About this location

The Pays de la Loire region

Blue Flag Sandy Beaches (10 minutes away by car)

The fantastic sandy beaches are over 13 kilometres long - and 8 kilometres of them face due south. La-Tranche-sur-Mer and Les Conches are ideal for families with children. They are approved as a "Kids Station", which means that the resort is a safe environment for children to play in. It also has specialist equipment and entertainments which specifically cater for families.

Great Quad Bike/karting experience (2 minutes away by car)

Let the kids (and indeed the big boys!) be the next Lewis Hamilton or Jenson Button for a while! Whiz around the course and have a great thrill trying to beat your opponents. For safety reasons, the kids go on the course only with other children and the safety briefing is excellent. Whilst they are having fun on the track, the rest of the party can have a nice coffee in the covered terrace area.

Indian Forest Adventure (5 minutes away by car)

This great theme park has marked trails in a forest, as well as 122 different challenges. Suspended on safety harnesses, you are able to climb, swing, dismount and even slide across the forest at a height of 20ft above the ground. There is also an adventure area for toddlers, with themed bouncy castles, a ball park, rock climbing and an inflatable park. This is an excellent day out for both children and adults and is just 5 minutes from our gites.

Sporting activities on the beach (10 minutes away by car)

The beach at La-Tranche-sur-Mer has a 6-hectare area of water for water sports. The "Cercle Nautique Tranchais" (CNT) offers sailing, windsurfing, kite-surfing and sand-sailing. The area is also superb for boating and surfing enthusiasts

Adventure Park & Chateau (15 minutes away by car)

Experience the 'historic adventure' in the setting of the grounds of the 'Chateau de La Guignardiere'. Visit four continents of the world and solve the various puzzles as you go round. Get all the answers correct at the end the children get to open the treasure chest which holds a special reward for them. The park is set in 86 hectares of ancient trees, rows of menhires and wonderful animals such as deer, horses, ponies, swans and geese.

Excellent golf courses (30 minutes away by car)

France is one of Europe's most popular golfing holiday destinations. It has over 25 of the Top 100 golf courses in Europe - and many golfers are now choosing to play in France rather than the traditional Spanish golf resorts. French golf courses are of an exceptionally high standard, are competitive and are well managed. We have 5 courses within easy reach!

Aquarium La Rochelle (1hr away by car)

This is a 2 hour journey into the depth of the ocean - The kids will just love it. There are over 10,000 Atlantic, Mediterranean and Tropical species to view in an amazing 3 million litres of water. The huge shark aquarium with 20 different species was amazing if not a little frightening . An excellent day out, probably one of the best aquariums you will ever visit.

Dunes Adventure Park (1hr away by car)

With over 38 different activities for the children to play on, the kids are bound to find a favourite! The kids will thoroughly enjoy everything on offer especially the water slides, trampolines (fully enclosed) and toboggan rides. A very safe, clean and friendly environment and lots of under cover shaded picnic area.

Puy du Fou (1hr 30mins away by car)

This is where time stands still - and will be an instant hit with children and adults alike. You'll see villages from different eras, gladiators still doing battle and Vikings launching attacks on fortified castles! In the summer, there are 28 evening/night shows with 300 fireworks per show, 2000 digitally-controlled projectors, 1500 computerised fountains, 4500 costumes and many more special effects. There are minstrels in the heart of the woods and master falconers in the meadows. You must book in advance for the evening show.

Cycle rail on tracks (1hr 30 away by car)

This is a great chance for the entire family to have some quality time together taking in the beautiful countryside, and wildlife whilst enjoying a picnic. The cycle cars are designed for either 4 or 5 people each and run along an amazing 10km stretch of former railway line (of course you don't have to do it all!)

Oceanile water park (2hrs away by car)

At the heat of Norimoutier this wonderful water park offers plenty of laughter for the entire family. Crystal- clear water heated to 28 degrees, giant toboggans, rubber rings (single and doubles), huge wave-filled swimming pool and cascading waterfalls await you. Great fun!

