Gites
Les Volets Bleus is one of four gites located within a 16-acre Estate, La Flotte, with stunning views over lake, countryside and sea, 5 Mins from the harbour village ofMortagne-sur-Gironde. We are in the heart of the micro climate of the Charente Maritime with 2,700 hours of sunshine a year and surrounded by vineyards and sunflowers. All the gites including Les Volets Bleus have their own individual charm and character with just the right balance between French traditional style and the modern creature comforts you'd expect at home....Les Volets Bleus is one of four gites located within a 16-acre Estate, La Flotte, with stunning views over lake, countryside and sea, 5 Mins from the harbour village ofMortagne-sur-Gironde.

What a beautiful place La Flotte is. An oasis of calm set down a private drive yet only 5 minutes from the boulangerie and the restaurants down in the gorgeous port of Mortagne. Can't recommend it highly enough, we've already booked for next year!

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.
