Holiday offer ‘March Madness’

at La Grange du Moulin and Les Vallaies
Family holiday cottages

IMG_6526 activities - teddy bear picnic 20kb P1090216 - Copy

Spring is fast approaching and here at La Grange du Moulin and Les Vallaies we are busy getting everywhere ready for the 2016 season.

This winter we have had the swimming pool at La Grange du Moulin completely renovated with a brand new pale blue liner. It looks fantastic and I’m already thinking about those hot sunny summer days where the children are playing in it and the parents relaxing watching on !

What we are most excited about though is our brand new spa at La Grange du Moulin. Heated to 38c I am confident it will help our busy parents relax once the children are tucked up in bed and make their family friendly holiday with us even more enjoyable.
We are even supplying champagne flutes so you can enjoy a bottle whilst watching the stars overhead and chatting with like minded parents while the air jets help you relax even more.
