Province : Arvert Peninsula and the Beauty Coast

  • English
    • First seaside resort in the 19th century, then that of the first paid holidays in 1936, Royan seduces with its beautiful sandy beaches in the hollow of conches and its forests of maritime pines and holm oaks. If a few villas still bear witness to the Belle Epoque, the city was completely destroyed during the Second World War and rebuilt in the 1950s. Palais des Congrès, Notre Dame church, central market, seafront were designed by great architects having makes concrete their reputation.
      10 minutes from the city, the Jardins du monde, located in the heart of the Pousseau marsh, invites you to take a tour of the landscape and horticultural world and contribute to the preservation of this urban marsh.
      From the coast one can admire on a rocky island, the Cordouan lighthouse, 68m high lookout. Listed as a historic monument, it is the oldest lighthouse in France.
