Covered swimming pools

At the gîtes de la belle étoile, holidays go hand in hand with aquatic pleasures. All our cottages have a private or shared swimming pool. The shared swimming pool, measuring 8 metres by 4 metres, is heated. The swimming pools of the cottages: La Grange, Le Pressoir and La Ville en Bois are covered and private, they measure 7 by 3 meters.
Similarly, each chalet has its own 5 x 2 metre indoor and private swimming pool, with counter-current swimming. Thanks to the sliding shelters, the water temperature is pleasant, even in the evening and on less sunny days.

Sallertaine - City and Crafts

In the past, the small village of Sallertaine in the Vendée was surrounded by salt marshes, which have now disappeared.
Sallertaine has no less than two churches, one of which dates back to the 13th century and hosts art exhibitions in season.
The village is classified as a "City and Crafts". In the summer, many craftsmen showcase their art. You can visit their shops and discover their trade secrets.
The association "L'Ile aux Artisans" organizes the Sallertaine Nocturnes which take place on Monday evening in July and August.
To visit: The Vaulieu garden, a geological and botanical park, is worth a visit, where you can discover the old limestone quarry and many varieties of plants.
The Tourist Office, open in summer, is located at the entrance to the Vaulieu garden.
The village is located 3 km from the gîtes de la Belle Etoile.
