Idyllic holiday home with beautiful surrounding, equipped with everything needed to keep all generations happy: a games room, pool and short distance to the local town. I have visited more than once and would recommend to anyone!

About the neighbourhood
There is so much to do locally you will have to come time and time again.... Sandy Beaches: Within 15 minutes drive of Font Remy you will find some of the best sandy beaches in Europe. The 3 star Michelin rated 2km long fine sandy beach at Royan, the capital of the Cote de Beaute (Coast of Beauty), stretches north to south from the yachting marina to Saint-Georges-de-Didonne. Here you can hire the wonderful old-fashioned blue and white tents to protect you from the hot summer sun. Saint-Georges-de-Didonne, south of Royan, has its own long sandy beach and closer still to Font Remy at Merschers and La Plages des Vergnes you will find more sandy coves with caves and rock pools. The beaches of the Cote Sauvage (north of Royan) have the best waves for water sports and fabulous sand dunes – though some of them are nudist! Similarly the islands of Ile de Re and Ile d’Oleron have some wonderful stretches of sand. Watersports: As well as bathing and basking in the sun, Royan and the Ile d’Oleron are centres for water sports such as windsurfing and sailing. Go on a boat trip or rent a boat. In the northern Charente Maritime, west of Niort, are the waterways of the Marais Poitevin, or Green Venice area. At several villages you can rent flat-bottomed boats and paddle around a delightful maze of tiny canals, lined with willows and poplars. Cycling: There is a network of quiet lanes winding among the vineyards around Font Remy and Mortagne, and there are numerous cycle paths in the area. Either bring your own bikes or hire them locally. From St Palais-sur-Mer near Royan there is 60 km of cycle track through the forest and along the coast. There are also marked routes for mountain bikes. Walking: As you would also expect, this is a wonderful area for walking with some breathtaking views of the estuary beyond the vineyards. There are some wonderful seaside and cliff top walks. Details of walks can be found in the house. Golfers are well catered for with excellent courses at Royan, Saintes, Cognac and Bordeaux. Horse Riding: There are several good horse riding facilities locally. Bird Watching: There are always birds of prey circling in the area around Font Remy and you are likely to see black redstarts, cuckoos, black kites, hen harriers, buzzards, goshawks, herons, pied flycatchers and hoopoes, among others. The area as a whole is excellent for spotting migratory birds (particularly spring and autumn). At Rochefort, about 35 minutes north of Font Remy, 74 hectares of ecological lagoons welcome thousands of birds each year. Fishing: Trout, pike, perch, big carp and whitefish are among the first class catches that the fishing enthusiast can pull out of the waters of the River Charente and other rivers and lakes in the area. The local tourist office in Mortagne has details of where permits can be purchased. Deep sea fishing is also available in Mortagne and Royan. Wine Tasting: You can taste (and buy) Cognac, chardonnay, sauvignon or pineau on the doorstep of Font Remy. Within easy reach is Cognac itself, where you can visit the famous producers and then, of course, there is the famous wine growing region of Bordeaux. St Emilion is a must or take a tour of the Medoc, home to some of the most famous Bordeaux vineyards. The Zoo at La Palmyre: In the heart of one of the most beautiful pine forests in the area just north of Royan (35 minutes’ drive) lies La Palmyre zoo. The most famous zoological park in France and recently voted European Zoo of the Year, it is the most visited tourist attraction in the department of Charente-Maritime. As a breeding zoo it is different from most people’s idea of a zoo with many animals free to roam – there are more than 1600 in all! See apes, elephants, bears, jaguars, lions, panthers, giraffes, hippopotamuses, wolves, crocodiles, pink flamingos, cockatoos, red ibis, parrots. There is a new polar bear basin and tropical greenhouse, a reptile house and shows with trained parrots and sea lions. Kids love it!
How to get there
BY CAR: Font Remy is about 4 hours' drive from St Malo, 5 hours from Le Havre or 7 hours from Calais. The motorway which brings you into Charente Maritime is the A10. The best route from Calais is via Boulogne, Rouen, Le Mans and Tours - simply follow the signs and you can't go wrong. It's motorway all the way (apart from going around Rouen) and brand new roads make the drive a pleasure and quicker than the route via Paris.
