Hello, We are Andrew and Ruth,
We moved to France from Guernsey in April 2002 with our two children Denham and Fern, then aged 2 and 9 months respectively.
We have since been running the gites and enjoying the lovely micro climate that the Vendee has to offer.
Ruth Rogers purchased this cottage in 2002
We decided to buy a property in St Juire Champgillon because we liked the rural location and the fact that we had plenty of garden, which would be ideal for the gites as it enables children lots of space to play in.
The property is easily accessible from the main roads, but far enough away to offer tranquility with an abundance of tracks and lanes suitable for walking and cycling.
We also have easy access to the beaches and local attractions like Puy du Fou (well worth the visit), but at the end of the day you can leave the hustle and bustle and just come back and chill out with a beer or a glass of wine.
2011 the Tour de France cyclists raced straight past our front door, this was another life experience for us something we had never seen before, we made a day of it with friends.
The benefits of staying with us here at La Guillemandiere are that we have spacious gites, well equipped with ample parking.
For the children (or adults alike!) we have a large enclosed swimming pool with childrens pool, large gardens with the childrens play area, boule court and playhouse, and a large trampoline with safety net surround.
You can enjoy the abundance of fruit and nut trees in the garden, help youselves.
The adjacent fields are filled with either wheat, maize or sunflowers and make for good photographs.
At dusk the odd deer can be seen as well as magnificent sunsets.

Our holiday here was amazing- Ruth And Andy were perfect hosts and very welcoming and kind with lots of advice on places to go and see! We have two young girls who absolutely loved our holiday here- the swimming pool was ideal with superb views and cleaned daily- the gardens were lovely with trampoline and swing set. The gite was great with English TV which was nice- we will defiantly think about going back- thank you for making our holiday something great to remember 👍😊😊😊
We had the best holiday here. We stayed in the smaller gite, which sleeps 4. It was comfortable & well equipped. The grounds make this place special. The pool is fantastic & my children loved the trampoline, play park & basketball, with loads of room for running around. The hosts were really helpful, giving us recommendations for places to eat. The gites are near a small pretty village with a lovely market & a bread van came most mornings with gorgeous bread & pastries. I have already recommended this gite to friends & family & will definitely be coming back!
We were very disappointed with the quality of accommodation presented to us at Le Petit Recoin. The listing description does not mention that the bbq area for this gite is road side within metres of passing traffic. Guests should be aware that the bedrooms are in an attic space and are very poorly ventilated. The twin bedroom only had one small velux window and there was no pole to allow guests to open this. The wooden beds in this room have a blue covering that was peeling off. The bathroom facilities, in particular the shower were off putting. The shower door did not close properly and was not clean. The kitchen area was not well equipped, as advertised and needed further cleaning. I would not recommend this gite as a pleasant holiday experience.
spent a very enjoyable week here. The gite (Sapin) was homely and well appointed. The on site owners Andrew and Ruth were helpful, attentive and very friendly. The setting is perfect for families with children as the pool is great and the surroundings charming
