A "land of giants and flowering broom” was how Napoleon described the Vendée. The giants of the Vendée welcome you from all eras: Gilles de Rais, companion of Joan of Arc; Charette and his horsewomen; Clemenceau and de Lattre, both born in Mouilleron. As for the broom, these yellow flowers are dotted among the patchwork fields, venturing out into the marshes and colouring the hillsides, to be forgotten on the plain. Discover the labelled companies scattered throughout this small region which has played a part in writing history and which lacks only mountains to contain all of France’s landscapes.
