    Location description

    Gites des Forges is set in a quiet lane in the pretty town of Angles in the southern Vende, only 10 minutes from the beaches of La Tranche sur Mer. The area is famous for its good weather and summers are long and usually hot! The Vende is the 2nd sunniest part of France after the Mediterranean.

    The area is criss-crossed with canals and waterways and much of the land has been reclaimed from the sea over the centuries and there are many interesting tourist attractions to visit, including the Indian Adventure Park, The Chateau des Aventuriers with its treasure trail, the fantastic Puy du Fou theme park and the Marais Poitevin Regional Park.

    The main attraction is the coastline - with miles of beaches, surrounded by pine forests with lots of picnic areas and cycle paths.

    Other activities

    There is a weekly market in Angles and throughout the summer months there are many festivals and ftes held in the surrounding towns and villages.

    Local events

    La Tranche sur Mer is the nearest seaside town to the gite and here you will find plenty to entertain you - during the day and evenings. There are many ice cream parlours, souvenir shops and restaurants selling locally caught seafood. Musical evenings and organised events are often held throughout the summer months.

    Tourist attractions

    There are many tourist attractions all within a short drive - ranging from mini-golf, horse-riding and water parks to historic buildings and scenic countryside.

    Directions

    Gite des Forges is located in the town of Angles, which is approximately a 50-60 minute drive from La Rochelle Airport and 80 minutes from the airport at Nantes. Both airports are served by budget airlines such as Ryanair, FlyBe, EasyJet and Jet2.

    Car hire is available at both airports.

    If you are binging your own car with you, then St Malo is the closest of the northern ferry ports - at only 3.5 hours away. Caen is 4.5 hours away, Cherbourg is 5.5 hours away and Calais/ Euro Tunnel is 6.5 hours away.

    Helen & Ron, May until September 2020
    Your longest visitors!!
    Living here is slightly different to holidays but we have still managed to enjoy ourselves and make use of the local amenities. We would like to return one day especially to see the lovely neighbours - Collette & Philippe.

    David & Clare. September 2019
    Lovely little gte - secluded and very quiet. Well equipped with a comfortable bed.
    The village of La Tranche is beautiful - well worth a visit. Les Sables d'Olonne was closed when we visited on Monday! Although the promenade was lovely.
    Found a wonderful beach at La Faute sur Mer after trailing around at L'Aiguillon and being disappointed at the Porte d'Aiguillon. This was the Handicapp Plage at La Faute sur Mer on the road from La Tranche. The beach was idyllic - later we had a lovely meal - very reasonably priced at the Cul de Poule restaurant on the main street just down from the casino. The waitresses were friendly, polite and spoke English very well. Definitely one to go back to. This beach has to be our favourite so far.
    The little bakery next to the PMU sells gorgeous strawberry cakes - how I only had one all week I'll never know.
    Visited the Cambuse restaurant for our last night. The Fois Gras was beautiful - sadly the Fishman had not been so we ended up having Faux Fillet de Boeuf.
    All in all, we've had a wonderful week here - the weather has been warm to roasting - and the area is just beautiful - Feel Worth another visit.
