Make sure you book early! We were lucky enough to book a gite at this gorgeous location almost a year in advance. A few months before the trip we had second thoughts because it looked like the journey from our home in Cambridgeshire was going to be a bit of a nightmare, LOTS of driving plus a ferry ride, but we were so glad we stuck with it because Emerald Coast Gites really is the ideal destination for a family holiday.
Hosts Lesley and Simon have thought of everything a family could want -climbing frame, swings, huge trampoline, Wii, ride-on toys, pools, tree swings, ping pong, chickens to feed, friendly cats. All of this is in a self contained, enclosed area so you can open your front door and let your children run about with no worries about them escaping.
Our two sons, aged 3 and 5, would have happily stayed at the house for the whole week but we managed to drag them away to explore the surrounding area. Lesley had some excellent suggestions about places to go, most of which were 20 mins or less drive away. Our favourites were Chateau Hunaudaye, where our boys could dress up as knights, and Plage de Saint-Michel, a brilliant beach with biggish waves at high tide and rock pools and an island you can walk to at low tide.
All in all a perfect holiday for anyone with children, we'll definitely be going back!
