Walking along the french coast

The Vendée is a very varied rambling area for those who like walking. From our house in Beauvoir-sur-Mer we already set out several routes. For example along the salt pans, where salt is still being harvested. One of the economic foundations of this region in the past. Of course walking is also nice along the local oyster farms, and the small picturesque harbour “port du Bec”. Our house is in the middle of a bird sanctuary. When walking you can encounter a lot of different animals; little egrets, Ibises, beavers and martens.

Walking on the island Noirmoutier

The island Noirmoutier, at the coast at Beauvoir-sur-Mer, is a pleasant area for all kinds of very different walking tours. From beautiful beach walks, to walks through the pine forests and bird sanctuaries of the island. More inland, there are many routes as well. The landscape is more hilly is this part of the Vendée. The hiking tours are generally in and around lakes, castles and old villages.

Walking around Pornic

A bit more up north about 30 km (18 miles) from our house, in the surroundings of Pornic, is a famous walking route along the coast. The so called “sentier des douaniers”. This old route was used for hundreds of years against the local smugglers.

We have maps at your disposal, so you will be able to find the walking tours to your liking.
