About the neighborhood
The Vendee has many great opportunities for cycling, swimming, fishing, sailing, sunbathing, surfing and walking. The Normandelière at Brétignolles sur-mer is a great beach with a créperie in the dunes. There is also a sea lake nearby which is ideal for young children. Other great beaches include the Grande Plage at St Gilles, and the famous bow shaped beach at Les Sables d'Olonne. There are miles of new cycle paths along the coast and through the countryside. If you like rambling, you will enjoy the scenic lake Jaunay. The Puy du Fou Park is one of the most famous attractions the Vendée has to offer and is only a 70 minute drive from Dolphin Gites.
How to get there
Fly or drive? The choice is yours. You can fly into Nantes and hire a car, or you can drive from the UK crossing the Channel by ferry or tunnel. We are located about 3 hours' drive from the Channel port of St Malo, and about half a day's drive from the other main ports of Cherbourg, Caen and Le Havre. There are daily flights to and from Nantes airport from the UK, USA and Ireland. You can fly into Nantes, hire a car at the airport for the duration of your stay at Dophin Gites.  We are about 1 hour's drive from Nantes airport. If you are flying from the UK, look at Flybe or from Ireland, Ryanair for cheap flights. The earlier you book your flight, the cheaper the flight.
