Vendée North

vendee edited 
The Vendée is nestled in the north west of France and is famed for the broad sweep of Atlantic coast that hugs the region. There’s also the quaint Île de Re, the perfect holiday island with its beaches, pretty ports and charming historical towns. Miles of beach and wide expanses of sea come as standard with any trip to the Vendée, but there is a lot more to explore if you can tear yourself away from the coast. Think wine-tasting, hiking, medieval games and comedy festivals…

Brittany

brittany
It’s the shortest of hops to the longest of coastlines. If you’re into bucket and spades there’s mile after mile of sandy beaches, rock pools, lighthouses and sailing regattas in the summer. If you’re into ice buckets and white wine, there are chic towns and peaceful hamlets where you can goggle at traditional Breton costumes and lace headdresses being worn from a seaside restaurant.

Traditional southern France meets quirky Catalonia...it’s like two holidays in one!
