Before wondering what you should see in the Vendée, why not take the time to visit Saint-Hilaire-la-Forêt and explore the many riches of this rural town: the Saint-Hilaire Church, the sacred La Courolle fountain, or the famous Dolmen de la Sulette that will make you eager to learn more about the megalithic lands of the Vendée. So, ready to go back in time? Visit the CAIRN Préhisto’site (an archeological center for education and research on the Neolithic Age), a cultural center dedicated to Prehistory with 3 exhibition rooms covering 350 m2. The center organizes activities and workshops so that the whole family can enjoy the visit! Want to take a Vendean walk through the country? Follow the bike paths and hiking trails to explore the sights and sounds of the Saint-Hilaire countryside.
If you are travelling with children, feel the rush at Le Château des Aventuriers in Avrillé, a riddles and history theme park located a few minutes’ drive from the campsite, built around a real castle (La Guignardière). Learn while having fun at La Folie de Finfarine, a center dedicated to the lives of bees and honey production, a few kilometers from La Grand’Métairie. And don’t forget to breathe in the sea air during your holiday! From Saint-Hilaire-la-Forêt, take the D19 towards Jard-sur-Mer to swim in the sea, walk along the beach or watch the sun set over the Atlantic Ocean. The village of Saint-Hilaire-la-Forêt, part of the Vendée Grand Littoral group of 20 charming towns, is ideally located for an unforgettable trip to the Vendée!
