Clio II-1.2 Dynamique-Doesn't Start!

Basically my Clio wont start when I haven't used it for about four days. Initially I thought this was a bettery problem, although having tested the battery the voltage reading didn't seem to be decreasing from one day to the next. I have replaced the battery now -just in case, and still the same problem.
When I give it a tiny bit of juice from jump starting it seems to start straight away though, and before this the engine doesn't want to even tick over.
I was wondering if it's a starting motor fault, but one would think that would mean it either wouldn't start at all or would not start randomly-not after four days. I think its got to be due to an electrical leakage but not sure where so any help would be appreciated.
Btw, I'm new to this so hopefully this is in the right place.
