About the Owner

The beach! We love the beach, barely 4 kms. We chose this area for its excellent climate, offering warm, lazy spring & autumn days & long hot summers. There is something for every age group in the general area, the beaches being a particular attraction. We bought this huge old place in 1995 & restored it ourselves.Old properties, dating to the 17th century. Staff available if there is anything you need.

Guestbook comments from the manager

Dear Catherine, Just a few words to say that we really enjoyed our holiday with you. Your staff were helpful (no English was a bit of a shock at first!) and friendly and we thought the whole area was excellent. Particularly important to us was secure parking, so we appreciated that as well as the sweet little house. We'll be back ! Guy & Jeanie

Wonderfully charming cottage, great location.

  • 5 of 5

Charming cottage with all we needed set in wonderful grounds. Well equipped for my rambunctious children! Very safe and secure, local to fab beaches and attractive historical towns. Would highly recommend it, and we can't wait to come over again during the summer.

an excellent holiday

  • 5 of 5

This property is in a small "complex" of similar properties, all very quaint and pretty. We fell in love with it immediately. Beaches (sandy) are a short distance and the pool was to die for. Shops nearby, but quite quiet. The property is quite simple, actually, so it won't suit you if you are looking for a stream-lined bang-up-to-date thing, but it was perfect for us and we recommend it.

Excellent

  • 5 of 5

We have just returned from France (family of 4) where we had a very good holiday at Rochebonne (Roche), in a cottage that is part of a chateau domaine. Extremely good location with beach not far, warm and clean pool, big grounds and little garden just for the cottage. We got friendly with the neighbours (indeed we have arranged to meet them there next year) and had a great time

Location

From the Owner

We have always been interested in history, and this property is loaded with it. Nazis occupied the Chateau during WWII. The original property was much bigger and was burnt to the ground during the French Revolution. We have kept as much as we possibly can of the old features and have worked hard at retaining the traditional rural character of the place. You will not find stream-lined bathrooms and kitchens here, though there is of course everything you need for a wonderful holiday - sunshine included, all being well !

Notes:

  • Notes on accommodation: All the cottages are within high stone walled garden of one and a half acres. This provides privacy and security. All of the cottages have wood burning stoves in case it is chilly in the spring or autumn . All windows are double glazed and the properties insulated. We sometimes accept a pet (by prior arrangement only) in low or mid season at a supplement of 150 euros pw. The pool is solar heated, open sometime around end Ap/early May to late Sept. Please note that because there are three 2-bedroom cottages, and two 3-bedroom cottages, and only one calendar, it is not possible for me to update availability unless everybody has booked exactly the same weeks. The 4 bedroom cottage & Chateau charts correct because there is just one chart for each.Note that prices in cottages are for 2 people per bedroom and we charge supplement of 150 pw for 1 extra (regardless of age), likewise a cat or a dog which is by prior arrangement only in low season. Big safe grounds & kiddy play areas. Outside: Secure car park is well away from the children's play area which has play-castle, sand pit, swings, slides and loads of space to play and run around. The 16 x 8m swimming pool is solar heated, decked and fenced in a wonderful sun trap. There are plenty of sun beds and sun shades. Table-tennis for non-serious games, also table football, and books.
