The Poitou-Charentes/Vendee region
The Vendée is a department in West Central France, adjoining the Atlantic Ocean. The name Vendée comes from the Vendée river which runs through the south-eastern part of the department. The department is in fact crossed by four rivers: the Sèvre Nantaise (135 km), the Vendée (70 km), the Lay (110 km) and the Sèvre Niortaise (150 km). To many people however the name Vendée conjures up images of wonderful historic medieval castles and beautiful white sandy beaches with waves rolling in from the Atlantic Ocean.
La Roche Sur Yon
In 1804 Napoleon made La Roche-sur-Yon a prefecture and developed the town in a neoclassical, imperial style. Prior to this, Fontenay-le-Comte had been the prefecture or capital of the Vendée but Napoleon decided that La Roche-sur-Yon would take its place in that capacity. The Emperor called this new town Napoleon and over the next 60 years through republic and monarchy, the town's name was changed seven times finally reverting back to the name of the original village in 1870.
Les Sables d'Olonne
The beach at Les Sables d'Olonne is ideal for families as it shelves very gently and is well cared for by the local community. On warm summer evenings, the beachfront promenade 'Le Remblai' fills with street performers. The town is also host to the internationally renowned “Vendée Globe” which is without doubt the world's most prestigious single handed round the world yacht race held every 4 years. A month before the race takes place, the Vendée globe village is open to the public.
The main economic centre of the Vendée and the second largest town, Challans is known as the 'duck capital' and is in many ways to the French what Aylesbury is to the English. Many restaurants include duck-based dishes on their menus and the ducks raised here are in demand throughout France by the greatest chefs. Specialities include: duck cooked in Muscadet and Flan Maraichin – a sort of egg custard in a pastry case.
Recently the town has diversified somewhat by increasing free range black chicken stock as well (poulet noir). In the Middle Ages, Challans was famous for its fairs and that tradition is still alive today with the Faire des Mines, a 5 day exhibition which takes place in early September. During the Wars of Religion, the town was very damaged King Louis XIII stayed in the town as he prepared for his decisive battle for the Ile-de-Riez in the year 1622. During the Wars of the Vendée, the town remained Republican as it fought off the Vendéen army's attacks.
During July and August, there is a fair in which the people try to turn the clock back to 1910 with many hundreds of locals dressing up in period costume and this is known as “Autrefois Challans”

Here is a list of some of the main beaches in the Vendée going from North to South:
Beaches of Île de Noirmoutier
The island of Noirmoutier has many glorious beaches and the Plages des Dames still has wooden bathing huts from the early 20th century where the ladies used to change their clothes safely away from prying eyes.
St-Jean-de-Monts & Notre-Dame-de-Monts
Both in what is known as the Pays de Monts which is a stretch of coastline consisting of more than 12 1/2 miles of fine sandy beaches with pine forest behind. Beaches generally very safe and feature many activities.
Île de Yeu
A fine choice of coves on the south coast. There is a beach at the Anse des Soux which is sheltered and has a huge cave accessible at low tide. More family-oriented beaches with clear shallow water at the Grande Conche, the Ovaires and Ker Châlon close to the camping ground.
Les Sables d'Olonne
(right) The largest seaside resort in the Vendée. Its main beach: Le Grande Plage is one of the safest beaches on the Vendée coast. A long crescent shaped beach of gently shelving sand protected on both sides means less dangerous undercurrents than an open beach. There are surveillance posts on the beach also.

One of the favourite surfing spots in western France: La Sauzaie is found here with waves reaching as high as 15 or 16 feet but as there are underwater rocks steer clear unless you're an expert surfer. Also here are the beaches of Sauveterre and Aubraie. The latter is safer at mid tide but look out for the mussel rocks!
Because of its extremely mild microclimate, the south coast of the Vendée is often called 'Little California' and visitors love the huge sandy beaches backed by wooded dunes and forests. La Tranche-sur-Mer which is made up of 7 beaches is an extremely popular resort. The beaches are safe and restaurants and cafes which are all close by. The Plage de la Terrière is well-known for its surfing as well as its naturist beach.
