Someone once said “I have a dream” and this applied to us! We both wanted to have a business where we could combine work and leisure in a nice area of Europe.
The dream was about to become a reality and we believed that a gite or b&b complex in France was the answer!.
We had both visited France over the years and when we met a few years ago we found that we shared this same dream so what could we do to realise it?.
As Nelly is from Belgium and Tony from England it made sense to select an area where we could easily keep in contact with our families so we drew a circle around an area of France.
The circle was determined by this factor and other points such as - proximity to airports and ferry ports, near the coast, climate, attractions, pretty countryside, history etc.
It seemed that the perfect area for us was The Vendee as it satisfied all the above criteria so the next thing we knew we were on the plane to Nantes!.
