Vendée Property For Sale

Map of Loire

The Vendée enjoys an all-year-round mild climate, 250 kilometres of white sandy beaches and easy access from three surrounding airports and the TGV. It’s also just a leisurely morning’s drive from the channel ports.

As such Vendée property is an ideal choice for families looking to relocate or holiday. Or why not combine the two and relocate to cater for the holiday makers?

The most expensive property is on the coast with property in Les Sables d’Olonne taking the top spot over La Tranche sur Mer, Jard sur Mer and Saint Gilles Croix de Vie.

But cheaper Vendée property can found inland, especially in the rural south-east around Vouvant where there are lots of pretty stone cottages and old farmhouses just waiting to be renovated. If you come across one with a “potager” (a centuries old stone-built oven) do NOT rip it out – cherish this rare part of Vendée’s heritage by making it the centrepiece of your kitchen!

The most famous coastal resort is Les Sables d’Olonne; with its gently sloping beaches, safe bathing, long promenade and quayside restaurants this is the family-friendly holiday destination ‘par excellence’. It even boasts its own TGV station for quick connections to Paris and beyond. Les Sables d’Olonne property will guarantee a healthy rental income.

You’ll need to push the boat out for Noirmoutier property and Ile d’Yeu property but these enchanting islands are favourites with chic French families who return year after year down the generations.

Pretty towns drawing vast numbers of tourists (perfect for setting up a B&B) include Fontenay le Comte, Vouvant, Foussais Payré, Pouzauges and Maillezais. Fontenay le Comte property and Vouvant property both offer easy access to nearby Mervant Forest (also called the Mervent-Vouvant forest). Covering a massive 5,000 hectares this is paradise for walking, mountain-biking and horse-riding enthusiasts (and with two rivers and many lakes you can also hire canoes, kayaks, sailing boats and motor boats!)

Maillezais property would be a rock solid investment as this picturesque town becomes the summer home of thousands of tourists who come to explore the emerald green waterways of the Marais Poitevin (the ‘Green Venice’). Similarly Pouzauges would make an excellent base for tourists visiting the annual Puy de Fou ‘son et lumière’ open-air extravaganzas.

While the Vendée doesn’t have its own airport it is surrounded by those of Nantes, La Rochelle and Poitiers. There are two daily TGVs between Les Sables d’Olonne and Paris and there’s a handy TGV stop at La Roche sur Yonne in the very centre of the Vendée.
