Font Remy is located 2km inland from the pretty fishing village of Mortagne-sur-Gironde near the mouth of the Gironde Estuary. Set in 2 acres of walled grounds overlooking the vineyards with its heated, fenced 15m x 8m pool Font Remy is the ideal place for a family holiday. Whether you want to relax by the pool, visit the nearby sandy beaches, stroll into the village port nearby, indulge in the local history, food and wine or be more active you'll find it all in the local area. The beautiful safe sandy beaches and coves of Meschers, Saint Georges de Didonne and Royan are 15 -20 minutes drive away. The historic towns of Saintes or Pons are both 20 minutes away. Within an hour you can be in the beautiful ancient port of La Rochelle, the famous vineyards of Bordeaux or the city itself. Mortagne has an ancient fishing heritage and in the pretty harbour area backed by white cliffs you'll find many working fishing boats amongst the yachts. In the port and the main village there are bars and restaurants where you can while away the hours watching the world go by. The boulangerie and general store are a pleasant 20 minute walk or a 5 minute bike ride from Font Remy through the vineyards. There are many local markets including those at Cozes and Gemozac, where you will find fresh fruit and vegetables, cheeses, meat and plenty of the local seafood. There is a wide choice of restaurants within easy reach. Bikes, boats and horses can be rented locally and there are sailing schools nearby.More

About the neighbourhood
There is so much to do locally you will have to come time and time again.... Sandy Beaches: Within 15 minutes drive of Font Remy you will find some of the best sandy beaches in Europe. The 3 star Michelin rated 2km long fine sandy beach at Royan, the capital of the Cote de Beaute (Coast of Beauty), stretches north to south from the yachting marina to Saint-Georges-de-Didonne. Here you can hire the wonderful old-fashioned blue and white tents to protect you from the hot summer sun. Saint-Georges-de-Didonne, south of Royan, has its own long sandy beach and closer still to Font Remy at Merschers and La Plages des Vergnes you will find more sandy coves with caves and rock pools. The beaches of the Cote Sauvage (north of Royan) have the best waves for water sports and fabulous sand dunes – thou...
How to get there
BY CAR: Font Remy is about 4 hours' drive from St Malo, 5 hours from Le Havre or 7 hours from Calais. The motorway which brings you into Charente Maritime is the A10. The best route from Calais is via Boulogne, Rouen, Le Mans and Tours - simply follow the signs and you can't go wrong. It's motorway all the way (apart from going around Rouen) and brand new roads make the drive a pleasure and quicker than the route via Paris. BY AIR: Font Remy is 1 hour's drive from both La Rochelle and Bordeaux airports, 90 mins from Poitiers and about 2 hours from Limoges and Bergerac. Ryanair and Easyjet both fly into the area.
