Les Mimosas is a peaceful rural retreat from which to explore the cycling paths, walks, fishing, bird watching and of course sandy beaches. It is fabulous outside of the peak season in the warm months of June and September when you can find yourself walking a beach alone.

Location description from owner

The Nouvelle-Aquitaine region

The Gironde estuary enters the Atlantic at Royan marked by the Phare de Courdouan (Lighthouse) with boat trips from Meschers and Royan. Regular ferry services run from Royan over to the Medoc.

The Parc de l'Estuaire at St Georges de Didonne, is a nature reserve and information park with views of the estuary, walks, cycle paths, an exhibition centre, restaurant and snack bars.

Meschers is lively with shops, restaurants, and markets and boat trips on the estuary from the port. There are walks along the cliff tops and you can visit the two sites of troglodyte cave dwellings Regulus and Matata.

Talmont, is a beautiful little village with its church of Saint Radegonde. Explored on foot to see artists and craftsmen, narrow streets ablaze with flowers and entertainment. The carrelets; traditional fishing cabins with their suspended nets, can be seen from here.

There is much wildlife in the area; foxes, badgers, several varieties of deer and sanglier (wild boar) and a huge array of birds.

Mortagne Sur Gironde, has a picturesque port below and a town above with shops, post office, tourist office. The port area is very lively with numerous events, and fetes together with brocantes, bars and restaurants. There is horse riding and hiring kayaks and boats.

Lorignac

The nearest beautiful sandy beach is Meschers (28km) about 20-25 minutes drive away. Between here and Royan (35km) the estuary is lined with more superb sandy beaches, both lifeguard protected and more secluded sandy coves. Parking is plentiful and free to provide easy access on foot to the beaches themselves.

For surfers this is the Atlantic coast with renown surfing beaches from Cote Sauvage to the north and Soulac on the other side of the Gironde. Water sports abound on the coast.

Local villages regularly have markets selling local produce and brocantes during the summer season.

Nearby, Port Maubert has a restaurant and walk down to the edge of the estuary.

Vitrezay nature reserve is a marvellous day out. Paths lead out into the marais through the wetlands with observation hides. It has an exhibition centre and throughout the season are various different entertainments and special events. There is a restaurant-bar and you can take a boat trip over to Pauillac, with a visit to a famous wine chateau with a meal.

There are a number of activities including fishing in various forms, canoeing, sailing or going out in a sea kayak. Trips out on a gabare and you can even rent a genuine carrelet by the hour.

Just south of here is Blaye, at the start of the Gironde Estuary, with some superb Chateaux.

Bordeaux itself is just 50 minutes drive away and is a beautiful city to visit with many fine shops and restaurants. Sainte is a picturesque town just 40 minutes drive with a Roman amphitheatre, shops and restaurants. Cognac is a similar distance with visits to the distilleries available.

There are three 18-hole golf courses in Charente-Maritime.
The Prée Golf Course at La Rochelle, the Maine Gaudin course near Royan, at Saint-Palais and the Louis Rouyer course at Saintes. In addition to these three courses, there are six further courses here – three 9-hole courses at Rochefort and on the Ile de Ré and Ile d’Oléron and as many 6-hole courses at La Jarne, Montendre and Saint Porchaire.

“Exceeded expectations”

Reviewed 11 Aug 2013

We had a really wonderful time at the villa - it was better than I had expected. The area is so pretty and quiet. The villa is clean, and to a very high standard. The pool is warm and just the right size with children. Good local amenities.

“Beautiful villa set in lovely countryside”

Reviewed 7 Aug 2012

“beautiful house”

Reviewed 13 Jun 2012

We have just returned from our holiday in Les Mimosas, it was excellent. The house is beautiful and the grounds superb. the house is very well equipped with everything you need, the bed linen was clean and fresh and the towels were large and soft. We went with our daughter,son-in-law and 3 year old grandson so we had plenty of room to spread out. The swimming pool is large and was warm, there are pool toys,floats and body boards which our grandson had good use of them everyday. We would book this house again and would recommend it. Don't expect too much of the village.
