We can help organize and advise on great places to visit or activities to do with children as well as the private hire of magicians and the like for private performances/ birthday parties at your villa.
There are many possibilities with theme parks, water parks, zoos and animal parks, paintballing, Go karting, water sports and horseback riding to name a few.
We have just listed a few places below:
JARDITRAIN – Vaucluse Provence
Jarditrain is a garden railway in the village of Saint Didier between Venasque and Carpentras, 25 minutes north of Gordes.
It is very well done, the detail is impressive, and even if you are not a train buff or a child, you may well enjoy it. Kids will love it and it could distract them for an hour. It is remarkable that it only took him one year to build this. Apart from the 25 trains rolling on 650 metres of track outside, there is an inside too. Here smaller children can play with wooden railway games set up on tables, there is a video showing the making of the railway, and the workshop is here too
BARBEN ZOO – near Salon de Provence
There are many creatures at Barben Zoo, whatever a child is into is likely to be here (except sea creatures). There is even a reptile/snake house.
Next to Barben Zoo is a fine, preserved medieval castle – Chateau de Barben – so this can be a 2-in-one trip. At the top is a place to eat basic zoo food and ice cream, and a sizeable playground which young children love (more than the animals).
MarineLand – Antibes
One of the most established and respected marine shows in Europe including dolphins, orcas and seals. There are various aquariums, a marine museum and a 30M long shark tunnel.
Aqualand - Frejus and Sainte Maxime
Frejus is the largest water park on the Cote d’Azur with over 10000 sqm of water pools. Both have waterslides, wave pools, baby pools and rapids.
