About Ken & Sharon
Sharon and Ken have had their French home for 17 years. Living and working in Devon in a busy small family business we try to visit the house 4 or 5 times a year and have been making upgrades and improvements to the property over the years, its now a comfortable well equipped retreat. Ken is an active Lions club member and several fellow Lions have visited and stayed at the house and enjoyed the peaceful setting in La Reorthe.
Ken & Sharon purchased this House in 2002
Why Ken & Sharon chose La Réorthe
La Reorthe is a small quiet village in the beautiful Vendee region of France, the house enjoys views to open countryside and the garden and pool area offer a great deal of privacy. The roads are extremely quiet and are ideal for cycling and walking. The Nantes to Bordeaux motorway is less than 20 minutes from the house making access from most ferry ports a comfortable driving distance, and La Rochelle and Nantes airports are under 1 hour away. The Vendee coast has miles of unspoilt beaches and most of these can be reached in under 1 hour. The combination of all the above made us choose this house and feel that it is the perfect "getaway" holiday home.
What makes this House unique
The house is a large comfortable property, which has been renovated, furnished and decorated to a very high standard. We are constantly making improvements and redecorating, last year the kitchen was completely refurbished and has just undergone a full redecoration, and new leather Tetrad sofas have been installed in the lounge. both lounges boast large flat televisions with Freesat satellite programing. For the 2018 season a new TV sound bar has been installed, this will allow for Bluetooth connection to be made from smart phones, iPads etc to stream music from apps such as Spotify and iTunes. A new wifi system has recently (April 2017) been installed giving Wifi throughout the whole property including the garden and the secluded pool area. The private heated pool is set in the lower garden and has been designed using the latest technology for safety and comfort, and a large purpose designed decking area has been constructed to compliment the pool in a stunning private sheltered location. In 2011 the main bathroom underwent major refurbishment, and new outside dining area constructed. Although a peaceful location the towns of St Hermine and Chantonnay are only a short drive away offering supermarkets, banks, restaurants.

Beautiful house with great facilitiies
Just back from two weeks in La Réorthe and we were blown away by the quality and attention to detail in this house. It is beautifully decorated and furnished with lots of thoughtful touches. The pool is fantastic and very well kept, our two boys 7 and 10, loved it. We thoraghly enjoyed our stay. This house has everything you could possibly need and we would highly recommend.
Family perfect property.
Fantastic house with everything you could possibly need provided including a lovely welcome pack. The pool is perfect for those warm days and the English television in two comfortable lounges welcome when you want to relax in the evenings. The owners were considerate and helpful and always available on email. The area is beautiful with lots to see and do. It was a privilege to stay in La Réorthe and we and the kids loved it and can’t wait to repeat the experience.
Fantastic holiday rental
Thank you for letting us spend our holiday in your wonderful house it is so well equipped with everything we could have needed. The pool is brilliant. The weather was amazing too. La Reorthe is perfectly situated for trips to Puy du Fou, Ile de Re and beaches. Amazing thanks!
Quiet setting benefiting from spacious quality accommodation.
Lovely spacious house and garden with pool. Everything you could want for a relaxing stay in a typically French setting. Easy access to main roads and inland places of interest as well as seaside attractions all within just over an hours drive. We were 5 adults and 2 young children but had plenty of space and spent most days around the pool and in the shade of the outdoor covered deck area for meals.
So many thanks for your kind comments, Sharon's skills as a homemaker has shone through again. Hope to see you soon for your 4th visit!
A Wonderfull Stay

Many Thanks for your kind review.
The Vendee offers a fantastic coast line most of which is accessible in under 1 hour by car. The beaches are many and varied and we would recommend reading our visitors book on arrival which is full of recommendations.
La Rochelle and Nantes airports are approxinatlely 1 hour away. By car the house is 260 miles from Roscoff (approx 4.5 Hours) and 250 miles from Caen, Most of the roads are dual carriage way or motorway. Due to the location of the property we would advise that a car would be required.
The charming town of Chantonnay is about 5 miles away and offers supermarkets, banks, shops and restaurants.
The Grand Park at Puy Du Fou is less than 1 hour away and is a must visit, has been voted best theme park in the world 2012, ensure that you allow at least 1 full day to visit this attraction, there is nothing in the UK to compare this to and we guarantee you will not be disappointed.
There are no shops in La Reorthe, there is however a boulangerie in the next village (Feole) which is 3 minutes by car or 5 minutes on bike.
For the more serious shopper La Rochelle is 1 hour away by car and has many designer and boutique shops as well as a fantastic choice of restaurants to choose from.
