"We had an absolutely fabulous holiday between biking, surfing, beaching, barbequing, and trying to buy the best shell fish and prawns for the barbeque"

"The property truly exceeded our expectations. It was spacious, superbly equipped and in a wonderful location. We have been holidaying in France, now, for several years. In terms of Value For Money, Le Pavot easily exceeds anywhere else we've stayed. We will be booking again - very soon!"

"We had a great time thank you. The pictures on the website do not do the villa justice. It far exceeded expectations"

"The weather was glorious however the best feature of all was the location, style and standard of your villa with added feature of a stunning swimming pool"

"The situation was perfect both quiet but via the cycle paths giving easy access to the town and beach"

"The beach itself was fantastic especially using body board. Though the weather was nice the fact that the pool was heated made all the difference"

St Malo: 295km
Cross Channel Ports to use are St Malo, Caen, Le Havre or Cherbourg. St Malo is the easiest and involves only a short drive of a little over three hours on good roads. The drive from Calais can take up to eight hours and is not recommended.

The best route generally is to get onto the N137 as soon as possible, heading south signposted Nantes then La Rochelle until you see signs for La Roche-sur-yon, and then La Tranche.

The roads from Calais and the other ports are improving each year making the longer drives more viable. I believe Calais can now be done in under 6 hours.
