Camping near Les Sables d’Olonne
PRESENTATION OF LES SABLES D’OLONNE
Located on the Coast of Light, Les Sables d’Olonne is the largest seaside resort, with a year-round population of more than 44,000 residents. It boasts plenty of cafés and restaurants, a casino, three active ports, a spa, lots of hotels and kilometres of beaches. Les Sables d’Olonne is also the starting point for the Vendée Globe boat race, which takes place every four years.
The town was only founded in 1218, when it expanded thanks to the port’s activity trading salt, wine and cereals, followed by fishing later on. In 1754, the towns of Les Sables d’Olonne and Chaume merged. In 1866, the railway began bringing in the first tourists. Tourism developed thanks to the recent institution of paid leave and then blossomed again in the 1950s.
Nowadays, the economy of Les Sables d’Olonne focuses on fishing and tourism. Holidaymakers are attracted by its diverse natural environment of beaches, marshes and forest, and by the many activities for adults and children to enjoy.
