- Cyclists' paradise: on-site bike rental, access to Vélodyssée route
- Pool, waterslides, fishing lake, miniature golf, massages all on site
Spectacular château, peaceful countryside and loads to keep you busy… Ticking all the boxes? Make your way to Château la Forêt, a site in the grounds of a stunning 19th-century castle on the edge of Saint Julien des Lands in the Vendée region of Pays de la Loire.
With so much scenic countryside to cycle through, you’ll be glad of the on-site bike rental at Château la Forêt. There are more than 1,000 kilometres of cycling trails in the Vendée, including part of the Vélodyssée long-distance route, and the top-notch tracks on Île d’Yeu are also just a boat ride away…
All that sounds fab, but you’d be forgiven for never wanting to leave the site. You can take a dip in one of the pools, have a go on the waterslides, cast a line at the fishing lake, putt around on the miniature golf course, rack up the points in pétanque or take to the sports fields, then relax with a massage. Phew! Try saying all of that in one breath…
Once you’ve worked up an appetite, grab a quick bite or takeaway at the snack bar, or head to the restaurant for something more substantial, then wash it down with a drink at the bar.
Prefer to take care of meals yourself? You can fire up the barbecue and pile it high with goodies from the on-site grocery store or one of the nearby shops, or you can nab yourself a table at one of the restaurants within 10 minutes of Château la Forêt.

You don’t have to be an amateur Tour de France competitor to explore this part of the Vendée – you can make the 10-minute drive to Lac du Jaunay for tons of hiking trails (including a 12-kilometre jaunt starting in La Chapelle-Hermier), or venture as far as Les Sables d’Olonne where you can join a boat tour of the salt marshes.
While in Les Sables, taking to the water is a must. The seaside town is the starting point of the Vendée Global solo race, so it stands to reason that this is a prime spot for learning to sail. There’s more to the town than the ocean though: visit the Museum of Shells, explore the Sainte-Croix abbey or take the kids to the Sables zoo.
There’s loads more for the kids to get their teeth into – less than five minutes from the site, Grand Défi will keep them entertained for ages, with tree-top adventuring, paintball, laser tag and pony rides. If that’s not enough for them, they can play at giants in Vendée Miniature or spend a day at the Puy du Fou historical theme park, just under an hour away.
