Les Sables-d’Olonne’s historical sports complex, the Rudelière site enjoys an extraordinary location and natural setting, surrounded by pine trees, in immediate proximity to the beach. Its access routes, parking options and bicycle and walking trails are of particularly high quality. This facilitates non-motorised modes of transport and access to the different facilities. The stadium, Stade de la Rudelière, is the centre of gravity for the complex, around which are the Tennis Club Sablais and the Aqualonne aquatic centre, allowing many sportsmen and sportswomen to train under the best possible conditions.
Hôtel Côte Ouest is located on the grounds of the complex. It is accustomed to receiving top sportsmen and sportswomen who will then have easy access on foot to the stadium, the tennis courts and the beach. The hotel’s amenities include a weight room, a swimming pool and a cryotherapy centre to boost the body’s recuperation.
The stadium also has its own weights room.
