About the neighbourhood
There is an excellent zoo at La Palmyre, also a good golf course. The island of Oleron is just a few minutes' drive with cycle tracks and all water sports. La Rochelle is probably the most famous town in this area, along with Fort Boyard where the TV games are held. The Roman town of Saintes is well worth a visit (stunning amphitheatre among other things) and the old military town of Rochefort with its famous fortifications is nearby. Royan is a relatively new town, having been blitzed during World War II, but nonetheless boasts miles of sandy beach and lots of restaurants. Visit the markets, chateaux, picturesque rivers, taste the local wines and eat at a wealth of seafood restaurants. Sporting opportunities are also abundant with cycling, golf, diving and other water sports. Swimming ...
How to get there
Airport at La Rochelle with often very cheap flights with Ryan Air and FlyBe. We will supply directions in good time.
