Le Vieux Logis, l'un des six gîtes de Dolphin Gîtes à La Chaize-Giraud, est idéal pour des vacances en famille, avec sa piscine chauffée de fin mai à mi-septembre, à 5 km de la mer et des plages agréables de Brétignolles sur mer. Nos gîtes sont situés entre Saint-Gilles Croix de Vie à 12 km au nord et Les Sables d'Olonne à 18km au sud.
Dolphin gîtes is situated in the attractive coastal village of La Chaize Giraud, in the North of Vendée between Les Sables d'Olonne and St Gilles-Croix de Vie. The village is 5 km from the seaside town of Brétignolles sur mer, 10 minutes from the fishing port of St Gilles (to the North) and 20 minutes from the resort of Les Sables d'Olonne (to the South).
Le restaurant La Chaize Gourmande est à 3 minutes à pied et la supérette Spar à 1 km. Le magnifique Lac du Jaunay est à 10 minutes en voiture et Le Puy du Fou à une bonne heure. Les plages de Brétignolles sur mer sont à quelques minutes en voiture et la piste cyclable vers la côte commence à 50 m de nos gîtes.
The nearest restaurant, La Chaize Gourmande is a 2 minute walk from the gîtes and there is a Spar shop in the next village, a 10 minute walk. The beautiful Jaunay lake is 10 mins away by car, the famous Puy du Fou theme park just over an hour away. It takes just a few minutes by car to reach Brétignolles sur mer and its beautiful beaches. The cycle path leading to the coast starts just outside our gîtes.
