New on Holiday Tots: family friendly luxury micro holiday resort just 8km from the sandy Mediterranean beaches of Southern FrancePosted by Sachelle, 18th September 2014 at 10:19
This luxury family friendly micro resort offers an intimate family holiday experience in France’s unspoilt Languedoc Roussillon region. There are four gites within the wonderful grounds and it is only 8km from the beaches of Southern France.
Here’s a little info on the resort, how it became and why a family holiday in the autumn could be just the ticket!
A labour of love for charming and friendly French owners Maryse & Yvan who transformed the original stone farmhouse to create a collection of 4 family friendly gîtes each with their own garden or terrace, along with outdoor swimming pools, and spa. Families looking to connect with nature and recharge the batteries will not be disappointed. This family-friendly micro resort provides a nurturing sanctuary, far away from the bustle of everyday life. October is a glorious month to visit; warm sunny days, empty beaches and low season rates compliment the vibrant, autumnal colours, fresh plates of seafood and mushroom infused dishes characteristic of the season.... and the long term forecast for the week of the 18th October is for sun 6 days out of 7!
Hosts Maryse and Yvan (Maryse speaks great English) welcome guests with warm smiles and homemade cake, providing plenty of insights to ensure half term activities can be tailored to the individual needs of each family. iPads and televisions will be happily traded for bike rides to the beach, vineyard tours, boat trips to see how oysters are cultivated or visits to see how olive oil is made. Adventurous kids might be tempted to start the day wake boarding or water skiing before heading on to nearby Bessilles to enjoy some challenging tree climbing. The kids playroom is open for use (supervised by parents) at half term with a selection of books, toys and games.
Historic documents reveal how dinosaurs came to lay their eggs and look after their young on the terroir surrounding Mas de Thau which budding paleontologists will delight in exploring freely. A visit to the dinosaur park just 5 minutes away is included free in all half term bookings.
On the domain there is a lovely outdoor pool, heated in October, a jacuzzi as well as a smaller kid’s pool for little ones to safely splash about in. There is also spa onsite with massage rooms, hammam and sauna.
For older children there is a trampoline and a gaggle of friendly chickens which kids are sure to befriend.
An 8km drive (20 minute cycle) to the pretty harbour town of Meze which has a twice weekly market on Thursday & Sundays as well as a multitude of restaurants and shops, and Bouzigues, famous for its wonderful plump oysters which are in season and just 10km from the beautiful medieval town of Pezenas.
This lovely domain offers a refreshingly wholesome, nurturing environment where kids are encouraged to enjoy outdoor adventures returning with muddy knees and stories to tell. A perfect place to enjoy some quality family time whilst making the most of the half term October rates.
A one week stay in one of their two bedroom gites is from 1500€ (£1250) per week throughout October and November. October half term additions include a visit to the dinosaur park and a free night’s babysitting. The long term forecast for the week of the 18th to 25th is sun 6 days out of 7.
