We have details of X campsite in Vendée
It’s not only the fine beaches that make this holiday region so appealing – quaint fishing harbours, historic ports and charming towns all create a great holiday atmosphere.
Although lying administratively within the Pays de la Loire region, the Vendée department is a hugely popular destination for British holidaymakers. With a sunshine record to rival the south of France, it is among the most popular areas in the country. 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’Olonne, 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.
