1 of 4 traditional Gites close to safe sandy beaches
Whilst this is the smallest of the 4 Gites at La Julerie, with a floor space covering in excess of 84 Sq metres, it is still spacious. This is a very cosy Gite with plenty of character and comfort. This Gite has French doors to the rear which open onto its patio where the wooden garden furniture will be situated in the summer months along with a Weber or drum barbeque; in the Spring and autumn we normally bring the furniture onto the lawn in front of the Gites to benefit from more sun.
|Bedrooms:||There are 2 bedrooms, one is a large double with a French sleigh bed and in its rear alcove we keep a cot erected, but his can be wheeled into the other twin bedded room if needed, but at the expense of removing 1 single bed. When the property was converted in 2002, our son exposed all of the beams in the roof in the double bedroom, whilst he put a ceiling in the twin bedded room and left all of the timber above exposed to the view from the landing.|
|Bathrooms:||Upstairs there is a bathroom with bath, with shower attachments to assist with washing the children's hair, basin and toilet, whilst downstairs there is a shower room which also has a basin and toilet|
|Kitchen:||All of our Gites have an open plan ground floor living area with corner kitchens; when doing the conversion work our son told us he was doing this so that “mums wouldn’t get left in the kitchen working whilst the rest of the family were enjoying themselves!” There is a full range of electrical equipment including 4 burner hob, oven, microwave, kettle, coffee maker, toaster, mixer etc. This Gite does not have a dishwasher|
|Living Rooms:||there are two comfortable armchairs and a very comfortable sofa and a window seat.
We have virtually all of the equipment parents need when taking their infants on holiday which means you don’t need bring items from home; besides cots, high chairs and stair barriers we also have a baby changing table, baby bath, bottle sterilising unit, swing chair and baby chair and a listening device etc.; where needed all kitchen cupboards and upstairs windows have locks which are reversible and only need be engaged when infants are in the property. We have also fitted barriers to the patios.
|Other Rooms:||Games Room adjoining the indoor swimming pool. This large room has a table tennis table, a seating area, 2 changing rooms with showers and a toilet; there are many toys for younger children including several sit on ones and books for all to read (English and French). If guests book all 4 Gites they are welcome to use this room as a function room, several guests have held their wedding or anniversary receptions in it as there is enough room for up to 40 guests to sit and dine together. They have invariably called upon outside caterers to provide the food (details are available).
The swimming pool is only accessed through this games room for security reasons. The pool is normally heated from Easter until the end of October, it has glass covers which are opened during fine weather. The pool is over 9 mtrs long and 4 mtrs wide with a level bottom at a depth of 1.65 metres, deep enough for a proper swim, but parents can still stand and look after their infants who may also be in the pool. The other 3 sides of the pool are enclosed in a walled patio which makes an ideal suntrap where you can lie on a sun lounger and do as little as you like! For safety reasons we do provide some plastic beakers for guest to use when having drinks around the pool as we do not want to risk any glasses getting broken in this area.
|Linen/Cleaning/Towels etc:||Our prices are fully inclusive. All bed linen, bathroom towels, swimming pool towels, kitchen towels, serviettes etc are provided and changed on a weekly basis. We do not charge any exit cleaning fee, but we do ask guests to leave their Gites clean and tidy and we do state that we can withhold part of the security deposit if the Gites are not left in a clean and tidy state.
|Outside:||La Julerie is situated in about 1/2 hectare of land, the Gites have lawned area in the front and patios to the rear with wooden furniture and Weber or drum barbeques; beyond these patios there is another area of private lawn, then the garden opens up to an area shared by all of our guests. There is a children's play station with slide, swings, fireman's pole and an elevated playhouse with telescope etc, elsewhere there is sand pit and another play house for the younger children.|
