what to do and see in Vielle Saint Girons

Vielle Saint Girons was created during the French Revolution by the merging of the parishes of Vielle and Saint Girons.

During your walk around the village of Saint Girons, stop in front of the colonne de sauveté, a stone pillar erected between the 11th and 12th centuries and a vestige of the town’s medieval heritage. Once a stopover on the pilgrimage to Saintiago de Compostella, the Sauveté de Saint Girons was a refuge for Catholic pilgrims taking the coastal route to Compostella via Bayonne.

The Courant d’Huchet, classified as a natural reserve, begins its route to the Atlantic Ocean near the town of Vielle. Its banks offer superb nature walks.

To relax and enjoy all the pleasures of the water, the four beaches of Vielle St Girons are open to all-comers. Choose according to your own preferences between the ocean beaches (Saint Girons Plage, Lette Blanche and the naturist beach at Arnoutchot) and the shallower, warmer water at the beach on Lake Léon in Vielle.
