About the neighbourhood
The nearest beaches are 15-20 minutes up the coast at Meschers. These are small coves with safe sandy beaches. Another 5 minutes further up are the huge sweeping beaches of St George and Royan, each with lots of space and some watersports and full safety patrols. North of Royan is the Grand Cote - several miles of sandy beaches with some local beach patrols. Finally a little further (say 40 minutes from La Flotte) is the Cote Sauvage, again good sandy beaches.
How to get there
We are situated less than a mile inland from the harbour village of Mortagne sur Gironde which is on the Gironde estuary about 18 miles south of Royan (at the mouth of the estuary).

The nearest two airports are Bordeaux and La Rochelle, both equal distance from La Flotte - Bordeaux to the south and La Rochelle to the north. La Flotte is easily reached from both airports via the A10 autoroute; travel time about one hour. Use of a car is necessary to reach La Flotte. car hire is very easy and relatively inexpensive, especially for small cars available at both airports. The budget airlines all offer special dea...
