Run and while you breathe in the sea air and cleanse your lungs you can marvel at the 360° view in Pays de Saint Jean de Monts.

Keep your tours of local roads and housing estates for when you go home because whilst you’re on holiday, you’ll be jogging on the beach, the promenades and on pathways through the pines. Jogging here has many benefits. The sand is loose and soft which means the muscles in your lower limbs have to work harder and so your heart does too. You will use more energy and so increase the potential for weight loss. The ultimate challenge is to run in the sea which requires twice as much energy than a normal run and so is twice as effective.

Run, breath in the pure air and make the most of the signed routes and pathways of the Pays de Saint Jean de Monts, which has the first recognised centre on the Atlantic coast.
