The Poitou-Charentes/Vendee region
The Vendée is well-known for being the second sunniest region of France and there are miles of excellent beaches from as little as 20 minutes away from this holiday home.
Our hamlet of L'Oulerie is the ideal base for walking or cycling holidays and the countryside is a bird watchers paradise!
There are also 5 golf courses in the area and for a more tranquil day out - Le Marais Poitevin is only 60 minutes away where you can hire boats and take a leisurely row along the many canals.
L'Oulerie is a small hamlet set in the beautiful Vendée countryside.
Luçon is only 10 minutes away and makes a nice day out with a visit to the 600 year old cathedral or a saunter around the Jardin Dumaine. Here you will find many shops, bars, restaurants and a weekly market.
The area is full of tourist attractions - such as the Indian Forest Adventure park, the car museum, the old port at La Rochelle or the many ruined castles and abbeys watching over the medieval towns.
The main attractions in the Vendee are the fantastic beaches - some for surfing, body boarding, rock pooling or just relaxing!
The surrounding countryside is great to explore and there are many guided walks around the area - stopping off in many of the picturesque little villages for a coffee or beer - many having weekly markets and brocante or antiques fairs at the weekends.
For a more active holiday, there are many watersports available at La Tranche or Les Sables D'Olonne including surfing, sand kiting, diving and jet skiing.
We are also within a 60 minute drive of the Puy de Fou and Futuroscope Theme Parks
