La Trench sur Mer
On the Atlantic coast in the south of the Vendee lies the holiday Result of La-Trench-sur-Mer, Facing due south towards the Ile de Re the climate is one of the most favorable in the Vendee and with 8 kilometers of fine sandy beaches it is not hard to see why this is one of the most popular results in the Vendee.
The Narrow streets with their white painted houses give the town a Mediterranean feel, most of the year it is quiet but come July and August the streets and beaches are busy with the multitude of holiday makers.The evenings come alive with entertainments both shows and street artists.
La Tranch sur Mer is also a Mecca for water sports enthusiast, in particular the windsurfers and surfers and with the excellent nautical center the dingy sailors are also well catered for. There are many national and international events that are held here especially in windsurfing.
This very popular seaside resort originally known as 'Carvor' has been a active port over the centuries due to its protection from the Ile de Re. Today the port is more an anchorage for pleasure boats though during the season there are excursions by boat to and around the Ile-de-Re, Fort Boyard, L'ile d'Aix and La Rochelle from Mondays to Fridays

As one would expect of a popular holiday resort the needs of the inner man are well catered for with a varied selection of eateries from creperies, pizzerias, bistros and restaurants to snack bars and ice cream parlors. The shopping experience is also well covered with gifts and souvenirs to beach goods and cloths.
