Les Sables-d'Olonne The Essential
Recommended
An important spa resort on the Lumiere coast, the town was built on an offshore sand bar and now stretches between its port with its lively quays and its long gently sloping beach of fine sand. This runs for more than 3 km at the foot of the famous Remblai. High winds and a gentle way of life, this seems to be the people of Les Sables' somewhat contradictory slogan.
