Baby Friendly Gites France
We have had many families and small guests stay at our luxury villa in south west France and everyone has loved their stay. All the photos show lots of smiles, and luxury family togetherness.
This stunning toddler friendly swimming pool was completed in 2021 and has everything you need to keep your kids and family happy; a safe shallow end for the younger ones, a deeper end for proper swimming, a sturdy diving board and a large semi-circle Roman End steps for getting in and out or for luxuriously relaxing in the sun. The swimming pool is 14 metres long, including the Roman End steps. We have a number of toys for the pool, including flippers / fins, goggles masks, balls, floats and sinks (for fetching under water). We do not offer swimming lessons, so please make sure your loved ones can all swim safely for your holiday.
Toddler Friendly Holiday Swimming Pool
The pool also has a reinforced clear glass enclosure – the pool is completely surrounded – to stop kids getting into the pool when you don’t want them to. It also has a child friendly / toddler friendly gate lock. We asked some of our friends and family before we built it, to discover the most toddler friendly and parent friendly method, and the unanimous decision was a fence enclosure. So we opted for the more beautiful glass enclosure so you still have views over the beautiful gardens.
