    Holiday Rental House – 
    2 Bedrooms, 1 Bathroom, Sleeps 4
    Summer or winter, this carefully restored coastal cottage set in rolling farmland will give you a taste of French rural life, whilst still providing all the home comforts. Self-contained, with its own pretty walled garden, 'La Marée' is in a quiet hamlet not far from the wide sandy beaches of Meschers and St Georges de Didonne.

    The cottage comprises two bedrooms, both with views of the Gironde estuary; with a new shower-room and separate toilet. Downstairs there's a comfortable sitting room with open fireplace, leading into a dining area and fully-equipped kitchen.

    Additional amenities & feature info
    Downstairs the cottage is open-plan, retaining its original beams, exposed stone walls and terracotta floor tiles. There is a spacious kitchen and dining area to one side, with a log-burning stove to make it cosy in winter. The sitting room is on the other side of the entrance hall - with an open fire for cold nights - and also benefits from a window to the garden, giving it a light and airy feel.

    Upstairs there is a wooden landing, with new shower-room at one end (including double basins) and separate toilet at the other. In between are the two bedrooms: one with double bed and windows looking out over the garden and across to the Estuary; the other has two single beds and overlooks the garden to a small windmill opposite . Both rooms have radiators, wardrobes and bedside cabinets.
