About this place

Best bits

  • The large enclosed garden has swings, sandpit, trampoline and slide as well as lots of toys, so you can just sit back and relax.
  • The games barn has table tennis, table football, air hockey and mini snooker so your children have their own space to hang out and meet new friends.
  • There's both private and communal eating areas with barbecues and a wood burning pizza oven – great for socialising with the other families

Top tips

  • Families with older children will enjoy the pool side cottages, and parents of toddlers and younger children will love the garden cottages.
  • Sociable families will love the well-equipped gites, or if you'd like a little more privacy then go for Pavilion villa which has its own huge private garden.
  • Pack light in the knowledge that all of the baby and toddler equipment you could need is available to borrow.

We have thoroughly enjoyed our stay. The villa offers privacy whilst also offering the opportunity to socialise in the shared pool and garden areas. You and your children can also meet others and play at 'events' organised by Chris and Wendy – informal occasions that we went to include the vine walk, taste du terroir and teddy bears picnic.

About the owners

Wendy & Chris

After many years of holidaying in this area staying in my parents holiday home, we finally moved here in 1996. We haven't looked back. After a number of years renovating stone barns into family gites, learning how to look after our guests and drinking many glasses of wine with them, and then having two children of our own as well as becoming a registered child minder, we now feel very confident in our ability to offer just what young families really need from a holiday here in France. We have over 27 years of experience running at least 11 holiday cottages and have literally hundreds of great reviews and many return year after year.

Owner recommendations

  • St Savinien mini boats are idyllic family afternoon trip.
