The Owner Recommends

The Vendee

The Poitou-Charentes / Vendee / Vendee region. The Vendee is the 2nd sunniest department in France, second only to the Cote d'Azur. Famed for its beaches, the Vendee boasts 150km of coastline, there are beaches to suit all tastes, wild and deserted like La Terriere, commercial town beaches such as Les Sables D'Olonne, surfing and windsurfing beaches such as Les Conches and those of you who enjoy birdwatching will be right at home at L'Aiguillon and on the lowlying Marais Poitevin. It goes without saying therefore that seafood restaurants are many and varied. The Vendee is also home to the third most popular theme park in France; the wonderful Puy du Fou, set in hundreds of acres of beautiful countryside re-enactments of the 100 years war, Viking invasions and Roman games are available each and everyday throughout the summer months, and only 45 minutes drive from La Grange. For those of you with a quieter holiday in mind the area to the South East is a must. The 'Venise Verte' is a huge area of treelined inland waterways ideal for birdwatching and just messing about in boats: The Mareuil sur Lay area is the centre of the local wine producing region, La Grange is located within 10 minutes drive of 20 Vineyards and walking distance from the largest and most successful. Mareuil itself has a swimming pool, tennis courts, fishing pontoons, boat hire as well as the usual restaurant facilities and beautiful Romanesque Church.

We had a wonderful week at this beautiful gite and were made very welcome, from the moment we arrived. The facilities were fantastic and the children enjoyed the pool and table tennis in particular! The location enabled us to visit several lovely beaches during the day, and we also enjoyed sampling the local wines!! Thankyou for a lovely break!

We had a lovely family holiday July/August 2017, with 4 grandchildren, the Gite was spotlessly clean,spacious and very comfortable, the photos do not do it justice. The owners,Philip and Maria were very kind, helpful and informative. The pool and garden are well maintained with play areas for the children. Good location to explore the Vendee, 30 minutes from the coast as well as water parks, horse riding and adventure parks.

We stayed the first week in August with 3 teenage children. The gite had everything you could need and with a swimming pool - what more do you need.

The gite has been tastefully refurbished and each room has artwork painted by the owner which adds it's own special touch. There's plenty of space so you do fall over each other and plenty of outside space for the children to enjoy.

The owner has provided leaflets with different places to visit and activities. We felt this was a lovely touch.

We had a great time and would definitely recommend it.

Good points
A lovely property that comfortably caters for 6 people. A great location for venturing around the vendee area. The owners Phil and Maria are great hosts and were always available for any questions we had or even if we just wanted to chat. Overall we had a great 2 weeks and would recommend the property and the area to to friends and family.
