The house is also only located 100 meters from the Bourgenay marina where 600 boats anchor. The port is accessible on foot and you will find sea excursions, fishing trips, water sport hire (Jet skies) bars, ice cream parlors and restaurants overlooking the marina.
Within a 15 minute walk, by the coastal path, you'll also be be at the wonderful beach of Veillon (voted by The Telegraph as one of the BEST beaches on the Vendee coast) and is currently classified as World Heritage of Unesco
5 minutes by car (or a 10 minutes by bike along the cycle paths) is the prestigious bay of Cayola and a little further on is the large seaside city of Sables d'Olonne which is just perfect for water sports enthusiasts, and has wide long sandy beaches and boasts some amazing chic boutiques as well as high end restaurants offering excellent fresh seafood.
For the more athletic: two surf and bodyboard spots are also nearby: the spot called “Rock Fighter” by experienced surfers, just in front of the house; the spot of Veillon - surfers all levels (where you are supervised) wakeboard or kite-surf clubs.
A golf course with two 18-hole courses is 3 minutes away by car and 10 minutes on foot.
In the summer months the marina organises special events including fun days, evening entertainers, jazz and blues nights, firework displays and night markets. You can sit with the locals and enjoy 'moules & frites' listening to a band watching the kids dance to their hearts content.
Everything is easily accessible from the villa, and thats why it's HUGELY popular with families wanting everything on their doorstep.
