Sainte Cécile and the Local Area
The towns of Set Cécile and Chantonnay are close by, and have many shops, restaurants and supermarkets. Many of the local villages have their own restaurants, many with great views over lakes and forests.
The beaches are about 50 minutes away - with Les Sables d'Olonne and La Tranche being the closest.
There are many other tourist attractions within 30 minutes - including the fantastic Puy du Fou Theme Park - a great day out for all of the family. (Gladiators, Vikings, Musketeers and a Bird of Prey show, along with a sound and light show ending in an amazing firework display.)
The forests and lakes at Mervent, the artist showrooms at Vouvant and the ruined abbeys at Maillezais are all worth a visit. La Rochelle and the Ile de Ré are both popular tourist attractions, as is the Marais Poitevin network of canals and the local wine routes.

We have had a lovely 2 weeks here.
Thank you for making us feel so welcome - a real home from home for us & our boys. This is a great central location for sampling the Vendee & making most of the weather - when it got very hot, especially last week, we really enjoyed the pool.
We would recommend the following for children 5-8 years from our own time here for family days out -
Taking a forest trail @ Mervent forest; having an adventure in the trees @ Le Grand Defi, St Julien des Landes; Jard-sur-mer beach; chateau de Saint Mesmin for little wanna be knights; canoeing le lac de L'Angle Guignard (15 mins from gite) & of course The Puy du Fou!

We have had a lovely week here. It has been lovely to see Stanley. My favourite thing was doing a bungy jump at the Indian Forest. Bye bye from Abigail. Our second stay here and it was every bit as good as we remembered it. Thank you for the lovely welcome. The house is beautiful and the pool, the swings and of course Stanley, were a real hit ! Les Conches has become our new Vendee beach of choice and the visit to Les Machines in Nantes was a highlight also, Hope to see you again soon...
