Things to do in Charente Maritime, France

The beaches make taking a holiday rental in Charente Maritime worth it by themselves. However, they are only a tiny fraction of the activities on offer here. If you take to the water, the sailing is exceptional, and there is equipment available for all levels of expertise. You can sail to discover some of the islands just off the coast, including Ile de Re or Ile d'Aix. There are many international sailing events here, including the Whitbread Trophy which is contested in the blue seas of Charente Maritime. The waters are also perfect for fishing, with sea-bass, sea bream and meagre all available.

There are national parks including Port des Salines and Cabane de moins encapsulating salt marshes and lagoons. This is an important area for migratory birds coming from America, so bird watching is also popular.

Charente Maritime is an established centre for Romanesque art, and information is available at the heritage centre in Lozay.

The apartment and fittings were great and the position near to some great facilities and the town could not have been better. If we come to La Rochelle again we will definitely try to get this apartment again.
