BEAUTIFUL RESTORED COUNTRY FARMHOUSE NEAR ROYAN

Photos and Description of this 5 bedroom holiday farmhouse in Saint-Simon - Farmhouse in Meursac

18th Century Stone Built Farmhouse Near Royan sleeps 14.

The house is situated in the countryside amongst sunflower fields and vineyards in the small hamlet of Les Epeaux de Meursac.

It is 18 km from Royan and the roman town of Saintes, and is a 15 minute drive away from the nearest beaches at Meschers and 5 minutes away from the nearest restaurant and shops.

The coastline is known as the coast of Beauty in France and there are numerous beaches and coves as well as the famous 40 kilometres of white sandy beaches backed by pine forests at the côte sauvage in La Palmyre.

The historic and lively town of La Rochelle is just 40 minutes away and a visit to Il de Ré across the bridge from La Rochelle is a must.

We are surrounded by numerous little villages typical of the Charente Maritime area, and classed as amongst the most beautiful villages in France like Talmont and Mornac sur Seudre. Bordeaux and Futuroscope in Poitiers are easily accessible and just 1hr and 20 minutes away.

Location très sympathique, mais...

  • 2 out of 5
Maison fort sympathique, mais problèmes de propreté déjà signalés par un autre locataire. Absence d'autocuiseur, de CDthèque, et de vidéothèque quoique figurant dans le descriptif de l'annonce.

De très belles vacances

  • 4 out of 5
Gite spacieux avec beaucoup de charme ( il y a même des arbres fruitiers dans le jardin). Bien équipé et rénové. Les lits étaient faits à l'arrivée ce qui nous a été fort appréciable. La voisine qui s'occupe du gîte est gentille et efficace. Le gîte est bien situé pour découvrir les différentes plages de la région. Petits bémols : les fenêtres d'une des chambres du haut sont très basses et non sécurisées pour de jeunes enfants. Route ( peu passante) au bord du gîte.
Notre séjour fut fort agréable et nous comptons bien y revenir.

Cozy and charming!

  • 5 out of 5
We stayed in this charming, cozy house with friends for two wonderful weeks last summer. We were two Finnish families with 5 kids, and the house was absolutely perfect for us, just the right size for our nine person's group, not too big, but big enough that everyone could get their own space when needed. (With 5 noisy children that was often needed.) From the very first moment we saw the house we fell in love, it was decorated so warmly and beautifully, with lots of lovely items, it was just like a real home! And even much better than in pictures. Kitchen equipment was good and everything worked well. The gateway to the house was a bit narrow for the MB Vito we had, but a good driver manages quite well with it.

The house was a bit dusty but we didn't mind that, it was kind of part of the old atmosphere... Everything worked nicely, and the neighbour lady that took care of the house was charming and so kind to us, she had bought some good variety of food that we asked for in advance. She explained everything and we got some good advises from her. Although she didn't speak much English, but I could manage with my poor French.

I LOVED the bread van that went by every day, although it took a while before we found out which time that was. I can't count how many breads we bought from it... Oh, and the restaurant in Meursac is a gem! We loved driving around the countryside on Sundays spotting country markets in many villages, oh what finds! Oh the little narrow roads through variety of little villages, such charming places everywhere.

I truly recommend this place to all that want to stay in a quiet little French village, and who don't need swimming pool (a public pool is in village nearby so that was convenient) or too modern or fancy house. If you want rural, cozy, simple charmy and easy going house, this is the a perfect choice!

vacances en famille, 89 et 95

  • 5 out of 5
séjour en famille dans la campagne Charentaise. Cette ferme est vraiment belle et spacieuse. Nous étions 8 et chacun avait son espace à vivre sans gêner les autres. Maison bien équipée, dommage que certain locataire ne respecte pas la maison et laisse les lieux pas très propre, la voisine qui gère la location est très discrète et bien sympathique.

Un vrai coup de coeur !!!

  • 5 out of 5
Merveilleux séjour en famille dans la campagne Charentaise. Cette ferme est vraiment belle et spacieuse. on est tout de suite sous le charme et l'on s'y sent bien immédiatement. Nous étions 8 et chacun avait son espace à vivre sans gêner les autres. Le village est très agréable et le dépaysement est total. Une petite demie heure de route pour aller à la mer, c'était parfais. Je recommanderais volontié cet endroit à ma famille et à mes amis et peut-être même y reviendrais-je une prochaine fois. A noté aussi que la voisine qui gère la location est charmante et très discrète.

EXCELLENT RAPPORT QUALITE PRIX

  • 5 out of 5
Il devait y avoir 4 chambres à l étage en fait seulement 3 et une au rez de chaussé , surement changement d aménagement mais cela aurait été bien de remettre à jour.Cadre très agréable , maison bien équipée . T.Bon accueil . Table de cuisine plus grande permettrait de déjeuner à 8 dans la cuisine..Endroit en pleine campagne ,assez isolé , tranquille à 20 mn du bord de mer , du zoo de la Palmyre ...Les propriétaires font super confiance car la maison est décorée avec plein de vieux objets( casserole cuivre , tableaux.....° comme si vous y habitiez
