About the Owner

We live in London with our four children (aged 9 to 21) and have been going to Chez Marechaux for around 20 years. My brother-in- law and his wife live next door and look after it when we are not there.

Relaxation at Les Marechaux

  • 5 of 5

Les Marechaux combines modern facilities with rustic charm in a secluded, relaxing location.

The house has a large open-plan kitchen/dining area with modern appliances. Outside, beyond the courtyard is a terrace with an additional dining table and wonderful views over surrounding countryside.

Downstairs is a TV/games room with piano which serves as a lovely evening room or extra space in which younger guests can enjoy themselves.

Our twin bedroom was quaint and comfortable with wooden window shutters.

Close to the house is a wonderful infinity pool with adjacent hot tub, sun loungers and wall-mounted parasols, creating a stylish and relaxing ambiance.

The gardens, with bushes of lavender, oleander and herbs provide a colourful and fragrant backdrop.

A barbecue area with garden swing is a welcome touch for outdoor dining.

Children can also enjoy the garden tree swing and trampoline.

The house is sufficiently spacious for a large party of people, (including children), to enjoy without constraint.

Although in a secluded and private location, a supermarket is conveniently situated only a few minutes drive away.

Highly recommended.

What a beautiful place!

  • 5 of 5

We had the most relaxed week, chilling out in the sun and soaking up the tranquility of the French countryside. The house is really pretty and practical but maintains an authentic family atmosphere. The pool is perfectly clear and easily big enough for the whole family. The hot tub makes for a relaxing evening under the stars (zero light pollution!) and has an uninterrupted view over the local vineyards. I honestly can't recommend this place enough, would happily go back again and again.

Wonderful holiday of fun and relaxation!

  • 5 of 5

We had an incredible stay at this property; a beautiful house which was perfect for our holiday. The property was in immaculate condition and very well-maintained, with great facilities and the description was completely accurate. We had excellent customer service throughout our stay, with Thomas from next door always on hand to help with any of our needs.

I would have no hesitation in recommending this property to a friend or relative. We went to a lovely local restaurant in Jonzac about a 20 minute drive away which served delicious steak, but otherwise we made the most of the house's excellent facilities, which included a heated swimming pool, hot tub, boules and a barbecue. An incredible house which I would love to visit again in the future.

Great place for fun and relaxation!

  • 5 of 5

This is a superb house. It has everything you need for a family holiday. Loads to keep the children entertained including the hot tub, a trampoline and the amazing infinity pool. The house has a well equipped kitchen (dishwasher saved the horrors of washing up) and living room (PlayStation and a huge collection of DVDs). The bedrooms are really spacious and comfortable. Thomas was a great help with all things pool related and is very knowledgeable on the local area. The supermarket is only a 6km drive away and stocks everything you could ever need. Pizza Feu Feu in Mortagne sur Gironde is well worth trying and the zoo in Palmyre is worth visiting too. The booking process was really easy and Lucy always replied to emails and queries quickly. Hopefully we'll return in the future.

Beautiful family home with huge pool.

  • 5 of 5

We have stayed at this beautiful family home two years in a row. House is very well laid out with absolutely everything you'd ever need - and has plenty of living/entertaining space for a large family. Breathtaking & uninterrupted views across fields. Huge infinity pool with a hot tub too. An idyllic spot - very peaceful & a hugely relaxing place to spend a holiday.

A relaxing break in the sunshine

  • 5 of 5

The area where this property is located is very idyllic and has a classic French village feel. The property itself is beautifully decorated, and has many unique aspects which cater for many different tastes.

I particularly enjoyed spending lazy afternoons reading in the outdoor swinging chair. There is also a wonderful games/TV/music room, ideal for the occasional rainy day!

When we arrived, the property was clean, homely and welcoming. There is everything you could possibly need within a fairly short distance. The local supermarket is nearby, and there are plenty of facilities for making and enjoying the local cuisine in the property.

This was a wonderful place to spend a relaxing week, taking time out from a busy schedule. I came home feeling fully refreshed, and I would love to return soon! Highly recommended!!

From the Owner

We love the area which is very peaceful with fabulous far reaching views. We put in a new pool, hot tub and landscaped the garden around 5 years ago and we are all very happy relaxing there. There are also wonderful places to visit, local markets, historic towns, beaches, the famous zoo at Palmyre, tree climbing by the beach. Go-karting has become a favourite activity with our teenagers and it is around 10 minutes drive away. There is a great little playground around a 2 minute drive away with a zip wire, slides etc and our 9 year old still really enjoys going there. The local supermarket (the Superu) is really good and we do all our shopping there.
