About the neighbourhood
There is so much to do locally you will have to come time and time again.... Sandy Beaches: within 20 minutes drive of Font Remy you will find some of the best sandy beaches in Europe. The 3 star Michelin rated 2km long fine sandy beach at Royan, the capital of the Cote de Beaute (Coast of Beauty), stretches north to south from the yachting marina to Saint-Georges-de-Didonne. Here you can hire the wonderful old-fashioned blue and white tents to protect you from the hot summer sun. Saint-Georges-de-Didonne, south of Royan, has its own long sandy beach and closer still to Font Remy at Meschers and La Plages des Vergnes you will find more sandy coves with caves and rock pools. The beaches of the Cote Sauvage (north of Royan) have the best waves for water sports and fabulous sand dunes. Simil... more

BY CAR Font Remy is about 4 hours drive from St Malo, 5 hours from Le Havre or 7 hours from Calais. The motorway which brings you into Charente Maritime is the A10. The best route from Calais is via Boulogne, Rouen, Le Mans and Tours - simply follow the signs and you can’t go wrong. It's motorway all the way (apart from going around Rouen) and brand new roads make the drive a pleasure and quicker than the route via Paris.

BY AIR Font Remy is 1 hour’s drive from both La Rochelle and Bordeaux airports, 90 mins from Poitiers and about 2 hours from Limoges and Bergerac.
