Vendee is a popular holiday destination because it has a micro climate that means it consistently reports the second highest number of sunshine hours after the South Coast region. As the Atlantic coast has expansive beaches which are less popular than the Mediterranean shores, the resorts are less crowded and more affordable than the South.
The Atlantic coast is breezy and this can prevent the temperatures from soaring too high. Along with gently sloping and clean beaches, this draws many families of young children to Vendee. The breeze also makes Vendee a popular destination for holiday makers who enjoy windsurfing, sailing and surfing.
Vendee has plenty of attractions, no matter what the weather. From the beautiful beaches, shady woodlands and wildlife havens, to the theme parks, water parks and historic chateaux, there is something for everyone. What’s more, the region is a manageable journey by car and ferry, so you have your own transport to get around to all the sights.
The region attracts many visitors from across Europe including plenty of French families who prefer to head to their own stunning beaches rather than travel abroad. In response, Vendee puts on a wide variety of additional events and attractions through the summer months to ensure that everyone has a wonderful break and leaves with happy memories. The local Tourist Information Centres will provide details of events during your stay.
Carisma offers comfortable mobile home accommodations on four Vendee campsites. These sites offer a variety of on-site facilities, including impressive swimming pool complexes, sports facilities and play areas for children. All sites have direct access to Vendee beaches and are close to popular coastal resorts.
Active families might enjoy all the activities on offer at our large Vendee campsite La Dune des Sables or our other family focused site Sol a Gogo. Those looking for a more tranquil holiday experience might prefer our site in Jard Sur Mer: and those with a passion for surfing might enjoy La Conches, as the local beach boasts ideal conditions for getting out on the waves.
You may decide to ditch the car and explore all that is on offer on the site and in the local area. Alternatively, you might use your comfortable mobile home as a base from which to explore a wider range of attractions in the region. No matter what you decide to explore, Vendee makes an ideal holiday destination.
