Beach Holidays in France - Home page

A sincere and HUGE thank you to all our guests who have taken the time to write to us about their holiday experience here in the Vendee. As you can imagine we are just thrilled, again this year, to receive so many wonderful comments and it really does make it worth getting up every morning....!!!

WOW - thank you :) 

A lovely relaxing break - 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.

Everything I could wish for supplied - Having pre-school kids we were able to take advantage of the fabulous weather in France in September. We booked Le Mimosa last minute and were just thrilled with the villa and super warm and incredibly safe pool (fully fenced with lock gate) it's the most well equipped villa we have EVER stayed in with lots of extras that really made it a "home from home" experience. The village was just a minutes walk away so each morning we stopped off in the little play-park on our way back from collecting our croissants and baguettes - the kids loved it. The beaches were spectacular and definitely a favourite part of the holiday, sandy beaches as far as the eye could see. My 2 year old loved all the dressing up clothes and toys and was very disappointed she couldn't take them all home. Donna and her team were ever so thoughtful and caring making sure we had everything we needed and the personal touches on arrival were great. The layout of the house was perfect for us (4 adults and 2 kids), but with 3 double bedrooms and an extra kids room, it would certainly fit in easily another couple with kids. We had a wonderful week at Mimosa and highly recommend this great house and area.
Mrs P from London - September 2018


Family friendly - We couldn't have asked for a better location for our family holiday. we could wander down to the patisserie for our morning croissants and pain au chocolate. The beautiful safe sandy beaches were only a 10 min drive away and there was a waterslide park and chateau de adventures 15 mins so we didn’t need to travel far to entertain our 3 children. the gite was so well equipped with toys books and games inside and out didn't always have to go out to keep them entertained. their happy place was by the pool and it was so warm clean and safe we were able to relax and watch them having fun.
Mr and Mrs G from Essex - September 2018


​We had a wonderful holiday. The accommodation catered for our every need. The pool was fab and provided hours of endless fun for the children. The location was great as not far to a lovely beach and the island of Ile de Re. We couldn’t wish for a better holiday, and looking king forward to returning
Mr C from Surrey - September 2018


We had a mixed age holiday 75 down to 4 and we all had a wonderful time. Booking was easy and the staff were all really helpful, we couldn’t have asked for better service. The house was perfect for all ages with toys for all from Wii to dressing up clothes for the little one. Really clean and the pool was fabulous. The location was excellent as it was so close to beach, supermarket and a short walk to the village. . Brilliant work Donna and Jay.
​Mrs B from Hemel Hempstead - August 2018

​Highly Recommended. Just had our second holiday at “Mimosa” and have booked again for next year. It’s a great place for a 3 generation family holiday with lots to do for children of all ages. The pool is excellent. Extremely well maintained and safe. Loads of toys & games for the kids. The kitchen is very well equipped and the layout of the house is perfect for the extended family. Lots of thought and effort have been put into providing everything you can think of for a great family break. The management team drop by from time to time to make sure everything is ok. Beaches are just a 15 minute drive away. The village is just a few minutes walk. There’s a street market there twice a week in the season - Don’t miss it.
​Mr H Surrey - August 2018


Super location, and super villa which catered for our our family needs. Highly recommended and we will certainly consider coming back to Le Mimosa. Thank you for a wonderful stay.
Mrs B from London - August 2018

Angles in the Vendee. Spacious, well appointed delightful property. Perfect for one large family or two families in separate parts of the house. The pool and hot tub, the magnificent outdoor dining area are perfect for holiday en plain aired experience. Overall a great family friendly property with some thoughtful extras for the children. The dress up inclusions and chalk board a nice touch. I would highly recommend this property for a wonderful stay in The Vendee.
Mr G from Australia - July 2018


My family all went together and stayed in La Mimosa for our summer holiday and it was incredible. The layout of the house made it seem like it was never crowded but we were able to eat together every day around the massive table which was one of my favourite parts of the stay. The pool was fantastic and it was hard to get the children out of there at any time of the day. The house is equipped with everything you could need and the village is lovely and quiet. There are plenty of things to do nearby, especially for children. Would definitely recommend and definitely go there again.
Mr G from East Sussex - July 2018

