About the Owner
We are John and Gina and live near Nottingham , we have 2 teenage girls. After spending many holidays at various campsites and gites in the area, we bought our house 3 years ago.We had lots of house hunting jaunts to different areas of France over the years but came back to the Vendee! There is so much diversity such as countryside, rivers, lakes, beaches, towns all within easy reach! John escapes to France to do DIY but seems to find more time having aperos with the neighbours. They recently got married and used the garden for the reception, oh and all the guests were in fancy dress! I just love sitting in my pj's on the terrace having breakfast,in the evening listening to the church bells with a large glass of wine and watching the girls kick a ball around the garden (tomboys) heaven!
