May 11, 2023

Parents Deserve to Indulge, Too

Do you need a holiday with childcare included? Are you worried about keeping your kids entertained and safe while you’re away from home? As parents ourselves, we understand the challenge of finding suitable childcare while getting time to relax and recharge yourselves. It’s a major reason we founded Country Kids.

Choosing the right family-friendly resort is a game-changer for busy parents. You want the perfect opportunity to unwind while your kids are enjoying the holiday of a lifetime. A memory-creating break from the rush-and-tear back home.

In this article, we explore everything you need to know when considering a family holiday with childcare ─ from the benefits of having your little ones cared for, to tips to help you choose which are the best holiday childcare options for your family’s needs and preferences.

Why Choose a Holiday with Childcare?

Summer holidays should be a time when everyone gets to experience fun, excitement, and peace and quiet. For parents with young children, getting the balance right can be difficult. A child-friendly holiday is a must ─ one that allows you some time off from your parenting duties to indulge in reconnecting as a couple and washing away the strains of your daily routines.

Holidaying in a resort with a kids’ club or creche can give you a few hours of ‘you time’ during the day. But what about at night? Wouldn’t it be great to have the chance for a romantic meal together, in a fantastic restaurant, without the possibility of being disturbed by the kids?

With services provided by experts, your children could enjoy many activities, including nature walks, fun games, and playtimes, while you can indulge in more adult activities like spa treatments and culinary experiences ─ or simply relaxing by the pool with a cool cocktail.

A luxury family holiday with family-friendly facilities offering free childcare could be the answer to all your wishes.

Types of Childcare on Holiday

There are many types of childcare available. Which is best for you depends on several factors, such as your children’s ages, their interests and preferences, and, of course, what you like to do with your free time. Older children require less looking after, while younger children will enjoy the range of activities provided by a kids’ club.

Whatever the age of your children, you deserve the peace of mind provided by qualified childcare services, which might include:

  • Evening childcare and babysitting services that allow parents to enjoy a few hours alone
  • A children’s club that provides appropriate, educational, and enjoyable activities
  • Holiday nanny service that offers dedicated and personal care for your children

At Country Kids, our expert-led childcare services cater to your specific needs.

We offer babysitting services that ensure your children are safe and secure in your family-friendly, luxury accommodation while you enjoy an evening of wining and dining in a local restaurant. Our experienced childcare professionals are trained to provide a safe, fun, and engaging environment for your children.

Your children will love our kids’ club, too. They’ll make new friends, help out on our farm, and take part in many activities that are designed to cater to the specific needs and preferences of the families we host.

Popular Destinations for Holidays with Childcare

When it comes to selecting where to go on holiday, many families choose a family-friendly hotel or child-friendly resort.

Your first decision may be where to go. Popular destinations in Europe include Spain, Greece, Italy, and, of course, France.

You’ll also need to decide what type of activities you want to include in your holiday. Do you prefer the beach and dipping in the sea, or are you more at ease sitting by a pool? Do you enjoy getting out and about in nature and exploring the local environment, or are you the type of family that is happiest when holidaying in an all-inclusive resort?

Our Country Kids resort is located in the heart of the South of France. Surrounded by some of the best countryside that France has to offer, we are less than an hour from the coast. On site, we offer a unique family holiday experience that combines luxury accommodation with expert childcare services, and activities for parents as well as your children.

Our 30-acre estate is home to a working farm, a heated swimming pool, and much more. Parents can indulge in a range of activities like wine tasting, and yoga sessions while their children are cared for by our trained professionals.

Activities for the kids include cooking, arts and crafts, and outdoor sports. Children can also help feed and take care of our farm animals, which is always a hit with the little ones. In the evenings, our babysitting services allow parents to enjoy a romantic dinner in a local restaurant or simply relax in their accommodation.

On your first day with us, we’ll help you organise a program for the rest of the week. In fact, we take all the pressure of planning from you ─ allowing you to relax and enjoy your time with us from day one. Our all-inclusive packages are like none you’ve ever experienced – providing superb family dining, and including full access to our wine cellar!
