Many of us wait for holidays and long weekends to bridge the Royan and its surroundings. We pack our bags and take family and friends to (re)discover Destination Royan Atlantique. We choose our extended weekend: May 1, May 8, Ascension Bridge or Pentecost weekend for a taste of holidays in Charentes!

5 good reasons to make the bridge and take the road towards Royan:

Week-end en bord de mer sur la Destination Royan Atlantique


Living by the rhythm of the tides

The weather decides for us the program of the day. In May, the sun and the mildness are back. Why not take the opportunity to take a dip? At low tide, you can tease the shrimp in the rocks or get your fill of sensations in a sand yacht on the immense fine sandy beaches.

Enjoy our beaches

Balade en forêt pendant un week-end prolongé


Go off the beaten track and take a bath in nature

In spring, flora and fauna are on the alert. We dive into the heart of our forests to observe them. Not a sound. We find ourselves alone, in communion with nature. The typical fresh and resinous smell of pines intoxicates us. The forest trails have some nice surprises in store for us and spectacular views of the ocean.

Stop at the port and taste oysters over a drink

As a seafood lover, the coast is the perfect place to sample fresh produce. The ports on the banks of the Seudre offer us a picturesque setting with their wooden huts near the clears, in the heart of the oyster basin of Marennes-Oléron.

Along the coast by bike, a whole way of life!

By bicycle, we criss-cross the surroundings. We cross varied landscapes: forest, marshes, fields to reach seaside resorts or listed villages. Along the Vélodyssée® route, take a break on the beach for an invigorating swim!

En route!

Balade en kayak sur la Seudre


Explore the secrets of the Seudre channels

If the sea is still a little too cool for us, we opt for a kayak trip on the Seudre estuary. By getting lost in the maze of the marsh, we discover wild vegetation and a rich biodiversity. A relaxing experience, perfect for recharging your batteries.

Before packing your suitcase, we tell you more about where to sleep and what to do on the weekend!

We find the ideal vacation rental for a family weekend in Royan, an apartment in a comfortable residence, a bedroom in a hotel in Saint-Palais-sur-Mer or we book a mobile home in a campsite at La Palmyre with heated swimming pool.
