The 'home cinema' sitting room.....
The open plan social sitting room is partially covered with rugs for maximum comfort and offers large comfortable sofas. It has a 12ft high beamed ceiling with two large 'A frames' beams & original oak flooring. You will be delighted with the home cinema TV with UK channels, a Wii console, Hi-fi CD player, internet access & an iPod docking station.

In the sitting room indulge in your very own home cinema TV by watching your favourite shows on the huge motorised screen - excellent for watching your favouite UK shows or a good old fashion film. Or simply relax in one of the large sofas with a glass of wine and a good book (a huge library of excellent English books are supplied including fiction, classic novels, biography & thrillers!). Perhaps you would prefer to plug in your iPod and listen to your favourite artist whilst enjoying some easy reading laying in the sun with magazines such as favourites like Homes & Gardens, Country Living, 25 Beautiful Homes, Marie Claire plus Hello, OK and Heat to name but a few.

The older kids will love the Wii console (remember to bring their favourite games too), whilst the little ones will love the toys, games & dressing up clothes and be delighted to find so many games and toys for them to enjoy - Happy children = Happy parents!

Play Equipment (inside and out)
Inside - The kids will just love the plethora of games, toys and books available to them whilst they are staying with us. The children’s bedrooms are stacked with toys, from a train set, building blocks, farm animals, dolls house, dressing up clothes and shoes, to classic family board games and Disney or animal puzzles, plus so much more. We cater too for the very little ones, especially for babies up to toddler age, with interesting and fun toys to keep them entertained. If you were unlucky enough to experience a rainy day on your holiday, then we have thought of that too..... There are fun activities to do as a family, such as making and decorating cup-cakes, colouring and activity sheets, plus seeds to pot up all ready and waiting for your children - great fun!

Outside - The kids will have hours of fun with the swing ball, splashing around in the HEATED & FENCED pool or just simply playing in the garden enjoying their family holiday.
Not to be missed by the whole family is the huge selection of family/children's films.

You will also find a comprehensive folder in the villa listing restaurants, activities and local events, as well as plenty of ideas for entertaining the children. There is a write up of over 20 local restaurants locally we recommend visiting with the kids and recommendations 'just for the grown ups!'

The well-equipped kitchen
The kitchen is the social hub of the barn and is very well equipped including a large 5 burner range cooker, (great for when cooking for large numbers), a pine farmhouse table with 8 chairs, cafetiere & for coffee lovers, a Nespresso coffee machine, (pre-order tabs at www.myholidaytreats.com ), dishwasher, microwave, washing machine, large fridge/freezer, 2 additional fridges (to keep the wine & beer nice and cool!) and ironing facilities.

Those little extras- Le Pressoir is a self catering holiday home so you will need to bring/buy basic essentials. However to make things a little easier for your arrival you will find, complimentary, a small supply of essentials including tea, coffee, sugar, washing-up liquid, dish-cloths, dish washer tablets, bin bags, kitchen foil, cling-film and toilet rolls.

It's the little things that will make this a holiday to remember......

Baking fun - In your holiday home you will also find child friendly, colourful and fun baking equipment so the kids can really have some fun on holiday making a mess! Mixing bowl, spatulas, wooden spoons, teddy silicone mould, whisk, cookie cutters, chocolate moulds plus rolling pin all ready and waiting for the whole family to enjoy. Choose your favourite cupcake from one of the many wonderful recipes supplied (including cappuccino, crème brulee and lemon chiffon) in an easy to follow recipe binder which we are sure the kids, and of course the parents, will love! We also supply fun, easy-to-follow, baby & toddler recipes so the older children can help mum and dad cook for the little ones.

Colouring corner- Kids can relax in the evening and enjoy colouring and drawing - 'Best Friends doodles' express the joy of friendship with it's cool pictures to create, colour and complete. Plus wonderful big busy work sheets with puzzles, mazes, searches, spot the difference, doodling, drawing and colouring. All colouring pencils included so the kids can have creative relaxing time enjoying drawing the best parts of their holiday!

For the little ones we include - a high chair, booster seat, travel cot, changing mat, pushchair, plus essentials like a microwave sterilizer, bottle warmer, food blender, children's crockery, cutlery and themed place mats.

Le Pressoir has four bedrooms with free-standing air-conditioning units - two master bedrooms, one twin bedroom (able to convert into a double bed when more than 4 adults are sharing) and one triple bedroom with a set of bunk beds and one single bed.

Bed sizes - GF master 150cm wide, LGF master 140cm wide, singles 90cm wide

Both master bedrooms have been furnished with restored antique double beds, making the rooms feel especially French! You will find plenty of magazines in each bedroom should you just wish to stay in bed and read! The upper ground floor master bedroom has double french doors and the lower ground floor master bedroom has one large window and two picture windows.

The twin room has adult-size orthopedic quality single beds, along with a large antique wardrobe and a bookcase packed with children's toys and books (including lots of bed-time story books). For more than four adults sharing, the single beds can be made into one large double bed which is larger than a king-size. Please note this bedroom does not have an external window. The triple bedroom has two picutre windows, bunk beds and an extra adult-size single bed, leaving more room for children to play - especially when the train track is assembled!

