Holiday Rental House
Les Mimosas is a 200 year old Charantaise house, recently renovated to an exceptionally high standard. The house retains original beams and exposed stonework and has been beautifully decorated in a French style but in a contemporary manner. It is located on the edge of the small village of Lorignac overlooking vineyards and open countryside with the Gironde estuary visible in the distance. The local hotel and bar, both of which serve food, and village shop are just a few minutes walk. There is a large garden, ample parking, flowerbeds and large grassed area. Separately fenced is a 10 x 5 m private heated 'saltwater' pool encircled with sunbeds. The house is all on one level and its lay out is highly suitable for two families sharing. It comfortably sleeps 8 plus an infant. It is very ...Les Mimosas is a 200 year old Charantaise house, recently renovated to an exceptionally high standard.

Fans in all bedrooms and living room help keep it cool in the summer heat. Les Mimosas is a peaceful rural retreat from which to explore the cycling paths, walks, fishing, bird watching and of course sandy beaches. It is fabulous outside of the peak season in the warm months of June and September when you can find yourself walking a beach alone.More

Everything about this house oozed 'quality' - furnishings, linens, bathrooms, beds - all looked after by Liz, our contact. The change of linens after the first week was a bonus. Outside the garden and heated and gated pool were well maintained and we ate al...More

The villa is beautifully decorated and equipped to a very high standard. We stayed as two families with 3 toddlers and enjoyed sunny days by the child friendly gated and heated pool. The villa is easily accessible from Bordeaux airport (less than an hour away)....More

Thank you Bethan. Yes, Bordeaux airport is within easy access and car hire at the airport can be very reasonable. June and early July are a very good time to be in the region. The peak holiday 6 weeks can be somewhat more crowded on...More

About the neighbourhood
The nearest beautiful sandy beach is Meschers (28km) about 20-25 minutes drive away. Between here and Royan (35km) the estuary is lined with more superb sandy beaches, both lifeguard protected and more secluded sandy coves. Parking is plentiful and free to provide easy access on foot to the beaches themselves. For surfers this is the Atlantic coast with renown surfing beaches from Cote Sauvage to the north and Soulac on the other side of the Gironde. Water sports abound on the coast. Local villages regularly have markets selling local produce and brocantes during the summer season.Nearby, Port Maubert has a restaurant and walk down to the edge of the estuary. Vitrezay nature reserve is a marvellous day out. Paths lead out into the marais through the wetlands with observation hides. It has ...
Getting around
The house is in a rural location so having a car is a must for getting around.
