About the Owner/Advertiser, Ms Avril Dixon

My husband and I have been living in the Vendee for over twenty years now. We run a small business a few miles away from La Saulaie and therefore we will be available to help should you need assistance in any way.

Year property purchased 1998
Why this location? 'La Vendee' ... known for warm sun and long golden sandy beaches!
La Saulaie is located in the 'marais', which is a flat expanse of land reclaimed from the sea, and which offers a setting that is both rural and maritime ... the peace and quiet of the countryside, whilst still being in close proximity to the beaches. The Vendee coastine stretches over 140km and the beaches are made of fine golden sand. There are many beaches to visit, each with its own particular character. We are a short ten minutes drive to the popular beach town of Saint Jean de Monts where there are a variety of activities for all ages. There is a 'kiddies club' on the beach with trampolines and bouncy castles, and cycling/roller skating paths stretch from one end of the beachfront to the other. Tennis courts, a tree-adventure park, golf course, health spa, casino, restaurants, bars and shops are all within easy access.
Unique benefits of property La Saulaie offers a peaceful retreat away from the resort town crowds, whilst just being a short drive to a whole array of activities and amenities. It is a private house set in private grounds with a private heated swimming pool. All of our rooms are large and spacious, enabling two families to holiday together without being crowded. The house has no immediate neighbours, so you will not be inconvenienced by anyone else's noise and, should you make a little noise yourselves, there will be no-one to complain! The driveway access is private and parking space is assured! Our Sunday arrival/departure day will enable you to miss the busy travel day of Saturday

The Owner Recommends

Lots to do!

Our home is located in the 'marais'/farmland area just on the edge of Saint Jean de Monts and there are lots of quiet roads for cycling or walking. A ten minutes drive will bring you to the Atlantic Coast and the resort town of Saint Jean de Monts, known for its golden sandy beaches, superb golf course and night life. The island of Noirmoutier is just a 20 minutes drive away, where you will find a large water park, Sealand park and a variety of seafood restaurants.

This is a wonderful property- clean and well maintained with everything you could possibly need. We had a great stay and would gladly return. Brilliant pool- well minded by the owners. Property located close to road but traffic noise didn't really bother us.
Owners are lovely- We met Avril on first day and Gerard came to clean pool every couple of days and is a lovely guy! They provide all the information you could need and provide phone numbers in case of any problems.
Close to lots of great beaches and towns. We found lots to do and some days it was lovely to just stay home.Amazing sounds from all the wildlife at night because of the rural nature of the property.
We would recommend La Saulaie and would be happy to holiday there again.
