Interaction with guests
Keys are picked up on site and Nikki, our gardienne, will meet guests on arrival or shortly after. Both she and I are available to sort out any problems or issues should they arise during your stay - but otherwise we leave you alone to enjoy your holiday in peace. A full information pack is available in each house detailing our recommended restaurants, beaches, markets and day trips out - along with useful tips on how to make the most of your holiday. In the games barn you will find lots of tourist information leaflets to help you decide what you'd like to do - there is plenty for everyone :)

About the neighbourhood
The area around Wisteria is great for waking, cycling and running (lovely quiet lanes) and you can always end up in a small village/winery or down by the port watching the sunset tasting local wines, pineau and cognac. The beaches are lovely- sandy and never as crowded as in the south of France - most have beach bars or cafes for lunch or a kir royal at the end of an afternoon. There is great bird watching down in the estuary especially in spring and autumn. We love to walk down to the port of Mortagne in the early evening for a beer and baked Camembert before coming back to the house to bbq on the patio with food we have bought at one of the many local food markets in the area. There are lots of places to visit in the area - pre-historic ruins, roman towns, cognac distilleries, wineri...
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.
