Gallery of Local Tourist Attractions
There is so much to do in the Vendée - you'll need at least a week, or possibly two to see all of the main attractions!
Here is a gallery of some of our favourite activities
A 'Must See' for a visit to the Vendée and the second most visited tourist attraction after the Eiffel Tower.
There's a great water play area for the kids, 3D Cinema experiences and you can even dance with Robots! Plan to spend a whole day there!
There are shopping streets filled with pretty boutiques, an Aquarium, boat trips to the nearby islands or just a perfect place to sample some of the locally caught seafood!
Relax on one of the many pale sandy beaches before heading back to the 'Mainland'
Take a stroll along the long seafront promenade - don't forget to stop off at the pretty Ile de Penotte with its colourful shell mosaics!
Learn to surf or bodyboard, build sandcastle or stay late into the evening taking in some of the entertainment laid on over the summer months.
The Vendée is home to lots of migratory birds (cranes, heron, ibis) and small mammals (deer, boar, coypu)
Dogs are allowed on the beaches in winter.
There is also the Natur'Zoo with its Red Pandas, baby giraffe and meerkats - perfect for younger children!
You can hire a boat at Coulon and punt along the canals, followed by lunch in a riverside restaurant, and then explore the ruined abbey at Maillezais or Neuil sur l'Autize.
Book in advance as they are very popular!
