What to do during your family holiday in Vendée

This region reserves a thousand and one surprises for summer visitors. Your hotel in Vendée will reveal you some secrets for a successful stay.

Immersion in the “Grand Bleu”

Vendée means above all the ocean, this quiet and infinite force, which runs along the whole French West coast. In Les Sables d’ Olonne, one of the most famous seaside resorts on the coast, the large sandy beach borders the Atlantic and its waives; the tide is the rhythm of the day. In this whirlwind of life, guaranteed sensations, whether you are sailing, surfing or just swimming.

Islands and farmlands

During your holidays in the Vendée region, you will discover a wide variety of landscapes. Beyond the coastline, the farmland offers a green stroll, the  Poitevin swamp welcomes you in a haven of greenery and authenticity, the Breton marsh floats between land and sea… Offshore, two jewels are worth the detour: the island of Yeu and the island of Noirmoutier, which benefit from an exceptionally mild climate.

Fishing the periwinkles

These little black gastropods cling to the rocks. They are easy to pick up, so their fishing is accessible to everyone! Then at low tide, you just have to walk along the beach with a bucket. You will see many followers “hunt” when the sea retreats. Then, a few minutes in boiling and salted water, and your periwinkles are ready! Serve with toasted and buttered rye bread.

A thalasso in Les Sables d’Olonne

Once again, the ocean is a treasure, a source of benefits for the body and the mind. Your hotel in Vendée has a wellness area and spa, with heated swimming pool, treatment cabins, sauna, hammam, fitness room… Give yourself a moment of relaxation, a thalasso break in Les Sables d’ Olonne or a vital relaxation, with scrubbing and multi-jet bath.

The fascinating universe of the Puy du Fou

Its theme park and night show are world-renowned. During your holiday in Vendée, meet History at Le Puy du fou, in a natural and enchanting setting. In the evening, come and admire the 200 actors of Cinécénie, with special effects, 3D videos, games of lights… a captivating show lasting 1:30!

The entire Jardins de l’ Atlantique team, your hotel in Vendée, is at your disposal to make your stay rich in discovery! And you’ll have plenty of surprises and lots of entertainment
