Noirmoutier-en-l'Île : Michelin's recommendations
This white capital of the Ile is spread out parallel to a port-canal from where the sea retreats to low marshland. Its Grande-Rue is 1km long and ends at Place d'Armes overlooking the port. Castle, abbey, historical event (execution of the defeated hero of Cholet, Vendée General d'Elbée)... and kilometres of promenades among the pine trees, holm oak and mimosas that serve as a good introduction to life in this part of the world.
