Saint-Jean-de-Monts is a commune in the Vendée department in the Pays de la Loire region in western France. This charming seaside town is situated in the west of the department, between Notre-Dame-de-Monts and Saint-Hilaire-de-Riez. It is split in two by a long plantation of pine trees, stretching from north to south along the coast. The town centre lies to the east of the cordon, while the seafront forms a lively centre to the west - a must visit when staying in a self-catering Saint-Jean-de-Monts holiday rental villa or gite.

Locals are proud of the recent restoration of its seafront which now offers visitors a network of footpaths and cycle tracks, which are prettily enhanced by an array of plants, flowers and shrubs.

Since 1867, bathers have been coming to the beach at Saint-Jean-de-Monts in large numbers, and since 1892 it has been the inspiration for many artists.
