Family D  - 2 families[ 4 adults, 5 children 1 baby between them] August2012 Villa Oulmes was everything we hoped for. Pictures on website do not do it justice. Children's facilities made adults time so much more enjoyable. We loved the kitchen area , had everything we needed. Great evenings eating and drinking around the table [once the kids were in bed]. Space around the building is great. Loved the different seating/table areas to chose from. Pool was lovely and warm. Kids loved it and so did the adults.
The village Nieul has 2 boulangeries,  boucherie, a ‘spar’ type shop, a bar, restaurant, excellent  creperie,  post office, bank, chemist, doctors’ surgery, and flour mill, playing fields. Locals are very helpful and friendly. 
The Vendee has so much to offer with a great selection of attractions available -
