Located in the beautiful south Vendée, part of the Loire region, our 'petit chateau' is steeped in history.  The entire residential history of the main house is recorded and dates back to 1341.  Some of the external features - including a medieval vaulted cellar - date back to the 11th century. The perfect place as a base for exploring south Vendée - Puy du Fou, Marais Poitevin, Mervent Forest, Futuroscope, La Rochelle, Vouvant and other beautiful towns and the spectacular Atlantic coast, all within an hour away. Far more than your standard self-catering gites, we offer a spacious and luxurious setting for your holiday within our 3 bedrooms, all with ensuite shower-rooms.  Tastefully decorated with all the usual added extras, we are targeting repeat visitors and those that do enjoy and appreciate quality.  We are ideally suited to that 'special occasion' and, depending on availability, can offer extra services such as evening meals and picnic lunches.  Chateau Le Retail is available for either up to 6 or 4 guests, (for a min. 3 nights & open all year) you will have sole occupancy of your gite in a beautiful relaxing countryside location.   For up to 4 guests, an open plan spacious lounge, dining and kitchen area is supplimented by 2 large bedrooms, both with private ensuite facilities and King size beds. For 5 or 6 guests a further lounge and mezzanine area become available, offering a third Superking bed and a further ensuite shower-room. Bed linen, bathroom & beach towels are all provided. UK TV, DVDs, a BBQ and a complimentary GPS for your car if required, are all available for use. Parking and wifi are provided for free. Whilst it's necessary to have a car to enjoy the area fully there are many quiet roads and walking and cycling paths accessible directly from your gite.  Of course you may just want to come for the food, the wine and to spend your time relaxing and enjoying the sunshine and the blissful peace and quiet of life in rural France.

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.  The historic and beautiful towns of La Rochelle, Vouvant and Fontenay Le Comte are all easily accessible, with many local markets and historic sites to visits throughout the area.   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.
