Isnt it true that once you have small preschool children to manage under 6, a holiday is not quite a holiday as you have known in the past?
As parents of young children ourselves, we dreamt of a place where we could eat great food and drink good wine whilst our toddlers were in bed or playing nearby in a safe environment and within sight. Where we could relax during our stay as all relevant equipment from the practical like cots, highchairs, steps and stair-gates to the essential like toys, inflatables, pets and other children were on hand to make our holiday feel like a holiday, for us as well as the children.
That was our dream and with the support and approval of our partners like Tots to Travel, Babyboltholes and Ciaobambino we have created such an environment.
Le Chevrefeuille in the Dordogne, France offers this and more with a focus on family accommodation with a focus on the parents needs, a grown up place to be but ensuring that children are in a safe and free environment.
Le Chevrefeuille in the Dordogne offers families with preschool children an indoor playroom with toys from baby to 10 years old, outside gardens which offer a swimming pool, inflatables, swings, climbing frame, swingball, table football and petanque. We offer bikes for all ages from plastic sitons to bikes without stabilizer. Chickens, guinea pigs, budgies, goldfish and Bella the cat and within walking distance a riding stables which a self guided pony ride is a essential part of the experience.
We provide an evening meal, 3 times a week, children are welcome and toddlers under 3 eat free. The menu is not pasta, pizza and chips but the same menu as the adults reduced to meat and fresh vegetables, cheese, bread and fruit as desert (or ice-cream). The adults are offered a four course regional set menu which is cooked by Ian, who is a trained chef and is passionate about food and the regional fare.
We sit in a small hamlet with 15 other houses, 5 mins drive from a town sitting on the Dordogne Valley and 5 mins drive from the capital of the “prehistoric” Vezere valley. Visiting the many interesting and informative child friendly tourist sites from the caves to the medieval castles of the knights to canoeing and tree climbing are a stone throw away but returning to the calm and tranquility of Le Chevrefeuille has been described as an oasis in the bustle of this beautiful tourist region.
So if you have preschool toddlers and need to know that you are in safe hands, why not book into Le Chevrefeuille family friendly accommodation and relax as soon as you step through our gates.
