An inspiring collection of properties chosen for their character, luxury and heritage.


This attractive farmhouse next to the owner’s home has been carefully restored to retain its traditional charm and character

This attractive farmhouse next to the owner’s home has been carefully restored to retain its traditional charm and character. The spacious interior has cool rooms, whilst the typical farmhouse dining kitchen is well-equipped with modern appliances. From this room, patio doors open on to the terrace and poolside. This is ideal for families, having enclosed shady gardens with swings and a private swimming pool. Set in peaceful countryside, within walking distance of the sleepy village of Saint Simon, the area is a delight to discover. Colourful markets abound in the nearby villages and wine-tasting of the local ‘Pineau’ aperitif can be found everywhere. With the fine sandy beaches of Meschers and the fascinating port of Royan just twenty-five minutes drive, the location is perfect. Other attractions are the historical city of Saintes, just a short drive and the bustling sea-side resort of La Palmyre with its zoo, water park and marvellous beaches - a haven for families with children. An ideal holiday base.

Approximate distance to Bordeaux airport is 83 km.

    The cottage is so much better than the description listed on the site, the garden is impressive and the pool is simply wonderful.There is a lot of outside space and the pool is alarmed which is reassuring when you have children. The owners are kind and helpful and very informative there are lots of information leaflets and books provided to make your stay more interesting. The owners English is very good for those who are not as confident with their French but they help you with pronouncing words you can't help but try and speak French. The local town has a large supermarket which is very handy and the roads are very good for cycling especially with children. The house is clean and well maintained, I didn't mind the Internet being a little difficult as it gave us time away from electronics and spend time as a family which is the main reason we went there. We would stay here again.

    A nice and pleasant holiday villa to base yourself , however the description given is a little misleading as the owners are next door to you and you are aware of there presence. the layout is rather quirky and the stairs provides a challenge along with the downstairs toilet which is the only WC in the property.The surrounding properties can be noisy as we witnessed on two occasions due to drumming sessions. Also the charge for cleaning of 80 euro's was steep and confusing as you would not expect to be charged by a hotel company when checking out so maybe an all inclusive price be included when making the booking ? But given all those comments we as a family had an enjoyable time at the La Tonnelle.
