La maison de Steve est très agréable et très calme et le grand jardin très joli. Les photos de l'annonce sont conformes à la réalité. Nous avons beaucoup apprécié de prendre le petit déjeuner sous la pergola et l'apéritif dans les transats. Si nous en avons l'occasion, nous reviendrons avec plaisir dans cette maison. Nous n'hésiterons pas à la conseiller à des amis.
Steve's house is very nice and very quiet and the big garden very pretty. The photos of the ad are true to reality. We really enjoyed having breakfast under the pergola and an aperitif in the sunbeds. If we have the opportunity, we will return with pleasure in this house. We will not hesitate to recommend it to friends.

La maison est très agréable et très bien équipée. Les enfants se sont bien amusés avec le trampoline. Et le chien a bien profité du grand jardin. Encore merci Steve pour ce merveilleux séjour.
The house is very nice and very well equipped. The kids had fun with the trampoline. And the dog took advantage of the big garden. Again thank you Steve for this wonderful stay.
The owners have thought of everything in this house
By Humphreyhearn Dartford, United Kingdom on 01-Oct-2018
We have been visiting this area for many years, and to be just 17 minutes from our favourite beach was great. The house was clean and comfortable, and is the best equiped we have stayed in. Really good to have such a choice of outside seating areas, and garden chairs/loungers that are actually comfortable. The welcome basket was a very thoughtful touch. Thank you for helping us have a lovely holiday.
Well equipped house and fully closed garden (dog proof).

Holiday Villa Close to Fantastic Beaches, Local Amenities and Vets - exactly as described!
By Victoria on 29-Jul-2017
We had a lovely week with good weather. Having seating areas at the front and rear of the property was great as you could take your pick to eat in the sun or shade. We travel with our dogs and the garden is large and secure - also great for children with trampoline, swing, toys etc. Steve and Rita even made sure a paddling pool was left out for the dogs to cool off in! There are many places to visit within easy driving distance - Talmont, Royan, Pons, Saints, Cognac and slightly further afield La Rochelle and Ile de Re to name a few. We were overwhelmed by the local beaches. The local boulangerie is only 5-10 minutes walk away and provided our lunches for the whole week which were lovely to eat outside. We also had a lovely lunch in Pons and evening meal at Le Cottage in Arces so much so that we revisited both! The house is clean and comfortable and also plenty of loungers in the garden etc. We priced up both local vets for the tapeworm treatment before returning to the UK and the french speaking one was half the price of the english one so be sure to check it out - again Steve and Rita advised well on this. Finally the welcome pack left for us was very thoughtful and our deposit was refunded immediately. We would have no hesitation in recommending this property.
A lovely spacious house, quiet neighbours, good nearby amenities. Relaxing.
By Glen A on 06-Sep-2016
his house has everything that you could need for a comfortable and quiet stay in the Cozes and Saint Georges de Didonne region. With plenty of private parking at the front and a vast garden at the back. Outdoor seating including reclining chairs and a multitude of children's games and some beach accessories are provided in outdoor storage units. We had breakfast outside every morning at the table (that can seat 6) and out the front by the BBQ in the evening. The owners (very nice) kindly provided some provisions upon our arrival including milk, coffee, Jam and a nice bottle of wine in the fridge. The house is nicely laid out and very clean. There are three bedrooms, two of which have double beds and the other has two singles; plenty of storage in each. The lounge has ample seating and a large TV with DVD player and Satellite TV, although we spent the evenings outside drinking wine! The house has WIFI which was a blessing since my mobile data was really slow. Being a French house all the windows have outside shutters which is nice because it keeps the house cool and keeps the morning sun out as well. The kitchen has everything you can think of and certainly everything that you have at home. There is a bathroom with toilet and a separate shower room with toilet. If you need to wash anything there is also a washing machine and, a bonus for me, a dishwasher! The neighbours were very quiet; we didn't hear anything or get woken up. It has made us determined to stay in private accommodation in the future since it is far more relaxing that any camp site. Cozes is situated just 15 to 20 minutes away from Saint De Georges de Didonne, arguably one of the best beaches in the area. They do charge for parking along the front but the side streets have ample parking without any charges. The evening market was nice to visit. Another close by place to see is Talmont Sur Mer, with the church that is lit up on several days during the week in the summer. We also visited La Rochelle, the Green Venice Way and a number of other places, all easily accessible from Cozes. You'll find that you are a short drive away from the local Super-U which is a good size and includes a petrol station, with reasonably priced petrol/diesel. There is a large doctors surgery and I recall seeing Vets too. All in all a very nice place to stay and certainly made our holiday relaxing.
