Talmont Sur Gironde
Talmont Sur Gironde is located a stone’s throw from the pretty village of Meschers Sur Gironde and its magnificent cliffs.
It is a typical village, which seems to sit on the Gironde estuary, and whose church, which dominates a rocky promontory jutting out over the water, can be seen a few kilometers away. It is the ideal place to walk quietly in the alleys, and stroll between the curiosity shops. Do not miss the famous cemetery at the foot of the church, where ancient tombs and hollyhocks mingle.
The site is also suitable for a bike ride, starting from Meschers Sur Gironde, or from St Georges de Didonne by housing the coastal road. Do not miss the port of Talmont Sur Gironde, from where boats used to leave for sturgeon fishing. The inhabitants of Talmont are called the Talmonais and Talmonaises.
