Mike & Lin Sullivan, Chaille sous le Ormeaux, Vendée
We would like to thank you for the wonderful job you have done constructing our swimming pool. It was a very difficult project, due to the lack of access for cement lorries and the delivery of materials. Nevertheless, nothing fazed you and you overcame all the difficulties with calmness, great skill and innovative ideas. I was very impressed with the fact that you never skimped on any of the materials used, ensuring that the retaining walls were constructed to the highest specifications.

Your two workers, Keith and Gordon were also very obliging and a pleasure to work with. Thank you once again for a job well done. I would have no hesitation in recommending you as a hard working, honest contractor who can be relied upon to produce high quality workmanship at the agreed price within the given timescale. If you have any people who wish to see an example of your work I would be delighted to show them our super pool.

Terry & Brenda Hawker, L'Absie, 79 Deux Sevres
We would like to take this opportunity to express our sincere appreciation and satisfaction for the construction of the magnificent swimming pool and surrounding terrace at our home.

Friends who have either seen or used the pool have offered nothing but admiration and it is something which we, and for that matter you and your team, should be truly proud. We are also grateful for your attention to detail and the responses to our wishes during the contract and the fortitude, often in bad weather, of Keith and Gordon that gave us confidence. In all, the faith we placed in your company has certainly been repaid.

It follows that we would recommend Vendee Pools to anyone considering a similar venture and please do not hesitate to bring any potential clients here to view. If we may give advice in any such cases, it is to be prepared for a major engineering project and associated influx of materials that will surpass all ones expectations or imagination but at the same time to have trust, as very suddenly the silk purse really does emerge!
Roy and Hilary Humphries, Birkenhead, Liverpool

Richard & Janice Hall, La Caillere, Vendée
Thank you for the fantastic job you have done with our swimming pool and terrace. From the outset we were impressed with the care and attention you took to the project and the respect you showed to our property.

As a builder I recognised that the quality and quantity of materials you used were top spec and you always overestimated when there was any doubt.

We have ended up with a fantastic pool and terrace and we could not be more pleased with the result. We would highly recommend you to anyone who wants reliable contractor for their pool project and you are welcome to bring any prospective customers around our pool to have a look if you would like to.
Ken and Sharon Shield, Tavistock, Devon
Sharon and I can only say we are completely stunned by the finished pool, pool house and decking area. Although we had our own ideas of what we wanted you and your team guided and advised us of any changes that were necessary. Although the site was awkward, to say the least, we were impressed with the way the work was completed without fuss and with a minimal amount of disruption.

The project is a complete success and we would be more than happy for you to show any future clients our pool to enable them to see the quality of the work and also the way that the design was completed to suit the ground conditions and utilise the views.

Again, many thanks for completing a wonderful addition to our home.

Tina & Max Daler, Le Girardiere, Le Busseau, 79 Deux Sevres
We are just so, so thrilled with our new pool we can’t tell you. We so wanted to have it ready for our family get together in September and you made it happen for us with the result that everyone had a fab time.

The pool has had a great deal of use since then with hordes of children in it non-stop most days when we are here. We use it quite a bit too but probably make more use of the fabulous terrace, especially in the evenings when the pool lights and the terrace lights really make a superb ambiance.

We couldn’t recommend your company more highly, all the work you have done for us has been of the highest quality and you have really helped to transform our property here in France and allow us and our friends to thoroughly enjoy our time spent here.
Mike and Chris Armitage
We had an above ground inflatable pool for some years and decided on a more permanent structure so started looking around. As Vendee Pool was the most professional approach of our four selected potential suppliers we accepted their quotation and went ahead with the project.

Brian's team started the installation and, despite coming across a layer of solid rock just below the surface of the ground, a short while later the pool was installed and we were able to swim while it was still hot.

As part of his excellent approach to customer service Brian advised me how to over winter the pool and when it was uncovered this year the water was clean and in first class condition needing little preperation before swimming.

Altogether we are very please with our pool and that we chose Vendee Pools to do it.

Sean Gavin & Mary Coyle, Coex, Vendée
Four years ago we had a dreadful experience with a French pool company which cost us a huge amount of money and a great deal of stress and disappointment. It has taken us this long to face the issue again and we were nervous about approaching another pool company.

However, Vendée Pools have surpassed any expectation we could have had. Not only do we have a beautiful pool, clean and sparkling and useable, but the entire property has been transformed by the fantastic terracing areas and the pool and terrace lighting. We now have an incredible space that is safe and clean in which we and our friends can really enjoy ourselves.

I invite you to bring any prospective client to our property if you would like as I am sure they will be very impressed by what they see. Once again, thanks for a fantastic job.
Martin Broomfield (Chartered Builder & Surveyor), La Caillere, Vendee
A swimming pool project is a major undertaking and you most certainly need somebody who is going to deliver exactly what you want. There can be many problem areas and how do you go about deciding on a contractor from all those glossy brochures and smoothe talking salesmen. The answer I think must be research into a contractors completed projects and talking with past customers. Our decision to proceed with Vendee Pools was based on this and a competitive quotation. We were not disappointed with the service and the end product achieved. There are always going to be some problems to overcome in a construction project and Brian;s willingness to overcome these and his after sales service have to be commended. I would therefore have no hesitating in recommending Vendee Pools.

John & Barbie Parkyn, Nailliers, Vendée
We are so pleased with the finished pool and surrounds which make a magnificent addition to our property. The pool has already been used nearly every day and our family made great use of it on their recent holiday with us.

Throughout the time the pool was being constructed, we were impressed with the attention to detail and the excellent workmanship. Your workforce was always pleasant, tidy and a credit to their profession and to your company.

Thank you once again for your good work and we would have no hesitation in recommending your company to anyone who wants a reasonably priced and professionally installed pool.
