A very old village, Sallertaine was built on a limestone islet, once surrounded by salt marshes (the "marais salants" which gave its name to the commune).
The Sallertaine site has 30 pitches and motorhome drivers will benefit of its 32 electric outlets (6A).
The 12th century Church overlooking the marshes is one of the jewels of the Romanesque art.
Land of inspiration for writers (for example Bazin), Sallertaine and its 2 800 inhabitants are waiting for you! Discover the richness of this place on foot (by its many trails) or by boat (on the canals).
Sallertaine has the label « Ville et métiers d’Art » (City and trades of art), thus, around forty craftsmen are present in the village during July and August. Each year, the association "L'Ile aux Artisans" (Island for craftsmen) organizes 4 summer nights with artisan workshops, street art, shows, concerts, foods. Make sure to come and visit!
Places and monuments to be seen:
• The 12th Century Saint Martin's church, jewel of the northwest architectural heritage, it is a wonder of the Romanesque art.
