We stayed for a week in St Thomas de Conac & flying into Bordeaux airport.
The house is approx 1 hour from Bordeaux using the toll road & was easy to find (take a French road map or sat nav to get out & about generally as it makes life easier!).
A car is required as there is no public transport to get around the local area.
Prior to arrival, we received details of how to get to the house from Stephanie & a range of options of things to do, plus a map of the village. There's also a really useful folder in the house with details of things to do in the region, so you can play it by ear when you arrive if needed. We used the house as a base to visit Saintes, Talmont, Meschers & Cognac over the space of the week.
The house itself was great, with 3 bedrooms (2 doubles, one twin) & had enough space for myself & 2 friends. There's plenty of space for catching some sun on the patio area or for eating outside in the evening. In the evenings, it can get warm upstairs but there is a fan for the smaller bedroom which doesn't have a window to open.
The house & the kitchen are well equipped, there was nothing that we needed that were were not able to locate, even wifi was available. The village has a bakery about 10 mins walk from the house & a bar over the road with a 3 course €19.50 menu Tues - Sun. The nearest supermarket is 10 mins drive.
Overall, a relaxing holiday & a good location to explore Charente Maritime.
Thanks for a great stay!
