About the Owner

Our villa is owned and shared by two families who fell in love with Domaine des Fontenelles and the Vendee region after holidaying in rented gites over a number of years. Between us we have 5 kids who have all loved sharing the villa with each other and the various family and friends who have visited us over the years, creating many precious memories.

From the Owner

The villa is in the perfect location to strike the balance between relaxation and activity. The domain is peaceful and safe for the children with enough to keep them occupied while the adults relax, yet within 15 minutes we have access to great beaches and lovely seaside towns.
