LA VENDEE


Situated in the beautiful département of La Vendée, our three properties offer
everything for a perfect holiday within easy reach. Each property has an information
binder available for guests with maps and leaflets showing many local attractions.
Below are some photos to whet your appetite!

The Vendée has a microclimate which means that the area enjoys up to 2600 hours
of sunshine a year. This is almost as many as the south of France and almost twice
as many as London! Well-established as a tourist area you will find activities to suit
all of the family. From a castle in Talmont-St-Hilaire and a tower in Moricq to a zoo
in Les Sables d'Olonne there really is something for everyone. All towns have local
produce markets, wonderful opportunities to try local specialities and soak up some
of the friendly Vendéen atmosphere. The summer also sees the area hosting many
music festivals and watersports competitions. Every four years the world famous
Vendée globe race sets off from Les Sables d'Olonne and the Vendée is regularly
featured in the itinerary for the Tour de France cycle race.

Situated in the southern reaches of the Loire valley, the Vendée has four main
wine-producing areas : Brem-sur-Mer, Vix, Pissotte and Mareuil-sur-Lay.
Visits and tastings can be arranged and most restaurants stock local wines for you
to enjoy.

For history buffs l'Historial de la Vendée is the place to visit. (http://historial.vendee.fr/)
Telling the long history of the area from pre-historic times to the present day there is
also a simulated helicopter ride over the Vendée, exciting for visitors of all ages.

Slightly further afield are the leisure parks of Futuroscope (www.futuroscope.com)
and Puy de Fou (www.puydufou.com) both 'must-sees' for the family.
For bargain-hunters, Cholet has a designer outlet - Marques Avenue with many popular
labels at reduced prices. (www.marquesavenue.com)



www.gitesausoleil.fr gitesausoleil.fr vendee gite cottage house rental location sandy beach



The Vendée boasts 140km of fabulous
beaches and with 2600 annual hours
of sunshine there'll be plenty of opportunity
 to enjoy them!
La Tranche-sur-Mer is just one of the many
family-friendly beaches.




If you prefer a quieter beach there
are also plenty to choose from
- this is Le Rocher.

Each town has regular daytime markets
throughout the summer season to give
you a flavour of local life. There
are also evening markets in July and
August. This is a selection of the fresh
produce available at Angles market.


La Rochelle and L'Ile de Re are within easy
 driving distance (under an hour) or why not
take the boat from La Tranche-sur-Mer
in peak season?
The company InterIles runs regular boats
 between La Tranche-sur-Mer, La Rochelle,
