We spend part of each year in France and part living on the marina so may not always be around. However, we have friends who look after the lodge bookings, cleaning and who will be the contact point to greet guests and provide the lodge keys and marina access fob. We can also be contacted by phone.
During 2017 there are further developments of the marina with the construction of new shops, restaurant and offices. There are also three new lodges due to be sited near to Willow Lodge.
Although the usual booking period is for seven nights we also may offer flexibility for shorter three or four night breaks at certain times. Please contact us to see if we can help.
Please respect the 10 mph speed limit around the marina
