Things to do

You can be as lazy or as active as you wish here in the Charente Maritime.  The area benefits from a micro-climate ensuring lots of sunshine every year. 

There area beautiful sandy beaches just a ten minute drive away. The closest being Plage des Nonnes, Plages des Vergnes and Plages de Suzac at Meschers, then the wide expanses of sand at St Georges de Didonne and Royan.  Past Royan are more cove like beaches at Pontaillac and St Palais.  All the beaches offer a variety of watersports including sailing, sand-yachting, jet bikes at Royan, and great surfing at Pontaillac or even better at the enormous and beautiful Cotes Sauvage.

The towns of Bordeaux,  Royan, Cognac and La Rochelle are all definitely worth a visit..

There are superb golf courses at Royan, La Palmyre, Cognac, Saintes and La Rochelle, all of which are within easy reach.

For those who like walking and cycling there are endless opportunities amongst the surrounding countryside.

Being so close to probably the most famous wine region in the world, a visit to the chateaux of the Medoc, including Margaux and Lafite, is a must.

Or of course you can do nothing more than relax by the pool! Our useful links page has more information about all the things you can do in the Charente Maritime, but feel free to contact us with any questions you have.
