Tourist Attractions in the Vendée
And of course, we are only a 30 minute drive from the World Famous Puy du Fou Theme Park - where you can be transported back in time to the Gladiators, Vikings, Musketeers, Medieval Knights and, if you stay late, there is the fantastic Cinéscénie music and light show with over 1200 participants! Not to be missed. For videos and photos of The Puy du Fou, see our Short Breaks Page
The map below highlights lots of the main attractions and we have added a pointer so that you can see where they are in relation to our holiday homes.

The Beaches of the Southern Vendée
Here in The Vendée there are miles of sandy beaches, with great spots for surfing, body boarding and rock pooling, along with wide stretches of sand to relax or play games. Some of the coast has a ‘Jurassic Coast’ feel about it, as there are limestone pavements stretching out into the sea and you can often find fossils on the beach.
The seaside towns of La Tranche and La Faute have entertainment laid on throughout the summer months, and further up the coast at Port Bourgenay, you will find weekly craft markets around the harbour and medieval festivals in Talmont St Hilaire. The bustling sea port of Les Sables d’Olonne makes a great day out - with miles of sandy beaches, a long promenade for walks, weekly markets, harbour side restaurants selling the ‘catch of the day’ and lots of fetes and festivals.
