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.

"A wonderfully relaxing holiday in a beautiful setting"
What a find.... The Old Bakery at La Flotte provided the perfect setting for a totally chilled out 2 week holiday. The accommodation was lovely - stylish decor, well equipped and remarkably cool in the summer heat. We found ourselves spending more time at the gite than we would have expected, enjoying walks in the grounds, relaxing by the pool and sampling the local wines. The owners Amanda and Tim made us feel very welcome and we also enjoyed the company of other guests staying at La Flotte. A wonderful holiday!
