Vaux sur mer
for your holidays


The inhabitants are called “Vauxois” and “Vauxoises”. The town is partly situated on a chalky plateau . It is limited in the north by the marsch of Saint-Augustin and in the East by the Marsch of Pontaillac. In the south Vaux opens onto the Estuary. The coast is made of cliffs and “punctuated” with four beaches. The largest is Nauzan.
The holm oaks and pine woods cover a part of the cliffs (Bois des Fées) and the north of the town.
There are a lot of underground galleries under the town. Some of them used to be fisheries for the monks.
A pedestrian path links the four beaches and it is a pleasant walk by the seaside.

Saint-Etienne church is one of the rare remains of an ancient Benedictine abbey church typical of the roman “Saintongeais” style. Its modest appearance is due to important destructions caused by the war.
Situated on the north part of Pontaillac the “Assomption-de-Notre-Dame chapel is characteristic of the neo gothic in vogue in the 19th century. The front is very sober with a big rose the shapes of which are very simple.
