Les Sables d'Olonne and the Local Area
The long, flat beach stretches for miles and is very safe for swimming and water activities. You can walk to the beach from the apartment, or drive to one of the other parts of this long beach. Cafes and restaurants are strung along the water front, so you are never far from refreshments.
The town itself is great for shopping and has an old covered market hall in the centre. There are several museums nearby and the area is famous for its sea salt production. You can visit Les Salines on the estuary, where salt is still made in the traditional way.
The Vendée has many tourist attractions, most within an hour of Les Sables - such as Karting Tracks, Golf Courses, sailing & fishing trips, wine tours, forest adventure parks and a chateau with a treasure trail. There are also many farms to visit - where you can taste the local honey, fruits, and meat products.
Further afield is the amazing Puy du Fou Theme Park - with its Gladiators, Vikings, Musketeers, Medieval Knights and Bird of Prey show. Not to be missed!
La Rochelle and the Ile de Ré are both popular tourist attractions, as is the Marais Poitevin network of canals and ruined abbeys.

This is our 3rd year staying at La Marcellière, we love coming here! Iona and Barry have thought about all the little bits that make a self catering holiday so much easier, clingfilm, spare essentials, milk to get that first cuppa etc. The flat is in a perfect location, very quiet but a lovely 15 -20 mins stroll to the beach or into town or 5-10 mins walk to the big supermarkets. Needless to say, we will be back again.
Gareth, August 2016.
The apartment is very spacious and very comfortable. All of the essential items are provided such as toilet roll, kitchen roll, tea bags and every kitchen implement you could ever need! The under apartment parking is fantastic as there is no worry about finding a space or your car being unbearably hot when you get in it. The beach is a pleasant 10 minute stroll but the main restaurants and bars are a good half hour walk away. There is a restaurant much nearer but we found the prices a bit steep. The area is very quiet so, if you don't mind walking or driving in the evening then this is a perfect place to stay.
