La Chaume has its own character with many old, fishermen’s cottages and very narrow streets – it even has its very own Ormeau Road, which is also the name of a main thoroughfare in Belfast.
It seems that there are no restaurants on “the front” of Les Sables d’Olonne, overlooking the sea and the principal bay, other than lunchtime cafés. The marina itself, Port Olona, has a number of decent restaurants and bars. There is a satisfactory hotel (L’Admiral) at the marina which has served as our base.
We had enjoyed our visits to Les Sables d’Olonne and were going to be a little sad to leave and not be returning for sometime. However, there was also excitement in the air.
