The Poitou-Charentes/Vendee region
The Vendee is arguably one of Frances best kept secrets. Superb climate, miles of sandy coastline, beautiful churches, abbeys, chateau, fishing harbours, forests and a range of outdoor and sporting activities makes this an ideal holiday destination.
The beautiful, bustling coastal holiday towns of St. Gilles- Croix-de Vie, Les Sables-D’Olonne and St Jean de Monts are within easy reach of Dolbeau and are perfect for those in search of activity, people, restaurants, bars and clubs. Life away from the coastal pace is more relaxed as you wind down twisting lanes and through old villages, separated only by the vivid greens, yellows and browns of farmers fields.
St Gilles Croix de Vie
Dolbeau is situated between the villages of Coex and Commequiers and only 14kms from the picturesque fishing port of St. Gilles-Croix de Vie. It is the river Vie that passes along the front of Les Logis de Dolbeau.
Pedal the unique Velo Rail which passes through Dolbeau between the two villages, walk or cycle the 100 kms of dedicated paths that cross the immediate area. Picnic, fish or hire boats on the nearby Lac du January or beneath the 13th Century Chateau of Apremont. Crossing the Gois at low tide between the main land and the island of Noirmoutier is a unique experience just under an hour away.
Travel by boat to Ile d’Yeu and hire bikes to explore its white sandy beaches. Within 10 kms is an 18 hole golf course, Golf des Fontenelles with several others within a 30km radius. Swimming, surfing and other water sports are available at many of the local beaches. Or just spend the day at home with a good book and a glass of local wine.
