La Chaume, a neighbourhood with character
La Chaume, today a neighbourhood of Les Sables d’Olonne, shelters its history in the little streets that wander across this old village of fishermen and market gardeners. La Chaume is actually the cradle of the city, since It was founded centuries before Les Sables. Originally, it was a rock on an island (Île Vertime) that was linked with the
mainland in the Middle Ages following deposits of clayey mud that filled the Olonne bay.
La Chaume remains largely separated from the seaside town by the port approach channel.
Relaxation and serenity
La Chaume is a quiet and peaceful stop, away from the frenetic rhythm of the “Remblai” An ideal place for a few days away from the bustle of big cities.
