It is just outside the seaside village of Jard sur Mer and 18kms south of the well-known resort of Les sables d'Olonne.

Principle room with bed-settee, two easy chairs (one of which turns into a comfortable single bed), dining table & chairs. French TV + DVD and a radio/cassette/CD player. Access to balcony.

Balcony - possibly its outstanding feature - secluded but south facing and sunny which looks out onto woodland. Table and chairs are provided for outside dining.
The studio is all electric and has convector heating, so is suitable for all seasons.
The 'Residence' of Parc de la Grange is like a small private village, set amongst 50 acres of evergreen oak and pine trees which reach down to the beach, which we think is possibly one of the prettiest spots on the Vendée coast. Very tranquil and an ideal getaway the Parc also benefits from a three-star hotel which offers a restaurant, a bar and tennis courts for hire. Bicycles are provided to explore the parc and surrounding area.
Just 450 metres from the sea yet tucked away in the woods, the studio is in an ideal position for a combined seaside and country holiday. Just on the outskirts of Jard sur Mer, very lively in summer, with various restaurants/bars, entertainment by the marina in summer, two weekly markets plus usual shops, supermarkets etc., but also close to an intriguing area of 'Marais,' teaming with wildlife and plants and criss-crossed with footpaths. A little further on are villages of the salt and oyster beds, continuing an ancient tradition. Talmont St Hilaire, a larger town boasting an ancient castle built by Richard the Lion Heart, leads to the beautiful area where the River Payré enters the sea at Plage de Veillon with shallow waters of a semi-lagoon. Port de Bourgenay, with its marina and golf course are a little further up the coast and then comes the traditional resort of Les Sables d'Olonne - starting place of the famous yacht race 'the Vendée Globe'.
To the south are long stretches beaches backed by sand dunes with good waves for body boarding or surfing then comes the family resort of La Tranche sur Mer.
