La Cassiopee gite at Les Vallaies
La Cassiopee family friendly gite is next to Le Cygne
It is a pool side gite and has a small secure private gravelled terrace area with
table, chairs, large parasol and charcoal barbecue. It has its own gated
entrance (with child proof latch) to the pool area and so would be best for
families with older children  who can play and swim in the pool while mum and
dad relax outside their cottage or for families with young babies who arn't on
the move . With its private and securely enclosed gravelled terrace, although
not the best cottage to choose it is also secure for
families with young children too.
There is 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 windows in
Cassiopee and Cygne do not
have shutters, only curtains, so
parents of young children may
wish to bring blackout material
with them to darken the rooms.
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.

Ferguson family review of Les vallaies, Cygne and Cassiopee gites,  
children aged 9, 6 and 3 yrs
Thank you Wendy, Chris and family, We've had a lovely, fun and relaxing
holiday and don't want to go home - what more can we say ! Our gite was
great for us and our kids. We particularly enjoyed the vine walk, pizza
evenings and t-shirt painting - we'll have to come back to fit in all the other
stuff !
This family gite is part of the
Les Vallaies family gite
complex with heated pool near
St Jean d'Angely in the
Charente Maritime region of
western France. An ideal
location for discovering this
beautiful region or for just
relaxing in a child friendly
environment where you can
just relax whilst your children
make new friends. Through the
double wooden patio doors
you enter the cottage. A cool,
tiled entrance area then leads
up to the raised open plan
wooden floored lounge /dining
area. Please note there are
two steps which are the full
length of the entrance area so
may not be ideal for parents of
crawling or just walking
children as these steps cannot
be blocked off.
