The Charente-Maritime coastline is considered one of the most beautiful in France and boasts dozens of beaches, many of the highest possible quality, perfect for building sand castles, swimming, sailing and surfing. Just off the coast of La Rochelle is the island Ile-de-Re where fashionable Parisians love to holiday. For a truly memorable meal order a platter of Huitres de Marennes-Oleron and local Pineau des Charentes wine – delicious. The abundant unspoilt regions of the Vendee is a varied landscape of historic port towns, unspoilt rural villages and the finest fish and vegetables. The Loire region has a rich, diverse and interesting history, culminating in dramatic chateau and Manoirs which are very much in evidence to explore today. Many UNESCO sites are open to the public or wander along the Grande Randonnee footpath to see the unique wildlife, hire a canoe or take a boat trip.
