Additional Location Information
Saint Gilles Croix de Vie is a boating centre as well as a great, sandy, seaside resort, full of interesting shops and markets in a pedestrian area. The large working port is interesting and the sardines are famous! The pleasure port has over a thousand boats. The centre of town is busy all year round, with many festivals : a jazz festival, sailing festival even an onion festival, and the Casino. At the mouth of the river Vie, which is the river which separates St Gilles and Croix de Vie, you can go and visit the restored salt marshes and also visit the thatched cottage of Bois Juquaud which is a museum of a local traditional house from the turn of the last century.
Nearby is the little town called Commequiers which has a fun mode of transport : the bike train! to enjoy the local countryside. You can go as far as the old castle and the standing stone Pierres Folles. Coex has a lovely floral park called "the olfactory garden" where you can discover the magic of flowers and their smells. Nearby in l'Aiguillon-sur-Vie there are some good painters and the Fontenelles golf course. In la Chaise-Giraud you can visit the 12th century church where there are good classical music concerts.
As you go north from St Gilles towards Sion sur l'Ocean you follow the rocky coastline called the Corniche Vendeenne and there are nice views of the rocks at the "devils hole" and the famous St Hilaire de Riez miles of sandy beaches, lined with sand dunes and maritime pine forest.
