovely touch. It was Easy to book & the hosts were so kind & helpful. Excellent childrens activities, toys and books with a secure garden. You don’t even need to leave the villa if you didn’t want to, so much to do. Maintenance service could be reached easily and they were very prompt, not that there was anything majorly wrong just a broken fan which was replaced straight away. La Mirabelle was a clean and spacious villa with beautiful beaches and lots to do within driving distance. Thank you for the lovely arrivals dinner and the the most amazing stay & most importantly helping us make wonderful memories with our son. A holiday we will truly treasure.

Lovely stay,


By Mrs W From Essex on 14-Jul-2018

Brilliant selection of children toys, they were more than impressed! The pool is lovely and hot tub great addition to have. Excellent first impression when you walk through the door of the villa, very friendly and efficient team looking after us and it was nice that Donna (the owner) popped into make sure we had everything we needed. Beaches are lovely, and sand is beautiful. We recommend visiting the chateau adventure park – good for kids and big kids alike! Great holiday at La Mirabelle, we would love to go back.

An amazing choice


By Mrs C From London on 30-Jun-2018

La Mirabelle is quite incredibly well equipped and provided everything we could possibly have wanted and it was immaculately clean upon arrival. The area provides so much and the beaches are a joy for small children. However, the best thing was the help and support provided by Donna, the owner, both before and during our visit. Multi-generation holidays have their challenges and she answered all our queries instantly and so pleasantly. The house with all its facilities coupled with the people make it a really special holiday. We'd love to return. Thanks again.

Exceptional


By Mrs G From Cambridge on 23-Jun-2018

The perfect property for an extended family stay. Fantastically well equipped so clothes are the only thing required to bring in addition. Lots to do in the area and the house, particularly in regards to the playroom which kept the children engaged for hours! The pool and garden were perfect too. The whole place was spotless and the cleaning greatly appreciated. Excellent attention to detail, La Mirabelle exactly as described and we would highly recommend.

Super Holiday at La Mirabelle


By Mrs N From Hertfordshire on 16-Jun-2018

Great family living space and excellent pool. The kids were constantly entertained with the playground area and play-room indoors. The service from the maintenance team and housekeeping was excellent, thank you.

Great fun at La Mirabelle this May with the kids.


By Mr C From Surrey on 31-May-2018

The villa is huge and caters for large groups so it being just 2 adults and 3 kids in our family we had loads of space! The set up is perfect and lots of thoughtful touches throughout the villa to ensure a comfortable stay. The guestbook we received prior to arrival listed some fabulous recommendations re local beaches, attractions and restaurants. We loved our week at this villa but to be fair a week was not long enough - def 2 weeks next time. Great holiday in a lovely part of France - def recommend this villa.

“Fabulous holiday in Vendee. Formidable!”


By Mrs G on 06-Nov-2017

A lovely week at La Mirabelle was had by all! (2x adult couples and 5x children aged between 4 & 11.) Nothing was too much trouble from the initial booking, the attention to detail on arrival and thoughtful considerations throughout our stay. Donna & Jay are very professional and have a lovely, warm approach. The pool, garden (and hot-tub) were absolutely lovely. The kids (and big kids!) were delighted, although there is so much to do within striking distance that they probably didn't exercised that much. Thoroughly recommend the local beaches, the O'Gliss Water Park and The Indian Forest. We'll definitely be back!

“Wonderful house, equipped with everything you could want!”


By Mrs N on 05-Nov-2017

Wonderful week at La Mirabelle - Starting with the booking process, that was all great, Donna was really responsive about answering questions. The pre-arrival call was really helpful as Donna went through loads of questions to make sure we'd have everything we'd need for the children, and would be able to get food when we arrived! It was obviously lovely to get the call offering us the upgrade to La Mirabelle. It was fab to be greeted by a bottle of wine, card and flowers - a really nice touch, thank you! We also appreciated things like the baby bubble bath and the way you'd laid out all the baby equipment. We had a lovely week, the house is fab, so spacious and well though out. The open plan kitchen/dining room/sitting room was a great space and the kitchen was really well equipped and meant my husband could create nice dinners every night. Lovely to have all the DVDs, books etc - gave it a really homely feel. The other family who stayed with us enjoyed some of the Disney DVDs with their little one...sadly my little boy won't sit still for five minutes! The pool and hot tub were great - we didn't get to use them as much as we would have liked as the weather was a bit cold, but pool itself was warm so my little one enjoyed going in with his Dad a few times! The kids had great fun in the playroom, what an amazing den. They loved the ballpit, little table and chairs, Mr Potato Heads, dolls' house in particular! It was great that we were able to book babysitting (and we wish we'd done it more!) - meant we could have best of both worlds and be with the kids during the day and have some time to chill on those evenings. Also thank you for the mid week clean, that was a great help. The only time we had a query (re sun lounger cushions) it was resolved straight away, so thank you! I'm not sure this does it justice, but we really did have a great time and enjoyed being in such a comfortable, well-located house. Thanks again for the upgrade!! So thank you for a lovely week, as many have said previously the only problem is it wasn't long enough!! (And a bit more sunshine would have been nice!). Hopefully we'll be back in one of the houses at some point!

