What makes Villa Fontaine a great holiday rental
The location will suit everybody: tranquil but wth enough going on in the local area to appeal to all ages and stages. Older children can reach the beach by themselves, while little ones have the run of the beautiful enclosed grounds as well as the joy of a heated pool. It's an easy walk or cycle ride to La Flotte, recently added to the official list of France's 'most beautiful villages' and one of the most appealing places on this entire delightful island.
Anything to watch out for?
