The Vendee is the second most popular department in France for holidays which is hardly surprising, given its remarkable sunshine record and its magnificent coastline. The Vendee coast attracts many visitors just for the miles of wide sandy beaches, backing onto dunes and pine forests, but also for the typical French fishing ports, the lively resort towns and the remarkably preserved natural sites and nature reserves. It's also well known in the sailing world for the Vendee Globe and prized by many surfing enthusiasts.
But that's not all. Further inland the Vendee countryside has a charm all its own, from the spectacular open spaces of the reclaimed lands in the south to the unique fens of the Marais Poitevin (Green Venice) and the delicately rolling hills and pastures of the north Vendee Bocage. History and tradition abounds, with a sumptuous rural heritage of chateaux, charming villages, stunning churches and historic towns. Visitors to the Vendee also appreciate the calm of the area – it’s so easy to find quiet spots even in high season.
