What a great choice we made with this property for our Honeymoon. Obviously we wanted this holiday to be special and it certainly was. The owners Tove and Alan were very friendly and made our week lovely in all sorts of ways. The apartment is about 10 minutes drive from La Rochelle, within reach of an excellent park and ride, or cheap and easy town centre parking. There is also a bus from very close to the apartment. The nearby beach, Chatelaillon Plage is also a 10 minute drive away, this is large and long sandy beach with several beach restaurants and beach side cafes and restaurants. I thoroughly enjoyed walking to the bakers each morning which is a 3 minute walk away, and which offers everything you could want in bread and cakes. For a bigger shop, there is also an enormous Carrefour supermarket on the way to Chataillon Plage where you will find everything you want. You will NOT be disappointed with La Desirada.

Stayed here last year and loved the area. Rural feel yet within a well-served village on the edge of La Rochelle, with its lively mix of restaurants & bars and easy access to the stunning Ile de Re. Chatelaillon Beach was nearby. We spent most of our time at the apartment sitting in the sunny garden, fringed with grape vines and fruit trees. We'll keep coming back.
