Le CYGNE family friendly gite
Le Cygne family friendly gite and La Cassiopee are next to each other. It is a
pool side gite and being next to the heated pool would be ideal for  families
with older children as they can swim and play in the heated pool whilst mum
and dad relax in their private terrace yet still be in easy earshot.
Le Cygne has a large spacious
open plan lounge / dining area with
sofas and seating appropriate to a
family of six. There is a cool tiled
floor. The Kitchen area is raised. It is
fully equipped with dishwasher,
washing machine, fridge / freezer,
gas oven with grill and 4 ring hob,
microwave and all crockery and
A steep open slatted wooden
staircase leads from the kitchen
to the first floor, this is supplied
with stairgates top and bottom.
There are three bedrooms, a
double with king sized bed, fitted
wardrobe and draws; and two
twin rooms each with a
wardrobe. Both twin rooms have
very low windows, one is at floor
level, but these are fitted with
child locks to prevent them being
opened too wide . A few more
steps lead you up to the
spacious modern bathroom
equipped with bath with shower,
basin and low flush toilet. Lots of
hot water and good water

Cross family review of Les Vallaies, Cygne gite, September 2012
children aged 8 and 5yrs
Nicely situated to enjoy the local sites eg Cognac and St Jean d'Angely. Our
boys really enjoyed playing with the other kids who were staying at the same
time - either in the pool or footie/table tennis meaning mum and dad could relax
with a beer or glass of wine ! The pizza oven is a really good idea, we had a very
sociable evening making our own pizzas. All in all a lovely holiday.
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.
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.
