The dream house
The house of Declan and Liz is call "Loin de la foule" it means "away from the crowd" but we call it "the dream house". The property is beautiful, clean and very well maintained inside and outside. Tastefully decorated. The house is very easy to live in. The swimming pool is big and very clean but a little chilly (at the same time we where in september and yet got plenty of sun) So swimming every day!! The beautiful garden is big with flowers and a Stunning view of the village, the church and fields. But the most important for us, is that the house have a "soul" you got a very positive feeling to be in. As the matter of fact is very rare to find a place like that to rent.
Je tiens à remercier Kimberley and Philippe pour leur accueil et remercier tout particulièrement Jean-Pierre et son épouse, voisins de la maison pour leur gentillesse, disponibilité et grande efficacité. Ils ont largement participé à la réussite de notre séjour.
A bientôt à Mortagne.
Lovely house, super pool, plenty of room, excellent location
My husband and I, along with our daughter and family have just returned from a week's stay at this house. From the beginning of the booking we have had immediate contact with Declan for information regarding the property. When we arrived we found the house located in the upper part of the village that has local butcher, bakers, pizzeria, Co-op supermarket, and even an estate agent if anyone enjoys it so much they want to move there (!) all within walking distance. The port area in the lower village had a couple of restaurants and good walks along the estuary.
The house itself built by Declan (my husband was in the construction industry so was very impressed) and I suspect furnished by Liz in a super modern style but with French influence. It is very roomy, ideal for us as the oldies were in the massive room with en-suite downstairs and the parents with children upstairs. The open plan kitchen, dining and seating area was great as we could all be talking regardless of the task we were doing. With four children it was ideal having a washing machine and line available.There was an instruction book about the house and plenty of information on things to do in the area. Best of all was the pool, used every single day by all of us. Some holiday lets squeeze in a pool but the size of the plot of land allowed Declan to build a larger pool than with usual cover. The weather for the last week in August before the children went back to school was ideal although we did have a massive thunderstorm one evening and Declan emailed to inform us it was due, luckily we were in the house all day so were able to secure the shutters, outside furniture, although the inflatables did manage to fly all over the garden and the apple tree lost a few apples. Unfortunately one branch of the fig tree did not survive - We let Kimberly (the changeover assistant) know and she immediately came to inspect the damage. Also Declan arranged for a re-clean of the pool midweek as debris had sunk to the bottom and then we had the lights on in the pool so it looked very inviting that evening.
Overall excellent house, super location for beaches and visits - we went to Talmont (artisan village with super shops and restaurants), Royan, St Palais sur Mer, Meschers - all interesting places.
Big thanks for all your communications, we all loved our holiday at 'Loin De La Foule' - and we did get away from the crowd.
Dear Sue, John and family.
Thank you so much for taking the time to review the house and your stay. We really appreciate the positive comments and of course we are delighted that you had such a relaxing and enjoyable holiday.
Hopefully you will come and stay with us again in the future!
Beautiful home, perfect for families. Lovely pool.
This was our first visit to the Gironde area and we had a wonderful holiday.
The house is very well maintained and clean. We were lucky to have hot and sunny weather, and enjoyed the pool every day.
The location is convenient for trips out and lovely beaches. The village provided all the essentials within easy walking distance. We spent a couple of nice evenings at the port towards the end of the week, enjoying a drink at the bar and live music.
Thanks to the owner for great communication in advance of our stay. A lovely relaxing family holiday!
Thanks Alison for taking the time to give such a positive review. We're delighted you had such a nice time in the house and we hope to see you back again some time in our little corner of France!
Great house and pool but we were unlucky with the weather. Port area was very quiet except on Sunday. Talmont and Royan well worth visiting. Amazing church in Royan. Good communication with Declan. Quick response to any questions.
Thanks for the nice words Andrew. Unfortunately we can't control the weather!
(all our subsequent guests have been enjoying high temperatures :) We do love the laid back atmosphere of the port (which is definitely buzzier in the sunshine!) and the towns and villages you mentioned are wonderful places to visit. It was a pleasure to have you stay.
Perfect holiday home in a perfect location
My family and I have just returned from a wonderful holiday at this beautiful property. We loved our time there. The house, beds, bed linen were spotless.
The pool was beautiful and perfectly situated next the the kitchen, allowing us to watch the children as they played in the pool from inside or outside. Communication with Declan in advance was prompt and straightforward and at the property his local agent (Thanks Kimberly) called in to make sure that everything was going well and suggest some areas to explore with the kids.
Mortagne sur Gironde is perfectly positioned with lots to do within 30 mins drive but the pool and garden made us enjoy many lazy hot days just by the pool as the children loved it. The garden is safe, secure and our children set themselves a routine of pool all day followed by football or cricket in the evening.
The town centre is less than a 10 minute walk away and so whilst the house is rural it is very close to a couple of bakeries, a butchers and small co-op. Our eldest children (10 & 9) enjoyed the freedom to go to the boulangerie in the morning to get pain & croissants.
The port was a lovely place to go for an evening bike ride with the children for a holiday ice cream while mum and dad enjoyed an espresso or a glass of local wine.
We had a wonderful time and the children enjoyed it so much that we have booked to go back again next year.
Our wonderful Gironde experience
We were delighted to revisit the Gironde area after many years and had a wonderful holiday.
The property was beautifully maintained, both inside and out, with a lovely garden area and excellent pool.
The facilities inside provided everything we needed and was to a high standard.
We had good contact with the owner who answered any queries we had immediately and concisely.
The property is set in an ideal position in which to visit the surrounding areas and there was plenty for us to see.
We would definitely recommend this property and would like to return again in the future.
