Large house - we were 2 couples & felt it gave everybody enough space & privacy; the same probably applies to a large family. Private courtyard good for evenings as the sun goes down. Plenty of places to visit within 1 hours driving distance. Richelieu is itself an interesting small town with plenty of shops & places to eat within...

Management response:

Thank you! I'm glad you all enjoyed your holiday in Richelieu.

great house,and a lovely courtyard garden.my grandaughter loved the paddle pool,which was needed as the sun shone all week.this house ticked all the boxes for us for location to bars,restaurants,the park,and local attractions.but for me to open the doors from the square to to the peace and tranquility of the house was quite magical

Management response:

Swimming pools not allowed by Batiments de France in Town of Richelieu! My family also just love the paddling pool-I put my blow up recliner in it and spend hours with my book! So glad you all enjoyed your holiday.

Richelieu is a peaceful town, but with just about everything you need for a fantastic family holiday. Courtyard doors open onto the market square, with all of the towns attractions virtually on your doorstep, but the house itself is secluded and the garden area private. We enjoyed the delightful park and excellent local public pool.The best restaurant in town, a...

Management response:

Thank you! It's the reason we bought the house here rather than our original first choice of seaside Vendee area.

About the neighborhood
Richelieu is an ideal location for a quiet, relaxing holiday in a typical French market town. It is called the garden of France and the twice weekly market in les Halles reflects this with local farmers selling their produce. There are also fetes, concerts, wine fairs and broquante days held in the Place du Marche and in surrounding villages. Details can always be obtained from the Tourist office or Richelieu website.<BR>The town itself is steeped in history and the newly opened Espace Richelieu in the Grand Rue and interactive visit at Chinon Castle are worth visiting soon after arrival to learn about the history of the area.<BR>The Parc Richelieu is a huge, peaceful area to cycle and walk at any time of year. It is rarely busy and also great for children and dogs to play and... more
