Overview

With 10 years experience having hosted hundreds of happy families, Country Kids has put together the ultimate 'absolutely everything's included' family holiday in the Languedoc. Their recipe for total family satisfaction is simple: stylish rustic accommodation within a stunning country estate, combined with a wide range of fun activities for kids with delightful indulgences for parents plus accedited comprehensive childcare, home cooked food and you have something truly special.

Included with all holidays is the unlimited use of the fully regulated crèche and kids club, that is open six days a week and takes babies from ten weeks up to kids of six years. During school holidays there is a Big Kids Programme for six to twelve-year-olds. Daily housekeeping, use of all the facilities and the visits to the petting farm are also included to ensure a carefree family holiday. As if that wasn't enough, you will receive two nights inclusive babysitting so you can escape for a romantic dinner.

We love how Country Kids allows parents to also be on holiday. Parents might like to chill by the azure pool or relax with a massage at the gorgeous spa. There are yoga classes to unwind and wine tastings for those who wish to get acquainted with the region's greatest export. We can't forget the 24 hour bar.

In June, July and August, holidays at Country Kids are on a fully inclusive basis with all activities, treatments, meals, snacks, drinks and childcare included. For the rest of the season, many elements are offered on an optional basis and self catering, so families can tailor holidays to their preferences. 

We think that owners Sylvian and Laure have created something truly special at Country Kids. In addition to the prestigious awards it has won, we think guest testimonials say it best - it's regularly described as 'magical', 'outstanding' and 'enchanting'. Perhaps this is why 70% of guests choose to rebook.

Please note: Country Kids is ONLY available on a weekly basis, with check-in and check-out on a Saturday. Rates at Country Kids are quoted per week for up to 4 people, with a per person supplement for additional guests between £400 - £700 depending on season.


HOSTS

unnamed"We believe in lots of fun for kids, relaxation for parents and perhaps most importantly, lots of quality family time. For us, satisfaction is seeing kids and parents happy and enjoying their holiday, at the same time and in the same place."

- Sylvain & Laure Neveu

Activities

The 30 acres surrounding Le Mas Pandit play host to a safety-fenced heated pool with a slide and a toddler pool, an adults only pool and jacuzzi, tennis court, trampolines, sand pit, tree house, climbing frames, 9 hole mini golf, table tennis and a children's petting farm and yoga studio. Don't forget the spa where experienced masseurs and aestheticians are on hand to deliver treatments. 

Off-site activities organised by the concierge service for both parents and kids includes horse or pony riding, canoeing, horse & carriage rides, tree top adventure and pedalos, golf, tennis-coaching and archery. 

Country Kids is located on the farm, Le Mas Pandit, situated in a protected area of natural beauty under 50 mins from Montpellier. This places much of the South of France at your doorstep, with so much to explore. Narbonne, Beziers and Montpellier are all within an hour's drive and the stunning medieval city of Carcassonne is just under 90 minutes away. 

Dining

From June to mid-September all meals, snacks, and drinks (including alcohol) are included. Outside the high season, the on-site shop is stocked with all you need plus a freezer full of delicious chef-prepared frozen meals to choose from - that makes feeding the family simple! There is a wine cellar full of a wide range of local wines and local bakery makes a daily delivery of pastries for traditional French breakfasts. Complimentary coffees are from the cappuccino machine at the bar with comfy sofas; it opens for early morning coffee at seven am and the fully stocked bar stays open all night for relaxing with a drink after the kids are asleep - close enough to keep an ear out for the baby!
