La Tremblade, the village where the oyster is queen

Oyster lovers, prepare your taste buds! Between land and sea, marsh and ocean, La Tremblade lives on its oyster farming activity, recognised throughout France for the quality of its products.

Go on the oyster trail and meet the producers, strolling along in front of the oyster cabins.

But La Tremblade also has a magical beach on the banks of the Seudre, typical Charentais architecture and exceptional light.

La Rochelle, a town loaded with history

With breathtaking beauty, especially when night falls on its old port and the lights illuminate the old stone of its famous towers, La Rochelle deserves at least a day to visit and take in the atmosphere.

A city centre with ancient architecture, small streets where bars and restaurants line up alongside one another, you will want to have a good look round La Rochelle before relaxing and admiring its old port, with its restaurants and its events.
