Welcome to Belle Azure

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....!!!

"An excellent property which more than met our expectations. The villa is very comfortable, tastefully decorated, extremely clean and is very well equipped. It was ideal for two small families or one large family. The spacious, enclosed garden was perfect for those with young children and the table tennis, basketball hoop and table football were a real hit with the bigger kids! We also appreciated the various toys, DVD's, sport & beach equipment provided for our use"

"The location of the property is great, its easy to walk to all the local amenities and of course the nearby little beach where the kids can swim and learn to sail. A little further is the ocean beach and La Faute where there are more shops, restaurants and cafes" 

 "All in all a wonderful villa, with a genial owner and an excellent service team - all of which ensured we had a great holiday. Many thanks"

"This is a great big thank you from all of us for the most wonderful holiday we have ever had.  We weren't quite sure from the brochure what Belle Azure was like, except that it was obviously the right size and proximity to the beach.  The house is absolutely lovely, a beautiful home with everything you could wish for.  There were enough items to occupy each of us for a month if the weather had been unpleasant.   Table-tennis in the garage and the basket mounted outside improved all our ball skills.  As it was, we enjoyed a very pleasant sunny week, visiting the local beach with the children most mornings, continuing on to the main beaches in the afternoons.  When it was really hot walking to the beach, we diverted through the pine forest.  The waves made it enjoyable for everyone and the water pleasantly warm.  We enjoyed the patio and the barbecue.  Due to the skill of the husbands of our two daughters we only ate out occasionally.  On the final night we visited the local fairground attractions which gave much amusement to us all and quite a challenge for those who dared!"

"The local supermarket is barely two minutes walk along the road, the boulangerie a bit further on towards the end of the High Street and the night street market was a definite hit with us all.  The local people were friendly and helpful and we cannot think of one word other than how excellent everything was"

"On arrival, we were greeted by Mr et Mme Caillaud who made us feel very welcome and showed us round.  We were impressed, and so too were Beth and Leanne aged 7 and 5  who loved their room and sleeping arrangements, they instantly started to make good use of the garden furniture. We were all immediately feeling very comfortable and that is exactly how it was for the whole of our holiday"

"I also wanted to say thank you to you Susan, for giving us all the right information and details at the right time as well as being generous with your time to tell us about the location and making sure that we were happy.  It is very rare these days to find companies who do more than just getting a signature on a contract.  We were delighted with how you arranged everything and kept in touch.  We have already been telling our friends what a marvelous time we had and will be happily recommending the agent and Belle Azure to all"

"When booking the agent was very helpful, answering all our emails promptly.  We were attracted by the pictures and descriptions on the website and found them to be an accurate reflection of this spacious  property.  The kitchen was fully kitted out and there were a lot of extra activities for children especially.  We went in June and L'Aiguillian was very quiet.  A car would be useful to visit the villages up the coast and inland.  We enjoyed using our bikes to explore the many cycle routes in the area, both directly from the villa and a short drive away.  There is a small artificial beach close by (excellent for toddlers), but the beach on the sea is in the adjacent village of La Faute sur mer which is about 20 min walk from the villa.  The markets which are on at various times in the week are wonderful and the fresh seafood was delicious.  Highly recommended."
