About Vendée Holiday Cottages
Imagine miles of clean sandy beaches, sunny days & fun for all the family. This is exactly what the Vendée department of Western France has to offer, over 140km of beaches and endless hours of sunshine every year, making the Vendée an ideal destination for summer holidays and off-season breaks. Transport links from the UK & Ireland are great, and the roads are never jammed – even during the height of summer!
Choose your self-catered and family-friendly holiday home from our wide range of properties throughout the Vendée. From two-beds in the countryside to a 5-bedroom in near the beach, we cater for a wide variety of group sizes and all properties are known personally to us (many will have the owners on-site) and all have Wi-Fi internet access.
