At the French Atlantic Ocean on the Côte de Lumière ("Coast of Light") in the departement "Vendée" in between Nantes and Bordeaux, lies the Jolly Chateau.
For years the Jolly Château had only been used as a private holiday home for a few months a year - since the end of 2016 it is now a place where people from all over the world come together. We offer yoga retreats, organize surf lessons or rent rooms including delicious vegetarian breakfast for a relaxing holiday far away from mass tourism.

The Jolly Château was built in 1807 by its constructor Pierre Louis Jolly. Actually, its real name is "Jolly-sur-Rabretière", but over the years it had gotten it's his nickname "Jolly Château," which we've adopted.
In 1962 Damien's grandfather bought the once stately house as a ruin and rebuilt it with his own hands to what it once had been.
For a long time, the Château was only used as the family's holiday home before we saved it from being sold, turned our backs on Germany and took over the family heritage with much love and devotion.
The Jolly Château is not a brand new hotel or seminar house that is based on Feng Shui principles and has underfloor heating and a rain shower. It has just been standing there strong for over 200 years and is so perfectly imperfect that you have to fall in love immediately.

The thick stone walls tell stories. There is a play box in which Damien has already rummaged as a little boy and a piano on which his grandmother, who was a pianist at the royal court of Denmark, played. We have an ancient fountain in the garden, in the kitchen we have a huge old fireplace with a over 200 years old old bread oven. During the Second World War, the house was a refuge to people who - still visible - carved their names into the old walls outside.
As it is mainly a private house and we as hosts are always there to help you, we create a very familiar atmosphere. Over and over again the house has been carefully renovated and never lost its old charm.
The house has a soul and - what is perhaps the most important - it is a house in which there was always a lot of love. And you feel that the second you walk into it.

The Jolly Château is situated in the middle of fields and nature in the Département Vendée between Bordeaux and Nantes, only 15 minutes by car from the Atlantic Ocean. This is where the French coast begins to become less rough and wide sandy beaches behind pine forests line the coastline. The climate is very pleasant: winters are mild, summers are warm but not too hot. The coastline on our "house beaches" is almost completely undeveloped, as the dunes behind the beach are declared a protected zone.
On our beaches you can enjoy various water sports - for example, there are wonderful waves for all levels, from beginners to professionals, for surfing.
We work together with different surf schools and are happy to organise taster courses and lessons for you. You can find more information here.
For those who like to ride on horseback, we can organise riding excursions with our friends from the Ferme des Longs Crins all year round.

Hello there! We are Alexandra and Damien with our two lovely rescue dogs Frida and Jeffrey and our two cuddly cats Smilla and Io. We used to live in Hamburg and by the cold baltic sea in Germany, now we are hosting the lovely "Jolly Château", Damien's family heritage, in the beautiful Vendée in France, just 9kms away from the Atlantic Ocean. We offer yoga retreats, massages, bed & breakfast, cooperations with local surf schools, relaxation, fun, good food and good spirit :-) Alexandra studied art and design as well as sports and English before she decided to switch to a more zen" life. Since 2004, she is an Ayurvedic therapist, massage therapist and a yoga teacher and worked as a massage therapist in various big spas in Hamburg, Germany. 2011 she opened up a salon of her own together with her sister, the "schön & wohl" in Hamburg. In the Jolly Château, she is the cook and gives professional wellness massages for the guests. Damien was born in Geneva, studied media and journalism and worked as a filmmaker and a cutter in Hannover and Kiel. He is the calm anchor in the house, calming Alexandra down when she is flooding him with new ideas. We speak German, English and French fluently.
