Tourism, holidays & travel in the Vendée

Benefiting from an exceptional number of sunshine hours, the Vendée offers a great combination of relaxation, leisure activities and places of interest. Its seaside resorts and its long sandy beaches stretching along the Atlantic coast are all renowned places for relaxation and water sports. Beside these attractions, several islands with an unspoiled heritage, many architecture gems, the Poitou marshes offering boat tours, and the famous Puy du Fou amusement park make the Vendée a popular destination.
