La Baie du Chapus
Dates & opening times
Le Vieux Chapus, a village of fishermen and oyster farmers, with low-slung houses and narrow streets lined with hollyhocks. The toponymy of the streets in Vieux Chapus evokes the seafaring activities of the time: rue des mousses, rue et place des pilotes, rue du vieux port, rue des pêcheurs...
Originally, at the far end of the bay of Le Chapus, was the old port dating back to the Middle Ages, with its restored quay used for salt trading and fishing.
Today, the bay is still used for oyster farming, with the Daire channel and its picturesque huts to the north.
The maze of narrow streets of Vieux Chapus invites you to discover this typical district, with its wells nestling between two alleyways, decorated with hollyhocks.
