Vendome is a town of just under 20,000 residents on the Loire River in the picturesque Loir Valley about 130 miles southwest of Paris. The Count de Rochambeau who led 6,000 French troops in the American Revolution, here on the Peninsula, was born in Vendome. In the late 1980s, Hampton and Vendome had an active student exchange program. Vendome and Hampton have been sister cities since about 1980.
