What makes Country Kids holidays so special ?

Jun 1, 2021

Why is it any different from any other child friendly holiday resort?  Well, we think it’s best to let our guests explain!  Here’s some of their wonderful kind comments from various online review sites.


What Country Kids is all about ?

“Nestled in a secluded little village in the stunning Occitanie region, Country Kids is one of France’s best kept secrets.  I’ve just returned from the most magical, stress-free week with my partner and our three-year-old daughter.

 For our holiday this year I really wanted to spend quality time with my family and after reading the reviews about Country Kids I knew it was the place for us.

 Trust me, the gorgeous, down-to-earth, five-star resort is everything and more.

It’s so peaceful, the minute you walk through the gates you know you are somewhere special.

The grounds are stunning, the apartment was like a mini farm house, stocked with everything we needed for the week” Demelza


Why it’s a happy place for the whole family ?

“The simple genius of Country Kids is the fact the kids can run free, explore and play with other children & make new friends whilst you know they’re happy. It’s a fantastic holiday for them, with other little ones and the parents. As parents, you are confident they are safe, entertained and having a whole week of fun” John B

So regardless of what time of year you stay, you and your family will have a family ready, fully kitted out, self-contained rustic French countryside accommodation with all mod cons.  On site, you will have free access to all of our on-site amenities in and of course, drop in drop off Crèche/Kids club and babysitting nights are standard!

Don’t forget our onsite petting farm experience, The Farm in the forest.  Every morning, everyone can take a ride through the fields on the back of Farmer Syl’s tractor to feed the Animals.

“Both of our children (2 and 4) loved the morning tractor rides to the farm to feed Apache the horse, collect eggs from the chickens and feed the pigs!” Amber

With all of this going on, surely it must be very hectic?  Not according to Zoe100 who says that “We travel a lot as a family, and I can honestly say that our week at Country Kids was the most relaxing holiday that we’ve had in years! From the moment we arrived, everything was taken care of.”

 The perfect space for some down to earth quality family time.  To find out why Rebecca thinks that Country Kids is more than just a family-friendly holiday, it’s like joining a (seriously friendly) family for a week or two”


When can we take our holiday at Country Kids ?

At Country Kids we have two different holidays at different times of the year. April – June/September-October we run our A la Carte holiday plan but during the summer season, we step it up into our Absolutely Everything Included summer holiday experience.

 The difference between the two is that while during the high summer months where Absolutely everything is indeed included, during the A la Carte period, you get to pick and choose which activities and services you and your family wish to enjoy.


What is food like while at Country Kids ?

We love food and so do our guests.  The day starts with a full continental buffet breakfast in the bar during the Absolutely Everything Included season, and for the A la Carte period, fresh pastries and bread are delivered from a local bakery every morning.

“Breakfast now a continental style was lovely with fresh fruit, bread, pastries, yogurts etc which the children love to collect in the morning.” Leigh G

This gives the kids newfound holiday independence a good use !

We have an on-site chef preparing a lunch menu every day, Including a group Cassoulet lunch and BBQ feast.  Lauren C who stayed with us in our Absolutely Everything Included period wrote: “all amazing food – prawn & oyster night, mussels’ night, tapas night, the infamous BBQ (!), wine/regional cheese tasting eve, extensive lunches or picnics if you want to explore!”


What to expect from our Crèche and Kids club ?

You’re probably thinking that if your kids have seen one, then they have seen them all.  There’s no way ours will stay in there all day!  Well, ours is like no other.

“In particular our children have never been fond of children’s clubs, however due to the personal, welcoming environment our children (with ages ranging from 5-10) were more than completely satisfied with their exciting environment.” The coskers

“The part we love about country kids the most is the fact that we don’t have to think about anything, the kids and the parents’ needs are all taken care of. If you have small children then the creche is fantastic and ours were always happy to be left playing and creating with other children and the fantastic staff.” PeterS63


What about that much needed couples time?

“for the parents, (your) space might be the lovely farm house apartment, the spa, the pool, a cabana by the pool, tennis, the bar, a date night or two, a bike ride, boules, the wine cellar, a good book with time and space to read it!” Mummylovesholiday  She found her ‘happy space’ here at Country kids.

“On no other holiday we have been able to read our books, relax, have some amazing couple time (eg. at the phenomenal La Palombe restaurant just down the road, visiting vineyards and riding E bikes) but also unforgettable family time” HFG374

So, we can’t really tell you anymore to proves you that Country Kids is

 A heaven for parents and a paradise for kids
