We stayed for week during June 2012. We booked Relais du Plessis for the price and self catering aspect. On the website the complex seemed a pleasant looking place. Our apartment was one bedroom and was decorated to a modern fashion, There was an open sitting room kitchen area, separate toilet and bathroom. The apartment was also clean and we were aware before we went it was up to you to clean the place at the end of your stay. The onsite restaurant was helpful for breakfast on the first morning. It was close to a La Marche supermarket (2-3 minute drive) which made it easy to stock up on food. The centre of Richelieu was a short walking distance. The town was very quiet and quaint, however it did have a couple of nice bakeries and bars. The staff at reception were helpful and either had a good grasp of English, or enough to communicate what was needed. The complex was very family orientated, however the noise levels were low with not too many shrieking children. The kitchen was poorly equipped for self catering. There was a combi microwave and hob, and that was all! The combi microwave couldn't toast a fly even if it tried. There was no kettle to boil water, so we used a pan. Considering this place plays on its virtues on being a 'green resort'. Having to use a hob for hot water is not as efficient as a kettle. The kitchen severely affected our ability to cater for ourselves. The weather was poor at the time, the little heater in the room was really useful for keeping us warm. I would imagine in hot weather the apartment would keep cool. Overall we enjoyed our stay, but would not use the place again due to the kitchen facilities. (Beware the killer orange slugs, they love baguettes)
