What our guests say!

Thank you for such a great holiday. In 30 years of travelling to France the accommodation has been the best we’ve ever experienced. 

Stephen Kelly - Aug 2019

Excellent property in a convenient location for the Vendee coast

P. Vernon  Left on Aug 17, 2019 for a stay in Jul 2019

Second year at Villa Alba this time with 6 adults, two children and one baby. All had an excellent time and renting for two weeks allowed younger members of the group to take cheaper mid-week ferries. Pool was the central focus and the addition of the semi-enclosed outside seating area was welcome. Nearby coastal area of St.Gilles Croix de Vie and Nearby supermarkets made stocking up with food/wine easy. BBQ is in open so drives use to the later evening when it is cooler.

Lovely villa, fantastic location

 Left on Aug 5, 2018 for a stay in Jul 2018

Spent a week here with family - 6 adults and 2 children - and had a great time. The bedrooms were comfortable and the bathrooms were clean. The living room was a great size with a big dining table. Kitchen was well equipped. Outside was lovely - great pool for playing, lots of space and plenty of chairs. The villa is on a development behind private gates meaning it was quiet and safe. Although the golf club was only a 5 minute walk we stayed around the villa. Coex (5 minute drive) has a small SuperU and 2 boulangeries. St Gilles is a great town with lots of restaurants. Villa owners answered all our questions in advance which was appreciated as well.

Maison confortable et agréable à vivre

Les prestations offertes sont conformes à ce qui figure dans l'annonce. Cette villa est agréable, spacieuse et convient à plusieurs personnes. Le logement dispose d un lave-vaisselle, un réfrigérateur, un four à micro-ondes, une machine à laver et un sèche-linge. Le propriétaire est charmant et a su répondre à toutes nos questions très rapidement. Il entretient parfaitement son bien immobilier. L'endroit est calme, sécurisé et reposant. Enfin la région est propice aux sorties en famille même par temps de pluie puisque de nombreuses activités sont proposées : visite de moulin à vent, aquarium,etc...Nous avons passé de bonnes vacances et sommes ravis de notre séjour.
Perfect villa for a relaxing break

A perfect villa for a totally relaxing break. The villa offers loads of space both inside and out with the addition of the heated outdoor pool, heaven! The local area is typically French with all main requirements catered for just a few minutes away in Coëx. 10-15 minutes further away you'll find Saint-Gilles-Croix-de-Vie where you'll find everything you might need. Perfect place for a relaxing break.

5 stars!

Everything that the photographs displayed of the house was honest and true. An ideal location for revisiting the area first visited in 1982, and subsequent number of years at various times. My son wanted to do this, as he was just a child, now 37!!!! I selected Villa Alba and the house and everything in it was SUPERB. Just love the Vendee.
“Wonderful villa and location for a family holiday”

Reviewed 16 January 2017 for a stay in June 2016

This was our second family vacation to the area and on both occasions we have stayed in this villa. It is absolutely superb, it offers everything you need to enjoy your stay. The villa is immaculate, all the bedrooms are extremely comfortable and spacious. There are plenty of bathrooms for a larger group and it also boasts a fully equipped kitchen for all your needs!
The property has a great layout for all the family to enjoy, it has patio doors straight out into a wonderful private garden area with its own pool, great for the kids or a nice relaxing dip. There is also a covered area to sit and relax, reading your book or to take five minutes out of the sun.
The location for this property is excellent, it is in a private community with plenty to see and do within the surrounding area. If you are a fan of golf like myself then you are in luck. Situated in the complex is a wonderful 18 hole course 'Golf des Fontenelles' which has its own pro shop, driving range,practice putting area on site. Highly recommended for a round of golf or two during your stay. There is a clubhouse on site to stop for a quick bite to eat or a drink to cool off. I would definitely recommend booking a meal at the on site restaurant 'Le Balata' the food is delicious, set within a comfortable dining area and its only stroll back to your villa in the evening.
As well as the golf the area is well suited for walking,cycling or even a spot of tennis down by the communal pool area next to the clubhouse.
The location for this property simply could not be better, everything is just a short drive away with plenty of tourist attractions for all the family to enjoy. The villa provides a wonderful welcome pack with leaflets of suggested activities and places of interest within the Vendee area.
I will definitely be returning to this villa and would highly recommend it to anyone.

