Vacation Rental Description
This is a quiet away from it all holiday, in a stunning little traditional french village, with the most beautiful little church. But the beauty of this property is that it is set just 3 miles out of the centre of Pons medieval old town, whilst being in a rural location, but with the proximity of the beaches being so close, i.e.a 20 minute drive away to the nearest beach at Saint Georges De Didonne and Meschers. The property has four bedrooms, one with King size bed and a cot, one with a large double bed, and two bedrooms each with 2 twin beds, so the house will sleep 8 people comfortably and a baby. It has 2 brand newly fitted bathrooms in 2011.
All local amenities such as variety of supermarkets, restaurants and bars are only 3 miles away in Pons town centre. The farmhouse is close to Gemozac, Jonzac and Saintes is only 15 minutes away. Cognac with all the brandy tours, only 40 minutes away. Lots of local facilities to keep you occupied, from horse riding and go karting within the immediate area, to the further towns of Royan, Bordeaux and La Rochelle.
The house is surrounded by sunflowers, tobacco, and maize fields and grape vines as far as the eye can see, and a lot of local walks in the immediate village to take in the stunning surrounding countryside. Many vineyards in the region too. If peace, quiet, and privacy are what you seek, then this property is perfect for you.
The property is situated in the area known as the golden triangle. It is the second sunniest region in France, after provence and the Var Region. Temperatures regularly reach high in the 80's in summer.
The location of the property being only 20 minutes from the sea, means it has the best of both worlds. Whilst being situated in a quiet, tiny little rural village, surrounded by sunflowers and vines, but yet close enough to hit the beach for the whole day if you wish.
There is a fabulous little restaurant only a mile away in the next tiny village of Champagnolles. The restaurant is called La Vielle Poste. We can highly recommend their food, but book early because its usually quite a steady little place. Open every night except Monday and Tuesday. Their food is amazing. We have a lovely beautiful decking area in the garden with outdoor table and chairs, garden chairs, sunbeds, barbeque etc. Lots of lovely walks around the property and local village. And the local wine producer, Monsieur Douceaux also runs tours around his wine distillery strictly by request, by phoning first.
MORE PHOTOGRAPHS AVAILABLE BY REQUEST: If you would like further photographs of the property, both inside and out, and the local village and area, please e mail me for further pictures. I have lots, and would be only too happy to e mail these to you if it helps you to decide if this is the right property for your holiday or not.
