Situated in the heart of the Vendée region, Pays de la Loire, our manoir is surrounded by over an acre of private gardens and backs onto a small stream and parkland, making it just about a perfect setting. An ambitious, luxury restoration began in 2011 after the property was purchased by Shari Swan and Warren Coulson, two Canadian entrepreneurs living in Amsterdam the past 15 years.
With over 20 years of experience in marketing, branding and product design, Swan and Coulson are bringing contemporary design, events and an international clientele to the Vendée which is known as the ‘Coast of Light’ due to it’s sunny and warm climate. We offer local tours and excursions as well as a private Gite/Apartment (currently under renovation) for those looking for something more private and/or a longer stay.
In the main part of the house we offer three luxurious en-suite rooms and one family suite which features two rooms and an en-suite, all designed as spacious, relaxing and comfortable environments. The attached Gite apartment contains the kitchen, as well as a living room, bedroom, loft bedroom and shared bathroom.
Every suite is furnished with custom made furniture and the architectural features of the building have been preserved as much as possible through high ceilings, stone walls and solid wooden floors. Fine pressed cotton linens, microfiber duvets and plush down and microfiber pillows are what we are all about.
The suites all have a flat screen TV with satellite, access to the mini bar, and a wireless internet connection. The bathrooms, paved with Italian tiles, feature large rain showers and bathtubs, Compagnie de Provence skin care products, heated towel racks, bathrobes, and just about everything you might need for unwinding after a long day.
