Old stones and visiting sites

The essentials

At Les Lucs-sur-Boulogne, the Historial de la Vendée tells you the history of the department from prehistory to the present day, while at the Renaissance castle of Apremont, you can follow in the footsteps of those who made the history of the site.

Off the beaten track

The millstone at the Moulin à Élise in Poiré-sur-Vie is still turning thanks to the volunteer millers. An ancestral know-how to be rediscovered with pleasure. Then at the Museum of kitchen utensils, in Saint-Denis-la-Chevasse, you will plunge into your childhood memories… A real Proust’s madeleine!

Dare to stroll and get lost in the streets of Vie et Boulogne: beautiful residences that bear witness to history are hidden at the bend in the road or on a country road.
