This contemporary villa is beautifully styled and furnished, set in large grounds on the outskirts of the village of Talmont St Hilaire, close to the beaches of the Vendee and the popular seaside resort of Les Sables d’Olonne.
Reliant upon lowland agriculture, Vendée attracts tourists with its rustic beauty and sustains the appeal with superb food and wines. The local Parthenay beef, salt-marsh lamb, seafood, seasonal fruits, nuts and Vix wine are highly regarded.
Chateaux, renaissance architecture and a magnificent cathedral reward visitors to the pretty town of Fontenay-le-Comte. Nearby, ancient forests along the course of the flooded Vendée river make irresistible walking and picnicking areas.
River-barrages form many twisting lakes among the dense Vendée bocage woodland, while the Marais or ‘Green Venice’ in the south is a picturesque network of canals through verdant farmland.
Attractive sands and rocky beaches at Sables d’Olonne conceal the harbour-complex that start the Vendée Globe yacht race. The region is known as the ‘Coast of Light’, enjoying as much sunshine as the Riviera.
To the north, the shellfish-and-samphire island of Noirmoutier is accessible by a three-mile tidal causeway. Offshore, the rugged Ile d’Yeu gives visitors a very real sense of escape. Our luxury holiday villas in Vendée are highly popular but, unsurprisingly, it is also a favourite holiday destination with the French themselves.
