Royan The Essential
Recommended
After the bombings of 1945, hardly anything of the capital of the Beautiful Coast remained...If you did not include its magnificent beaches. Today a modern town has replaced the great hotels, the villas and the chalets that the old inhabitants of Royan talk about nostalgically and were what Jacques Henri Lartigues made immortal. But the town has recovered its fortunes. It is true though that with its location at the mouth of the Gironde, it would have been hard to do otherwise.
