For children, an other long sandy beach at St Georges de Didonne (just five minutes away) provides loads of watersports and activities. After a day at the beach, you can relax in the large garden - maybe even snooze in the hammock. There's lots to do in within a 10 mile radius - Le Fa, an excavation of a roman port, with archeological museum and activities; or the Parc de l'Estuaire, just beyond Meschers.
The house gardens and driveway are closeable and secure, ideal if you are travelling with young children, pets or elderly relatives!! .
Spring and autumn stays are great opportunities for food & wine tourism. You'll find high quality produce in the local markets & vineyards to tempt you to make good use of the well-equipped kitchen or the barbecue.

The Poitou-Charentes/Vendee region
This coastal region enjoys a mild climate and long sunny days from spring through to late autumn. The area is ideal for couples or families looking for unspoilt countryside not far from amenities. Historically it was on one of the main pilgrimage routes to Spain and is dotted with ancient villages, abbeys and exquisite Romanesque churches. In the slow passing of the seasons, there is still a great feeling of timelessness, suffused with the warm vibrant light of the South.
From this mini paradise you can enjoy regional specialties: oysters of Marennes Mouclade, Pineau ... and visit the area and its rich heritage - Meschers Caves Matata (dwelling). -
Talmont, one of the most beautiful villages of France is just a five minute drive away and, the Romanesque church of Ste Radegonde is very beautiful and peaceful, lots of arty crafty shops, restaurants and cafés. -
The Palmyre Zoo with over 1600 animals is the most visited private zoo in France. It is well worth a visit on a grey day, happy and healthy animals set in hectares of pine forests.-
The Lighthouse Cordouan built by Louis XIV, the oldest lighthouse still in operation in France, sometimes called the "Versailles of the Sea", the "Lighthouse of the kings" or the" King of the headlights "... -
The Gallo-Roman archaeological site of the mill Fa Barzan. -
The town of Saintes Labelled City of Art and History, Roman treasures and museums ...
The old port and town of La Rochelle. At Rochefort, since 1997, in the old Dockyard, a passionate team rebuilt the frigate Hermione, who in 1780 allowed La Fayette to cross the Atlantic to America. This large wooden ship, witnessed a period flagship French maritime history is reconstructed in the eyes of the public can discover the work of carpenters, blacksmiths, riggers, caulkers, sailboats ..
Meschers-sur Gironde is a typical Atlantic coast seaside village, which is lively and always has things going on during the summer period. There is a daily market where as well as fresh fish and produce you can find local craftspeople displaying their wares. There are 4 beautiful beaches, La Plage du Cadet, des Nonnes, des Vergnes and Suzac, all worth a visit.
The seaside resorts of Royan and St. Georges are five/ten minutes up the coast, “la Grande Côte” with kilometres of sandy beach, is north of Royan, the Atlantic rollers often present, to surf or body board.
The village of Meschers is 5 minutes by car and offers several sandy coves or longer stretches of pine-fringed beach, ideal for swimming and sunbathing, with restaurants close at hand. Here the limestone cliffs are riddled with caves, once used by pirates and refugees, some of which are still inhabited today. Up the other side of the coast, there are prize-winning beaches at the towns of St Georges de Didonne and Royan, as well as wide stretches of sand dune and pine forest on the"Côte Sauvage", which is popular with surfers and has areas set aside for naturists. Whether it's swimming, sunbathing, enjoying a meal in the open-air, collecting driftwood, or messing around in rock-pools, there's a beach for everyone somewhere along these shores! The thriving town of Royan offers a wide selection of shops and restaurants, in addition to an extensive daily market.
A little further up the coast you can explore the pretty oyster villages around Marennes, visit the atmospheric fortified town of Brouage out in the marshes, or drive across a long bridge to the lovely island of Oléron. During summer there are numerous boat trips to outlying islands and lighthouses (like 17th century Cordouan), as well as a regular ferry to the Médoc peninsular which is home to many outstanding châteaux in the Bordeaux region. Bordeaux city itself is just over an hour away by car and definitely worth a visit now that it's reached the end of its costly restoration and is once again poised to become the "Paris of the South"... get there before the rest of the world wakes up to its charms! Other popular day-trips include the lovely wine town of St Emilion, where you can tour several famous estates, or take a 40 minute drive to Cognac and visit distilleries like Remy Martin. As in most of France, food and drink are high on the agenda!
Closer is Arces, with its boulangerie and well-regarded Franco/Irish restaurant Le Cottage. Local produce is used as far as possible for the modern irish & french dishes which attract the locals and tourists alike, and the music evenings are great fun. The Whitsun flower festival at Arces draws in the crowds, and the fireworks for Bastille Day out-do most British towns ten times the size.
