The gite is wonderful: spacious, well maintained and has everything you could need. We travelled with two toddlers and one baby and they thoroughly enjoyed their time. John and Julia have a gorgeous accommodation here and offered meals and support with anything if required. Amazing place.

Since 2003, Vendée Vacances has offered high quality holiday accommodation in the Vendée region of France that is particularly suitable for multigenerational groups including families holidaying with young children.  Located on the Atlantic coast of France, south of Nantes and the Loire River, just to the North of the elegant & historic port city of La Rochelle, the region boasts superb beaches, enjoys an exceptional climate and has attractions to suit all ages.


Our gites and holiday cottages are situated on the edge of villages in the South Vendée, near the attractive market towns of Fontenay-le-Comte and Luçon.  All the gîtes are ideal for large family groups or for two or more families holidaying together. The quality of the holiday accommodation and services offered by Vendée Vacances is most clearly evidenced by the large number of our guests who return for two or more visits not to mention the highly positive reviews we have on sites such as Trip Advisor.  

Why a Gite in the Vendee?

Simply, the Vendée is an ideal family holiday destination. The area offers plenty to see and do. The countryside is peaceful and uncrowded; there are adventure parks, fun fairs and zoos for all ages, and the beaches of the Vendée are amongst the best in Europe.


The south of the Vendée enjoys the second highest number of sunshine hours in France, after the Côte d’Azur, yet rarely achieves the same searing temperatures.




Vendée Vacances is a family business owned by Jon and Julia Doust.  All of the properties advertised here are owned by Vendée Vacances and we are personally concerned with their day-to-day management. We live locally and are available to answer questions or to provide any assistance you might require during the course of your stay.  We are also the chefs for the evening meals and cakes provided on request..
