Location description from owner

The Nouvelle-Aquitaine region

From Royan you can take the ferry across the Gironde estuary. The 'dune du pilat', the largest sand dune in Europe is within easy reach and well worth a visit. The region is full of historic sites and is famous for its proximity to the route of the pilgrims from northern France to Santiago de Compstello in northern Spain. Within an hour's drive are the historic towns of Saintes, Cognac and Bordeaux each offering their own charm and individuality. The region is famous for its cuisine, with many wonderful seafood restaurants offering freshly caught local seafood. The port at La Tremblade is lined with cafes and restaurants - you will be spoilt for choice!

The region produces some of the best wines in France, the local 'producteurs' are only too pleased for you to visit and enjoy a tasting session.

Saint Fort sur Gironde

Charente Maritime offers something of interest for all ages, from activities such as water sports,go-karting, walking, cycling, horse riding or visiting places of historic interest.

For those with relaxation in mind, there are several beautiful beaches and coves nearby, some which have water sport activitiies available for hire. North of Royan on the Atlantic is the Cote Sauvage which has 15 kms of unspoilt sandy beaches for wind surfing and body boarding. There are designated areas for the the naturists out there.

The zoo at La Palmyre is a must for all the family. Alternatively fishing, tennis, the pool complex at Jonzac, cognac brandy and vineyard tours with tasting, are all within a short drive. Within the hour you can be in La Rochelle, an ancient port or discovering the famous vinyards of Bordeaux.

“fabulous traditional home with great facilities”

Reviewed 11 Nov 2015

We stayed for a 2 week relaxing break with young children and older family. All had a great time. Lovely position on the edge of a perfect little village, so was lovely and quiet but really close to the local bakery - order your croissants the night before if you want more than a dozen! - delicious. The house was perfect, simple but will everything we needed. the huge patio, barbeque and big lawns meant we were never indoors and the swimming pool is just delightful. Owners are very friendly if on site and great with the kids. We will be back!

“Just Fabulous..... Will come again”

Reviewed 9 Aug 2014

What an amazing holiday!! The best yet.... It was everything we dreamed of and more. And .... NO mosquitoes!! The area is FAB, something for everyone. The beach at St George is wonderful and so safe for children. The pool was the best as it was always warm. The owners were very welcoming and had lots of good tips on where to eat etc. We will definitely be booking for 2015 !!

“Beautiful old house in a beautiful area.”

Reviewed 20 Jan 2014

We had a great holiday made even better by the owners hospitality.The only downside was the mosquitos, but apparently they had not sprayed the Estuary last year, so hopefully not always such a problem.
