Chateaux on the Atlantic Coast
Quality Villas has personally and lovingly selected a number of stunning French chateaux on the Atlantic coast of France, chosen for their enviable locations in a variety of different regions along this wonderful stretch of coastline.
All of our Chateaux offer the highest quality in style, excellent facilities, and staff service. If needed some of our Chateaux near the Atlantic Coast have helipads. Take a look at our Loire Chateaux in Lencloitre, nestled a couple of hours inland from the Atlantic Coast just south of Nantes, within a day trip from the seaside resort Les Sables d'Olonne. Built in the late 1800s at the heart of the Vienne department, this enchanting fairytale castle with exquisite taste is nestled amongst extensive century-old woodland and splendid landscaped gardens. It has a private, heated pool with jacuzzi and there is a magical lake within the private grounds. If you would like to hit the beach for a day then take the pleasant drive out to the Vendee Coast where you will find many of the beaches have been awarded blue flag status for their cleanliness and water quality. Wander around the seaside resorts such as Les Sables d'Olonne and St Jean du Monts, discovering their old world charm and fantastic seafood restaurants.
The Atlantic Coast of France is top European destination for surfers, and if you would like to give it a go yourself then there are a number of Vendee surf schools which will take you to the best surf spots. We have three beautiful and highly original Chateaux that are within a day trip from the Charente coastline, with its very attractive harbour towns La Rochelle, Rochefort and Royan, the Gironde Estuary, idyllic islands, and miles of sandy beaches to explore on your multiple days out.
Our Chateaux in Marthon is ideal for a large group or special event, as it sleeps 26 people, has an impressive function room as well as a cinema and music room, bars, and large heated pool. This chateaux fuses original features with chic furnishings and design icons. There are so many things to do and see on the Atlantic Coast of France.
