"Le Marais", located only 2-3 minutes from the heart of Daylesford is situated on a quarter of an acre of lush gardens. The main house has 2 bedrooms and two bathrooms. The cottage has an additional 2 bedrooms 1 queen size bedroom plus a triple bunk bedroom and its own bathroom and was fully renovated in 2014.

The property, with its french provincial feel provides guests with a wonderful sense of calm as they wander along the pebbled pathways through the fruit tree arbor, past the veggie patch then up to one of the outdoor undercover dining zones where guests can sit under the vines and enjoy a long lunch. The evenings at Le Marais are enchanting, with visitors able to sit beneath the gazebo and watch the twinkling lights, or fire up the pizza oven and play a few rounds of billiards in the loggia.

When the day is over unwind and cook up a feast in the generous kitchen then get comfortable around the open fireplace in the main house. Wake to bird-song by the many winged-visitors the garden attracts, then stroll up to the main street to take in a coffee or browse through Daylesford's many stores or spoil yourself and indulge in a little spa and massage pampering.

Le Marais will have you coming back to re-capture this little part of gay Paris in the heart of Victoria's spa country

Rated 1 out of 5 by from A Real Disappointment Our stay at Le Marais was extremely disappointing. On arrival the front lawn was scattered with rubbish from overfilled bins that had not been emptied. The garden was nothing like the photos, it was an overgrown, uncared for jungle habited by swarms of blow flies. On the front verandah were 2 large pink dirty laundry bags just left there. Inside the main house, what once could of been lovely, again it seemed unloved and uncared for. Although the main areas were clean, on close inspection, dust and cobwebs were in all corners and window sills of the house. Inside the wardrobe in the main bedroom, towels and linen had just been thrown in a big messy pile. The owner did not realise we had booked both the house and cottage so thankfully I had kept all the emails confirming we had, and eventually we were given access to to cottage. However as the weather was extremely hot and the cottage was not fitted with air conditioning or any fans supplied, we were unable to use it anyway. So with 3 adults, 2 kids and a baby, we had to all stay in the main house which meant that someone had to sleep on the c shaped couch. After explaining the situation to the owner we asked for a refund on the cottage and were told that since she made a mistake with the initial booking she hadn't charged us for the cottage anyway, so no refund would be given. So basically we paid for an expensive weekend away for someone to sleep on an uncomfortable couch. No sympathy from the owner and no further communication. A very very uncomfortable and disappointing stay.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Girls' Weekend After spending a perfect weekend at Le Marais with my sister, our husbands and children... I have already been compelled to return - this time with a group of girlfriends. Again, we had a wonderful time, enjoying all that Daylesford has to offer within walking distance of the property; yet a world away from everything once back at Le Marais, surrounded by the enchanting gardens and keeping warm by the outside fire place; or making pizzas in the authentic pizza oven. A true European experience! When the weather turned too cold, we were cosy and warm inside the house with everything we needed and plenty of space to relax. Thanks again to the owners and care takers who made our weekend so memorable.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Idyllic Hidden Treasure Recently I had the opportunity to stay at Le Marais with my family group of 4 adults, 4 children and a baby. This property is truly amazing from the enchanting garden to the authentic french decor throughout the house and separate cottage. As a family group, we have travelled around France and Italy, staying in villas much like Le Marais. The owners of the property have clearly spent time in these places too; as Le Marais provides you with an authentic European experience. The result is simply breath taking. I would highly recommend the charming Le Marais to families, couples, groups of friends and girls weekends. The location is unbeatable..... an easy stroll to the main street of Daylesford and equally close to the lake. Everything was perfect! We will definitely return.
