Enjoy your stay at the campsite for a walk

From Saint Gilles Croix de Vie to the Sion district of Saint Hilaire de Riez, the Vendée Corniche reveals three kilometers of rugged rocky coast where the shores of an old island are still visible. Over the centuries, the arm of the sea that separated the continent of this ancient island, the island of Rié, was gradually filled by marine deposits.

Recently converted, the Corniche Vendéenne is a beautiful hike to do as a couple, with friends or with your children. It offers a unique view of the cliffs and the many rocks.

In the South, facing the tip of the Grosse terre, you can observe the “Pilours”, an elongated rock remaining apparent at high tide. Then, along the Corniche to the North, you will meet a cave called “Devil’s Hole”. This cavity is also called the devil’s pot because the water boils there like in a cauldron and a schist arch, appearing the handle, overhangs it.

At the end of the cliffs of Sion, you can observe five isolated rocks facing the sea, they are called “Five Pineaux”.
