|Why this location?||Winters are short and tend to be mild with frequent sunshine. Spring comes early and with plenty of flowers - I like my garden! Summers are hot and sunny but not quite as baking hot as the Mediterranean - Poitou-Charentes has the best sunshine record apart from the Côte d'Azure and the prices aren't so high!!|
|Unique benefits of property||We provide all the necessary baby equipment and lots of toys and outdoor play equipment to keep the children happy. Happy kids = happy parents! All linen and towels are included, including pool towels.<br/>The 5-course gourmand dinner, freshly prepared to your requirements, allows you to wine and dine on the terrace, knowing that the children are safely tucked up in bed|
