Holiday Home Description
This recently purchased property is coming to the end of a process of modernisation ready for the 2016 summer season - with all bedrooms, lounge, dining room and sun room being re-decorated and some new furniture and flooring being added.
The open plan lounge/dining room has two comfortable sofas and french doors out towards the rear garden and patio area. There is a TV with UK free to air TV channels, a DVD player and internet access as well as a large bookcase with lots of holiday reading. The dining table seats 8 guests.
The villa has four bedrooms - a double and twin room on the ground floor, and a second double and twin bedroom on the first floor. There are two bathrooms - with a large family bathroom on the ground floor (full-sized bath, separate shower cubicle and double sink) and a second shower room on the first floor. There are also two separate toilets in the villa.
The traditional kitchen has a built-in electric oven, gas hob, microwave and dishwasher, as well as enough crockery and cutlery for everyone. A washing machine is available in the garage utility area.
The garage also contains a selection of bikes for your use, an air hockey table, table football, lots of boardgames and DVDs.
To the rear of the house is a sunroom - an ideal place to relax at the end of a long day of sunbathing and sight-seeing - with wicker furniture and french doors out to the garden.
For al fresco dining, there is a patio table and chairs along with a barbecue and several sun loungers in the garden.
The garden is private - with hedges and fences surrounding all sides and a large lawned area for your children to play. There is also a 10m x 5m heated swimming pool in the garden. This pool has an electric rigid cover for the security of your children.

Port Bourgenay and Talmont Saint Hilaire
The beach of Veillon is great for families, with parking nearby and facilities on the beach. There is a very picturesque lagoon and spit head at one side of the beach and great waves for body boarding! The town itself holds lots of events throughout the summer months - with a weekly evening market, sailing events and golfing tournaments. There is also an interesting aquarium - Le Septième Continent and an artistic glass blower nearby.
5 minutes drive away is the bustling market town of Talmont Saint Hilaire, which has a ruined castle in the centre - open to the public - and with lots of fun activities for all ages, including medieval knights, jousting tournaments and birds of prey. The town also has many supermarkets, bakeries, restaurants and other shops.
Within 15 minutes is the Adventure Château at Avrillé, with its treasure trail and parkland, the Indian Forest Adventure Park at Moutiers les Mauxfaits which is great for children - with karting, paint balling, zip wires through the trees, pony rides and water slides, and the seaside resort of Les Sables d’Olonne, with its Zoo, casino, 5 mile beach and vast selection of restaurants.
The Puy du Fou Historical Theme Park is about an hour away and is well worth a visit - you will encounter Gladiators, Vikings, Medieval Knights, Musketeers and a fantastic Bird of Prey show - not to be missed!
For a quieter day out you can take a boat trip around the salt marshes at Les Sables d’Olonne, where you will discover the ancient art of salt panning and also see lots of local birds and small mammals.
Villa du Veillon is an ideal base for exploring the Vendée - in a great location for walking and cycling holidays.

Just returned from staying a week in this amazing property. Cannot say enough about its size and how well equipped it was. Everything needed for your home from home experience was provided and we were left alone during our stay to enjoy this lovely property. Pool perfect and garden was so private that it was brilliant for our family who ranged from 9 years to 79 years. ALL thoroughly enjoyed our stay here. Thank you!

The villa is in a lovely location, very quiet but within an easy drive to lots of amenities and places to visit. There was lots of space inside the villa and everything we needed in terms of kitchen equipment etc. The bedrooms were lovely and bright and decorated nicely. Some areas were slightly dated but I know this is being addressed this winter as the owners haven't had the property for long. We thoroughly enjoyed our stay here, the only slight negative was that the pool heater was broken which made it very cold and unusable on a couple of days. (The pool heater has now been replaced ready for the 2017 season)
