Well-known for its relaxing effects, Jonzac is a dynamic city that offers various activities, like its Antilles, its thermal spas, and its casino. The town also presents interesting historical spots like the castle and the windmill that can be joined on foot for a peaceful walk. If you are a Cognac lover, you can also find some distilleries in the surrounding countryside!

Around 45 minutes - Beaches
Les plages

Only 45 minutes driving will bring you to the first beaches, at the point were the Gironde river meets the Atlantic Ocean. In addition to the sand beaches where you can lay and relax, like Royan and Saint Palais, small villages will offer you unusual experiences. We recommend Meschers-sur-Gironde for its troglodyte accommodations and its pirate stories, and Talmont-sur-Gironde, a medieval closed town, perched a peninsula and accessible only on foot. A true change of scenery!

The beautiful and cultural city of Bordeaux is worth the. Leave your car at the city entrance and use the tramway to explore. Stop at place Pey Berland to admire the Cathedral. Go to place de La Victoire and walk up the famous rue Sainte Catherine, full of shops, toward the Grand Théatre. Go forward to admire the fountain and statue at Quinconces, then walk to the Keys to discover the place de la Bourse and its wonderful Miroirs d'eau. Wander along the Garonne to reach the Pont de Pierre, and go back to the city by the porte Cailhau, one of the six old doors of Bordeaux. Chose a restaurant in the animated rue Saint-Rémi, and end the day in one of the numerous bars!

La Rochelle

Harbour town since the XII century, La Rochelle is a small and peaceful city. Walk along the water behind the Vieux Port old towers or in the historical center. La Rochelle is also the ideal place for a cruise to join the beautiful islands of Aix, Oléron, or Ré, where you can rent a bike for the day. You can also navigate to the famous Fort Boyard; you won't be able to enter this old prison, but some companies offer to sail all around!
