The Experience

Family holidays South of France

Bonjour !

We are Laure and Sylvain (Farmer Syl) and we will be your hosts during your stay at Country Kids. We live on site with our two young daughters Mila and Emy. We both attained our MBA degrees in tourism and set out on career paths working for large hotel chains. After the birth of our first daughter we decided to search for a new family focussed lifestyle. One where quality family time would not have to be compromised for the excitement of a demanding job.

Bonjour !

We are Laure and Sylvain (Farmer Syl) and we will be your hosts during your stay at Country Kids. We live on site with our two young daughters Mila and Emy. We both attained our MBA degrees in tourism and set out on career paths working for large hotel chains. After the birth of our first daughter we decided to search for a new family focussed lifestyle. One where quality family time would not have to be compromised for the excitement of a demanding job.

This is how we discovered this little paradise called Country Kids. Straight away, we felt that was the perfect place for us . Since 2007 Country Kids has been welcoming happy families for their dream holidays in the South of France. We decided to take up the reigns in 2015 when we took over the resort from it's creators, Tracey and Stuart.

Each week, we welcome seven families with the help of our team of 20 staff members including; our on-site chef, qualified childcare and hospitality professionals, meticulous housekeeping and grounds crew and on-site beautician/massage therapist. We also work closely with some dedicated and trusted on site contractors including a professional tennis coach, swimming instructor and yoga teacher to name but a few.

Together, on our exclusive setting deep in the french countryside we can guarantee the best family holiday you’ve ever experienced. We continue to work hard to give our 5 star luxury family resort an effortless feel in this intimate and that’s why 70% of our guests rebook, year after year.

Safe & Secure ground

Peace of mind. That’s what you’re looking for when choosing your family holiday. You want to be sure that wherever you choose to go, your family is safe and secure at all times. At Country Kids the grounds are designed with you and your child’s safety in mind. It is a car free, gated and fenced environment. You really can switch off, relax and let your kids run free.

This unique freedom on holiday for both you and your kids is very important to us and is part of what makes Country Kids so special.

At the centre of the resort and your holiday you will find our bar and shop. Comfy cushion clad sofas and armchairs are many, so there’s always somewhere to relax with that book you’ve been meaning to read. Wide open and under the shade of the trees in the height of summer and closed in those cooler evenings under the canopy of warming lights, it’s where you will spend lots of your time. Relaxing and talking together is one of the things that our guests really love about their childcare-inclusive holidays at Country Kids.

Fresh pastries and crusty baguettes are to be enjoyed with barista quality coffee first thing in the morning. Lunch is ordered and can be taken on one of those comfy sofas or down by the pool. It’s up to you. Catch up with other guests at the daily tea time over a slice of creamy cake before your afternoon swim in the pool with the kids.

The shop is stocked with everything you could possibly need to have a truly worry free holiday. A freezer packed with home cooked meals by our Chef has exciting French cuisine to discover as well as crowd pleasing classics. You’ll also find our extensive DVD library for those cosy evenings in on the sofa. Need some nappies or suncream? No worries, along with a fridge full of fresh goods and shelves stocked with everything you need if you fancy cooking, we stock everything else you may need but have forgotten to pack.

Select a bottle from our wine cellar, ‘La Cave’, which has been carefully stocked with the best the region has to offer. Enjoy a glass as an ‘apero’ before family dinner or your evening out. Choose one of our craft beers while you play yet another game of Boules with the other guests.

Our spirit selection has something for all tastes. Smokey single malts, small batch local gins, spiced rums and even old classics such as Pimm’s are all there for you. Weekly cocktail night is the best time to explore the selection, where we have something for everyone on our comprehensive list.

This isn’t just a luxury resort with world-class childcare, it’s a place where you can have grownup social time, too.

Activities

There is plenty to do or simply plenty of time to do nothing at all during your family holiday in the south of France. Country Kids provides many on-site and off-site activities that you and your kids will love. We will help you discover the region’s best activities that are well-suited for your family. Just think of us as your personal tour guides.

We give you all the tips, maps and picnics you need to make the most of it.

The Region

Country Kids Resort is on the grounds of our exclusive private estate called Le Mas Pandit, which is in the village of Octon, in the Occitanie region. This part of France is a real hidden gem and is rich in its history traditions and culture. It has a thriving tourist trade, but mainly with the French, as they understand it’s true value. So, while you’re here, you’ll be holidaying like the French!

The Hérault is made for family holidays. It is known for its rustic old stone buildings, lively markets, Mediterranean beaches and of course, it’s wine. Lac du Salagou, just at the bottom of the hill, is a jewell and a fantastic place to walk, cycle, swim, picnic and explore. We have spent many happy hours there with our two kids, climbing the rocks and swimming the inlets while soaking up the sun-drenched scenery.
