7 Havre de la Gachère, Historical port
At the beginning of our era, the territory occupied by the marshes was covered by the sea. It was the Gulf of Olonne, separated from the ocean by the Isle Vertime (covered today by the forest of Olonne).
Under the Roman Empire, Olonne became an important crossroads thanks to its small harbor 'Le Havre d'Olonne' located at the bottom of a bay well sheltered by the long Isle Vertime (current wild coast and forest of Olonne). The creation of the salt marshes and the vineyards on the Island of Olonne date from this time and will make the richness of this region for 2000 years.
This gulf then transformed into a harbor, pisi into 2 basins separated by the butte de la Bauduère which were gradually filled: these are the current marshes of the Gachère in the north and basin of the Hunts in the south. These two basins are now connected by the Canal de la Bauduère. They receive the water from the rivers Auzance and Vertonne, while communicating, thanks to the locks, with the sea from which they undergo the tides. The line of the shore has changed. The island Vertime will become a peninsula.
8 Forêt Domaniale d'Olonne, History and fauna & flora

The existence of the classified forest of Olonne is recent. During the reign of Louis XV, some individuals plant seedlings of maritime pines on the dunes. But it was the State, by the Ponts-et-Chaussées, which, from 1836, was busy installing a forest environment near the coast. The objective is to stabilize the dune cord sufficiently to make it a natural barrier against the ocean, protecting neighboring dwellings.
The wooded dune contains the forest itself and extends over nearly 1200 hectares (2 km wide by 9 km long). The state is the almost exclusive owner. Since 1966 he delegates the management to the National Office of Forests which defends the principle of inconstructibility.

Fauna and Flora:

Maritime pine is the dominant species alongside holm oaks, black locust trees, maples, ash trees and elms.
The undergrowth consists mainly of rosebushes, seals of Solomon, orchids ...
There are also many species of mushrooms such as boletus, morels, but also phalloids and citrines.
Among the most remarkable animal species, one can have the chance to see deer, wild boars, foxes, red partridges, pigeons, turtledoves.

Numerous picnic areas.
A bike path 'Vendée Vélo' connects Brem sur Mer to the Sables d'Olonne (17km).
The Grande Randonnée GR 8 trail (signposted white and red) crosses the forest and extends to the Pays de St Gilles via the lock.
At the place called "Mireille", reforestation of young green pines in tight and parallel rows.
Farther north, irregular old forest: groves of holm oaks, medlars, wild cormiers, blackthorns, hawthorns, tamaris, willows, acacias, etc.
In the center of the forest: large acacias, alders, ash trees, poplars, beeches, birches, elders, maples, etc.

Firebreaks form large unexpected straight trenches. There are deer, wild boars, squirrels; Among birds: ravens or magpies, wooden pigeons, jays, blackbirds, passerines, etc. Green or gray lizards - Take the vipers station.

Enjoy the marked trails to discover the national forest, on foot or by bike!

19 Salt marshes, history
* Image of salt in time:

Currently salt is a common mineral. Previously it was linked to the sacred, to magic, as well as to medicine and popular beliefs. It is only in recent years that its role has diminished in the diet and that its symbolism gradually disappears.

* The salt-pans at their beginnings:

The first salt-works date back to the Gallo-Roman period, and it was during the Middle Ages and until the 19th century that they were fully developed. The salt, white gold, is at the very origin of the village of sauniers that is the Island of Olonne. Most marshes have become fish marshes for eel and mule breeding.

* The Vendée marshes:

Formerly, very important in the northwest of the Vendée, saliculture, or cultivation of salt, now represents only a few jobs. In the 1980s, salt production in the Vendée marshes seemed to be wasting and destined to be abandoned; The joint efforts of the department of the Vendée and the coopérative aquasel, from 1992, have made it possible to rehabilitate the farms and to redevelop this economy.

* And today ?

Seven salt marshes are still in operation today. The saltworkers will be pleased to welcome you: in the Salines, 4 marshes are in operation at the Sables d'Olonne (marshes of the Aubraie) and 3 salt marshes on the Island of Olonne (marshes with beans, marshes Avocettes and marsh Rivolia ).
The Vendée sausiers now produce quality salt and export it to Canada and the Nordic countries. They also sell part of their harvest to salted the hams of Vendée. The salt marshes now attract a large number of tourists who discover this upgraded profession.

Do not be influenced by the denomination!
Here is a nectar that should be discovered "blindly". First let the fruity aromas of the soil of Brémois rise, then, find in the mouth the freshness of the undergrowth after a summer storm.
The "Trousseminette" is authenticity in its purest form, like the warm character who gave it life by taking inspiration from the alchemical dosage kept as a secret in a few farms in Vendée. Now, open your eyes to the elegance of this bottle to rank among the 'must'. Find in our cellar the wines of Brem, Mareuil, Vix, Chantonnay. Tasting in the vineyards (by appointment).

Open all year round: 7 days / 7, 10 am to 8 pm, all year round.
