About Maggie Hill

We bought the property in 1994 and spent several years upgrading the cottage next door and renovating the main house, I am retired from the business world and live in the UK in a little village in the Rutland corner of Northamptonshire. I am now widowed but still spend quite a large part of my year in Civrac and am always pleased to welcome friends and family to enjoy this lovely place with me. My grandchildren just adore coming here with the lovely swimming pool being the main highlight !

I am happy to rent the main house - which is very much a family home - for just a few weeks each year but the cottage next door is available all year round.

Maggie Hill purchased this house in 1994

Why Maggie Hill chose Saint-Fort-sur-Gironde

I hope you will enjoy a very comfortable stay in Les Roses Tremieres (which means The Hollyhocks) and also this lovely part of France as much as we all do.

What makes this house unique

Civrac is a quiet little hamlet where you can buy fresh local eggs and honey and red, white and rose wines, Champagne style sparkling wines and Pineau ( the Charente aperitif). All these within two minutes from home ! The little town of St. Fort with co-op, bakers, hairdresser,ATM, etc. is less than a mile down the hill. There is a small market twice a week.

There are many lovely walks and of interesting places to visit nearby. Stunning sandy beaches are a short drive away. All in all, this is a great centre for a relaxing holiday in France.

Guestbook comments from the owner

Our second holiday at Les Roses was as wonderful as the first. Two weeks of peace and quiet. The house is extremely well equipped - a real home from home. My favourite part was the vegetable garden .... the tomatoes were sublime !!!



The pool is warm and just the right size. - Maggie was very responsive when we had a problem. Soon solved !

Beautiful welcoming house.

  • 5 of 5

With beautiful views, spacious house, delicious vegetables from the garden and stunning swimming pool, what's not to love? The kids thoroughly enjoyed the pool, especially in the evening with the pool lights on, as well as walking the mile to the village shop for ice cream and croissants.

Maggie was there for advice before and after our stay and made us feel very welcome. I hope we can return one day!

Idyllic

  • 5 of 5

We had a wonderful 2 weeks in Civrac. The house is in a really tranquil hamlet on top of a hill so there are amazing views over to the Gironde estuary. The house is really tastefully decorated and with good facilities and is a cool refuge when the sun gets too hot. Highlight for the kids was the pool, where they spent most of the holiday !

A few days we were at the nearby beaches, including the massive cote sauvage which is a long Atlantic beach with some great waves. Nearby towns were historic and delightful we visited numerous interesting markets and did some wine and cognac tasting.

The house has 2 barbeque areas and numerous outside seating areas to stay out late and dine under the stars.

It is about a 15min walk through the vineyards to get to the bakery in the mornings, which is a wonderful walk to start the day.

Owner could not have been more helpful and the only negative point I can make is that the time went by so fast! Will definitely be back.

Great house with amazing views

  • 5 of 5

We shared the house with my in laws and had a wonderful holiday. It was slightly larger than we needed but it was lovely to have so much space. The house its self is superb with light and airy rooms, and the garden has loads of hidden areas where I could hide from the family and read my book.

The kids never left the pool, but it was easy to be on life guard duty as the view from the pool area gave infinity views over the valley.

The little village is a 15minutes walk away down a country lane and has a great boulangère - i have eaten my own body weight in baguette and croisants

Had such a lovely relaxing time hope to come back next year.
