Villa overview - owner's description
Two stunning four-bedroom houses perch on a headland over the Gironde estuary. Among the untouched beauty of the surrounding oak and pine trees, a tunnel dives through the cliff to the beach below.
Two stunning four-bedroom houses perch on a headland over the Gironde estuary. Among the untouched beauty of the surrounding oak and pine trees, a tunnel dives through the cliff to the beach below, while the infinity pool faces out over the the cliff across the estuary.
Spend the morning browsing the local French markets for the seasonal delicacies, before enjoying lunch at the outside dining area by the pool, complete with fully-fitted kitchen and Weber gas barbecue. If you have energy to burn in the afternoon, why not play a little tennis, go for a kayak in the estuary or go cycling in the woods... At sunset, gather at the tip of the headland to enjoy an aperitif and watch the sun setting out to sea - and get ready to enjoy your home from home again the next day!
The Main House
- Master bedroom: Super-king bed, balcony and triple aspect windows
- The Blue Room: Queen-size bed and double aspect windows
- The Twin Room: Twin beds
Also upstairs is one bathroom with double sinks, a separate toilet and one shower room with luxury rain shower, WC, and double sinks. On the ground floor, there is also another rain-shower room with WC.
A large dining room with open fireplace leads to comfortable living room with Sky TV. The well-equipped kitchen is also on ground floor. Downstairs, the basement has table-tennis, table football, pinball and kids' games.
The Guest House
- Master bedroom: Located on the ground floor with walk-in closet and ensuite rain-shower room and direct access from the bedroom to the terrace
- The White Room: Queen-sized bed, double aspect windows
- The Dormitory: A kids' haven with three trundle beds – and so the potential for a 6-bed dorm! Also upstairs is a bathroom and WC with roll-top bath.
- The Terrace Room: Annexed to the Guest House, but in its own space because there is no internal access between the two. Queen-sized bed, ensuite shower room with rain shower and WC. French doors onto terrace.
The Guest House has a fully equipped kitchen and a cosy dining and living area. This opens out through the French doors to a beautiful covered outside dining area on the terrace, with Weber barbecue.
The heated infinity pool (approx 10 metres) has sunbeds and a curtained day bed perfect for a shady snooze. The fully equipped kitchen with Weber barbecue and large dining table, all under shade, are perfect for long lunches and the open fireplace means it's still a perfect place for dinner even on chillier evenings!
The Point is also the perfect place to watch the sunset, enjoy an aperitif with that special someone or snuggle up with coffee and a book on a sunny morning. With comfy seating, the beautiful setting at the edge of the property on the cliffs overlooking the estuary is truly luxurious. The rustic grounds also provide space for almost any activity. There are lawns, sandy paths, wooded wilderness, vegetable patches and herb-filled terraces. And of course, the beach is just through the tunnel in the cliffs!
In Meschers-sur-Gironde and St Georges-de-Didonne, the nearest villages, you can explore the troglodyte caves, beautiful tucked-away sandy coves and traditional markets, all just a short bike ride away. Just thirty minutes north is the untamed beauty of the Cote Sauvage. This 20km stretch of almost uninterrupted sandy beach is perfect for all sorts of watersports, and surfers and body-boarders can make the most of the renowned Atlantic waves.
Just inland there are over 40km of cycle paths winding through the forests to explore, and the kids can have fun at the zip-wire park, crazy golf or horse-riding. A little further away (about an hour and a half in each direction), the two great cities of La Rochelle and Bordeaux prove how the old and new go so perfectly together in France.
Wander down to the lively marina and old harbour at La Rochelle and admire the limestone facades, or dive down and explore some of the many arcaded walkways. In Bordeaux, explore the UNESCO-listed city centre with its bustling hubbub of shops and commerce amongst the stunningly restored neoclassical architecture. Both make excellent stopovers on your way to or from Embeschade, and both have airports making them extremely useful transport hubs.
Bordeaux is perhaps most famous of all for its wine, much of which is classed among the best in the world. Heading south from Embeschade you'll come first to Cote de Blaye, and then on through Pomerol, St Emilion and Entre-Deux-Mers to Sauternes and Graves south of Bordeaux itself. Or, take the ferry from Royan (just 10 minutes from Embeschade) to the Medoc side of the estuary and journey down through the vines to the world-famous villages of St-Estephe, Pauillac, St-Julien and Margaux.
We recommend arranging a guided cycling tour, visiting a couple of these renowned vineyards before indulging in a delicious lunch surrounded by the rolling vineyards. For brandy-lovers Cognac lies to the north-east, home of illustrious producers such as Courvoisier, Hennessy and Remy-Martin, among others. Tour one of these famous houses before taking a stroll through the old town and having lunch by the river Charente - perfection!
- Pool opened and closed daily, cleaned as needed.
- Daily housekeeping included other services (catering, transfers, etc) can be arranged at an extra cost - please contact for further details.
