ST PALAIS SUR MER Le Puits de l’Auture

Vendee & Charente

Selected because easy access to Atlantic beaches and a quiet atmosphere are the unique attributes of this site just outside Royan. Situated opposite a small beach that disappears at high tide, and 300m from the famous Grande Côte, another huge stretch of beautiful safe sandy beach. It is a quiet site with no organised entertainment but is easy walking distance of bars and restaurants. Access to the beaches more than compensates for the lack of swimming pool. You can enjoy stunning sunsets on the beach opposite with the famous oyster nets as a backdrop.
