There is a separate TV lounge with a PS2 games console and games, UK TV channels and in the garage there is a table tennis table and a bike that can be used to cycle to the nearest bakery for fresh croissants each morning! All of the bedrooms have an en suite shower room and one of the double bedrooms is on the ground floor, so may be suitable for guests with limited mobility. The heated pool is securely fenced off from the patio area for the security of your children and there is a decked area with sunloungers. La Tranche is a fantastic location for water sports and outdoor activities, and has lots of entertainment for all the family throughout the summer - mostly within walking distance! There are many cycle paths and running tracks nearby, as well as picnic areas in thesurrounding pine forests. Further afield there are lots of other interesting places to visit - such as La Rochelle and the Il de Re (you can take a boat ride from La Tranche to visit these). There is also the Puy du Fou Theme Park - with its Gladiators, Vikings, Musketeers and Knights - a great day out. The coast is dotted with miles of long sandy beaches and small seaside towns, with lots of restaurants serving freshly caught seafood and other local specialities.More

About the neighbourhood
In summer, La Tranche comes alive! There is a twice weekly market selling lots of good local produce and often there are summer fayres and antique markets as well. The town has many restaurants, catering for all tastes and seafood is a great speciality - with oysters and mussels freshly landed each morning. In the evenings, the town has lots of entertainment for all ages, ranging from music & dancing in the bars, to full-blown 'Summer Shows', as well as discos and lots of organised entertainment on the beaches. The beach at Le Phare is only a short walk from the Villa and this is a great place for water sports - with surf schools, sailing, body boarding and kite surfing all close by. The villa is also near to the pine forests, with its many picnic areas and pathways. Sea fishing boats l...
Getting around
A car is essential for your journey to this villa. Once you arrive, you may not need to use your car often, as there are several restaurants and shops within walking distance, plus the main town centre is only a 20 minute walk away. There is even a free bus that can take you to some of the other local beaches in the summer.
