Holiday Inspiration: Country Kids
Posted on 11th Sep 2015
Nestled in the beautiful French countryside lies Country Kids, a luxury family resort that prides itself on being a haven for both children and parents. The close-knit team is run by founders Stuart and Tracey Scher, who moved from London to the South of France to raise their four children in 2004. Stuart and Tracey were so enamoured by the fresh air and way of life in France that they decided they wanted to share their experience with other families; a year later they opened Country Kids.
The resort only ever has six families staying at one time, meaning that it’s a very safe and friendly environment for children. Kids are beautifully looked after by professional child care workers in an award winning crèche, Kids Club and Big Kids Programme. There are a myriad of different activities for little ones to choose from. Families can visit the petting farm (a five minute walk or short tractor ride away), have swimming lessons, tennis lessons or even French conversation lessons. Other activities include everything from horse and carriage rides to archery.
In peak season Country Kids offer an ‘Absolutely Everything’s Included’ deal, which really does include everything, from unlimited food and drinks, to yoga lessons, to washing and ironing service. During low season, holidays are self-catering and families can enjoy chef-prepared frozen meals, daily delivered bakery products and groceries from the onsite shop.
Country Kids places particular emphasis on parents’ holiday experiences. They know that holidays can be far from relaxing when you have young children in tow, so they seek to ensure that parents, too, get a well-earned break. The resort can organise expert wine tastings, gourmet meals and spa treatments specifically for parents, in order to allow them to fully switch off and enjoy themselves.
