The Noirmoutier Island’s land offers a sumptuous opportunity to the earth and the sea to mix  and create splendid products…
This fine alchemy can be tasted through five unmissable flavors. Ready for a tasty ride? 

On this land which breadth, at the narrowest point of the island, does not exceed a few hundred meters, where the ocean deeply soaks the marshes and polders, the match between the earth and the sea is of course celebrated all year long. The Noirmoutier Island’s soil, thanks to a gentle and pleasant climate, enjoys both these influences. The flavors we hope you’ll be tasting during your stay are also the fruits of a light and sandy ground spread on a granitic and acid soil with an underground reservoir filled with mineral salt. They finally, of course, benefit from the traditional savoir-faire of the Noirmoutier Island growers… 

Taste the most marine potatoes!

On Noirmoutier Island, potatoes thrive in the particularly mild climate and the salty air. They grow in sandy earth, enriched by seaweed, which is where they get their unique flavour.

On Noirmoutier Island, salt harvesting is an ancestral technique that has been passed down from generation to generation. To produce salt, it takes not only the salt maker’s talent, but also sun and wind. You can buy packets of salt directly from the salt makers at the salterns in the summer or from the salt cooperative all year round.
