About Lucy Cussans
We live in London with our four children (aged 9 to 21) and have been going to Chez Marechaux for around 25 years. My brother-in- law and his wife live next door and look after the house when we are not there.
Lucy Cussans purchased this House in 2009
Why Lucy Cussans chose Saint-Georges-des-Agoรปts
Our house has everything you need to have a terrific holiday. We love the area, which is very peaceful with fabulous far reaching views. We put in a new pool, hot tub and landscaped the garden around 5 years ago and we are all very happy relaxing there. There are many wonderful places to visit, including local markets, historic towns, beaches, the famous zoo at Palmyre, tree climbing by the beach. Go-karting has become a favourite activity with our teenagers, and it is around 10 minutes drive away. There is a great little playground around a 2 minute drive away with a zip wire, slides etc and our 9 year old still really enjoys going there. The local supermarket (the Superu) is excellent and we do all our shopping there.
What makes this House unique
Very few properties will have a 14m pool for sole use, in addition to a hot tub which is always very popular. Many of our visitors come for return trips!

BRILLIANT One of the nicest houses we have stayed
On our arrival we were shown round by Thomas (who was lovely, and ever helpful throughout our stay ). We all felt that the photo's didn't do the house justice, it was great. We all fell in love with the covered raised eating area and spent many happy hours, eating, drinking, and playing games there.
The pool was a wonderful hit with all the family, and the seating area was very spacious and comfortable, many happy hours spent there as well. All in all one of the nicest houses we have stayed in. We hope to return in a couple of years time if Lucy will have us .
We stayed at the house for a week with a group of friends and had an amazing time. The house is beautiful, the pool and hot tub are great to relax in and the views are stunning all around. Kitchen well equipped and perfect for big group dinners looking out over the countryside
Great place for fun and relaxation!
This is a superb house. It has everything you need for a family holiday. Loads to keep the children entertained including the hot tub, a trampoline and the amazing infinity pool. The house has a well equipped kitchen (dishwasher saved the horrors of washing up) and living room (PlayStation and a huge collection of DVDs). The bedrooms are really spacious and comfortable. Thomas was a great help with all things pool related and is very knowledgeable on the local area. The supermarket is only a 6km drive away and stocks everything you could ever need. Pizza Feu Feu in Mortagne sur Gironde is well worth trying and the zoo in Palmyre is worth visiting too. The booking process was really easy and Lucy always replied to emails and queries quickly. Hopefully we'll return in the future.
Relaxation at Les Marechaux
Les Marechaux combines modern facilities with rustic charm in a secluded, relaxing location.
The house has a large open-plan kitchen/dining area with modern appliances. Outside, beyond the courtyard is a terrace with an additional dining table and wonderful views over surrounding countryside.
Downstairs is a TV/games room with piano which serves as a lovely evening room or extra space in which younger guests can enjoy themselves.
Our twin bedroom was quaint and comfortable with wooden window shutters.
Close to the house is a wonderful infinity pool with adjacent hot tub, sun loungers and wall-mounted parasols, creating a stylish and relaxing ambiance.
The gardens, with bushes of lavender, oleander and herbs provide a colourful and fragrant backdrop.
A barbecue area with garden swing is a welcome touch for outdoor dining.
Children can also enjoy the garden tree swing and trampoline.
The house is sufficiently spacious for a large party of people, (including children), to enjoy without constraint.
Although in a secluded and private location, a supermarket is conveniently situated only a few minutes drive away.
Wonderful holiday of fun and relaxation!
We had an incredible stay at this property; a beautiful house which was perfect for our holiday. The property was in immaculate condition and very well-maintained, with great facilities and the description was completely accurate. We had excellent customer service throughout our stay, with Thomas from next door always on hand to help with any of our needs.
I would have no hesitation in recommending this property to a friend or relative. We went to a lovely local restaurant in Jonzac about a 20 minute drive away which served delicious steak, but otherwise we made the most of the house's excellent facilities, which included a heated swimming pool, hot tub, boules and a barbecue. An incredible house which I would love to visit again in the future.
What a beautiful place!
We had the most relaxed week, chilling out in the sun and soaking up the tranquility of the French countryside. The house is really pretty and practical but maintains an authentic family atmosphere. The pool is perfectly clear and easily big enough for the whole family. The hot tub makes for a relaxing evening under the stars (zero light pollution!) and has an uninterrupted view over the local vineyards. I honestly can't recommend this place enough, would happily go back again and again.
10 minute drive to the Gironde where there is restaurant, fishing and canoeing. 40 minutes to the fabulous beaches e.g. Royan
50 minutes drive from Bordeaux and 1 hour from St Rochelle airports. 4.5 hours from St Malo. Use of a car is recommended as the local supermarket is around an 8 minute drive away
Around 10 minute drive to Mirambeau and the local supermarket. Go-karting 15 minutes, Saint 45 minutes, Talmont 40 minutes, Royan 40 minutes, Bordeaux 50 minutes.
Excellent supermarket in Mirambeau, also a bank and several small shops and cafes/bars.
