About Harvey & Jennifer Newman

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 house in 2003

Why Harvey & Jennifer Newman chose Royan area

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.

What makes this house unique

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.

A peaceful and tranquil property

  • 5 of 5

Booking was very easy. The owners were very helpful. The property is small but was perfect for us. It was clean and nicely furnished and we enjoyed many relaxing meals out in the garden. It was a real bonus to have so much within walking distance; the beach, the town and harbour area are all within easy walking distance. When we did take to the car the resorts of St Georges and Royan are a short distance away as is the pretty village of Talmont. We would certainly visit again.

Compact and bijoux

  • 3 of 5

Perfectly placed to explore typical French life. Excellent communication from the owners all through the booking process and afterwards. The property is only suitable for a couple and has a peculiar arrangement of traipsing through the bathroom and the garage to get to the small private garden, but - it's private and cosy. The local town of Meschers-sur Gironde is just a few minutes walk with a regular market, and the bigger town of Royan is a short drive away. Sandy beaches abound and local eateries are everywhere. Great place.

Owner's Response: As the kitchen of La Petite Maison is at the front of the house we have installed a gate at the side of the kitchen directly into the private garden. This means that there are two routes to access the garden. One via the gate at the side of the kitchen and the other via the garage.

A real nice little house in a wonderful area

  • 5 of 5

My husband and I stayed for ten days in the Petite Maison in Meschers-sur-Gironde. The contact to the owners Jennifer and Harvey was uncomplicated and obliging. The little house was perfect for two people and we felt there very comfortably. It took ten minutes to walk to the beach and the city of Meschers has a nice supermarket and a lot of little shops. We made some interesting excursions to Royan, La Rochelle and Cognac. The beach in Meschers was wonderful and we spend really fantastic holidays there.

Another lovely holiday

  • 5 of 5

My wife and I decided to celebrate our second wedding anniversary in Merschers. This was the third time we stayed in the petit maison so knew it was an ideal location to relax. Merschers has always been laid back and friendly on our visits. The May weather was beautiful and warm, so the compact garden was ideal for lounging in when we didn't want to go to the beach.  It also allowed us to enjoy bbqs on the lovely warm evenings. The tv being linked up to British tv channels was also very useful. Merschers with its main street shops, market and supermarket catered for all our needs. The beach was lovely and quiet in its secluded location and a great place to chill out and bask in the sun.

Overall, another great holiday, set up by an ideal place to stay. I have no doubt we will return next year. Many thanks to the owners.

Excellent Petite Masion and location .

  • 5 of 5

This was our first time we have book by the internet and was very please with Jennifer & Harvey quick e- mails back to us . The Masion was easily large enough for the too of us, comfortably , clean for all our needs .The Masion is well equiped and has a good outside for dining and relaxing .We enjoyed many BBQ's and had lovely meals , which we ate outside in the cool of the shade .

The location is really great for the beach and the shops. A short walk to the beautiful plage des Nonnes , whith has too beach cafes . Meschers has a lovely morning market everyday only a five min walk . The port has nice restaurants also .

I would not hesitate to recommend this Masion , we had a wonderful holiday in June . We didn't need to use our car every day as the supermarket is only a short walk .

A Masion and area we would love to return to .

Thank you Jennifer & Harvey