My father kindly booked this villa for us all over the summer this July and it was fantastic. The villa when you arrive takes you’re breath away and as you explore it seems to go on forever. The villa has a hub in the centre that everyone can use and enjoy making meal times a delight, even when there were 13 of us sat at the table to eat!! I cannot fault the villa at all. Outside is a million times better than inside. The pool is the perfect temperature and is wonderfully clean. It has more than enough room for everyone outside with a large range of facilities. We found we used the giant connect 4 constantly on the decking and the kids were all constantly using the big chalk board. The local village is beautiful and everyone was very friendly. Everything was thought of with regards to children’s toys and comforts. The smart TV was excellent, but maybe instructions for that would be helpful. From start to finish it felt like luxurious holiday in your own home. I wish we could go back again.
Mr R from London - July 2018


​Everything about our holiday was great. Booking was easy and any questions we had were answered swiftly. When we arrived we were so pleased to see how the house was presented. We all said 'wow' as we walked in and looked at everything. The children were thrilled with all the toys etc. and the chalk board was a lovely touch. It didn't take long for us all to put our costumes on and jump into the fabulous pool. The house was right on top of the lovely quiet village which had everything you needed including a market on Wednesday and Sunday
Mr V from North London - June 2018

​The booking process was simple; pre-arrival info was comprehensive and extremely helpful.  The indoor equipment was above and beyond expectations and our girls got a bit kick out of the dressing up clothes and enjoyed watching videos in their own den! The garden was nice although our kids didn’t spend too much time in it as the ‘pull’ of the swimming pool was too strong!  The maintenance team is great, we had a couple of things that need sorting and they were dealt with promptly and with a very good attitude. The layout of the house suited our family perfectly (6 adults and 4 kids). Anyone considering this villa can be assured it exactly as advertised – no porkies! The beaches in the area as super family friendly, we had lots of fun and our 8yr old granddaughter discovered surfing is quite easy!  We didn’t use any of the hospitality services at the villa however in different circumstances they would have been very helpful.  The house is tranquil and is the best place we’ve ever stayed in on a self-catering basis.  Donna and Jay have put a lot of thought and organisation in the villa – it’s brilliant.  We have really enjoyed this villa, it’s AMAZING, thank you for a wonderful holiday.  
​Mr and Mrs T from Texas - June 2018


​The first impression walking through the door at Le Mimosa was excellent and the personal touches great.  The house was very clean and the attention to detail from the staff excellent. We would definitely  recommend this villa, in fact we have already booked for next year as we had an excellent holiday!
Mr H from Croydon - August 2017

Very impressed with the whole booking process, Donna was very informative and answered all of my questions prior to booking.  We very much appreciated the early check in with the babies so thank you for arranging this.  The swimming pool was absolutely brilliant, very safe and all the area newly refurbished.  The housekeepers were especially helpful, the house was extremely clean and the beds very comfortable. The house worked well size wise (8 adults & 3 kids) and we would definitely recommend Le Mimosa to other families.
Mrs B from London - August 2017

We had a fantastic holiday at Le Mimosa this August.  The house is just perfect for kids.
​Mrs B from Surrey - August 2017

We found every aspect of the holiday a very positive experience. The property is of a very high spec with everything you need for a great holiday. We have loved the open plan kitchen/lounge and dining area. The pool helps make the holiday and the village has some lovely food shops and weekly markets which area a great attraction. The twice weekly musical events in the village square are great fun. The ability to arrive early is very nice especially if you have just finished a long drive and all yo want to do is settle into your holiday home. We've had an excellent holiday and found the whole team very friendly and welcoming. We would recommend Le Mimosa to any family.
Mr and Mrs L from The Midlands - July 2017

We received an excellent service from our hosts whilst staying at Le Mimosa. They went above and beyond to make our stay very pleasant even offering to cook/bake with our children on a rainy day! The Maintenance and cleanliness has also been excellent and attentive making sure we had everything we needed. We've enjoyed local shops and restaurants especially the pizzeria and grill in Angles and the boulanger for an excellent helping of croissants/pastries :) Our most enjoyed trips out have included the Zoo and the Chateaux de Adventure - both excellent for young children.  We highly recommend Le Mimosa and think we will be returning!
Mr K from Cheshire - May 2017

​Very happy with the booking process, information received prior to our holiday, indoor equipment supplied, the maintenance team, villa assistants, cleanliness and layout of Le Mimosa.  We were really impressed with the beaches and the local area plus how reachable from the UK they were.  We were so very lucky to have had fab weather in September too!  Overall we have been very happy with the service and lovely people who were easy to deal with.


