Les Sables d’Olonne
About 50 km from the campsite, discover the famous seaside resort of Les Sables d’Olonne!
Les Sables d’Olonne is the capital of sailing, the starting point of the famous and mythical Vendée Globe race, a non-stop round-the-world sailing race without assistance. On this occasion, you can take a walk on the pontoon located on the Olona port.
All year round, the embankment, facing the ocean and with its back to the Grand Casino des Sables, is a popular place for walkers. The magical light of the bay of Les Sables d’Olonne where the Vendée coast is rightly called “coast of light” will seduce you. You will be able to stroll in front of the ocean on several kilometers… In the evening, a small ice cream or an aperitif on the terrace will be welcome.
As for restaurants, go to the Quai Garnier opposite the commercial port, where the multitude of restaurants will seduce your taste buds!
Discover also the numerous shops in the lively pedestrian streets of the city center, the typical food market…
As for the visit, the unavoidable district of Ile Penotte is a must with its walls decorated with shells for colorful and beautiful frescoes.
The district of la Chaume, an old village of fishermen and market gardeners, accessible by a small ferry that crosses the channel, will also seduce you by its charm and its architectural elements: the priory of Saint Nicolas, the Arundel tower (which watches over the entrance of the port), the great mural of Place Sainte Anne…
Finally, nautical clubs, thalasso, golf, casino,… offer many leisure activities. This famous seaside resort is alive all year round thanks to its many offers of various activities.
