The beaches and forests of the Vendée
The Vendée is a department essentially turned towards the Atlantic Ocean and its wealth.
One of the strong points of the area are the Vendée beaches. You will find many of them in the vicinity of the campsite La Vertonne and with varied landscapes. It’s up to you to find the one you like best.
Le Veillon – Great site of France
If you like a more preserved nature, choose the magnificent beach of Veillon in Talmont Saint Hilaire and its lagoon! Since 2014, the Blue Flag label rewarding the quality of bathing water has been floating on the Veillon beach.
This natural and preserved space will seduce you. It is in the process of being classified as a “Grand Site de France”. Indeed, the Veillon beach is located at the mouth of the Payré estuary, at the bottom of which you will find the charming port of Guittière and its oyster producers. They offer tastings in an authentic setting with a view of the Pointe de Payré or the Veillon lagoon. Nearby, the salt marshes and their salt workers will make you discover their white gold.
Vendée forests side
The Vendée coastline between Les Sables d’Olonne and Talmont offers you a whole coastal strip of holm oak and maritime pine forests.
Following the rocky coast, you will discover this typical forest strip of the area.
