About Property Manager
We have embraced a change in lifestyle, culture and weather(!) relocating to Chateau Le Retail in August 2016 from north east Scotland where we both worked within the Oil and Gas Industry. Doug continues to travel to work and Pauline now focuses on hosting our new business venture. South Vendée, Pays de la Loire, is an extremely active tourist area. Chateau Le Retail is the ideal base for your vacation in with easy access to many key tourist attractions including; world renowned theme parks (Puy du Fou, Futuoroscope), the 'Green Venice' Marais Poitevin, the spectacular Atlantic coast with its beautiful beaches and maritime activities, all within an hour away. Of course there is also the amazing Loire valley - famous for its incredible wine and breathtaking chateaux's and gardens.

Mervent forest is only 12km away with cycling and walking tracks in abundance along with water activities, climbing, archery, horse-riding, a great local zoo and an activity park for children.
