Very friendly, pretty little town. Nice restaurants. Good cycling all around, lovely beaches. Tide goes far out at low tide and you can find your own oysters. Ideal for children, with activities during the high summer. Last weekend of June is a big themed Fete, with activities, parades and concerts with huge firework display. The weather always seems to be good and even if it rains, it clears up pretty quickly. La Rochelle and Ile de Re close by, a lovely town with much history and good shopping.
