We have had a fantastic relaxing holiday. The house has been a great home from home!
We spent many of our days visiting the beaches, our favourites being La Tranche and La Terrière.

We’re all had a fantastic time here. The children have really enjoyed the pool, the sun has shone and it’s been wonderful and relaxing. Perfect!
Kieboom & Steur Families, August 2018
We were here with 2 adults and 5 young adults, we all loved the swimming pool, the ping pong table and the kids games. We had loads of fun and got amazing tan lines. There was one day with bad weather and we spent that day inside in front of the TV, and we have nothing bad to say about that! This is a great house to stay at, very comfortable and luxurious <3
We visited Coulon (The Green Venice of France). We had a 2 hour boat trip. Highly recommend this! We had a great time!
The youngsters wanted to visit the Indian Forest! They did the water jumps on a very warm day (37°). Fantastic!
Make sure to visit La Rochelle – lots of restaurants, nice harbour.
No comments on the house – Perfect!
Junius Family, July 2018
We enjoyed staying at Residence des Papillons! It is a peaceful and quiet house/home. The kids loved the swimming pool, the adults loved the summery evenings with a nice glass of wine.
The space and privacy – priceless!
