Take a walk along the quaysides immortalised by Turner or Pissaro, stroll the famous Saturday morning market which was recently crowned the 8th most beautiful of its kind in the whole country, venture up to the old castle overlooking the rooftops or explore the narrow lanes ofLe Pollet before making your way up to the Bonsecours Chapel, built in 1876 in memory of sailors lost at sea.

You’ll discover a town unlike any other, which has managed to stay remarkably simple and delightfully unpretentious and whose heart beats all year round, thanks to a rich and varied economy and numerous cultural activities.

A town turned towards the sea but surrounded by lush green countryside, where you can explore charming coastal villages.
