About the neighbourhood
St Thomas de Conac is a small village close to the Gironde estuary. It has a bar bistro, bakers, butchers and small shop. We are surrounded by vineyards and crops with only one close neighbour. So its a great place to escape and get back in touch with nature. We are in the path of migratory birds from Africa to Northern Europe so this is a great place for bird watchers and nature lovers. There are some lovely ports, villages and towns with a short drive. The classy beach resort of Royan is 40 minutes drive away and its market was judged as the 2nd best in France in 2018. Bordeaux, Angouleme, Cognac and other iconic locations are only an hour away as are the famous wine regions of the Medoc, St Emillion, St Estephe and Pomerol.
Getting around
Le Clone is about 3.5km from the village and a short drive to supermarkets and other amenities. Theres no public transport and our rural location means you really need a vehicle to enjoy the area.
