Le Palmier is a 4 bedroom stone-built traditional farmhouse with lots of 'home essential' UK touches! It makes the perfect holiday home for family/friends sharing.
It's under a 10-minute drive from 'Blue Flag' sandy beaches, a minutes walk from the local village with bars/cafes/restaurants & weekly markets and has a huge variety of fabulous family attractions close by.
We don't claim to be 'luxury', we know that's a matter of personal opinion, however we do have a passion for 'detail' and offer a comfy child-friendly holiday home, with excellent facilities and a 1st class service.
The kitchen is very well-equipped including a 5 burner range cooker (ideal when cooking for large numbers), a farmhouse table with chairs and benches, dishwasher, microwave, washing machine, plus a high chair with support cushion, kids crockery, cutlery & plastic beakers. Cafetiere and just for you coffee lovers - a Nespresso coffee machine.
Lots of large serving dishes, crockery and cutlery are provided, so there will be no shortage when cooking a large family meal.
It's the little things that will make this a holiday to remember......
We catered for the little ones - high chair with support cushion, booster seat, child-friendly plastic crockery & cutlery, themed placemats, a baby-bottle warmer, hand food blender and a bottle steriliser
Baking fun - In the kitchen you will also find child friendly, colourful and fun baking equipment so the kids can really have some fun on holiday making a mess!

Choose your favourite cupcake from one of the many wonderful recipes supplied (including cappuccino, crème brûlée 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.

The shallow end is only 1.05m deep (i.e. shallower than normal), so young children can stand in the water easily.
Adults only hot tub
Why not climb into your own private 3 person hot tub and chill out as the warm waters help you unwind. A perfect place to chat and share your day’s holiday experiences with your family/friends.
Note of pool safety
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, hot tub & sauna is surrounded by a 1.15 metre 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 don't book with us, please always check first with holiday home owners, prior to making a reservation, that their pools have the correct safety protection in place).
Our pool area also has a self-sprung lockable gate. On top of 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. The swimming pool is cleaned and monitored regularly to ensure the highest standards of health and hygiene are maintained.
The swimming pool, 2-person hot tub & 3-person sauna are shared between our 3 properties, Le Palmier, Le Pressoir and La Pergola.
