What we can offer Families with children
under 5 years at our family friendly gites in
the Charente Maritime
When searching for a holiday it can
be an absolute minefield out there on
the internet. Theres just so much
available, but how do you really
know that something is going to be
what it says on the label ? Well to be
honest, you don't ! Particularly when
booking direct with no agent to fall
back on. We have been featured and
recommended by Tots to France ,
recommended family holidays, and
are a Mumsnet best. When booking
direct, at La Grange du Moulin we
hope we can reassure you, before
you book that we are the right choice
for you. Take a look at all our
reviews to get an idea of why our
gusts love us.
In June and September, outside the
school holidays we tend to attract
families with under 5's, and so we try
to organise a few things to cater
more towards them at these times.
regular feature during these months;
we simply spend a few hours playing
in the garden and we have a little
picnic too. Its very informal and you
don't have to join in if you have
something else planned but our
children enjoy it and I'm sure yours
will too ! It's usually followed by the
pottery painting, popular with all ages
and we also have T-shirt painting
each week too.

Wendy is a registered childminder here in France so has undergone training in looking after little ones as well as her own experience bringing
up her two boys. She also teaches a 'English workshop' at the local primary school.

Since having our own children we have tried to make our own cottages as child friendly and safe as is reasonably possible, however they were never designed with children
specifically in mind and as with any property including your own home there are some obvious hazards. We feel it is important for parents of young children to be aware of these
before they decide to book, please see our
PARENT POINTS page for more details. If you have any concerns about anything please ask - we are extremely honest and would
much prefer you did not book than be unsure about something.
