Vendee: a neatly packed seaside getaway

If you're looking for a summer getaway with the kids where you can tick off outdoor activities, historical attractions that all ages will love and the seaside all packaged up neatly into a picturesque part of France, Vendee is just the ticket. While parents will surely oohh and aahh over the elegant 17th-century chateaux and surrounding gardens, the kids will go bananas when they see the monkeys and lions at Zoo des Sables d'Olonne. There's activities here aplenty, whether it's hitting the water on a chartered yacht or cycling along the sunny country roads near your Vendee vacation rental.

Use Vendee's consistent sea breezes for water sports

It's hard to know where to start when you're faced with so many activities near your Vendee vacation rental. Its long coast overlooking the Atlantic Ocean ensures that water sports are always high up on the list. Using the consistent sea breezes, you can take your pick from sailing, windsurfing or kite surfing. If those aren't for you, hop in sea kayaks to paddle along the shoreline at your own pace. Back on dry land, you can ride your road bike along the sunny country lands or go walking along the beautiful coastal footpaths.

Talk a trip through time in Vendee

There are plenty of reasons to stay in a Vendee vacation rental that aren't on the beach. If you're going to do just one thing, make it the Puy du Fou. Perfect for kids, or kids at heart, this unique historical theme park takes visitors though the ages, with chariot races in the Roman amphitheater, Viking longship battles and scenes from sword-wielding musketeers. With more time, the botanical gardens and woodland at Le Court d'Aron is delightful, as are the dozens of chateaux. You'll find museums aplenty where you can step back in time in the Historial de la Vendee or Museum of Prehistory.

There's never a dull moment in Vendee

Vendee's spot along the Atlantic coastline makes it a popular getaway from French families during the summer. The typically hot weather and blue skies make for idyllic beach time, but the throngs do push the prices up. If you'd rather skip the crowds and score yourself a bargain on a Vendee vacation rental, while still basking in sunny climes, try visiting in late spring or early fall. It'll still be warm enough to sit on the beach. Outside these dates, travelers abandon Vendee, but if you don't mind the cooler temperature you can nab rentals at rock-bottom prices.

Vendee: prowling tigers and swinging monkeys

Vendee's diverse landscapes provide plenty of chances for close encounters with wildlife. However, try not to skip the Zoo des Sables d'Olonne, a 3-hectare site which is home to more than 200 species from all corners of the globe. It's perfect for young ones who can spot otters, sea lions and giraffes being feed, or catch a glimpse of the giant elephants, tigers or the reptiles. It doesn't matter what age you are, who doesn't like to see swinging monkeys or magnificent lions? The zoo has a strong emphasis on education and preservation of these endangered species.
