Capital city of the “Côte de Beauté”, wonderfully located at the entrance of the Gironde estuary, Royan is an architectural showcase from the 1950s where the watchwords are "sea, light and sun".
At Hotel Cordouan****, you can discover this seaside resort and the wealth of sporting and cultural activities it offers.
Founded at the end of the 19th century, the seaside architecture has a wonderful range of surprising villas, where the fantasy of the ancient architects is freely expressed.
