About the Owner/Advertiser, Mrs Catherine Parkinson

I am originally from Paris, but moved to the Vendée from England in 2004 with my British husband and our 3 children, leaving our teaching posts, to become fully involved in the running of a successful gîte business, Dolphin Gîtes.

Year property purchased 2002
Why this location? I know the area very well, holidaying in the Vendée throughout my childhood. We love the charm of the Vendeen countryside and the beautiful sandy beaches. The Vendée is in easy travelling distance from the UK and benefits from a microclimate.
Unique benefits of property The Laurels is a charming gîte, ideal for a couple, with beautiful views, opening on to the rear gardens. Facilities include free wi-fi, secure parking on site, UK tv, private patio area with bbq, a few steps away from the shared heated swimming pool.
