Photos of the Vendée
It is often
said that a picture is worth a thousand words, and in the case of
searching out a holiday destination this saying could not be more apt.
How can one adequately describe the sun setting over a picturesque
fishing harbour or two hundred birds of prey in flight or the lined face
of a local farmer as he tends his field of sunflowers. The truth is
that photographs are a little snapshot of life, where just for a moment
time stands still and we are allowed to share in its beauty and wonder.
Here at the guide we believe that we can best convey to you, the reader,
the variety and splendour of the Vendéen countryside from its fabulous
sandy coastlines though the Bas Bocage and Plain to the Haute Bocage in
the North East of the Department. Within that we will attempt to show
you, the reader, those activities and areas large and small that are
unique to this enchanting region, such as the Vendéen Wetlands or
Marais, the spectacle that is the Puy du Fou together with many other
beautiful and fascinating sights.
For these reasons our aim is to have the largest collection of
photographs of the Vendée on the internet. We have categorised them into
sections. Where a photograph would fall into two or more categories
they have been included in all of those sections, however where there
are limited photographs of a place or event (then) they may only appear
on the main page and therefore they will not be listed below.
In those cases by simply clicking on an image it will appear, full size, in a new window.
Most of the images within this website are our own, however there a few
that are not. Where possible we have added a credit to the author, for
the copying of these images please see terms and conditions.
