“Great Family Accommodation in Vendee”
Reviewed September 7, 2016 for a stay in August 2016

Lapwing House is a well equipped family cottage in an authentic Vendee village. The private pool and enclosed garden are great for a young family and super beaches can be found within a 20 minute drive. Further afield - La Rochelle, Ile de Re, and Coulon are all within a 90 minute drive. We are a family of six and there was plenty of space for us all (there were 3 spare beds)This cottage can accommodate 2 families easily.

I would go back to this cottage and this ideal area of the Vendee.

“Wonderful holiday house”
Reviewed August 27, 2013 for a stay in August 2013

What a lovely holiday house, great sized rooms and a lovely large garden and pool. We had a fab holiday and fantastic weather up to 34C. We meet my brother and his family there and the kids loved it - they had loads of room to run around and play.
Lovely sandy beaches just 15 mins away and very suitable for family.
Need a car as there are no shops in the village but they are only 5 -10 mins away - there is a local bar in the village just across the square - seemed popular and serves food also - but only opened Sunday.

“A relaxing, family break in a brilliant, quiet location.”

We had a wonderful time at Lapwing House, just the relaxing week away that we needed. Annette was there to great us, as promised, and she was always on hand should we need her throughout the week.

Overall the facilities are great and the house had more than enough room for all 8 of us visiting (mother, family of 5 and my wife and I had no problems with the rooms and space available). We all enjoyed the pool and the kids especially enjoyed the board games/ping pong which they could play in the sun room.

Only one or two grumbles; the washing machine did break while we were there but Annette did come out to see to this immediately so we can't really complain and we do think the garden would benefit from some sun-loungers. We did also have a complaint from the neighbours that the children were enjoying themselves too much and making a bit of noise, which was a shame as they're only young and it was the middle of the day! Must have been laughing too loud!

The location is great, a quiet little village with Lucon only a short drive away (which is good as we never woke up early enough for the bread van!) for everything you need with the beach around 20 mins away (and La Rochelle/Tailmont Saint Hilaire a bit further away too).

We'd thoroughly recommend Lapwing House and wouldn't hesitate staying again, thanks for a wonderful holiday.

“Great cottage for family holiday”

Good location for visiting the Vendee region. A car is a must as there are no facilities in the village apart from good bar serving food occasionally opposite. The cottage is spacious and has an excellent games room for children with table tennis and air hockey. There is two bedrooms upstairs which is suitable accomodation for one family and the other two rooms are in a seperate area of the property. Access to one of these rooms is via a small set of steep stairs. Great garden with pool. 15 mins drive from the beach.
