Bienvenue sur la Côte de Lumière
St. Gilles is a family-style seaside resort and has beautiful fine-sand beaches, which is perfect for all sorts of water activities ; if you wish, it’s even possible to take surfing lessons.
You can also wander about the pedestrian street downtown, with all its attractive shops, have a drink on the quayside harbor or a seafood platter in one of the many restaurants you can find in St. Gilles.
All year long, you can appreciate the authenticity and conviviality of this human-sized city.
The Vendée region is known to have its own a micro-climate and a comparable quantity of sunshine hours to the Mediterranean coast, so you don't have to go as far …
The area is ideal for cycling, thanks to its great cycle paths that make it possible to cycle safely to the beaches, shops, marketplace, local restaurants or bars and even visit the countryside.
If you’re coming for professional activity, we will also be pleased to welcome you at the Gîte de la Joubretière : it is 20mns by car to Challans and 35 mns to La Roche/Yon… You will have the comfort of a hotel but not the obligation to go to the restaurant every evening ….