“Great house, garden and pool for children.”


By Mr And Mrs W on 26-Sep-2017

We had a great holiday at La Mirabelle and appreciate all the thought that has gone in to the planning of the holiday and the customer service throughout. Our grandchildren aged from 4 months to 4 years loved their Magic Kingdom as the Loft was christened! They also loved being in the garden and as it was so safe, the adults were able to relax with a glass of wine! The pool was fenced so was very safe which was a big consideration for us. It was everything we wanted it to be and would certainly recommend a stay there. We are telling lots of people how great the house was and what a lovely time we had. Thank you Donna and Jay for all the unexpected little extras, when we start planning the next family holiday you will be very much in our thoughts.

“Perfect family holiday - the owners have thought of everything!”


By Mrs R on 28-Aug-2017

The children's facilities, both inside and outside at La Mirabelle were amazing and the main living area was a fantastic family space which made our holiday so easy & kept 4 little boys well entertained. The secure pool and gates made it easy to keep the children safe and put us parents at ease. The loft play area was the kids favourite place, especially as its too low for adults to stand up in so the boys took great delight in telling us to keep out! There were an excellent selection of toys/games available . La Mirabelle is a great home - not just a place to stay - and suited out family (7 adults and 4 little boys) perfectly. It is beautiful, peaceful, spacious, well equipped and very cosy. Thank you to Donna and team for the lovely flowers, card and bubbly that you left us for our wedding anniversary, as well as leaving a treasure hunt for the boys - these little touches really helped to make the holiday special so thank you. If only the weather had matched the hospitality as it wasn't particularly warm or sunny all week sadly. We would definitely like to return at some point and would strongly recommend a visit for other families looking to holiday in this part of France. The boys loved the nearby Indian Forest tree top adventures - Dad not so much as I hate heights!, and the O'gliss water park was amazing - definitely make sure you take a day trip to this park which is 5-10 mins away.

“Fantastic week!”


By Mrs H on 23-Aug-2017

The information received prior to arrival was great. Attention to detail for the kids was brilliant especially for the little ones and the house was perfectly clean upon arrival . Safety of the pool was paramount and great to have the good sized garden as well. We had a fantastic week and will always come back to one of your houses as we never need to bring anything except clothes! Thanks for a lovely stay

“Amazing holiday”


By Mrs B on 12-Aug-2017

The booking process was very accurate, efficient and the personal call we received from the owner before our arrival was very well received. The childrens toys supplied were very good, lots to do and a good selection. The kids loved the ball pit! The outside area was excellent, the kids loved playing hide and seek in the garden and playing in the sand. La Mirabelle is a good size, with a great open-plan layout. The village of Angles was excellent with good village activities. Longeville beaches were perfect for our needs. Please continue with all the personal touches - they were greatly appreciated.

“Perfect if you have young children”


By Mrs M on 13-Jul-2017

We booked La Mirabelle for our honeymoon - Donna and her team made our arrival really special with toys laid out for our children and a lovely drink for the grown ups! It set the tone for a lovely holiday. The house itself is brilliant for just having lazy days without going anywhere - our children are aged between 1 and 4 and they were delighted to stay home and enjoy the pool (which was fenced off meaning they could enjoy the rest of the garden without endless supervision) and the very many toys. There was an extensive collection of childrens dvds also, but we didnt really get round to them! There is a supermarket just a few minutes away so catering for ourselves was really easy, though we did dine out a few times at some wonderful restaurants (Donna's babysitting service is brilliant!). There was also some great attractions near by - we enjoyed the zoo, trips to the local beaches, an adventure playground and the local chateaux which was a great day out. Thoroughly recommend - the whole family loved this house!

“Perfect holiday”


By Mrs A on 22-Jun-2017

Booking was quick and easy and the house surpassed our expectations. Our daughters were beyond excited when they noticed the play loft which was renamed the 'bouncy room' It didn't take long for the girls to notice the outside play area which they loved. As a parent being able to allow your children to play outside without constant supervision and fear of them jumping into the pool is fantastic and made for lovely relaxing holiday at La Mirabelle. Excellent welcome, and personal touches. Great team with very friendly staff and excellent attention to detail. Brilliant holiday, please don't change a thing - it's all great.

