|Our Family Friendly Gites at Les Vallaies
near St Jean d'Angely in the
Charente Maritime region of Sw France
|At Les Vallaies we have five self catering family friendly gites to
choose from. Four have been converted from a 200 year old
stone farm building and the fifth is a private modern villa.
Each sleeps six in three or four bedrooms. We have two pool side
gites and two garden side gites and the villa has its own large
private garden area. All can enjoy the great facilities we have on
offer - the large heated pool with gently sloping beach style
entrance - ideal for toddlers and young children; the games room
where older children can hang out and play table tennis or bar
football; and the garden with swings, slide, sandpit and trampoline
with safety net.
Les Vallaies is the sister property of La Grange du Moulin. At this
site we tend to attract families with children slightly older than
those at La Grange but still under around 12 years old. There are
no organised events at Les Vallaies as there are at La Grange du
Moulin, but theres nothing stopping you organising your own !
There is a communal seating area with large wooden table,
communal bbq and also a wood burning pizza oven.
|The Pool side family gites - Cygne gite (left) and Cassiopee gite
(right) are best suited for families with older children where pool access
is a priority !
Cassiopee gite has an enclosed terrace area with a gate direct to the
pool area. This gate has a child safety latch to prevent access to the
pool area of children under 5. This gite has a number of wide steps
within the gite, so is not ideal for crawling babies or toddlers.
Cygne gite has an enclosed terrace area, it is separated from the pool
area by two gates, one of which has a child safety latch.
The pool is alarmed for extra security
The garden is on the other side of the building, access via the lane, so
young children would need to be accompanied.
|The garden side family gites - Vierge gite (above right) and Baleine gite (above left) are ideally suited to families with younger children and
Vierge has a full view of the communal garden area, so you can put up your feet on a sunbed outside your gite and still keep an eye on the
children playing in the garden and an ear out for baby sleeping upstairs. It has a spacious sitting / dining area inside, giving lots of space for
toys and indoor play.
Baleine has a high wall surrounding its terrace area, so would suit families who would enjoy a greater element of privacy, yet remember there
is not a view of the garden so you won't be able to see your children when they are playing. It has a downstairs single bedroom with ensuite
shower and toilet, so is ideal for families bringing a family member who has difficulty with stairs. It is the only gite with two toilets and four
These gites are adjacent to the communal eating area, barbecue and wood burning pizza oven, so may suit the more sociable families
although generally when someone organises a sociable evening they'll invite everyone. If you prefer a little more privacy take a look at the
|Pavillon family Villa - is set slightly apart from the gites above
the shared garden area. It would suit a family who enjoy their own
space but still want other children around for theirs to play with.
Access to the pool is through the play garden and then out past
the parking area to the other side of the stone cottages.
