The Poitou-Charentes/Vendee region
The Vendée has a microclimate which means that the area enjoys up to 2600 hours of sunshine a year. This is almost as many as the south of France and almost twice as many as London! Well-established as a tourist area you will find activities to suit all of the family. From a castle in Talmont-St-Hilaire and a tower in Moricq to a zoo in Les Sables d'Olonne there really is something for everyone. All towns have local produce markets, wonderful opportunities to try local specialities and soak up some of the friendly Vendéen atmosphere. The summer also sees the area hosting many music festivals and watersport competitions. Every four years the world famous Vendée globe race sets off from Les Sables d'Olonne and the Vendée is regularly featured in the itinerary for the Tour de France cycle race.
Situated in the southern reaches of the Loire valley, the Vendée has four main wine-producing areas : Brem-sur-Mer, Vix, Pissotte and Mareuil-sur-Lay. Visits and tastings can be arranged and most restaurants stock local wines for you to enjoy.
For history buffs l'Historial de la Vendée is the place to visit. (http://historial.vendee.fr/) Telling the long history of the area from pre-historic times to the present day there is also a simulated helicopter ride over the Vendée, exciting for visitors of all ages.
Slightly further afield are the leisure parks of Futuroscope (www.futuroscope.com) and Puy de Fou (www.puydufou.com) both 'must-sees' for the family. For bargain-hunters, Cholet has a designer outlet - Marques Avenue with many popular labels at reduced prices. (www.marquesavenue.com)
La Tranche sur Mer
Angles is a vibrant market town with bars, shops and restaurants. During the summer there are twice-weekly markets and regular evening entertainment such as live bands, a circus, theatre productions, 'Moules Frites' (mussels and chips) evenings and outdoor dances. Angles also has a large brocante (antique shop) and on the showground there are regular car-boot and antique fairs.
La Bergerie is in Moricq, part of Angles with its own supermarket, bar and boulangerie. Also in Moricq there is a fifteenth century tower which used to be part of the sea defence for the area. Guided visits of the tower run throughout the summer.

"Lovely Gite, Great Garden"
We stayed at La Bergerie late August, I would describe it as a compact gite with good facilities and an excellent garden.
It's a nice area and only a short drive to the beaches and supermarkets.
The owners live on site but are not intrusive but available for any issue, we only had one issue with a kettle that stopped working and was replaced within hours, so a five star service!
Would recommend this Gite.

"Lovely little gite in beautiful area"
We chose this gite as we wanted a dog friendly and safe place, situated near to all the places we planned to visit in the area. It certainly ticked all the boxes helped by a week of glorious weather and the friendly welcome by the owners.

"Top accomodatie, alleen saaie omgeving."
Ik ben met mijn partner en zoon (6mnd) in juni 1 week in La Bergerie geweest. Het huisje is helemaal prima met een hele fijne tuin erbij en een mooie veranda. Ook over de service valt niets aan te mer… More

"No regrets booking this gite."
The gite was just as advertised in a quiet village right on the edge of the countryside. It is well placed for visiting La Rochelle, les Sable d'Olonne and the extensive sandy beaches around La Tranche. Cheryl and Jonathon were very helpful and gave us good tips of other places to visit and also recommended places to eat. Enjoyed evening walks from the gite with plenty of wildlife. Overall a very good holiday.

"A wonderfully comfortable gite in an idylic and convenient location."
We spent a week at La Bergerie and thoroughly enjoyed our stay. It was ideal for the three of us (my partner and myself and our 12 year old son). Cheryl and Jonathan were very friendly, welcoming and helpful yet not intrusive in any way. Their gite is equipped with all that you need for a comfortable stay, but perhaps the most enduring feature of the gite is it's terrific location; set in a beautiful rural french village, yet only a short 10 minute drive to the sea at a Tranche Sur Mer. We had a fantastic time and will be returning next year.

"Our lovely Gite in La Tranche"
This is the 3rd time we have stayed here and this time went back with our 5 month baby, La Bergerie is a well eqipped gite which has a lovely garden where you can relax and you can sit on the decking area to enjoy a nice meal and a glass of wine or two!! You can walk to the nearest town Angles which has a nice bar and few restaurants,also Moriq has a supermarket and a small bar very close by. Cheryl and Johnathan the owners are very friendly and always available if needed, We have booked again already for next year and cant wait to go back.

"A REAL TASTE OF FRANCE!"
A truely relaxing experience! The gite was full of French charm and well equipped. The attached decking area, with lighting, gave a lovely ambience at night. The power shower was a true bonus and the internet availabilty proved very useful.
The property was attached to the owners' residence and the service provided was excellent. Being on the outskirts of a hamlet offered a lovely seclusion but ammenities were only a five minute drive away. Satisfaction is illustrated by the fact that we are already booked for next year!
Excellent beaches are only ten minutes away by car. Take care with children and ensure swimming takes place in controlled zones. An ideal area for keen surfers while La Tranche Sur Mer is constantly being improved to cater for tourists.
