Location & tips

Additional information

Marais Poitevin The Marais Poitevin, also called la Venise Verte (Green Venice), is a swamp area in the border area of ??the Vendée. With a boat or canoe you can 'get lost' in the many canals and ditches. Because of the many green, overhanging trees, duckweed and the bridges over the canals, it is a mysterious sensation, which you should not miss. Boat trips depart from the villages of Coulon and Arçais. You can ask for a guide, but also explore the area with a map. In addition, there are also numerous cycling and hiking trails to explore this beautiful area.
Boat rental Basic leisure Mervent offers many activities. You can do canoeing, electric boats and stand up paddle.
Château du Puy-du-Fou The Renaissance Château du Puy-du-Fou is located 2 kilometers from the village of Les Épesses. This, during the Vendée revolt, partially destroyed castle now houses the Écomusée de la Vendée and the theme park Le Grand Parc. The castle also plays the leading role in the show 'son et lumière'. During this spectacle, spectacular fireworks and computer-controlled light-water and laser effects are used. The museum is dedicated to the history of the region and the Vendée uprising. The theme park offers two reconstructed villages with 'residents' in traditional costume, one of which was from the Middle Ages and one from the 18th century. Other attractions in the park include the forest and the lakes, a wolf hole and birds of prey demonstrations. http://www.puydufou.com/nl
Fontenay Le Comte Fontenay was the former capital of Bas-Poitou until 1804. The city lies on the river Vendée. In 1804 Napoleon, at the expense of Fontenay-le-Comte, transformed La Roche-sur-Yon into the administrative and military center of the region in order to precipitate the uprising in the Vendée. The fortifications and the castle suffered greatly during the religious disputes of 1621. The renaissance city district has resisted this twist perfectly. Other attractions are the Église Notre-Dame, the Quatre-Tias fountain from 1542, the regional museum Musée Vendéen and the Château de Terre-Neuve.
Les Sables d'Olonne is one of the most famous and popular family resorts in France and has a beautiful, 2 km long beach. This popularity has ensured that the most elegant promenade in Western France has been preserved. Behind the boulevard, dating from the 18th century, lies the cozy harbor. Every morning there is a market in Les Halles near the Notre-Dame-de-Bon-Port church. Between Les Halles and Rue de la Patrie is the narrowest street in France, the 53 centimeter wide Rue de L'Enfer.
La Rochelle is a city with one of the most beautiful coastal areas of France. The historic port is beautifully preserved, with a quay that is bustling with small and big boats. The coast is full of cozy cafés, bars and restaurants where you can stop for a moment to enjoy the people and the view around you. Tourist attractions are everywhere. Walk through the striking gothic gate, the Porte de la Grosse Horloge and you will find yourself in a maze of traffic-free streets, flanked by seventeenth and eighteenth century buildings, which now house nice boutiques. From fashion and household items to delicious pastries and fresh bread, books and antiques, everything can be found there.
