Would you like information on or a booking for one of the Vendée’s fabulous events? Our four Tourist Information Offices can help.
Voted "Best Park in the World" in 2014 in Orlando, Le Puy du Fou ® offers great shows and adventures for the whole family! It’s only a hundred kilometres away, so don’t miss it while you are in Saint-Gilles-Croix-de-Vie.
Every day from April to September, the Grand Parc puts on wonderful spectacles in French, but English and Dutch headphones are available. On Friday and Saturday nights from June and September, the fabulous main show takes place at Cinéscénie on the largest stage in the world.
There is also a magical Christmas spectacle at Le Puy du Fou every year.
Seventeen kilometres off the Vendée coast is the Ile d'Yeu, pearl of the Atlantic, reached by ferry from Saint-Gilles-Croix-de-Vie or Fromentine. It is only 23 sq. km. and known for its natural beauty and rugged coastline, the cliffs, beaches and coves – if you like hiking or biking you’ll love the tracks and trails.
Book your ferry crossings with the Compagnie Vendéenne or the Compagnie Yeu Continent from Saint-Gilles-Croix-de-Vie from April to October or from Fromentine all year round.
Don’t take your car – discover the Vendée in July and August on day tours by bus from Saint-Gilles-Croix-de-Vieux. Visit the Grand Parc and Cinéscénie at Le Puy du Fou, the Ile d'Yeu and La Rochelle and other beauty spots.
