We are a young family who have holidayed in the Vendee regularly over the years. We instantly fell head over heels in love with the area and, growing more and more attached with each visit, enjoyed our time there so much that we decided to take on our own project, spending 3 years permanently in France renovating the property and the adjacent barn, set to be our very own slice of Vendée holiday escapism! 

Setting our sights on renovating a property for families and couples alike to enjoy and experience the beauty of the Vendee and everything it has to offer as we do, we could not believe our luck when we stumbled across the beautifully enchanting cottage and surroundings that is "Le Lys" (translating into English to "The Lily"), which we purchased in December 2012.

Although already full of charm as it stood, recent renovations have been carried out to the cottage to add even more sparkle, breathing in more life, but taking great care to maintain the typical French style and authenticity it has and keeping that certain "je ne sais quoi". 

It truly is a stunning cottage which is in keeping with the area and welcomes you with open arms, offering you a private, comfortable & relaxing base so all you have left to do is enjoy your holiday!

 It is our complete focus that all our guests have a comfortable stay and take back with them happy memories of their holiday at Le Lys. Whether it is staying at base and lounging whilst enjoying the cottage, stunning views and private gardens; taking local walks or venturing out to explore the ever changing landscapes of the area, attractions, local food and activities, there really is something for everyone and we hope your experience of the Vendee leaves you as captivated as we are!

We have now returned to the UK, recently adding another addition to the family with our 2nd daughter, Amélie, but will continue to be regular visitors in France! :o)
