The Pays de la Loire region
The Vendée has a micro-climate 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.
St Benoist-sur-Mer is on the edge of the Marais Poitevin nature reserve. Within walking distance of La Fermette is a viewing area for the marshes and a canoe rental centre. The 11th century church with the famous smoking rabbit on the top is visible from La Fermette. Well-placed for the beaches at both La Tranche-sur-Mer and Les Conches (both under 15 minutes by car), La Fermette really does offer the perfect blend of coast and countryside.

"Fantastic house - Great garden"
We had a great time staying at La Fermette. The house was lovely and clean and the garden was fantastic for our two boys who loved running about in it. It was also lovely to sit out in the garden on an evening as the sun was going down. It's very close to many different beaches which was ideal for us but also not far from La Rochelle. So it was an great base to explore the southern Vendee. What was was really nice touch is that Cheryl came and did a full linen change half way through the holiday - all included in the price. We loved staying in La Fermette and in St Benoist -sur- Mer. The village church with the smoking rabbit and the walk along the rivers also a bird viewing platform kept us all entertained. I would highly recommend this gite to anyone.

"Great location, close to beach and sea, as well as to the Vendee countryside"
Follow up visit to favourite Vendee area and second time renting one of Cheryl's properties. Good standard of property with large safe garden for dog. Well fitted and finished with Wifi available. Quiet and relaxing location.
Thank you for reviewing your holiday at La Fermette. It's lovely to know that you had a good stay and I look forward to welcoming you again in the future.

"Great village location in a lovely rural area."
Great location, tucked down a quiet road, so very peaceful. Typical, old French farmhouse. Large enclosed garden, the dog thought it was fantastic! Lovely walks from the house and the fabulous beaches of the region are within easy reach, about a 20 min car ride away. There are good supermarkets also within a short car ride away. It was really helpful having Cheryl, the owner close by, particularly as we had the unfortunate experience of having a woman damage our car on a supermarket car park Cheryl was brilliant and came over immediately and helped sort out the paperwork, which was a God send, as the local resident with which the accident occurred with, spoke no English and our French didn't stretch that far! I cannot thank her enough. The Vendee is lovely area, we spent 3 weeks here and thoroughly enjoyed our holiday
Thank you for taking the time to review your holiday. I'm so pleased that you enjoyed La Fermette and the local area. Always happy to help our guests with any problems that arise and glad that all was sorted with your car. I hope that we'll see you again.

"Great place, great garden, good location."
We really enjoyed our stay at La Fermette. The house was comfortable and well equipped with great outside areas where we sat with a glass or two watching the storks flying around. The large enclosed garden was excellent for the dog. Location is good for exploring up and down the coast and there are good walks from the front door where you can check out the local wildlife. There is a well stocked supermarket within easy reach and many local markets. We wil certainly be back in the future. Our thanks to Jonathan & Cheryl
Thank you for writing a review of your holiday. We're delighted that you enjoyed the house and location so much.

"A truely peaceful location"
We would recommend this property to anyone looking forward to a peaceful holiday in a rural setting but only a short drive away from a number of stunning beaches. The property is well equipped and as described on the web site. The owner was there to meet us on arrival and also on departure to hand over the keys.The directions given ensured we found the property easily. We found the owners very approachable and friendly and as they only live five minutes away, problems can be sorted out quickly. The furniture in the property is comfortable and more than adequate and the provision of a washing macine and dishwasher is useful.The beds are firm but comfortable. The property stays beautifully cool even on hot, sunny days. The large enclosed garden is a real bonus, particularly if you have dogs or children, with lots of shade. It is also well equipped with garden furniture. There are many lovely beaches close by - just a short drive away- many of which allow dogs on and many are patrolled by lifeguards. They offer all sorts of water sports. A short walk away from the property there is a nature reserve where you can watch the beavers etc play and even hire a canoe if you want to in high season. There are a few supermarkets close by and the local restaurant/bar sells bread . A large out of town shopping centre can be found in La Roche. There is a restaurant/bar in the village and many others in nearby La Tranche. We like the property so much that we have holidayed there for the last two years and hopefully plan to be back next year. .
Thank you for writing such a detailed review of your holiday and the area. We're thrilled that you enjoyed it so much and look forward to seeing you again.
