Dolphin Gites)







Local visits 

by car, or by bicycle and activities in the local area 




There are 2 restaurants in walking distance from the gites. 


The local baker stops outside our gîtes every morning in the summer, selling baguettes and croissants. Alternatively, the nearest bakery is just outside the village on the road to Saint-Julien des Landes, about 1 mile from the gîtes. There is a Spar, post-office and café in walking distance from the gîtes (10 minutes). The nearest supermarket is Super U in Brétignolles which is  5 minutes' drive and the nearest hypermarket is E. Leclerc in St Gilles, 15 minutes' drive. There is a doctor in the village, and a chemist in Brétignolles.


Dolphin Gîtes is situated in a perfect central location to an amazing variety of places to visit both by car and by bicycle. Located only 3 miles from the coast with so many fabulous beaches and less that 10 miles from St Gilles, Apremont, Brétignolles-sur-mer, Givrand, L'Aiguillon/Vie, Coëx, Commequiers, Landevieille, Vairé and the beautiful lake Jaunay. 


There is so much to do and see by bicycle, or by car. We do have some bicycles which we rent out, however, if you can bring your own then we would recommend that you do.


The area is ideal for cycling because it is a relatively flat rural landscape with fantastic cycle paths and small roads and dirt tracks ideal for cycling. You can cycle to great beaches, quaint villages, cross country through beautiful countryside, cycle to the shops, the beach and to local cafés and restaurants.


There are also great places to visit by car. Dolphin Gîtes is only 12 miles from the fabulous resort of Les Sables d'Olonne and about 50 miles from La Rochelle.
