About Allison And Stephen Wilden
My wife and the family, Jessica and Jack love traveling to France for our holidays, we find the French people very welcoming and the country full of fantastic places to visit.
Allison And Stephen Wilden purchased this Barn in 2006
Why Allison And Stephen Wilden chose Le Bernard
We had been to many places in france, but found this area one of the best in regards of weather, beaches and things to keep the children very happy and entertained, we didn't want the hussle of busy resorts but the traquility and natural wildlife right on our door step feel, and we found it with this barn, surrounded with sweetcorn fields two large ponds and ousing wildlife such as wild boar, roe deer, ragondin, praying mantis, glow worms ect.
What makes this Barn unique
The piece and quite of the fantastic French countryside, right on natures door step with a front row seat to sit back and watch the wild life and within 15 minutes of the busy seaside resort of La Tranche sur mer!! The barn was built with ancient stone from the old monasterys of Moutiers and retain a lot of the original features of the old cattle barn, with walls nearly two foot thick the barn keeps mostly cool in the summer.Inside feels very big and airy and is very homely. We love waking up in the morning and having breakfast outside on the east facing decking with the sun shining down on us, in the evening its out on the front for the evening BBQ whilst watching the sun set...Fantastic.

It was a real home from home everything thought of for a truly enjoyable stay, will definitely be planning on going again. Thank you!
We had a great week here in what is an absolutely beautiful and very well presented barn. All the key activities(great beaches, water parks etc) are reachable by short drive. Steve was great and very responsible. We hope to come back sometime soon
Allison and I are happy you had a great time at our barn and you’re welcome back anytime ❤️.
The property is amazing. The location is fantastic. We had a great holiday. Thank you so much Stephen and Alison.
Lovely converted barn. Ideal getaway in the vendee.
Really enjoyed a 12 night stay at the barn. Very comfortable & spacious in the heart of quiet countryside but within less than 15 min drive to the coastal towns and beautiful sandy beaches. We loved the comfortable lounge area with large screen TV and the modern kitchen area that has all the equipment you might need. The decking area is also ideal for enjoying the sunshine. We enjoyed day trips to Puy du Fou theme park and Futuroscope. La Rochelle is an hours drive and worth a visit. Definitely the attraction to the Vendee are the golden sandy beaches and there are numerous to pick from for swimming and water sports. You definitely need a car to get about but if you don't mind that and want peace and quiet then the barn is ideal. The only issue we experienced was access to the WiFi that was less accessible than we would have liked. Hopefully the owner will sort that as it wouldn't take much to improve.
Overall this is a very nice gite and we would be happy to stay there again if we return to the Vendee.
We are really glad you enjoyed our barn and the local area.
The wifi is a issue we are having difficulties with at the minute moment and are taking steps to resolve these.
Charming, well-equipped barn
We had a lovely time at the barn, a nice balance between seclusion and good access to the main road and the sights of the area.
Barn was spacious and well equipped and having two separate outdoor areas made it feel even bigger.
We're so glad you had the holiday you required, we know and understand that a holiday is something that you look forward too,need and to remember.
The holiday we were hoping for
The lovely property gave us just the holiday we were looking for. It was comfortable and very easy to live in. Everything worked as it should, including the wifi. We loved watching the birds and wandering along the paths nearby. The weather was super, we visited a different beach on each of our 8 afternoons, some sandy, some with rock pools, we paddled and sat in the sun. Many thanks to Stephen for answering my questions so patiently, for allowing us to book mid-week and for the wine on arrival
We are so glad it was the holiday you was looking for and you enjoyed our barn in which we try and make your stay a most memorable one for all the right reasons, you're more than welcome back.
The nearest beach is 10 minutes drive away near Longville sur Mer. All beaches are golden sandy beaches which are child friendly and safe, at low tides some of the beaches offers rock pools. Also some have small food huts on the back of the beaches. All the beaches are lined with miles of Pine forests and trails for walking and bike riding.
Brand new water park just 1 minute from the barn.
With France rapidly becoming one of Europe's most popular golfing holiday destination and offering over 25 of Europe's 100 courses, it's no wonder golfers are now choosing France over the traditional Spanish resorts for exceptionally high standard, competitive and well managed courses.
There is a good golf course 20 minutes away.
