About the Owner/Advertiser, Mrs Karen Stanton

We have been travelling to France for many years and have dreamed of purchasing a home for our family. It all came together finally last year and we are delighted that La Grateliere is now a wonderful second home for ourselves and our family.

Year property purchased 2017
Why this location? The Vendee region is just fantastic! It is a relatively short journey from St Malo, Le Havre & Caen (3 to 4 hours) but the weather here is just like being in the South! There is so much to do in a very short drive time from the house and you can be on the fabulous Vendee beaches or visit Ile de Re in no time... The peaceful countryside location of La Grateliere with the stunning views and running/riding potential of the Gatine Hills made us fall in love with this lovely house but still being in close proximity of a town with good supermarkets, vets etc made it just perfect...
Unique benefits of property There is no nicer place to switch off and relax
