The museum 'bourrine' house of Bois Juquaud

Spending a holiday at the seaside in Vendée can also be a good way of discovering the history of the surroundings. By visiting the “bourrine” of Bois Juquaud, you will discover the lifestyle of the Vendée in the 19th century. Behind the original name of “bourrine” is hidden the traditional Vendée house. These houses were built of soil covered with reeds. They were mainly inhabited by the farmers of peat, an extremely rich soil that was ideal for the cultures of the time. From the Zagarella campsite, visit this location and admire this building, still fully furnished and loaded with memories of the lifestyle of the Vendée in the 19th century.
