The house is located in a beautiful part of France, with easy access to beaches and islands, as well as the historic city of La Rochelle (which has a very fine rugby team). The pool and garden are a splendid bonus, especially for the younger members of our family who were able to 'explore' in a totally safe environment. Marsais is peaceful and surrounding villages have a variety of amenities. Sugeres is within easy driving distance and is well worth visiting.
The house itself combines traditional French architecture with modern amenities beautifully. So much so, we were happy to spend days enjoying the pool and garden; and barbecueing supper to top things off. The kitchen is well equipped and the accomodation is comfortable. It was sometimes useful to have two bathrooms.
All in all, we had a fantastic holiday; and are considering re-visiting in future years.
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.
