The Pays de la Loire region

The Vendée is famous for being the second sunniest part of France after the Mediterranean. The micro-climate keeps the area warm from Easter until the end of September.

The beaches of the Southern Vendée are less than an hour's drive away and are well worth a visit - miles of soft sand, rock pools and great beaches for swimming and surfing.

The Vendée has many tourist attractions such as The Puy du Fou Theme Park with its Gladiators, Vikings and Musketeers, the many historic towns with their ruined abbeys and cathedrals, and the Marais Poitevin wetland canal area.

La Chapelle-Themer

Le Gite Tournesol is set in the quiet hamlet of La Jousselinière near to the village of La Chapelle Thémer. Sainte Hermine is only 7km away and here you will find many shops, restaurants and bars, as wellas a weekly market and many fetes and festivals during the summer months. The villages of Thiré (with a bar & pizzeria) and St Juire Champgillon (with well known restaurant and hairdressers) are only a short drive away.

The house is located along a quiet country lane - with many walks and cycle routes nearby - a great place to see the local flora and fauna - with many migratory birds, deer, wild boar and fields of sunflowers en route.

Boating and fishing are available nearby on the lake at St Martin Lars or in the Forest of Mervent. For the more energetic guests, there is horse riding or a swimming pool within 20 minutes and the beaches of the southern Vendée are only 45 minutes drive away.
