This was our third time staying in the Emerald Coast Gites and won't be our last. As a family with three young children (5,3 and 11 months) it is hard to find a holiday where both you and your children can enjoy as a family and as some quality time with your partner. Simon and Lesley the owners of the Emerald Coast Gites have certainly figured out how to do this and the result is a holiday for everyone, something very rare indeed. We have stayed in No 1,3 and 4 of the Gites and all are furnished to a very high standard and clean. Subtle touches such as the welcome pack and toiletries by the ever thoughtful Leslie really give the Gites that little bit extra that really makes the difference. The area around the Gites is completely secure and means that you can open the door and let the kids out to run wild and free safe in the knowledge that they can't go far. It is things such as this that you just don't find in other family friendly Gates. I suppose that is the ethos that Simon and Leslie are trying to achieve, their laid back and friendly attitude rubs off on you and by the end of our stay we where completely chilled out and de-stressed, surely the whole point of a holiday. Added to this is Leslie cooking, which is fantastic, most days there is a "Plat du Jour" cooked by Leslie which we have found is always great. So much so that we only had to cook for ourselves once during our stay, Leslie will deliver it over to the Gate at a time you want, which means you can get the little ones down and sit down to a nice meal with your better half. We found most nights we would head up to the bar onsite, the great thing is the baby monitors for the Gites work in the bar as all the gites are only a few yards from it. You can go down to bar and meet, socialise with the other residents and swap child raising war stories. So if you have young kids and want a family holiday that actually feels like a holiday go to Emerald Coast Gites.
