About JD Holiday Lettings Ltd

Why not come and spend a few months by the beach on the West coast of France working on average 20-25 hrs per week whilst enjoying what this wonderful and exciting holiday resort has to offer.....!

What are we looking for…..

Of course previous experience and great references are important but recruiting the right staff, with the right attitude is the key to our huge success.  We are looking for outgoing, confident, friendly and reliable applicants as they are the face of our company.  Therefore, the main attributes we look for in an individual or couple are presentation, approachability and someone who always has smile on their face, even if things are quite going to plan!!  Sounds like you….?

The very best of the Vendee…..

The Vendee region is blessed with a micro climate ensuring a high probability of hot sunny days. With nearly 100 miles of excellent sandy beaches backed by pine forests, plus easy access from the southern channel ports, it is a popular destination for sun, sea and those who wish to explore this part of France. The weather in the Vendee enjoys around 2500 hours of sunshine per year, rivaling even the Cote d'Azur. This compares to only 1300 hours for Manchester and 1490 hours for London!

So much to see and do……


We have so many excellent attractions close by. 

One of the most popular with clients (and staff) is the excellent Indian Forest Adventure Park (think Go Ape on steroids..!) which is just 5 mins away from our homes, so great to explore on your day off.  This really is ideal for those thrill seekers among you!  From various different acrobatic water jumps with bikes, skis, inflatables etc. to the various zip wire challengers (50ft up in the trees), to the thrilling assault courses, energetic paint ball games, delightful horse riding to the exhilarating go kart course, you are bound to find this one of the best activity parks in France – and it’s right on your door step!! So is the fabulous new water park opening in June and the exciting wake park which opened last year.

Other great activities, within 5-10 minutes from us, is a fun outdoor fast go-kart track, superb sandy beaches for surfing, windsurfing and sailing or simply great for a relaxed sunbathe with a good book. We also have the ‘Maris’ where you can explore the beautiful waterways of the marshes by Kayak or canoe.  We have 5 tennis courts in the village, 110 km of cycle paths to meander through in the forest and along the coast line plus great water parks and theme parks to name but a few!  As this is a highly populated tourist destination, traditional French bistro's, cafes and restaurants are in abundance (minus the obligatory ski prices of course!) so you don't have to look far to be able to enjoy the wonderful cuisine and sublime local wines or this region!

Although there are plenty of small villages locally, the larger cities of La Roche sur Yon and Sables d'Olonne, (home to the Vendee Globe sailing event) are just 30 minutes' drive away for great days out shopping. 

Full training……

Your first 2-4 weeks will be working very closely with the owners and will be dedicated to your one to one and group training as well as setting up the villas ready for client arrivals.

As you will be required to offer lots of information on the houses as well as the area, you will be required to explore and get to know the area/region including information on the local geography, history and culture.  

Living Accommodation....

Private 2 birth (double bed) caravan with separate sitting/dinning area. Outside patio and garden area. 

So, why not come and enjoy what this wonderful part of France has to offer whilst working for a young dynamic company. We look forward to welcoming you.
