Make a holiday rental villa or property in Saintes, France your home away from home

Saintes, France, is a magnificently grand town which stands proudly on the banks of the Charente River in the Charente-Maritime department of western France. Founded in around 20BC, and still showing some of its finest Roman monuments, which have been unbelievably well preserved, Saintes has a great amount to offer visitors.

Things to do in Saintes, France

Touring the streets of Saintes is like visiting a huge, open-air museum. There are some magnificent sights to be seen throughout the town from the vast triumphal Arch of Germanicus which stands on the river bank to the Church of Saint-Eutrope. The remnants of the Roman amphitheatre, aqueduct and town ramparts are also well worth visiting from a Saintes property rental. There is plenty of tourist information available to inform you on both the remarkable churches and historical monuments which adorn Saintes, available at the Musee Archeologique, Musee du Presidial and Musee de l’Echevinage.

Lovers of classical music will be thrilled by the Festival de Saintes held in July. A holiday rental property in Saintes in perfectly positioned to take full advantage of the week long program of performances, concerts and orchestral performances which occur in the many churches throughout the town. Young musicians come from all over the world to perform in the Festival de Saintes, and holiday accommodation does become scarce, so book your property in Saintes early for a July visit.

The Charente River which flows slowly through Saintes provides endless entertainment throughout the summer months. Pottering about in the river, whether in a canoe, boat or sitting on the banks with a fishing rod, is a wonderful way to see both the French countryside and the town from a new perspective, one which really endears many of those staying in a Saintes property, convincing them to return year after year.

                                                            Fantastic break in a beautiful location. The Gite was everything we hoped for. We spent hours relaxing by the super pool and enjoyed the Al fresco dining. We were impressed by the amount of places to visit nearby. We will definitely be returning.

                                                            Maison très agréable à vivre dans un cadre exceptionnel. Accueil très chaleureux des propriétaires. L'intérieur est très bien agencé; la cuisine est bien équipée. La maison est isolée au milieu des vignes à quelques minutes des plages. Le grand jardin, la piscine et la magnifique terrasse rendent ce lieu idéal pour se détendre! Une précieuse adresse à conserver!

                                                            Ideal for a family holiday

                                                            I would definitely recommend this as a good place to take a family holiday. There is plenty to do on site whether it is the Play Barn for children, the pool for swimming or the rear patio area on which to relax with a book and a glass. Good fare is available at a wide range of restaurants in the area. The property was clean and well maintained as was the extensive garden area around it. The surrounding area offers plenty for bird watchers, walkers, those with an interest in history and those with an interest in products of the vineyard. A visit to the covered food market at Royan was one we recommend. We look forward to going to stay at Font Remy again.
