La Tranche-sur-Mer - Tourism, holidays & weekends guide in the Vendée

Is it because she is facing the Ile de Ré or because, surrounded by marshes, it has long been isolated? Tranche preserves and cultivates its insular character. We find the charm of low houses with white walls and red tiled roofs, you get lost in the narrow cobbled streets that intertwine eventually converge to the Grand Place in the center of village.
