"Year 4 and not wanting to go back to the UK!! Enjoyed staying in larger gite this year, facilities excellent in this gîte (really enjoyed dishwasher this year). Excellent owners and hosts as ever.

The Pays de la Loire region

Dolphin Gîtes is situated in the attractive coastal village of La Chaize Giraud, in the North of Vendée between Les Sables d'Olonne and St Gilles-Croix de Vie. The village is 5 km from the seaside town of Brétignolles sur mer, 10 minutes from the fishing port of St Gilles (to the North) and 20 minutes from the resort of Les Sables d'Olonne (to the South).

It is often said that Vendée offers the best climate in easy travelling distance from the UK! It has an average of 240 days sunshine/ year, plenty of opportunity to appreciate the fabulous beaches the region has to offer.

La Chaize Giraud

The Vendee has many great opportunities for cycling, swimming, fishing, sailing, sunbathing, surfing and walking.

The Normandelière at Brétignolles sur-mer is a great beach with a créperie in the dunes. There is also a sea lake nearby which is ideal for young children. Other great beaches include the Grande Plage at St Gilles, and the famous bow shaped beach at Les Sables d'Olonne. There are miles of new cycle paths along the coast and through the countryside. If you like rambling, you will enjoy the scenic lake Jaunay.

The Puy du Fou Park is one of the most famous attractions the Vendée has to offer and is only a 70 minute drive from Dolphin Gites.

“Peaceful and plenty to do”

Reviewed 27 Nov 2012

This property offers excellent location ideal for accessing numerous different beaches easily, we found some were better for rock pooling, others for surfing or sand castles and a beach monitored by life guards. As you have to get into the car to drive to the beach, it’s great to have easy access to a variety depending on tides and the weather. It is also ideally suited for accessing inland attractions and supermarkets (the ones on the coast do get very busy with holiday makers). We loved the tranquillity of these gites, some days we spent all day around the pool often having it all to ourselves. It is kept beautiful clean. The close proximity to the gites means stress free if you want to nip back for a drink, book or lunch. The only disadvantage is there is very little shade at the pool. The gite had its own garden with patio furniture and BBQ ideal for alfresco eating or taking it easy out of the mid-day sun. The gite itself is very comfortable, with plenty of room to eat and relax, I don't particularly like the combination/microwave oven - but with the hob and BBQ, salads and eating out we didn't find this too much of an issue. The dishwasher was a fantastic bonus, as was the washing machine. Sky TV meant we could keep up with the Olympics but otherwise we wouldn't have had it on! The whole property area is well maintained there were always table tennis bats and balls and the children are allowed to play ball games in the back garden. There is a tennis court in the village which was not locked last year and we could pitch up and play pretty much whenever we wanted. Only once did we find anyone playing on the court. One disadvantage to this property is that you cannot walk to a local restaurant. You can get to a small spar shop and get a pretty tasty take away Pizza. Howard and Cathy are very friendly and helpful; they helped us find a particular restaurant via the internet and made the booking for us
