Joseph family review of Les Vallaies holiday cottages, July 2015, children aged 3 and 1 yr, Cassiopee gite :

''Lovely clean, welcoming accommodation, well organised events which are clearly designed for young children and were enjoyed by the whole family, a great venue to socialise with other families, great information provided on what,

where, how to do things.''

Cassiopee cottage has a spacious open plan lounge / dining area. Brightly

decorated and fully furnished to suit the needs of a family of up to six people. The thick stone walls are exposed and help keep the cottage cool during the hot

summer months. The good sized kitchen is equipped with washing machine, dishwasher, microwave, fridge freezer, gas oven/grill/4 ring hob, sink and all

the crockery and cutlery required for an enjoyable and comfortable stay. A steep open tread wooden staircase leads up to the first floor. It is supplied with a fitted stairgate at the top and a stair barrier at the bottom.

The large master bedroom has king sized bed, cot and a fitted wardrobe with shelves and hanging space. There is a large window which overlooks the

heated pool and spa area.

The two twin rooms each have clothes hanging space. The smaller twin room has a low window but this is fitted with a window lock. The bathroom has a modern full

sized bath with shower attatchment, low flush toilet and sink. There is plenty of constant hot water and good pressure.

The gas cooker is supplied by a gas bottle which we will change for you at any time if needed. Cooking gas, electricity and water is included in the cost of

the rental.

McGregor family review of Les Vallaies holiday cottages, August 2015, children aged 5 and 2 yrs, Cassiopee gite

''A wonderful find ! Perfect balance of peace and quiet for grown ups with plenty for children to do. All the childrens/toddler equipment provided took the

stress out of packing too. Thanks for a wonderful holiday see you in 2016 !''

About Wendy Blakeman

After many years of holidaying in this area, staying in my parents holiday home, we finally moved here in 1996. We havn't looked back since.

Since having our own children, the needs of young families on holiday were made even more evident to us. We have always been a family location but we now specifically cater to young families where we not only provide pleasant self catering accommodation but we can provide all the things required by a family with young children, from cots to steam sterilisers; saving you room in the car and making your holiday run more smoothly.

Entertaining children is a constant job; by providing toys, slides, swings and of course our trampoline, and nearby activities pottery and T-shirt painting, scuba diving and other family activities (held at La Grange du Moulin 1km away) plus professional wine tastings, family vine walks an all in a safe environment where there are other English speaking children to play with too - your children are happy all day and I pretty much guarantee you'll have the time to finish at least one book whilst staying with us !

Wendy has become a registered child minder here in France, so now Wendy can look after you children during the day to give you a break and some time to

relax even more . You can rest assured in the knowledge that you also have a capable babysitter on hand so you can enjoy a night out too.

Over the years we have developed the wine theme to our guests stay. This sets us apart from everyone else. Chris worked all his

adult life in the wine industry, selling, buying and teaching wine, its

also a passionate hobby. Our wine tastings and family vine walks

add to the enjoyment of the parents holiday and are extremely

popular, but its not compulsory of course !

Wendy Blakeman purchased this cottage in 2001

Guestbook comments from the owner

We had a lovely time staying in Cygne gite with our children. The gite was laid out with children in mind with all the items required by young children, including

a selection of toys and bath toys. Our children also loved going out to play in the meadow with the little wendy house and the trampoline and also had lots of

fun in the lovely warm swimming pool. Wendy and Chris were just sooo friendly and helpful, even babysitting and booking a great local restaurant for us so we

could have some well deserved child free time !
