A lovely home with a fabulous location

  • 5 out of 5
My family (me, wife, two children age 6 and 9) stayed here in May 09. It's a nice house with good facilities. The area is lovely and quiet, yet only 5-10 minutes walk to the centre of St Palais. The real bonus is that it genuinely is only 50m to the beach. It's a lovely sandy beach but with some rocky outcrops with rock-pools and little crabs to seek out. We'll be back.

les fenêtres ouvertes on entend la mer

  • 4 out of 5
nous avons trouvé la maison idéalement placée dans un joli quartier et avons pu profiter du superbe chemin côtier des douaniers pour nous baigner à la plage du bureau très tranquille en cette saison ! Ayant beaucoup apprécié l'accueil, la maison, la région et le climat, nous ne manquerons pas de vous recontacter pour un éventuel prochain séjour à St Palais, petite ville pour laquelle personnellement j'ai eu un vrai coup de cœur ! idem pour les somptueux couchers de soleil sur la mer et la côte ! A bientôt j'espère

GITE AT ST PALAIS SUR MER.

  • 4 out of 5
What a lovely place. The description of the location didn't do it justice. You can see the sea from the gate of the gite and it is, literally 50 yards down the road to a lovely beach.
You do have to then go down quite a few steps to the beach, so could be difficult for disabled or those with very small children. There are lovely walks in both directions along the cliff path, turning left takes you into the town of St Palais which is very nice. The gite itself is good, although quite small (perfect for two - could be a little cramped with 4 or 5) all on one level and has everything required in the way of equipment. Nice little paved area at the front is perfect for barbeques in the evening, hidden from the road (which is very quiet anyway) and just down 2 steps from the living area.
All in all, this was a lovely place to spend a week. The gite made a perfect base both for the beach and exploring the surrounding area. The weather was beautiful whilst we were there, which added to our enjoyment and we would certainly recommend it - particularly for couples. We hope to go again !

très agréable séjour

  • 4 out of 5
C'est la 4ième année que nous venons avec toujours autant de plaisir.
Malgré un temps moins ensoleillé que les années précédentes, nous avons pu profiter des deux plages et nous régaler de la vue sur l'estuaire et l'océan.
Les nuits fraîches nous ont permis de tester les chauffages individuels installés dans les deux chambres, ils sont efficaces et apportent un confort supplémentaire bien appréciable.

Jolie maison mais peu de confort

  • 2 out of 5
Cette maison ne manque pas de charme et les propriétaires sont vraiment charmants mais il vaut mieux louer la maison à la belle saison. Idéalement située à deux pas de la plage (on voit la mer au bout de la rue), cette petite maison manque quand même un peu de confort quand le temps ne s'y prête pas. Il n'y a pas de chauffage dans les chambres. Bon à savoir quand on vient avec des enfants.

Owner's Response: Cette année nous avons installé un bon radiateur à bain d'huile (dont un avec ventilateur pour une chauffe rapide) dans chaque pièce!

Plage du Platin

The villa is 50 yards from our quiet beach, plage du Platin, in a protected area of St. Palais with no through traffic. The town is 4 miles north of Royan in Charente Maritime and 50 miles south of La Rochelle; the largest European Zoo at La Palmyre is 6 miles away. The Bordeaux vineyards can be reached by car-ferry from Royan (the crossing takes about 15 minutes). St. Palais is an ideal small holiday resort for children with its main beach, our much quieter beach just below the villa and many miles of bicycle paths through the forest.
