If you’re not a fan of the cold, wait for the weather to warm up for your getaway to the coast here to get the most out of the beaches and many marine activities on offer. It’s worth the wait: summer plays host to many of the best cultural events in Charentes. Francofolies jumps immediately to mind. This festival has brought the best of the French music scene together for over 30 years. On the program you’ll find over a hundred concerts spread over 5 days. But the region around Charente-Maritimes has many other excellent events. The La Rochelle Film Festival nourishes the souls of film lovers with more than 200 different films. Music lovers will find their happiness at the Classic Festival at the port in late July. Finally, this fantastic events calendar wouldn’t be complete without the Grand Pavois, the #1 event for lovers of boating. While it may be held in the off-season, in late September/early October, Europe’s largest sailing festival is well worth a return flight, even with a stopover, between Nice and La Rochelle!
