Swift Group, Europe’s no.1 brand for leisure vehicles, unveils Vendee, the premium new lodge and holiday home range, at the Caravan, Camping and Motorhome show.
Ideal for private ownership and holiday parks alike, Vendee is an elegant country retreat which blends rural character with modern design. Available in a choice of Lodge and Holiday Home specification, it presents sophisticated comfort with plenty of space for the whole family.
Nick Page, Swift Group Commercial Director, said: “Swift is proud to share Vendee, our latest leisure home and one which embodies the brand’s reputation for quality, style and function.
“We are enjoying seeing the public’s reaction at the Caravan, Camping and Motorhome show, where visitors can explore everything that makes the range so special.”
A fresh reimagining of the popular 2004 Vendee, one of Swift’s first ever holiday homes, the new release offers outstanding storage, luxurious features and stunning looks, keeping everyone cosy with a welcoming interior and central heating. An open-plan kitchen, dining and living area sits at its heart, complete with free-standing sofas, a contemporary electric 2kW Optiflame® stove fire and a TV unit. The classic country kitchen includes a Belling stainless steel oven and an integrated microwave, wine rack and A+ rated double door fridge/freezer, beside a designer dining table.
Up to six people are accommodated across two bedrooms. The master bedroom is fitted with a king size Alba Ortho* bed with lift up storage, as well as a large wardrobe, window seat and TV panel, while the nature-inspired second bedroom has twin single beds with panelled headboards. All beds have Duvalay™ mattresses, enhanced with Crib 5 rated fabric, and an optional 22” high queen size airbed with built-in electric pump to sleep extra guests.
Vendee’s family bathroom and master en suite present superb amenities, from thermostatic showers, soft close toilet seats and extractor fans, to heated towel rails, a vanity unit and ample storage.
A galvanised chassis, bonded 'sandwich' exterior wall construction and coated steel pantile roof provide extra strength, alongside excellent thermal performance and sound insulation from the Thermaglas uPVC double glazed windows and doors, lagged underfloor pipes and generous insulation.
The Vendee Holiday Home sits at a lower price point, while the Vendee Lodge offers residential specification for year-round getaways in the utmost comfort, with additional features including double French door to the front aspect, extra insulation and more.
