Indoors & Outdoors

Indoors

Aire La Mirabelle features a large open plan sitting/dining/kitchen area, a mezzanine play area, plus five bedrooms and three bathrooms (two bedrooms and one bathroom are located on one side of the living space and the remaining three bedrooms and two bathrooms are located on the other).

The light and airy sitting area has two three seater sofas, a coffee table and units grouped around a log burner. What makes this area so wonderful is that the sliding doors leading to the garden can be opened up completely so that the room becomes part of the outside space. It’s perfect for when the children want to play outdoors.

The modern and spacious L-shaped kitchen has a range cooker and an extra large fridge as well as that all important Nespresso coffee machine! The dining area has a large oak table which can easily seat 12 with room for more.

The mezzanine play room overlooks the central living space.  With half height ceilings, it certainly makes for a good 'den' for the kids.  It is stuffed with toys, from train sets to building blocks, dolls house, dressing up clothes and shoes, to games and puzzles, plus much more.

There are two large comfortable sofas and a TV which has UK TV access, plus a DVD player. It has a safety gate top and bottom for the little ones, so a nice safe relaxing place just for the kids to enjoy.

The first bedroom (which is located on one side of the open-plan living area) is an en-suite double bedroom with a standard size double bed and sliding doors that lead onto the terrace.

This bedroom shares a ‘Jack and Jill’ bathroom with a triple bedroom. The bathroom has a shower over a luxurious Jacuzzi bath. The triple bedroom features a bunk bed and single bed, making it perfect for two or three children sharing.

The third bedroom (located on the opposite side of the open plan living area) is a double. It has an ensuite wet room so it's ideal for a guest with limited mobility. The wet room has been designed with disabled access in mind.

The fourth bedroom has two sets of bunk beds so can sleep four. It shares a Jack and Jill bathroom with the fifth bedroom. The bathroom has a shower cubicle and an indulgent Jacuzzi bath.

The fifth bedroom is a double bedroom and has patio doors that lead out onto the garden.

Parent points

  • The stairs leading down from the mezzanine playroom have a twist on the third step up and are gated from there. That means the last three steps are ungated so children need to be supervised at all times on the stairs
  • The ceiling in the mezzanine area is very low so grown-ups need to be careful not to bang their heads

Outdoors

Aire La Mirabelle is accessed via electric gates. Behind the gates, there’s plenty of parking for 4 or 5 cars.

The kids will enjoy the children's outdoor play area with swings, slide and sandpit (buckets and spades provided) as well as have hours of fun on the outside table tennis table. The south facing terrace is ideal for a relaxed family breakfast or an evening BBQ family get-together.

Partially laid to lawn, mature plants, trees, shrubs and flowers, surround the garden - there is garden furniture with extra chairs for a lazy afternoons reading under the olive tree. A chimney-style barbecue has been provided to ensure that you can cook outside in style, whilst enjoying your evening Pimm's on the terrace.

Children usually love to draw so, your kiddies should have tons of chalky fun with the huge outdoor chalk boards. They can get as creative as they like; sharing their designs with family and friends. All of the family can get chalky fingers together and spend some quality time, perhaps playing a Pictionary challenge or having a simple game of noughts and crosses. 

The heated and fenced private swimming pool measures 10m x 5m. The shallow end of the main pool has extra large steps - ideal area for youngsters to play in. The shallow end is only 3ft 6in deep, so young children can feel confident in the water.  Plenty of sun loungers and large parasols are provided around the pool area for shade. The swimming pool is fully enclosed and is protected by a lockable gate.

The swimming pool is surrounded by a 1.15 metre high made fence. It has vertical bars to meet with anti-climbing regulations. The swimming pool also has a self-sprung lockable gate. On top off these minimum requirements, coded padlocks  are also provided for extra peace of mind. 

The swimming pool is heated and a thermal cover is supplied to maintain heat overnight. The swimming pool is cleaned and monitored every other day to ensure the highest standards of health and hygiene is maintained at all times.

Fancy a little soothing indulgence? Why not climb into your own private hot tub and chill out as the warm waters help you unwind. A perfect place to chat and share your day’s holiday experiences; perhaps over a bottle of wine.

