With restaurants and a twice-weekly market just a stroll away and the sweeping sandy beaches of the Vendée coastline within a very short drive, Villa de la Camaraderie is a delight for multi-generational families or a group of friends with a particular emphasis on child-friendly features in this beautiful holiday home.

Expect homely comforts alongside touches of elegance across this 6-bedroom villa ideal for eight adults in four inviting doubles and up to seven children across the two children’s bedrooms. The air-conditioned lounge is great for a movie night with its Smart TV and extensive DVD library whilst the kitchen is brilliantly equipped for all your family needs, including the all-important Nespresso machine and wine cooler. The playroom is bound to bring hours of fun as children discover toys, dressing-up clothes, a château themed ball pit and chalkboard. Pretty windows open out to the south facing terrace and chimney-style barbecue making leisurely al-fresco dining a joy as little ones play.

Outside, the enclosed garden offers space beneath the trees for games on the grass and a fenced-in swimming pool which can be heated together with an indulgent hot tub just for the grown-ups. You can also make the most of the park next door with its play equipment, pétanque court, ping-pong and room for a kick around.

Wander a few minutes into the heart of the small local village which comes alive with summer festivities, not to mention its twice weekly market where you can find fresh regional produce including seafood from the Atlantic coast. Pick up your morning croissants from the boulangerie, stop off for a coffee in the village square, shop in the nearby supermarket and dine out in welcoming French bistros.

Of course there’s the glorious sandy beaches so near, just 5 to 10-minutes by car whether you are seeking remote spots for scenic surfing or family-friendly blue-flag beaches with snack bars and a diverse range of watersports. Walk down the seaside promenade in La Tranche-sur-Mer, 13km away, with its ‘Famille Plus’ designation, perhaps followed by sandcastle building, pedalo hire and even a try at paddle boarding, sea-kayaking or kite-surfing.  

The edge of the peaceful Marais Poitevin is close by, perfect for canoeing and kayaking along its waterways, or discover this protected 100,000-hectare nature reserve on foot, bike or by boat. The beauty of Île de Ré also awaits, easily reached by summer boat from La Tranche-sur-Mer, or drive two hours north to experience the wines, châteaux and heritage of the Loire valley.

Then there’s France’s largest tree-top activity centre within half an hour as well as several family attractions including go-karting, water parks and a wealth of adventures for every age.

Villa de la Camaraderie is set in a typical small French village close to the sea, just a 5-minute drive from the coast in the Vendée department of western France.  

You can be in the heart of the village within around 300m where you will find a selection of small shops and good cafes/restaurants as well as a twice-weekly market on a Monday and Friday morning which sells fresh regional produce including seafood. The village is especially atmospheric in the summer months – look out for festivities, fireworks and special events that may be taking place during your stay.

There is a tennis court to hire on the outskirts of the village and right next to the villa is a public park with play equipment (swing, slide, climbing frames etc), a picnic area, gazebo, pétanque, ping-pong and a green area which is ideal for ballgames.

It’s only a 4km drive down to the vast sandy beach, backed by nature and woodland. Pack a picnic and make the most of the beautiful surroundings on this wild stretch of beach which is also popular with surfers. Only slightly further, family-friendly Plage des Conches (5km) is home to surf schools whilst Plage de la Terrière (11km) is one of the many blue-flag beaches along the Vendée coastline.

La Tranche-sur-Mer (13km) is a much-loved beachside resort with its ‘Famille Plus’ designation, blue-flag sandy beaches and attractive promenade. Watersport activities in La Tranche-sur-Mer include surfing, pedal boats, sea kayaking, paddle boarding and banana rides as well as a separate body of the water, Le Circle Nautique Tranchais, where you can try out sailing, kitesurfing and windsurfing.

Nature lovers will adore the nearby Marais Poitevin, also known as the ‘Green Venice’, where activities include hiking, cycling, bird-watching, canoeing, kayaking, fishing and boat rides along its canals. There are also horse-riding opportunities within a short drive as well as go-karting, a huge tree-top activity centre, water parks and adventure parks. Further afield, for an absolutely fantastic family day out, the famous theme park Puy du Fou, known to be one of the best in the world, is around 90km by car.

From La Tranche-sur-Mer boats depart to the idyllic Île de Ré, an incredible island best explored by bike with its vast beaches, nature reserves, salt marshes and characterful market villages. Its capital, Saint-Martin-de-Re, is full of history as well as being home to several restaurants, a pretty harbour and a much-loved ice-cream parlour!

The elegant city of La Rochelle (74km) is another fine day out or head north towards Nantes (110km) and the Loire. Some of the gems of the Loire valley can also be reached within a couple of hours such as gorgeous Saumur, famed for its Cadre-Noir horse-riding school and sparkling white wine, and historic Angers, a UNESCO World Heritage site.

There are several superb beaches within a 5 to 10-minute drive from the vast sandy shores of the local beach, 4km by car, backed by nature and popular with surfers, to La Tranche-sur-Mer (13km) with its ‘Famille Plus’ designation, attractive promenade, blue-flag beaches and a diverse range of watersports.

Reviews

  • We had a fantastic time

    on 05/06/2023

    The equipment supplied is extremely well thought out, we have never seen such an extensive kids DVD collection! The whole villa is safe for the children particularly the pool areas which to us was a must. (4 kids under 5yrs old) The village is wonderful and has everything you could ever need. You must visit the Friday market wish is extensive and interesting to wander around and sells local fruit, veg and other goodies. We visited the local beaches but you really do have everything you need in the villa. The gardens and outdoor areas are just outstanding. Keep doing what you do, you do not need to improve or tailor your service! Overall we had a fantastic time at Villa De La Camaraderie and I would certainly recommend you - thank you to the owner for all the personal touches and thoughtful extra items.