“Phenomenal place to satisfy the preferences of all family members”


By Mr B on 25-Apr-2017

As you drive up to La Mirabelle, you wonder what you will find as all you see is a nondescript wall with a nice sign in a small village in Western France. Once you enter the property, your life will change. This house has everything-- video games, videos, sand-based play area, heated pool, jacuzzi, nice bedrooms, a large kitchen-- and I am sure I am forgetting something. Donna (the owner) prepared a fabulous welcome dinner and provided a range of recommendations. We had anticipated a few of the sights-- La Rochelle, Les Sables d'Olonne-- but Donna told us about Puy de Fou, which is a cross between Disneyland and an outdoor zoo all set in various versions of medieval and renaissance France. We have vacationed all over the world and can honestly say this location plus the home is at the top of our list. We will be coming back often as the hospitality is unmatched and there is so much to do.

“One of our best vacations ever!”


By Mrs H on 08-Feb-2017

We’ll be coming back to La Mirabelle; it was one of our best vacations ever! Our family vacations tend to be hectic, but staying at La Mirabelle shifted things to a lot more fun and relaxing with a lot less hectic. Everything we might ask for was already there, so we were enjoying real holiday time from the moment we arrived. The place is great, but the staff is exceptional. More than just keeping the place clean and well-equipped, there’s an extra measure of thoughtfulness. At some places, we’re just generic guests and the service is factory-style, the same for everyone. It was the opposite here. From getting to know and understanding our individual family’s needs and interests to supplying beach toys and the like, they were working day and night to be sure we could spend our time enjoying the accommodations and the area—great memories we’ll treasure!

“Great villa for all the family”


By Mr & Mrs S on 25-Oct-2016

Three generations of the family stayed here for 2 weeks in September. The villa catered for all us, ranging from 60-odd down to the 3 little ones aged 3, 2 and 1. Everything was well thought of and all of the toys and books for the children were a lovely touch, my children had their favourites for bedtime within a few days! The play loft is great but thankfully we had lovely weather so we spent more time out in the garden on the playset and in the pool than we did inside. We had lots of use out of the pool, jacuzzi and BBQ and I think we had a go at just about every garden game that was provided. The 2 dishwashers were very useful with 9 people in the villa! The host Donna was great and was there if we had any questions along the way from the time we booked. About the area - the area is absolutely beautiful, you definitely need a car but the beaches and towns are less than 10 minutes away. We had a lovely meal at the Italian in Angles, they even had booster seats for our little ones who are too big for high chairs and was very reasonably priced. We also really enjoyed the crepe restaurant in Angles to. The only place we went to in the 2 weeks I would have a bad thing to say about is La Cambuse in Angles, we told them at the time of booking that we had little ones and booked for as soon as they opened so we would be in and out quickly but we were still asked during the meal to keep the children quiet who we didn't think were being particularly noisy so that left a bad taste in our mouth. Overall we all had a brilliant holiday, this was the first time any of us had stayed in a villa and we were very happy with this home from home for our 2 week stay.

“Even Better Than The Photos”


By Mr F on 18-Sep-2016

The beach at La Tranche sur Mer was perfect for the boys aged 17 months to 6 ½ yrs. Flat, sandy with rock pools at low tide and a minimum of waves. There is a sailing and wind surf school at one side of the beach which is fun to watch. There is a large car park (cards only!!!) but avoid weekends in the middle of the day. The ice cream parlour in La Tranche is fantastic - actually it is a very pleasant little town. Angles supermarket had all we needed and the bakers next to it was very good. The markets in the village of Angles (2 minutes drive) on a Sunday and Wednesday had lovely fresh produce and a vibrant air. The Adventure Park and Château at Avrille kept the boys (3 & 6 ½ years old) absorbed for a whole day and was a very French experience. The villa had been perfectly prepared for the children with toys in the bedrooms and a baby swing seat replacing the double swing seat shown in the pictures. The amount of children’s toys and play equipment supplied at La Mirabelle was excellent as was the cleanliness of the house and the friendliness of the staff. With the drive gate shut the villa is totally secure for children. The children enjoyed the balloon model making. The pool was excellent: warm and very big for one villa. The child proof fence and gate worked well. Knowing we had a ‘hot line’ (internal phone with programmed to the maintenance staff) was very reassuring. Having two dish washers was a big plus. Despite sleeping in the front bedroom I heard no traffic. We did have a walk around the local village - St Benoist (no longer) sur Mer. It has an old church and a post box in the square then down by the river is canoe hire. There is nothing else to the village. Three of our family had an early flight from Birmingham to La Rochelle. This worked well for them as we had booked the 2pm check in and there was no need for them to bring toys etc. because we knew they were provided. If you are driving please note that the French roads are very busy on August Saturdays - it doubles the expected journey time. We hope to all come back in two years when there will be an extra toddler in the family.

