In the north of the island, small streets, buildings and other places full of history are tucked away in Noirmoutier’s town centre. Its shops, sidewalk cafés and restaurants create a bustling atmosphere. In the distance, the scents of maritime pines and evergreen oaks will lure you to the Bois de la Chaise wood and its sheltered coves.
As you travel along the coast, you will come upon the charming village of Le Vieil. There, you can take advantage of the reigning calm to recharge your batteries as you set off on a bicycle ride or read on the beach. Past the agricultural plains, you can explore L’Herbaudière’s fishing and leisure harbour, a pleasant place for a walk with its souvenir shops and restaurants.
