Puy du Fou
Our campsite le Chaponnet is located just over an hour’s drive from the Puy du Fou.
However, how can you envisage a stay in Vendée without considering a visit to one of the most famous theme parks in the world.
There is no overstatement here; the Puy du Fou has been awarded many times. The list below is not exhaustive, but it speaks for itself.
- Voted “best theme park in the world” in Los Angeles in 2012 and Orlando in 2014
- Since 2015, four creations have won the title of “Best World Creation.”
- France’s favourite theme park in 2016
This original park transports you into another dimension, out of time. You will experience the exploits of the Vikings, taste the frenetic atmosphere of a chariot race in a Roman arena, plunge into the heart of the First World War as a soldier lost in a trench and dreading the rain of shells…
You will walk through the narrow streets of a period village and wander through the heart of a medieval town where you will discover sometimes forgotten trades (stonecutter, enamellers, glassmaker…).
To finish your day at the Puy du Fou, how can we not recommend you to attend the Cinescénie, the biggest night show in the world.
It is a unique experience, simply sublime, moving and unforgettable.
Yes, the Puy du Fou is an invitation to travel back in time; it is a must-see site to be visited at least once in your life.
