Fantastic stay in Arcais...!!

  • 5 of 5

Thanks Jean-Luc for a brilliant 2 weeks. The house was really lovely with everything we needed. The pool was just amazing - lovely and warm and huge..!! We couldn't get the kids out of it as you know..!! :) We are still eating your wife's lovely jam and marmalade..thank you..!!

I would thoroughly recommend a visit to this property. It has everything you need. It is very private, but the hosts are available within 5 minutes if you need anything. The gardens, tennis court and pool area are lovely and secure (separate to the patio area) in case you have young children. The patio area is lovely for cool lunches under the shade of the trees. The pool was massive and the water crystal clear and lovely and warm. Inside the house are 3 upstairs bedrooms which are all very nice. There are 2 really powerful showers which is always a bonus. There's a lovely lounge and kitchen and a further room as well. The decor throughout is all very good.

The real bonus is the village and surrounding area. There are a number of restaurants (best is probably Patio d'Arcais, right opposite - 30second walk.., but you need to book early!). There is also a handy (but expensive) mini-supermarket 1 min walk away. You can hire bikes at a choice of 2 places (again walking distance from the house), and explore the Marais, and you can also hire boats...which is great fun. La Rochelle, Chatelaillon plage, Ile de Re (Plage du pas des Boeufs is great) are all well worth a visit and only 45m mins. Fouras is also really worth visiting for the beach and fort (if your kids are slightly younger) and is only 55mins.

All in all a really excellent, memorable holiday....we will most likely return..!!

Cheers, Tim

Très belle propriété,lumineuse, très agréable, très spacieuse et très confortable

  • 5 of 5

Les 6 adultes qui ont partagés cette charmante demeure durant 5 jours ont beaucoup apprécié cette location. Salons, cuisine, 3 chambres, 2 salles de bains , grands , très confortables, décores avec gôut.

Quel plaisir de se reposer dans cette propriété après quelques heures de vélo.

Quand bien même nous n'avons pu profiter de la piscine et du terrain de tennis (du fait de la saison : mi avril), nous recommandons vivement cette location. Vous ne serez pas déçu.

Qui plus est, avec des propriétaires qui vous accueillent et vous accompagnent très chaleureusement.

Et enfin calme et quiétude dans ce magnifique marais poitevin où la location est idéalement placée pour circuits à pieds, à vélo ou en barques.

Lovely and perfect!

  • 5 of 5

We really recommend this lovely house with pool. All you need is present and more! The interieur was great, we also loved the peace of the garden and the swimming pool. Kids wouldn’t leave :-). Arcais is a lovely place and also the surrounding is great. We went to rochelle and L’ile de Mer and, only 45 minutes away and you are on the beach. Thanks a lot!

grande maison de caractère à deux pas des canaux

  • 5 of 5

Un grand week-end maussade ne nous a malheureusement pas permis de profiter de la piscine ou de la terrasse, qui est superbe... Les photos sont fidèles à la réalité ! Heureusement, la maison, au cœur du village, est vaste, pleine de caractère, très bien chauffée (ce qui n'est pas toujours compatible) et d'une propreté irréprochable. Un tennis dans la propriété, un bon petit restaurant au coin de la rue, une épicerie, des barques et des vélos à louer juste à coté... Que demander de plus, d'autant que l'accueil a été fort sympathique ! Nous recommandons sans réserve !

excellent séjour

  • 5 of 5

Nous avons passé d'excellentes vacances à Arçais. Le logement - un havre de paix décoré avec goût - est parfaitement conforme à la description et les propriétaires sont charmants. La région est magnifique, nous y retournerons certainement.
