Around Les Sables d'Olonne

"The most beautiful beach in Europe" would be in Les Sables d'Olonne. Why not? The sand is as fine as you could wish for and the beach stretches for three kilometres. That's at least two good reasons to dedicate it.

It was the main town on the Côte de Lumière in the 19th century and was recognised as a seaside resort in the early 20th century. To the south, over eleven kilometres, the wild coast offers a landscape of golden sand interspersed with rocks. A succession of small, pleasant beaches, almost secret because less frequented. The site is ideal to recharge your batteries in the fresh air, to stroll and take a few dips, before returning to the bustle of the seaside resort. It is also the town that hosts the Vendée Globe.

To help you organise your stay in the Vendée and your visit to the town of Les Sables d'Olonne, we have selected a number of campsites near Les Sables d'Olonne.
