Our Editorial team's advice

Now the principal city in the Vendée region, it was founded around the old village of La Roche-sur-Yon by Napoleon on 25th May 1804 in order to bring peace to Vendée.
If you happen to pass by here, do not miss out on seeing the thoroughbred horses and trotters of one of the major stud farms in France.
