Combining impressive 1950s architecture and turn-of-the-century villas, Royan and its Grande Conche beach is a family friendly town. The market is definitely worth a visit. Travelling along the cycling route, which continues along paths and small roads, you'll reach and pass through Meschers sur Gironde before reaching Talmont sur Gironde, an amazing waterside lookout point, listed as one of France's finest villages. The Caillaud cliffs and the Balai des Carrelets further add to the idyllic atmosphere. The route continues along small roads and paths where the terrain can be quite steep until you reach the port of Mortagne-sur-Gironde, sheltered from caprices of the estuary.
