The Poitou-Charentes/Vendee region
The beautiful and bustling harbour town of La Rochelle is most definitely worth visiting. The two famous harbour towers date back to the XIV Century and the arcaded streets give the town a real sense of history.
The harbour is lined with wonderful seafood restaurants and bars, and by night it becomes both stunning and vibrant. The park is a lovely place to spend some peaceful time - enjoy the bird sanctuary and the animal enclosures, with peacocks, deer, goats and donkeys - the kids will love the well equipped play areas too.
The world renowned Aquarium is a real treat for kids and adults alike, and there are numerous places of interest to visit, like the old Hotel de Ville and the Natural History museum.
The man-made sandy beach is great for relaxing and sunbathing, with restaurants and casino just a few steps away. Further into the old town are more delicious restaurants and great shopping under the old arcades. Experience the wonderful fresh indoor food market which opens daily.
Ile de Re
L'Ile de Re is a beautiful, unspoilt and fiercely protected island, connected to the mainland and La Rochelle by a magnificent 3 km bridge.
'A flat, fragrant, family friendly holiday spot. just 30km long and 5km wide, it's criss-crossed by an extensive network (100km) of cycle paths which wind through fields full of poppies, pine forests, pretty French villages, past fishing harbours, salt pans and oyster farms. It's also celebrated for its endless sandy beaches backed by powdery dunes. The island feels like the France, or rather the 'seaside' of yesteryear. It is the perfect place for running barefoot along the shore, playing hide and seek in the sand dunes, picking your way through rock pools and picnics on the sand.
Strict building regulations have meant that even new properties have to stick to the low-slung whitewashed-with-green-shutters look. However, the chic shops and waterfront restaurants of the fishing villages give it a very French maritime sophistication.' The Independent

"Great house, well furnished, quiet location with close amenities - our family of 5 had a great two weeks!"
A great house with very helpful owners. All bedrooms, lounge and kitchen were good sizes and well furnished to a good standard. The outdoor patio is quiet and secluded and good for outdoor eating an… More
Thanks for your comments, and great to hear you enjoyed your stay at our house.
The master bedroom has a standard size double bed - we don't feel the room would accommodate a king-size, but appreciate your thoughts.
The weather was great during your stay, and very hot! We would have happily brought extra fans, had you asked for them. We're always happy to attend to the comfort of our guests.
Just to make it clear to our future guests, the local beach at Ste Marie is a 10 minute walk, and the beach at Le Bois Plage, which is our favourite for swimming, is a 10 minute drive or a 30 minute cycle ride.
Many thanks for coming to stay at La Maison Balneaire.