Lovely French Villa
By Pat on 03-Sep-2016
The instructions on how to find this lovely villa were perfect and we recognised it immediately from the pictures. Steve and Rita have worked hard to create a very welcoming, clean and tidy holiday home. Great attention to detail had been taken by them leaving us a very generous welcome pack, including wine, tea, coffee just to mention the drinks in the pack! The property is well appointed with lots of extras, especially in the kitchen, which you don't usually find in holiday homes. Everything was as it said in the advert and we immediately felt at home. Cozes is an ideal location for visiting many towns, chateaux and delightful beaches and seaside resorts, many of which are included in France's loveliest villages.
Charming, quiet and rustic, well equipped and conveniently located villa.
By Jon & Alison on 03-Sep-2016
harming, quiet and rustic, well equipped and conveniently located villa. We stayed at the villa for 2 weeks in early September 2016 when the weather was fantastic. The sheltered pergola area, enabled us to eat outside every day. It was nice to be able to watch the English news (via the Sky box) and the wifi was both fast and reliable. The house is within a day's drive of Calais and the village provides most local needs. It includes a large supermarket and petrol station. There is also a market and chemist. Excellent restaurants can be found a short drive away, and there is a good Vietnamese restaurant in the village itself (which is a 15 minute walk away) but there is ample parking too. We discovered a lovely little beach outside Meschers - Suzac Plage and had a delightful day at Ile d'Oléron as well as the archaeological site at Fa. The local winery en route to Cozes village is also worth a visit. This rustic villa, amongst the vines, pines and beaches twixt the sea and Bordeaux, is a perfect spot for peace and quiet, allowing for days to be spent in the garden reading or playing games (plenty of garden games provided) or venturing forth depending how energetic you are! Steve & Rita were extremely helpful in answering any questions we had both before and during our stay. In short, we can thoroughly recommend this villa for both families or couples if you want to be 'cozy' in Cozes Alison & Jon
Well appointed, close to beaches (Meschers) & shops (Cozes), relaxing & peaceful, recommended.
By John B. on 24-Aug-2016
he property was clean on arrival with some essentials waiting for us. The house has a very well equipped kitchen and lovely seating areas to the front & rear, we ate at the front table all the time and never had to eat inside for the duration of our stay. The bedrooms are comfortable with wardrobes and drawers in all rooms and ceiling fans to stay cool, if needed. Plenty of very hot water and both showers (1 over bath) work well. Plenty of comfortable seating in the lounge with a large TV & DVD player (didn't watch any TV). Fast WiFi internet was well used by all and much appreciated after staying in places with a slow or non-existent connection. The back garden is very large and a great area for children to play - the swings & trampoline got plenty of use... If you like fresh figs there are 2 trees bursting with figs, we didn't time our stay right as they weren't yet ripe! We visited a few different beaches before we discovered 'Plage des Nonnes' which was about 20 mins away and had easy parking at top of hill and a lovely sandy beach. We also visited 'Le Cottage' restaurant in nearby Arces and had a fantastic meal. We thoroughly enjoyed our stay and will probably return in the future
Great family property
By Olivia on 14-Aug-2016
This is a lovely property with a fantastic garden and outside games provided. Plenty of space with a comfy living area. The outside eating areas were ideal and the kitchen is well-equipped.
Fantastic property in a great location
By Anonomous on 27-Jun-2015
This property was great for our needs, we have two dogs who enjoyed the large enclosed garden and the close proximity to beaches and other local amenities just a few minutes drive away. There is lots to do around the area - we particularly loved visiting La palmarye zoo just a short distance away - the best zoo we have ever visited I would recommend this. The house its self was well equipped and catered to our needs, it was clean and tidy and well presented we liked that it had sky and the use of wifi .Overall we were extremely pleased with this property and the local area and we wouldn't hesitate to book again!
By HENDIES on 12-Jul-2014
Thank You - we had a fab week here in the summer. We have 2 young boys who enjoyed tearing around the garden - they loved the swings and bouncing on the trampoline in the early evening (tiring them out before bed time !!) Our dog loved chilling in the shade and we were very happy at how secure the garden was - no chance of him escaping !! We loved the local beaches and popping down to Talmont for an ice-cream. We took a day trip over the river to the vineyards which we would highly recommend - especially the wine testing. The Zoo near Royan is a must if you are staying here with children - kept them entertained for the whole day. House is very clean and well equipped for families with lots of space to spread out for us all and we loved having our meals outside - enjoying the peace. Cozes is a lovely little village with everything you need and close enough to pop down to in the morning for croissants. We'll definitely be holidaying in this region again.
