Our family holiday cottages or gites as they are known in France, welcome families with babies, toddlers and young children (In fact we are EXCLUSIVELY for families with young children) We offer a peaceful and safe environment in which to enjoy your self catering family holiday with toddlers and young kids near the historic town of St Jean d'Angely in France. With other toddlers and young children for yours to play with in the enclosed garden filled with toys you'll actually have time to relax and even read a book ! Relax in the shade of the apple tree with a chilled glass of wine chatting to other like minded parents whilst your children make new friends. Read over 20 years worth of reviews from families, many of whom return year after year. An easy drive from the ports or fly to one of the many airports in the region such as La Rochelle.
Here at La Grange du Moulin we have a selection of comfortable holiday cottages to choose from. There are four three bedroomed family cottages each sleeping six plus a smaller two bedroomed family cottage and a larger four bedroomed holiday cottage.
The four 3 bedroomed family holiday cottages have a patio to the front and rear with access to each from within the cottage. They each have a barbecue, garden table, chairs and large parasol. They are all opposite the large enclosed garden area, great for families with young children and toddlers - your children can play safely in the garden and you can sit back and relax with a glass of wine on your terrace with your toddlers in full view or certainly within calling distance if they are playing hide and seek !
All the family friendly holiday gites have access to a laundry room on site with washing machines, dryer for the use of all the guests free of charge. There are drying racks, iron and ironing board in each cottage, plus an outdoor rotary dryer. All being well the only drying you'll be doing is of your swimwear !
All the kitchens are equipped to suit the needs of young families with 4 ring gas hob, electric or gas oven grill, microwave, electric kettle, fridge/freezer and dishwasher plus all basic crockery and cutlery providing everything needed for a comfortable self catering family gite holiday.

Our large enclosed garden has a sandpit
and swings including a slide and baby/
toddler swing. These are set on an impact
absorbing wood chip surface (just in case). There is plenty of space to play boules or ball. The garden and sandpit are directly opposite Ruche and Horloge cottages and within view of Papillon gite and Grenier gite. Our Pirate Ship is the star attraction and great for climbing. Our 3m trampoline has a safety net for secure bouncing fun. There are numerous large trees around the garden creating plenty of shade and also lots of super hiding places.
Our swimming pool area is completely
enclosed by a 1m80 high fence and wall and is accessed by one gate which is self closing and has a child proof latch. The main pool is also alarmed for extra security. It is heated to 28c using an efficient heat pump and even younger children will happily swim / play in
it. The older children will be hard to get out of it. We also have our baby /Toddler
splash pool, an above ground HEATED (to
30c) pool, perfect for young children,
toddlers and babies. It is surrounded by a wooden deck with lots of sunbeds. There is a good sized paved terrace surrounding the main pool also with plenty of sunbeds There are also a number of trees around the area which provide shade in different areas at different times of day.
There is so much to see and do in the Charente Maritime region of sw France and our family holiday cottages centrally located so ideal for visiting all the great family sites.

Clarke family review of
La Grange du Moulin
June 2017, Fleurie holiday cottage,
child aged 3 yrs
What a fabulous holiday destination ! We felt like part of the family from the moment we arrived. Wendy, Chris and the boys were so welcoming and friendly. La Grange du Moulin has all the facilities and activities you could possibly want. It's a very safe and fun environment for the kids. We could not fault anything. Thank you !
Sumner family review of La Grange du Moulin, July 2017, Grenier holiday cottage, children aged 4 and 1 year
Our best family holiday yet ! With two young children we have struggled to find a 'formula' that works. Wendy and Chris provide a holiday for the whole family from seafood bbqs to teddy bear picnics !
Speake family review of La Grange du Moulin, June 2017, Ruche holiday cottage, children aged 7, 5 and 1 years
Our stay at La Grange du Moulin has been lovely. Wendy, Chris and the boys have been very friendly and helpful and nothing is too much trouble. Everything is set up to keep the children entertained in a safe, secure environment; from the two pools, games, toys, dvd selection, to the outdoor play area - which in turn means their parents can relax and enjoy the beautiful surroundings. Some great days out to the local park, swimming lake, aquarium, beautiful villages and towns added to a great week, thanks -
we'll see you next year !
Kelly family review of
La Grange du Moulin, July 2017, Fleurie holiday cottage, child aged 3 yrs
We stayed here for one week, we are only sorry we could not stay longer. We have a 3yr old and he loved the freedom and company of all the other boys and girls. The area is very safe with an enclosed garden. The houses are beautifully laid out with everything a family needs. It is obvious they love what
they do. We really couldn't recommend La Grange du Moulin highly enough and will be back ! Go, you'll love it !!
