The property was lovely and quiet, with everything we needed for a restful stay. Nice to have fields of sunflowers next door to walk around and the lovely big garden for my daughter to play in, with the kids books and toys welcome additions. Good location to get to the sandy coastal beaches or visit interesting old towns and villages like Blaye, Pons and Saintes. Large supermarket is also in easy reach to get your provisions.
We've stayed in many French gites, Moulin Rompu is absolutely one of the best, probably the best. It is unusual to find a gite of this quality, for a couple. The gite was spotlessly clean, very comfortable and well equipped. The location is perfect with amazing views over the Gironde Estuary, the garden area is v private and in full sun all day with fabulous sunsets. The pool is lovely, no horrible chemicals and was cleaned everyday. It is shared with the owners, but genuinely, this was never an issue, we felt as if we had first dibs whenever we wanted to cool off. Howard & Liz are perfect hosts, recomended trips, beaches, restaurants etc and even booked them for us. Howard even gave us a wine tasting of his favorite red from Haut Grelot. He should be on commission because on our subsequent visit to the cave we bought lots! The area has many great restaurants, our favourite probably La Table in Meursac, Bistrot du Port in Meschers also v gd and 1407(walking distance from gite in Mortagne S Gironde port) also good - but take mozzie spray... Great beaches nearby - lovely cove of Plage de Vergnes and big stretch of beach at Grande Cote.
Fabulous holiday and would wholeheartedly recommend this property.
