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.

Boating is of course a favourite way to enjoy your day in Vendee. Sailing in yachts, catamarans and boats in the Atlantic is of particular note, but playing on the river in a canoe or small boat is also a fun way to spend a day from any Vendee villa.

A real treat.

5 of 5
Without doubt the best self-catering property we have rented. The layout for our family of 4 was perfect. Everyone had their own bedroom. The open plan living area was massive for us. The chairs and sofa were comfy. The dining table converting into a pool table was a bonus. The huge TV was great as we took a PS4 with us for DVDs, games, Netflix, Amazon video (an Xbox 360 is already there for your use anyway!) The galley kitchen is very well specced out and the utility room was handy too. As the apartment is the whole of the 2nd floor of the building (plus roof space for extra bedrooms), the outside terrace area is huge. The view out to the Atlantic is wonderful and the sound of the sea is ever there, even on calm days when waves are washing up the beach. We stayed off-season and the area was very quiet which we liked. I imagine in the summer it is chaotic as the shoreline appears to be primarily summer houses and apartments. Having said that, the seafront has a very slow speed limit so I'd guess the traffic noise is pretty minimal even in peak season. Thanks to Nicolas and Celine for the excellent communications throughout the holiday process. And also to Perrine for the meet and greet, and explanations of everything despite our mutual language barrier! We'd wholly recommend this as a base for a Vendee holiday. Within a hour's driving radius there is lots to discover.

Wonderful autumn holiday

4 of 5
We liked the house very much, it was clean, comfortable and apart from the unreliable wifi, everything worked as it should. The weather was beautiful for mid-October and we spent a lot of our time cycling around the quiet lanes and canalside paths. We had great fun the afternoon we hired a canoe from Damvix! Thanks for Mariusz for allowing us mid-week arrival and departure days.
