Our Family Friendly Gites
La Dominique and La Fleur are 2 family friendly gites in the Charente Maritime area of France. Both are wonderfully converted stone barns, renovated and equipped to a high standard. Both gites were refurbished at the beginning of 2012 and our aim is to continuously upgrade and refresh.
Each gite has everything you would need for a fantastic holiday in the lovely Charente-Maritime region. Both gites have direct access to the heated swimming pool and full use of a large garden which includes a 14ft trampoline, badminton and football nets, swings and boule. There is so much to see and do in the local area. Bordeaux, Saint Emillion, Blaye, Cognac, Saintes, Royan, Rochefort and La Rochelle are all within 1 hour’s drive. Closer you can find superb beaches, swimming lakes, fishing lakes, historic towns and chateaux, the list is endless.
La Dominique has 3 bedrooms and sleeps 6. Downstairs there is a double bedroom with en-suite shower room and upstairs there are 2 twin bedrooms. All bedlinen and bath towels (not pool/beach) are provided during your stay. Another spacious shower room is situated downstairs, this contains a large shower cubicle, wash basin and toilet. The open plan living room/kitchen contains everything you would need to make your stay comfortable.
La Dominique has English TV and we have included a DVD player, plus there is a wide selection of DVDs available to borrow. There is also a selection of books and children’s games/puzzles. The kitchen is fully equipped with cooker, microwave, fridge freezer, dishwasher, coffee maker, kettle, toaster, grill and all the normal crockery and cutlery you are likely to need. A washing machine, is available in our utility room in the courtyard for both gites to share. Outside, La Dominique has its own covered private patio with patio furniture for 6 (which extends to seat more if you happen to be renting both gites and would like everyone to dine together) and a large stone BBQ.
La Fleur has 2 bedrooms sleeping 4/5. Both bedrooms are upstairs, 1 double and 1 twin with room for 2 extra camp beds. All bedlinen and bathroom towels (not pool/beach) are provided during your stay.

Our family friendly gites are perfect for holidaying with friends and family as by renting both together you benefit from having the whole place to yourselves but can retreat back to your own house for a bit of privacy at the end of the day, plus, unlike when you rent a villa we are on site to cater to your every needs.
Welcome baskets are included in your stay offering fresh bread, fresh milk, eggs, cheese, juice, yogurts, jam and wine from the local vineyard. For more photos of our family friendly gites, take a look in the gallery section.
