Head to the Vendee and enjoy a great family holiday  30/12/2013

For a relaxing and stress-free holiday experience, you’d be well advised to take a trip to see the beautiful surrounds of the Vendee, in western France.

The region has been a popular holiday destination for locals since the 1800s, but it has only become well-known among those from further afield in the last few decades.

The Atlantic coastline is comprised of virtually all beaches and this really is a great place to enjoy a break, regardless of whether you wish to leave the stresses of everyday life behind or indulge in your favourite sporting activities.

That is, in fact, one of the Vendee’s main charms: that it is suitable for holidays of all kinds. So whether you’re travelling on your own or as part of a large group, you won’t be disappointed.


If the idea of sitting on a beach and simply soaking in sunrays makes you feel a bit uncomfortable, then you’ll find that there are loads of exciting activities to keep you entertained on your camping holiday in France.

There are lots of water sports on offer, if you fancy heading into the ocean, or you could simply enjoy a pleasant bike ride through the beautiful countryside.

Vendee beaches

The region is, perhaps, most famous for being home to an impressive collection of beaches, some of which rank among the most scenic in the country.

Here, you can either simply relax on the beach or, if you’ve got little ones with you, break out the bucket and spade and have lots of family fun.

There are, in fact, more than 140 kilometres of beaches in the Vendee, so you’d be foolish not to take advantage of this.

Towns and villages

There are more than 100 towns and villages in the Vendee, which are home to historic attractions, brilliant restaurants and much else besides.

It’s worth taking the time to learn a little more about some of these before heading to see some of the top attractions.
