about our child friendly gites near
St Jean d'Angely
We've been back three times - I think that says it all !! If you are looking for a holiday
where you can relax wih your young family you can't get much better - Does what it
says on the tin ''Child Friendly'' Fantasic not just for children but for parents of young
Worsfold family (Children aged 3yrs)
Hannah loved everything about the garden, especially the pool ! Also we loved the pool too as we could sit
there for 2hrs and not get cold ! Second year here so of course we love the area and the cottages. Especiall
love the little tings like the bath toys, books and the use of the washing machine - we didn't need to pack half
as much this year. Definately be back next year. Thanks for everything.
Cordner family (Children aged 2yrs)
No stress, relaxed environment, safe environment for kids to play. Just like your back garden but with a
swimming pool and a pirate ship. Endless places to go and everything we could possibly have wanted.
Matthews family (Children aged 18 mths)
We've just come home from the best holiday we've had in a long time, staying two wks in Fleurie . The
accomodation was excellent with everything that we needed and Wendy and Chris were always available for
advice or tips about the local area. The outside play area is fantastic and extremely well maintained, as is the
pool area. There isa wonderfully relaxed and 'neighbourly' atmosphere and the activities arranged (such as the
vine walk, wine tasting, bbq and teddy bears picnic) were all brilliant. There are many places to visit within a
30mins drive, plenty to fill a 2wk holiday. Only wish that we were still there !
Carter family (children 4yrs and 1yr)
We really enjoyed our weeks stay in Grenier. Our 18mth old girl was delighted that she had the wonderful
garden to play in. Everything was provided which made life fantastic. We will definately be back next year !
Cullinane Family (Children aged 18mths)
Thank you for a thoroughly relaxing holiday with 3 children in tow Wendy and Chris are fantastic hosts - all
the extras they lay on like the bbq night and teddy bears picnic really make the holiday special. We especially
appreciate all the things you provided that made having the baby here easy - steriliser, playmat, bouncy chair
etc. A huge thank you !
Gwynne Family (Children aged 4 yrs, 2yrs and 3 mths)
This was our second year in Papillon. We returned for the excellent facilities (that are super child friendly) the
range of attractions to visit locally (the zoo a particular favourite) and the ever welcoming service from Chris
and Wendy. Whilst it is obviously a business it is run more like visiting friends with no request too big or
unusual ! Dare we also tempt fate by saying how good the weather continues to be each year !
Huddleston Family (Children aged 3 and 2 yrs)
We were here for 2 wks with our girls. My sisters family stayed in Ruche and we were in Peche. La Grange
du Moulin is absolutely ideal for a young family. Our eldest had the time of her life being alowed the freedom
of playing safely with the other children in the fantastic play garden. The pools were wonderful, especially the
baby pool for our baby ! Lovely to be able to relax and sociable with other adults whilst bbq-ing, knowing that
the kids are happy and safe. The cottages were superbly equipped with everything we could wish for to make
our stay comforatble and easy. Beautiful surrounding scenery and great location for exploring beautiful
coastline and neighbouring towns. We will definately return. Very very sad to be leaving !
Brady and Jones families (Children aged 4yrs, 3 yrs, 2 yrs and 13mths)
This is the holiday holy grail for parents - you really can enjoy a glass of wine while the
children play happily. The best and most relaxed family holiday we've had yet. The boys
had the time of their lives and will be very sad to leave. The garden and pool are perfect
for young children and a lovely safe environment to enjoy with all the new playmates
Williamson family (children aged 4yrs and 1yr)
We loved everything about this holiday ! Two weeks gave us plenty of time to relax at
the gite and there was so much on site that we were all more than happy to spend the
day here. We really enjoyed bbq night - itwas nice to have a 'night out' and meet new
people and Chris an Wendy make you feel very welcome. We had lots of days out but
the kids were happiest pottering around at the gite with new friends, swimming and
McLaren family (children aged 5yrs and 2yrs)
This is the first holiday we have been on with other children around and we all loved it.
Our son played with all the other children and the variety of toys in the garde. The social
aspect for both children and parents makes the holiday very relaxed and friendly. The
time and effort put in by Chris and Wendy makes everyone feel part of the family and
very welcome. There is plenty to do around an hours radius of the gites. We have only
touched on all the various suggested places to o, so we look forward to coming back ext
year to see some more. Chris and Wendy were extremely attentive and resonsive to all
our email questions and requests prior to the holiday.
Swanton family (child aged 2.5yrs)
The facilities were first class - everything you need for an 18mth child were really on your doorstep - the
box of toys and books from Benjamin and Thomas to the teddy bears picnic and the little pool went down a
