    A beautiful week’s holiday; the house is perfect as a base, being well equipped for all our needs plus loads of extras! Put Du Fou was amazing, La Tranche Sure Mer beach lovely with a playful sea. O’Gliss waterpark was enjoyable. We cycled, played in the pool, played table tennis and pool, read books from the book shelf, and BBQd most nights. Perfect!

    A wonderful week, beautiful house and lovely surroundings. Puy Du Fou, just over an hour away, a must see. We spent an interesting 2 hours in “Green Venice”, La Rochelle always lovely. The English Pub is great, reasonable prices, and if you have something special to celebrate Les Macis in the town is well worth a visit. This house has been a comfortable homely stay and very well equipped. Star Gazing and shooting stars on our last night was a perfect ending.

    What a beautiful spot, the house is fantastic – so spacious and homely and you have thought of everything; the house so well equipped, felt like home. The grounds are gorgeous; so quiet and peaceful. We have enjoyed exploring the area on bikes and in the car; the sunflower fields are stunning. The pool here is gorgeous and very relaxing in that area. Really would have liked to stay longer.

    Just arrived home after our fabulous week at wonderful Villa Moulin. It was everything we could have hoped for and much, much more. The spacious accommodation for our family of nine was perfect and the best outdoor space ever. The big kids enjoyed it as much as the little kids! We were all sorry that the week was over too quickly. The weather was fantastic which made it all the more enjoyable.

    We are three families (four under 4) and this has been the best equipped house we have stayed in. It really is like staying at someone’s home with all of the thoughtful touches. We have only left the house once in a week as everything we could have wanted is right here! It’s been a fabulous week!

    I just wanted to drop a note to say how fantastic your house is. We’ve had the most wonderful week, and all felt like we were staying in someone’s home. There are so many thoughtful touches, it really did make things much more enjoyable. We would really like to stay again next year!

    For the first time, I’ve taken a 2 week holiday in years, I could not have picked a more relaxing place. The house feels like a home away from home. Beautifully decorated. I never once felt like I had to go far to find something. La Rochelle, Isle De Re, Puy Du Fou, all in striking distance. My highlights were BBQs by the house, doing the Puy Du Fou, seeing Harry finally catch a decent fish (10+ pounds) and stargazing at night.

    Thank you once again for sharing your lovely home with us. This was the conclusion of our Golden Wedding celebrations – a holiday with wonderful friends, Everything went well.

    We’ve very much enjoyed our holiday at Le Moulin. We all enjoyed the pool and Grandad & Dad enjoyed the fishing; plenty of carp caught. The Moulin is great with everything here – we’ve also had stonking weather (no rain at all).

    What a beautiful place to stay! It is quite simply stunning; everything you need is here and everything has been thought of. The lake area is very pleasant and you feel like you are miles away from anywhere. The pool was well used as well as “the beach”. This is such a peaceful location – so easy to relax.

    Beautiful well equipped Villa in a lovely location. Inside and outside is kept to a top-class standard and there is entertainment and games for all ages. Added Bnus- the heated indoor pool that we used every day. Everyone enjoyed the outside pool table and table tennis and darts. Lovely gardens especially to be able to stroll down to the lake to feed the friendly ducks. A return visit is a definite.

  1. The Pringle Family
    23rd July - 6th August 2016

    Our first visit and part of a group of 10; have a wonderful and memorable experience. The facilities were great and we enjoyed jumping in the pool. It was great to see the beautiful scenery surrounding the villa. We enjoyed seeing new places; Puy Du Fou is a must. O’Gliss park was amazing and Normoutier water park was great. Overall it was an amazing holiday that we will never forget. Thank you and hope to be back again soon!

    Our first visit to The Moulin de Guinche. What a wonderful slice of utopia. The gardens & pool, lake and house are magical. Slaughtered my son at (Garden) chess, slept like a baby despite the hot weather and will take away great memories and a relaxed de-stressed persona. Thank you.

    Just sitting on the veranda in the evenings and watching the pines and lime trees blow in the wind has been so wonderful. The garden is so magical; could get lost in there for a week, and the house is beyond comfortable. Everything here is so much more than you would need to be comfortable and its wonderful. Thank you so much for putting so much effort into this place and making it the retreat that it is.

    June 24th - July 1st 2016

    Although we had grey sky’s from midweek we have still had a good holiday; went to Fervent - lively walks and scenery also Fontenay but the best was Puy Du Fou. The house is great; it has all you need and the pool was warm. Good games, great garden and lake. Home from home; will miss this place!

  1. The Huscroft Family
    28th May - 4th June 2016

    Our 11 year old grandson lived at the lake; once he realised the elusive huge carp would remain evasive he was happy to catch the smaller crucian carp. The swimming pool and outdoor games have been used; those family members needing rest and time had penalty of opportunity in these wonderful surroundings. The Marais Poitevan including a boat from Arcais have really been our only adventures. I am sure a return visit will be in our future plans. Thank you.

