Further details outdoors

The La Flotte estate with gites in the grounds is located in a protected wildlife and wild flower reserve (a paradise for bird watchers and nature lovers) and the local countryside is ideal for cycling and walking. Although La Flotte offers tranquillity and breathtaking views, it is within minutes of shops & restaurants in the pretty harbour of Mortagne, and is also well placed for visits to Cognac, Saintes, Bordeaux etc.

La Flotte has 16 acres of private parkland and countryside. All four gites have their own private garden/al fresco dining areas complete with recently equipped garden furniture including matching furniture and large parasol.

The swimming pool at La Flotte measures 10m x 5m, surrounded by French regulation lockable child-proof security fencing. Ample poolside furniture including large, comfortable sunbeds and matching parasols. New covered outdoor relaxation area with sofas/tables. Children's outdoor play area including climbing frame/swing/slide.

The Poitou-Charentes/Vendee region

La Flotte, a tastefully restored 18th century period manor house with four gites set amongst 16 acres of private grounds and parkland.

Located about one mile from the centre of the coastal village of Mortagne-sur-Gironde complete with harbour and quayside cafes and bars. See full details including interactive video tour on our website. We are in the heart of the micro climate of the Charente Maritime with 2,700 hours of sunshine a year and surrounded by vineyards and sunflowers.

Mortagne sur Gironde

The nearest beaches are 15-20 minutes up the coast at Meschers. These are small coves with safe sandy beaches.

Another 5 minutes further up are the huge sweeping beaches of St George and Royan, each with lots of space and some watersports and full safety patrols.

North of Royan is the Grand Cote - several miles of sandy beaches with some local beach patrols. Finally a little further (say 40 minutes from La Flotte) is the Cote Sauvage, again good sandy beaches.

"Beautiful gite in an ideal location"

To be met by a smiling host, wonderful meal, two bottles of chilled wine and a pretty, well appointed gite reassured us that we'd made a good choice. The grounds have a fantastic pool, places to sit and a nearby lake for fishing. It is well placed for the coast and there are many wonderful restaurants serving the most amazing sea food. The service given by Amanda is helpful and friendly.

"A wonderful place to stay"

We have recently returned from 2 weeks at La Flotte, staying in the 2-bed Les Volets Bleus. Everything was perfect - extremely comfy beds with all mod cons throughout. Our teenage son especially valued the Wi-Fi and Freeview TV. Amanda and her family are very welcoming and we can really recommend the tasty evening meal provided on our first night. There is so much to do here.......sightseeing at La Rochelle and Bordeaux; beaches both on the Gironde estuary and also the Atlantic coast; plus lots of cycling. Our favourite trip was taking the ferry with our bicycles across the Gironde from Royan to Le Verdon (14 euros for 3 plus bikes), then cycling down to the seaside resort of Soulac via a lovely disused railway track. You can of course just laze about by the pool.......
