An oasis of greenery, calm and good taste

Although less well-known as a holiday destination than Brittany, the Vendée has just as many attractions! Its mild and sunny climate, its fine-sand beaches, its famous islands... Near the coast and the resort of Les Sables d'Olonne, the Château de la Marronière is an oasis of greenery, calm and good taste. The owners purchased the château a few years ago and have restored it and converted it to a B&B with passion. The guest rooms and suites upstairs are furnished with antiques and are particularly spacious, each has an office-cum-lounge area and a sumptuous bathroom. Their names "La Grande Prée", "La Rotonde", "Le Petit Bois" and "La Chambre de Jaillard" reflect their various styles, colours and personalities. All of them overlook the rear of the château, across the moat to the meadows in the distance. The round entrance hall, the dining room and the lounge on the ground floor are welcoming. The delicious breakfasts are served on the large dining-room table and include home made jams and cakes. Guests can enjoy relaxing strolls amid the ancient trees in the park, a dip in the outdoor swimming pool hidden in the vegetable and rose garden or a bicycle ride along some of the 800km of waymarked cycle paths in the Vendée.
