Auberge BonBeauJoli is the result of a major renovation of a former farm, in the marais of Saint-Jean-de-Monts. We are proud of the result and are ready to welcome you in our comfortable rooms or gite. This is possible at any time throughout the year, as it is a place where we, and hopefully our guests, can be amazed all year round.
We like to share with our guests our place, the beautiful surroundings, the wonderful climate, the sea and the beach, the marais, the culture and the artistic talent in the Vendée. We think it is important that our guests can enjoy what we and the area have to offer in peace and freedom and do everything we can to make that possible with passion and pleasure. Our auberge is located on a departmental cycle route that can lead you everywhere.
We wish you a warm welcome! Besides Dutch, we also speak French, English, German and Spanish so: bienvenue welcome willkommen bienvenido!
BonBeauJoli Auberge is located in Saint-Jean-de-Monts
Saint-Jean-de-Monts is one of the most popular seaside resorts on the 150 km long Atlantic coast of the Vendée. Split into two parts, the old, cozy and picturesque part lies inland, with an old Gothic church, market hall and various shops and bars in the center of the village. Separated by a strip of pine forest, right on the 8-kilometer long and child-friendly beach is the newer part with a beautiful boulevard, restaurants of all shapes and sizes and the life you expect at a popular seaside resort.
Saint-Jean-de-Monts is located on the Côte de Lumiere, the coast of light, with about 2,400 hours of sunshine per year, a proper name. This coast is very varied. Fine sand beaches, rocky beaches, narrow and wide beaches, high waves or a rippling tide line. Every day is a suitable day at the beach, for a brisk walk or an endless sunbath. The wonderful climate is due to a warm Gulf Stream of the ocean. At the end of February spring starts to emerge and after a warm summer we still measure 15 degrees in December.
The environment of Saint-Jean-de-Monts is of great ecological value. The swamp, the forests, the direct influence of the sea, the dune landscape, the countless ditches and rivers have formed a unique landscape where the diversity in flora and fauna is enormous. 1,000 km of marked cycling and walking routes turn every trip into a feast of discovery.
