The Vendée is on the west coast of France, to the south of Brittany. It has a beautiful
coastline with attractive countryside inland. It is about 3 hours from St Malo,
4 to 5 hours from Cherbourg and Caen and 6 to 7 hours from Calais.
The house is located in the quiet hamlet of La Boucherie, within one mile of the
small town of Beaulieu sous la Roche. The popular resorts of St Gilles Croix-de-Vie,
St Jean-de-Monts and Les Sables-d'Olonnes are within easy reach.
The house has 3 bedrooms and will sleep 6 comfortably and could sleep 8.
It is only 30 minutes from the Vendean coast, with both safe bathing for families
and surfing for the more adventurous. It is also well situated for a trip to the
Puys de Fuys theme park. If you want longer excursions there are the Futuroscope
theme park, the resort of La Rochelle, the Ile de Nourmoutier and the beautiful Ile
Only 15 minutes away in Apremont there is an impressive chateau and a lake with a
man made beach and supervised bathing and windsurfing (in season), which is ideal
for both young children and older ones. Nearby there is also the ancient castle
at Talmont, built by Richard the Lionheart.
If you don't want to venture far, you can enjoy the large garden. There are lots
of lovely walks and bike rides around the house, without resorting to the car. There
are plenty of restaurants nearby in Beaulieu and Aizenay.
