British style in the Vendée countryside

Samantha is an interior designer and consultant who 9 years ago bought a house in Vendée. I can tell you that she has good taste, not only because her interiors look really welcoming and well thought but because she chose my native department to buy in France 😉

Vendée is still relatively under the radar for boutique hotels or pretty villa rentals (although I found a few) and my favourite islands, Noirmoutier and Ile d’Yeu, are less favoured by the Parisians than Ile de Ré.

Which is why you should really try to spend a holiday there and why not stay at the beautiful Vintage Curator House .

This 19th Century farmhouse has been refreshed and redecorated by Samantha who spent many happy hours trawling the local brocantes, antique markets and vide-Grenier looking for interesting and beautiful vintage pieces.

The result is a calm, cosy, chic countryside look, which previous guests say look even prettier in reality than in the pictures.

It’s perfect for families with all the amenities you can think of and with the wide sandy beaches of the Vendée coast and the theme park of Le Puy du Fou nearby, you can have some great excursions.
