Summer 2015 New Review – Thank you Spicer Family
You absolutely won’t regret a holiday to the beautiful The Courtyard at Ste Catherine. We have just returned from our 3rd stay with the May family – a wonderfully relaxing 2 week break with a 3 year old boy and 11 month old daughter – Yes it is possible!!
Stephanie is one of the kindest, friendliest and most helpful people I have had the pleasure to meet, her husband Charlie is equally nice and super helpful and Finn is Freddie’s new best friend – helping to teach him to swim as well as the numerous games of soldiers he played with him. On any of our 3 stays nothing has ever been too much trouble, the family go out of their way to ensure we are all having a lovely time and we have already booked to return next year! ( this is a really big thing as I swore I would never return somewhere and I can’t get enough of the place it JUST WORKS WITH KIDS!!)
Chez Aristide is a wonderfully relaxing well equipped gite with a super comfy master bedroom with proper pillows and duvet. The cot and bunk bed are good quality and the children’s rooms are set up with fun duvets and age appropriate boxes of toys and specially picked stories which make bedtime exciting. Bath mat, potty, child loo seat and step are all tucked away ready for you and if you bring your monitor with you you can sit outside and enjoy a delicious meal without worrying about the children as they are safely in the house within the secure courtyard ( or 5 meals in our case as they really are so good). These were the first meals my husband and I have enjoyed since our baby was born last summer and they were perfect.
The swimming pool is wonderfully clean and warm our 11 month old daughter was happily splashing around for 45 minutes 2/3 times a day and our son learnt to swim the 5m width in 2 weeks with a wonderful prize from Steph and Finn on our last day of holiday.
We were advised and helped with the few times times we ventured off site and had great trips to the beach and zoo and highly recommend both along with the plate painting. Next time we hope to try horse riding and bike rides though you really can have a wonderful holiday within 4 walls of The Courtyard.
Don’t delay book you really won’t regret it.
Charlie, Karena, Freddie and Ottilie Spicer
