A Guide to Family Wellness Holidays

Here at Country Kids, we know family holidays are full of expectations. Every family member has their own requirements, and desires, not least the parents. It’s easy to see how overwhelming it can all become. Sylvain and Laure understand more than anyone how important it is for everyone to get some downtime ‘en vacances’ and guarantee that everyone will get what they need, emotionally and physically for the ultimate family wellness holiday.

We allow families to learn healthy habits as schedules and activities in the beautiful rural surroundings are designed to enable everyone to enjoy. Adults can indulge in yoga and spa treatments whereas kids can partake in swimming, tennis and yoga lessons too. You can also visit the new forest farm, located on a beautiful spot of land surrounded by rocks and ancestral trees. The animals are in direct contact with nature and their natural environment. A new sensory games area – including a muddy kitchen and outdoor play area will delight the kids as they enjoy absolute freedom while playing in nature.

Here, it is easy for you to teach the kids about cultural awareness and different traditions around the world too. We are located in Languedoc-Roussillon, a historical coastal region. Lake Lac de Salagou with its own beaches is just five minutes away from Country Kids and it is a fantastic place to walk, cycle, swim, picnic and explore. There are also many local producers of cheese, oils, honeys, fruit and vegetables – a great way to test those little taste buds.

With professional babysitting services and a world-class kids’ club, parents can happily opt for some alone time and take the pressure off entertaining the kid. All in the confidence that they are having fun and learning new skills in the safe and secure grounds. Whether it is making time for a long lunch together, or a walk around St Guilhem le Desert – listed as one of the ‘Most Beautiful Villages’ in France, here at Country Kids we offer as much for the parents as we do the kids.

Get rid of the family holiday planning worries too, from June to Mid-September we offer an Absolutely Everything Package. With this package you can enjoy luxurious and spacious accommodation, all food and drink including alcohol, twice daily housekeeping, daytime childcare, a dedicated babysitter, animal feeding activities for kids, expert wine tastings, the yoga and spa treatments for adults, yoga for kids, swimming and tennis lessons for kids, and a washing and ironing service.
