Vendée Océan, simply happiness

Close to Nantes, imagine a 100% natural holiday, curled up on the Atlantic coast, at the foot of the horizon. Imagine a seaside destination on the doorstep of the islands of Noirmoutier and Yeu, bathed in sunshine and sea spray all year round. Imagine an ideal area to explore in the Vendée, where small pleasures make big moments, in the curves of the dunes, in the shade of the maritime pines or in the calm of the ocean.
