Enjoy gourmet dining experiences with our new Chef Service!
We’re now offering our customers the chance to enjoy some unforgettable eats with our new Chef Service! Choose from booking a single sumptuous meal with a private chef for that special occasion, or hire a chef to cook your meals for all or part of your holiday - it’s as flexible as it is delicious.

A) Single Meal Service: A chef will travel to this villa and whip up a fantastic meal for you and your guests. The chef will arrive with all the necessary ingredients as well as the talent to turn them into something unforgettable. They’ll serve the meal and clear up afterwards - an easy and entertaining way to enjoy a top quality meal in your very own villa!

So why worry about self-catering when you can have everything taken care of?

Of course, before booking this service, we suggest you contact the property owner as they might already offer a similar cook or chef service in-house. To find out more simply visit www.oliverstravels.com/chefs.

Owner Profile

How long have you owned the property?
7 years

What was it about the property that you first fell in love with?
The charm of the hamlet it is situated in and the wonderful garden

For anyone coming to stay is there anything in the surrounding area they should...
Really do? Go to Saint Martin, Ile de Re
Really eat? The Oysters
Really see? The Dunes of Pilat near Arcachon. Amazing!

Lastly, what insider tip would you pass on about the property or the area?
Visit a vineyard in Les Touches Perigny which is very near to the house and purchase some bottles of Chante allouette. It is made in the same way as champagne but it costs a fraction of the price. There will be details about the vineyard at the house. Sample the local 'Pineau', the little brother of Cognac, just minutes from the house.

Region

With so much on offer, it’s a wonder the departments of Vendée and Charente aren’t bursting with tourists throughout the year. With Paris not too far off (so travel and a day trip to the City of Light are a breeze) you can still experience the quaint rhythm of the French countryside – especially if you’re thinking of staying in one of our holiday villas in Vendée and Charente. To tempt you to visit and give you some inspiration, we’ve put together this handy Vendée & Charente travel guide so you can make the most of your trip.

    Posted by Two happy families on 10/05/2018

    What can we say! What a beautiful house you have! We have all had the most amazing and relaxing time in this fantastic house which catered to every need of every member of our party! After a long drive from Spain for us and Guernsey for the other family, it was fantastic to relax in these beautiful surroundings and of course made even better that we could both bring our dogs. What a time they have had running in the fields chasing hares! Thank you for sharing your house with us!

  • Charming place

    We thoroughly enjoyed our stay in your lovely house. The weather was incredibly hot and we really appreciated the coolness of the house, the electric fans at night, and the many shady spots in the garden. It was so relaxing and great to have so much space to enjoy. (Gill, 19th-26th August 2016)

  • An excellent holiday in a fabulous place

    Posted by Jan M. on 23/09/2016

    I just wanted to say what a fabulous place you have and how much we enjoyed our stay. The house is really lovely and very well equipped. It was comfortable and so peaceful. As you say, the sunflowers add to the attraction. We found your ice cream parlour much to the children's delight and used your Boulanger - great recommendations. It has been an excellent holiday in a fabulous house. (Jan, 5th-12th August 2016)

  • A fantastic stay in a peaceful home
