Island of Yeu

The island of Yeu, which became a permanent island around 5000 BC, concentrates in just 23 km2 a diversity of landscapes : long sandy beaches and dunes held with coniferous woods ; a wild coast with its proud cliffs, embracing golden sandy coves ; barren moors where sea thrifts shiver under the wind ; sunken roads crossing anticlinal valleys or skirting cliffs ; marsh and “bocage” countryside and its numerous parcels where houses with low tiled roofs and colourful shutters are snuggled behind the foliage of willows and sloe trees.

Known for a long time as the 1sttuna fishing port of the Atlantic coast, the island still has an active fishing sector. From the piers are discharged many fishes : sea bass, monk fish, hake, sole, turbot, sea bream and others, not forgetting different kinds of shellfish.
With its 5000 inhabitants, the island of Yeu stays a highly welcoming and alive island, strongly caught by this sea fever which impress all, and sea lovers, when stopping over, even if just for a day.
To plan your day, pay a visit to the Ile d'Yeu Tourist Office website.
Ferries depart daily from Fromentine (La Barre de Monts) just 8 km from the domain.