We have stayed in houses in France many times over the years since our two daughters were born. They are now 21 and 19 and this is the best property we have ever stayed in in France. There were a group of 6 of us. My husband and I, our two daughters and their boyfriends. From the minute we made the booking the service we received was excellent. Great communication with the company and a couple of days before we left we received a call to ask if we had any questions. The property itself was spotlessly clean and had everything you could possibly need i.e. iron, ironing board, hairdryers, travel adapters, a Wii, a huge TV screen, 2 fridges, washing machine, clothes line, a dishwasher, beautifully ironed bed linen and towels and tea towels. The pool is not that big, but would be ideal for young families and my daughters and their boyfriends were in there every day. A huge selection of quality magazines were laid out on the huge coffee table. The villa assistants were amazingly good at cleaning and very friendly and informative. Coming back to a beautifully clean and tidy house after a day out was pure luxury. There were plenty of novels and DVDs and in the bathroom there was a Jacuzzi bath and a selection of magazines to read whilst soaking in the tub. I cannot stress that this house is a home from home and has every utensil and cooking pot that you could ever need and item you could ever need. There were two showers, one bathroom, two toilets. This property is ideal for two families as there are two different 'ends' to the house separated by the living area and the kitchen. From start to finish a fabulous holiday.  


Just thought I would drop a quick note to thank you for such excellent service!  We thoroughly enjoyed our holiday at Le Mimosa. 10/10 for everything in the house and 10/10 for cleanliness!   Also just to say that team are such an asset and were so informative and so helpful to us. 

​The information received prior to arrival was excellent. The equipment was good with very good outside equipment for everyone. Although we did not need the maintenance staff they were on hand if we did and kept the pool very well looked after.  Our villa assistants were great and the cleanliness of the property on arrival was also excellent.

​Staff were lovely and very friendly. The layout and facilities of Le Mimosa was excellent for two families. There were many leaflets and information on the local area and the babysitting option was great!  Overall brilliant holiday – thank you. 

​Fantastic holiday experience, we all had a great time and the kid’s equipment was AMAZING! Our villa assistants were very helpful and knowledgably and the attention to detail received from them excellent. 

​We had a lovely holiday – nothing to complain about! The restaurants in the village were very hospitable and our villa assistants were incredibly helpful and we felt very well cared for.  There were some lovely touches in the house like magazines and toiletries etc. Les Conches is a beautiful beach and the kids love the sea and surfing. Overall holiday experience at Le Mimosa – Excellent!


We had an excellent family holiday at Le Mimosa.  We were 3 families of various ages including babies and grandparents. The sales team and booking service was straight forward and the cleanliness and attention to details from the staff excellent. We received lots of information prior to our arrival and were very impressed with all the information supplied at the property once we arrived. The maintenance team were very good and came out to help us straight away and the property was as described on the web-site. 

We had a wonderful holiday at Le Mimosa. There were 7 adults and 5 children ages ranging from 1 to 13 years old. Everyone loved the pool. The support team are very helpful and friendly. It is wonderful being so close to shops, restaurants and bars.


"This is our second year at Le Mimosa and we love it. The location is perfect and the kids have especially enjoyed their morning trips to the bakers. The house is great with a perfect layout. We've really appreciated the toys and swings, particularly for our youngest child who is 20 months. The couple who have looked after the house have been brilliant and cleaned daily to a very high standard, we were very impressed."


At La Mimosa we had a superb swimming pool which was fenced, a good range of kids toys and we like the up to date magazines. The layout and size of the property, inside and out, was excellent for socialising and evening meals."


The cleaning and maintenance team at Le Mimosa was excellent. As was the cleanliness of the pool, the property and the attention to detail from the housekeeping team."


Booking process for Le Mimosa very good. Indoor equipment good. Excellent play equipment for the kids. Holiday/maintenance support team were excellent. Cleanliness, size and layout of the property good. Angles village had everything."


