Seaside properties for sale in France

Close to all you could want

These seaside properties for sale in France are perfectly placed

This is an area of France abundant with beaches, charming villages and forests; step out of any of the seaside properties and you can walk, cycle or horse-ride for miles along long sandy beaches or amongst the sweetly scented pine and oak trees of the surrounding forests taking in its wonderful scenery. It is also an area steeped in history dating back to the Roman times and has one of the oldest lighthouses in France- “le Phare de Cordouan”. Just minutes away you have the resorts of St-Palais Sur Mer and Royan each with an excellent selection of seafood restaurants, bars, cafes and boutique shops and sailing and surfing schools.

 

 

Some of France's best weather

 

Together with St Augustin-sur-mer and some surrounding villages, they benefit from a micro-climate giving the area a particularly long bout of sunny weather that usually lasts from March right through to the end of October and even the winters here are quite mild. The amount of sunshine here is known to be comparable to the French Rivera at 2250 hours per year.

 

Escape to the islands

 

The enchanting Islands of Ile de Re, Ile d’Aix and Ile d’Oleron lie just off the coast and are accessible by car; on all these islands you will find salt marshes and plentiful oyster beds (the whole coastal region is known for its cultivation of oysters) but also long stretches of sandy beaches and forest. The islands are home to many French film stars and famous musicians who choose to live and holiday on the islands as they have retained the natural environment of the islands by only building low density, traditional housing and not the huge concrete apartment blocks that you often see on the Cote d’Azur.

 

Everything you need is on your doorstep

La Forêt d’Armotte resort is located in the commune of St Augustin-sur-mer, France and is just 500m from the authentic and cosy village centre where you will find a bakery, tobacconist/newsagents, 2 supermarkets, bicycle shop, restaurant/bar, a primary school, a nursery, a garage, antiques shop, Doctor’s surgery, ceramics & pottery shop, delicatessen, hairdressers and a church.

 

A magical coastline

St Augustin is wonderfully situated in a peaceful, natural environment surrounded by forest yet incredibly close to the beach and attractions thus having the best of both worlds. The nearest sandy beach to the properties for sale is La Plage de la Grande Cote just a few minutes away but the entire coast in this area is dotted with beaches. On this particular beach there are a number of restaurants often serving seafood as their dish of the day - what better way to spend a lazy afternoon in the sun than drinking a bottle of crisp white wine whilst eating freshly caught lobster or mussels?
