About Ruth Rogers
Hello, We are Andrew and Ruth, We moved to France from Guernsey in April 2002 with our two children Denham and Fern, then aged 2 and 9 months respectively. We have since been running the gites and enjoying the lovely micro climate that the Vendee has to offer.
Ruth Rogers purchased this Cottage in 2002
Why Ruth Rogers chose La Réorthe
We decided to buy a property in St Juire Champgillon because we liked the rural location and the fact that we had plenty of garden, which would be ideal for the gites as it enables children lots of space to play in. The property is easily accessible from the main roads, but far enough away to offer tranquility with an abundance of tracks and lanes suitable for walking and cycling. We also have easy access to the beaches and local attractions like Puy du Fou (well worth the visit), but at the end of the day you can leave the hustle and bustle and just come back and chill out with a beer or a glass of wine. 2011 the Tour de France cyclists raced straight past our front door, this was another life experience for us something we had never seen before, we made a day of it with friends.
What makes this Cottage unique
The benefits of staying with us here at La Guillemandiere are that we have spacious gites, well equipped with ample parking. For the children (or adults alike!) we have a large enclosed swimming pool with childrens pool, large gardens with the childrens play area, boule court and playhouse, and a large trampoline with safety net surround. You can enjoy the abundance of fruit and nut trees in the garden, help youselves. The adjacent fields are filled with either wheat, maize or sunflowers and make for good photographs. At dusk the odd deer can be seen as well as magnificent sunsets.

Home from home
This is our second stay in La Sapin, which is like a home from home. The lounge/kitchen is spacious and well equipped. The bedrooms are comfortable and the grounds and pool are open and enjoyable. Ruth and Andrew are always on hand and very willing to help and advise upon places to go and stay. We particularly like the common area under the willow tree where all the guests and Ruth and Andrew gather for ann evening soiree. The area is very peaceful and rural, and has extensive nearby supermarkets. We reccomend this property for those with children who want to get away from the hurly burly of life.
