Vent du Large offers a unique European stay on the coast of France. The Italian owner Daniela would like to see more cyclists use her seaside retreat. The self-contained house in the small coastal commune of Marennes sleeps up to 5 adults, as well as a child or baby. The house lies opposite the Ile d’Oléron, famous around the world for its fresh oysters. It's a great base for sporty holidays with cycling possible on La Vélodyssée (EuroVelo 1), Chemins de la Seudre, or even on the La Flow Vélo, which starts on the island of Aix. Or you can simply make the most of the relaxing village vibe for a beach holiday. You can hire bikes nearby, or get repairs done. There is safe bike storage at the house, which itself has 3-star classification. Daniela's recently renovated the house using environmentally friendly paints and treatments throughout. Daniela speaks Italian, Spanish, French and English.
