The area around LPO has considerable interest for Birdwatchers. The salt marshes and coastline regions are particularly rich in their diversity of bird species. The Ile de Noirmoutier and its cycle paths provide delightful bird watching areas and is within a reasonable driving distance. There are mudflats and disused saltpans where waders and terns breed. Amongst the species to be seen are Harriers, Owls, Black Kites, Hoopoes, Terns and Bluethroat.
The holiday site itself has other interesting species of birds including singing nightingales and turtle doves in summer. Kingfishers and a family of long eared owls, if present, may be seen or heard sometimes.
