Villa holidays are an excellent option for families, and the owners of The Arsana Estate have three young children, so the villa has evolved around their needs. Family-friendly advantages of villa stays include having access to your own private facilities, such as a swimming pool, living space and gardens, and having the freedom to use them whenever you want. Knowing that the kids can run around happily, independently and safely, without you having to worry about other guests, is a real plus – and one that means parents are certain to have a more relaxed holiday too.
As well as offering plenty of space for children to let off steam, including a large flat lawn complete with football goal, The Arsana Estate has a kids’ pool adjoining the main swimming pool; a children’s play area with a trampoline and basketball hoop; three bicycles; extensions to the master suite and one of the guest suites incorporating kids’ sleeping areas; two self-contained TV Rooms with DVD players; Nintendo Wii, and a library of kids’ DVDs. Additionally, there is a dedicated games room with a cupboards full of board games, toys and children’s books. The villa’s fifth bedroom makes a great kids ‘dormitory’ and chill-out room, sleeping up to eight and equipped with electronic games (PS3 and Wii) plus a TV and DVD player.
The Arsana Estate’s team of friendly staff will make your children feel as welcome as adults – whether it’s playing indoor or outdoor games (football, badminton or basketball), escorting them on nature walks within the grounds, or including them as guests at a village ceremony. Having these willing helpers on hand also gives you plenty of flexibility and freedom to do your own exploring beyond the villa.
Although equipped kitchens allow you to prepare meals for fussy eaters or babies with ease, staff will happily to do this for you – just talk through your requirements and meal schedules with the villa manager or chef/cook and they will take care of the rest. Spaghetti in the sunset balé at six? Poolside pancakes for breakfast? No problem.
Neither do you have to worry about packing all that cumbersome kids’ equipment for your stay. Just let us know what you need, and anything we don’t have in-house (villa facilities include baby cots, highchairs, car seats and much more) we can hire on your behalf (click here to see list of available hire items).
