Fancy the idea of watching a concert with the sand between your toes and a star-studded sky above your head? Whether or not you are a fan of classical music, you won’t be able to help falling under the charm of the festival “Un Violon sur le Sable” where an orchestra of 80 musicians puts on a breath-taking performance right at the edge of the waves. An event that is totally unique, to be experienced at least once during your holiday near Royan!
And to be part of the audience, nothing could be easier: simply settle yourself comfortably on the south-facing La Grande Conche beach that stretches for 2,650 metres. Then relax and let the classical music, chosen from some of the greatest works, carry you away. There’s no better way to forget the everyday! You missed the concerts? The festival is also available in another version: “Un Violon sur la Ville”, with encounters and musical entertainment in the centre of Royan and the surrounding area.
