The Poitou-Charentes/Vendee region

The Vendee is an ideal family holiday destination, being very easy to get to (just 3 hours from the ferry port of St Malo), yet far enough south to enjoy a great climate. There is also easy fly-drive access via the nearby airports of Nantes and La Rochelle.

You will find a wide choice of attractions to visit and holiday activities for the children, including many theme parks. There are many chateaux with history pageants and festivities, beautiful botanical gardens, and of course the fabulous coastline with its sandy beaches and excellent water sports facilities. A trip to the history theme park “Le Puy du Fou” is an unforgettable day out for all the family – not to be missed. In the south of the Vendee, there is also the famous “Green Venice” area, for a relaxing punt trip through the canals and waterways. The more adventurous will find plenty to keep them busy; go-karts, micro-lights, quad excursions, hot-air ballooning, tree adventure parks, paint-ball, as well as excellent surfing spots.

"Lovely Gite in St. Gilles Croix de Vie"

liked best - Greeted by very friendly owners who were obviously very proud of their Gite, limited English and limited French but managed to understand everything that was needed. The Gite definitely h… More

Very glad to hear that you enjoyed your stay at "L'Atelier". The design of the staircase does make it difficult to fit a stair-gate. We have had 2 to 3 year olds staying with no real difficulties, but the owners are certainly mindful of this need. If a suitable solution can be found I'm sure they will do their best to make this improvement.
Sadly the lack of hand-basins in toilets is frequently the case in French homes. It seems to be a habit with French architects... I will make sure that your very helpful comments are passed on the owners.
