The hotel is ideally situated : between two islands south of the oyster farming ports. This stay is based on the attractiveness of the insular peculiarities: you will appreciate Yeu and Noirmoutier islands and their differences.
Your bike stay in Vendée:
Day 1: Arrival in Bouin
In the middle of the marshes, you will be able to discover an important and rich heritage in the architectural lines of the old houses of the 14th century church.
Day 2: Noirmoutier island | 65 Km
To reach this « natural » destination, we take, a quite unique submersible road at low tide: the passage of the Gois. The Noirmoutier island : the city of Noimoutier and its old harbour the « Bois de la Chaize » and its fine sand beaches, the fishermen's old villages, potato culture, the port of the Herbaudière, the salt marshes…
Day 3: L’île d’Yeu | 20 to 35 Km
Ile d’Yeu : sailor island, and Vendée’s southernmost island, appears under multiple aspects. Out Of these unforgettable places, we shall forever remember, the coves, caves, rocky points, trembling stones, golden beaches of the north coast and its magnificent white houses with blue shutters.
Day 4: Oyster-farming ports | 40 Km
Discovery of old small ports bustling with oyster farmers. When the tide is good, they come and go between their « huts » (sorts of sheds situated near the dikes) and the port. They drag a little boat behind their tractors and go to their oyster farms situated in the Bourgneuf bay.
