About the neighbourhood
The nearest beautiful sandy beach is Meschers (28km) about 20-25 minutes drive away. Between here and Royan (35km) the estuary is lined with more superb sandy beaches, both lifeguard protected and more secluded sandy coves. Parking is plentiful and free to provide easy access on foot to the beaches themselves. For surfers this is the Atlantic coast with renown surfing beaches from Cote Sauvage to the north and Soulac on the other side of the Gironde. Water sports abound on the coast. Local villages regularly have markets selling local produce and brocantes during the summer season.Nearby, Port Maubert has a restaurant and walk down to the edge of the estuary. Vitrezay nature reserve is a marvellous day out. Paths lead out into the marais through the wetlands with observation hides. It has... more
