Les Moutiers-en-Retz

Les Moutiers-en-Retz, the southernmost town on the Loire-Atlantique littoral, is located a few kilometers from our Vendean neighbors.
Les Moutiers-en-Retz, a small, quiet, family-friendly commune in the Loire-Atlantique region, offers visitors a complete change of scenery, combining "the sea with the countryside". You'll be seduced by its gentle lifestyle and authenticity.

Whatever the season, you'll find 6 kilometers of natural beaches ideal for water sports, walking and swimming. Take a stroll through the charming village square and narrow streets.

In summer, the market is colorful and well-stocked! There are many traditional markets and farmers' markets to discover in Destination Pornic!
Have you ever tasted good things? Then welcome to Les Moutiers and enjoy the creamy ice creams of Délices de l'Air marin, spice up your dishes with the white gold of our salt marshes, discover winegrowing estate and, last but not least, share a convivial moment at Poskaï's, a fish smoker from father to son, to taste oysters and smoked fish!

Les Moutiers-en-Retz also boasts a surprisingly rich historical heritage: admire the majestic Baroque altarpiece in Saint Pierre church and the mysterious "Death lantern", the only one still in operation in the Loire-Atlantique region. Stop off at the Prigny chapel, dominating the bay from its bell tower.

Nature lovers will be delighted to stroll through the Lyarne marsh (northern part of the Marais Breton Vendéen) or the vine-planted hillside, on foot, by bike or on horseback...
