Hello ! We are Emmanuel and Marie. We welcome you in La Maison Racaud which we have tried to make well thought out and which we keep well cared for ourselves. The location is convenient for everything with lovely local shops at the end of the street, the seafront and beach within a short stroll and all that La Rochelle has to offer within an easy 15 minute walk. Or slightly longer when young children get distracted by the lovely animal park on the way ;-) The kitchen is well equipped and we prepare, before your arrival, little extras like homemade jam and a tea tray laid out for your arrival. Our style: We will make sure that you really can't fault the house or the warm welcome that we will give you. We do our best so that It will be one of the better holiday rentals you've used. ****** The house is located in La Rochelle city, in the area called La Genette. The Casino is a 4 minute stroll away from the house, the beach is a further 3 minute stroll and the centre of the city a further 4 minutes away. The house is organized on two floors, with two terrasses and a relaxing fenced in garden where you enjoy the barbecue during summer evenings. It is ideal for a group from 4 to 9 persons with children, with the possibility to share time together or have peaceful moments individually. The house is set out with really two sleeping areas, a separate kitchen and living area, a separate TV room, and two separate shower / bathrooms; this gives everybody space. The location is very peaceful and close to shops, to the sea, to La Rochelle's historical port. 6 rooms, ** Renovated on February 2014** « The house was all we had expected. The Casino is a 4 minute stroll away from the house, the beach is a further 3 minute stroll and the centre of the city a further 4 minutes away. It was ideal for a group comprising grand parents, parents and infants. The location is very peaceful and close to shops. I would highly recommend it and would have no hesitation in returning. » Ian F. De Dublin Sep 2014 "The house is in a quiet, safe neighborhood very convenient to downtown (we walked downtown every day), and there are two small grocery stores right around the corner. The owners are a charming couple who speak perfect English and were attentive and accommodating, though completely unintrusive. All I can do is rave about this place. We referred to it always as "home. " It is clean! The rooms are good size and airy. The kitchen has everything one would need. There are two full bathrooms, one upstairs and one downstairs. There is a lovely fenced-in back yard, a new washer, dryer, dishwasher. We were sorry to leave this little piece of heaven and hope to return there again, perhaps to stay for an extended period next time. We highly recommend this home. » Phil F.
