Lovely house, great position, very relaxing

5 of 5
We had a great two-week trip to Talais in July 2016. 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.

Good location and nice park - but not very comfortable.

4 of 5
Overlooking the fact that the website had posted the wrong location map on the website, and we waited far too long to get the keys, the park was really nice. Caravan was clean on the whole, but we had to clean it at the start and end of the holiday. As nice as the caravan was, there was nowhere to relax; no loungers, no useable garden and impossible to gather as a family within the caravan (seating was just impractical). Putting all that to one side the park was nice and clean and safe for our children. The onsite water park was great for the kids, as was the evening entertainment. We would definitely stay at this park again, but we would probably look for a bigger caravan with more 'living' space and make sure that we didn't have to wait an hour for the keys

Beautiful home, stunning location and a lovely welcome by the owner

5 of 5
We enjoyed our stay in Royan. 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
