Location

The property is situated in rolling countryside in a hamlet of 4 homes, 2 km from Saint-Thomas-de-Conac with its café, butcher, baker, shop and post office.

Saint-Thomas is located near the pretty fishing villages of Port Maubert and Vitrezay, on the longest, widest estuary in Europe, the majestic Gironde. Bordeaux is 1 hour away. The nearest large supermarket is in Mirambeau, about 6 km away.

The award winning, beautiful sandy beaches and coves of Meschers, Saint-Georges-de-Didonne and Royan are less than 25 minutes away.

A short drive will take you to the wonderfully interesting towns of Cognac, Saintes and Pons.

Within an hour you can be in the ancient port of La Rochelle with its airport and Ryanair and Flybe flights.

There is so much more to do and see in this area than just playing on the beach all day, from Cognac and Pineau des Charentes tastings, visits to the Roman amphitheatre or troglodyte caves, or a visit to the new Dinosaur Park. The area is teeming with wildlife and there are a number of nature reserves, with a new one close by at Vitrezay of over 175 acres.

Within a 15 minutes drive there is a huge variety of restaurants, ranging from an exclusive Château, harbour side pizzerias and local sea food specialty restaurants.

Golf at Royan, Saintes and Cognac, tennis, horse riding in Saint-Thomas, cycling with special tracks for mountain bikes, sailing, windsurfing, bird watching and fishing.

Visit La Palmyre Zoo, Europe's largest private zoo; also in Royan there is the Les Jardins du Monde which has one of the largest orchid greenhouses in the world.

The famous cognac houses of Rémy Martin, Martell, Hennessy, Otard etc all have guided tours and tastings.

Airports: 1 hour to Bordeaux, 1¼ hours to La Rochelle.

Reviews

« We have had a lovely holiday here - house is comfortable and well equipped. We enjoyed walking locally and generally relaxing by the pool - could easily have spent another week here! Many thanks. »  The P Family - Surrey, UK

« We have had a very relaxing and enjoyable holiday. The house is very clean and comfortable with everything you could want. In fact, we have spent more time here than planned, our teenage sons loved the pool, bikes and have already recommended the gîte to people. »  Robert family - West Midlands

« After a journey that took almost 3 hours longer than planned with it raining until we got to the bottom of the hill, we arrived a little deflated and unsure what to expect for the next 2 weeks.  However, within 5 minutes of walking into the house it was all forgotten, the little extras in the fridge were very welcome. The house itself was very comfortable and absolutely spotless throughout. We spent a large part of the fortnight by the pool which was enjoyed by us all. We visited Royan, Cognac (pretty, but everything shuts on a Monday). The beach at Vergnes was really good, not too busy and ideal for families. The indoor swimming pool at Jonzac was also very good for a cloudy/rainy day. Thanks for a lovely 2 weeks. »  Matthew, Deb, Joe, Sam and Max - West Sussex, UK

« We had a lovely time at your property - thank you. A beautiful spot and a lovely house, the kids had a great time in the pool - we would come again. »  Catherine, David, Laura and James C - Nottingham, UK

« We had absolutely everything we look for in a holiday - privacy, peace, space, a pool, luxury, elegance and more... the bicycles were great, but could you have the hills removed?  It is a lovely spot for a relaxing French holiday. We enjoyed dashing out to greet the fish van and the bread van, I hope these things don't die out completely. Further afield the zoo is wonderful and more than enough for one visit. The White Horse is in safe hands and the proprietor tries hard to please - his steaks were incredible. »  Nigel, Carole, Sam and Amelia - Reading, UK

« We found it was really pretty here. The pool and the big garden were great... in the house the things were beautiful. We children had a lot of fun in the pool. »  The R Family - Stuttgart, Germany

« We have enjoyed a lovely week here, super weather in loads of beautiful countryside = heaven. The house is gorgeous, we have been playing boules, table tennis and generally relaxing in this idyllic spot. Thank you for making everything so welcoming, we will heartily recommend the place and hopefully return soon. »  A R & Family - Hampshire, UK
