Le Hâble d’Ault
During the Middle Ages, this area located between land and sea was a famous port. This is why the origin of hâble comes from the word hâvre, which means port. Over the years, the body of water was separated from the sea by a dike in order, in particular, to protect the dwellings from bad weather due to the proximity of the sea. Nowadays, the Hâble d’Ault constitutes a unique site in France. This avifauna reserve is protected by a bead of pebbles, which allows 270 species of birds to find refuge in this wetland.
