Find your campsite in the heart of Vendée, one hour from La Rochelle and Nantes, at a crossroads from the gorgeous beaches of Vendée's coastline, Marais Poitevin Regional Nature Park and Le Puy du Fou theme park and visit La Roche sur Yon.
Visit Napoleonian town La Roche sur Yon: a modern and historic town at once.
La Roche sur Yon's shape and organization, its institutional and majestic buildings – the city hall, department hall, court house or Saint Louis church – are remaining proofs of Napoleon's will to put France on the path of modernity – the city was built out of nothing in 1804.
La Roche sur Yon unveils its many riches now. See for instance this bizarre mechanical zoo that enables you to give life to the animals on Place Napoléon – a fun and original activity for the whole family.
Visit its Renaissance theatre, discover Haras Nationaux de Vendée dedicated to the noble art of horse riding, get the pulse of the cultural events organized by « Grand’R » and « Fuzz’Yon » associations. Shopping addicts and gourmets can always head to Les Flanneries shopping mall, the biggest in Vendée, or to the great Marché des Halles – farmers market.
