Les Sables d'Olonne

The background to our twin town

Situated on the west coast of France and the home of the single handed yacht race, the Vendée Globe, this is one of the most varied and fascinating seaside resorts you could ever want to explore.

From an extended walk along the truly splendid promenade which overlooks the extensive sands to a  meander through the delightful side streets before heading off to the port and a quayside which houses a vast range of restaurants. You will love your visit here.

Prior to a march through the town with eight international twinned groups in local costume, WTA made an effort dressed as a version of Morris Dancers and a great day was had by all!
