Guestbook comments from the owner
As a couple in our sixties, we had a wonderful holiday in Meschers staying in Imagine. The property is a real home from home with everything you could wish for a perfect stay. We had driven from Kent and with our own car it meant we could explore the region and relax on several lovely beaches. The recommended restaurants came up to expectation and we were amazed at the reasonable prices. If you love mussels and oysters then this is the place to gorge on them! A visit to Talmont is a must with a trip around the little museum. We took a trip to Ile d'Oleron but didnt find it as picturesque as we had anticipated and so pleased we didnt stay there. Beyond Royan heading north we had memorable walks through pine forests to la Palmerie (but didnt visit the Zoo). All in all, an area and home to which we would definitely return in the future and would recommend to anyone. Would award 5 out of 5 for this beautiful holiday home.

We are real Francophiles, Harvey lived in France when younger and before buying our house in France we would spend each summer holiday touring France in our caravan with our children and friends. Now our children and grandchildren join us at the house for holidays.

Harvey & Jennifer Newman purchased this bungalow in 2003

The house is ideal for family holidays as the two properties can be used together or independently. With gardens and being close to the beach and village the house is ideal for family, children and the elderly.

La Petite Maison is ideal for two people to use as a base for sightseeing. The village, market and beach are within walking distance. Imagine has a veranda upon which you can relax with an aperitif and watch the sun descend.

Wonderful location

  • 5 of 5
We stayed at Imagine in June/July 2014 with our 4 year old daughter. The house is very good size, has everything you need for a comfortable stay, is in a quiet residential area and has a large secure garden for children to play in. All the amenities are within walking distance and there are several beaches to visit. We enjoyed the Zoo at Palymyre, the Waterpark at Jonzac and the centre at Royan. Would definitely recommend and would love to return in the future.

Walking in Meschers (from Imagine)

  • 4 of 5
Had a smashing time in Meschers, all the facilities you could ever need in the bungalow.
The weather wasn't too kind during our stay, but that didn't stop us from enjoying ourselves.

Easy 10 minute walk (if that!) to the local bread shop or Super U, was never short of groceries and wine! The local brew from Talmont was exceptionally nice (found in supermarket) (Talmont village worth a visit too)

We walked for miles up the coastal path and had lunch at a couple of the beach cafe/restaurants on the way.

The port (many restaurants) and the local beach (in the opposite direction) are only 20 minutes walk away.

Loads to see and do in the area, loved it! Get to the Zoo at Palmyre if you get the chance, but allow yourself 4 hours while you are there to see it all and have a bit of lunch!

Very relaxing week in fantastic surroundings

  • 5 of 5
We chose Imagine as a destination to enjoy a week together as family before our daughter departs for University life. Having had a very hectic and intense period with work and study/exams we were all ready to do very little other than enjoy some quiet time. Imagine and Meschers is ideal for that. The house is wonderfully positoned close to all village amenities,beach,port,market and shops. A very quiet location with friendly but unintrusive neighbours to make you feel welcome. The house has everything you need to be comfortable and provide an ideal base for the holiday. Large rooms and good standard of furnishing lmakes this a "home from home". The owners are extremely helpful and attentive people who go out of their way to ensure all is in place for an enjoyable stay. I would recommend this highly for relaxing holiday seekers as it has so much going for it. You have no need to leave the village if you so wish as eveything you need is within walking distance of this property. Do not hesitate to book this you will not be disappointed.

Chilled out week in the sun

  • 5 of 5
My wife and I decided to have a relaxing week to celebrate our first wedding anniversary. We stayed in the petit maison a few years back so knew it was an ideal location to chill out, and loved the laid back and friendly atmosphere that Meschers provides.
Since our last stay it seems the owners have spent a lot of time in improving the gardens of both houses. The petit maison has a compact garden which was an ideal suntrap for near perfect weather. It also meant we could dine outside most days and enjoy bbqs.
The kitchen seems to have been re-done since our last stay and had all the amenities you'd want out of a holiday home. Since our last visit the tv has been linked up to British channels meaning my wife stayed up to date with her soaps.
Meschers was as charming as it was on our first visit with a variety of shops on the main street, market and supermarket catering for all our needs. Everything is within a short walk and the house is in an ideal location being so close to the centre. The number of bakers meant you could really sample the local bread and cakes. We had a lovely couple of days out on the nearby beach.
Overall we had an excellent time and really enjoyed our week. We look forward to staying there soon. Many thanks to the owners.

Fantastic Getaway!

  • 5 of 5
Just what the 3 of us wanted and needed. Peacefull walks to the seafront and the quiet village feel made relaxing in this haven a delight. Morning strolls for fresh bread to the Boulangerie, local produce from supermarket, shops and decwent restaurants all walkable. Would recommend to families and couples alike, the house was clean well maintained and had a lovely feel with everything you need inside to stay in and relax in the garden. We got lucky with the weather and are definately looking to book up again. A big thank You to the owners and extremely helpfull French couple.
