-Chatelaillon Beach is easily the most impressive and popular beach in the region and is characterised by a wide strip of golden sand that is ideal for sunbathing.

-The Aquarium La Rochelle is equally entertaining to both children and adults. This aquarium is one of the best in Europe and features hundreds of species of marine life. Highlights include special exhibits dedicated to sharks and jellyfish. There is also a large car park that is quite convenient for those who have booked a hire car to go with their Saint-Medard holiday accommodation.

-The Vieux Port of La Rochelle is flanked by two impressive 14th century towers. Protected by these walls is a bustling neighbourhood filled with boutique shops, cafes and restaurants that boast stunning views of the port. Visitors will enjoy wandering around imagining what it must have been like when the town was under siege, an occurrence it experienced a few times.

-The Musee Maritime is another of the attractions that makes La Rochelle a favourite among visitors who’ve chosen holiday apartments in Saint-Medard.

The balcony with beautiful views out to the countryside (covered section too for shade or shelter). The cosy but modern kitchen / lounge. We decided to do mostly our own cooking rather than eat out as we enjoyed fitting in to the day to day life here ..,popping out to the market, boulagerie and patisserie, talking with the friendly people of Jonzac. Found the kitchen to cater for all our culinary needs. The main bedroom and bathroom are just lovely... a powerful shower and a large comfy bed. It is so quiet too so perfect for burying your head in a book or just quiet contemplation. Nice walks around the town and parks and countryside. Plenty of unique boutiques. Lots of hidden gems if you take the time to look. We shall definitely be returning. It was just right! Thank you Steve and Sue!

The gardens are a delight and the pool was just amazing. The local bakery was full of gorgeous treats , and we had some lovely authentic meals in the local restaurant where the staff were all so friendly. The nearby village of Auberterre should not be missed, full of gorgeous restaurants and a delightful square to enjoy a drink. Loved canoeing at Auberterre sur Drone, and wandering through the beautiful countryside,and seeing the spectacular fields and fields of sunflowers. Thank you Judy for our lovely stay, just wish we had stayed longer.

We just love it. Allie and Brian are the best hosts you could ever meet,and it is a honour we now class them as friends. The village of Bassac is just minutes away with two great restaurants but as the Gite has a great kitchen we like to cook and sit by the river watching the kingfishers eating our dinner. The garden is fully enclosed so very safe for young children and dogs which are made very welcome. We can't rate this place enough just love it. We will be back next year for sure.
