Are you and your family looking for a holiday in France this year? With your own gite but a little fun on site? Or maybe you are a family planning to holiday with other families who would like their own space and also have lots to do? Gite complexes offer the perfect balance of freedom for the kids, adult time and family time all wrapped into one lovely holiday package. Some offer all inclusive packages, spa treatments and more where others offer kids clubs and self-catering cottages, there really is something for every family. All of the pools are enclosed (as with all properties on Holiday Tots and each accommodation comes kitted out with baby and toddler kit – check with each owner for details as some offer extras too) so…
Here is a selection of baby and toddler-friendly gite complex’s in France, flyable, drive-able (some if you don’t mind a bit of a long road trip or maybe adding a pit stop complex to break up the journey!), worth adding to the ‘thought list’ for a family holiday or group holiday this year…
