We wouldn't hesitate in recommending this fabulous old French building. We stayed in 'Honeysuckle' with it's double height sitting room. The host's really couldn't have been more welcoming, they've created a peaceful space in which to while away the days and nights, perched in between sunflower fields and vineyards. The pool was in the right spot for the sun with...

Management response:

So glad you enjoyed your stay with us, despite the poor weather. Thanks again for choosing to holiday with us.

This is our third visit to Tim and Amanda's beautiful home. As always La Flotte is immaculately maintained and every year we see some improvements in each gite. Honeysuckle is our favourite with it's bigger and more private garden but all the gites have something special and unique. We'll be back again!

Management response:

As always a pleasure to have such wonderful guests! Looking forward to seeing you here again in 2019.

About the neighbourhood
The nearest beaches are 15-20 minutes up the coast at Meschers. These are small coves with safe sandy beaches.

Another 5 minutes further up are the huge sweeping beaches of St George and Royan, each with lots of space and some watersports and full safety patrols.

North of Royan is the Grand Cote - several miles of sandy beaches with some local beach patrols. Finally a little further (say 40 minutes from La Flotte) is the Cote Sauvage, again good sandy beaches.

We are situated less than a mile inland from the harbour village of Mortagne sur Gironde which is on the Gironde estuary about 18 miles south of Royan (at the mouth of the estuary).

The nearest two airports are Bordeaux and La Rochelle, both equal distance from La Flotte - Bordeaux to the south and La Rochelle to the north. La Flotte is easily reached from both airports via the A10 autoroute; travel time about one hour.

Use of a car is necessary to reach La Flotte. car hire is very easy and relatively inexpensive, especially for small cars available at both airports. The budget airlines all offer special dea...
