Find the best fishing spots on La Vélodyssée

Watch for carrelets, iconic Atlantic coast fishing cabins 🎣

You are sure to see at least a few of the 200+ fishing cabins extending into the ocean as you cycle along La Vélodyssée! They are one of this coast’s most recognised features, as demonstrated by 60,000 or so photos shared on Instagram with #carrelet or #fishingcabin hashtags.

Explore fishing cabins on La Vélodyssée

In France, fishing cabins belong to private individuals or organisations. They are usually very basic, with no water or electricity. You can often rent them for a fishing expedition during one tide, but they do not come with accommodation.


  • Stay in a fishing cabin:

In Corsept, a town that is home to 37 fishing cabins along the Loire, Manoir de l’Espérance has built a traditional fishing cabin in the maritime pines to give you a unique place to stay! This Accueil Vélo partner is located just three kilometres from La Vélodyssée and can accommodate 4 people.
