The most prominent attraction of the Vendée is its 100 miles of clean, sandy beaches, a number of which are Blue Flag standard. Here, the clear Atlantic waters provide a wealth of opportunities for water sports of every kind, as well as the perfect excuse to just relax in the sun against a backdrop of the dunes and fragrant pines which edge the stunning coastline.
But there is much more to camping in Vendée than just beaches, there is also a wealth of attractions to be enjoyed throughout the region. Amongst the eclectic mixture of scenic Bocage, mysterious marshes and meandering rivers found inland, a wealth of imposing castles, ancient churches, rustic villages and prehistoric standing stones lay just waiting to be discovered.
But it is in the delightful towns and villages of the Vendée that you will experience a real taste of the region and exploring them will provide you with a treasure trove of truly unforgettable memories:
Visit the island of Noirmoutier for instance; it is linked to the mainland by a long and regularly submerged causeway and crossing at the onset of high tide always excites a sense of high adventure.
If you enjoy seafood, then a visit to Port du Bec is essential; nicknamed the ‘Chinese Harbour’ because of its unique labyrinth of wooden walkways, its speciality is freshly caught "Vendée Atlantique" oysters.
For a touch of gastronomy head for Mareuil-sur-Lay; here an imposing Romanesque Church and an ancient Chateau overlook this attractive wine producing town with its many charming shops and market. Be sure to sample the area’s sumptuous delicacies in a local family restaurant…along with the excellent locally produced wines.
Historically, the Vendée has always had long association with England; Richard the Lionheart’s Mother hailed from this region and he often based himself here as well…and when you look at what the Vendée has to offer, you can understand precisely why. Perhaps because of this, you will quickly notice that wherever you go and whatever you do whilst camping in Vendée; you will always be received with a genuine and warm welcome from the gracious and friendly locals.
