    • 10km from Les Sables d'Olonne, we enter one of the most touristy parts of the Vendée! It is a pretty, quiet village of salt workers, a little outside the big seaside resort, which will delight those who want to be close to the party while staying away! The panoramic bell tower of the Saint-Martin de Vertou church offers a very beautiful 360-degree view, after a climb of 80 steps which is worth it (you can take guided tours), you overlook the surrounding marshes. The Musée de la Petite Gare is an ecomuseum on the life of the inhabitants through the centuries, which can be discovered on a guided tour with the bell tower. In season, also visit the Salorge, which is the old warehouse for salt dating from after the First World War. It is inseparable from the life of the salt marshes of the surrounding Olonnes. Two marshes are exploited by young salt workers in the town and guided tours are organized by the Sauniers de la Vertonne. Go and see the Pont de la Salaire , on the Vertonne. In the town, there is also an old mill: the Moulin de Gueffard, which is being renovated by a local association. For patient admirers of birds, an interesting observatory is to be used from May to July in the town, managed by the ADEV (Association for the Defense of the Environment in Vendée). Do you like motor sports? Go to Circuit Mécamax, which is one of the most beautiful in the department. There are plenty of activities to do for groups, companies and individuals who want to do quad or karting courses.
