About the Owner/Advertiser, Mrs Lin Barrow

We followed our dream in 2004 and bought a house in France. We then proceeded to adapt the house to be a 4 bed B&B and create a new accessible self-catering gite. Now after 14 years of running the B&B, we have decided to cool down a bit and have changed half of the house in to another self-catering apartment, sleeping up to 4. It now gives us more time to pursue of passions of gardening, music and art and also to explore the beautiful region in the sunshine!<br/>

Year property purchased 2004
Why this location? We chose this area because it has so much to offer. In each directions the landscape changes. We are close to many attractions, beaches are less then an hour away. Plus the beautiful and historic La Rochelle is only 35 minutes away. Not forgetting the wonderful attraction of the Grand Park of Puy Du Fou.

We are also only 3 hours from St Malo port and have 3 airports surrounding us (La Rochelle being the nearest).
Our property is in the centre of a charming little village, which is just what we wanted, with a shop, cafe/bar and bakers all within walking distance.
We have joined clubs and associations in the village, which has been a great way to meet the locals and become part of the village.
The adventure continues.....................
Unique benefits of property The 2 bedrooms both have en suite shower rooms, so if you are coming as 2 couples there is no sharing bathrooms.
There is a lovely sunny terrace to enjoy your glass of 'vin' and devour the wonderful seafood that is so delicious here.
With our other gite, Le Carabi, being on the same site, it is possible for 2 families or friends to holiday together, yet still have your own privacy with separate lodgings (will accommodate up to 8 people, 4 in each).

La Rochelle

Le Carabi is only 35 mins drive from the beautiful port town of La Rochelle, steeped in history, with beautiful renaissance buildings and the sturdy protective towers guarding the port. Watch the world go by while sitting on the harbour front, tucking in to Moules et frites-Perfect!

Puy du Fou

An amazing park within which are 6 amazing shows, Vikings, gladiators. birds of prey to name just some of the spectacular sites to see. Not to missed!

The 'Marais Poitevin'

A beautiful nature reserve with man-made canals traversing the lovely country side, with pretty gems of villages nestling within it. Relax by taking a boat ride along the peaceful canals and view the amazing bird and wildlife along the canal banks.

The Vendeen Beaches

The Vendee has some of the best beaches in France, including La Tranche sur Mer, La Faute Sur Mer and the famous vendee Globe town of Les Sables D'lonne. All with golden sands and blue skies.

Vouvant Village of painters

Only 25 minutes away you will find the very pretty medieval village of Vouvant, dubbed the village of painters due to its number of galleries and artists being attracted there. The view from the medieval ramparts are stunning.
