Whether you plan to visit for a couple's retreat, a family holiday or a large group event, you will find HomeAway offers many choices of Saint-Simon holiday villas. Whether you want a quiet break taking in the tranquility of the local area or you're ready for shopping and beach activities, the variety of holiday villas in Saint-Simon will suit you perfectly.

Things to do

Whilst Saint-Simon is a rural community it is by no means lacking in things to do, both in the local area and just a short drive away. As with many rural communities, a car is a great asset to help you see as much of the local area as possible and allow you to venture further than you might if you didn't have your own transport. When you rent a cosy holiday cottage in Saint-Simon you open the door to quiet nights and fascinating days.

-Saintes markets are a good excuse to visit the pretty town with its Roman architecture. There are Romanesque churches to discover and explore while you day trip from your Saint-Simon holiday villa. If you are particularly interested in Roman ruins, the L’Arc of Germanicus as well as Les Arenas are both popular attractions that are well worth a visit.

-Shopping in Royan or spending a day at the beach there is a great way to wile away a summer's day. Just a 30 minute drive or so will have you taking in the sandy white beaches and cooling off in the ocean. There are a large variety of stores and cafes to ensure that your day is spent relaxing from start to finish.

-Visit the Musée des Arts du cognac (Maco) in Cognac to find out the history of this famous drink. The tourist offices in the area can provide you with a booklet titled 'Les Bonness Adresses du Cognac'. This booklet contains information on all the local producers of Cognac who offer tours. There are many great Cognac houses that will allow you to taste and purchase this drink that has made the town so famous throughout the world. Cognac is just a short drive inland from Saint-Simon

-Swimming pools are located in the local area if you don't feel like driving to the beach. Within about 15 minutes of the Saint-Simon area you will find local swimming pools where you can cool off and work on your tan. Kids especially love the pool and it can be a fun family outing where you know everyone is safe and enjoying themselves.

-The forest and fields of the local area are unspoilt and a charm to explore. Some holiday villas in Saint-Simon come complete with bicycles to allow you to explore the local area. You will come across pretty villages, windmills and wildlife while you cycle. This is a beautiful area of the country to see while the wind whistles through your hair.

The weather in Saint-Simon

Like the rest of France, Saint-Simon enjoys a fairly temperate climate for most of the year. The warmest months for visiting are from May to September, with temperatures reaching as high as 28°C. If you are planning a holiday with a lot of beach time, it would be best to visit in these warmer months. During this time water temperature will be at its warmest. Should you be looking for a cosy break in Saint-Simon in the colder times of the year, November to February are your best choices.

Getting to Saint-Simon

Most visitors to Saint-Simon will likely take the Eurostar to Paris or even catch a short flight with popular carriers such as EasyJet or British Airways. The closest train stations to your Saint-Simon holiday accommodation are Royan or Saintes. From there it is just a 30 minute drive or so to reach your destination. Car hire outlets are plentiful at all airports though these should be booked ahead of time.

We were all very impressed with the size and layout of every room,it is an incredibly spacious and well decorated home. The outside I area was perfect, we enjoyed lying on sun loungers by the pool every day which is a good size and not overlooked. The house is on a quiet road and has a lovely boulongerie 5min drive away. I would definitely recommend people to come and stay here as we all had a fantastic week away and the house was the main reason. Very good value for money too.

It really is a well equipped and spotlessly clean house where every possible need is catered for. The pool is a delight and we enjoyed feeding daisy and Rosie the chickens every day and eating out in the garden. We would definitely recommend this property and hope to return in the future.

The house had everything we needed, with its own private pool which was just the right size. Location was excellent in the heart of Jarnac so not too far to walk to the local shops and restaurants. The larger shops were just a short drive away. The river was close by which offered kayaking for the kids and was just lovely to walk by. I would thoroughly recommend the property for families.
