Settle into ‘Echappée Deuche’ for a day filled with the discovery of the rich historical and maritime heritage of Rochefort, Port des Barques, Brouage, Marennes, and Cayenne harbour with its oyster-farmers’ huts; without forgetting the medieval castle of Saint-Jean-d’Angles...
Leave for a day-long escapade departing from Aunis to Saintonge; from the historical heritage to the birds’ marshland paradise, from the leisure boats to the Hermione.
