What guests say...
"Fantastic stay at Oasis Les Jardins. We have just returned from a fantastic week at Sables d’Olonne. We are a family of four but we booked the 3-bed Sophora as we wanted a pool. It was totally worth the additional cost. The pool was warm, clean and safe, and my daughters were in it from 8am – 8pm every day. The alarm was a reassuring feature and the water was checked several times during our stay. The villa was clean, spacious and well equipped. There was a welcome pack with everything we needed for day 1 but I would recommend bringing additional cloths, washing up liquid, dishwasher tablets, bin liners and kitchen/toilet roll to save a supermarket trip for day 2. Our villa was at the far end of the site but a perfect spot for us – private and quiet. The staff on site were helpful and the shop stocked the basics. My daughters did the croissant and baguette run there in the mornings which was fun for them. We mainly ate in so did not try the on site restaurants. Christophe at Select Villas was super helpful from start to finish and I cannot fault the service we received from him. He made the whole process very straight forward, with clear instructions and maps. This place was a great find and we will be back!" Jenny H 2022
"We’ve just returned from France this evening and I wanted to drop you a quick line to say how much we enjoyed our stay at Oasis Les Jardins. The villa was superb and everyone very helpful and friendly. We all wanted to stay for longer and are keen either to return or perhaps try a similar villa in a different location. At any rate, I will definitely be recommending the villa and your company to my friends and family. Many thanks for all your help with the booking (and rebooking!) – it was definitely worth the wait!" Rachel F 2022
"Villa was quite hard to find, but once there it is a lovely place for a relaxing holiday around a pool in the sun. Very clean and well equipped, the only thing missing was matches to light the BBQ! The surrounding area is amazing, beaches very close by and a choice of supermarkets all a few minutes’ drive away. English speaking staff made the holiday even more enjoyable; we will definitely be back." Joanna S
"Thank you very much for everything. We were very happy especially with your service. The villa is excellent. The receptionist was very helpful. Our dog was very calm and happy thanks to the garden being enclosed. The villa was quiet, offered privacy and luxury with the garden and the pool. The on-site restaurant was also very good. It was a fantastic holiday." Karine V
