We are family of three permanently living at our property in France since 2011 - the year we completed our house . We love the open countryside, gardening, fishing, swimming and watching and listening to the wild life. This is a very safe and friendly environment for bringing up our 13 years old son. We also have a dog called Lily. These beautiful Lakeside Gites provide the perfect setting for a holiday with the lake facing gardens overlooking the stunning Vendéen countryside. There is a large heated pool and a privately owned fishing lake for leisure fishing.Stay with us in our newly developed Lakeside Gites complex.

For whatever the reason you are visiting the Vendée - just for a great holiday, searching for a second home or for any other special interest – we are always happy to share our knowledge of the region, places of interest, good restaurants etc as well as assist with the French language.
