The southern Vendee is located on the Western coast of France, just 3 hours drive south from the St Malo ferry terminal, 1 hour south of Nantes and 45 minutes north west of La Rochelle.
We have a selection of homes available direct from sellers throughout the Vendee, Deux Sevres & Charente - comprising of village houses, traditional longeres, farmhouses & gite complexes in rural, hamlet and pretty village locations. Although the area is famous for green and rural landscapes & a slower pace of life, none of our properties are more than a 15 minute drive from a large town with all services, shops & restaurants.
The landscape is often described as looking like Dorset with a pace of life similar to that in the UK 50 years ago! With rolling countryside, large forests plus many rivers and lakes, the region makes an idyllic environment for a holiday home or full time residence.
The region has been voted by the French as the 3rd most desired department to live in – what better recommendation could you have!
The area is steeped in history and offers much to see and do. Many of the advertised properties are located within an hours drive of the vast clean sandy beaches offered by famous resorts such as Les Sables d’ Olonne, Le Tranche sur Mer and Ile de Re.
Vendee Climate -
The whole area benefits from a micro-climate and has the 2nd highest annual hours of sunshine in France. This makes the region an excellent location for a tourist related business venture such as gites or B&B
Family life & Education -
The French education system provides excellent facilities for children of all ages. Almost all the local villages have a choice of either small private school, with term fees of just 50! or a state school, all with small class numbers. For older children colleges can be found in every large town.
All of the properties we list have been advertised by the sellers as private sales. All sellers are English speaking. Deal direct, buy direct - No estate agency commissions to pay.
