Child Friendly Holiday Home

We appreciate that happy children make for happy parents and have taken care to ensure that our small guests are well catered for. Not only is our Gite ideal for families with small children there are a wide variety of local attractions to keep your little ones entertained.

We have a cot and high chair should they be required for very young children. The sun deck can also be secured to ensure little ones do not venture too far. 

The split level nature of our Gite means you do not have to constantly go up and down lots of stairs, there are just two steps between the main living area and the bedroom level of the Gite. Whilst temperatures can get quite high during the summer months the Gite with its high vaulted ceiling offers a cool and comfortable living space for guests.

Our above ground pool gives ample opportunity for a splashing time. It can only be accessed by means of a secure walkway accessed from the sun deck so there is no danger of a child accidentally falling in.

Cute Little Berkshire Piglets

Our kitchen garden gives children the opportunity to pick fresh food for their meals and has proven really popular with previous young guests. Eating food that was growing barely an hour before mealtime is both a real treat and an education!

Our chickens lay fresh eggs on a daily basis and have proven to be of endless fascination to our smaller guests. Our pigs have also proven popular in the past and as with the chickens they are equally intrigued by the attention of small people.

La Menantelierre is located in a small hamlet with no passing traffic. It is a tranquil location set amidst surrounding farmland. If you go for walks along the local bridleways you will see plenty of farm animals as well as wildlife and and a wide variety of birds but little if any passing traffic.

Our Family Attractions page lists local places you can visit during the day. Puy du Fou is well worth a visit, the second most popular tourist destination in France after Euro-Disney. It also carried off the top theme park prize in the theme park Oscars, the Thea Awards, in Los Angeles in 2012. The Atlantic coast is just an hour away and the beaches at la Tranche sur Mer or Conches are well worth visiting.
