Everyone has different expectations from their holiday. The good news is that you can combine culture, relaxation, family friendly beaches and the buzz of city life and more with a holiday on the West Coast of France. Being able to mix and match your holiday experiences can provide an ideal solution when travelling in a group where there may be different requirements.
Although the main resorts can get busy in peak season, the length of the west coast of France makes it easy to find a quiet spot if you venture a little way off the beaten track. The rugged coves, traditional fishing villages and rural countryside of Brittany make this region ideal for those seeking an escape.
With a rich history and traditions that are still widely celebrated today, Brittany is also ideal for those looking for a culturally interesting destination. In addition, you can enjoy the history and traditions of the old and new wine making regions, from the Loire Valley, through Vendee and down to Bordeaux.
Paris is the most visited city in France, but there are many other cities of merit across the country. La Rochelle, a coastal city in Vendee and the city of Bordeaux both have plenty of interesting sights and attractions for visitors. They also include stylish shops, high quality restaurants and impressive architecture.
The west coast of France is famed for its lengthy expanses of golden sandy beaches. Vendee is ideal for family holidays, especially with younger children, as the beaches are shallow, the climate is warm and there are plenty of local family oriented attractions along the coast.
The Atlantic Ocean offers plenty of opportunities for those wanting to challenge their skills on holiday. Join up to a local surf or sail school to improve your skills on the water and return home both fitter and having achieved some personal goals. Although surf schools can be found all along the coast, the centre in Messanges has an especially good reputation.
