Walking in the Vendée

The French are passionate about walking and nowhere is that more unambiguous than in the Vendée, where “Rondos” or organised walks are a regular feature. Within the Vendée there are thousands of miles of marked walks, in fact virtually every commune will have several of them with clearly marked posts, usually painted with coloured arrows to indicate the route. The details of these routes are published in small brochures which are available from the local Maire or local tourist office. The brochures contain a small map, the colour of the route, its distance, the approximate time it takes to walk the route and things of interest to see along the way. There are excellent walks along the whole of the Vendée coast, these are well marked and take one off the beaten track where one can see sights and experience things which only walking allows. One can lose oneself in the tranquillity and take in scents of the forest, or stroll along the toll paths of the canals on the Marais Poitevin, which were formerly used by horses to pull the barges along. There is no better way to see anywhere than by foot, and the Vendée is no exception.
