The Poitou-Charentes/Vendee region
The Vendee is famous for its miles of lovely sandy beaches. There is such a wide variety to choose from - La Terriere & Les Conches for surfing & bodyboarding, La Tranche for family entertainment and La Faute sur Mer for sandcastles & picnics, and not forgetting the rockpools at St Vincent & Jard sur Mer!
The region comes to life in the summer months, with many local markets and festivals in the surrounding towns & villages, along with a great programme of entertainment in the seaside resorts. The weather is usually hot in July & August, but is just as warm in June & September if you would prefer to avoid the crowds!
In Autumn, winter and early spring the area is great for walking and cycling holidays - there are lots of places to spot the local wildlife and migratory birds.
Lairoux is close to the town of Luçon, with its historic cathedral and bustling weekly market. In the summer, there are many organised events here - such as open air concerts, musical evenings in the town centre and huge street markets and travelling fairgrounds.
Lairoux has its own bar within walking distance and food is served during the daytime.
The seaside towns of La Faute & La Tranche have entertainment most evenings - with concerts, fairs, the circus and beach sports events.
Every weekend in spring & summer there is a wide selection of village markets, selling local produce - foods, wines, gifts and artwork. There are also lots of flea markets and car boot sales to rummage through.
