About Beverley Condick

We live and work in England but have had our house in France since 2006. We chose this area specifically because of the high hours of sunshine this area enjoys and the proximity to beaches and the wide range of activities it allows - not to mention the food and wine!

We have a 15 year old daughter who has enjoyed many holidays here with us but due to school and exams we find ourselves being unable to enjoy the house as much as we would like at the moment - hence our decision to rent. We felt it such a shame that the house is not enjoyed more. All of our friends and family who have spent time with us at the house agree that it is in such a perfect location.

Beverley Condick purchased this house in 2006

Why Beverley Condick chose Saintes area

Mortagne sur Gironde is one the most striking of the few picturesque ports ,dotted down both sides of the Gironde estuary.

It's advantage over most of the others is the added benefit of a small selection of Restaurants and access to a few shops,that mean you don't have to leave the Port if that's your desire.

The tranquil location is a perfect base for exploring this fascinating area of South West France.

What makes this house unique

Oysters, mussels and wine.

Beaches, rivers, countryside

Far enough south to enjoy good weather and not too far if you want to drive.

One hour from both Bordeaux and La Rochelle Bergerac, is under 2 hrs.

Lovely stay

  • 5 of 5

We had a lovely week in Mortage, which is a fantastic location, close to great beaches on the Gironde (Royan, Meschiers etc). The cottage was perfect for our stay, just the right size, finished to a good specification, and with really nice rooms. It was very clean and I'd guess it's all fairly recently fitted - the remote ceiling fans in the bedrooms were very welcome.

There are some fantastic family bike rides to be enjoyed in the area - flat, segregated from the traffic, and through some really pretty countryside - in addition to more challenging routes for the more experienced road bikers. We were also lucky to see some stunning wildlife, with different birds of prey hunting in the nearby fields (black kites, eagles and, we think, at least one kestrel).

I'd recommend this property to anyone, there's a good chance we'll be rebooking for another visit soon!

Lovely cottage in a great location

  • 5 of 5

We had a lovely week in Mortagne, it is a beautiful little town with everything you need for a relaxed holiday and is driving distance from beaches and good day trips (Cognac is particularly recommended). The cottage is well located, only minutes from the bars, restaurants etc but is very quiet. It has a lovely private garden and is nice and cool inside on a hot day. We would definitely recommend this property.

Super house in a great location - very pretty

  • 5 of 5

We had a super week at the house in Montagne and would absolutely recommend. We are a family (children age 1.5 and 7.5 when we were there) and the layout and location was super. We could stroll out and buy fresh croissants in the morning or have a coffee and there are a nice selection of restaurants dotted around the picturesque small harbour. So pretty. The children liked looking at the boats and there were a family of ducks and ducklings. There are a couple of greens where children were playing games and our older child could join in.

We could easily get to our favourite beach in Meschers Sur Gironde (free parking too!), and there is a lovely market most days there. There was a kids club on the beach which was ideal for our 7 year old – we didn’t need to pre-book and could choose if he went for one hour or longer. Otherwise it’s a safe and family friendly beach with lifeguards – as it’s on the estuary you don’t get those massive Atlantic waves that makes it less relaxing if you’ve got children. We went to Talmont which is very picture postcard, a bit of a tourist haven but very nice – gorgeous shops and restaurants with nice views and an interesting church.

There’s lots to do in the local area but equally you’d be happy staying in Montagne as it’s relaxing and has great facilities.

We liked the layout of the house and it has shutters and two big fans in the bedrooms which really cool you down. We liked the fact that the kitchen is integrated with the living room (very big) so that if you are cooking you aren’t isolated from everyone.

Thanks so much for a lovely week and we hope to book again.

Quiet and lively !

  • 5 of 5

Fantastic ...lovely quiet sleeps ,with all the bustle of a lively quayside right outside.

A morning cuppa was much enjoyed over the road on the sunny bench ,with WiFi and the locals to keep us entertained.

Property is as other reviewers have stated ,we would add that it is ideally placed for visits to Cognac and St-Emilion, to name but two lovely day trips .

Great access to numerous bike trails and local rambling.

Best meal enjoyed just up the road at Le Port Bar/Restaurant .

We would not hesitate to recommend to friends .
