The villa is located in Etaules, 7km/4 miles away from the pretty village of La Palmyre, on the Arvert Peninsula. This is situated at the mouth of the Gironde where it meets the Atlantic ocean. The nearest large town is Royan (20km) with Saintes (35km East), La Rochelle (60km North) and Bordeaux (100km South) also nearby.
In Etaules, there are local shops within 700 metres, these include a small supermarket, boulongerie, Tabac, Butchers, and several other small shops. The beaches of La Palmyre and Royan are within 10 or 15 minutes travel. The super beaches are all well supervised and have Blue Flag cleanliness status.
In La Palmyre each Sunday and Wednesday there is a large market (Easter to end Sept.). The local Market in Etaules is on Thursday mornings in the town centre and is well worth a visit to buy fresh local produce.
If you would like a day out you can visit Cognac and the famous Cognac Producers buildings, just walk along the river-bank or take a boat-trip on the river. Visit the famous wine producing area of Medoc and perhaps find a small wine producer who will show you around his vineyard. A day out to La Rochelle can be very rewarding, great shopping, great street cafes, lots to see and do (including the fabulous new Aquarium and Marine Centre).
The property is currently run as a holiday let. Please ask us for further details.
