Comments 2007 on our Family Friendly Gites
near St Jean d'Angely
We have stayed in many gites over the past 9 years (some English owned, some French)
and in our opinion, this is
by far the best - from cleanliness to the quality of information
provided and including attention to detail and your
helpfulness.You have obviously found
a niche in the market with regard to the '
child friendly' approach and you fulfill it very
well with the
available facilities (high chair, changing mats, toys etc) All exceeding our
expectations. Thank you. The
Teddy Bears Picnic and communal bbq are a lovely idea
and an
opportunity to mix with other guests yet there is no pressure to do so if you don't
want to. All in all, a great place to stay which I find
difficult to fault. If I achieve my
dream of running a gite business, I'll be stealing a few ideas !!
RICKWOOD FAMILY (with Daniel aged 15mths) JUNE 2007 FLEURIE
We've had a fabulous time again. Sometimes it can be worrying going back to the same
place again in case you remember it better than it actually is, but coming back for the
second year in a row, everything is even
better than we remembered. Christopher has
loved playing in the garden and sandpit and spending time with Benjamin and Thomas
and we've loved the chance to have a relaxing holiday. Weather wasn't what we'd hoped
for (although we won't hold that against you !) but we've found
plenty to do - some old
favourites like the boats on Sundays and some new discoveries too.
CHURCHER FAMILY (Christopher aged 3.5) JUNE 2007 HORLOGE
We've had a great stay and the hospitality is great. Wendy is kind and helped us out by arranging a Dr when
our son fell ill. The set up here is great for families with little ones and is
very child friendly. The children are
more than
happy just to play outside. Thanks for a great (but sleepless ill child) week. We've really enjoyed
ourselves and will certainly bear this place in mind for future holiday and will certainly
recommend it to our
friends and
families with children.
BROOKS FAMILY (Leon aged 18 mths) JUNE 2007 RUCHE
We wanted to say how much we enjoyed staying with you last week. It has been one of our most relaxing
in a long time and the effort you made to make us feel at home and the child friendliness of the
cottage really contributed. We will be telling all our friends. NARENDRAN FAMILY (Arjun 4yrs, Alisha 3yrs)
We found the accomodation to be spacious and homely, the ambience calm and peaceful. Solomon
thoroughly enjoyed playing in the garden which was a
haven for toddlers. He particularly liked having other
children of a similar age to play with. For parents it was great to be able to watch over them in the
they were safe
. Chris and Wendy go that extra mile to ensure everything is catered for and we fely a peace of
mind having them just around the corner, yet without any intrusion on our privacy. We were unlucky with the
weather and had more than our fair share of rain in the second week. Had it been a little drier we would of been
able to explore more of this
beautiful part of France. I guess we'll just have to come back and visit again soon
PAT, PAULA ans SOLOMON (aged 2yrs) RUCHE
We feel like we have found a perfect little holiday spot at La Grange du Moulin. The
beautiful grounds are a lovely base, the village setting - in the middle of nowhere, gives
an instant
feeling of relaxation and the hospitality of the hosts was second to none. We
feel we've been made a part of the local community for a couple of weeks ! Our little
ones are only little but there was still
plenty to amuse them: playing in the garden,
wandering down the lane to look at the tractors or splashing in the pool. In the evenings
we enjoyed sitting in the sunshine at the back before moving around to the front to
socialise and perhaps lay a
game of boules. Don't miss the communal bbq its a very
special occasion.
BIDDULPH and WESTERBY families (Daniel 14mths, William 20 mths) PECHE
The cottages are great for a family holiday. The kids have made lots of friends. The garden layout meant the
children can play and we can watch from the cottage without worrying -
a really safe environment. With
children of 5 & 2yrs old it must be a first to feel rested after a 2 wk holiday!
This holiday was brilliant, the girls loved it as they could run about without us constantly watching over
them, they made loads of friends and
we could relax knowing they were safe. The 2 pools and playground
were fantastic although due to mixed weather we couldn't enjoy them as much as we would of liked, despite
the weather we will definately be back. We have stayed in similar self catering holiday homes in various
places, but
none as good as this. The gite was lovely, really spacious & light & had everything you need.
Chris & Wendy are brilliant and organise loads of things to do including a weekly communal bbq which is
really great for meeting the other families staying here. The area is lovely and there are
plenty of things to do.
Chris' wine tasting evening was very interesting and a must for any wine lover.
PURVIS FAMILY August 2007 FLEURIE, children 5 & 4 yrs
Well we have been here 3 times in 4 yrs which I think speaks volumes. Chris, Wendy, Benjamin and Thomas
very welcoming to everyone here and do their utmost to make sure everyone is happy and contented.
Wine tastings are a must for everyone as
Chris really knows his stuff. So thanks again for another very
special holiday - they get better each time. SMALLEY FAMILY July 2007 PAPILLON, children 11 & 9 yrs
The cottage was extremely clean and well equipped. Outside seating areas meant we ate outside for the
majority of the time.
Pool area clean and safe. Play area ideal for all ages. Chris and Wendy extremely
helpful and always around if needed. This has been our
most relaxed holiday. The area is lovely, but the
facilities at the cottage and the
friendly atmosphere has meant that we havn't needed to go out each day to
have a good time. JACKSON FAMILY August 2007 HORLOGE child age 9yrs
