Quai des Fleurs is about 200 meters from the Rue du Centre and the local shops of Saint Savinien. The village has three bakeries, a delicatessen, a butcher's shop, an organic grocery store, three knick-knack shops, and of course the art galleries and ephemeral shops of the local artists and artisans. In Saint Savinien we're also fortunate to have doctors, a pharmacy, a post office and a supermarket. For hikers and cycling enthusiasts, we are just a few hundred metres from the green countryside and from the La Flow Vélo cycling circuit. And for children in the summer season (end of April to end of September), there is the Miniature Port: electric boats made by a former marine carpenter, which can be driven on a small lake - provided there is at least one child with you! There are also old merry-go-rounds, a café by the pond and inflatables.
Known for its Gallo-Roman heritage, the city of Saintes is only 20 minutes away by car, or 10 minutes by train.
Half an hour by car from Saint Savinien, Rochefort, where you can visit the Arsenal, the Corderie Royale, the Musée de la Marine and the famous ship L'Hermione.
Forty-five minutes from Saint Savinien, take a stroll through the picturesque streets of La Rochelle, discover its old port and enjoy its excellent restaurants!
