There is a massive range of accommodation available here, including villas, gites, and holiday cottages for rent, so there are no shortage of holiday lettings in Vendee for use as a base for a magnificently varied holiday, or as a base to walk, cycle and ride through the stunning countryside.

Very pleasant

4 of 5
The cottage had all you could need and the owners were very nice and unobtrusive. We really enjoyed staying here and it made a wonderful base in which to explore the area.

Le Logis de Dolbeau

4 of 5
Very comfortable house. Lovely atmosphere. Great base for exploring, and loads of places to visit and discover. The proximity of seaside villages/towns means you're spoilt for choice for beaches and entertainment. Nearby Chateaux, interesting churches, and available activities are not in short supply. All in all, something for everyone. A good selection of restaurants are within a fairly short drive. I found parking in the small drive easy ! Remember to turn right out of the drive when setting off - the One Way sign on the main road isn't very clear. Local walks, and the river nearby, and at Apremont, are fascinating, especially if you like nature, wildlife, and/or photography. There are plenty of fishing opportunities too. A very enjoyable holiday, with help from the owners if needed. Tomtom was more than useful..... A wealth of information about specific eateries etc, is available in the house, with some very helpful observations from previous holidaymakers. The property was very clean, and customer service A1.

Fantastic villa for 2 families to share with small children.

5 of 5
A fabulous place to stay as a relaxing retreat, we were 2 families and had a wonderful stay. Large luxury Villa with very well thought out sitting and eating areas inside and out. Very well equipt kitchen for the home chef! Gardens fully enclosed keeping little ones safe. The pool is heated as described at a steady 29 degrees making swimming a very pleasant experience. Again the pool is kiddy friendly as it can be closed off with locking patio doors. More than adequate wifi speeds and great it tech available. Fully equipped laundry equipment - washer, dryer. No hidden costs / charges. Please be awear that there is not much here for more independent teenagers or for those looking for a strolling, wine drinking, cafe culture. The only criticism I would have is there is no air con or fans available and the bikes needed puncture repairs before we could use them and really would benefit from some maintenance. These are very minor issues and I would have no problems recommending this venue to friends and family, and we will be looking to book to stay here again. Many thanks to Nicholas for his superb communication and for helping make this a stress free vacation.
