OUR B&B HAS TWO ROOMS Les Dimes (sleeps 2) and Hortensia (sleeps 2).

Probably built over 200 years ago there is still speculation about its original purpose. Located at the foot of the former chateau, it possbily was used as a storage for the 'dimes' or payment of taxes to the owner.
The property is a rare old Vendée longère, with white washed walls and shutters. Guest accommodation is situated with independent access and has been totally renovated this year to maintain the charm of the property.

"The perfect place, with the perfect hosts and settings."
We had an amazing week in this property.
Everything is just beautiful and so well presented. Jacqueline and Gilles are wonderful people who would go beyond to make you feel at home. I am not even starting on the food, cooked with love and passion by Gilles!!
You will not find this kind of quality meals (including drinks) anywhere around the area. The quality is second to none!!
We met wonderful people and hope to stay friends.
I would highly recommend Le Clos du Marais to whoever wants to spend a relaxing time in a beautiful environment, far away from the seaside crowd!!
Thank you again.

"Best Family Holiday Ever!"
The website looked great and when we arrived, it was even lovelier. Two luxury rooms with great bathrooms, fluffy towels and wifi access. We came with two teenagers so they had their own space which they appreciated. The pool was warm and inviting and we swam every day. The property borders the Marais marshes so we had great walks, saw storks, egrets, water voles, woodpeckers, owls and heard the frogs. The breakfast was fantastic with fresh selection of different croissants, bread and toast every day with a selection of freshly made jams. A nice pot of tea for mum too! And then evening dinner... We were truly spoilt, Gil's cooking was a delight. Started with drinks and nibbles, three courses and a bottle of wine, experiencing food from the area and an explanation of everything we ate. We liked it so much we had dinner every night. The table was laid beautifully and changing in theme regularly. Jacqueline & Gil were delightful hosts and nothing was too much trouble and great advice about where to visit. We were 15-20 minutes to the beach and there were a good variety from calm to surfing. Being with two teenagers they were happy mixing swimming with watching films and playing games on their handheld devices, we didn't have an I'm bored once so happy parents too. We made the Caen Ferry in 3.5 hours on the motorway. On our way home we voted it our best ever family holiday.

We would thoroughly recommend this B&B. The decor is very tasteful,the beds extremely comfortable and we enjoyed a peaceful night's sleep. The heated swimming pool was a delight and the hosts charming. We would highly recommend the evening meal which was beautifully cooked and amazing value for money.We will definitely be back.

"Lovely accomodation - Couldn't be more helpful."
We took both of Gils' two rooms as we were travelling with our children aged 13 and 8. The rooms are recently refurbished, both beautiful and lovely and cool. The pool is a big bonus.
Gil couldn't be a better host - up early ensuring we had fresh pastries, candles on a birthday brioche for our son and he even offered to cook us dinner on two of our busier days. An experience not to be missed. His English is very good, but he endeavours to ensure the experience stays very French. Our children are still in love with Hortense.........

"Fantastic, comfortable, wonderful food and a great welcome"
Arrived to a very warm welcome by Jacqueline and Gil our hoists. Spent an afternoon in their fantastic warm pool. The room was beautifully decorated with loads of detail. We opted for an evening meal, really high standard, great value and a lovely setting. Most importantly the bed was really comfortable and the towels both large and thick. We had a wonderful stay and defiantly would return and recommend to our friends.
Local area very beautiful, good walks and great for bird spotting.
