Our villa is designed specifically with families in mind. That's because we have 3 young girls and this is our favourite place in the world since they have been babies :-)
Which means it meets your desires for a holiday somewhere beautiful and the needs of your children. We have tried to think of everything; we check the details every holiday by staying there.
For your children there's the fenced play area away from the pool with toys and a playhouse. Of course they will love the Wii and the Android box and make the most of the free WiFi if they are a bit older. There's a fantastic collection of toys which are hand picked from our toy store room for your children - just let us know what they like playing with. They'll also love playing with toys that are different to the ones they have at home. There is a nearby sandy beach with rock pools to one side and a cove of caves waiting to be explored. They can learn to snorkel in the Med and be sure to see fish. Failing that, there is an aquarium with crocodiles and sharks or an evening show of fireworks and music just down the road. There are two seriously brilliant water parks. Some cracking Roman ruins for re-enacting scenes from Gladiator. And, for aspiring Captain Jack Sparrows, there is a full-size pirate ship that sails around the edge of the island stopping for swimming and high jinks.
For the parents there is a beautiful villa with a private pool in a flourishing garden, an outdoor dining area, a BBQ, a Wii, a DVD and book collection, iPod speakers, sharp kitchen knives and Dove crème wash in every bathroom. There is our searingly honest insider guide to the very best places to explore, to eat and to drink, especially those you won't find in the guidebooks. Like our favourite restaurant, known locally as The Chicken Shack, which serves the best (and best value) food on the island in a gravel-floored outhouse where you write your own orders and help yourself to drinks from a giant fridge. There's a lady on standby to come and give you a manicure or pedicure by the pool.
Meanwhile we have babysitters on hand for those evenings when you need grown up time in the shape of a cocktail on the beach. Plus we can provide pick ups and drop offs as needed.
On the practical side we have saved you the cost of an extra bag: we provide cots, high chairs and a big, plug in steriliser. There are toys and the other things you might need. Like one of those plastic steps to help little ones reach the sink and the loo. There are optional stair gates. Blackout blinds in every bedroom; no one wants to be up at dawn. As well as the little things: plastic cutlery and plates, a changing mat and books and DVDs for kids. This is all included in the price.
Our villas are managed by wonderful Rosie who used to be a London nanny. She'll welcome you and ensure you have all you need and is on hand through your holiday to answer any questions you have. She's also there to solve problems. Not that we think you'll have any!


More about us

  1. This is a picture of us a year ago in our holiday villa in Cyprus - Chris and Christine with our three daughters (who are currently all campaigning heavily for a dog ... but we've not caved in yet!)

  2. Chris runs a family friendly holiday business (Villas4kids) and Christine is a journalist and just written her first book with Bloomsbury, which will be on the shelves in September 2018. We both run our own businesses which gives us so much more flexibility to travel and have fun with the kids (girls aged 4, 6 and 8).

  3. Holidays .... we love them! After both spending our childhoods living around the world we love to travel with the girls every moment we can find.
