Set sails and explore these three little heavens for sailors: Aix, Oléron and Ré island.
A new idea for your sailing holidays? Atlantic Coast and Oléron Island : stop in the old harbour with its two huge towers and stroll around the alleys and the typical little houses of the picturesque ancient city.
La Rochelle is quiet but also lively and dynamic with its many festivals, restaurants, shops and events such as the Grand Pavois, that hosts one of the most famous boat show of Europe.
A few miles North there’s the lively city of Sable d’Olonne with one of the most interesting marinas of France. Here you can admire the high-tech boats that participate in the hardest high-sea regatta in the world: the famous Vendee du Globe.
Come back on board and sail enjoying the breeze of the ocean until you reach one of the little and quiet beaches of Yeu Island.
