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.

The cottage is perfect for our family of four (children currently 4 and 6 years old). The cottage is very well maintained, clean and as described in the details. My kids love the mezzanine bedroom, the bed in the main bedroom is very comfortable and the shower is hot and powerful. The porch is a real highlight and where we spent most of our time, including my husband having to work weekdays whilst on our holiday (the recently installed wifi made this possible). The owners have a washing machine on site should you need one. There is plenty of room for the kids to run about and play on the lawn directly in front of the cottage and there is also a very handy hammock to relax in. A brick bbq is to the side of the property and was utilised most evenings. There is a ditch on site but was of no concern or consequence with children of our age, and could easily be avoided. The location of the property is ideal, with St Vivien being an easy cycle on flat country roads (our 4 year old did it everyday) for breakfast coissants, the Wednesday produce market and summertime Sunday evening food market. We did plenty of evening cycles too, around the fields and to St Vivien port (great creperie). The Dutch adult cycles available to hire are very comfortable and meant we didn't have the hassle of having to transport our own adult bikes from Cumbria. Some days we cycled further afield, with some great cycling lanes in the vicinity, including through the coastal pine forest and along the estuary. I have visited the St Vivien area many times over the past 20 years, returning to it again and again (including 5th year in a row as a family) due to its large beaches, big waves, forests, cycle tracks, Soulac attractions and so on. Having discovered this property I wouldn't stay anywhere else. To top it all off the owners are very friendly and helpful. We will be returning....

It's a nice house with good facilities. The area is lovely and quiet, yet only 5-10 minutes walk to the centre of St Palais. The real bonus is that it genuinely is only 50m to the beach. It's a lovely sandy beach but with some rocky outcrops with rock-pools and little crabs to seek out. We'll be back.
