Discover between “land and sea” the fishermen village of l’Eguille sur seudre, one of the many islands of the Gulf of Santons located on the Gironde Estuary. This picturesque place has kept its authenticity and the charm of the Seudre harbour. This village, which owes its name to the Cretaceous limestone peak on which it is built, has been inhabited since prehistoric times. Not to be missed also the Château de L’Éguille, rebuilt by Michel FROGER around 1715 still remains, unfortunately well mutilated!
What to see, what to do on holiday in Eguille sur Seudre
Located on the road to Rochefort, in Saujon, about 5 km from the campsite, L’Éguille-sur-Seudre is a charming village where you can discover all the secrets of shellfish farming. To learn more about shellfish farming, visit the oyster port. You will be able to converse with the oyster farmers, ask them about their trade and stroll around the Saint-Martin church. The town also houses a war memorial and a protestant temple built in 1820.
Visitors to L’Éguille usually come here to find what they can not find in town or in the major seaside resorts: calm, authenticity and raw nature. The village is a good starting point for hikes to the Gironde coast or for a bucolic walk in the heart of the Saintongeaise countryside.
