About Apartment Mortagne sur Gironde Holiday Apartment

Mortagne-sur-Gironde is a small, enchanting and picturesque port with the Gironde Estuary beyond, enjoying a wonderful backdrop of white, chalk cliffs. The mêlée of private boats, yachts and small fishing vessels are a constant delight to watch, either from your window or under the shade of the trees to the front of the building.

Just a few steps away, with level access, you will find a variety of restaurants which are open all year, with local seafood top of the menu. However, the menus are varied, and you can also, of course, get an excellent variety of other foods such as steaks, chicken, pizzas, etc. Or, just simply have a glass of wine and watch the world go by! During the summer months, bread, fruit, vegetables and many other delicacies are available on the port, including fresh fish, just a couple of minutes walk away. There is more commerce in the main village, including a bank, post office, bar/tabac, butchers, bakers and a well stocked Co-Op store for most provisions. Whilst it is quite possible to walk up to the main village, (and many people do!) it is not for the faint hearted; it is a comparatively short walk, but it is a very steep climb! There is a large supermarket (Super U) at Gemozac, which is a 10 minute drive, where you will find just about everything else that you may need. There are hundreds of restaurants in the various villages and towns, within a short drive, to suit every taste and pocket, ranging from the exclusive to the more simple.

The Apartment: is South facing, and is located on the 4th and 5th floors, with lift access. It commands stunning views to the front across the harbour, estuary and marshes, particularly in spring and autumn when the trees are not in leaf, and across the estuary to the rear. We accidentally stumbled on Mortagne in 2008 whilst on holiday, and instantly fell in love with the very typically French ambience; we bought the apartment to use as our own holiday home, not as a commercial venture, and it has been tastefully equipped and furnished with this in mind.
