Our time at Villa La Brise was memory that will be renewed I hope in the future. Our grown children, who travelled from oversees to spend the weak with us were overwhelmed by its position and views and facilities. Eating on the terrace, playing garden games, swimming in the cove below. They took it in turns to walk the ten minutes to the patisserie for bread etc every morning.
The bedrooms were of the highest standard, all with views over the estuary leading to the port of St Nazaire.
We as a family believe this to be the best and most relaxing holiday ever, and we thank David for his welcome and assistants when required.
This is the first time we have commented on any holiday stay.
Our stay was during the most perfect summer month of July.
We now have a family photo montage on our hall wall to remind us of the most perfect holiday.

This house and not the least, the location, is fantastic in every aspect. Our family loved it, we wished we never had to leave and we are all longing back. The house itself, with a gorgeous ambience and interior decoration, the seaview, the hamam, the equipment, all was nothing but perfect. Furthermore David was the most generous and helpful host you could ask for. We are so happy to have had the opportunity to rent this amazing house and we surely want to come back again. If you are searching for a memorable vacation, suitable for all ages or just for grown ups, don’t hesitate ! This will be what you are looking for, I promise.
Die Villa hat sich für unsere Bedürfnisse - Zusammentreffen der Verwandtschaft plus Familienhund - hervorragend geeignet, auch da sich auf dem weitläufigen Grundstück mehrere Rückzugspunkte befinden. Die ganze Anlage war so schön, daß wir eigentlich den ganzen Tag und den Abend (mit Blick auf`s Meer) nur dort verbringen wollten. So mussten wir selber kochen.... :-) Der unterhalb der Villa liegende Strand war meistens recht leer und die Franzosen haben es zum Glück mit dem Hundeverbot dort nicht so streng gesehen.
Wir haben mit 3 Generationen einen wunderbaren Urlaub verbracht. Die Ausstattung des Hauses lässt keine Wünsche offen. Das Haus und die Lage sprechen für sich, die zahlreichen Fotos des Hauses und der Umgebung, welche in der Hausbeschteobung zu finden sind, „lügen“ nicht, es ist tatsächlich so schön ! Die Vermieter haben uns sehr freundlich empfangen, wenn es Wünsche gab, würden diese sofort erfüllt. Absolut zu empfehlen !
Villa La Brise recently had the pleasure of welcoming a Crew Captain from the Royal Caribbean and we were therefore able to obtain special permission to film the largest liner in the world - the Symphony of the Seas – before its official launch at the dry dock at STX France Saint Nazaire. .. I would like to share this incredible moment with you !

Would you like to rent La Brise for small works seminars, business meetings or even a training course ?
There’s nothing very scintillating about finding yourself in a computer salon or meeting room... it’s always more pleasant and stimulating to animate a works session in a setting like La Brise, right in front of the ocean.
In addition, as well as the quality services offered at the villa, from the comfort of bedding to the relaxing and beneficial hammam/Turkish bath sessions at the end of the day, we have all the equipment the seasoned seminarian would need.

We would highly recommended villa La Brise to anyone visiting the St Marc area. There is a truly authentic feel about the place and a lot of love and effort has gone in to creating it. Everything is on site, bikes,games,equipment for the beach etc.... The view from the garden area is spectacular and the village of St Marc is a few minutes walk along the coastal path. David, our host,will definitely be seeing us again in the future.
A SPA manufacturer chose Villa La Brise for its commercial film.
The villa did not keep the SPA, it prefers its hammam !

We went to see the enormous MSC Meraviglia which went off to sea for a second round of testing.
The ship, built by STX, is the largest liner ordered by a European shipowner ...
It came out of its dry dock at 6.50 am yesterday morning, April 28, to take advantage of the high tide. The MSC Meraviglia, the biggest ship ever ordered by a European shipowner, left Saint-Nazaire on Thursday to carry out its first trials at sea.
Built at the STX shipyards, the ship embarked with 350 workers and technicians on board. The objective is to carry out a battery of tests in open sea before its delivery at the end of May. Its return is scheduled for Sunday at Saint-Nazaire.
Commissioned by the Italian-Swiss ship owner MSC Cruises, the liner, 315 meters long and 43 meters wide, will accommodate up to 5,700 passengers on board.
The MSC Meraviglia is also the first of a series of eleven ocean liners that the shipowner is going to construct over the next few years at the STX shipyards at Saint-Nazaire and at its Italian competitor (and likely future owner) Fincantieri.
The twin brother of the Meraviglia, named MSC Bellissima, was also ordered from the STX shipyards and is scheduled to be delivered in the spring of 2019.

Here is the virtual tour of the villa !

Bon voyage !

GEMO, formerly ERAM, chose La Brise to shoot its women’s ready-to-wear campaign for Spring 2017. Visit one of the Follow Me boutiques (Nantes, Vannes and Bordeaux) glance around, look up and you’ll find some nice and familiar photos on their walls ... Something to watch out for !
At the exit of Saint-Marc-sur-Mer, the road ends there and there is a cul-de-sac.
To ensure the continuity of the trip, it would have been necessary to go through private grounds housing splendid villas from the 19th century, including the famous Georama manor.
The owners were not made to crop parts off of their little corners of paradise however ; so pedestrians, joggers and cyclists turn around here, or return to the road to go a little further along the Douaniers path towards Pornichet. The majority linger for a taste of the panorama, probably the most beautiful on the entire Nazarene coast. Fifteen meters high, the cornice is covered with bushy, Mediterranean vegetation ...

We wish you all the best for this 2017 New Year.
Please note that the villa is open all year round. Come and spend a short weekend with friends or family, let yourself be guided by the pretty coastal path that will take you to Saint-Marc-sur-Mer or Pornichet and treat yourself to the delights of the sea that la Halle offers. Stop at the SPA at the Castle at Tourelles to take a wonderful moment relaxing then come to warm yourself at the real fire and fire place at the villa.
Take time to find yourself, around a good table, with friends or family, this winter or next spring ...
Here is the new film of La Brise shot this month, December 2016.
In a small boutique in Nantes, this pretty aluminium base lamp, in 1930s design style, is going to find its perfect spot in our living room. Thank you Mira.
The big transatlantic liners passing in front of La Brise will not longer have any advantage over it...
We have installed a IP68 led strip lighting band under the guard rail, which is controlled from inside the house.
At night on the terrace, you can contemplate the ocean just as if on a large ocean liner !
Despite our expectations, we did not uncover the name of the house under the facing on east gable.
This gave us a good opportunity to offer La Brise a pretty fresco for Christmas !
It took us about thirty hours of work and a little research to find the mosaics with the most authentic colours ...
We are very happy with the result !
