About the Owner

We moved to SW France from London in 2002 with our two young children. We live in the countryside, 1 hour from Meschers, but are always availabel if you need us and we will see you into our houses.

We had a successful antiques and collectables business, but craved the quieter life for ourselves and our children. As Carl was a builder before, it was no problem for us to do up our own houses.

We still love going to brocante markets and shops and continue our passion for old things by kitting out our houses and our home.

Guestbook comments from the owner

What a wonderful place! The cottage was very clean and tidy, with a well equipped kitchen and a heavenly shower. Situated about 5 minutes from the town centre and the beach - placement couldn't be better. The area is beautiful and there is lots to see and do. Shelley met us there with the key and showed us everything we needed to know for the week. She was ever so friendly and helpful. We would stay there again in a heartbeat and would certainly encourage our friends to stay! Tiggy 12



We have just got back from a week at Rose Tremiere. The bungalow was as described in the ad, perfect for myself, my partner and our two young children. Hollyhock.



The port and the daily markets were also a good source of entertainment during both day and evening.The bar on the beach allowed the boys to play late into the evening whilst the adults relaxed with a glass of something. Steve

Characterful and Convenient

  • 5 of 5

Rose Tremiere is a characterful property perfectly situated in a quiet residential corner of Meschers between the shops, the port and the beach. It is well appointed, kept spotlessly clean and we took great pleasure in eating our meals below the trees in the garden. We enjoyed lots of walking nearby but also found it easy to drive to the many interesting places further along the coast in both directions.

Owner's Response: Another great review for Rose Tremiere, these guests enjoyed the house and the garden. (nb the guests that stayed the previous week and left us a bad review because of the dogs next door failed to mention that they had two dogs with them)

Good location but....

  • 2 of 5

Good location spoilt by dogs in adjoining garden who, if they were out, barked every time we moved.

Small house, quite cave like, which was clearly kitted out to a very tight budget. Beds not great, but it did have wifi and a TV.

Owner's Response: We have many repeat bookings, so must be doing a lot of things right - read our other reviews.The house is advertised as a small house, I wouldn't call it 'cave like' at all. Never had complaints about the beds, but I am buying new mattresses for next season anyway. Rose Tremiere has a great location, near to beach, shops, market, restaurants etcs I'm sorry if next door's dogs disturbed you. I did say that if you have ANY problems whatsoever to contact me - unfortunately this was not the case. If you had done so I'd have contacted the neighbours immediately to complain about their dogs.

A relaxing holiday in a comfortable gite.

  • 5 of 5

We have just had a wonderful, relaxing holiday based at Rose Tremiere, situated in a peaceful location in Meschers. Shelley provided lots of useful information about the cottage and the local area in advance of our visit and also when she met us on arrival - it was good to have that personal contact. The property was clean and equipped as described on the website. The garden was an added bonus and the shade of the large tree invaluable in the high temperatures we experienced. It really is within walking distance of the beach, shops and port - we went for days without moving the car.

Rochefort (about 45mins / 1hour away) was a good day out. The walk to Talmont with all of the birds in the marsh area was also great - for a cooler day as there is no shade.

We would definitely stay here again if we return to this part of France. Thank you Shelley for such a warm welcome and a lovely base for our holiday.

Wonderful Relaxing Holiday

  • 5 of 5

The property is situated in a lovely Small French village, with great walking access to a stunning beach, lovely port area with restaurants and great views from the top of the road over the River Gironde. Supermarket/Petrol also 1 minute away. We have stayed here 4 years in a row and currently planning our 5th return. The village is away from the main stream tourist areas, but Royan can be accessed easily by bus (20mins) for 1.60 euro if you want to leave the car behind.

Lovely clean property, with great customer service.

A peaceful French holiday home!

  • 5 of 5

This is a property that has everything you could need for a short holiday or longer term. All the equipment in the kitchen that you need, a very comfortable double bed & good bathroom facilities. We have spent 4 holidays here (2016 already booked) and cannot recommend it enough. The garden is an added bonus to idle a few hours away in. A supermarket is within walking distance, bakers and village life with restaurants, takeaway food and stationers, etc., are also a short walk away. The Port of Meschers, which also has restaurants is nearby as well as 2 beaches. You really don't need a car if you want to completely relax, but if you feel the need, there are numerous places to visit within a reasonably distance.

The booking process with Shelley is trouble free and any questions are answered quickly. All in all, Rose Tremiere is the ideal stay in Meschers and I promise, you will not be disappointed with this choice of accommodation.

Owner's Response: Thank you for the super review. We hope we've hit the mark with Rose Tremiere, a lovely 2 bedroomed house. As this review states, easy walking distance to the beach, commerce and restaurants. Lots to do and see in the area, or relax in the garden. We must be doing something right as we have many guests who return year after year.

Location

From the Owner

We love Meschers as it is a small town by the sea. Everything is easily accessible on foot - the beach, shops, bars, restaurants, supermarket, pleasure port and fresh produce market. It is a great base for exploring the area too, there is so much to see and do if you want to go out and about. If not, it's a lovely part of the world to wander - pine forests, cave dwellings in the cliff face, or just sit and have a drink and watch the world go by. Easy access by road (A16 motorway is 30 mins away), Bordeaux and La Rochelle airports.