 


What's Around?

Aire La Mirabelle is ideally located just a two minute drive from the wonderful village of Angles which offers bars, cafes and restaurants. It's just ten minutes' to fabulous 'blue flag' sandy beaches and a short drive to lots of great attractions for the whole family to enjoy.


The village market, held on Wednesday and Sunday mornings in peak season, is an ideal place to stock up on fresh, local produce and is just a two minute walk from the property.


Located so close to the village of Angles, you can get to the village in minutes, in the morning to pick up your fresh baguette and croissants, or arrive early evening to a choice of great restaurants.


During July and August the village is host to many organised events such as firework displays and ‘marches de nuit', (night markets) where you can sit and enjoy ‘moules & frites' whilst the children dance the night away to a local band.


Air La Mirabelle is supremely well placed for access to all the very best of the region's attractions. The seaside resort of La Tranche sur Mer is almost on the doorstep, at less than a ten-minute drive away. Referred to locally as the Côte-de-Lumière (Coast of Light) the fantastic sandy beaches stretch along 13kms, and 8kms of them face south.

For the more energetic, the beach has a six-hectare area of water for people wishing to learn water sports. The "Cercle Nautique Tranchais" (Nautical Club) offers sailing, windsurfing, kite-surfing and sand-sailing.

The area is also superb for boating and surfing enthusiasts.


Here you can find clean, golden sands, a sunny microclimate (worthy of the south of France) and great family entertainment.

Not much further afield are the calm and scenic waterways of the Marais Poitevin and stunning vistas of vineyards, sunflowers and poppies, depending on the season.


If you have big kids looking for a spot of adventure, they won't have far to search. Within five minutes, they have a choice of racing round a karting course (www.vendee-kart.fr), swinging from the trees, on various heights (depending on age) up to 50ft above ground or exhilarating fun on the new water slides at the Indian Forest Adventure (www.indian-forest-atlantique.com).


If you fancy a fun-packed day out for all the family to enjoy then Puy de Fou is the place to visit. Wonder around villages from different eras and minstrels in the woods, watch gladiators doing battle and Vikings launching attacks on fortified castles! Marvel in the summer at one of the 28 evening or night shows with 300 fireworks per show and thousands of special effects (www.puydufou.com).


Whether you're an experienced cyclist or a leisure rider, this area has plenty of surprises in store for you. All along the 'Loire a Vélo' signposted bike trial, you can marvel at the stunning Loire countryside, visit châteaux & abbeys, stroll through quaint little towns & cycle through vineyards for over 110 miles! The owners can arrange bike hire and will have your bikes delivered and collected free of charge.

The Val de Loire Vineyards Tourist Trail - 40,000 hectares of ‘dégustation’ - The skills of the vine were introduced by the Romans, and are now one of the main assets of the Pays de la Loire. Sweet, dry, sparkling, white, red or rosé – every one of you will find just what you’re looking for among our prestigious AOC wines.

Saumur Brut, Savennières, Coteaux du Layon, Saumur-Champigny, Anjou Villages, Muscadet, Jasnières, Mareuil wines... From the Nantes area to Montsoreau, the Val de Loire Vineyards Tourist Trail extends you a warm welcome!


For a slightly quieter, but no less exciting day out why not visit beautiful La Rochelle? Here you can enjoy approx. 10,000 types of sea life at the Aquarium (http://www.aquarium-larochelle.com) or just enjoy wandering around the boutique shops before enjoying a supper French-style meal at one of the many pavement cafes.


The area around Angles is a gourmet's delight! The large fishing port of l'Aiguillon is just 10 minutes away. Early risers visiting the town's fish market (open every weekday at 5am) will be able to choose from a range of freshly caught fish, mussels, oysters, langoustines & gambas.

You will also find a comprehensive folder in the property listing restaurants, activities and local events, as well as plenty of ideas for entertaining the children throughout your stay. There is a huge write up of over 20 local restaurants that the hosts recommend visiting with the kids and if you want some 'adult time' they also supply the baby-sitting too!
