Further details

An information pack provided gives details of the local area and tourist attractions.

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

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.

"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

"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.
