The Owner Recommends

La Tranche-sur-Mer

The 7 km beach has surfing, wind surfing, body boarding and water skiing etc and has been awarded a blue flag. For those of you that don’t want to swim in the sea, La Tranche has just built a large indoor/outdoor swimming pool. Some of our clients have also brought their own boat and there is ample parking in the grounds of the cottages or you may berth at La Tranche for a reasonable rate. There is also bike, quad and motor bike hire nearby and numerous restaurants and shops and Casino. Fishing (sea, lake and river) golf, tennis and a host of other activities also within easy reach.
Les Conches is in-between La Rochelle (start of the famous Vendee Globe) and Les Sables-d’Olonne and is just 5k from La Tranche-sur-Mer.

La Rochelle

The gîte is just 35 kilometres drive from the delightful shops and quayside restaurants of La Rochelle. From the port, you can take to the water and visit Ile d'Aix - and even the famous Fort-Boyard. La Rochelle's wonderful Aquarium boasts 10,000 specimens from the Atlantic, the Mediterranean and the tropics (visit website for further information). With three million litres of water and 64 different aquariums.
La Rochelle also has a beach, zoo and great parks.
Wonderful to sit in a cafe near the harbour and people watch. Also some great boutiques to explore.

Ile de Re

A small pedestrianised island off of La Rochelle, pretty harbours, lovely beaches, great for cycling. Wonderful restaurants. Ile de Re is very popular.

Puy du Fou

Puy du Fou is where time stands still, and will be an instant hit with children and adults alike. You'll see villages from different eras, gladiators still doing battle and Vikings launching attacks on fortified castles! In the summer, there are 28 evening/night shows with 300 fireworks per show, 2000 digitally-controlled projectors, 1500 computerised fountains, 4500 costumes and many more special effects. There are minstrels in the heart of the woods and master falconers in the meadows.

Indian forest Adventure

The Indian Forest Adventure has marked trails in the forest, as well as 122 different challenges. Suspended on safety harnesses, you are able to climb, swing, dismount and even slide across the forest at a height of 20ft above the ground. There is also an adventure area for toddlers, with themed bouncy castles, a ball park, rock climbing and an inflatable park. This is an excellent day out for both children and adults and is just 15 minutes from our gîtes.

Les Conches

With its micro climate and long sandy beaches this part of France is now very popular for all types of holiday makers. Other places to visit on this coast are the Islands of Ile de Re, Noirmoutier, and St Nazaire (where the German wolf packs were based during the war).
For those of you bargain hunters, during the summer months there are plenty of Vide greniers (Attic sales) and music, shows and festivals in the neighbouring resorts. All within easy reach of Les Conches.

Parc des Floralies

The Parc des Floralies (under 10 minutes away) is open all summer. The park has a forest of oak and pine trees which cover seven hectares. During the spring, blooming tulips, narcissi, hyacinths, crocuses and amaryllis all produce the most wonderful scents!

Futuroscope

Great day for all.

We have just returned form a wonderful holiday at your property and want to thank yourselves for a lovely property which is in a perfect setting. Very close to the beaches which are great, the children absolutely loved it (as did the adults!). The property is clean, well equipped and quite spacious for our requirements. Plenty to do in the area, so much so that we did not have time to do it all, so will definitely be returning. Perfect holiday, and we have already recommended it to friends and family. Thanks again
