France is beautiful from the sea...

PONANT invites you to take to the sea, without a care in the world, to enjoy a break from reality in a privileged setting, and cast a fresh eye over the infinite riches of the French coastline. As your journey unfolds and depending on the elements, you will enjoy magnificent moments as unique as they are unexpected.

From Bordeaux, recharge your batteries aboard Le Bougainville* during this authentic 7-night journey to discover the natural wonders of the Atlantic coast

You will discover the Ponant Islands literally the place where the sun sets, a vast scattering of islands off the French coast, and the inspiration for the company name, some 30 years ago. Among our favourites, l’île d’Aix, the southernmost of the Ponant Islands, boasts an impressive set of fortifications including Fort Boyard. Built on a sandbank off the coast of the island, it is a superb illustration of the ingenuity of generations of builders. 

On the Île de Ré, soak up the iodized scents of the ocean to discover the historical and cultural heritage of Saint-Martin-de-Ré.

Before reaching Bordeaux, you will sail near the Cordouan Lighthouse, which guides sailors into the entrance of the Gironde Estuary This is the oldest French lighthouse still in activity, listed as a historic monument in 1862. 

The conditions will be ideal for sporting and nautical activities far from the crowds allowing you to enjoy these moments in peace and quiet. Outings in Zodiac® dinghies will give you access to sublime beaches only visible at low tide and unspoiled landscapes ideal for the contemplation and observation of nature.
