Booking procedure, directions, quality of the villa and it's contents along with the service from the owner made this a fantastic break that was above and beyond our expectations. The villa and setting are both beautiful and ideal as a base... more

Railway: La Roche sur Yon: 25.5 mi
Ferry: St. Malo: 188.3 mi
La Tranche is ideally located on the west coast of France, far enough south to enjoy a different climate but close enough to be within reasonable travel distance for families. The nearest channel ferry port is St.Malo at 3.5 hours drive time with Cherbourg, Caen, Roscoff and Le Havre being up to 1.5 hours more. It is also possible to travel from Calais within a day.
Travel arrangements by a combination of train and bus are quite possible, although some of our guests have preferred to take a taxi for the last stage to La Tranche itself. Bringing a car is not essential as everything is within easy cycling or walking distance. If our bikes do not suit you, others can be hired locally. Cars can also be hired locally for day trips, even from the the local supermarket!
