Fuelled by a combination of our growing family’s needs, and feedback from our guests over the last five years, we have decided to make some changes to our offering without losing the sociable family-oriented focus we have so carefully nurtured.
Mums tell us it would be handy to have kitchen and laundry facilities, but they are on holiday too and don’t want to be entirely self-catering. Children tell us they want to be able to play with their new holiday friends and enjoy the garden and animals. Dads tell us they love the food, the wine, the home comforts and the chat. Hopefully, we can satisfy all those needs.
For the season starting Saturday 29 March 2014 we will be offering four cottages. All are on 2 levels, all have their own kitchens, living rooms with TV and UK channels, parental king size double with bathroom, and separate childrens’ bedroom. All our rates INCLUDE breakfast every day, with an additional option to book three evening meals (Saturday night arrival family meal; Tuesday night children’s tea followed by adults 4 course dinner; Friday night children’s pizza party extending into light supper for the adults.)
La Boulangerie (new extension to the existing double suite cottage) sleeps 1 couple and up to 3 children, with 2 ensuite bathrooms.
Les Ecuries (existing cottage) sleeps 1 couple and 2 children (or 2 couples) with 2 ensuite bathrooms.
Le Vigneron (new self contained cottage within the chateau combining the Vigneron and Grenier à Sel suites) sleeps 1 couple and 2 children with 1 bathroom ensuite to parental bedroom.
La Tour (existing cottage) sleeps 1 couple plus baby with 1 bathroom.
During mid-season (April, May, September, October) there will be 3 and 4 night break options with arrival on Saturday or Tuesday. During high season (June, July, August) cottages are weekly rental only, Saturday to Saturday.
All our accommodation is newly renovated in ‘boutique hotel’ style, featuring working log-burning fireplaces, comfy sofas, kettles and Nespresso machines. Our double beds are all king sized with 180 x 200 cm memory foam mattresses, cotton bedlinen and duvets. Guests will find luxurious bath and shower rooms with l’Occitane toiletries, large fluffy towels, bathrobes and hairdryers. The dining area is equipped with free wi-fi for our guests’ use.
FACILITIES ON SITE
Our focus remains on providing a great holiday environment for families, with lots of facilities for little ones including a play area in the garden with sandpit, swings, slide and climbing wall; a host of baby and toddler equipment available to borrow free of charge. A new indoor play area is also planned for 2014, new home to our afternoon ‘supervised play’ sessions for children aged 2+ twice per week.
‘Date night’ : Evening babysitting is available to book
Our fully gated, heated, 10m X 5m outdoor pool runs between April and October, weather permitting (pool towels and sunloungers are provided). The grounds also provide a pleasant terrace, fruit and vegetables in season, and a selection of safely enclosed animals (including hens, sheep, goat and donkey) that children can feed under supervision.
