About the neighborhood
The Vendee has many great opportunities for cycling, swimming, fishing, sailing, sunbathing, surfing and walking. <BR>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.<BR>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.
