Camping in Vendée
Because of its importance as a holiday destination for British visitors to France we have decided in this guide to list the Vendée department as a region in its own right. Administratively the department lies in the region of Pays de la Loire. With a sunshine record to rival the south of France, the Vendée is among the most popular areas in France. Visitors flock to the region to enjoy the exceptionally mild climate and 160 km. stretch of gently shelving, mostly sandy beaches. Popular resorts in the Vendée include Les Sables d’Ollone, La Tranche-sur-Mer, and St Jean-de-Monts. Explore the coasts for traditional fishing villages or head inland for fields of sunflowers and unspoilt rural villages. The Vendée was the centre of the counter-revolutionary movement between 1793 and 1799 and a ‘son et lumière’ held at Le Puy-du-Fou tells the whole story. Les Sables d’Olonne is its main resort renowned for its excellent sandy beach. The area between the Vendée and Charente, the Marais Poitevin, is one of the most unusual in France – a vast tract of marshland with a thousand or more tree-lined canals and slow moving streams.
