Take a leisurely bike ride along the Atlantic coast

One of the bike rides recommended by the campsite goes by the name "La Boucle des Artisans" or the "Craftsmens’ loop". Over about 35 kilometres, heading towards Saint-Jean-de-Monts, you’ll be able to discover the way of life of the inhabitants of the Vendée marshlands, with the famous Bourrine (traditional cottage) in Rosalie and an authentic working windmill nearby too.

Further along, you can cross the well-preserved and fascinating world of the salt marshes and admire the landscapes shaped by the salt-marsh workers over the years.
