Fantastic location, lovely accommodation.
This is a lovely property, a home away from home, has everything you could need. We used the pool nearly every day, eating lunch alfresco on the patio, and a great variety of local restaurants. Christine and Keith provide a great guide for local amenities, which lead us to the Sunday morning market at Royan which was particularly good, fantastic fruit. I would recommend a stay at this villa whether you are looking to chill & relax or gerting out and about there is such a lot to see.
Thanks for your positive review - pleased you had a good time. We always enjoy talking to prospective holidaymakers about the many attractions of the area. There are lots of local markets held throughout the summer, Royan on a Sunday morning is superb, being the biggest. Christine
Lovely Little Apartment
Great place to stay near Meschers and the beaches 'sur Gironde'. The apartment was not huge, but plenty of space for 2 adults and 2 kids for a week. Well maintained, very clean and well stocked with kitchen basics and utensils, games and sports equipment. Bottle of wine & water a nice touch on arrival. The shared pool, tennis court, boules pitches and table tennis table were also very clean and well looked after. Not far to walk to the beach down a quiet lane. Our favourites were Meschers (pleasant little town), a bike ride to Talmont and roadside oysters on the way to La Tremblade. A good base from which to explore the area.
restful beach break
A very well equipped home as described by the owners who are extremely friendly and helpful. We enjoyed the proximity to the beach which is safe and clean. On site we made full use of tennis and boules- necessary equipment provided. Meals were eaten front or back of the house according to the position of the sun. La Palmyre Zoo very busy but a great day out- go early, also the Cote Sauvage only about 30 min drive for bigger waves. Meschers a very pleasant town with a good market and plenty of bakers.
Pleased you enjoyed your stay in our house. We always try to be as informative as possible before you book, to ensure that you enjoy the many attractions of the area. Christine
Family holiday find
Well located within walking distance of several beaches, and restaurants.We enjoyed visiting the local towns along the beautiful coast line especially Talmont and St Georges. The house itself was spotlessly clean and very well equipped ,situated on a peaceful residence with a clean pool and modern tennis court. We also used the boules courts. The owners provided plenty of information about the local area and recommendations of places to eat and visit and were friendly and helpful, we felt they really wanted us to have a good holiday and were happy for us to use their beach mats, beach chairs, parasol etc. We travelled with our 12 and 15 year old children.
Very young children or old people may find the steep open staircase difficulty.
The local area is very French with local markets daily .
We would definitely return.
We have replaced the old staircase with one that is less steep, and closed in.