Fishing on the rivers (5 minutes away by car)

You can enjoy two types of fishing - On the freshwater rivers upstream from the lock gates at Moricq, you can try for pike, perch, carp, bream and other bleak. You will need a licence which can be purchased at the villages Office du Tourism. Or you can fish in the saltwater reaches of the Lay, from the gates of Moricq to the mouth of the river which is subject to maritime regulations, so you can fish free of charge, for grey mullet, eels and plaice

La Tranche sur Mer

The villa is only a minutes stroll from the centre of the village of 'Longeville sur Mer'. In the months of July and August the village has a large street market on both Monday and Friday mornings, so an excellent opportunity to sample much of the locally produced food, including cheese, meat, fish and wine.

The village has an Office de Tourisme, a post office, banks, hairdresser, beauty salon, florist, pharmacy, cafes/bars and restaurants, two butchers, a fishmonger, a fruit & vegetable shop and of course a 'cave' for you to purchase local wine. There is also a 'Hyper' supermarket, just on the outskirts of the village, 5 minutes away by bike!

In the summer months Longeville sur Mer organises special events in the square including fun days, evening entertainers, jazz and blues nights, firework displays and night markets. You can sit with the locals and enjoy 'moules & frites' listening to a band watching the kids dance to their hearts content.

Located so close to the village, you can visit in the evenings to one of the restaurants, or stroll down in the morning to pick up your fresh croissants and baguette.

The large fishing port of l'Aiguillon is just 20 minutes away. Early risers can choose from a range of freshly-caught fish, mussels, oysters, langoustine and gambas at the town's fish market which is open every weekday at 5am. Those who prefer a lie-in can sample the seafood later in the day at one of the many wonderful fish restaurants in the town.

Whether you're an experienced cyclist or a leisure rider, this area has plenty of surprises in store for you. All along the 'Loire a Velo' signposted bike trial, you can marvel at the stunning Loire countryside, visit chateaux & abbeys, stroll through quaint little towns & cycle through vineyards for over 110 miles!

The Val de Loire Vineyards Tourist Trail - 40,000 hectares of 'degustation' - The skills of the vine were introduced by the Romans, and are now one of the main assets of the Pays de la Loire. Sweet, dry, sparkling, white, red or rose - every one of you will find just what you're looking for among our prestigious AOC wines. Saumur Brut, Coteaux du Layon, Saumur-Champigny, Anjou Villages, Muscadet, Mareuil wines... From the Nantes area to Montsoreau, the Val de Loire Vineyards Tourist Trail extends you a warm welcome!

You will also find a comprehensive folder in the villa listing restaurants, activities and local events, as well as plenty of ideas for entertaining the children. There is a good write up of over 20 local restaurants that we recommend visiting with the kids and if you want some 'adult time' we can also organise the baby-sitter too!

"Big solid French house that is good for family get togethers even in winter"

We stayed in the house just after Christmas and into the New Year. The house spacious even with all 9 of us milling around. As the weather was chilly in December, we went to the beach just once and did not use the pool at all. We spent cosy evenings by the woodburning fire, and days eating mainly, walking to the baker each morning, restaurant lunch then back to the house for the evening meal. Supermarkets are nearby, and have everything.
The village of is very pretty, blue shaded shutters everywhere. Best of all, the boulangerie (bakery) was open on New Year's Day.
The house had the feeling of 70's glamour, updated for today's needs. The kitchen looked new, the tables in the dining area sat all of us at once easily. The bedrooms all have the original windows and shutters, lots of character. There were enough loos and bathrooms for all of us.
Linen was included and we treated ourselves to a chef for one of the nights.
The children spent many happy hours playing with the games on the landing. There was also a separate sofa area with another tv if the children wanted to watch a film, which they did, and it worked well. I think the summer prices are more, but we found it value for money for the time we were there.

You were the perfect guests and are always welcome back....! Thanks for taking the time to write your review on our home, it is very much appreciated and we are thrilled to be welcoming you and your family back for Christmas 2014.
