Using a unique identity verification process, (URU), we have undergone official identity checks.  This is done by having our details cross referenced against national and international databases, so you can be assured that our identity is verified and you can rent our holiday home with confidence.

As parents ourselves, Jay and I know just how difficult it is to find that 'dream holiday' destination. We struggled for years trying to find accommodation in France that was not only safe for our young kids,  but also gave us parents a bit of a break too - not easy, until now! So, we packed our bags (and VW camper van) when our kids were 4 & 5 years old, said a tearful farewell to our family & friends and moved to the Vendee not knowing a soul - it was now or never!  

Our aim from the start was to offer parents a holiday where they knew their kids were safe, entertained, happy and having fun meanwhile ensuring mums and dads also got a holiday too.   So, we started 'Beach Holidays in France' in 2003 and have grown in strength year on year.  We are a family run company and now the kids are grown up they also work for us in the summer.  Emily (20yrs old) is bi-lingual and helps out with all the babysitting and Daniel (18yrs old) also bi-lingual, runs one of the weekend changeover teams ensuring everything is ready and perfect for clients arrival.  

We bought Le Mimosa in 2008 and had fun renovating it and stamping our mark on this beautiful detached villa. Then in 2011, one of our clients (who had holidayed with us for many years) fell in love with Le Mimosa as much as us. They put an offer in and in winter 2011, the ownership of Le Mimosa transferred over to Rachel, Neil and their two beautiful children.  The family spend as much time as they can in their holiday home but ultimately it's rented out during the summer for other families to enjoy it as much as they do.  When you book Le Mimosa, your contract will be with us as we will take care of you from the initial first contact right through to after sales care - something we have been doing successfully for 15 years on all our own privately owned homes. Please do view all our homes and see our fabulous 5* reviews by clicking on the tab above 'all our homes'. 

We don't claim to be 'luxury' as we know that's a matter of personal opinion but we do offer a comfy child-friendly holiday home, excellent facilities and a 1st class service. We have a 'passion for detail' and know that when you arrive you, and more importantly your kids, will be truly thrilled and excited with what we have install for them.....!  

We believe that it's not just our home, it belongs to those who come and visit too :)

Each year we are blessed to receive such fabulous reviews for our product and above all, our customer service and attention to detail.  Please do have a quick look at our wonderful reviews on our 'Guest Review' page by going to the tab at the top of this page. Our properties have been inspected by leading award winning holiday companies and as parents ourselves, 'kitted out' with what us mum's and dad's want (need) for a 'stress free' and relaxing family holiday!
We very much look forward to welcoming you to our home and meeting you and your family.

Je vous remercie et je vous souhaite de bonnes vacances.

Donna, Jay, Emily et Daniel
