About the Guide

The Longtail Guide to Royan contains the authors' experience of over 20 years living and visiting Royan and the surrounding area. It covers not only Royan but many other selected nearby places to visit. (Check out the full Table of Contents) It means you are able to arrive with invaluable local knowledge about the best things to do and see.

The Guide is available for immediate download using the Buy Now button on the right.

And you don't have to worry about "digital rights management" - you can read the book on your laptop at home, print out all or part of it but also have a copy on your i-pad or tablet e-reader for travelling. (Needless to say the copy you buy is your personal copy and if other people want a copy we ask that they respect the work that has gone into the guide and purchase their own copy).

The Guide is completely independent, contains no advertising or sponsorship. At over 5Mb in size it contains over 17,000 words (pages do not have much significance with e-books) and 50 full colour images and includes a French/English Menu reader to help you understand 'what you are about to eat'.

To help you plan your visit and get around once you are there we have created an interactive online map showing most of the places mentioned in the guide.

And finally we will be using the 'Whats On' blog on this site to keep you up to date with local events and news.
