Overview

Parc highlights

Here, in the heart of Côte de Lumière, French living reaches its sublime and stylish best.

Le Château d’Olonne, your charming resort, is comfortably close to the lively seaside town of Les Sables d’Olonne. Here, you’ll discover a picturesque old quarter, filled with pedestrian alleys and façades decorated with shells, as well as the La Chaume quarter, where the city originated. Or dip into the fishermen’s district, and the delicious food market where you shop for the freshest fish, for dinner at your place. The historical theme park, Le Grand Parc du Puy du Fou is also just 92km away. Located in the Vendée, a region famous for its long sandy beaches, close to Les Sables d’Olonne, Residence L’Estran is a hotel and resort located between the Puits d’Enfer, a deep cleft in the cliff into which the sea comes crashing at high tide, and the town centre. The swimming pool faces the sea and the sandy beaches are just 2km away. When its time to get active, why not practice your swing with a spot of golf or dive into water sports?

Two districts well worth seeing: firstly, the Ile de Penotte, a picturesque old quarter in the town centre with pedestrian alleys and façades decorated with shells by a local artist. Secondly, the La Chaume quarter, where the city originated: the fishermen’s district, with the Place Sainte Anne and its magnificent trompe l’œil fresco. Many noteworthy monuments, such as the 'Halles Centrales', now home to the food market, Notre-Dame de Bon Port Church, and St Nicolas’ Priory, today a venue for meetings and cultural events. A number of museums: 'Musée de l’Abbaye de Sainte Croix' (collection of modern and contemporary French art), 'Musée de la Mer' and the 'Musée du Coquillage': unique of its kind in Europe, with its 35,000 tropical shells, corals and shellfish). The 'Jardin des Salines': a protected site retracing the history of salt over the ages, where you can watch wading birds nesting in the marshes. The surrounding area: Excursion to Yeu island leaving from les Sables d'Olonnes (90 min away by boat) in July and August and from Fromentine (70 km away the other month. Sea trips leaving from Fromentine (69 km): excursions to the Ile d’Yeu by catamaran or trawler. 'Musée de l’Automobile' in Talmont St Hilaire (12 km): 150 vehicles from 1885 to prototypes of the future. Bird observatory on the Ile d’Olonne. The Olonne-sur-Mer marshes, formed long ago when the gulf silted up. Used for breeding fish and oysters (over 4,500 hectares of earth and water strips), and is also a real bird reserve.
