For this escapade
for this “favorite” getaway
many possibilities are offered to you.
For a total and successful immersion, we have concocted a program that should not fail to seduce you.
To begin, we take you to the passage of the Gois.
It takes about 20 minutes to reach this unique site.
As sumptuous as it is surprising, it is quite simply a living spectacle.
At high tide, you have as only horizon this jewel of the Atlantic, this island as beautiful as inaccessible, Noirmoutier…
Then the hours tick by, the water slowly recedes, and a natural bridge, suspended for the time of this maritime interval, connects the island to the continent.
It’s time to watch the fishermen‘s broom on foot…
This place offers indeed a breathtaking scenery and is a delight for the epicureans of the sea. This little corner of paradise is full of tasty shellfish (clams, periwinkles, razor clams…) that will later be served at the table for a tasting with family or friends.
If you want to learn how to fish on foot, this is the ideal time and place.
After this delicious morning appetizer, head to the Bois de la Chaize for a lunch break under the pine trees…
Take the direction of Noirmoutier (about 20 min) and reach this place full of history and emblematic of the island of Noirmoutier.
La plage des Dames, for example, takes us back to another era, to the end of the Roaring Twenties and the first paid vacations… Perhaps it is the succession of these famous white cabins on the beach that gives this place such a singular atmosphere, tinged with a pervasive romanticism.
Still, in the shade of the maritime pines or a holm oak, you will be able to enjoy your picnic and regain some strength before the rest of the program.
A lazy or sporty afternoon… The choice is yours?
If you are curious by nature and like to walk, we advise you to put on your sneakers and continue the adventure with a hike starting at the Bois de la Chaize. This sublime circuit is a condensed version of everything that makes the charm of the island of Mimosas (the other name we give to the island of Noirmoutier). It will take you along sandy beaches, through the woods and into a nature reserve where you will take time to explore the lush flora and fauna.
Here, the fragrant essences of the maritime pines and the houses with blue shutters are not clichés, but reality.
So a piece of advice, open all your chakras and enjoy!

Just want to do nothing because you’ve been dreaming about it all year.

Before going back to your home and if you still have some energy left, you can go to the Herbaudière. It is a typical and very dynamic fishing port that perfectly illustrates the daily life of sailors.
Why not take advantage of this opportunity to do some shopping and bring back some fresh products that you can cook on your return.
