Boudin planted his easel and painted beach scenes peopled with wealthy visitors. The sea in the countryside or the countryside to the sea. This is what best defines this beautiful corner of the Côte Fleurie that some call the "Queen of Beaches". Built in 1935 "the fish market" is an emblematic place.
