Saint-Gilles-Croix-de-Vie

  • English
    • It is a port city, dynamic and pleasant to explore during the season, but also all year round! Crossed by the river La Vie (previously, it was two towns, now joined into one), it is a high place for sardine fishing (there is even a sardine brotherhood in the town), Yum! It is the fishing activity at the port of Croix-de-Vie (one of the oldest ports in France) which was first the economic flagship of the city, before the “pleasure” side became complementary. around the middle of the 20th century at Port La Vie. For once, let's start exploring the city, before ending at the beach! Visit the Atelier de la Sardine, an eco-museum, in the last Vendée cannery, you will discover the “Pearl of the Gods”, this silver fish, very simple but so tasty and full of good things for the organism! We continue to the Maison du Pêcheur, a small interpretation center in a house with furniture and everyday objects from the 1920s.

      Idea for a walk: to occupy the children, start a treasure hunt! Concocted by the Tourist Office, they allow you to discover the region in a smart and fun way for children. Click! Like all seaside resorts on the Côte de Lumière, Saint-Gilles-Croix-de-Vie has a beautiful embankment where you can walk to admire the ocean and the sandy beaches. Shops and restaurants follow one another. Continue the walk to Port La Vie, the modern and pleasant marina. Continue to the Pont de la Concorde, which once linked the two towns together, on either side of the river. The Joséphine Tower (in homage to the Empress), a little further, is the lighthouse of the Tour du Vieux Môle. There is a Public Garden next to it.

      Shopping question, if you have always dreamed of having a real bowl with your first name written on it? Meet at the Faïencerie Nistar where they have been handcrafting since 1936.

      We will not deprive ourselves of the beach, 3.5 km of fine sand, pretty little cabins and a nautical club with lots of activities. also that, the holidays in Saint-Gilles-Croix-de-Vie!
