Between La Baule and Biarritz, stretch the sandy bays of Royan. Generous amounts of sunshine per year make Royan’s beaches one of the most attractive resorts on the French Atlantic Coast.

One of the very few French cities rebuilt after being destroyed during the World War II, Royan charms with its seaside architecture. From the ship-resembling church Notre-Dame and the covered food market to the gorgeous villas, the town is characterized by inspiring architectural shapes.

Whether you are looking for a sporting activity or relaxation; you will definitely find what you need in Royan! To name a few, you can take sailing lessons, enjoy horse riding, play golf or visit the Jardins du monde to explore the orchid greenhouse and the butterfly house. The city is also one of the best places in France for cycling with your friends and family.

Because you deserve to be spoiled and pampered, the town offers individualized thalassotherapy treatments. As in the rest of the Poitou-Charentes region, there is a fine selection of delicious regional specialties and grand crus which will please all food lovers.
