Summer France Les Maisons de Fontenelles make up part of the Résidence Les Fontenelles, which can be found on the outskirts of an excellent 18-hole golf course in Saint Gilles Croix de Vie in France. The Atlantic Ocean and its pretty beaches are 8km away from the property, and the historic town of Coëx lies just 5km away.

Located in the centre of France, along the Atlantic, the Vendée region of France is known for its fantastic countryside and lush open spaces. The city of Nantes can be reached in just over an hour by car and provides some excellent shopping as well as sightseeing opportunities.

The Maisons de Fontenelles will open on Saturday 27/6 and we are looking forward to welcoming our guests to the Vendée this summer.


The Accommodation

Les Maisons de Fontenelles is the perfect place for golf lovers to simply relax and unwind. Located on the fringes of the course, you won't need to travel far to practice your putting. Each of the cottages offers bright and well decorated interiors, with clean, comfortable and high-quality furnishings.

The cottages sleep from four to six people, offering plenty of space and individually decorated rooms, with almost no two cottages looking the same. There is a fully equipped kitchen with hot plates, a fridge-freezer, oven with an extractor hood and a dishwasher. Each has its own terrace overlooking a pretty private garden. The complex also has a pétanque strip to keep active guests entertained. Free WIFI only at reception.



With its elegant architecture, the residence oozes quality and comfort. The residence offers preferential prices for the golf course. To complete your sporting holiday there are numerous cycle paths located close to the residence. The complex puts at the guests' disposal a pétanque strip.

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.

All of the cottages at Les Maisons de Fontenelles are self-catered, with a fully equipped kitchen ideal for those who want to prepare their own meals. There is an outdoor terrace in each of the cottages, where guests can enjoy al fresco dining as well as two restaurants in the Residence Les Fontenelles, where you'll find a choice of French cuisine as well as international dishes.