    August 22nd-29th 2015

    We have been here for a week with our children and grandchildren aged 5, 3 and 1. We have all enjoyed the amount of space in the living area. Favourite things have been swimming and feeding the dicks and favourite outings to Parc Pierre Brun, The Mervent Zoo, and boating at Maillezais where we saw otters and a heron. All in all a very good holiday.

    Having spent numerous holidays over the last 35 years on the Vendee coast, to find this wonderful area of peace and tranquility has been perfect for all our family.

    The welcome we received from Penny was excellent and made us feel comfortable and relaxed from the moment we arrived and the house was a joy to behold! Perfect for everyone to have their own space for those quiet moments when necessary when three generations holiday together. The garden gave us so many spots for competitive games or just hiding and chilling.

  1. Jackie & Ed Ashton from Guernsey
    September 5th 2015

    We really enjoyed our time here - particularly Ed who made the most of the fishing which included a massive grass carp and several very large carp caught on sweetcorn.

  1. Jones Family from Blandford St Mary
    August 2015

    From the moment we arrived and were welcomed by the lovely Penny till we left Saturday morning, we enjoyed the peace and comfort on offer to the full. A truly lovely setting for a very special holiday with all our family who I know enjoyed it as much as us.

    The layout of the house suited us perfectly, with our girls, their partners and children downstairs and us enjoying the peace and quiet upstairs! We all enjoyed the pool to the full, and loved the fact that we could sit quietly reading on the balcony or in the grounds while the kids were being as loud as they liked in the pool without disturbing anyone. What a great arrangement.

    We will all highly recommend your home to our many friends who regularly holiday in La Belle France. Thanks again.

    August 2014

    A wonderful house; we have never been in such a well equipped & clean house. Fishing was great, my sons had carp from 7lbs to 15lbs and I had 8lb. There was so much to do and the grandchildren loved the pool and chess and we taught nan to play pool. Two places to visit as a must are La Rochelle & PuyDuFou. Thank you for a great holiday and we hope to be back next year

  1. Killen Family from Cumbria and Cornwall
    July 2013

    The family had two fantastic weeks here; Blazing sun all day, BBQs and meals for 10 around the kitchen table, fishing in the lake and cooling off in the pool. Many great memories have been made! We all agree we would love to come back!!

  1. Walker and Graham families from Newcastle/Cramlington
    August 2012

    Both our families had a brilliant two weeks here. The kids have loved the pool and especially feeding the ducks and goldfish. A beautiful house and gardens. It was difficult to leave to go out anywhere. Lots of special memories!!!

  1. Returned yesterday (Oct 2012) from The Moulin.
    Had a great holiday, 5 adults and 1 x 3.5 yr old.
    We would like to record that this has been the best rented property we have ever used and we have had many all over the world.
    We would like to thank you for the efforts put into making it a "home from home", particularly since my wife is EXTREMELY particular.

  1. One bad note - kids did not want to come home !

  1. The fishing was great fun, I had all family members fishing everyday - catching the roach (perfect examples of roach - I must add) with my ten year old and myself catching a small carp each. Early mornings showed signs of much bigger fish. The pool was great, again used everyday - Also, the beach area - The garden, I know and enjoyed every bit of it.

  1. Not enough can be said about your house - it made us feel instantly welcome and the quality of the fixtures etc fell way above our expectations. It really is a credit to how French Holiday homes should be done. The little things like the balcony, overlooking the garden and having the confidence for the big people to sit in the kitchen and keep an eye on the little people in the garden - made all the difference.

  1. Thanks again and be rest assured, we have told plenty of people about our wonderful holiday - you're sure to get some business back in return!!

  1. We would like to thank you for allowing us to use the 'Moulin De Guinche' for our holiday. We have not been to France for some 17 years and forgotten what a beautiful country it is. The 'Moulin De Guinche' provided us with the prefect base. It looked good on the website but far exceeded our expectations. We lacked nothing and your attention to detail was much appreciated. The carp proved to be too canny for us, but we did manage to catch a few small specimens and lots of roach. The weather was great and we ate outside most of the time. We all enjoyed the pool, especially the grandchildren.

  1. We all had a brilliant time in your lovely house in France. Hannah (6 months) in particular had a fantastic time in the pool and her Dad spent hours down at the lake with his fishing rod. He caught a large number of smallish roach but despite seeing never managed to entice the big carp to take his bait! I spent a lot of time exploring the hundreds of miles of quiet roads on my bike; the area is ideal for anyone interested in cycling.

  1. I felt that I had to let you know what a wonderful holiday we had. A week wasn`t long enough. The house was perfect; how envious we are of you all. Do all visitors want to move to France after a holiday there?After holidaying in the Vendee (6 times now) we always come home wanting to move out there.

  1. We found the location to be ideal for touring up and down the coast and spending one day sightseeing/beach – having the next day fishing and lounging around the pool.

  1. This is a lovely house; we have really enjoyed our few days here. Its so nice to stay somewhere that is as comfortable as being at home.

  1. Everybody caught fish and the fishermans "the one that got away" is at least 18lbs!!!

  1. Everyone enjoyed their holiday. You will not be disappointed.
