The Pays de la Loire region

With an array of attractions to tempt the most jaded of palates, the Vendée makes an ideal family holiday destination. For many years quietly kept to themselves by the French, the charms of the Vendée are now being discovered by visitors from further afield.

From its 140km of beaches to the tranquillity of the rolling countryside of forests & the bocage Vendéen, from the wild beauty of the marais wetlands to the breathtaking spectacle of the shows at Le Grand Parc de Puy du Fou, the Vendée can amuse, relax, stimulate and enchant in equal measure.

Although the region has many attractions, the beaches of the Vendée are the primary source of its fame and the reason why the coast has long been a popular destination with the French. Mainly sandy and only gently sloping, the beaches are a particular hit with children of all ages. The beaches and sea are kept scrupulously clean and many stretches are patrolled by lifeguards during the summer.

The South of the Vendée benefits from the same microclimate as the Northern part of the Charente Maritime, giving the region a level of summer sunshine bettered in France only by the Côte d'Azur. The sandy beaches of this part of the Vendée are considered amongst the best in Europe.

A cooling contrast to the coast, the peaceful forests and countryside (the "bocage") of the Vendée provide ideal venues for picnics and leisurely rambles, more serious walks and cycling.

Le Grand Parc de Puy du Fou - Arguably the best family day out in France! This extraordinary theme park displays the history of France from the standpoint of events in the Vendée via the medium of spectacular re-enactment. Set in a huge landscaped park, the shows of the Puy du Fou combine the skills of actors, horsemen, falconers and stuntmen combine with stunning sets to portray history in a way that could not be less stuffy. Open in 2007 from 18th April until 23rd September.

The Puy du Fou also stages evening shows (the "Cinescene") on some dates during the summer. This outside spectacular is perfomed on a "stage" of several acres (the largest in the World), features over a thousand actors and some of the most ingeneous special effects seen anywhere on Earth.

Forêt de Mervent - one of a series of forested granite hills (or massif forestiers) that border the marais. Only 20 minutes drive away from your holiday gite, the forest of Mervent provides over 12000 acres of mixed woodland, with over thirty varieties of tree, including holm oaks (a Mediterranean species that does very well in the warm climate of the Vendée), penduculate oaks, ash, hornbeam, beech and chestnut.

Ideal for walking, riding, cycling and picnics, the forest is also home to a water sports complex (canoes, sailing, etc), a small zoo and an amusement park (Parc de Pierre Brune - see "Adventure & Fun Parks" below). On a hot day a picnic in the cool of the woods followed by a gentle stroll is a delight.

The forest is home to a wide variety of mammals and birds, including roe deer, badger, pine marten and wild boar. Rare short-toed eagles are often to be seen. In Autumn, the forest floor provides a bounty in the form of edible mushrooms to anyone wishing to collect them: local pharmacists will be happy to sort through and remove anything dangerous or unpalatable, a service they provide free of charge.

Marais Poitevin - Covering a large area in the South Vendée and extending into the neighbouring départements of Deux Sèrves and Charente Maritime, the marais is a vast area of wetlands. Reclaimed from the sea a thousand years ago by the great monasteries, and once a source of their immense wealth, this extraordinary landscape is home to a staggering variety of flora and fauna.

In many places, the tranquillity of the marais can be enjoyed by boat (for example from Coulon and Maillezais) on the network of limpid canals that criss-cross it. These are the origin of the name by it which is known locally - venise vert: Green Venice. More information about boat trips on the marais can be found on marais-poiteven.com (in French only).

Châteaux & Abbeys

The fascinating (and often somewhat lively) history of the Vendée has left the region with many important abbeys and châteaux. Two of the most important châteaux are the Château de la Guignardière and Château Tiffaugues, both of which are well suited to family days out.

Château Tiffaugues was built over a period ranging from the 12th to the 16th century. It was home to one Giles de Rias (1404 - 1440), also known as "Blue Beard" he was made Marshal of France under Charles VII for his exploits against the English during the Hundred Years War and was comrade-in-arms of Joan d'Arc. After the death of Joan, he returned to Tiffauges and developed an unhealthy obsession with alchemy. He came to believe that the key to transmuting base metals into gold lay in the blood of innocetnts and is reputed to have kidnapped & murdered some 200 local children....The château has an extensive collection of engines of war, many in complete working order and whose operation is demonstrated throughout the day.

La Rochelle & Ile de Ré

Located about 40 minutes away, La Rochelle, the capital of Charentes Maritime, is superb; an historic and beautiful city. From the port, busy with yachts and pleasure vessels, to the quays replete with excellent restaurants, and the handsome 17th century city centre with its extensive shopping facilities, there is plenty to occupy visitors. For children, the large, modern aquarium (certainly the largest in France and said to be the largest in Europe) is not to be missed. Just offshore, the Ille de Ré (reached by bridge from the mainland) has fantastic beaches, cycle ways and picnic spots. Visit the La Rochelle website for more infomation about the city.

Zoos and Wildlife Parks

There are a number of zoos and wildlife parks in the Vendée and neighbouring Charente Maritime, the best of which are the zoo at Les Sables d'Olonne on the Vendée coast and the Palmyre zoo near Royan in the Charente Maritime.

The zoo at Les Sables d'Olonne is located on the edge of this popular resort town. Set in verdant gardens, this beautifully presented zoo is home to 200 animals of more than 40 species, including big cats, red pandas and primates. Some of the species kept are rare and the zoo is part of a European breeding program for many of these. Visit their website at: www.zoo-des-sables.com (in French).

Futuroscope

Located near Poitiers in the neighbouring département of Vienne, Futuroscope has been established for many years as a futuristic theme park featuring extraordinary cinematic shows and architecture. The park was taken over by new management a few years ago and has been extensively remodelled and renovated. New shows and attractions are being added at high rate of knots. Visit their website for a the latest news for 2006 at: www.futuroscope.com.

Beaches of the Vendée

The Vendée is famous throughout France for the quality of its fine, sandy beaches. These run to 140km along the coast and receive upto 2500 hours of sunshine a year. The sea is warm, shallow and very clean, particularly good for children. Some have lifeguard cover during the summer months, and many of the beaches closest to our gites in the south of the département (L'Aiguillon / La Faute, La Tranche and Longeville) regularly receive European Blue Flag accreditation for general cleanliness and water quality.

Wind surfing and body boarding are very popular on the beaches of the Vendée during the summer season, whilst in spring and autumn, board surfers are well served. The best area for surfing is reckoned to lie between the beaches of La Tranche and Longeville). There are plenty of surf shops and surf schools in the area.

The beach at Les Conches (Longeville-sur-Mer) is our personal favourite being bordered by woods that are ideal for picnics and with plentiful parking.
