Les Voiles Blanches, Mortagne sur Gironde, Charente Maritime
Waterfront Apartment on 1st floor, One Bedroom, Sleeps 2 People
Perfect for Couples
Close Atlantic Beaches

First floor apartment with one bedroom sleeping 2. Located in an old flourmill conversion, all new for 2010. with views from the sitting area and bedroom towards the harbour and river.

All on one level and tastefully and traditionally furnished in open plan style, with fully fitted kitchen, having washing machine, full cooker, fridge, microwave, dishwasher and full crockery and utensils. There is a sitting area with dining table and chairs, with a corridor leading to the double bedroom and bathroom, which has an Italian shower, basin and a separate wc.

There is secure parking at the rear of the building.

Mortagne-sur-Gironde is a small, enchanting and picturesque port with the Gironde Estuary beyond, enjoying a wonderful backdrop of white, chalk cliffs. The mle of private boats, yachts and small fishing vessels are a constant delight to watch, either from your window or under the shade of the trees to the front of the building.

Just a few steps away, with level access, you will find a variety of restaurants which are open all year, with local seafood top of the menu. However, the menus are varied, and you can also, of course, get an excellent variety of other foods such as steaks, chicken, pizzas, etc. Or, just simply have a glass of wine and watch the world go by! During the summer months, bread, fruit, vegetables and many other delicacies are available on the port, including fresh fish, just a couple of minutes walk away. There is more commerce in the main village, including a bank, post office, bar/tabac, butchers, bakers and a well stocked Co-Op store for most provisions. Whilst it is quite possible to walk up to the main village, (and many people do!) it is not for the faint hearted; it is a comparatively short walk, but it is a very steep climb! There is a large supermarket (Super U) at Gemozac, which is a 10 minute drive, where you will find just about everything else that you may need. There are plenty of restaurants in the various villages and towns, within a short drive, to suit every taste and pocket, ranging from the exclusive to the more simple.

Mortagne-sur-Gironde is, of course arguably, the prettiest village along the estuary, and off season is generally fairly peaceful. However, it hosts many fetes, brocante fairs and functions, usually free, during July and August, and at the weekends can be fairly lively. It is not a place particularly suited to the very young, and lends itself more towards the "young at heart"; there are no discos or noisy bars, but on some weekend evenings in the summer, you can expect to hear the sounds of people enjoying themselves in the local restaurants until the late evening. It can also be described a fairly peaceful the rest of the time!

The area is most famous for Cognac and wine, and on nearly every country road you will have the opportunity to taste and buy if you wish. There is simply too much to do and see in the area to list, but for starters the nearest beaches are at Meschers, about a 15 minute drive. It is a small town with a bustling port and harbour, offering a large selection of excellent and reasonably priced restaurants. A little further along you will find St George de Didonne and Royan, again offering superb beaches and a multitude of shops, restaurants and places of interest. Slightly further along the coast is where some very good surfing beaches can be found, or from Royan you can take the ferry across the Gironde to the wilder side of the Atlantic coast, where the surf is big! When the temperatures soar, however, some people swim in the river just outside the apartment!
