Admire the dunes, the rocky coast, the salt marshes and the oak and pine forests while taking in the fresh ocean air. The Vendéen coast is truly an exceptional place.
There is more to La Vendée than beaches! The region has sprawling dunes such as La Paracou and Sauveterre, with a particular flora, that protect the hinterland from the winds and tides. The rocky coast just a few steps from the campsite is the perfect place to contemplate the sun set over the Atlantic Ocean.
By foot or by bike, go for a stroll in the salt marshes and the ornithological reserve in l’Ile d’Olonne. Observe the large array of bird species and learn how salt is harvested and in particular “la fleur de sel”, the “nectar from the marshes”. The salt farmers in l’Ile d’Olonne are present and welcome you during the harvest period from June to September.
