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

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.
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.
NB - this bedroom does not have an external window but one internal window above the door that allows light and air in from the hallway.
Le Pressoir's private outdoor eating area is accessible from the sitting room via approx. 7 steps leading down to the terrace, garden & pool area (a stair gate has been fitted at the top). 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. Or have breakfast on the deck area overlooking the pool.....
The garden is divided by a 1.8m fence (with a large Palm tree in front) to the neighbouring property of Le Palmier.
The triple bedroom has 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 double and children's bedrooms are adjoining private bathrooms ('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 double hand basins and WC.
Le Pressoir has four bedrooms - two double 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.
Both double bedrooms have been furnished with king-size beds, You will find plenty of great English books at Le Pressoir should you just wish to stay in bed and read!
Please note the lower ground floor (being semi-basement) has limited natural light although there is a large opening window and two opening picture windows (small window) in the double bedroom and 2 opening picture windows in the kids room.
Many clients find this a huge benefit as it keeps the rooms nice & cool in the summer and helps when they want the kids to sleep in a little....!!
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 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.
