The Pays de la Loire region

Dolphin Gîtes is situated in the attractive coastal village of La Chaize Giraud, in the North of Vendée between Les Sables d'Olonne and St Gilles-Croix de Vie. The village is 5 km from the seaside town of Brétignolles sur mer, 10 minutes from the fishing port of St Gilles (to the North) and 20 minutes from the resort of Les Sables d'Olonne (to the South).

It is often said that Vendée offers the best climate in easy travelling distance from the UK! It has an average of 240 days sunshine/ year, plenty of opportunity to appreciate the fabulous beaches the region has to offer.

La Chaize Giraud

The Vendee has many great opportunities for cycling, swimming, fishing, sailing, sunbathing, surfing and walking.

The Normandelière at Brétignolles sur-mer is a great beach with a créperie in the dunes. There is also a sea lake nearby which is ideal for young children. Other great beaches include the Grande Plage at St Gilles, and the famous bow shaped beach at Les Sables d'Olonne. There are miles of new cycle paths along the coast and through the countryside. If you like rambling, you will enjoy the scenic lake Jaunay.

The Puy du Fou Park is one of the most famous attractions the Vendée has to offer and is only a 70 minute drive from Dolphin Gites.
