Interaction with guests
We greet you on arrival but we do not live onsite. We live just 2km away at our La Grange du Moulin property. Chris will visit every morning to tend the pool and gardens but is not intrusive, he's happy to chat though if you have questions, need a beach recommendation, want a restaurant booked, a sink unblocked or a Drs appointment.. We are also available to call on anytime between 8am and 8pm or 24/7 in an emergency. We offer fun activities each week, mostly based at our La Grange du Moulin property, which guests at Les Vallaies are invited to - join in, or not - the choice is yours.

Getting around
A car is essential, there is no public transport and the one local taxi firm is a one woman band, so must be booked in advance and is expensive. The roads are quiet and it's a pleasure to drive, so the coast, although an hour away, is an easy hours drive. There is also lots to do much closer to home.
