La Vendée

Hello everyone! I recently saw this Destination Vendée 2013 video from Vendée TourismeWatching this made me miss my husband's hometown in France as I recognized popular sites here from previous posts like the coastal town of Les Sables d'Olonne Marais PoitevinLa Vendée countrysideNoirmoutier Island and the popular Medieval Park, Puy de Fou voted as "World's Best Park" in LA. The attractions will transport you back in time of the Knights of the Round Table and the Vikings. This short film makes me want to book plane tickets to this beautiful and green western region of France with over 700 chateaux, country houses and castles close to the Atlantic Ocean with its seaside resort and islands for a quiet retreat immersed in nature, culture and history. 




Can you imagine yourself having a lovely vacation here one summer?
Bon week-end!
Love and light,
Arni

{P.S.  Thanks so much for your sweet birthday wishes. Hugs}

  3. Just enjoying catching up on your recent posts after my holiday. La Vendée ....this brought back so many happy memories of my year in France. I spent a lot of time in this area as I lived in Saintes. It's a part of France which has everything including beautiful beaches without the crowds. You have made me want to go back again!

  10. Oh now I miss France too! Looking at that video, it's easy to see how vast France is (I didn't really know how vast until we spent one week driving the width of it). Hope you had a great birthday! x

  11. That looks absolutely gorgeous. I always thought it would be nice to visit the countryside in France instead of the usual Paris...
