The area benefits from a wonderful warm climate extending from March right through to October due to the effect of the Gulf Stream – it is the second sunniest area in France after the Riviera.
The local village of Mortagne has an ancient fishing heritage and in the pretty port area backed by white cliffs you will find many working fishing boats amongst the yachts.
The boulangerie and general store are a pleasant 20 minute walk or a 5 minute bike ride from Font Remy through the vineyards and there are local small bars and restaurants where you can while away the hours watching the world go by.