Great villa in a fantastic setting. The house is very well equipped both inside and out. Lovely patio and a super swimming pool make for lazy days. Golf course on site is a real bonus. Nearby town of Saint Gille is lovely with plenty of cafes, shops and restaurants. Communication with the owners is very easy.
“Superb Family Accommodation”

We've now visited this area twice for our main summer holidays over the past couple of years and used this villa on both occasions. It simply offers everything you could possibly need. The villa sits within an extensive and private garden offering the opportunity to enjoy the sun, the shade, quiet time, family fun and games and of course the large heated pool. Inside the villa is as immaculate and spotlessly clean as you would expect. Every possible requirement is covered allowing you to enjoy the complete comfort and space. The kitchen is fully equipped and the main open plan lounge and dining area is great for relaxing or entertaining after a hard day's sunbathing! All the bedrooms are equally spotless and totally comfortable. The villa is situated within a safe and secure private complex providing lots of opportunity for walking, cycling, golfing, tennis or just relaxing at the club house where there is a great selection of fresh food to choose from and cool drinks of course. The Vendee area also has lots to offer and keep adults and kids entertained. Beautiful beaches are only a short drive away and we enjoyed exploring all the local tourist attractions including theme and water parks, aquariums, a zoo and much more. You will not be disappointed if you book this villa and we will certainly be returning. Everything you could wish for in a holiday home.
“Magnificent accomodaton and locaton”

Reviewed 15 December 2016 for a stay in July 2016

Had a magnificent holiday. We have 2 young children who were 6 and 4 and they had a ball. The pool and garden was superb, our children's confidence and swimming came on leaps and bounds with our daughter being in the pool every day no matter where we were during the day or what time we came back. On most days she was virtually last out often in the pool until 8pm or 9pm. We played Tennis and golf on site which again no mater your ability were superb. The Vendee area has loads to offer for all age's water parks, the beaches, the zoo's, quaint French villages and many more. The accommodation was also fabulous. Plenty of shower rooms to go round, great social with the downstairs being an open plan space with more than enough room outside to dine. I cant recommend highly enough.
“Perfect holiday villa in France”

A perfect villa for a family holiday. Loads of space for garden games and the pool is a real luxury. The local area has a very traditional French feel. We found a great restaurant in Coex and also had good food at the on-site hotel. St Gilles is about a 10 minute drive and has markets, a good beach and a large shopping centre.
Played tennis and went to the golf driving range on the complex. There is karting 5 mins away and waterparks in the area for day trips. Plenty to do, but I would have been just as happy spending time relaxing at the villa.
“Fantastic family holiday!”

This is a superb villa, very spacious accommodating the eight of us easily.

The kids had a ball in the heated pool and playing tennis in the enormous garden! We found plenty of family attractions to visit nearby however they were thoroughly entertained playing in our private pool every day!

The villa was very well equipped with a BBQ on which we cooked most nights! There is a village a short bike ride away with some lovely patisseries to buy your fresh morning bread and pastries.

The beach is only a few miles away and is fantastic - it stretches out for miles!

Awesome place, will defo be back!

Have spent yet another enjoyable holiday here. The house is spacious, very well equipped and has its own heated pool. It is ideal for a family holiday with outdoor furniture and a large grassy enclosed garden. The site also has an 18 hole golf course, a driving range, tennis courts, a bar and restaurant. It is a short drive from St. Giles-Croix-de Vie which has a beautiful beach and many affordable restaurants. We love it here.
