Allen family review of La Grange du Moulin, August 2015, Papillon holiday cottage, children aged 6 and 4 years
”We have loved our second stay at La Grange du Moulin. The children say its been the ”best holiday ever” !
They have loved making new friends, pottery and fabric painting and the pool, giving Mum and Dad the chance to relax.
We’ve enjoyed a happy balance of socialising and quiet time. This is a great place to stay with young children, especially with all the extra activities offered. Thank you Wendy and Chris !”
At La Grange du Moulin we welcome families with young children. (generally under 8 yrs in peak season and pre schoolers at other times) That means that there will be other like minded families with children, toddlers and babies all wanting an enjoyable relaxing stay where there are other children for theirs to play with and they are not frowned upon when baby cries or their toddler throws a tantrum. If your children are entertained then it usually means you’ll be able to relax that bit more, so we offer lots of activities and the garden and cottages are filled with toys.
Safety is of utmost importance too so the garden is fully enclosed and the pool area is enclosed with a child safety latch on the gate and
alarmed for extra security too. We can also provide pretty much all
the baby and toddler equipment you’ll need, saving you room in the
The individual self catering rental holiday gites range from £400 to £975 for a 3 bedroomed cottage depending on the time of year. At La Grange du Moulin we have six cottages. Four sleep 6 people in three bedrooms each, one sleeps 4 in two bedrooms and one sleeps 8 in four bedrooms; so we have something for everyone.
This small cluster of cottages creates a lovely friendly environment in which to enjoy your self catering family holiday in France. You will
quickly get to know your neighbours and your children will instantly make new friends whilst exploring the safely enclosed play garden. After a
barbecue or al fresco dinner and the children tucked up in bed you can share a glass or three of wine with like minded parents sitting in the warm summer evenings just outside your cottage.
The child friendly, self catering gites are set in a peaceful, rural
location, 6 miles east from St Jean D’Angely in the Charente
Maritime region of sw France. We are an easy 1 hrs drive from
the coast from La Rochelle down to Royan and all the
beaches in between. All major facilities such as supermarkets
and banks can be found a short 10min drive away in St Jean
D’Angely. The town also has a great selection of restaurants.
All beaches, just 1hr away. We fell in love with this region of
SW France not only for its superb beaches, historic towns
and beautiful rural countryside but for the relaxed way of life,
fantastic food and of course, the wine. We share all our
knowledge with our guests over a glass of the local tipple and
many return again and again and become friends.
