The apartment is beautifully presented with everything needed for an enjoyable stay.
The owners Emma and David are fabulous, so welcoming and helpful. They definitely go “above and beyond”. We will recommend them to anyone we know looking to stay in the area.
I recently attended one of David’s sausage making courses, thoroughly enjoyable and a great way to learn how to make the best sausages I have ever tasted, I can highly recommend this course to anyone.
As well as the course, I received a great welcome from David and Emma along with tea and homemade biscuits, what a bonus !
Thank you Emma and David, we came for a good rest and have had a lovely week. We will remember your first class hospitality and (of course) the excellent meals we have shared with you, they really have all been superb !! Many thanks, Mary and Richard

Emma and David have a lovely home set in a quiet but ameanable village with a shop, tabac, butchers, bakers and a friendly restaurant. The beaches are a short and easy 40 minute drive away. The house is stunning with lots of space and well equipped kitchen. The swimming pool was lovely and warm. Emma and David are fantastic hosts and are there in the background should you need any help which is very reassuring, a truly beautiful place. We had a relaxing stress free week. Amazing!!!

We couldn’t have asked for more, property is extremely clean and fully equipped with plenty of space for us all. Bedrooms being all ensuite was a huge bonus along with free WIFI throughout the property and garden. We had a BBQ which was prepared by David and Emma and was excellent, it also gave us a chance to ask about the area and what there was for us to see and do, as it was we spent just about the whole week enjoying the private garden and heated swimming pool. Although the property is in the centre of the village it is peaceful, there is an excellent bakers and butchers at the end of the road which we visited almost every day. Beautiful property and we would definitely recommend it and return.
A fabulous two weeks in a superb area with very comfortable accommodation. The property was as described and suited our needs adequately. The owners, Emma and David were perfect hosts, who provided us with more than we needed, especially daily access to their bicycles. We were made to feel more than welcome by them and the people in the village of Vix, we felt like natives as we left!!!! A restaurant in the village would be a bonus, however, Emma and David put on mean barbeque if asked!!!! I would definitely recommend this property to a friend or relative and already have !!!
Being our first visit to the Vendee we wanted a base from which we could explore the region, Vix fitted the bill perfectly. Thank you Emma and David
I absolutely loved my stay!! The property was modern, incredibly clean, spacious and had all the amenities you could want! The garden and pool area was just so delightful to be in, really beautiful! My friends and I rented bicycles and rode around the town of Vix, i can honeslty say it was stunning, i would definitely recommend!! The hosts Emma and David, were absolutely incredible, it really did feel like home away from home, they were so hospitable, welcoming and warm 🙂
I would 100% stay again
This was a lovely little getaway. The apartment was perfect, clean and really homely. Comfy beds, great shower and cute view from the windows in the lounge. The hosts Emma and David were a pleasure, and made sure we didn’t go without anything. Overall, it was a lovely and relaxing stay and I would definitely recommend the property to friends and family!
