This intimate complex of family-friendly apartments in 30 acres of grounds in the Languedoc-Roussillon region of southern France is the kind of place where everything has been thought of when it comes to stress-free family holidays. But you do need to book well ahead. Country Kids' winning formula – first-rate facilities including swimming pools, trampolines and a petting zoo, accredited childcare from three months, a great kids' club for ages 6+, a Big Kids program in the school holidays for 6-12-year-olds, luxury accommodation and babysitting (all included), for only a handful of guests at any one time, within safe, secure grounds – have made it very popular.
Country Kids accommodates seven families in beautifully restored old stone buildings. All master bedrooms are light and airy, with 2m-wide king-size beds. Each apartment has a hand-built stone and timber kitchen and an outdoor dining area, plus luxurious bathrooms, many with marble floors and large baths. Two apartments are suitable for large or two families to share, or for grandparents to come along, making this a great option for holidays with friends or multigenerational holidays. The children’s rooms are simply wonderful, with plenty of toys, books and children's DVDs.
A fully inclusive package is offered from June to mid-September, and a self-catering package in April, May and mid-September to October.
