    Great if lucky to watch the local fishermen using their special cabins. Most unusual and rewarding. Good chance of great photos

    This concrete edifice can be seen as you arrive in Royan almost dominating the skyline. It looks like some bizarre water tower or a weird block of contemporary flats. Better inside than out with some impressive stained glass work. I think it is permanently losing concrete and cement but is worth a visit.

    Royan market is a must if your in the area. There were loads of wonderful food stalls catering for lots of tastes. Local seafood, cheese and salads/vegetables/fruit were all on show. Our
    Daughter was amazed at the array of food and it was a great way to introduce her to French cuisine.
    Parking was available on site though not sure that will be the case next week (3rd week of July) when the holiday season really starts here.

    Superb naturist beaches. Great surf! Take care as the undercurrent is powerful.
    The dunes are popular with the LGBT folks. The beaches are a mix of nudes and textiles.

    Great place for history and exploring with the kids and having a picnic. Be cautious, the grass is long and there are snakes basking.

    Certainly worth checking out if you're not to familiar with the area. Some great suggestions for the attraction of the Charente region.

    My husband and I attended the winery tour and tasting. We booked online easily. The host, Laurent, presented the tour in French and English. He was well informed and easy going. We learned about the history and production of the local specialty, Pineau, and viewed the aging barrel rooms and the distillation tanks. We then tasted 3 Pineaus and 2 cognacs in the retail sales room. This part was fun, delicious and very educational. We would recommend this visit highly. It took 1 hour in total.

    We rented the Isis static home for the first time this year, having visited the site on two previous occasions with our own caravan. We were not disappointed. Everything was spotlessly clean and the accommodation had everything we needed, including a dishwasher and washing machine. The king size bed was extremely large (larger than our own king size at home) and very very comfortable.
    The site was immaculately kept and very quiet and peaceful, only the birdsong and frogs calling. We love it here and would definitely recommend it.
    Straight on to the cycle paths immediately outside the site, where you can go either way, to Royan and beyond, or La Palmyre/Les Mathes.
    Thank you for making our stay so enjoyable.

    Sometimes a friendly owner will let you experience this fanciest of beach huts! Some are now refurbished in a modern looking way. I don't whether this is for a little fancy privacy and not the traditional sea fishing. I've never seen anybody catch anything but perhaps I've been there at the wrong time.

    Signed up for the poker cash game.. It was good fun.

    No drink holder at poker table though. That an onion in the ointment.

    Free to enter.. They are not to strict about dress code.. I got in with shorts and slippers..

    I enjoyed myself.. Would recommend

    We were there in middle of heatwave and this proved to be a nice shady walk through the woods with activities for grand children (aged 4 & 8). Pictures of local landmarks positioned along the way interesting for both young and old alike. Nice tea room with lovely views of the bay. Exhibition and observation tower with panoramic view. No entrance fee for the woodland walk.

    Over a kilometre of beach. Gently shelving sands ideal for youngsters. Beautiful maintained and free of litter. Good on street parking adjacent to the beach. Toilets and catering facilities available at intervals along the promenade.

    Many French tourist offices are not very helpful but this is an exception. The staff speak several languages including English. They are knowledgeable about Royan and helpful. You can obtain a free good street plan of the town. Situated in centre of town across from the Post Office. If you are new to the town then you really should pay the tourist office a visit.

    A tiny sushi takeaway store with bags of flavour! The proprietor, (also a fireman) is a real character and speaks good English. The sushi is delicious. What a find! French tip: chopsticks are called baguettes in France.

    It's a ferry. Runs all year but more frequently in summer months. Single tickets only. We have only done as foot passengers. Journey takes about 40 minutes. Also has a cafe. Worth a trip which ever side you are on.
