The 2018 Tour de France

The ‘Grand Depart’ comes to the Vendee in 2018. There is a chance to see it on three days; the first stage: Saturday 7 July starts in Noirmoutier and goes right past Le Village du Bois – just walking distance from us. The second day (Sunday 8th), circumnavigates La Roche-sur-Yon, passing through the towns of Sainte Flaive des Loups and Nieul-le-Dolent both within easy cycling distance. The third (Monday 9th) centres on Cholet – just one hour’s drive (or a good day’s cycling there and back) away.

We are offering a special 11 night ‘Tour’ package from Tuesday 3rd to Saturday 14th July and also, because of the adjustment to our normal schedules, a special low cost pre-tour 10 night package offer from Saturday 23rd June to Tuesday 3rd July.

Welcome to Le Village du Bois

In the sunny south Vendée, this is a perfect setting for a wonderful holiday for couples, friend and family groups. It is very close to the coast (5 minutes) with excellent on-site facilities. You can relax beside the superb, heated pool, walk or cycle on the many unspoilt lanes, footpaths and coastal routes, visit one of the nearby beautiful sandy beaches, or explore the wonderful local places of interest.

The high quality, individually designed gites are situated on a peaceful, secure eight acre farm and parkland complex in the tranquil Vendeen countryside. Residential, relaxing and recreational areas are car free and there is ample guest parking space.
