This gives you so much freedom!

We have an enclosed garden filled with space, plants and room to run about!

We have lots of facilities and activities to keep them entertained; the new Games Room (for parents / adults and children), with pool table, ping pong, air hockey, bar, table football, full-screen cinema and more (the range of facilities are outlined here) and outside you have the pool and safe enclosure area, plus badminton, golf, mountain bikes and more toys.

There is also plenty to do with your children in the local region, as a day-trip out with your children, from your child-friendly villa in France. Just ask at the Jumilhac Tourist Information Office, on the square in Jumilhac (6 minute drive, 4 miles away), to book your gold panning trip, for a great French family holiday experience with your children, to find gold (we did) and explore.  We have a collection of spare welly boots you can borrow, but it can be done in rough old trainers.
