Daily life in Chateau d'Olonne

Chateau d'Olonne and Les Sables d'Olonne are so closely linked, both physically and metaphorically, that they share amenities.

In addition there are schools, medical facilities like doctors, dentists and pharmacies and also all essential services. As the town is a popular tourist destination too, you'll also find lots to do, especially in the summer.

Cultural and natural heritage on offer

Although the town isn't particularly renowned for its historical monuments, there are some buildings worth seeing if you're interested in history and heritage. These include the residence of Fenestreau, the town's Church of Saint Hilaire and some remains of a Benedictine abbey. The natural heritage, however, is a knockout. From woodland trails to rocky coves and lovely beaches, this is a paradise for walkers.

If you've chosen to buy property or to holiday in this area, it probably goes without saying that you will want to spend time at the seaside. And of course, that's so easy here.

The beaches are family friendly, and the resort offers activities such as water sports, tennis, children's play areas and more. Adults and families are also able to choose from a wide variety of bars and restaurants to enhance the whole experience. The local cuisine is tasty and offers excellent seafood, and the region is also known for its fine grade sea salt.

Visit the Puy de Fou theme park and enjoy cultural Nantes

If you're looking for places to visit nearby, you'll find more than enough. The city of Nantes is a wonderful place to spend a day exploring the heritage and culture, and offers wonderful shopping too.

Property prices and availability in and around Chateau d'Olonne
