La Marcotte


Are you looking for a place for family holidays in France? 

Able to greet up to 9 people, the Marcotte is a true cabinet of curiosities!  In this charmingly outdated house where Russian influence is present, the owners who were collectors, accumulated travel souvenirs, antique furniture and paintings of various genres. Here, apart from the bedding, nothing has changed since the seventies. This old family home makes you feel like you are travelling into the heart of an old Russian tale. The three rooms in the main house and the two rooms in the annex, all have their own personality. You will be surprised by the variety of knick-knacks, and you can enjoy observing the different motifs of Indian material on the walls: each object seems to have its own story. In winter, laze in the big overstuffed armchairs close to the fireplace: in the vast living room, the English furniture creates an intimate and warm atmosphere. In summer, enjoy the huge swimming pool with a luncheon under the shade of the hundred-year-old catalpa tree facing the garden. It has been hailed by a number of magazines.
