To discover the area around our campsite, you absolutely must visit Le Pays de Challans, also known as the “Vendée des Iles” for its geographical location.

Challans, capital of duck and poultry

The Challans duck has made the town famous for many decades. This breed of duck is thought to have originated around 1650, from a cross between a wild duck and a cane brought by the Dutch who came to reshape the Breton marshes of the Vendée.

Challans quickly made a name for itself as the capital of duck, organising several poultry markets in the region. With its Label Rouge certification, Challans poultry is renowned among gourmets for the quality of its meat and its finesse.

Situated at the crossroads of major routes, the town of Challans has become the hub of north-western Vendée over the years.

Visit Challans

The second-largest town in the Vendée after La Roche-sur-Yon, Challans will win you over with its authentic charm and relaxed lifestyle.

Just a few kilometres from the beaches and seaside resorts, the town is packed with architectural gems that are a must-see for families and friends alike:

  • Abbaye de Coudrie,
  • Abbaye de l’Ile Chauvet in Bois de Céné (open from July to mid-September)
  • Chapelle de la Bloire,
  • Bourrine à Rosalie in Sallertaine (open from mid-April to mid-September in the afternoons)
  • Moulin de Châteauneuf

Discover the historic heart of Challans in a fun and educational way, and let us tell you all about the fascinating history of this charming Vendée town.

Don’t miss the old-fashioned “Autrefois Challans” fair, held on 2 Thursdays in July and August, where you can discover the traditions of Challans’ heritage. More informations
