"We had an absolutely fabulous holiday between biking, surfing, beaching, barbequing, and trying to buy the best shell fish and prawns for the barbeque"

"The property truly exceeded our expectations. It was spacious, superbly equipped and in a wonderful location. We have been holidaying in France, now, for several years. In terms of Value For Money, Le Pavot easily exceeds anywhere else we've stayed. We will be booking again - very soon!"

"We had a great time thank you. The pictures on the website do not do the villa justice. It far exceeded expectations"

"The weather was glorious however the best feature of all was the location, style and standard of your villa with added feature of a stunning swimming pool"

"The situation was perfect both quiet but via the cycle paths giving easy access to the town and beach"

"The beach itself was fantastic especially using body board. Though the weather was nice the fact that the pool was heated made all the difference"

The location:

Le Pavot is in a small private estate, Quichenottes, recently created in the woods near the beaches on the edge of Tranche-Sur-Mer, between the village of La Terriere and La Tranche

The remaining wooded area surrounding these secluded plots is protected and there will be no more building.There is a dedicated cycle pathway on the edge of the estate that goes direct from the property to the beach and to La Tranche (known as 'La Terriere' beach). It is just a short walk (950m) to the beaches and similar distance to La Tranche centre. In the other direction it is a short walk to the village of La Terriere with it's restaurant, bar and small selection of shops.


The Vendee Region:

Famous for numerous gently sloping beaches which are ideal for water sports or just sunbathing. The region is also noted for the 'Venise Vert' (Green Venice) canal system, and water sports and walking around the Mervent area as well as the Pierre Brune fun park for children.

For the connoisseur the Vendée is surrounded on three sides by the Loire, Cognac and Bordeaux. Inland the landscape is dominated by vineyards and sunflower fields with small villages every few miles.

Closeby are fashionable La Rochelle with its harbourside cafés and restaurants, the verdant scenery of the Haut Bocage and the unique waterways of the Marais Poitevin. Major attractions like Futuroscope and Puy du Fou are only an hour away. Added to that, there are interesting historical towns, markets, shopping centres, châteaux, museums, zoos, aquariums and a wide range of sporting venues including golf, tennis, riding.

Ideal for a quiet holiday in the sun, the Vendée is said to equal anywhere in France for hours of sunshine each year. The climate means the season extends from Easter to late October - the average monthly temperature in September is 70 degrees.

The local seaside town of
La Tranche-Sur-Mer.

Situated on the Atlantic coast in the Vendee, La Tranche sur Mer is one of the loveliest and most unspoilt holiday destinations in France.

Situated only a few degrees North of Mediterranean resorts, La Tranche offers the same annual hours of sunshine. The finest beaches in France are easy walking distance and the more adventurous can indulge in wind surfing, surf boarding, sail boarding, and water sports of every description on 9km of soft sandy beaches.

La Tranche lies between Sable d'Olonne and La Rochelle and immediately to the West of the delightful Marais area (also known as the Venise Verte, or Green Venice). It is sheltered by the historic island of Ile De Re which protects it from the Atlantic Ocean, giving it excellent safe bathing.

See 'Things to do' section of this site for more specific details on beaches, surfing, windsurfing, sailing, golf, parks, restaurants, casino etc etc.

The administrative capital of the Vendee, Roche sur Yon is a mere 40km away. The beautiful port of La Rochelle is just 45minutes to the south, and Les Sable d'Olonne a similar distance to the North. Not far to the East lies the delightful medieval city of Fontenay le Comte, and nearby to that the charming villages of Vouvant and Mervent.
