From l’Île-d’Yeu to Tranche-sur-Mer, an exploration between nature and the coast
This is a visit that is as much about the open sea as the forests. After two days exploring the islands of Yeu and Noirmoutier, enjoying their beaches and hiking trails, head for the Marais Poitevin. Its mysterious and uncluttered landscapes will captivate you until you reach the sea at Aiguillon-sur-Mer. Whether you enjoy water sports, hiking or cycling in nature, or simply the festive atmosphere of small fishing ports, this is a trip that meets all expectations.

Saint-Jean-de-MontsL'aiguillon sur mer
Stroll through the charming village of Saint-Jean-de-Monts before heading to the ‘Corsica of the Atlantic’, Île-d’Yeu. Its rocky coast to the west is uncannily reminiscent of Brittany, while its sandy beaches in the east attest to its Vendée character. On foot or by bike you can explore its small villages, mysterious megaliths and coastal paths, for an invigorating walk by the sea. Don’t miss the dolmen de la Planche in Puare, about 4,000 years old.
Reach the Island of Noirmoutier at low tide, via the Passage du Gois and along the Jetée Jacobsen, where an end of the world ambiance reigns. Stroll in the white capital of Noirmoutier-en-l’Île, particularly along Place d’Armes. Its imposing 12th century castle is worth a visit! Armed with a bike or hiking boots, discover the charming Promenade de Souzeaux (along wooded creeks), and the colourful and lively port of Herbaudière, or the bois de la Chaise.
Back on the mainland, walk along the coast to the Marais Poitevin! You’ll be amazed at the gleaming activity of the port of Saint-Gilles-Croix-de-Vie, enjoy the sea and the many activities on view in the famous resort of Sables-d’Olonne, and savour the calmer atmosphere of the beaches and walks of Jard-sur-Mer. End your journey by entering the Marais Poitevin, on the edge of the marais desséché (‘dry marsh’), with its mysterious and haunting atmosphere, and end your day in the charming resort of Longeville-sur-Mer, for a well-deserved rest.
The end of your stay between the sea and marshes, beaches and forests. Drive towards Les Conches and be carried away by the ghostly atmosphere of the marais desséché, before heading down to Tranche-sur-Mer. This seaside resort has a beautiful sandy beach and offers many water sports. Take the road to Pointe d’Arçais, where trails have been established to better admire the views and hear the birds. Finish your trip at Aiguillon-sur-Mer, a small town ideal for swimming, water sports or fishing.
