The house was possibly even better than we expected, with plenty of room, excellent room layout and a well stocked kitchen. Everything was lovely and clean for our arrival, and we particularly enjoyed the welcome bottle of wine. The on-site contact (sorry, can't remember her name!) was helpful and quickly responded to our questions. While we enjoyed meeting our neighbours the outside space also offered privacy and the ability to just spend time with our own party. We got a lot of use from the pool, which is a great size, even when sharing with other properties. The BBQ is brilliant - you have converted us to gas rather than charcoal!
Location-wise, it is a beautiful part of France. Mortgage is a lively village that has several good boulangeries for all your bread, croissant and pastry needs. We nosed around an antiques centre in Mortagne a number of times and found some lovely small items and pictures to bring home. St Georges, Royan and Talmont are all close by and we enjoyed many days out and meals there. The local surf school in Royan provided a brilliant morning lesson up on the Cote Sauvage. We also went kayaking near Les Monards. The zoo at Palmyre is excellent and well worth a vista, as is the aquarium in La Rochelle.
Amazing place, La Flotte is so private with beautiful grounds, immaculately maintained by Amanda and Tim. Our gite couldn't have been more perfect from the gorgeous decor to the comfortable beds - everything has been thought of. The pool area was literally at the end of our garden, it was so relaxing to eat and look out over the pool. The children had a wonderful time in the play area and it's so safe that we felt we could leave them and relax ourselves - a first!
