We have been living in France offering affordable self catering family friendly cottages and gites for rental since 1996. We have therefore gained a wealth of experience in what makes the perfect self catering, child friendly and family friendly gite holiday. We also have two children of our own so fully understand the needs of the family when booking an affordable holiday rental property in France . We fell in love with this region of SW France not only for its superb beaches , historic towns and beautiful rural countryside but for the relaxed way of life, fantastic food and of course, the wine . We share all our knowledge with our guests over a glass of the local tipple and many return again and again and become friends.  
' The most perfect self catering child friendly gite rental holiday in  France - and affordable too !'

Blundell family review July 2013 children aged 4 and 2 yrs
We have had a wonderful 2 wks at La Grange du Moulin, so much so we have booked for next year !   Chris and Wendy Blakeman are welcoming, professional and efficient but above all, friendly . Our two girls have had the freedom to play and explore in complete safety and have thrived making new friends
and enjoying some independance. We have had time to relax and make the most of the family time as well as 'grown up time' We as parents have made some lovely friends and can't wait to come back next year. This is definitely the place for people who enjoy the company of other families and the opportunity to be part of a group. Thank you Wendy and Chris, sorry to say we'll
be keeping La Grange du Moulin a secret as we will want to make sure availability is plentiful for us in the future !
