Our vision for holidays at La Charriere is to offer holiday accommodation that is accessible to all. Our accommodation has been officially recognised and approved by the French Tourism Board as suitable for disabled guests including wheelchair users with facilities to make your holiday a real break.N-MMEAV

What our guests say:

“Dear Paul, this is just to thank you for allowing us to have such a good holiday. Holidays are very important for carers as well as the disabled person together with, of course, the other children of the family. Everyone of us   will remember and talk about  the holiday with have just had with you for the rest of our lives. Thank you. The fact that another family in the gite at the other end of your estate shared so to speak the facilities–the pool and badmington court–really did not impinge whatsoever on us or the enjoyment we had. Incidently the overall cost of our holday with you was less  than last year when we rented a cheaper gite. The reason for this is because the wonderful facilities at the gite meant we did not feel the need to go out very much and going out inevitably involves spending money!!”

Best wishes and again many thanks, Chris Adams (August 09)

“The fact that my wife is a paraplegic, is always cause for concern when visiting a new gite for the first time having regards to showering, toileting and ensuring ample space for a hoist, particularly under the bed. We needn’t have worried, both gites were just fine for our needs and the fact that you have your own shower chair and that you observed the way my wife was manoeuvred around the grounds was very reassuring. I would certainly recommend this property to all, irrespective of wheelchair or not.”

La Baie has been adpated to be suitable for disabled users.The main bathroom has a ‘wet-room’ shower and toilet at suitable height with transfer bar. One bedroom has enough space to easily turn a wheelchair, basin and wardrobe suitable for wheelchair users, and there is space under the bed for use of a hoist. There are wide doorways to the adapted bedroom, bathroom, and living areas.

Le Chene has been designed and built to be suitable for disabled users.One of the bedrooms has an en-suite shower room and is fitted grab rails. The bedroom has enough space to easily turn a wheelchair and there is space under the bed for use of a hoist. There is a ramp in through the main entrance and another offering access out to the patio at the rear. Doors for all main rooms are suitably wide and the living areas have been designed to give plenty of room to move and turn a wheelchair.

We can offer guests the use of a Aquatec showerchair and are easily able to hire other equipment (e.g. bed hoist) for disabled guests locally at very reasonable prices. We hope this will minimise the amount of equipment you need to bring when you come to stay.

The accommodation also suits those who are hearing and sight impaired, and we are happy to welcome and offer assistance to make your stay as enjoyable as possible.

We understand that each group and individual will have specific needs. Please contact us to discuss your booking and ensure the facilities on offer match your requirements.
