THINGS TO DO

The Place de la République, a lively full-on market takes place in the summer every Tuesday, Friday and Sunday morning from 08:00 to 13:00. During winter, there is a market every Friday morning.
Here you can fill your basket with fresh produce, cheese, meats and seafood, along with goods and products from local artists.
The island of Noirmoutier has many diverse coastlines. You can discover surfing, windsurfing, kitesurfing, and sailing are top delights on the ocean side of the island. The harbor side of the island boasts calmer waters ideal for kayaking, and paddle boarding. Additionally, jet skis, snorkeling and diving are also available around island.
Noirmoutier is home to countless excursions and leisure activates, sure to fit everyone's wish list. Naturists will enjoy our many hiking and biking trails through woodlands, beaches, and salt marshes. Our multiple sea ports have many different types of boat tours from fishing excursions to sunset sailing. We also have a lovely sea bird sanctuary along the Alley Jacobsen, a sea life aquarium and family water park.
Idyllic Plage des Dames with its post card pier and beach huts is nestled at the edge of the Bois de la Chaize about 1 mile away from our property. Free bus service to and from the beach is available every 15 minutes just outside of our front door. It’s also a nice walk or bike ride! A little further westward you’ll find the Beach Sableaux. A most beautiful stretch of white sand ideal for families where beach and water activities abound. Closer to the ocean side are the stunning beaches of La Vieil and La Madeleine with sand and rock “marzelles” that shellfish gatherers adore.
Cultural & Natural Sites
The island has many great historical sites including the castle of Noirmoutier dating from the 9th century, the Saint-Philbert church, a former Benedictine abbey with a Romanesque and Gothic style and the first tomb of the monk Saint Philibert , its founder in the seventh century. Our island is also home to one of the few “land bridges” left in the world, accessible every day at low tide. Ideal for exploring the uncovered sea floor and bringing back buckets of clams!
"Fantastic value for money, the accommodation was exemplary. Incredibly clean, comfortable with an amazing relaxed vibe. Diane and Raphael are wonderful hosts, their dog and cats only add to the charm of the place. 10 out of 10 for all the usual things you'd expect but we'd give extra marks for all the finer details they delivered. Merci beaucoup."
"Raphael and Diane are really great. We loved our stay at home. The always nice breakfasts, especially on the terrace! The bedding XXL and the comfort of the room ... so great and perfect!"
Diane and Raphael welcomed us warmly and we immediately felt at ease in their pretty house (as in the photos). The rooms are perfect with king size beds and impeccable cleanliness !! In short, an address that I keep preciously. We also loved their "pets" :-)"
