Holidaying on the Atlantic Coast, you will be gone with the wind
The ocean, sometimes becalmed, sometimes choppy, sets the daily pace of France’s Atlantic seaboard. From the Basque Country to Brittany, you will be walking on granite soil and sand dunes that stretch to infinity when you rent a holiday home on the Atlantic Coast.
“Hold the helm and keep to the wind, heave ho, we’re bound for Santiago!” So goes an old French sea shanty. From the Vacances Bleues holiday homes, you can hear the churning of the sea and the whistling of the wind. The Seignosse Océan home, for example, is only 300 m from the beach at Seignosse, near Hossegor. The holiday stay at Bénodet faces the Glénan Islands. As for Les Jardins de l’Atlantique club, it stands proudly between a pine grove and the open sea, near the Sables d’Olonne, in the Vendée. Holidays beside the Atlantic promise adventure in regions full of character and stimulating excursions.
Do you prefer a spicier atmosphere? Opt for a holiday rental along the Basque Coast, at Hendaye, close to the Spanish frontier. The Résidence Orhoïtza is a traditional villa, whose façade is painted a passionate red, with its own private swimming pool. It’s the perfect starting point for visiting Biarritz, Saint-Jean-de-Luz, San Sebastian and the other delightful towns of France’s Basque Country.
