Maison Mimosa
Overview cottage - 3 Bedrooms, 2 Bathrooms, Sleeps 6

Maison Mimosa is a wonderful venue for your holiday in the Vendee region of France.
This holiday cottage sits on the edge of the village, within 200 metres easy walk of the local shop.
There is a very pretty swimming pool enclosed with stone walls in your private garden, with a summer kitchen with a fridge, sink, and indoor barbeque so you don’t have to stray too far when you are lazing by the pool!
The house itself has been completely renovated and features much of the original stonework and wooden beams, but with full central heating, a fitted kitchen, and all you need for a great holiday. There are mature trees and shrubs in the lovely enclosed gardens. Beyond the village you have the attractive town of Luçon 7km to the west which has plenty of shops, bars and restaurants.
There is a choice of glorious beaches within a half hour drive and why not visit the stunning medieval port of La Rochelle, 50km to the south.

What our guests say!

A superb house and pool.

Very well equipped and good location for sightseeing and activities!
Jane & Rich have done everything to make sure you have all you need for a really relaxing, comfortable holiday in the Vendee. We loved cycling and walking in the area. The village bakery is superb and the local restaurant L'Aubraie serves delicious food at reasonable prices. The house itself has lots of space for a family. We loved eating outside, both on the patio and poolside. Our 6 year old couldn't wait to go for a swim every day. The house is well equipped with books, games and DVDs just in case the rain comes. We had a wonderful time and can thoroughly recommend Maison Mimosa.
First stayed in Mimosa in 2010 and were delighted to return again.

A lovely house in a peaceful location. Clean bright airy bedrooms with comfy beds, great showers and enough loos to please anyone! Lots of comfy furniture downstairs with all the trimmings like iPod dock, big TV and lots of DVD's.
The house is so well equipped you will be hard pushed to find anything the haven't thought of.
Private pool is really private so no need to fear you are being overlooked. Lovely cottage style garden - a real haven for birds which is delightful!
Can't wait to return again!!
“Absolutely perfect”

Staying at Maison Mimosa was an absolute pleasure. We had a great welcome, everything about the house is superb;
It's Location - Easy to get to, 3 1/2 hours from Caen. Bakery less than a 5 minute walk away, La Rochelle 40 or so minutes away , 20 more to the unbelievably beautiful Il-De-Re and some beautiful spots such as La Tranche-sur-Mer, La Faute-sur-Mer much closer. Lucon and its large Supermarkets are only 10 minutes away too.
The House & Facilities - The house has everything you want, its furnished beautifully, amazing linens and towels. The house itself has heaps of character (without the downsides of character properties cold, drafty, small) high ceilings, great decor, lots of space its just perfect.
The Pool Area - It's an absolute delight to spend the day by the pool, it's walled so nearly no wind but captures the sun. Has a great internal BBQ area, work top and essential fridge for keeping your day beers cool! We took our children and the pool being secure was a big thing, here it's very secure, no worries at all.
The Gardens - There's loads of them! All great. You can sit right outside the house, great in the evening when the kids are asleep upstairs. A lovely sunny patio and garden at the top of the pool and another hidden one where you can hang your washing!
Jane is superb to deal with, and Rosalyn / Tony who gave us the optional welcome were great too, lots of helpful info and really nice.
I hope this review helps if you are looking but don't book too many weeks next year as we can't wait to return! ;) ha
We had a fantastic time thanks. What a great place you have. Our feedback is very positive. . . .

Beautiful garden which is extremely well cared for
Large pool with good range of depth
Outside cooking area that proved particularly helpful in week 1, when a BBQ uncovered would have been a challenge with the rain
Plenty of living space inside
Very clean and well maintained
Exceptionally well furnished
I could go on. We have stayed in 4 different places in La Vendee and Mimosa is top of the list.
