The Owner Recommends

Le Chateau des Enigmes

Situated in Pons, this is great family afternoon out. Within the grounds of the castle, young and old alike solve puzzles and play games with the ultimate result of setting free Pirate Willy. This is a great way to spend 3 hours. Our kids (10 & 7), loved every minute - and so did we. Take a picnic though, the grounds are a wonderful backdrop for a lunchtime visit. Great for English too, we found that all the staff we met speak English - and the games have English translations.

Les Antilles de Jonzac

Situated in Jonzac, this is an indoor/outdoor pool. There are 3 areas to this pool complex. Inside includes a man-made 'beach', the pool has a wave machine and other attractions - there is also an outside area open in the summer. For additional payment you can enter the warm pool, with relaxing therma waters - great for all the family.

Indian Forest Adventure

170 games over 14 courses/activities for a 3 hours of family fun! This is a "climb in the trees" adventure. Our kids had a great time here - there's also alot of shady cover under the trees! All instructors speak English and it was really well organised and extremely safe.

Talmont Sur Girond

Talmont is the most wonderful village - full of boutique shops and ice cream parlours, hosting magnificent views across the estuary. The village lies about 15 km (9.3 mi) south of Royan, on a small promontory which dominates the Gironde estuary. It appears to be ‘perched’ on this rocky outcrop, in the way that it occupies every square millimetre of space. We have whiled away many hours here - just taking in the atmosphere and stopping for a coffee!
