    Get ready to capture some seaside joie de vivre

    Sitting on western France's Atlantic coast along the Pertuis d'Antioche strait, Chatelaillon-Plage is considered a suburb of the nearby city of La Rochelle, about a 20-minute drive away. But unlike its medieval neighbor to the north, Chatelaillon-Plage is a modern resort town, with a long, sandy stretch of beaches, lined with a promenade. Browse Chatelaillon-Plage vacation rentals close to this bustling seaside walkway, or opt for something a bit more remote. Either way, you're sure to experience that French joie de vivre you can only hope to recreate back home.

    How do you say "wet 'n' wild" in French?

    Much of Chatelaillon-Plage's appeal lies on and around the famously long beach, where you'll see plenty of people sunbathing, swimming, kayaking, and snorkeling. If you need a break from the sea, take the kids to the mini-golf course, or opt for an adults-only outing to the spa. Throughout the year, you'll also find plenty of festivals, celebrating everything from kites to oysters to Christmas. No matter what, the best way to cap each day in Chatelaillon-Plage is with a stroll along the promenade, people-watching from any of the waterfront bars and restaurants.

    Amusement for all ages, on la mer and off

    For a change in scenery, head to the nearby Chatelaillon Beach Aquatic Center, where you'll find a large public pool, as well as a water park that les enfants in your crew are sure to love. Just south of the beach, there's also the Natural Reserve of the Marais d'Yves, with saltwater marshes that can be toured by boat. Other highlights surrounding most Chatelaillon-Plage vacation rentals include a casino and a racetrack, or, if a daytrip is in order, head to La Rochelle, where you'll find a variety of history museums, art galleries, and a botanical garden.

    Bring your sunglasses for one of France's sunniest spots

    With one of Western France's best beaches, Chatelaillon-Plage's peak season happens from late June through August, when it feels like the entire country flocks to the coast. If you'd rather avoid the buzz of the region's busiest months, consider checking out Chatelaillon-Plage vacation rentals in the shoulder seasons. April through May and September through October are both ideal times to visit, when crowds are smaller and prices are lower. The area quiets down significantly in late fall through winter, but as one of France's sunniest regions, you still may find pleasant weather.

    Boatloads of fun to be found all around the beach

    Most visitors agree, the very best thing about Chatelaillon-Plage is its long stretch of sandy beachfront. Oysters are also popular in the region, with a shellfish farm you can visit on the Bay of Boucholeurs. Nearby, you can also tour the saltwater marshes of the Natural Reserve of the Marais d'Yves, or hike through the forests of the Marais Poitevin Natural Regional Park to the north. Alternatively, if you'd rather stay close to the sea, take a boat ride out to the tiny Ile d'Aix, or the much larger Ile de Re and Ile d'Oleron.
