The Pays de la Loire region
The Vendee is an area which is the French equivalent of a county. It’s about the same size as Devon and is located south of Brittany and north of La Rochelle. Its western edge is defined by Atlantic coastline, putting it within the region known as Western Loire. From the mouth of the Loire to L’Aiguillon sur Mer, the 140 km coastline is almost one magnificent long sandy beach. Many of the beaches regularly receive European Blue Flag accolades for their cleanliness and water quality. The Vendee’s sunshine record is about 2500 hours per year.
You will find that driving in this part of France is a lot less stressful than motoring back in the UK, due to the quieter open roads and beautiful scenery. Travelling to this area takes between 3 and 6 hours depending on which English Channel port you use. Special ferry rates apply when using Brittany Ferries from Caen, Cherbourg, Roscoff and St. Malo.
Apremont, is a very picturesque village, about 20 km east from St Hilaire is dominated by the remains of the renaissance Chateau d’Apremont, ideal for picnics, as well as swimming and boating on the river La Vie. At Commequiers is a “Velo Rail” that uses an old railway track and hand carts to travel on and see some beautiful countryside. About 2 hours away is La Rochelle with its old fortified port and ancient houses.
Some of the Loire chateaux are accessible for a daytrip.
To the east near Les Épesses is some of the region’s best known entertainment at the world famous castle of Le Puy-de-Fou. This includes “Le Grand Parc” historical theme park, the Chateau, museums and ”Cinescenie” an incredible open air, night time show. At Poitiers, there is the state of the art theme park “Futuroscope”.
Near Port St.Pere there is Planete Sauvage, an excellent safari park similar to Longleat. Also there is a very good zoo at Les Sables d’Olonne.It also happens to be the home of the famous Vendee Globe single handed round the world yacht race. Pornic is a very chic “Edwardian” style resort in the North Vendee, with lots of restaurants around the harbour. For shopping, there are large hypermarkets at St. Hilaire and St. Gilles Croix de Vie.
Not to be missed are the local markets, held every morning in the surrounding towns and villages, where excellent local produce and crafts can be purchased. Both Nantes and the region’s capital, La Roche sur Yon have good shopping and historical interest. You can travel to Nantes by train from Croix de Vie.

"Small but perfectly formed"
Everything you need is on hand - site and facilities were excellent and owners couldn't have been more helpful. The chalet was well equipped and had the bonus of outside garden space and comfortable sun loungers. There was lots of activities in the clubhouse and was a perfect base from which to visit the local attractions including the coast.
Thank you Phil, it was great that we were able to accomodate you at such short notice. Elaine said she stayed on the weekend with you and enjoyed the beaches close by.

"Everything you need for a great Vendee base."
The owners have equipped this holiday home out to a high standard, there was everything we needed including sun loungers. It is located on a spacious corner plot with a tree giving shade. The caravan was immaculately clean and the site was well maintained. The facilities included a bar, entertainment and a well run kids club, which we made use of. We enjoyed having indoor and outdoor pools to choose from, which weren't too busy considering it was peak weeks we visited. The site was quiet and well located on the edge of the village, which had all the amenities we needed, bakery shop and pharmacist. This site was convenient for site seeing and using the lake in Apremont for swimming and sunbathing. The owners stayed in contact with us and made sure we enjoyed our stay. Excellent holiday base.
Thank you for the review, hope to see you again.
