OVERVIEW

The Residence

 

Board Options


Les Villas de Fontenelles are all self-catered, with a fully equipped kitchen for guests to try their hand at French cooking as well as the freedom to explore the local restaurants in the area. With an extensive Atlantic coastline, the Vendée region is known for its delicious fresh fish and shellfish, as well as cured meats, made with the delicious local salt from the salt marshes.

There are two restaurants in the adjoining Residence Les Fontenelles, serving an excellent choice of classic French dishes. There is a shop within walking distance, as well as a supermarket 9km away and a hypermarket 12km away.

 

Location


Madame Vacances’ Les Villas de Fontenelles are a part of the Residence Les Fontenelles, on the fringes of an 18-hole golf course in Saint Gilles Croix de Vie. The Atlantic coastline is just 8km away, while the town of Coëx is 5km from the villas. Located on the western coast of France, the area offers some beautiful scenery and spectacular coastline, as well as delicious local cuisine and delicacies.

The Vendée region of France is known for its charming countryside and open spaces, providing plenty of opportunities to relax as well as take part in the many activities on offer. Families can enjoy the classic seaside attractions and tranquil atmosphere, while the city of Nantes is just over an hour away for those who enjoy shopping and sightseeing.

 

The Accommodation

The Resort

 

Saint Gilles Croix de Vie


The historic fishing village of Saint Gilles Croix de Vie is a popular holiday retreat for visitors looking for a blend of coastal and rural adventure, and a slowly pace of life. Wander through the village or head down to the shore to watch the boats bringing in their catch of the day, before indulging in the freshest seafood straight from the sea to the plate. With one of the world’s largest boat manufacturers, Bénéteau, celebrating its founding here, the harbour is a vibrant place to visit. A number of festivals are put on during the summer, including the popular jazz festival every May. Nantes and La Roche-sur-Yon are also both within driving distance of the village.

Find out more about your holiday in Saint Gilles Croix de Vie in our more detailed destination guide.

 

Activities


Summer guests can spend their days relaxing in the blissful French weather, stretching out on the soft golden sands of the beach and heading into the sea for a cool dip. Fishing and golf both provide an excellent way to soak up the stunning natural landscapes of the area. To completely immerse in relaxation, guests can head to one of the thalassotherapy healing spas to re-energise skin with the use of the pure and mineral-rich local waters.

With extensive countryside in and around Saint Gilles Croix de Vie, activities are plentiful. At the equestrian centre Aumarière guests can choose and prepare their own horses before exploring the area by horseback, while the Animaux de la Ferme animal park, which is 50 minutes away, is great for children who love nature. The nearby salt trail and nautical centre are both worth a visit, and there’s also table tennis and traditional petanque available.

 

Things to see

Lively Nantes, located on the Loire River, takes just over an hour by car and offers further shopping, bars, restaurants, historic sites and some gorgeous architecture.
Families will enjoy a day out to the theme park Le Puy du Fou, with historic stunt shows, exhibits and animal displays. Animal lovers should head to the Zoo des Sables d’Olonne, which is a 30 minute car journey to the south and offers a diverse range of animals, including leopards, gorillas, flamingos, lions, penguins and many more.
