Our Unique Approach to Family Travel

We specialise in finding — and developing our own — beautiful properties for families who want to holiday with babies and small children.


We take having fun on holiday seriously. And we’re committed to giving every mum and dad the opportunity and confidence to go anywhere with their little ones, by providing everything they need for a seamless and safe travel experience.

Property search and selection

We personally visit and inspect every property to assess suitability for families with under fives. The purpose of our visit is to check things such as:

  • Does it look like it does in the photographs?
  • Is the location easy for families to get to?
  • What can families with small children do in the local area?
  • Are properties family sized?
  • Do cots fit comfortably in bedrooms and is the layout appropriate for families?
  • Where can children play while being watched by parents?

  • A gated terrace before the entrance to the pool

We also check:

Why we do it

“When my son Barnaby fell into an unenclosed swimming pool on a family holiday in France in 2005, it set an unstinting commitment to seek safe, family friendly holiday homes that provide the perfect backdrop for your holiday.

So in April 2006 I set up Tots To Travel, a specialist family friendly villa and resort company that started by asking the question...

"What really frustrates and worries mums and dads when they are planning, booking and going on holiday?"

...and then seeking to find solutions." - Wendy Shand, Mum of three and founder of Tots to Travel
