Occupying the western part of the Arvert peninsula, La Tremblade is linked to the ocean and the state forest of La Coubre. Its name remains mysterious, even if several hypotheses have been put forward: the marsh fever that made the inhabitants tremble, the old name of the commune cited by Claude Masse in the 17th century "La Damblade", the aspens - trees that seem to tremble in the wind -, or the fish brought in by the fishermen in their nets. One thing is certain, La Tremblade and its 20 kilometres of fine sand attract many holidaymakers. Families particularly appreciate the Mus de Loup, the Galon d'Or or the Embellie; surfers can enjoy a few moments of pleasure on the breakers of the Côte sauvage. Each of these beaches is accessible either by road or by a cycle track winding through the fragrant pine forest. Further north, sailors fear the entrance to the Maumusson channel and its powerful currents. Sadly famous, the place has been the scene of many shipwrecks. The station of La Tremblade offers travellers the chance to ride on the oldest steam locomotive in France! On the banks of the Seudre, you will reach one of the most beautiful villages in France: Mornac-sur-Seudre. The northern district of La Tremblade, Ronce-les-bains, has a special place. It became a seaside resort in 1860 and has been welcoming tourists since 1876 with the opening of the Saujon-La Tremblade railway line. Its sheltered beaches, protected by the island of Oléron, make it a paradise for bathers. The players will get closer to the casino inaugurated in 2007.
