Situated on the edge of the marshes, on the banks of the Acheneau and on the Nantes/Paimboeuf route, Cheix-en-Retz is a pretty little village in the hinterland, a confidential place, far from mass tourism.
Every day, the locals savour the peace and beauty of the surrounding countryside.
On the banks of the Acheneau, discover an emblematic and mysterious place : the trembling stone. This slab is balanced on several other rocks and bears 3 legends... The whole family can play at trying to make it shake...

Fishing enthusiasts will love the Acheneau, a fish-filled river in an idyllic setting perfectly suited to angling.
