About Ken & Sharon

Sharon and Ken have had their French home for 16 years. Living and working in Devon in a busy small family business we try to visit the house 4 or 5 times a year and have been making upgrades and improvements to the property over the years, its now a comfortable well equipped retreat.

Ken is an active Lions club member and several fellow Lions have visited and stayed at the house and enjoyed the peaceful setting in La Reorthe.

Ken & Sharon purchased this house in 2002

Why Ken & Sharon chose La Réorthe

La Reorthe is a small quiet village in the beautiful Vendee region of France, the house enjoys views to open countryside and the garden and pool area offer a great deal of privacy. The roads are extremely quiet and are ideal for cycling and walking.

The Nantes to Bordeaux motorway is less than 20 minutes from the house making access from most ferry ports a comfortable driving distance, and La Rochelle and Nantes airports are under 1 hour away.

The Vendee coast has miles of unspoilt beaches and most of these can be reached in under 1 hour. The combination of all the above made us choose this house and feel that it is the perfect "getaway" holiday home.

What makes this house unique

The house is a large comfortable property, which has been renovated, furnished and decorated to a very high standard. We are constantly making improvements and redecorating, last year the kitchen was completely refurbished and has just undergone a full redecoration, and new leather Tetrad sofas have been installed in the lounge. both lounges boast large flat televisions with Freesat satellite programing.

For the 2018 season a new TV sound bar has been installed, this will allow for Bluetooth connection to be made from smart phones, iPads etc to stream music from apps such as Spotify and iTunes.

A new wifi system has recently (April 2017) been installed giving Wifi throughout the whole property including the garden and the secluded pool area.

The private heated pool is set in the lower garden and has been designed using the latest technology for safety and comfort, and a large purpose designed decking area has been constructed to compliment the pool in a stunning private sheltered location.

In 2011 the main bathroom underwent major refurbishment, and new outside dining area constructed. Although a peaceful location the towns of St Hermine and Chantonnay are only a short drive away offering supermarkets, banks, restaurants.

Guestbook comments from the owner

"Congratulations you are allowed to feel very smug indeed for having chosen to stay in this lovely house, lovely area and just simply enjoy your stay".

We have been to France 4 times on holiday and this is the best house we have stayed in. We did not want for anything. A most spacious house, comfortable, large rooms and a wonderful garden. Ken and Sharon, what a wonderful house you have."

"We have returned for our second visit and we were really impressed with all the improvements to an already beautiful house. We have really enjoyed our stay and the weather has been great"

"We've had a lovely holiday, you have a wonderful house that has a welcome feel as soon as you come through the door - so well equipped too. It's a haven to come home to after days exploring"

Home from Home!

  • 5 of 5

Such a beautiful house, tastefully decorated, has everything you need for your holiday, including British TV!! The pool is fantastic, the location so peaceful, but I laugh at the memory of being made jump every day at 7.30pm when the church bells were rung! That's when we were usually sat with a full BBQ belly having a quiet read! Natalie must work like a trooper getting the house clean and tidy because it was spotless! And I should know as I am a B&B proprietor/chief cook/cleaner and bottle washer...The village is perfectly located for the supermarkets and days out, La Rochelle and Marais Poitevin are within easy drive and the O'Gliss Water Park is just AMAZING!! You have great taste in décor and have a great idea as to what people need on their holidays, thank you! We are just so jealous as we always talk of our own little place in France, and you have made us more determined than ever to do it! I would highly recommend to anyone, so if you are reading this, get on with it and book it before you lose out!

Owner's Response: Hi Melanie, so many thanks for your glowing review, so pleased you had a great time. We try to make the house as welcoming as possible as we visit the house 5 or 6 times a year ourselves. After 15 years Sharon still finds projects for me to complete to make sure I don't get bored so if you decide to visit again you will no doubt see further changes. Ken & Sharon

A Beautiful Home in Peaceful Surroundings

  • 5 of 5

We were not disappointed with our choice, in fact we were very impressed with No. 19. Ken & Sharon have done themselves proud with this little piece of paradise. The house is everything u cld wish for and then some. The interior is well appointed, lovely large rooms, good quality furnishings and utensils. Everything was thought of and u want for nothing, well, except food obviously lol. Men and kids, (think theyre the same arent they?) will love the 2 LARGE TVs, not to forget the huge array of DVDs & books! The house sits in a lovely quiet location, with double gates to lock u away from the world. Every day we sat outside to eat under the covered dining area and I hv to say the photo does not do it justice, it's larger than it looks. Every day we hit the swimming pool, morning, noon or evening, fabulous space, good size, lots of loungers, lovely view and completely private. I would say it's very tranquil, but, with 3 kids in the pool I think I'll leave that bit out! BUT, yes, it's also very peaceful down there too. We were a goup of 7, 4 adults, 3 kids and there was more than enough space with plenty left over.

The house is close to a lot of points of interest, even the Loire is only 1.1/2 hours away, with La Rochelle an hours travel, but, if you don't wish to travel that long, no problem, Puy Du Fou (a must) is only 40 mins away whilst closer to home there is a plethora of go sees. Very pretty countryside and some great eateries too, although, the best food was cooked on the barbeque (of course!). Fabulous supermarkets in either direction. You will absolutely not be disappointed renting this property. The holidays that we book are 99% holiday rentals (and we have rented a lot) and I can honestly say I give this 5 Stars (+1) ;).

A beautiful house, you won't want to leave.

  • 5 of 5

We cannot recommend this property too highly. It had absolutely everything we could ever need, as well as being spotlessly clean and very homely. The house is very rustic yet having all the mod cons. The rooms were large, spacious and sympathetically decorated and if needed log burners .

The gardens and outlook were stunning. We enjoyed watching the wildlife and got to know our neighbouring cows. The weather was kind to us so we took full advantage of the excellent pool facilities.

The village is very quiet and peaceful and has a lovely old church and even the local graveyard is well worth a visit.

The owners were excellent in providing us full information both before and during our trip.

Before arriving we had intended to take trips to various places around La Reorthe, but loved the house so much we hardly moved all week. Thank you Ken and Sharon.

The Vendee offers a fantastic coast line most of which is accessible in under 1 hour by car. The beaches are many and varied and we would recommend reading our visitors book on arrival which is full of recommendations.


La Rochelle and Nantes airports are approxinatlely 1 hour away. By car the house is 260 miles from Roscoff (approx 4.5 Hours) and 250 miles from Caen, Most of the roads are dual carriage way or motorway. Due to the location of the property we would advise that a car would be required.


The charming town of Chantonnay is about 5 miles away and offers supermarkets, banks, shops and restaurants.

The Grand Park at Puy Du Fou is less than 1 hour away and is a must visit, has been voted best theme park in the world 2012, ensure that you allow at least 1 full day to visit this attraction, there is nothing in the UK to compare this to and we guarantee you will not be disappointed.

Further Details:

There are no shops in La Reorthe, there is however a boulangerie in the next village (Feole) which is 3 minutes by car or 5 minutes on bike.

For the more serious shopper La Rochelle is 1 hour away by car and has many designer and boutique shops as well as a fantastic choice of restaurants to choose from.
