The Charente and Vendée regions are blessed with microclimate ensuring high probability of hot sunny days during the summer.

With nearly 100 miles of sandy beaches backed by pine forests and easy access from the southern channel ports, it is a popular destination for British and French holidaymakers seeking a sun, sea and sand holiday.

However there is much more to this area than beaches including fortified cities, islands, wetlands and vineyards. It is worth travelling inland from the coast to see rural France at its best as well as some highly rated theme parks such as Puy du Fou and Futuroscope.

Fabulous sandy beaches, unspoilt countryside, historical cities and fine food and wine are just some of the attractions that this part of France can offer.

The Vendee is situated in the west coast of France and features mile upon mile of golden sandy beaches that slope into the clear blue sea. It is the perfect place for water-sports or relaxing in the sun. With its wonderful west coast climate, it is the perfect place for family beach holidays.

Explore the beautiful French countryside, visit Roman remains, world famous Cognac or take a trip to grand old cities or famous chateaux, there is plenty for everyone in the Vendee.

The Vendee area is also famous for its wine. It boasts acres and acres of vineyards that produce wines such as Muscadet and Gros Plant. La Tranche has some of the best sandy beaches in France and offers a range of water-sports for the more adventurous. There are also many picturesque towns and fishing ports to explore in the area.

La Rochelle is only a short distance away, this is France's 2nd largest boat building port and the historic Vieux Port remains largely unchanged. A daily fish market can be found in the old town until 12:00 midday. The port is very attractive and waterside cafés and restaurants offer a relaxing break. The seafood platters are their speciality and are excellent especially for large groups, where a single huge dish of shellfish is produced. The new marina holds Europe's largest aquarium which is open 365 days a year and has a large selection of fish from highly coloured tropical types to eels and sharks.

Le Travot Surf

We can organise discounted surfing lessons through one of the local schools that offer these on our La Terriere beach, series of 5 x 1.5 hour lessons, or single lessons.
They provide boards and wet suits, great thing to do with the kids.
