Angles and the Local Area
The town is only 10 minute's drive from several of the great beaches - with Les Conches and La Terrière being the closest - and great for surfing and body boarding. There is also a karting track nearby, a Chateau with a treasure trail, a Tropical Garden with lotus Lake and the O'Fun Adventure Park (swinging through the trees & lots of other activities) all within 20 minutes away.
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.

Reviews for Gite des Forges
We had another fantastic fortnight - if a bit hot! We seamed to acquire a cat - although we did nothing to attract it.
Too hot to cook on BBQ - Just sat around really - fruit & veg from the market. Thank goodness we have survived the past three years. Here's to the next.
Simon & Natalie, Slough. August 2022
This was a very last minute booking, what a find it was! Like it was meant to be.
The property is fantastically positioned in the centre of a bustling village with a popular market twice a week. "Cave' next door does local and regional wines, very welcoming.
We quickly settled into a morning routine of a coffee at the bar and selections of goodies at the boulangerie before heading off for a walk. Walks we liked: Port Bourgenay, Lac du Finfarine, The Dukes at La Faute sur Mer. We stayed with our spaniel who loved the walks and beaches.
Our favourite beaches were: Le Rocher and Beach at St Vincent.
If you venture to the Ile de Ré - it's a 90 minute drive. Best to go early as it gets busy and parking is at a premium. The toll is €16.
We loved our stay. It's the 2nd time visiting the region. First with our dog. Beaches are dog friendly as are restaurants with outside seating. The Veterinary centre in Angles was excellent, easy to book with the help of Annette. Highly recommended.
Annette was quick to respond to a query on the vets. She was very communicative during both booking and departing. Thank you for having us.

A fantastic week at the gîte des Forges - we're just very sad it wasn't two weeks!
We know the area fairly well, so it has been a pleasure to revisit old haunts, We have really enjoyed the beach at Les Conches. Bourgenay/Query Pigeon is also well worth a visit. The beach at La Terrière is great but this is now a paying car park. The others are free to park at.
The Cave next door is excellent value. The market in Angles (Sunday & Wednesday am) are great for veg/fruit and be sure to keep an eye out for the brocante at the football stadium (Fridays during peak season)
We ate out in La Tranche this week. The Hotel de l'Atlantique is good for fish. The Grill de la Forge is good for steak and burgers. Tonight we visited Pizza Rico - great pasta & pizza. Be sure to enjoy an ice cream from one of the shops towards the seafront.
Looking forward to our next visit.
Peter & Sheila, High Wycombe. July 2022
Brilliant place to stay, we loved it! The cave next door is brilliant fun, and great value.
Helen & Ron, May until September 2020
Your longest visitors!!
Living here is slightly different to holidays but we have still managed to enjoy ourselves and make use of the local amenities. We would like to return one day especially to see the lovely neighbours - Collette & Philippe.
David & Clare. September 2019
Lovely little gîte - secluded and very quiet. Well equipped with a comfortable bed.
The village of La Tranche is beautiful - well worth a visit. Les Sables d'Olonne was closed when we visited on Monday! Although the promenade was lovely.
Found a wonderful beach at La Faute sur Mer after trailing around at L'Aiguillon and being disappointed at the Porte d'Aiguillon. This was the Handicappé Plage at La Faute sur Mer on the road from La Tranche. The beach was idyllic - later we had a lovely meal - very reasonably priced at the Cul de Poule restaurant on the main street just down from the casino. The waitresses were friendly, polite and spoke English very well. Definitely one to go back to. This beach has to be our favourite so far.
The little bakery next to the PMU sells gorgeous strawberry cakes - how I only had one all week I'll never know.
Visited the Cambuse restaurant for our last night. The Fois Gras was beautiful - sadly the Fishman had not been so we ended up having Faux Fillet de Boeuf.
All in all, we've had a wonderful week here - the weather has been warm to roasting - and the area is just beautiful - Feel Worth another visit.
Thank you Annette for helping us out with the induction hob!!
Mel & Family. August 2019.
Lovely village and favourite restaurant 'La Trattoria' was very child friendly.
Les Conches - huge waves and body boarding
Les Roullieres - at La Tranche sur Mer
WIBIT Splash Park and lagoon beach at L'Aiguillon sur Mer.
Fab festival in the village with live music and dancing with tables to eat lining the square!
Weather has been amazing!
The Miles Family. August 2019.
Restaurant in the village is good value. Patron will practise his English.
Visit the Steile on the way to Les Conches and the cemetery in the village. Not a lot of fun for the children perhaps, but the village really appreciated the Commonwealth WWII loses. Google Helifax 9527. Really fascinating.
Ollie & Helen. August 2018.
Amazing week in Angles. Weather was up and down, but even when cloudy the sea was great! (Waves made it easy to get in!). Favourite beach was Les Conches - clean and lovely sandy place to relax. Hired canoes at the Venise Verte - so beautiful there. Great Stay!!
Pinkerton Family. August 2018.
We stayed in Curzon last year & the year before and all of us agree staying in your beautiful gite in a very welcoming village has been a wonderful change and experience. The house had all we needed and was beautifully presented when we arrived. weather has been fab, would recommend heading into the village on market days. A wonderful place to live for 2 weeks.
PS: Wine Cave next door is a bargain and fabulous!!
David & Jennie, Cornwall, 2017.
Another lovely stay at Gite des Forges, Angles. We shall be back!
Melanie & Michael, Leics, 2017.
We have had a lovely fortnight, thank you. The weather was a bit unsettled but much worse at home!
There is everything you need within a five minute walk. All the beaches are within a 10 minute drive.
Recommend: Les Roches beach, Les Conches beach, all local shops, market on Sunday & Wednesday, The Stele - war graves in the cemetery.
We really didn't want to go home, but the lawn and hedges call!
