The Vendee is an obvious choice for sun, sand and the sea, but it isn't known for its tourist attractions nor history - much of the region was reclaimed from the sea a few generations ago. This makes it difficult for visitors to find something to do once they've tired of the beach. Sure, there's La Rochelle, but other than that... surely there must be more to see and do? Angela shows you where.
Angela has been writing about the Vendee for over a decade and she really knows all the hidden gems which no other travel guide seems to publicise. Craft centres, artists' exhibitions, little science parks, activity centres, amazing views from watertowers open to the public. This book is great for everyone from young couples to families and retired folks. It is the must-have book for the region. None of the big-name tourist guides come close.
