Description from owner


St Caprais Manor house is a charming 200 years old property with its own private heated swimming pool set in a beautiful garden with lots of green private space to play, sun bathe and barbecue with family and friends while watching the sunset.

The house offers all the charms of an old French country side property only 20 minutes from beautiful beaches of Royan area and lots of stunning historical towns such as Cognac & Talmont. The nearest charming town of Gemozac hosts a farm market twice a week.

The house and its grounds are surrounded by sunflower fields and vineyards and back onto a forest. The shaded terrace right outside the kitchen overlooks the swimming pool and the garden, so you can quietly enjoy your glass of wine during the warm sunset hours, whilst the children play in the pool or the garden under your close supervision.

Further details indoors

The house has been carefully and lovingly restored to its original 1880s charm yet with all the modern comforts that we today expect. It is cosy, spacious, easy to maintain yet very family friendly oriented.

The kitchen is very large divided into two main areas, both with large glass doors onto the terrace, its a French hand made kitchen, full of light and has plenty of space for cooking, storing things or family socialising. It has a dining area & table that can seat up to ten people and an additional breakfast table that seats four. The table is often used for kids to eat at or do their creative activities.

The living room has a large modern TV with a DVD & video player and lots of movies for grown ups and little ones. It has two big leather sofas, that can comfortably sit eight people.

The guest bedroom has a beautiful large en suite bathroom joined to it with walk-in wet room shower, toilet and a old style bath tub. There is also a separate toilet on the ground floor for all guests to use.

Upstairs, on the first floor, there is a children´s bedroom with a big build-in hand made wardrobe with plenty of space for all the families clothes, spare bed clothes and towels & a large mezzanine above where the kids can play safely. The main bathroom has a large corner bath, which is used primarily as the children's bathroom, a toilet and two wash hand basins.

The middle bedroom has an original fireplace with a mantle piece mirror hanging over it and has two restored wrat iron twin beds & has a very large original antique wardrobe for all your clothes. The two bedrooms overlook the front courtyard. There is original wooden flooring throughout the entire Upstairs.

The master bedroom has a double bed, overlooks the swimming pool and the main view onto the garden. It has its own en suite and a beautiful hand made wardrobe with a huge mirror for all your clothes.

Further details outdoors

The entire garden is completely private and mature, it offers lots of space. The swimming pool is heated, fully fenced and gated, it sits right opposite the large treble glass sliding kitchen doors and spacious terrace where you can sit relax and keep an eye on the family from the terrace outside or from the kitchen through the huge sliding glass doors.

The terrace right outside the kitchen, overlooks the pool and has an outdoor dining table that can seat at least ten people. It is shaded by a canvas and can be used all day until the late night hours.

There is a swing set and a kids playhouse on stilts in the garden.At the end of the garden is a large Forest where the kids and adults can enjoy exploring.

Very Good

“We had a lovely holiday and would happily spend our holiday there all over again!”

Reviewed 3 Jul 2013

Overall a lovely place to get away to, in a good location close enough to sea and some fantastic beaches yet not in the thick of it all. The property was in good order, very spacious and well equipped with plenty of cutlery, kitchen equipment etc. Great pool area and safe for little ones, lovely garden with treehouse and plenty of space and our daughter loved the swings!

“Wonderful well equipped home, close to lovely beaches”

Reviewed 29 Sep 2012

The house is set in the most beautiful location with lovely gardens in a quiet setting but within a central location for easy access to the whole of the region and it's beaches and historic centres. The standards of the accommodation was excellent and the whole booking experience was good. A warm welcome was on hand from the friendly local caretakers who were able to provide additional information on local must dos, such as the ferry across to the Gironde. A wonderful base for a great holiday, with the reality much better than the photographs!
