June in Charente Maritime France - a great place to take an early summer holiday - something for everyone!!

On the French Atlantic coast roughly between La Rochelle and Bordeaux, Charente Maritime has a lot to offer if you are looking for a holiday in June. Sunshine hours are 2nd only to the Mediterranean, all of the numerous attractions and restaurants are open BUT the hordes of school holiday families with their children have yet to arrive. It feels like you have the place to yourselves - bliss!! When you have soaked up enough sun then set off to explore the amazing local Roman history or the fishing harbours on the massive Gironde estuary - the biggest in Europe. The local attractions will excite you with how to choose and enjoy wine and Cognac, how to cook and eat seafood and so much more. The nearby Go-Kart track is world class and they have a kart for people with disabilities so everyone can enjoy the fun!! Le Manoir offers a perfect base in the heart of the Charente Maritime countryside yet only 12 mins from the Gironde estuary and 35 mins from the golden Atlantic beaches of Royan. I have been providing holidays for 12 years and I offer a very popular individual briefing tailored to your interests to help you get the most out of your holiday. And, if you prefer a lazy day, Le Manoir has a beautiful pool and loads of activities in the grounds but also in the games area of the beautiful stone barn. The local lanes are a delight for a stroll through orchards, vines and sunflowers. If you are feeling more energetic, we have a range of bikes, most almost new. The local lanes are a delight for gentle cycling and how wonderful to cycle to the local Boulangerie for your breakfast fresh baguette and some fresh croissants. I hope to get the chance to give you a great holiday and, if there is anything I can do to help, just email
