Are you browsing the Web for relaxing October holidays with exceptional childcare? Fall is a good time of year to plan a family trip to the South of France. It’s vendange tardive (late harvest), here. Grape pickers work hard during sun-filled days. Most tourists have gone home. Older kids have returned to school. And there’s a calm, serene quality to the breezy countryside.
What can parents expect during October holidays at Country Kids?
October is a quieter month for parents longing for peaceful family holidays among delightful colours and tastes of the South of France. Country Kids provides world-class childcare, so parents are free to take walks amidst dazzling fall foliage. They have tennis matches. They sample pairings of wine and treats made from local chestnuts. They attend festivals, such as Nuit Blanche to peruse local arts and crafts. They attend a morning market to find fresh olives, rare saffron and Pélardon (goat cheese). Some take a dip in our 30° heated pool. Others live for rejuvenating luxury spa services. Imagine all you can do during your last-minute fall getaway.
What can young kids do at the Kids’ Club during October holidays?
Parents of preschool-aged children return to the Country Kids resort for October holidays made for little ones. Our Kids’ Club caregivers plan activities for babies, toddlers and preschoolers. Sensory play is the focus during these special October holidays for young kids. Most little ones enjoy craft time, painting and dress-up. They join the farmer to feed the animals each morning. They watch puppet shows. They curl up for story time. They help put icing on Rebecca’s freshly baked cupcakes. Kids take in the fresh air as they roam the child-safe farm. They go on day trips with their parents or stick around for family swims in our 30° heated pool.
What should families bring on October holidays in the Hérault?
Fall activities at our family resort can easily go from warm swims in our heated pool to artsy night markets with a slight chill in the air. Bring your usual attire for hikes, tennis, yoga, sunny afternoons at the beach, rainy days with a good book and lazy mornings fishing on the lake. You may want to bring a light sweater or a light rain jacket. Kids often need lots of changes of clothes, but remember there is in-suite laundry in your apartment and an assortment of modern amenities and convenience items—everything from nappies to ready-to-heat meals—in our shop. Vendange (harvest) brings beautifully coloured landscapes, so don’t forget your camera.
Even though the sidewalks seem to have rolled up in the bustling villages and vineyards are busy tending to the harvest, it’s a wonderful time for a getaway, especially if you desire less traffic, less queues and more opportunities to relax, unwind and enjoy your holiday in peace.
