Don’t hesitate to call us for further information or to find answers to your questions, since every family is unique and will have specific requirements!
Finca El Coto, Mallorca. Finca El Coto sits within a luscious rural setting with sea views beyond, with stunning living areas both indoor and outside for relaxing in, the covered veranda a particular favourite in the heat of the day for cooling off! The solar powered heated pool allows little ones less of a shock when splashing about in the waters and gives parents a good ‘eco tick’ when pondering the climate change debacle! The villa lies within it’s own gorgeous gardens, great for exploring, and for the more adventurous families head to the National Park of Cala Mondrago for the marvellous sandy beaches. With other beaches only 2km away, a twice weekly market to wander through and inspire children with new flavours and aromas and delicious restaurants to eat at (remember the Spaniards are very child friendly) this villa will enable complete relaxation for the whole family.
Villa Orpheus, Greece. This calm, spacious and peaceful villa boasts exceptional views over Mykonos and the great Aegean Blue; who couldn’t be enchanted and unwound in a location like this? Its elevated position secures a tranquillity that allows young children to have no problems nodding off to sleep after a busy day playing by the pool and on the beach, and it’s classic white rounded edges on both the interior and exterior allow parents to relax as bumps and bruises are less sharp in this traditional Greek design. With it’s proximity to the airport (15 minutes) the stress of long travel is avoided, and also to the beach and town, enabling days out should you successfully tear yourself away from the villa itself! And if that wasn’t enough the villa comes with a private chef so all that you need to do is enjoy spending quality time with your family as delicious Grecian cuisine cooking smells waft through the terraces as you enjoy pre dinner drinks at sunset.
Villa Stabbi, Italy. This is the perfect villa for all ages of families, since there are ample grounds for running around in and a beautiful natural stone swimming pool for younger children, but for older children there’s also a tennis court, fitness centre and bocce for the more competitive members of your family -watch out for the game taking over your holiday though as it’s remarkably addictive! Also within the grounds is a wood fired pizza oven, which delights and intrigues- bring out the budding chef in your children with this interactive and fun feature of the villa! And then between your new mini chefs and the personal chef that can be arranged there is not much more to do than laze by the pool and enjoy delicious Italian food and views!
Villa Bonnieux, France. Enjoy French rural living amongst breath taking scenery but with all the contemporary features to make your stay as comfortable as possible. The large well kept gardens stretch out to meet lavender fields, vineyards, olive groves and cherry orchards, bliss in itself, but also space for lots of playing and exploring for your children. If the need takes you for an outing then the charming Provencal hilltop village of Bonnieux will fit the bill, with quiet rustic streets and delicious local restaurants and bakeries, get your children practising their French, giving them a sense of purpose and making their French lessons come alive when back at school! Also with a boules court for evening family championships, a BBQ for true outdoor living and a home cinema if a bit of quiet downtime is needed of an evening (and maybe a chance for parents to have some downtime too without the children!)
Sea Oats Captiva Island, Florida. This glorious villa is designed to feel like a home away from home, with all your family’s needs catered for and family time at the heart of its design. Set in a ‘U’ shape, the central open-air section houses the swimming pool, but the grounds also have direct access to tennis courts, the beach and the villa’s garden. It has been newly decorated with a laid back style, chic and clean with an element of the ‘beach feel’, families will feel that they have stepped into the perfect location for an utterly memorable holiday. With all the activities on site it would be hard to imagine leaving, however the island Captiva is also teeming with activities for all ages to enjoy, whether it’s playing for hours on the white tropical beaches, diving to see the incredible underwater wildlife or participating in one of many watersports that can be arranged.
