While going to Charente-Maritime, you can enjoy the beach and the beautiful waves of the Atlantic, but that's not all. Since the wind is sometimes intense on the coast, you have the possibility to organize different visits during your stay whether it’s with friends or family. For all the lovers of art and history, you are not likely to be disappointed. At the archaeological level, one can mention the visit of the paleosite of Saint-Césaire which is one of the largest centers on prehistory in the world. It’s there that the bones of a 20-year-old Neanderthal were found. The Gallo-Roman site of the Fâ also welcomes you where all the discoveries are showcased in showrooms and where you will have the chance to discover aerial photos taken in 1975. The castles of the Charente-Maritime will not fail to make you dream also. Between the castle of Taillebourg or of Montendre, you can travel through time. Various museums are also present including the Napoleon Museum on the island of Aix, the House of Pierre Loti in the heart of Rochefort or the Museum of Natural History. Of course, you can succumb to the charm of the towns and villages of Charente-Maritime with totally atypical places. There is some of the most beautiful villages in France, including the fleet, Mornac-sur-Seudre, Talmont-sur-Gironde and Ars-en-Ré.
Enjoying an oceanic climate throughout the year, Charente-Maritime is a destination where the Four seasons are well marked. So we recommend you leave between the months of May and September, because the humidity is very present during winter and autumn. However, the wind can also rise at times, especially because of the presence of the Atlantic Ocean.
