Essentially any holiday property in France with a swimming pool will be a win win situation if you are travelling to France with kids in tow. Many of the owners of the child friendly cottages and gites have families of their own, so they have excellent knowledge of the facilities the children require and also have invaluable knowledge of the local area. Usually, the best family days out and child friendly restaurants have all been thoroughly tried and tested so that your brood get to experience only the very best of French life. The family friendly cottages and gites come equipped with child friendly elements, such as basic essentials like cots and highchairs, to wendy houses in the garden, swings, slides, toys, books and games. Many of the cottage complexes have outdoor swimming pools and games rooms. Our French holiday properties shown are incredibly family-friendly and the helpful owners provide a useful selection of baby and toddler equipment to ease with packing.
