Les Sables d’Olonne
come and discover the city of the Vendée Globe.
You’ve probably heard of it,
it is one of the most dynamic seaside resorts of the Vendée coast.
It is indeed Les Sables-d’Olonne that I am talking about.
Both quiet and wild,
this city has many treasures to show you.
No less than eleven beaches await you in this agglomeration. From the urban beach to the wild beach, you will have the choice. But before lounging with your feet in a fan on the ocean, discover the must-sees of this city of character whose reputation is well established.
After having an artisanal ice cream at Petales de Roses, walk along the embankment along the sandy beach. At the turn of a street, you will land in the district of Penotte Island. It is a pedestrian area where the streets are decorated with beautiful works made of shells. A must-see.
Continuing your visit, you will reach the streets lined with stores of all kinds.
Les Sables d’Olonne is also the city of the old villas of style “Charrier” in edge of sea.
Continue along the embankment and you will see the mast of the boats of the marina from where the Vendée Globe racers leave.
If you move away from the city, a completely different scenery awaits you. Make your way to the Marshes.
On foot, by bike, by boat or by paddle, visit the salt marshes and discover the unparalleled know-how of the salt workers.
After that, you will have deserved a little swim on one of the beaches of the Vendée Globe city!
