We had a really lovely holiday. The accommodation was perfect for us and our young children. All the home comforts you need, lovely pool and really easy access to the beach which our toddler loved! We will definitely be coming back.

We stayed here in July/August 2017. We had perfect weather but I think this place would be perfect, no matter what the weather. There are so many items to keep you happy and occupied. Excellent bikes, body boards, table tennis table, floats, indoor games, DVDs,...More

I loved it here; from the pool to the hammock, the comfort of the loungers, the roof terrace that shows off the best sunsets, to the relaxed and beautifully designed bedrooms and interiors. But the best bits are all the additional details - the boules...More

About the neighborhood
La Tranche-sur-Mer is a very typical, unspoilt, family-friendly seaside town with a very 'French' atmosphere. In the summer months the town organises many activities, mostly free, including live performances ranging from folk and jazz to rock bands. There is an excellent twice-weekly market and a wide variety of good restaurants, bars and shops. In La Terriere itself there is a baker, bar and hotel/restaurant. Our local beach 'La Terriere Plage' is, without doubt, the best in the area. It is well-supervised, has a large car park and several snack bars and two surf schools. The beach is huge and it is easy to get away from the crowds, if you wish. There is an official 'clothing optional' area a short distance from the main beach.
Car not needed
How to get there
Airport: La Rochelle: 39.8 mi
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!