“Best Family Holiday Home and So Kid Friendly!”


By Mrs G on 15-Sep-2016

What an amazingly beautiful place La Mirabelle is for a family holiday! We had a group of 12 including 3 kids under 10 and absolutely EVERYTHING we could possibly need for all of our fun and enjoyment was provided. They thought of everything down to baby plates and cups spoons! The house itself is perfection. It's beautifully decorated and spotlessly clean and we were very impressed and grateful for the welcome basket of snacks and wine after a long flight from California! The kids play loft was ideal and well stocked with great toys, games and books for kids of all ages. The yard with large dining table and lounge area was perfect for sunset dinners or an afternoon glass of wine in the sunshine and the large pool and hot tub were a big hit with everyone! We especially liked how safe the pool area was with the security fence to keep the little ones from getting too close. There is so much to do just a short drive away at La Tranche Sur Mer, a sweet seaside resort with gift shops, restaurants, gelato and even a small arcade. Also a 15 minute drive away is an amazing Chateau open to the public with expansive grounds and a pirate treasure hunt which is so fun for kids and adults that we did it twice!! Be sure to check it out! Shopping, dining, and entertainment can be found in towns about a 30-40 minute drive away including the beautiful La Rochelle which boasts an AMAZING aquarium along with water front dining and a large selection of high street shops and specialty boutiques. Le Sable D'Olone is a smaller town with a very nice zoo and several shops and restaurants. We loved our day trips to these places but to be honest our favorite memories of this holiday are back at La Mirabelle, playing in the pool, making family meals together in the gorgeous, well stocked kitchen and spending family time over a great meal and bottle of wine on the beautiful patio watching the sun go down. Ahhhhhh bliss!!

“Perfect place for families with young children”


By Mrs A on 07-Sep-2016

We had a great say at La Mirabelle with our friends – the children loved it and we all had time to relax. There was a great range of toys for young children, lots of utensils and a very well equipped kitchen. Lots of space meant both families still had some privacy, the house hosts a great open plan sitting room and it was lovely having such a private garden and pool. The area is beautiful (great for family bike rides as it's so flat!) and we would definitely look at some of the other properties for future holidays and recommend you to our friends.

“Holiday for all the Family”


By Mrs G on 06-Sep-2016

We wanted a large villa in a lovely area so that there would be something for all our family of 12 ranging from 3yrs to over 60 and La Mirabelle certainly filled the bill. We paid for early check in and arrived on Saturday afternoon to a clean and welcoming house, the owners have thought of everything. The open plan living is great for socialising and it flows into the garden via the sliding windows, the bedrooms are all on the same level and the teenagers seemed to enjoy lying about using wifi while being close to food and cold drinks. The pool and hot tub were popular but it's difficult keeping young children out of the hot tub once its uncovered but the owners have given clear guidelines for its use. Loads to do nearby so you don't need to travel much once there, there is a canoe place just round the corner, a new waterpark 10 mins away and go karts 5 mins away all loved by our lot. The relatively unspoilt beaches are near, some good for body boarding and with life guards. A small supermarket and boulangerie 5 min drive away, unfortunately nothing in walking distance the shop and restaurant were up for sale and closed in the village. Angles is lovely though with several places to eat and a large market everyone enjoyed. The weather was hot when we were there and there isn't any air con in the bedrooms so it could be difficult sleeping sometimes, there are mosquitoes so open windows are risky. Only other comment is don't be put off by the endless paperwork involved its worth it in the end, also we have never been openly charged for the cleaning after leaving before.

“Excellent all round”


By Mrs H on 05-Sep-2016

Donna and Jay have thought of pretty much everything. They don't just get the obvious stuff right, but lots of other little things that make your stay exceptionally enjoyable. This is fantastic for children. Lots of toys to play with; safe play areas both indoors and outdoors. The pool is a good size and Jay makes sure it stays in perfect condition. He checks it out 3 times a week. There are lots of things you generally don't get with holiday accommodation and none of the annoyances that you nearly always do get. The kitchen is well stocked with all the equipment, condiments, herbs & spices that you will ever need, so you don't have to buy a load of stuff from the supermarket that you will only use one or twice. The bathrooms are provided with all the basics too - like good hotel rooms. We had a great stay and hightly recommend it.

