The house will comfortably sleep fourteen people, configured to accommodate eight adults and older children (mid/late teens up), six children up to mid-teens, plus at least two little ones in cots. It would be physically possible to fit in a couple more small children in cots, but only two cots will be provided at the property. There is plenty of suitable space in the garden for a tent, if extra visitors wanted to camp. Please let us know in advance, a small charge would be made for linen and the extra utilities.
All you need to do is bring yourselves, your clothes and toothbrushes, and pretty much everything else you could need will be available at the house, including everything needed for babies and children. There is a wide selection of books, games, outdoor toys, and sports equipment, as well as two cots available on request, sterilisers, nappy bins, changing mats, baby baths, etc., and all the various beakers, baby plates and cutlery, similar for toddlers, and plenty of spare linen for the cots in case of accidents, as well as a first aid kit and basic medicines in a locked cabinet.
The house is set in approximately 2.5 acres of grounds, with fantastic views over the valley. There is a lovely, 10 x 5 metre saline system swimming pool with Roman steps - so suitable for small children - and a huge terrace surrounding it, alarmed for safety. Beside the pool is a lovely pool-house with a wet-room and summer kitchen. Surrounding two sides of the house is a large decked area with a gas barbeque and an outdoor dining table facing the pool. A pretty garden seat is positioned in the middle of the other elevation, to take advantage of the views. There is also a vast balcony accessed from double doors in each of the two upstairs bedrooms, with gorgeous views over the valley, with a table and four chairs, lovely for early morning coffee or an aperitif in the evening. Between the pool-house and the house is a good-sized lawn, ideal for short tennis, or other games, the equipment for all of which are provided.
There will be a vegetable garden so you can pick whatever's ready to go with your dinner, and a well-stocked herb garden.
The kitchen is fully-fitted and equipped to an excellent standard, so if you enjoy cooking, you will be able to go wild!
In all, it is all designed to make travelling with your children as stress-free and fun as possible.
