|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. For a bit about Chris and

|Our 'pool man' is Chris and he takes great pride
in the daily maintenance of both pools at
La Grange du Moulin as well as our other
properties. The main heated swimming pool is
50 m2, and very child friendly being 1m deep
at the shallow end and gently dropping to 2m at
the deep end. It is floodlit and may be used at
any time. It is surrounded by a terrace with
sunbeds and is completely enclosed and alarmed
for safety. It is also heated to 28c.
The Heated toddler pool is also within this
safely enclosed area. It is heated to 30 c by a
reliable electrical heat pump (extremely energy
efficient and maintains a constant temp) and is
also maintained daily so is always crystal clear.
The pools are surrounded by a terrace and grass
and there are lots of sunbeds and both sunshine
and shade at different times of day. The toddler
pool is shaded at all times by a 'sail'

Pembroke family review of La Grange du Moulin,
We have had a wonderful 2 weeks staying at La
Grange du Moulin, thank you Wendy and Chris. It has
been great to stay somewhere that totally understands
the needs of a toddler and baby. It has saved us
bringing a mountain of baby equipment ! The enclosed
garden has been brilliant for our toddler who has loved
exploring and making new friends and we loved the
barbecues and teddy bear picnic. Wendy and Chris'
local knowledge has been invaluable for finding toddler
friendly things to do and exploring the local area. Chris
has also taught us a thing or two about the local tipples
and their histories. Thank you, we hope to return again.
