Description from owner

Description

Font Remy is a 17th Century manor house converted into 4 self-contained houses. All can be rented individually or together (see separate details or contact owners). Rose is a very spacious, well-equipped 5 bedroom house with great character.

Font Remy is located 2km inland from the pretty fishing village of Mortagne-sur-Gironde near the mouth of the Gironde Estuary. Set in 2 acres of walled grounds overlooking the vineyards with its heated, fenced 15m x 8m pool Font Remy is the ideal place for a family holiday. Whether you want to relax by the pool, visit the nearby sandy beaches, stroll into the village port nearby, indulge in the local history, food and wine or be more active you'll find it all in the local area.

The beautiful safe sandy beaches and coves of Meschers, Saint Georges de Didonne and Royan are 15 -20 minutes drive away. The historic towns of Saintes or Pons are both 20 minutes away. Within an hour you can be in the beautiful ancient port of La Rochelle, the famous vineyards of Bordeaux or the city itself.

Mortagne has an ancient fishing heritage and in the pretty harbour area backed by white cliffs you'll find many working fishing boats amongst the yachts. In the port and the main village there are bars and restaurants where you can while away the hours watching the world go by.

The boulangerie and general store are a pleasant 20 minute walk or a 5 minute bike ride from Font Remy through the vineyards. There are many local markets including those at Cozes and Gemozac, where you will find fresh fruit and vegetables, cheeses, meat and plenty of the local seafood.

There is a wide choice of restaurants within easy reach.

Further details indoors

One of the things which distinguish Rose and the other houses at Font Remy from most other gites is the marvellous feeling of space, both inside and out. Rose is a very large character house with lots of exposed beams and stone walls. All ground floor rooms have ceramic tiled floors and first floor rooms have polished wood floors. Large kitchen and adjoining seating area with wood burner. Separate dining room seating 10 with door to rear individual patio area and gas bbq. The huge living room has the original 17th century floor tiles plus satellite tv and cd/dvd. Downstairs twin bedroom with adjoining shower room and WC. Enormous master bedroom with king-sized four-poster bed, en-suite shower room and lovely view over the garden and vineyards. Second double bedroom with wrought-iron king-sized bed and en-suite bathroom. Two twin bedrooms upstairs, one twin downstairs. Large family bathroom with bath, separate shower and WC. Downstairs shower room and toilet.

Further details outdoors

Outside, Rose has a large individual patio, bbq, wooden table and chairs for ten, plus sunloungers. Font Remy is set in a walled garden of 2 acres with views of the vineyards beyond. There are swings, a boules pitch, badminton, a seesaw and plenty of space for ball games. In the games barn, there is a pool table, table tennis, table football, a children's play corner with sofas and a selection of books and games.

Pride of place in the south facing garden is the magnificent heated swimming pool measuring 15m x 8m. There is an additional 3m of roman steps which assist young (and old!) to enter and exit. The shallow end is 1m deep and the deep end 2.4m to allow safe diving. The pool is fenced and situated within view of the individual terrace areas of all the houses so parents can keep an eye on the children.

Please note that the pool is open and heated from May to end September.

“Lovely well-appointed holiday house”

Reviewed 1 Dec 2013

Had a very relaxing holiday in summer at this property. The house is large and has great bathrooms and a very well-equipped kitchen. The south-facing terrace is perfect for lazy lunches and evening bbqs. Lots of places to visit in the area. I particularly liked Talmont and enjoyed the concert on the beach at Royan.
