Pierre & Vacances offer a wide variety of accommodation at their resorts all of which is self-catering. Of course if you don’t want to be cooking all the time there are places to eat out in the resorts and many of them offer takeaway meals too to enjoy in the comfort of your own surroundings. There's a variety of accommodation types to choose from with everything from studios (2-4 people), apartments (4-8 people), villas (5-8 people), country houses (4-8 people) and holiday houses (4-8 people). All accommodation comes fully equipped and also feature balconies or gardens and great views across the resort.
Accommodation facilities and layout will differ slightly from resort to resort but generally you'll find each has a living / dining area with a sofa-bed, television and phone. There’s a kitchenette area and breakfast bar and the kitchenettes tend to include an electric hob, fridge-freezer, a microwave / grill / oven, a dishwasher and a coffee maker. All cutlery, crockery and cooking equipment is provided.
Kettles are normally included but if you love tea as much as we do it's worth double checking, or bring a travel kettle with you. You may also want to bring a radio, stereo or mp3 player speakers. WiFi internet access is available in most accommodation for an additional charge too if you'd like to stay connected with friends and family back home.
Each bedroom has storage space, sometimes there’s additional storage space in the landing area upstairs. The shower is usually handheld and you may want to bring a bath mat for the bath as it can be slippery for young children.
Bath towels, handtowels, tea towels and bed linen are provided and these are refreshed if your stay is longer than seven days. On arrival you’re given a wash kit which includes a cleaning cloth, scourer, washing up liquid, dishwasher tablets and cleaning solution. Other equipment includes a broom, dustpan and brush, scrubbing brush and clothes airer.
The accommodation does not include a washing machine, instead each of the resorts has at least one launderette. Do have Euro coins handy in case the machines aren’t giving change.
If you have a baby with you there are also handy Baby Kits available at many of the villages which can save on any extra packing space for a small fee.. These include a travel cot with bed linen, a changing mat, baby bath, highchair and pushchair. Make sure you reserve this when booking.
The resorts are generally car-free, in some this means you may not always be able to park next to where you’re staying but is obviously a big attraction for families wanting to ensure that the local area is a safe place for kids to roam around in.
