Set into the cliffs is a fascinating series of caves which can be visited. The closest is 50 meters away from the apartment. The caves were inhabited throughout the centuries and were a refuge for the Protestants in the religious wars of the 16th and 17th centuries.
The last of the inhabitants left in the early 1900s. In the cave of Matata, reconstructions of the appearances of the caves can be seen, throughout the years.
Golf and Tennis
The Golf de Royan is around 20 min driving from the apartment, in the heart of a pine forest. You can play golf here without ever coming across a road or a house. The relief is done with natural dunes, a rolling green cut into an ocean of pine trees.
The "Tennis Garden" is made up of sixteen courts with ocean views (fourteen are clay courts, three are indoors, and two have all-weather soft synthetic surfaces). There is a club-house as well as terraces with panoramic views. Training programmes with group or individual lessons are available
Cordouan the Oldest Lightouse in France
It is a great excursion to do while in our apartment. The pride of the Gironde and the oldest lighthouse in France. Long ago, there was a rocky outcrop which linked the lighthouse to the Grave headland. Now the link is barely visible at low tide and Corduan's isolation adds to the magnificence of its architecture. For four hundred years, its light has shone 40 km out into the open sea. The Cordouan lighthouse and Notre Dame de Paris were the first two monuments to be classified as historical monuments in 1862 at the requested of Merimee.
Zoo of The Palmyre: The Zoo de la Palmyre is a state-of-the-art zoological park whose 15 hectares provide a lovely spacious home for the animals in a remarkably well-kept natural site. It is great for kids, who will most likely ask to go there again and again!
Talmont the Jewel: Discover the Medieval life on France. Since the 11th century, the Saintonge region has been the home of Romanesque churches whose beauty reached their peak in the middle of the 12th century. The site deserves a visit

"Lovely apartment with great view and well located"
This is one of several apartments, which have been created by splitting up the large and charming original house, but I think it is definitely the best apartment in the building. It has stunning, and … More
