Weather in St Vivien de Medoc, France

One of the best things about this part of France is the weather. It seems that no matter what time of year it is, the temperature is always 5 degrees warmer than back in the UK!

Travel to St Vivien de Medoc France

The closest airport to the self catering accommodation in St Vivien de Medoc is at Bordeaux (BOD). This medium sized airport takes in flights from some UK cities, including London. British Airways flies out of Gatwick (LGW) on a regular basis, as does BMI Baby. Another option would be to drive, although the nearest ferry port is over 600km away. The extra time taken by driving might be worth it, though, as it then means that you would have a vehicle to use in order to explore the Gironde region.

The house was easy to find and we were welcomed by friends of the owner. The house had everything you need, was clean and well kept and was as advertised. We slept well, using one of the double bedrooms. The house has a large garden, ideal for relaxing and eating outdoors and with lots of shady spots as well as full sun. We took our bikes (all the way from Scotland) and were able to cycle easily to the coasts, the many beaches and the Pointe de Grave using the network of cycle paths and country roads. Beach towns such as lovely Soulac-sur-Mer and the relaxed camping/surfing beach spot of Le Gurp are 10 minutes or so by car, but within easy cycling. Having a baker closeby in the village is a bonus, while supermarkets are a short drive away. Wildlife seen in and from the garden was a real highlight: lovely continental pied wagtails, colourful hoopoes, a nest of black redstarts fledging, a nest of swallows fledging, lovely dark phase red squirrels, jays, herons, egrets, black kites, thrushes, moths.... This was perfect for us, we would seriously consider returning.

Steve and Lorraine go out of their way to be helpful and give advice on local attractions. There is a wide choice of things to do in the area from country walks to town sightseeing. The local markets are well worth a visit, the food and drink available in the area is outstanding. The gite is easy to find yet tucked away from the main highways. The pool is a real treat, clearly Steve's pride and joy, its a great place to relax after a hot day out and about or with a book and glass of wine. The Gite is equipped with everything needed for holiday catering. The beds are comfy, towels and linen all supplied and replaced when needed. The living/dining room works well and there is a lovely garden for alfresco dinning.

The property was located close to all amenities, and a short walk from the beach. We had a warm welcome on arrival from the owner and the property was very beautiful, both inside and out. We had everything we required and more. We will definitely consider returning in the future, and would highly recommend. Rebecca and family
