“Fantastic holiday”

We returned to la grange du moulin this year and we are so so glad we did. The set up is perfect for families and really takes the stress out of coming on holiday with young children. Our daughter has loved every second - making new friends, playing in the pool, in the garden and especially on the trampoline. My husband and I have enjoyed relaxing with a glass or two of wine. The gites are ideally located so you can do as much or as little as you choose. Chris, Wendy, Benjamin and Thomas are excellent hosts and we hope to return again next year.

Can only echo the sentiments above. Great place, wonderful hosts...fantastic kiddie-friendly location. The vast majority of people there are return-guests, which says it all, really. On-site there are 2 pools (small, and medium size), trampoline, sandpit, pirate-ship, ride-on toys, books, DVDs, toys, high chairs, cots etc etc. You also get the chance to socialise with adults after your little 'darlings' have crashed out after a busy day
Loads of days out are fully documented in a bulging 'brochure' in each gite (also see the website).
Couple of points to note: No washing machine in Gites (but there is a communal laundry a few yards away); Wi-fi access is available, but not from inside the gites (the walls are true farmhouse-style!); there is no TV coverage (hooray!), but DVD players are available, It takes about 90mins to drive to the coast...so may not be an ideal choice if you are wanting every day on the beach (however there are plenty of other superb destinations much closer than that); You definitely need a car, as you are in fantastic countryside.
3 or 4 airports are within a couple of hours drive lots of local flight options from UK), or you can take your time, take the ferry, and potter down through France. Book early for school holidays, as it is popular, but if you are lucky enough for the kids to be pre-school, then places are easier to come by. We are going back again in 2 weeks, and there are still a couple of spaces available.
Overall top marks for absolutely everything.

“FABULOUS! IF YOU HAVE YOUNG KIDS THIS IS A HOLIDAY FOR YOU TOO!”
Reviewed 22 April 2014 for a stay in June 2012

What a fantastic place to stay with young children! We went with our 2 year old daughter and on previous holidays where we just hired a normal gite, we had to stay in every night watching DVDs. We tried other family resorts, but their kids clubs mean that younger children end up staying up late, and so they’re then miserable for the rest of the holiday. At Grange Du Moulin you can put the kids to bed at their usual time and then socialise with the other parents, having a BBQ or a glass of wine right outside the row of 6 gites, sitting in the evening sunshine. Wendy and Chris are great hosts and give you all sorts of information. In the evenings they hold a BBQ every week, as well as a wine/pate /cheese tasting session and then you can also do a proper wine-tasting course in the garden, while your kids sleep safely. Wendy is a qualified child-minder and baby sat for us twice – what a luxury to go out for a proper meal! She also runs a crèche and a teddy-bears picnic each week. Loads to do around the area and plenty for the younger kids to enjoy. Wendy and Chris provide loads of information, and as their house is only a few hundred yards away, are always on hand if you need to ask anything. We rarely visit the same place twice, but we had such a great time, we have already booked up to go again this year.
