The sea was once sovereignty over almost the full range of Moutiers.

Over the centuries, this "empire" has fallen to the city monastérienne what it is today: the real harmony between the blue and green, the sea and land.

Monastériens or holiday, the varied pleasures available to you:

Sea side, you will taste the joys of fishing on foot on the foreshore; Enjoy the beach and swimming between the ears of wood you will sail in the Bay of Bourgneuf and dock at the port collar (small Chinese port) .

On land, you will discover the marsh, a refuge for many plant and animal species, you will discover the historical heritage by visiting the church (with its altarpiece classified, his ex-voto ...), the lantern of the dead, the only works in France today, and many others ... You can stroll the ruins as you wish to discover or rediscover the unique character of Moutiers-en-Retz.
