There are very large work surfaces and huge storage and you will find all the pots, pans, and utensils etc., needed to cater for 10 people. The kitchen is fully tiled for ease of cleaning.
SWIMMING POOLS:
The Indoor heated pool is an 8 x 4m with a tiled finish, it is 1.5m deep.
There are tables and chairs around the pool and the large patio doors open out onto a large terrace with tables and chairs and there are great views across the surrounding country side.
The Pool has a heat cover which retains the heat when not in use.
The pool is protected by a by patio doors which has a high catch which must be fastened when the last responsible adult leaves.
Outdoor Pool
The Outdoor swimming pool is 10 x 6m with roman steps, it varies in height from 2.4m at the deep end to .9m at the shallow end. It is constructed in concrete with a fibre glass liner.
The pool is not heated other than by the sun, but is generally at a suitable temperature from May till October
The pool has a large terrace with tables and chairs and is protected by a hedge and security fence with self-closing gates.
The sterilization of the pool is by saline electrolysis. To put it simply the pool has salt in it and the electrolysis machine breaks the salt down into its base components, chlorine and sodium. This is exactly how the sea is kept clean, it is very natural and the chlorine that is produced is of a different structure making it almost undetectable to smell and kind on the eyes. There is an additional bonus in that the salt in the pool gives more bouyancy that fresh water and that has allowed many of our younger visitor to learn to swim more quickly.
GARDENS:
We are proud of our gardens at La Grange not only because of the way they are landscaped and the vast amount of colour in the flower beds, but because of the amount of enjoyment that they bring to our visitors.
The gardens were designed so that where ever you are on the site there is always something interesting to view, and with the gardens blending into the natural landscape it has the feel of space and being together with nature.
The gardens are basically in two parts, the landscaped garden and the sports field though within the former there is a boules court.
LEISURE ACTIVITIES:
One of the reasons that our Gites stand out from most others in the south of the Vendee is the amount of our on-site Activities
Whatever the weather there is something to keep you amused or entertained regardless of your age.
Children especially are catered for under the old saying if the children are content so are the parents.
