Lovely appartment ideally located

  • 5 of 5

We enjoyed our stay in St. Palais. Karen met us and gave us all the information we needed. The apartment is well equipped and very central with a good supermarket, butcher, baker and local market within 50 metres. Car parking in the free car park just over the road (it can be busy when the market is in operation so patience and perseverance is useful!). Lots of lovely beaches and coves within close proximity. St. Palais has a good selection of restaurants (The Globe does good seafood at reasonable prices). The butchers also has a deli section with lots of delicious prepared food. We are looking forward to returning next year and exploring the area further.

A Little Gem

  • 5 of 5

This is a little gem of a holiday apartment which sits in the heart of a pretty beach town. With the bustling daily market at the back and shops, places to eat and the beach at the front, there is plenty to do within a very short walking distance. We loved sitting on the balcony watching the town come to life in the morning. If you want to walk a little further, we recommend the scenic coastal paths to the other nearby beaches. If you have a car, try a trip to nearby Royan with it's fabulous food market, or a little further to the wonderfully medieval La Rochelle, The owners are very welcoming and have provided everything you could possibly need in the flat. The perfect base for a truly relaxing holiday.

A perfect holiday hideaway

  • 5 of 5

We had a lovely time here. The apt is so well situated. Beaches , cafes, market,restaurants are all a stones throw away . The apt itself had everything you could possibly need, even down to beach chairs, cooler bag etc .It was like home from home. Really nice shower and everything working perfectly .Karen was so friendly and welcoming and has a folder prepared with information about places to eat etc. It was beautifully peaceful when we were there . Loved every minute .

Lovely chilled break

  • 5 of 5

Spotlessly clean and very well equipped apartment, perfect for a couple or small family. Very close to all restaurants but quiet at night. Balcony lovely place to sit and watch world go by and I would definitely revisit. Owners very accommodating as we did change our arrival times a couple of times, due to seriously underestimating travel time from Calais !!

Ideal Location in St. Palais

  • 5 of 5

A lovely apartment which is well equipped and maintained and in a great location in the centre of St. Palais.

Only 3 minutes to the nearest beach and a supermarket, boulangerie and market are all within walking distance.

There is a good selection of restaurants and bars in St. Palais and the surrounding area.

Beautiful walks along the coast and lots to explore in the region.

Great location

  • 5 of 5

Great apartment, well decorated, very comfortable and only a few minutes walk to the beach. Ideally located in the centre of St Palais, you can leave the car and walk everywhere. The local boulangerie, supermarkets, chemist etc all within walking distance. Lots of things to do in the local area, if you fancy exploring. Plenty of good restaurants you can walk to, everything you need for a relaxing holiday.

We fell in love with St Palais after holidaying here in 2012 and bought the apartment to enjoy more relaxing holidays. Its just over an hour and a half from where we live in the Poitou Charentes which means it easily accessible for us for weekend breaks.

We just arrive at the apartment park the car and relax, no need to drive anywhere if we don't want to. We do however like to catch the ferry from Royan to the Medoc across the Gironde estuary and visit wineries for some wine tastings!