We stayed for a week at Le Mimosa in May 2011- my wife and 2 children, my sister, her husband and 2 children and my parents. We were a party of 6 adults and 4 children aged from 3 months to 6 years old and Le Mimosa proved to be the perfect villa in every respect


The accommodation was very spacious. Three bedrooms and a bathroom are at one end of the villa and 2 bedrooms and a bathroom at the other which proved to be very practical for our party. My wife and I and 2 young children were well away from the rest of the party with our own bathroom so when our 3 month old baby was up in the night we weren't worrying about disturbing the others. The villa caters brilliantly for children meaning we could minimise the amount of kit we took with us. High chairs, cots, change mat and baby bath were all provided and a fantastic range of toys and games meant we hardly took any of the children's gear with us apart from things for the journey making it all so easy.


The outside space was also excellent and safe. There's a private pool, lovely terrace with lots of seating and sunbeds, a large BBQ and spacious garden for kicking a ball about and a great children's play swing and slide. The garden is secluded and secure on all sides and the pool is fenced-in so we were happy our roving 2 year old was safe.


The location is also fantastic- just outside the centre of the village of Angles so we were able to walk into the village regularly. The route is paved all the way so it's easy to walk with the buggy. The village has a great butchers, mini supermarket, at least 2 bakeries and a few bars and restaurants. My wife and I had a lovely meal at La Cambuse one evening.


There are a range of beaches 10-15 minutes’ drive away. We loved La Tranche-sur-Mer and La Terriere- the latter being wilder but both had good lunch options and the beaches were spacious and clean and great for kids of all ages.


We would strongly recommend this gite for the perfect family holiday and we will certainly be booking again soon
Being able to simply walk to the village for a good meal was just perfect, your villa is in the perfect location for a family with children and we couldn’t have of asked for any more toys to entertain the kids


We had a fantastic stay, were thrilled by the level of attention to detail, quality of finish and attention to the small things, like the kids toys, the AV equipment, the coffee and bits on arrival.... I could go on! Susan and her team impressed throughout, as did every element of the service. I could not recommend it high enough - but not too highly - I'd like availability next year please!!


We stayed at the La Mimosa in Angles our two boys 2½ and 10 months, plus two of our friends and their 20 month daughter. it is large enough to take a lot more. The accommodation is fantastic and very reasonably priced away from the peak season (one of the advantages of having pre-school age kids). Lovely clean pool, we paid extra to have heated, big garden area with slide, climbing area and swings and a large projector screen, great for watching Peppa Pig

Angles is a nice village with a few restaurants all offering great food, even if a couple of them don't look that great from the outside. The locals were all very friendly and we have a pretty good laugh with them. La Tranche sur Mer and other beaches are very close by. La Rochelle is a lovely city and about 40 minutes away. We would definitely go again.


We think the beds were the real bonus, what a fantastic surprise to have comfortable beds. Excellent holiday - thanks for thinking of those extra touches too! Perfect location, excellent facilities a real find

We had a really fantastic week. The villa was really spacious and comfortable and absolutely perfect for the little ones. The property had everything you might need for a holiday ready and waiting. Loads of toys & books for the children - and a home cinema for us to enjoy when they were asleep!


If you are looking for some peace and quiet in France with a two minute walk to a welcoming friendly village then look no further than Angles. The Mimosa was very spacious with everything we required at hand including all mod cons, drop down TV screen, floor to ceiling adult and kids videos and music centre.  We enjoyed the splendid warm pool located through the large French doors within the flower boarded garden and housed BBQ area. When exploring, we did not have far to travel through the picturesque fields surrounding the town or to the clean beaches which had a charming atmosphere.


Overall we found our stay to be as relaxing or as energetic as we decided day to day, always clean with pleasant people around.  We couldn’t fault our weeks holiday in anyway. We would highly recommend a visit to Le Mimosa as we will return with our family very soon. Everything has been great. We have really enjoyed our stay. The boys have loved it all. Beaches fantastic.  Lovely house for larger groups, especially with small children. Loved being able to walk into the village for coffee and croissants. Maintenance team very approachable and responsive. Great open kitchen/ living area – very comfortable. Well supplied with kitchen utensils etc. Loved the outdoor table for eating. Pool was heated just right. Table tennis was a bonus. BBQ set up worked well.  The house is great and perfect for young families. It is well equipped and thoughtfully presented – we had a great time!
