Discover “la Corniche Vendéenne” !
Thanks to a recent redevelopment, the Corniche Vendéenne is a very beautiful hike to do as a couple, with friends or with your children. It will reveal three kilometers of rugged rocky coast of Saint Gilles Croix de Vie in the Sion district of Saint Hilaire de Riez, as well as a unique view of the cliffs and the many rocks.
Going along the Corniche de Sion to the north, you will be able to observe the “devil’s hole”, a rocky cavity in which the waves rush at a rising tide, which makes a breathtaking sight appear! Legend has it that the devil gave a heel strike to this place on the cliff, disappointed to have lost his market with Saint Martin (legend of Pont d’Yeu).
From Sion on the ocean towards Saint Hilaire de Riez, you will discover the “five pineaux”. It is an alignment of 5 rocks facing the ocean.
