Our Fisherman's cottage is in the pretty port of La Rive, Mortagne-sur-Gironde. Mortagne is a lovely fishing village in the Charente-Maritime - only 20 minutes drive from the great beaches at Meschers and Royan. The village has all you need for your holiday - in the upper town there is a pizzeria, a bar, and all the essential shops including bank and post office. The cottage is just 100 metres from the port, where there are restaurants, cafes and a few shops - a boulangerie, a cabin selling freshly made hot dishes when you don't feel like cooking, and a little stall with fresh fruit, wine and other essentials ! The area is a haven for birdlife - there are wonderful walks out towards the Gironde estuary, where you can spot storks, herons, egrets and other waterbirds. The marais is perfect for cycling and there is horseriding available too. The house itself is an old fisherman's cottage, and was once an "epicerie" (a village grocers shop) and has a large open plan living area, with a well equipped kitchen, and 3 bedrooms. There is a brand new timber decked terrace overlooking the port, with table, chairs and barbecue. The perfect holiday house from which to visit the tourist attractions in the area - to spend long days on the nearby beaches - or to simply soak up the sun and enjoy the relaxed atmosphere of this wonderful area of France.
