The Vendee region

Situated on the Atlantic west coast of France, the Vendee is becoming one of France's most sought-after holiday destinations. Its unique combination of glorious coastline and diverse countryside make it perfect for beach lovers and nature enthusiasts alike. It offers a taste or 'real France', with picturesque villages, historic towns, true French culture and some of the best beaches in France - all this easily accessible from the channel ports, yet far enough south to enjoy reliable summers and a warm, sunny spring and autumn - it's one of the sunniest spots in western France. It's also near to the famous port of La Rochelle and the historic town of Nantes - lovely places to visit for a day out.

We cover the west coast of France region of La Vendee, from the southern Loire (Nantes) down to La Rochelle, most of the cottages and villas being within easy reach of the coast (La Faute sur Mer, La Tranche sur Mer, St Gilles Croix de Vie, St Hilaire de Riez, St Jean de Monts, Les Sables d'Olonne, Bretignolles, Brem sur Mer, L'Aiguillon sur Mer, Port Bourgenay, Jard sur Mer, St Vincent sur Jard, Talmont St Hilaire).
