Vendée does have some of the finest Theme Parks of their kind in France. The largest and best known Theme Park in the Vendée is without doubt the Puy-du-Fou. The Park offers two distinctly different experiences with the Grand Parc du Puy du Fou operating during daytime hours and the spectacular Son et lumière of the Cinescenie which operates after dark. Both are unique and are world renown. The daytime experience requires an early start if you intend to see all of the attractions and such is the popularity of the Cinescenie that booking well in advance is advised. If you want to get the most of your visit to the Vendée, there is no better way than by cycling or walking. One can discover the hidden treasures that only a leisurely pace will reveal. Within the Vendée a vast network of cycle tracks can be found, these have been designed for riding in complete safety while taking in the natural attractions that Vendée has to offer. There are over 1000 kilometres of tracks you can take a complete cycle tour of the Vendée. On the tracks everything has been put in place for maximum safety including designated cycle lanes and all the necessary signposts. One will also find excellent picnic areas along the route for relaxing and refreshing oneself. A holiday never seems complete without a visit to one of those colourful markets that France is so famous for. Though there has been a decline both in the number and size of markets in recent years due mainly to the increase in super and hyper-markets with lower prices and a larger range of products, there are still ample markets left for the visitor to enjoy. La Châtaigneraie, Fontenay-le-Comte, Chantonnay, Bressuire, Cholet and Pouzauges are all local towns hosting weekly markets. If you fancy something a little more informal and some potential real French bargains then there are plenty of Vide Greniers (car boot sales/ house clearance sales) across the region.
