We arrived in Soulac-sur-Mer without having really planned to stay there. The Tourist Info was closed, so we took pot luck with the list of accommodation pinned to the door, and rang La Dame de Coeur to see if they had a room. We parked in the large-free- public car park across the rather attractive square in front of the lovely old church. The hotel is a PMU bar/tabac with rooms. The bar area is just what you expect from a PMU bar - the owner was friendly and invited us to check out the room before we committed ourselves. The room was clean, bed comfortable and modern and bed linen clean. Decent flat screen tv, and one of those all-in-one plastic moulded shower room/toilet things that are popular with Etape hotels and such-like. Perfectly clean and functional though. It was a small room, so a bit of maneuvering around our luggage and each other, but certainly adequate for a night. Breakfast was a good continental breakfast with excellent coffee. We could have eaten out on their 'terrace' area in the square opposite but sadly we were experiencing the first rain we have had for over 6 weeks! So we ate in the bar. It is a very short walk to the market (Saturdays) and shops. I quite liked Soulac-sur-Mer. It has a seaside feel,of course, so a little of the tackiness you would expect at the coast, but retains some charm and individuality. We went to the market on Saturday morning and were stunned by the selection of food available - quite different to many French markets - lovely . Spent far too much money there, but enjoyed wandering round - it is not a huge market, but good quality.Would definitely have stayed another night if we hadn't needed to head North again on the Sunday. 48,84€ for the room, plus 2 petit dejeuners at 7 € each - very good value.
