The Department of La Vendée (85), named after the river that runs through it, is located on the Atlantic coast between Brittany and La Rochelle. At only 8,5 hours away from London you can spend a great holiday. (link ?)
Les Aulnettes located in the Southwest of the Vendée, is a region that has, for some unexplained reason, a favorable microclimate to enjoy.
According to experts, the weather in the southern Vendee is equal to that of the Riviera, but with the difference that in addition to the 2,500 hours of sunshine a year, there is enough rainfall to ensure a lush green landscape, and better yet, there is no Mistral and Tramontane blows here.
With an average summer temperature of 25 ° C it is great to have somewhere to go to cool down so there are over 80 miles of predominantly sandy beaches to choose from! Surrounded by beautiful countryside and forests there are numerous picnic areas as well as an abundance of little towns and villages, where there is always a lot to do. Beautiful places to spend an afternoon’s walk! Just five minutes away and if you prefer you can visit the Marais Poitevin and take a canoe on the canal. Perfect!
