Days Out

Palmyre Zoo

La Palmyre Zoo

La Palmyre Zoo is less than 30 km away and gives you the chance to see more than 1,600 animals including monkeys, big cats and elephants. It's a great attraction for a family day out. The sea lion and parrot shows are particularly entertaining.



The old town of Marennes is 5 km away from Sequoia Parc. It is world-renowned for its delicious oysters, so make sure you give the local delicacy a try. They'll go down nicely with Pineau, an aperitif famous in the region, but if this isn’t to your taste then the great cognac vineyards are only 40 miles away.

Centre Aquatique

Centre Aquatique

Centre Aquatique, situated at Chatelaillon Plage, is another great attraction and is suitable for all ages. There are indoor and outdoor pools with slides and for the very brave, one very long, very steep chute. Relax and unwind in the saunas, steam rooms and jacuzzis too.

Les Jardins du Monde

Les Jardins du Monde

What could be more magical than the natural beauty of Les Jardins du Monde? Get lost in the romanctic japanese gardens, the bamboo labyrinth or boat trips through the marshes. There's even a pretty butterfly conservatory too.
