Description from owner

Description

Quiet rural location near Mirambeau town centre, a five minute drive away, where there are supermarkets, one with a petrol station, banks, pharmacies, bars, restaurants, garages and a Post Office and other small local shops such as florists, hairdressers, newsagent/Tabac etc. and Quincaillerie Mallet, think of the two Ronnies and "Fork Handles" and you will know what that is.

All in all a great place to have a relaxing holiday in a Rustic Building but with all mod cons and Ideal for walkers or cyclists and close to fantastic beaches (Royan 50 minutes).

Close to all local area attractions and main attractions at Bordeaux, Saints, Cognac and La Rochelle etc. by car in about one hour. Closer at hand at Jonzac you have Les Antilles de Jonzac large swimming pool complex and also the Base de Loisirs where there is a man made beach and swimming area etc. which saves the trip to the coast as only about a 12 minute drive away.

Further details indoors

Our three restored stone and timber Charentaise cottage Gites can sleep a maximum of 5 in Moineau (2 bedrooms), 5 in Hibou (2 bedrooms) and 8 in Hirondelle (4 bedrooms). All are large rooms with full UK size single and double beds and overhead fans.

Entertainment wise all have flat screen satellite free to view TV including all main UK TV stations (SKY Boxes so bring your own card for SKY access) with DVD players and CD radios.

The kItchens are fully equipped and have gas cookers, dishwashers, microwaves, kettles, filter coffee makers, toasters and all cutlery and crockery etc. that may be required.

Further details outdoors

Outside there is the swimming pool and adjacent large BBQ area with one charcoal griddle for each Gite and ample tables and chairs for al fresco dining. The tables and chairs in the BBQ area provide for social gatherings for guests however each Gite has its own outside table and chairs for more private dining if so required.

We provide high quality rigid plastic wine and beer 'glasses' for use in the swimming pool and BBQ areas as we do not allow glass in these areas due to users not wearing shoes in these localities.

There is also a Boules area and ample room for badminton, croquet and football etc. in the half acre field as well as a swing.

We do not provide bicycles but they are available to hire, including delivery to the Gites, on a local basis.

Location description from owner

The Nouvelle-Aquitaine region

Our three properties are situated in a very rural location with wonderful views across the surrounding hills which are covered in vines and depending on the time of year sunflowers, sweetcorn and cereal crops such as wheat and barley. The area is ideal for walkers and cyclists.
Local attractions include Palmyre Zoo and the fantastic beaches at Royan and St. Georges de Didonne . For cultural and shopping expeditions locally within short drives are Jonzac, Pons, Blaye, Saintes, Cognac, Bordeaux, La Rochelle and all of the great French wine production areas such as St Emillion, Margaux, Paulliac and many more. Arcachon is well worth a visit as it has Europe's largest sand dune and the local oysters are world renowned.
Local activities include golf, lake fishing, horse riding, canoeing and go-carting. For adults and children alike a little further afield a visit to Futuroscope at Poitiers is well worth while.
There are 3 supermarkets in Mirambeau, Super U, Lidl and Mutant.

Mirambeau

There are many regular markets in Mirambeau, every Saturday morning, and all of the surrounding towns. Of especial note are the summer night markets at Montendre and Pons. These feature stalls selling local produce, mostly Wine, Pineau and Cognac and also fresh cooked food from baked potatoes to duck breast and frites etc. Normally live music is also on offer at these sessions.

“Charming gite in idyllic surroundings”

Reviewed 17 Sep 2012

A family of five with 2 kids aged 2 and 4. Very peaceful and relaxing location. Pool wasn't quite as big as expected but was actually more than perfect for kids. very welcoming, friendly and accommodating hosts.
