The Owner purchased this house in 2008

Why The Owner chose Saintes area

We love France. We've gone there on our holidays over the last fifteen years. We normally went to the Mediterranean but when we decided to buy a property, we wanted somewhere we could travel to by car as well as flying. We discovered the Charente Maritime and were amazed to find that it is the second sunniest region of France after the Med. The countryside is beautiful farmland - sunflowers and vines. The beaches along the Atlantic beat the Mediterranean any day and it is only 5 hours drive from Roscoff. It is just an hour's drive from the Airports of La Rochelle and Bordeaux and 3 hours from Nantes. It is ideal for walking and cycling and is near some really interesting places.

What makes this house unique

While staying at our property we enjoy relaxing and playing in the beautiful garden. The pool is fantastic. We love cooking outdoors and sharing a meal with friends on the patio long into the evening.

We love the convenience of the property. It is in a hamlet of houses but completely private. Yet it is only a mile to the nearest supermarket.

There are many very reasonably priced restaurants nearby.

The beach at Mershers is only 20 mins drive. Every night during July and August there is fantastic live music at Tina's restaurant which is situated on ( and spills out on to) the beach.

Guestbook comments from the owner

Hi Margy

Hope you’re well.

We got back from Gemozac late last night after a fantastic, relaxing week at Elizabeth. The house was great – lots of space and great location. We had everything we needed from the pool and ping pong to a well equipped kitchen (little used!).

Would definitely recommend you and on our list of places to return to!

Many thanks
