Gardens and parks
The parks and gardens of the Vendee, whether public, private, or protected gardens, offer a profusion of plants and trees. One of the « remarkable gardens » in the region is that of William Christie, a charming French garden owned by a worldwide famous American musician. During the summer, musical and cultural events are presented in this garden. Similar events are also proposed by the culture Ministry during the «Rendez-vous aux Jardins» in early June each year. French history lovers will fall under the spell of Bazoges en Pareds' medieval garden: this delightful French garden is a reconstitution of a vegetable and herbal garden. A design that highlights health and the practical elements in a garden. Generally speaking, the parks and gardens to visit are idyllic places for a stroll, a venue to explore new botanical ideas, or just to take a breath of fresh air.
