The Owner Recommends

All Ready and Waiting For You

A helpful comprehensive folder lists local restaurants, both child-friendly and 'just for the grown-ups', Top 10 activities to do with the kids, plus maps of the area, best beaches to visit and lots of details regarding local attractions to enjoy plus much more. Excellent for planning your days out (and not finding the best activity on the last day!) and a great read over a glass of wine!

In and Around the Village

Beau Rivage is ideally located just a 2 minute walk to the wonderful village of Longeville sur Mer with all of its great amenities, and just a 5 minute drive to wonderful sandy beaches and a short drive to lots of great attractions for the whole family to enjoy. The villa is only a 2 minute stroll from the centre of the village, which has a large street market on both Monday and Friday mornings in the months of July and August - an excellent opportunity to sample much of the locally produced food, including cheese, meat, fish and wine. The village of Longeville sur Mer has an Office de Tourisme, a Post Office, banks, a hairdresser, a beauty salon, florist, pharmacy, cafes/bars and restaurants, 2 butchers, a fishmonger, a fruit and vegetable shop and of course a cave for you to purchase local wine. There is also a 'Hyper' supermarket, just on the outskirts of the village, 5 minutes away by bike!

The Wonderful Sandy Beaches Just Minutes Away!

Beau Rivage is less than 5 minutes by car from the famous Vendee Coast - referred to locally as the Cote-de-Lumi (Coast of Light). The fantastic sandy beaches stretch along 13kms, and 8kms of them face south. The main beach at La-Tranche-sur-Mer is ideal for families with children. It is approved as a "Kids' Station", which means that the resort is a safe environment for children to play in. It also has specialist equipment and entertainments which specifically cater for families. For the more energetic, the beach has a 6-hectare area of water for people wishing to learn water sports. The "Cercle Nautique Tranchais" (Nautical Club) offers sailing, windsurfing, kite-surfing and sand-sailing. The area is also superb for boating and surfing enthusiasts. La-Griere-Plage (15 minutes): perfect for those who prefer quieter beaches but still like their creature comforts! The beach is near the resort of la-Tranche-sur-Mer, but even in the height of summer, it offers superb sand with a less frenetic atmosphere. Local cafes do a roaring trade in Brioches Vendeenes, a mouth-watering cross between bread and cake.
