Heading to La Roche-sur-Yon for the weekend? Discover the Vendée city’s Napoleonic heritage while enjoying its beautiful natural surroundings and vibrant cultural scene. Take a walk around one of the biggest public squares in France, Place Napoléon, still a magnet for wandering vacationers. La Roche-sur-Yon has a perfect location in a valley carved out by eight waterways, with a myriad of possibilities for rambles through the lush green countryside on offer. After a relaxing night’s sleep at your Première Classe hotel, head to the Musée du Chocolat for a tour that’s both instructional and indulgent.
Enjoy a week’s stay in our Première Classe hotels in La Roche-sur-Yon to linger over the historic and natural heritage of the Vendée. Visit the Maison Renaissance on Place de la Vieille-Horloge, the town’s nerve center all the way until the reign of Napoleon. The lush greenery of the Yon Valley is sure to have nature lovers jumping for joy. One of the top spots there is the Chaos du Piquet, an idyllic and unspoiled walking destination. Finally, if horseback riding is more your thing, the Haras de la Vendée has a 11-acre estate dedicated to just that, right in the middle of La Roche-sur-Yon.
La Roche-sur-Yon is the perfect place for a family stay. The lush green town is great for enjoying a stroll and taking time out to relax. The kids are sure to love the mechanical animals in Place Napoléon. Levers at the edge of the water can even make these carved beings, which sink into the green depths of the square’s ponds, come to life. The City Zèbres amusement park is another must-see, with 1,000 m2 of fun on offer: absolute heaven for the little ones. If you’d like to explore the area with your family even more, you can also book a room in a Première Classe hotel in Loire-Atlantique or Mayenne.
