Marc Dion, owner of a self-catering property (4 clés Clévacances) in La Jaudonnière
In 2005, Marc Dion began his tourism adventure by opening a self-catering property in La Jaudonnière near Chantonnay. This "4 clés Clévacances" property is located close to the Loing river and the Rochereau and Angle Guignard lakes, and has been awarded the "fishing accommodation" label. It has played host to many fishing enthusiasts for almost 10 years...
Vendée Tourisme: What does your accommodation have to offer?
Marc Dion: First and foremost, our accommodation is steeped in history. It is located in former stables, made from typical local stone. The building was practically a ruin when we discovered it. We fully renovated the property, while retaining its traditional character. It is now a spacious self-catering property for eight people, offering all mod cons and numerous leisure facilities (pool, sauna, gym), and located in peaceful surroundings on the banks of the river...
Vendée Tourisme: What do your guests, and especially fishing enthusiasts, look for?
Marc Dion: Most of our guests are families, with one or more fishing enthusiasts who go out fishing, normally early in the morning. They have access to our tackle room and nearby fishing spots, both on-site and in the local vicinity. Then, thanks to our prime location, families can get together for a day out at Le Puy du Fou®, the Marais Poitevin, local tourist attractions or an afternoon's swimming at the southern Vendée beaches.
Vendée Tourisme: Are your guests satisfied with the services you provide?
Marc Dion: Based on guest feedback and comments left in our visitors' book, our customers are highly satisfied with the accommodation, services and peaceful environment on offer. But the most reliable indicator is the fact that our visitors come here, explore our environment and the local tourist attractions... and return again!
