Jard-sur-Mer Ref: FVE016

Near to the beach

Vendée

This house has large, comfortable and cared for spaces and is located next to beautiful woodland left in its natural state. The adjacent terrace lounge offers moments of relaxation for any holiday.

Situated halfway between Les Sables d’Olonne and la Tranche-sur-Mer, the town of Jard-sur-Mer is 3km from the coast. It boasts typical narrow streets with the small white washed houses in the old town, which are in marked contrast to today’s rather stereotypical modern bungalows and houses that now make up most of the town.

Three kilometres to the west of Jard, nestling between the pine forest and the marshes near the pointe-du-Payre, is the abbey, Notre-Dame-de-Lieu-Dieu.

Shop and restaurant 1km, beach 3km.

Lounge/diner, kitchen, bathroom (no toilet), shower room with toilet and basin, separate toilet, 5 bedrooms: 1 double, 2 twin, 2 single.

This architect-designed, detached holiday property, has open views onto the private, heated swimming pool and the garden, as well as over the lake and fields beyond.

The biggest draw of the area is probably its beaches, such as La Tranche-sur-Mer and Les Conches, both just over half an hour away. The Domangère golf course is on the doorstep as well as a number of other golf courses within easy reach. Also worth visiting is the popular resort of Les Sables-d’Olonne, historic La Rochelle and Ile-de-Ré.
