Not having ever stayed for a holiday anywhere in France except the far South ie Cap d'Agde,Canet and Cannes etc ( I love the sun and the heat )I am looking for a few pointers for somewhere NOT AS FAR to travel by car.
Someone suggested Les Sable d'Olonne so can anyone give me me a bit of info please.
1) How hot does it get in the 1st half of July?
2) for the sake of my other half,what is the shopping like. Are there plenty of shops. I appreciate that it would'nt match Montpelier but is there a good shopping centre.
3)What or where are the best places to go in and indeed outside of Les Sables......
Finally ( at the moment)can I have a re-cap on miles and quickest time to travel by car from Calais.
I appreciate in advance any help anyone can give on these points. Thanks
