Hi Jennifer & Harvey
We had a lovely time thank you very much. Comfortable house in a great location. Discovered Pineau for the first time and rather got a taste for it! The kids loved the beach.
We stayed in Imagine with our two children in July/August. The house is in a quiet residential area, very clean and well equipped with a lovely big garden. Having English TV and wi-if made it a real home from home. Meschers is a lovely town, easy to walk into the centre and to the Super-U. The port is a bit further away and has lots of restaurants to choose from. A 10 minute drive takes you to Saint-Georges-de-Didonne, a bigger town with a large beach and promenade and a little bit further up the coast is Royan which is more lively. The beaches in this area are great, one for every day of the week! Fine sand and very safe for swimming. All in all we had a great holiday at Imagine and loved this area of France, we will definitely be returning.
Stayed in La Petite Maison, a compact bungalow for 2. English TV a bonus.Owners & Manager efficient, friendly & helpful. Area lovely with markets, fish restaurants and places of interest. definitely recommend to anyone wishing a quiet, relaxed holiday.
Had a great Easter holiday with the family. We hired both houses which were super,clean with everything we needed included for our beak away.
Lovely restaurant , gorgeous beach all close by -within walking distance, with an added bonus of lovely weather
We will be definitely be returning and recommending to our friends.
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.
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!
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.
