Make a holiday rental home or villa in Charente Maritime, France your home away from home

Charente Maritime, the coastal region of Poitou Charentes, France, has 300 miles of beaches. As you would expect from this region of France, the seafood is sensational, especially the locally harvested oyster beds, and is best washed down with a selection from the cellars of the local vineyards. A Charente Maritime property or some of the gites in Charente Maritime on offer here provide a perfect base for not only discovering the coast and beaches, but for cycle tours walks in the region.

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.

Inland, anglers have a wealth of choice. The Charente, Boutonne and Dronne rivers are all available for angling. Following the rivers inland, you discover some areas of incredible natural beauty. 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.
