Puy du Fou
Puy du Fou is one of the best theme parks in the whole of France and is located around 82km to the northeast of Le Pin Parasol campsite. Puy du Fou focuses on history, education and fun and is the most popular theme park in the Vendee and fourth most popular in the whole of France.
Puy du Fou is set in excess of 110 acres of parkland which is cleverly separated into different areas. Within each area you’ll be able to immerse yourself into the history of that particular time zone, from the Romans and Vikings to the Medieval age and the famous French Musketeers. Although there are activities and shows throughout the day, the main show at Puy du Fou takes place during the evening and in our opinion is not to be missed.
Chateau de Talmont
Take a drive approximately 34km to the southeast of Le Pin Parasol campsite and you’ll eventually come across the town of Talmont St Hilaire and it’s impressive Chateau de Talmont. Overlooking the river Vie, the Chateau occupies a wonderful aspect and is understandably a popular tourist attraction in the area. Originally constructed in the 10th century, the Chateau has had many owners including non other than King Richard the 1st who was more commonly referred to as Richard the Lionheart. Although mostly ruined, there are great views to be had over the surrounding area from the two towers that still stand high above the Chateau. Visitors to the Chateau de Talmont will be able to find out more about life in the Vendee in a castle through the shows and exhibitions that are put on during high season.

Located 4km to the southeast of Le Pin Parasol campsite, Le Grand Defi is a brilliant forest adventure playground which is perfect for those aged 6 years and over. Kids and adults alike will love the high rope courses, rope bridges and zip wires and those looking for a little extra can try their hand at a spot of paint balling which is also on site.
If you’re into fun filled days at the pool with plenty of excitement involved then a trip to Atlantic Toboggan should be on your agenda.
