Boutillon Gites Amenities

Surrounded by fields of sunflowers, just 12 miles from the medieval, maritime city of La Rochelle, the 4 gites of Le Moulin Boutillon have fantastic facilities for tots to teens, so parents can really kick back and relax.

In 2015, the owners upgraded the gites and onsite amenities to 4-star standards, not only with internal makeovers but also adding more fun things for children, including a large, netted trampoline and a Scout-style tepee in shady trees as a base camp for mini adventures and the perfect spot for picnics. At the same time, the games room was extended and more toys were added to provide a cool, indoor play space for all ages, including table football, table tennis, a pool table, Thomas the Tank engine train set and Bluetooth system for steaming favourite tunes.

Besides all this, children and grown-ups can burn off energy on a huge playing field, complete with football nets, badminton nets, a small tennis court and hammocks to flop into, whilst little ones can have their own fun on ride-ons, trikes and in a little play house or in an enclosed sand-pit play area with swings and a slide. To cool down, everyone can splash into the safely enclosed pool, with a shallow end, steps and pool toys, plus the pool is heated to a toasty 29°C which makes the gites ideal for pre-schooler holidays outside high season. There are sun loungers and parasols for relaxing by the pool and all the gites have their own garden for a little more privacy and stoking up a BBQ. The gites themselves are bright, modern and comfortable, with all mod cons, helpful baby/toddler equipment and the trusty back up of satellite TV with UK Freeview Channels, a DVD player and Wi Fi.

Accommodation overview

The 19th century farm buildings of Le Moulin Boutillon have been tastefully converted into 4 gites – the 4-bedroom Maison (sleeps 8+babies); 3-bedroom Ecurie (sleeps 6/7+ babies); 2-bedroom Duplex (sleeps 4/5+babies); and the 1-bedroom Puce (sleeps 2/4+baby). All the bedrooms, except one in the Maison, have space for a cot and 4 travel cots are available, as well as 2 high chairs and other baby/toddler equipment, including baby baths, bed guards, potty, stairgates, plastic crockery and cutlery etc.

The Puce is a cosy single-storey gite for a couple with a baby or toddler, next door to The Ecurie and the games room, and with an enclosed garden overlooking the playing field. The garden has a paved patio with a barbecue and a small lawn with a picnic table, sunbeds, parasol and picnic/play rug. The living area of the gite is open plan, with a comfy sofa-bed, a flatscreen TV with UK Freeview channels, a DVD player and a dining table, plus a modern, fitted kitchen area, with a fridge freezer, electric oven and gas hob, microwave, toaster, coffee maker, kettle and washing machine. The bedroom has a double bed, a single bed and space for a cot.
