Saint-Germain-du-Seudre is a small historic town on the Gironde estuary. It is a commune in the Charente-Maritime department in south-western France.

Although it belongs administratively to the "canton" of Saint Genis de Saintonge, the nearest market town is Gémozac and is noted for its numerous vineyards, sunflower fields and the former wheat mill located in 'Moulin De La Barre'. Eutrope Dupon (1823-1897), born in Saint-Germain-du-Seudre, was a deputy (congressman)in the French National Assembly from 1893 to 1897. There is a bust of him in St-Germain.[1]
