The Residence



Les Maisons du Lac are located in the Vendée region of France, in the town of Saint Jean de Monts. Just 250m from the glittering waters of a lake and a five minute walk from the golden sands of the Atlantic coastline, this is the ideal place for those wanting to immerse themselves in the stunning natural surroundings of the area.

Those wanting to enjoy a range of activities during their stay at Les Maisons du Lac will find plenty of amenities in the local area. The Golf de Saint Jean de Monts course is located close by, as well as the Thelasso spa. Further afield, guests can visit Nantes for shopping, restaurants and bars, or the historic town of La Roche-sur-Yon.


The Houses

Enjoying stunning natural surroundings on the doorstep, Madame Vacances’ Les Maisons du Lac are the ideal base for nature lovers and families looking to enjoy plenty of action within a serene atmosphere. All of the cottages are built in a traditional French style, with pretty whitewashed walls, orange slate roofs and blue shutters on most of the windows.

Each of the cottages at Les Maisons du Lac has its own private garden where guests can relax and enjoy the sunshine. Choose from cottages sleeping from four to six people, with a parking space available for each, ideal for those wanting the freedom renting a car brings. There is a living room and dining room for guests to relax in after an action packed day, and a kitchen to cook and eat as and when suits you. There is also a children’s club for two half days a week (Monday – Friday), which runs activities for children aged 4-12.


Board Options

All of the cottages at Les Maisons du Lac are self-catered and offer a kitchenette where guests can prepare their own meals. There are plenty of restaurants in the nearby area, with the centre of the town just a five minute walk away from the cottages. Offering French and international food, and some delicious local seafood dishes, guests can enjoy the very best of the region’s cuisine during their stay here. Pick up goodies for a picnic at the market nearby, the Proxi shop just 785m away, or head to the Super U or Intermarché supermarkets, which are just 2.5km away, to stock up.


The Resort


Les Maisons du Lac

A seaside town with a long promenade, pretty beach huts and a long expanse of golden sands, holidays in Saint Jean de Monts are ideal for water babies. The lake area is ideal for swimming, or the beach is just a five minute walk away, and there are plenty of water sports available. The town itself is more built up than most French seaside towns, with plenty of activities, shops, bars, restaurants and cafés to be explored. And there are opportunities to relax too, with a golf course just minutes from the town centre, as well as the Thelasso spa where guests can enjoy being pampered from head to toe with natural sea salt therapy.

Nantes, La Rochelle and La Roche-sur-Yon are all just under two hours’ drive away, giving visitors access to further attractions, historic sights and activities.

One of the main attractions of a holiday at Madame Vacances’ Les Maisons du Lac is the proximity of the fantastic golf course. Here you can play your way around the green, surrounded by stunning scenery and quiet pine forests. Guests who would rather completely relax can head to the Thelasso spa, which is just a five minute walk from the cottages and will have you soaking, unwinding and being pampered from head to toe in no time at all. Alternatively, choose from the vast golden sands of the beach, or head to the freshwater beaches around the lake and stretch out as you soak up the warm sunshine.

There are plenty of water sports and activities on offer, with both the sea and the lake to choose from during your stay. Sea fishing can be arranged locally, with visitors able to hire a boat or book a trip with expert fishermen, or for something more energetic there is also sailing and even land sailing available. Those wanting to explore the area should book a horse riding trip, or take to the bicycle paths and cycle along the shore or up into the forest. And for really adventurous little ones there is always the tree top adventure course which will have them balancing like a pro in no time.


Things to see

A trip to Le Puy du Fou will keep both adults and children entertained with its educational shows and exhibitions providing interesting insights into the history of France alongside breath-taking stunts and drama.

Those wanting to soak up some of the culture of the area should head to the nearby Cathedral of Luçon, which is a 12th century building visible from miles away.

The Zoo of Sables d’Olonne offers visitors the chance to get up close and personal with over 500 species, including lions, leopards, monkeys, penguins and more.
