Customer Comments

Selected comment(s) from customers who have enjoyed staying at this property:
  1. Enjoyed our holiday here and would stay here again. Well maintained and attractive property in traditional village with restaurants & food shops all within walking distance. You can get fresh bread and croissants every morning from boulangerie round the corner. The Port is a few minutes down the hill and has a good selection of restaurants. Lovely private courtyard with BBQ which is totally relaxing. Bedroom looks over the estuary and it is a interesting area to explore for nature lovers. Sept 2012.
  2. Lovely fisherman’s cottage, well furnished and tastefully decorated. Compact accommodation with a pleasant private courtyard with built in BBQ constructed from an old hearth. Superb views from the main bedroom of the Gironde estuary. Mortagne itself, has two main parts: the harbour area, now a quiet marina with restaurants and nice walks; and the town, interesting and friendly with faded grandeur. We loved learning about Mortagne’s past including it’s rich maritime history and a link to Owain Llawgoch - a legendary Welshman! July 2011.
  3. It was a lot nicer than portrayed. April 2012.
  4. Excellent location. Aug 2010.
  5. Great size for couple or small family, cool downstairs warm in bedrooms. May 2010.
  6. Tastefully decorated and well appointed accommodation giving an authentice French feel. The courtyard fireplace was an excellent facility. Location in the town enabled easy access to charcuterie and boulangeries, as well as small supermarket and pharmacy. Port is delightful for eating and evening strolls. Owners are charming. Aug 2009.
  7. Beautifully decorated, fantastic barbeque area and patio, great shower. July 2009.
  8. A delightful little property with all that was needed for a holiday. June 2007.
  9. The cottage was absolutely beautiful and fabulously well laid out, the patio/BBQ area was first class and private. Aug 2007.
