Quality accommodation in the heart of the Charente countryside


Having brought our two young children here since they were 2 months old, we know what families with children need on holiday. We have a lot of essential kit to help your holiday go smoothly with babies, toddlers and children:

  • cot
  • stair gate
  • high chair for indoor or outdoor use
  • baby walker/stroller
  • play pen
  • Little Tikes climbing cube and slide in garden
  • various toys/books
  • potties, sink steps and toilet seat reducers
  • bath mat
  • baby change table
  • mini table and two chairs
  • easel with blackboard
  • plus…CBeebies on TV, as well as the DVD projector for ‘quiet time’.

The ground floor area is also very large, so there is plenty of room to scatter toys and allow little ones room to play.

For older children, there is the pool in summer, plus the garden which is great for all sorts of games. There is a sandpit, and the tracks between the fields are perfect for bike rides.

To give an idea of some family days out, Meschers Plage des Vernes (45 minutes) is a great, safe beach, with snack bars, toilets at each end and summer Lifeguarding. There is a super, quick restaurant in Pons (15 mins) with two play grounds, mini golf and canoe/pedalo hire on the river (summer only). Also in Pons, there is the excellent Chateau des Enigmes ‘puzzle castle’ with games in English and French. Nearby is the excellent prehistoric centre Paleosite, and if you fancy beauty treatment or fun in an indoor water park, try Les Antilles de Jonzac (20 mins). Slightly further afield there is the aquarium at La Rochelle or Futuroscope in Poitiers.
