WALK UNDER THE EVERGREEN OAKS OF BOIS DE LA CHAISE
Located on the sandstone northeast of Noirmoutier-en-l’Île, sheltered from the westerly winds, the Bois de la Chaise wood stands out for the variety of its Mediterranean species: evergreen oaks, strawberry trees, maritime pines and mimosas bloom in a very carefully arranged disarray. The painter Auguste Renoir was won over by this inspired, inspiring place. Will you love it just as much?
