Located along the Cote Lumière on the Atlantic in the Vendee region of Loire, the small village of Talmont-Saint-Hilaire lies along some of the most beautiful and unspoiled coastal regions of western France, with some of the areas’ best beaches including Le Veillon. With over ten miles of craggy cliffs, sheltered coves and marshlands, and long stretches of sandy beaches backed by forests, the area’s great natural beauty has been declared a NATURA 2000 protection zone of great biodiversity.
Explore the 11th century Chateau de Talmont with its extensive fortifications and fascinating ancient history. Part of the region renowned for its seafood, you can visit the covered market in town for some of the best oysters as well as local products.
Just minutes from the bustling seaside resort of Sables-d’Olonne, the town’s promenade is lined with shops and cafés, a long sandy beach, and a large marina which is home to the Vendée Globe, the famous single-handed, round-the-world yacht race.
A half hour south is La Tranche sur Mer where you can launch day trips offshore to L’Ile-d’Yeu and Noirmoutier. The ancient harbor city of La Rochelle (known as the “White City”) lies just over an hour to the south and was one of the most important trade routes and ports and now features a modern marina as well as Renaissance history.
