Treat yourself to a lie in on holiday at this family friendly villa

Penny, owner of this beautiful family friendly villa in rural France (3 bedrooms), offers the most amazingly flexible and considerate child care service we’ve come across.

Norland Trained NNEB Penny will even come to your villa in the morning, get your kids breakfast, get them dressed and then entertain them all morning while you go back to bed. How amazing is that!

Of course you don’t have to go back to bed…you could spend your time around the pool, reading a book, going on a bike ride or a run…whatever floats your boat.

Mum and dad get some time to themselves and the children are well entertained so when you re-group you are refreshed and ready to enjoy quality time en famille for the rest of the day.

Here’s what Penny says about her child care service…

 “I offer very flexible child care but it’s the early morning care which is particularly popular at my family friendly villa.  I arrive at your villa at a pre-arranged time each morning with different activities including play dough, bubble painting, cooking cup cakes and chalk drawing.
After giving children their breakfast and getting them dressed I take them for a walk and we feed the chickens & collect the eggs.
We’ll then have another activity followed by a snack with stories and songs.
We make the most of the outdoors where we have the huge sandpit, garden toys, swings and more.
Mum and dad can go back to bed or do anything they want to really.  Most parents like to catch up on a bit of sleep then go for a run or swim and maybe pop in to the town for a coffee before returning to their family friendly villa to get on with the day.

Generally a morning with me sets mum and dad up for the day and the family can then go off to do their own thing. Likewise the later part of the afternoon is a popular choice.  The family have a day out and about or by the pool, and when mum and dad want to just collapse, I arrive to give the kids tea, have a few games and I can even do bath time and stories all ready for parents to have a kiss and a cuddle with clean calm small people.

 Complete flexibility
There’s no up front commitment to worry about.  I have a chat with mum before the family are due to arrive to find out if they’d like child care during their holiday and I can offer ideas about how I can help.
It’s not until the family arrive and we’ve all met each other that we decide on a particular schedule for the week.  And even then it’s on a very ‘play it by ear’ basis on the family’s  part …so adding an hour here or there or altering plans depending on the weather isn’t a problem at all. That way guests still retain that sense of freedom that’s so important on holiday.”
Move over Mary Poppins!
