The Salt Marshes
If the Vendée is known for the wild beauty of its long sandy stretches, this territory has many other surprises in store for you. You can also consult the ” Our experiences ” section to get an overview of the dream days we have concocted for you.
We invite you for example to discover the salt marshes of life on the side of Saint Hilaire de Riez.
A few steps away from our campsite, you will discover a remarkable natural site which will not fail to seduce you. A total immersion in a postcard setting to discover the mysteries surrounding the profession of the salt worker, that’s what awaits you.
The salt marshes are the successful marriage of man and nature.
These landscapes have been shaped for centuries by men so that the latter can harvest the white gold, otherwise known as salt.
It is this ancestral trade that you will discover… Precise gestures and anchored in the memories, to observe the work of the saunier is already a true spectacle in itself.
And it’s the perfect place to reconnect with nature.
The water and the earth make up this natural space, you will feel, believe us, soft and comforting vibrations. It is a trip, in any case, that we advise you.
