If happiness for you is being by the sea, a visit to the Vendee and Charente-Maritime could be your perfect holiday. With an endless coastline stretching nearly 600km, Vendee lays just south of the Loire estuary, and Charentes just below. Here, not only will you discover enchanting beaches, you'll find stunning medieval towns, historic ports and charming vineyards - and the southern microclimate means it's blessed with the sunshine too! La Rochelle and Rochefort are amongst the most impressive medieval towns in this coastal region to visit from your Vendee villa and Charentes villa. Both with breathtaking architectural heritage, and then there are acres of pretty vineyards, including those that produce the renowned Cognac. If you're looking for something a little more active, the Atlantic ocean is right on your doorstep; watersport lovers rejoice! Our luxury villa collection includes charming country houses, beautiful farmhouses and stunning chateaux. Let Quality Villas find the perfect holiday home for you.
