Full Description

Built to the present owners' exacting specifications in 2011, this ultra-modern property also has a hidden past as it has been built using a Second World War German bunker as its foundations! The bunker has 8 rooms with their original metal doors, some bearing signs showing their wartime function - "Operations Room" and the like. The bunker provides dry storage and could be converted to other uses also - it's constant temperature makes it an ideal wine cellar as one suggestion...

To return to the modern home above ground, the house is very private, secure and secluded, in a peaceful street with direct pedestrian access via a footpath to the beach and superb facilities of the Pontaillac beach with numerous bars, restaurants and shops plus the well-known casino. The beach is protected by rocky outcrops at each end but has its moments as a surfing beach too.

The town of Royan offers a great all-year round variety of social and cultural activities and has an excellent choice of quality shopping, in addition to its unusual and fabulous indoor market, built like the Royan "cathedral" and other local iconic buildings to the designs of national and international architects taking part in the post-war reconstruction of the town, largely destroyed by Allied action at the end of World War Two.

The surrounding area holds plenty of interest with easy access to Atlantic coast beaches and ports and the attractions of the Gironde Estuary and the Médoc Peninsula, reached by a regular ferry service from Royan. The marina in Royan itself offers excellent facilities for boatowners and there is an airfield for private aircraft enthusiasts. The nearest airports are Bordeaux and La Rochelle, reached by road in about 90 minutes and 65 minutes respectively. Royan is served by regional trains giving access to the larger towns and cities of the region, including Angoulême from where the high-speed trains can whisk you to Paris in less than two hours.
