Things to experience in the Royan & SW France

As well as being a fantastic haven for water-babies who love nothing more than spending hours out on the water, the South West and Royan regions of France offer a lot to experience on dry land too.

We’ve put together a few things to experience:

La Rochelle

The Towers of La Rochelle

The three towers that stand over La Rochelle’s harbour are an iconic sight as they stand tall protecting the entrance from unwanted visitors…well they did back in unsettled times gone by when the city was at war. Visitors can now climb up the towers that date back to the 13th and 14th century to enjoy fantastic views over the water including the nearby islands of Aix, Ré and Oléron as well as over the city.  The towers are open all year round, with varying opening hours. Guided tours are also available.

The Aquarium de la Rochelle

There’s something so wonderfully relaxing and fascinating about aquariums and La Rochelle’s stands out as being amongst the best. You could easily spend a day learning about the sealife around the French Atlantic Coast.
