Maché, France - June 18, 2011

Maché was on our itinerary as a convenient overnight stop. The campsite is called Val de Vie and has 78 pitches (sites) of which 69 have electricity and 16 of these are permanent. The site is open from May 1st through September 30th and an overnight stay costs $30 to $42 depending on the season.
The town itself is in the Vendée department of the Pays de la Loire region of western France. The population is around 1,200 and has been growing fairly sharply in recent years - from 740 in 1968, 768 in 1975, 789 in 1982, 899 in 1990 and broke 1000 at 1,093 in 1999. There is some new construction in town with a total of around 606 dwellings in 2007 of which 524 are primary dwellings, 61 secondary residences and 21 vacant dwellings.
There is a church and a school. See snaps here.