In each of the sleeping areas (i.e. the ground floor and the lower ground floor), in-between the master and children's bedrooms are adjoining private bathrooms. (sometimes called 'Jack and Jill' bathrooms) This is ideal when families are sharing as each floor has their own bathroom and plenty of privacy. Each of the bathrooms has been equipped with a Jacuzzi bath, a separate shower cubicle and marble-top double hand basins and WC.

100% cotton bed linen as well as bath and hand towels are supplied and beds are made up ready for your arrival for each guest named on the booking form . We also offer large 100% cotton beach towels for hire (saves that bit of extra room in the car on the way home for the great bottles of wine! and a daily maid service (at a supplement) so your beds can be ready for you to slip into after a hard day at the beach or round the pool!

At a glance bathroom arrangement:

Ground floor - Jacuzzi bath, separate shower, double wash hand basin, WC

Lower Ground floor - Jacuzzi bath, separate shower, double wash hand basin, WC

The 12 x 6m heated and fenced swimming pool area
As parents ourselves, we understand that pool safety is of paramount importance. We take this part of holidaying with us extremely seriously.

The swimming pool is surrounded by a 1.15meter high 'Norme Francaise' factory made fence/barrier. It has vertical bars to meet with anti-climbing regulations, be aware that some holiday home owners opt for the cheaper fences that do not conform to the French regulations as they have horizontal bars. (NB - Even if you dont book with us, please always check first with holiday home owners, proir to making a reservation, that their pools have the correct saftey protection in place). Our pool also has a self-sprung lockable gate. On top off these minimum requirements, we supply coded padlocks for extra peace of mind. To maintain the rigidity of the swimming pool gate we have added extra supports to the posts as these get quite a lot of use each day. There is also a detailed sign attached to the swim gate highlighting further information regarding safety within the pool area.

The swimming pool is heated and a thermal cover is supplied to maintain heat overnight. It is cleaned and monitored every other day to ensure the highest standards of health and hygiene are maintained at all times.

The 12 x 6 metre shared swimming pool and toddler slide is surrounded by 150m2 of decking. The pool has been specifically designed and built with children's enjoyment in mind and has both a SAFETY FENCE and has lockable child safety gates. The parents are responsible for holding the keys and ensuring the gate is locked when not in use.

The shallow end is only 1.05m deep (i.e. shallower than normal), so young children can stand in the water easily.

Please note - the pool is shared between our 3 properties, Le Palmier, Le Pressoir and La Pergola so a great opportunity for the kids to meet & play with new friends.

The terrace and garden area
Le Pressoir's private outdoor eating area is accessible from the sitting room via steps leading down to the terrace, garden & pool area (a stair gate has been fitted). Here you can enjoy the 4m x 5m gazebo, which creates a welcome shade during the summer months. You can all eat together on the terrace or the adults can relax eating dinner whilst next to them, the kids can enjoy the 'kiddies size' table and chairs for their own memorable meal times.

Partially laid to lawn, the garden is surrounded by mature plants, trees, shrubs and flowers and overlooks the pool. A chimney-style barbecue has been provided to ensure that you can cook outside in style. The garden is divided by a 1.8m fence (with a large Palm tree in front) to the neighbouring property of Le Palmier.

Local Attractions

The village of 'Angles' & the surrounding area.
Le Pressoir is ideally located under a minutes walk from the wonderful village of Angles with all of its great bars/cafes & restaurants, just minutes to wonderful 'blue flag' sandy beaches and a short drive to lots of great attractions for the whole family to enjoy.

Located so close to the village of Angles, you can visit in the evenings and have a choice of great restaurants or enjoy the large street market on Wednesday and Sunday mornings in the summer months - an excellent opportunity to sample much of the locally produced food, including cheese, meat, fish and wine.

You can sit with the locals and enjoy 'moules & frites' listening to a local band play watching the kids dance to their hearts content.

Located so close to the village, you can either take a leisurely walk down in the morning to pick up your fresh baguette and croissants, or stroll down in the evenings to a choice of great restaurants. You don't have to load all the kids in the car (plus all of the equipment that comes with having a family) to have a great meal out.

You will also find a comprehensive folder in the gîte listing restaurants, activities and local events, as well as plenty of ideas for entertaining the children. There is a huge write up of over 20 local restaurants that we recommend visiting with the kids and if you want some 'adult time' we also arrange the baby-sitting too!

Angles has an Office de Tourisme, a post office, two banks, a hairdresser, a beauty salon, an aromatherapist, a pharmacy, five cafés/bars and four restaurants. There are also two supermarkets, a butchers, a fishmonger & a fruit & vegetable shop.

Whilst they are having fun on the track, the rest of the party can have a nice coffee in the covered terrace area. www.vendee-kart.fr

Excellent golf courses (40 mins from the gite)
France is one of Europe's most popular golfing holiday destinations.
