We have just returned from our second holiday in this lovely property and will undoubtedly return again in the future. It really feels like a home from home.

The house is a traditional stone farmhouse, with nice original features but tastefully modernised. It is clean, well maintained and has everything you would need. There is a large garden and fantastic swimming pool, which the children would have spent the entire holiday in, given half a chance! A BBQ and fridge in the summer house was made great use of and the children enjoyed the trampoline and large garden to play and kick a ball around.

St Palais de Phiolin is a small, peaceful village, surrounded by fields and vineyards. There are no shops but the town of Pons is only a short drive away. It was a perfect setting to unwind, with only birdsong to be heard.

Our hosts gave us lots of ideas of places to visit and arranged a tour of a local Cognac distillery. We also enjoyed a lovely boat trip from Mortagne Sur Gironde and visited Talmont Sur Gironde, which was beautiful, Jarnac, Saints, Jonzac and the port and beaches of Royan and St George de Didonne. Provided you have a car, it is a lovely area to explore.

We would highly recommend this property!
