LA BALEINE gite at our Family Friendly property with
heated pool near St Jean d'Angely,
Charente Maritime, SW France
La Baleine family gite is next to La Vierge, south facing and adjacent to the garden
area. It is a private gite in that its terrace is surrounded by a high wall, giving some
shade and some privacy. It sleeps 6 in 4 bedrooms.The cottage may also suit
someone who has difficulty with stairs since it has a downstairs single bedroom with
en suite shower room and toilet, ideal when bringing Grandma or Grandpa. The door
is extra wide to allow wheel chair access to the room, however we strongly advise you
speak to us first if you do require wheelchair access to the property as some areas
may not be suitable. Please note that the high wall means that parents of young
children will not be able to see them in the play garden. The courtyard has a gate, so
you can prevent toddlers escaping from your view when you don't want them to.
Downstairs there is an open plan
lounge / dining area with kitchen. The
kitchen is equipped with dishwasher,
washing machine, microwave with grill,
gas oven with grill, 4 ring gas hob,
fridge freezer and all basic crockery
and cutlery.
This family gite is part of the Les
Vallaies family gite complex with
heated pool near St Jean d'Angely in
the Charente Maritime region of
western France. An ideal location for
discovering this beautiful region or for
just relaxing in a child friendly
environment where you can just relax
whilst your
children make new friends.
Upstairs there are three
bedrooms, a king sized double, a
twin and another single. There is
a bathroom with modern bath,
shower facility, toilet and basin
with plenty of constant hot water.
The main bedroom and the twin
room both have a fitted wardrobe
and set of draws. Both single
rooms have a free standing
wardrobe, shelves or draws and
an armchair. The downstairs
single room has an en suite
shower room with toilet and
hand basin.
Outside there is an enclosed
gravelled terrace with garden
table, chairs, parasol and
barbecue. As mentioned, the
terrace is completely enclosed
so may also suit families with
young toddlers, although if they
are allowed to go and play in the
enclosed communal garden
area, you cannot see
them from the terrace
as the wall is too high .
The communal eating, barbecue
and wood burning pizza oven is
in front of Baleine gite

Hartree/Deans family review of Les Vallaies, Baleine gite,
children aged 7 yrs to 78 yrs !
Having stayed in these gites over many years, we have never been
disappointed ! They just get better. Every holiday we find different activities for the
children as they get older - most recent trips have been to paleosite near Saintes
and surfing at the Ile de Oleron, however our old favourites are Valley des Singes
and the zoo at La Palmyre which appeal to all ages. The addition of the pizza oven
in the garden at Les Vallaies was inspired and we have had some lovely evenings
in the garden chatting with new friends. Chris and Wendy are great hosts -
unfailingly cheerful ! We hope to return again and again !
