Quaint little fishing village with a past. Mixture of old and new. The church where Louis 14th married is very special. Lots of shops and bars. Relaxing ambience. Nice beach

A small old fishing port, a real beauty with many old type fishing boats. Right in the heart of the town. Local artists stands, cafés and restaurants. Worth a visit.
