Located near Saint Gilles Croix de Vie (10min by car), in the centre of the western coast of France and on the outskirts of an 18-hole golf course, Les Appartements de Fontenelles offers guests easy access to the beach, which is just a 15-minute drive away. Offering a choice of apartments, Madame Vacances' selection of pretty whitewashed accommodation is ideal for those wanting to enjoy golf, theme parks, the beaches of the Atlantic and more.

Saint Gilles Croix de Vie is a seaside resort on the Vendée coast, between Saint Jean de Monts and Les Sables d'Olonnes.

Renovation work on the swimming pool, initially planned for the spring, could not be completed on time because of confinement measures. In view of the current health situation, the co-ownership trustee of the residence has therefore decided not to open the swimming pool this summer.

Les Appartements de Fontenelles all come with a fully equipped kitchenette, allowing guests to enjoy a self-catered holiday. There are two restaurants onsite, serving traditional French cuisine and brasserie style dishes, as well as a restaurant in nearby Coex, serving crepes and other French dishes.
