There is no need to introduce the town which has become the home of the Vendée Globe. This famous non-stop round-the-world sailing race sees skilled sailors braving the dangers of the ocean and constantly pushing back human limits. This event has greatly contributed to the reputation of Les Sables d’Olonne, but long before this race existed, the incredible charms of this seaside resort were appreciated by many.
It’s pleasant to stroll around the authentic districts (port of La Chaume, the island of Penotte) and the narrow and picturesque streets, to smell the salt from the ocean and feel the wind in your hair… a real feeling of freedom!
You will also discover long stretches of sandy beaches that are among the most beautiful in the Vendée.
Fishing and/or water sports enthusiasts will also find plenty to do.
There is an incredible network of cycle paths to ride along the wild coasts of this preserved coastline and discover breathtaking panoramas.
If you are a night owl or if you are simply looking for an evening out, you will not be disappointed as there is plenty of entertainment (concerts, shows…) and delicious food (dare to try the seafood platter, it’s the local speciality and it’s a real treat for the taste buds!)
