“Excellent holiday centre for sea, sand, sun and Vendee village culture.”
Reviewed 4 August 2016 for a stay in July 2016

A really lovely property in the heart of the busy village with all amenities and excellent restaurants within a short walking distance. There were just two things missing from the well equipped accommodation - wine glasses and a parasol, although the shady acacia tree certainly gave us cover for all meals outside. The Gites is suitable for families of all ages with a full programme of events happening in the village from classical concerts, to puppet shows, a circus, street markets and street dancing all with local music. The atmosphere is warm and friendly with great neighbours and a wine cave next door. The glorious beaches are only a short drive and there are many attractions for all ages both historic and entertaining. La Rochelle can be reached within and hour, La Roche sur Yon and Lucon much nearer. A really lovely place in which to spend time.

Many thanks for your great review! I'm not sure what has happened to the wine glasses, as there were some at the beginning of the season!

“Gite des Forges is a perfect place for a holiday base in the Vendee”
Reviewed 14 August 2014 for a stay in July 2014

We really enjoyed our stay. The Gite is equipped to a good standard particularly the kitchen. The outside seating area has a wonderful Mediterranean feel to it and the off road parking area is very useful. The wi-fi and TV facilities were very good too. Angles is a wonderful village with good local facilities and markets and the Gite is ideally placed to take advantage of them being very near the centre but still in a quiet location. Being next door to a wine cave was a great bonus! To improve the house information folder could be more detailed and the garden area needs development to make it more attractive.

“Fabulous little house in a wonderful village location”
Reviewed 7 September 2013 for a stay in July 2013

This is a beautifully renovated single storey house in a village setting. The village has several bakeries, butcher, local shop, church, pubs and restaurants. In the summer there are twice weekly markets. The house is equipped with everything you might need (except an iron). The garden is enclosed, however, there is a small gap between the gate and the house which meant we had to watch our 3 year old as he loved to escape.

“Beutiful little Gite in a graet location”

We have just returned from a week at Gite des Forges and loved it.
The Gite is in a great quite location just a two minute walk into the village of Angles, where you can find two great patisserie`s a boucherie and a couple of little super markets as well as a bank and pharmacy. Plus twice weekly markets.
There is a good size garden that the kids played in every night and a Wine cave right next door for the adults.
We had some lovely evenings after a BBQ just sitting outside with a glass of local wine relaxing.
The kitchen is very well equipped with everything you need for indoor cooking as well as BBQ.
Overall a superb week.

“Lovely little gite in a great location!”
Reviewed 28 August 2013 for a stay in August 2013

A lovely clean, light & airy gite in a great little town. It is well stocked with all the crockery & utensils that you'd need. The wine cave on the other side of the house was a bonus! Lovely bar and a couple of boulangeries close by. In a great location, close to fantastic sandy beaches and beautiful countryside that is ideal to explore by bicycle. Just perfect!
