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)
Longeville sur Mer
La Maison de Soleil is situated in Longeville-sur-Mer which boasts twice-weekly markets and a range of shops and restaurants. The south Vendee coast has many attractions ranging from walks, vineyards, chateaux, dedicated cycle tracks, museums, sea-life centres, not forgetting the all-important beaches and sea! Every summer there are numerous music festivals and watersport festivals.

"Great holiday in a lovely house"
We had a wonderful stay at this lovely house. It was our first summer holiday with our toddler, and the house was great for little ones - plenty of space, no stairs, lovely enclosed garden. It is well equipped, has a great location near to the centre of town, a large supermarket and two lovely boulangeries. Cheryl and Jonathan made us feel very welcome. Wonderfully peaceful too. Would love to stay again!

"Longeville Sur Mer"
The house my wife and I stayed at with our 2 dogs was clean, airy and roomy. The rooms were of a good size and the mattress was comfortable to sleep upon. The garden was perfect for our 2 dogs. It provided privacy as well as security as one of our 2 dogs would likely wander off if perimeter fencing was not in situ. The house is well located to amenities such as restaurants, local supermarket with petrol pumps, the local street market and so on. The veterinary clinic is only a 10 minutes drive away and the staff there spoke much better English than we could with our French. Longeville sur mer has a lovely beach that can be reached by car within 10 minutes. For those feeling fit, you can take a walk to the beach through the forest, but that would take about an hour.
The rental does not come with WiFi access but it does come with some of the terrestrial English TV channels.
Overall, good location and the house was ideal for us. Will definitely return.
Thank you for your feedback - it's great to know that you enjoyed your stay and that you will be back. We're going to have mobile 3G internet available very soon!

"Great house, great location, great owners."
We've just got back from our second stay at La Maison de Soleil and found the house to be just as good as when we stayed four years ago.
The house is very clean and well equipped with everything you're likely to need. The seating areas are comfortable, the bedrooms are spacious and there are even some English TV channels. The house has high ceilings and very large windows making the whole place bright and airy. The garden is enclosed making it safe for kids to play.
The house is located within very easy walking distance of Longeville (without being actually 'in' the town centre) down a narrow driveway so the house is off the road. Longeville is small but has all you need in terms of a couple of restaurants, tourist information, post office and somewhere to get your bread and morning pastries! The stunning beaches are within 10 minute drive away and a large supermarket is around 3 minute drive! There are also lots of things to do with children in the area (we've got 9 and 6 year old boys) including Puy de Fou which, although an hour away is without doubt worth the drive.
Booking was straightforward and the owners are good with communication.
One evening when we were sitting with a glass of wine in the garden we discussed what we'd do to improve the house if we owned it....and...well....we couldn't think of anything.

"Everything you need"
The house ist quiet but very well located (market, restaurant, bakery, pharmacy by foot), supermarket can be reached by bike (3 min), also the beach (15 min, nice trail through woods). For families with children it's a big advantage that house and garden are really spacious. Beside beach life there are various things to do (canoeing, horse riding, castles...) without driving to far. We had wonderful vacation!

"Perfect. Everything we could have hoped for."
The website was easy to follow and the correspondence with Cheryl (owner) was very informative. This continued when Cheryl met us on arrival, which made for a very welcoming start. The accommodation was much larger than we had expected with tall ceilings making it light and airy. Everything was exceptionally clean with all the facilities we required, making it feel like a home from home. The location was ideal, being in a typical quaint French village, yet only a walk or short drive to beautiful beaches. The village has a superb boulangerie, ideal for breakfast pastries and the market is perfect for local produce. The village is also well placed should you wish to explore local areas of interest, we particularly liked La Rochelle and L'lle de Re.

"Perfect break away to the beach with the dogs"
Having now stayed at this gite 4 times with my husband and two dogs, we obviously love it. With the fenced in-garden and close proximity to the beach, it is an ideal break away for us. There are bars and restaurants close by if required but after a few hours walking on the beach or running in the forest, it is nice to chill out in the quiet garden and relax. Cheryl and Jonathan have always been very flexible with us and made us feel very welcome. Looking forward to going again nex year!
