Les Sables-d'Olonne

  • English
    • Les Sables d'Olonne is a large town, which brings together the municipalities of Château d'Olonne, Sables d'Olonne and Olonne-sur-Mer, to become the second largest municipality in Vendée and the Côte from light. A community redesigned to offer shared services, an organization designed to guarantee the best reception to numerous holidaymakers, who come to enjoy the attractions of this very large Vendée seaside resort. Les Sables d'Olonne is above all the culture of the ocean, everything is turned towards it to make the most of it. 3 kilometers of lively embankment (seaside promenade), festive in summer and pleasant all year round, to enjoy the beauty of the coast... and of shops, restaurants and cafes ! This is also where the Casino is located, the thalassotherapy establishments to indulge and take care of yourself... And every 4 years, Les Sables d'Olonne hosts the start of the Vendée Globe, a fantastic sailing race in lonely around the world, nonstop and unassisted. The greatest sailors come to rub shoulders with the elements, in a unique communion, an atmosphere of respect and admiration, palpable months before the departure of these giants of the seas...

      It is the arrival of the railway (we can nowadays, go there by TGV all year round!), sea bathing and paid vacations which propelled the small Vendée town to the rank of upscale seaside resort, from the beginning of the 20th century. Cod fishing, salt trading, the nautical origins of Les Sables d'Olonne do not date from yesterday, boats docked in its port for 800 years. Today, there are 3 ports in the city: Port Olona can accommodate 1,500 boats, it is the largest in Vendée. The Port de Plaisance continues Quai Garnier to accommodate very large boats up to 15.50m, nearby, a lively district! There is also a fishing port and a trading port.
