Reviews, comments on various websites about our cottages and bed and breakfast rooms

“Super clean and very welcoming”

The owners were extremely welcoming and very helpful. They had taken great care to adapt their services to the new Covid world and we really appreciated their thoughtfulness. The room was spacious and comfortable and gave us great access to visit Noirmoutier for the first time.

“Large comfy apartment right next to Passage du Gois”

It is really like living in your own apartment, the suites are really big and have absolutely everything that is needed! The owners are really nice and helping out with whatever you need. We only stayed one night but would definitely come back for a longer time! Location is right next to passage du gois!

“Great value with friendly helpful owners”

Arriving late the Dutch owner went out of his way to arrange a couple of beers and snacks as the local restaurants were closed. The room was comfortable with homely extras, books, games, local information and selection of teas. It would have been great to stay longer to take advantage of bikes.

“Fantastic place”

We have been here twice and will certainly come back again. Hemko and Martine provides that little extra which you do not find many places. Excellent accommodation, beautiful garden including a small swimming pool and nicely situated nearby the coast and the passage du gois.

To say that the hosts are friendly is to say nothing. Really wonderful people. On top of everything, speaking excellent English which is not common in France. Our unquestionable top in the cathegory price/quality. Worth every penny of its price.

“ Perfect location, room and breakfast. Book it!”

Very nice and professional owners. You can have a nice chat with them and ask for sightseeing advice (in english, french, dutch or german), but you don’t have to. Very good breakfast, outdoors if you wish. Private parking 10m away from your apartment.

Everything you could want from a B&B

B&B (or Chambre d’Hôte) has not been my usual preference when holidaying in France but this place changed my thinking!

A delightful little cottage with every conceivable amenity and comfort, in a charming, peaceful location, at a very reasonable price.

The owners, Hemko and Martine are an exceptionally friendly, attentive and helpful couple. Without being overbearing they were constantly concerned for my comfort. They also provided an abundance of helpful information on the area – places to visit, times of the tide (important!), where to eat (and where not), maps and travel guides – everything a visitor might want to know.

As well as a copious and excellent breakfast, Martine and Hemko offer a “Table d’Hôte” on selected nights – a three course meal, eaten with them and other guests, with drinks at a very reasonable price. This was a “first’ for me and most enjoyable. It was also a welcome feature for a solo traveller: there are only two restaurants within walking distance (one excellent, one not recommended), otherwise the nearest are in the town, two miles away.

A small bonus for English-speaking visitors: Martine and Hemko are Dutch and speak perfect English – as well as fluent French.

I would have no hesitation in recommending this delightful place to anyone and hope to be able to return for another visit.

Stayed here while doing some of Euro Velo 1. The owners were very lovely and accommodating. My bike was stored safely and the breakfast was a good spread to send me on my way

“Perfect hosts in an excellent location and such good value.”

You don’t have to wait for the Summer holidays to enjoy this little gem of a place. It is pretty, spotlessly clean and so convenient to explore the magnificent coast of the Vendee. The owners, Hemko and Martine will welcome you warmly and give you all the information you need to make the most of the region. There is an excellent restaurant overlooking the sea front less than a few minutes away and if you follow the tide timetable (kindly provided by your hosts) you can cross the passage du Gois at low tide to visit Noirmoutier (at high tide you can come back via the bridge).
Breakfast is generous and very good quality, including some homemade jam and fresh croissants , yogurt, cheese and delicatessen as well as a choice of baguettes. It will keep you going as you explore the beautiful beaches of Saint Jean de Mont and Saint Gilles Croix de vie.
The beds are comfortable and the kitchen well appointed. There is a also an excellent supply of books and games. We will certainly be back at another time of year to enjoy some of the outside facilities on offer.
Many thanks to Hemko and Martine for such an enjoyable week-end.

“First class gites & table d’hote”

f you are thinking of exploring the Vendee region of France, then we recommend you include a stay at this excellent B & B, in an ideal location close to the Passage du Gois and the beautiful island of Noirmoutier. The hosts cannot do enough for you and the accommodation and food are excellent. We will be back next year.
