There is more than just one Vendée for you to enjoy.
SEA AND ISLANDS
In the “blue” Vendée, sea and sky come together. Relax in the sun and dream your days away on our unspoilt coastline, where enchanting islands (Yeu and Noirmoutier islands) and fine sandy beaches stretch far into the azure distance. Or step out and discover an unexpected variety of fascinating landscapes, from sand dunes and rocky headlands to forests and salt marshes.
The coastline has both an attractive natural landscape and 18 top-quality seaside resorts, each with its own authentic character. Amongst the most popular: Saint Jean de Monts, Saint Gilles Croix de Vie, Les Sables d’Olonne, La Tranche sur Mer...
THE VENDEE BRETON MARSHES
Between land and sea lie the marshalnds, a symbol of man’s constant struggle against nature, which provide an important wetland habitat for thousands of birds.
THE VENDEE BOCAGE
In the “green” Vendée, history, nature and culture hold centre stage. To the north, the wooded Bocage gives way to an undulating terrain of hills and valleys.
THE POITEVIN MARSHES
To the south, a visit to the Marais Poitevin reveals the secrets of “Green Venice” a vast network of navigable waterways hundreds of kilometres in length which criss-cross the land between ancient abbeys and forests.
With over 700 châteaux, country houses, castles, abbeys and medieval fortresses to visit, not to mention countless parks and gardens, you’ll never be short of interesting places to explore.
