The county town of La Roche-sur-Yon is 15 minutes away and offers big hypermarkets and shops, plus a large indoor shopping mall.

Vast sandy beaches with EC Blue Flag award; the resort of La Tranche-sur-Mer is
15 minutes, Les Sables-d'Olonne 30 minutes, and La Rochelle 1 hour. There are many local places of interest, and the famous 'son et lumière' of Le Puy-du-Fou and its day-time 'Grand Parc', Futuroscope, La Venise Verte and the Ile de Ré are also within easy reach.

As this is the heart of the Vendée's wine-producing area, there is a good selection of restaurants nearby. This part of the coast - known as 'La Côte de Lumière' - is famous for its long sunny days and its sunshine record second only to that of the South of France.
