Do you fancy spending an active holiday in the Vendée, just the two of you, or with family and friends? Slip on your hiking boots and explore the Fautois trail, one of the most beautiful natural sites on the pointe d’Arçay headland.
There are 13 km of hiking trails leading past ocean and forests
After a relaxing day in our aquatic area with heated pool and a generous breakfast on the terrace of your luxury mobile home at La Faute-sur-Mer, it’s time for some exercise. With its 13 km of hiking paths the Fautois trail is the ideal setting to increase your oxygen levels while admiring the beautiful surrounding landscapes. Explore the national forest, located a stone’s throw from La Tranche-sur-Mer, between the Atlantic ocean and the Lay river. Keep pace with the river’s lazy current and enjoy a beautiful walk under the shade of the maritime pines. There are eight routes, depending on your preference, leading through the dunes, along the beach or the river. The Fautois trail, which is suitable for children, has been designed for occasional walkers as well as serious hikers. Take a tour of the peninsula, passing through alternating patches of deep forest and stunning open views of the ocean and dunes, a magnificent contrast that highlights the diversity of the natural environment, giving you greater insight into the unique character of the Casse de la Belle-Henriette National Nature Reserve
