| We have been running our
gite for two seasons now and we've had such positive
comments from guests that we have decided to draw a
bit more attention to the benefits that having owners
on site can bring.
wants a clean and comfortable place to stay which
represents good value for money. We know we provide
that and for some guests that's all they need from
us. For others we've discovered we can help in all
kinds of ways. We listen to what you want and respond
accordingly. For us, that's part of the service.
The next step is to offer supported holidays where
you make your booking knowing that we are available
if you need us. With our backgrounds and experience
here we are ideally placed to help people get the
most from their break in this very special part of
FOR CHILDREN WITH SPECIAL NEEDS AND THEIR FAMILIES.
Before we swapped life in London for life in rural
France I was a Hospital Play Specialist. I realise
the importance of a holiday for the whole family where
there are special needs, illness, recovery from illness,
times in life when people just need an extra hand.
We offer activities and outings for children and their
families. We can support parents, siblings and the
children themselves to ensure that everyone gets what
they need from their holiday. We can plan things in
advance or just go with the flow.
children are welcome to join with our own in whatever
activity we are doing or we can run sessions exclusively
for you. Activities might include messy play, musical
fun, sports, outdoor games, painting, cooking, small
worlds, computer games or story making. The list is
only limited by our imagination! Evening activities
could include BBQ's, campfires or movie nights.
FIRST HOLIDAYS ABROAD OR WITH BABY. This part
of France has so much to offer and while some people
find it easy to make the most of it, others feel more
comfortable knowing we are on hand if needed .We are
happy to make reservations for you, drive for you,
whatever you find stressful we can see if we can take
that stress away. Travelling with a baby for the first
time can be nerve wracking but when you come here
you'll know we are on hand with plenty of equipment,
recommendations of baby friendly places to go and
time if you want it..
FOR GROUPS. The floor space in the cottage
is huge and we are happy to rearrange the beds to
best suit your group. The games room area creates
another living room so people have plenty of space.
We can help to arrange BATTLEFIELD TOURS, LANGUAGE
COURSES and RETREATS.
for the costs, attention to detail and activities
with our own children come as standard when you book
Kestrel Cottage. We will need to make charges for
some extra activities and organisation. For families,
an organised 2 hour on site activity session would
cost 30 euros, an activity session with our own children
(with you on site) would be just the cost of materials
if anything. Group activity requirements will need
to be discussed! We can accompany outings as an additional
adult at a cost of £10 per hour (+ expenses) Administration
and transport costs will depend on the requirements
of each family or group. If you think your family
or group would like to take advantage of a supported
holiday please do get in touch to talk about what
we can do to help you.
