Relieve the stress, visit the Vendée. Just a great place, designed to relieve the stress of a busy life. Plenty of space, quiet roads and friendly people, and don’t forget the red wine.
The Vendee is of similar size to Devon, at 2,590 sq/miles but with less than half the population. The road network is extensive, it is well signed and maintained. Costal towns and villages can be busy during the summer months. However, most other areas are quiet and therefore a real pleasure to explore by car, cycle or on foot.
Most towns and larger villages have a Office de Tourism (Tourist Office) with helpful staff, many of whom speak English.
Puy Du Fou is simply the “Best Park” in the world. On your visit you will be transported through 2000 years of history, its a memorable experience that is unique to the Vendée
At just over an hours drive, the park is a sensational experience that you will want to repeat again, and again.
“Our personal record is 4 visits in one year”
The Vendée is rich in history, culture and diverse leisure activities, there is something for all tastes and all ages.
This website cannot possibly give anything more than a flavour of what is available in our area, visit the “Vendee Tourism” website for much, much more.
