Towns and Villages of the Vendee

La Faute-sur-Mer.

La Faute-sur-mer. Across the river Lay from Aiguillon-sur-mer this seaside town boast one of best beaches in the Vendee,some good restaurants and  one of the largest mussel farms in France.
This purpose built holiday resort is the last beach in the Vendee as you head south, it is on a sandy pennisular with the Atlantic Ocean to the west, the river Lay to the East and the pennisular ends at the point d'arcay in the gulf of Picton.
To protect the sands from erosion the dunes were planted with pine and evergreen oak trees which makes for great walks. The southern end of the point d'Arcay is a protected nature reserve and annually thousands of migrating birds stop over here.
Holiday makers are well catered for with good shops, bars restaurants,cafes and even a Casino.
The 10kms of beaches at La Faute-sur-mer are some of the finest in the Vendee and 4 of them have lifeguard stations during the summer season. There is an official nudes beach at the point de Arcay though there is no survaillence  by life guards here.