“Wonderful family accommodation”


By Mrs K on 25-Aug-2016

We had a great time staying at La Mirabelle. The accommodation was ideal for both a group of adults and small children. Loads of toys both inside and outside and lovely social space for the grown ups. The attention to detail from all of the staff from booking through to the end of our stay was fantastic - personalised and bespoke to ensure all our needs were met. I would really recommend this accommodation and the team who run it.

“Everything you need for a family break”


By Mr And Mrs B on 23-Aug-2016

We stayed at La Mirabelle on 13th aug - 20th. 4 adults, 4 children (5 and under) and 2 dogs. The property was perfect as each family took each end of the gite. We made full use of the pool and hot tub. The children loved the sand pit and swings. We knew the property would not disappoint as we stayed at Le Pressoir last year. Donna has a great team that are on call if you need anything. The babysitting service is highly recommended if you want a child free meal at a nice restaurant. We will definitely go back next year.

“Fabulous family friendly home”


By Mrs B on 19-Aug-2016

When we booked La Mirabelle we knew we wanted a family friendly property that would accommodate the needs of four children and five well travelled adults, all our needs were met indeed they were surpassed. The toy room and dressing up clothes were well used as well as the pool and garden. It was a homely family base that enabled us all to have a great holiday, the kitchen is well equipped , the beds were comfortable,l not often found in France. Overall we all had a great holiday, we would definitely recommend La Mirabelle. Many thanks

“Fabulous for a (big) family holiday!”


By Mrs M on 04-Jul-2016

We joined our daughter, son in law and their two little boys at La Mirabelle. They had travelled from California, and seven of us joined them from Scotland, including three grown-up grandchildren. The location was quiet and peaceful, the house felt like a happy, welcoming place from the moment we stepped inside, and the facilities within the property and garden meant that everyone was indeed happy throughout our stay. The house made a great base for excursions to La Rochelle, Les Sables d'Ollonde and La Tranche sur Mer, but we also enjoyed a lot of fun and family time in the garden, around the pool and hot tub and in the large open-plan living room/kitchen area. We loved our time at La Mirabelle - we left with happy memories of a lovely family holiday. Morag and Brian

“Perfect Holiday Facilities”


By Mrs D on 26-Mar-2016

We have just spent a week at La Mirabelle and have been hugely impressed with the facilities, ambience and styling at the gite. The property has a large south facing garden mainly laid to lawn but also a safe and sandy kids play area with swing and slide. There is a delightful additional area with a good size heated swimming pool and newly installed hot tub offering wonderful relaxing facilities for all the family. The pool is fenced off to prevent children straying into this area and the access gate has a clever locking system to prevent toddlers etc gaining access without parents or guardians. A barbecue compliments the garden and importantly there are ample seats and tables for outdoor dining - the property offers good quality decking with a pergola offering shade if required. Indoor accomodation is superb with good quality fittings and fixtures along with flexible room options to allow multi family occupation. Toilet and showering rooms are practical yet luxurious with good quality fixtures and fittings and jacuzzi baths. The main living area is comfortable and of decent proportion and has a upstairs loft area set out as a child play area that will keep numerous young people happily amused. Cooking and dining are well catered for with a large central table and quality kitchen cabinets, along with easy to use and excellent quality white appliances. The gite is situated in a very quiet location and has a relaxing atmosphere . The high vaulted ceiling adding to the charm of the place. We found the owners very attentive and communication was excellent prior and during our stay at La Mirabelle. There is a wide choice of books, DVD and toys etc at the property and English TV channels if required. St Benoist Sur Mer does lack a few facilities but good shopping and restaurants are available at Angels which is a 5 minutes drive away. Overall a quality holiday home and we enjoyed our stay greatly and would highly recommend this gite to anyone looking for a relaxing break in Le Vendee region.

“If we could give it 10 stars, we would!”


By Mrs O on 22-Mar-2016

We had a wonderful stay at Le Mirabelle!! We were provided with extensive photos and description of Le Mirabelle and a comprehensive listing of interesting places to see, local restaurants, etc. We had a great time exploring!! Le Mirabelle is a beautifully appointed home, meticulously clean, very comfortable, with modern appliances, TV, DVD, and wireless access. It is incredibly well thought-out for a couple or a family. The morning after our arrival, Donna checked in on us to see if we understood the house instructions and if we needed anything. We felt as though we were being welcomed by a special friend! Since staying at Le Mirabelle, we've often reminisced that it was one of our most memorable vacations!!
