Visit the Vendée

For families, the Vendée offers various possibilities for visits, free or payable: we have listed the key cultural sites not to be missed; without forgetting the amazing Puy du Fou. Castles, churches and the many charming little villages full of character: the « bocage vendéen” is home to a wealth of delightful sites at less than 30 minutes from the gîtes. Not really sure that one week’s holiday will be enough to do and see everything……

We have also thought about selecting our “Top” addresses for restaurants, wine cellars and local producers. Not quite sure that a week’s holiday will be long enough to do everything … so you may need to come back to see us again ^^
