Port Bourgenay a purpose built holiday resort just 5 kilometes from Talmont St. Hilaire
has a delightful modern marina, a golf course and the great beach of
Veillon, these are just some of the delights that are on offer. It is on
the north side of the Payre River, has a relaxing atmosphere and as it
has not been found by the hoards of holiday makers that can normally
ruin such places.
There are a few cafes and restaurants to cater for those that do look it
up. The deep water marina is very modern and modest in size
catering for the local sports fishermen and yachtsmen and there are
chandleries and workshops for them.
The Beach at Veillon
is one of the prettiest in the Vendee and if you are thinking of
visiting it in the holiday season you are advised to arrive early as
parking near the beach is limited so you may have a long walk. A walk
over the dunes or along the beach to the Payre river, especially at low
tide, will reward you with possibly the finest scenery in this part of
The beach has survellance during the season and there are refreshments available including a beach restaurant.
The golf course
designed by P.Thevenin overlooks the marina of port Bourgenay, bordered
by a pine forest on the very edge of the sea. The 85 hectare course has
alternative pine forest and hedgerows giving two differing experiences.
The cliff top walk north from the Marina towards Les
Sables-d'Olonne takes in some of the most rugged coastline in the
Restaurants at Port Bourgenay & Talmont St. Hilaire.
