Our family enjoyed 14 days of sun and relaxation at this comfortable and well-equipped house in the very quiet hamlet of Le Coudreau.The excellent pool was invaluable in the very hot weather we experienced and our grandson learned to swim without armbands during the holiday.The garden was secure so our dog could roam free and it was not overlooked---nor was the pool.The supermarket at Benet was a few minutes drive and there were plenty of restaurants within striking distance--we found TripAdvisor useful for suggesting restaurants in any town or village visited.The broadband/WiFi was first-class and noticeably quicker in this rural location than in our home in West Surrey.The coast was about 50 minutes drive and the Marais Poitevin countryside with its many rivers and canals was beautiful.
All in all an excellent base for a holiday in a very nice part of France.
We had a wonderful holiday at La Retraite. We were a large group including five young children. The house is spacious and very well equipped. It felt like a home rather than a rental property. It has lovely extensive gardens and is very secure. The excellent, well maintained pool was a great highlight, especially for the children. The owner provided extra equipment and items to enhance our stay. We were able to equip everyone with bikes from the garage. The property is in a rural location but has good access to the coast including two of our favourite places, La Rochelle and the Ile de Re. We hope to return again to this lovely place.
