My husband and I took early retirement to escape the stress and frustration of living in the South of England. The calm and relaxing lifestyle here in the Vendee was a complete change from what we were used to. Our rural setting provides tranquillity when we need it but within easy reach are lively towns and beautiful beaches. We live on-site in a 200 year old converted barn and are available for assistance or advice should you need it.
