Check out this drone video of a beautiful spot in west-central France, compliments of contributor Matt38310. He filmed this in the area around Saint-Michel-en-l'Herm in the Vendée department. The magnificent landscapes here belie the tumultuous history of the region. The Vendée was a primary battleground in the Hundred Years War with England and the Wars of Religion of the 16th century. Two centuries later, it was the first part of France to revolt against the Revolutionary Government in 1793.
