How to get here

We are located in the commune called the Vendée which is a department in the Pays de la Loire region in western France. 

Our villas are less than 3hr30 hours drive from St-Malo, approx. 4hrs from Caen and 5hrs Cherbourg so very easy to access by car. 

We are only approx. 1hr15 & 1hr30 from the airports of Nantes and La Rochelle.

Travelling by Ferry

Brittany Ferries

Brittany Ferries offers the most convenient cross channel ferries to France, with the widest choice of ferry crossings.  Speed across the Channel from Portsmouth to Cherbourg or Cherbourg to Poole on their fast-craft service to France.

What's more, you can mix and match their high-speed service with any of their  cruise sailings to make your perfect itinerary.  Convenient early morning departures from Portsmouth aboard Liberation mean you'll be in Normandy in time for lunch, allowing plenty of time to reach our villas by the 5pm check-in time. 


The return late morning sailing departs Cherbourg for Poole, getting you back to the UK in the early afternoon.
