Situated on the Atlantic coast Royan offers beautiful beaches with miles of golden sands. The town itself has many pavement cafes providing for all tastes, from chips with everything to French cuisine at its best. The locally caught sea food is delicious. Between Royan and St-Palais-Sur-Mer there are many areas where you can park your car, free of charge and walk through a small band of trees to the sandy beaches. On the same road is the zoo and a large water park.

LIMOGES Pottery.
Maison de La Porcelaine at Aixe-sur-Vienne, is well worth a visit, they carry an extensive stock of both quality and utility porcelain and is ideal for present hunting. You can also see them working in the factory, and it is easy to find being on the hill by the river.
