Saint Hilaire la Forêt, Vendée

Bring the family to this happy country house for a relaxing holiday 3 km from beaches, near Les Sables d'Olonne, Ile de Ré, La Rochelle


3 places


Sleeping from 4 – 8


Step into Denys’ childhood holiday house to generous spaces, 200-year-old tiles, wax polish wafting from country antiques, and know that you are in a much-loved home. There is a happy feel to the house and spreading garden and your kind, intelligent hosts are always ready to help. You have two comfortable timber-clad sitting rooms hung with original paintings and framed prints; the convivial kitchen is filled with garden light or the glow from a chunky metal chandelier, and has all mod cons. Bedrooms are welcoming, their simplicity leavened by hefty beams and splashes of colour, antique bedheads and armoires giving an unflowery country look – nothing modern or fake here – and the three bathrooms have been nicely renovated. The smaller, prettily decorated apartments, with beds in their living rooms, are best used by members of the same group who can enjoy the communal rooms in the main house. Outside, the grounds ramble charmingly; you can truly relax here. St Hilaire is an easy walk for shopping and its museum of prehistoric life; the beautiful sandy beaches are just 3km and the islands are always worth a trip.

The neighbourhood

Local points of interest from Denys de Guerry

  • Water babes can be in the sea in minutes : swim at charming Saint Vincent/Jard, surf at famous "Bud" beach, sailboard, sand-yacht, kite-surf or sail away to the Ile de Ré ... and why not pamper yourself at the Thalassotherapy spa at Les Sables d'Olonne !
  • Landlubbers may prefer a game of tennis at Jard or Longeville, a round of golf at Port Bourgenay, or, on a cool, clear morning, why not take a rural ride around Talmont or Saint Foy... and perhaps a sightseeing flight from a local aerodrome ?
  • If Nature is your focus, go wildlife spotting in a flat- bottomed boat at nearby Longeville marshes (5kms) or other protected areas.. Bike the excellent network of cycle tracks through local countryside and coast and commune with the wilder side.
  • In need of sustenance ? Explore local village street markets, shop at Jard and Talmont. At sundown try oysters and wine at Port de La Guittière, or dine simply locally. For more sophistication, try Les Sables d'Olonne (20 mins) or La Rochelle (1 hr) !
  • Discover our "remarkable" gardens - Chaligny, L'Auneau, and Le Bâtiment : home to William Christie's enchanting Musical Garden Festival in late August with Les Arts Florissants - is a cultural" must do" along with numerous concerts and exhibitions!
  • Bike to Avrillé via prehistoric dolmens to visit the Renaissance Chateau la Guiniardière. or to Clemenceau's beach-house at Saint Vincent/Jard - now a tiny National museum. More history at state of the art L'Historial, La Chabotterie and Le Puy du Fou Park
