    • Horse racing at the Malbrande racecourse, in Talmont-Saint-Hilaire

      Do you like horse racing? The beautiful Malbrande racecourse (also called the Sables d'Olonne racecourse) welcomes you to Talmont-Saint-Hilaire for a moment with family or friends. Come and see a horse race in the Vendée, here the welcome is friendly for regulars as well as for horse racing lovers passing through. For a day or a nice evening, there is a brasserie and something to eat inside and outside. The restaurant has a glass roof with a view of the racetrack. For an exotic and original moment, come experience the atmosphere of horse racing!

      The racecourse, the first version of which dates from 1970 (modernized in 2005) consists of 2 tracks, for the different types of races: trotting races, gallop races and hurdle races (arrangements of the gallop track).

      Is this your first experience? At the counter, you will be given a booklet to understand the environment of horse racing and how to bet, so you can have fun understanding the rules and the challenges of these impressive races, full of speed and tactics! It is possible to visit the stables (for a small additional fee).

    What a fab evening can be had here, the only thing that can dampen it for us is that they allow smoking in the stands. To be honest not many people do but when you are sitting close to someone smoking it is not nice at all. However, that being said we love a night at the races, the betting is easy and the staff are more than willing to help explain the system to those who do not understand, including the English. We always take our own drinks but eat at the takeaway, the kebab sandwich is great! Best advice I can give you is to take cushions to sit on as they are concrete seating areas, but if you go you will have a great evening, whether you are experienced in betting, or not like us 😉

    Come for a premium PMU meeting, a big crowd, so much the better for the atmosphere, few machines available for betting, few counters too. Hence, long queues. I had a mishap when I wanted to withdraw my winnings without wanting to play the next race, the lady at the counter reproached me for this fact and reminded me of the queue with an air that I did not not appreciated at all. Obviously I told him that I had just done it and that I was therefore aware of the waiting time. In addition the next race was in 15 minutes, so I would like to know when should we come?! She also told me that it wasn't her fault if there were people, not enough machines and staff, yes, but that's no reason to welcome me like that. I took it upon myself, I told her that I had nothing against her and I wished her good luck. She bluntly waved her hand at me saying "come on, I don't have time" I came happy, in addition to having won a few euros, I left angry and disappointed. Being a regular at racetracks, this is the first time I've encountered such behavior. Despite everything, a pleasant environment and magnificent horses with a very nice racing spectacle to watch.

    On vacation in Talmont st-Hilaire, we had information that the racecourse was organizing a day dedicated to children. So on paper, it sends dreams, childcare, make-up activities, inflatable structures, pony rides, snacks and cotton candy and all this offered... We arrived at 4:00 p.m. for the opening. 5 euros per adult, free for children. So we paid 10 euros for 4. This seems reasonable at first. Except that the snack arrived at 6:30 p.m. when we left. With a coca cola snack and a slice of never-before-seen Haris brioches. The worst snack for children who never consume coca cola. A queue of more than 1 hour for cotton candy in full sun only one device, the non-existent pony ride because replaced by a carriage ride pulled by goats. 1 single inflatable structure for more than 80 children. In short how to make profit at the expense of people. Unacceptable, you should be ashamed to send dreams to children and to offer such a service. And moreover, having never made a PMU bet because, at the base, we came for the children, it takes me 2 minutes to make a bet and I get scolded like a child for being too long. I do not recommend at all, a money factory.
