Gateway to Royan, coming from Saintes, Médis is located a few kilometers from the first beaches of Royan. Like the agricultural countryside between the two estuaries, Médis has kept the authenticity of a rural town with its localities and hamlets close to the seaside bustle. A natural curiosity, the Pousseau marsh extends over the communes of Royan and Médis. Area of pastures and wet meadows over nearly 150 hectares, it is one of the last urban marshes on the Atlantic coast.
