Perhaps the best-known holiday destination on the Atlantic coast, the Vendee is a charming region of France that is home to some of the most spectacular beaches that you're likely to set your eyes on.
Indeed, the coastline boasts gorgeous sandy beaches that are the perfect destination for relaxing under the summer sunshine or enjoying a spot of surfing.
In other areas of the region, however, you will find something quite different, which makes this just about the perfect all-round holiday destination, regardless of whether you are travelling as part of a large family or on your own.
Here, we're going to provide a guide to some of the top activities to enjoy in the Vendee.
Well, firstly, it's worth making the point that while there is much more to the region that simply enjoying life on the beaches, they are the primary reason why holidaymakers flock here during the summer months.
That being the case, you'd be silly to pass up the opportunity of enjoying the beauty of the beaches and the great surf that's on offer.
If you're travelling as part of a large family, say, then you can easily find a beach where mum and dad can soak in the sunrays, while the kids have fun in the sea.
For instance, if your son or daughter is a big fan of surfing or is simply keen to learn, this is the ideal holiday destination for them - and you.
Travel further along the coast and you will come across some stunning views, which are perfect if you happen to have a camera with you.
There are some really rugged areas along the coast and from here you can enjoy the fresh sea air and revel in the beauty of what’s in front of you.
There really are few holiday destinations that can match the Vendee in terms of beauty.
