For the Vendee in summer with a pool you should be looking at more like 1k per week.

I am sorry but you would be lucky to get a Eurocamp tent for under a grand for a fortnight.

i just booked eurocamp tent for a fortnight those dates for £1600. Going in a tent as thats what the children want to do and a ferry to st malo instead of dover as don;t want the long drive.
so if you find a gite for that price i'd love to know. sorry to be such a misery.

I came to much the same conclusion!
There were a few for £500 per week but no pool.

We are going to take the caravan instead, and have booked a bargain. Under £600 for 10 nights in the Vendee, at a Castels site, incl ferry.

hope none of you are driving down on a sat morning in the school hols as traffic is awful. all the french going on their hols - very inconsiderate! took over 1 hour longer going down than coming back up.
