La Tranche-sur-Mer - Tourism, holidays & weekends guide in the Vendée
8.0
7

Far from the concrete embankments, La Tranche-sur-Mer is a seaside resort that does not lack character! With its 13 km of sandy beaches, the "little California" nicknamed for its exceptional sunshine, has retained an authentic and family spirit. In summer, the resort lives to the rhythm of summer vacationers. Free concerts in the streets, terraces of bustling restaurants, discovery of sliding sports, the sun awakens the summer side of La Tranche-sur-Mer. Spring, autumn and winter, it is a much more intimate face that offers us the station. Nature is queen, the weather is mild and ideal for beautiful walks...
