Our houses are located in the country side between the towns of Gemozac and Cozes. They are only a 15 minute drive from the extensive sandy beaches of Royan and St. Georges de Didonnes and the smaller more intimate coves of the Gironde Estuary. The region has its own micro climate (due to the effects of the Gulf Stream) and as a result receives the second highest number of sunshine hours of any region of France. This gives us an extended season from April-May through to October.
