Toddler Friendly Villas from Freelance Holidays

Mediterranean villa specialist Freelance Holidays is highlighting properties ideal for families with tots and pre-school children, with a week’s stay for four from only £863.

A policy of any-day-arrival, and any-length-of-stay (suggested five nights minimum) means families can mix and match daytime flights for civilised travel times, and travel cots and high chairs are provided on request either free or at a negligible charge. Beds are always made up on arrival and towels are provided too, making packing/unpacking easy.

“There are no hard and fast rules about what makes a property child-friendly,” says managing director Paul Fogg. “Every aspect – inside and out – influences our recommendation. We’ve been selecting villas for decades, and as grandparents we understand what is important!”

On Crete, Villa Maragoudi has a small circular pool only 50cm deep next to and separate from the main pool. Both are salt-water (no chlorine) and are close to the house. This is perfect for an extended family with grandparents because two of the four bedrooms are downstairs and two are on the self-contained first floor complete with its own living room and kitchen as well as shower/wc. While there is a wonderful dining terrace with outdoor as well as indoor kitchen, the village of Armeni is no more than 500m away where, as well as a minimarket and taverna, there’s a sweet shop for the children. A seven night stay in June is £1283 in total, for up to eight people.

The pool at the Finca S’Hort Misser in rural Mallorca is set on an upper gated terrace. Corner steps make for easy entry, and the pool is chlorine-free. Olive and citrus trees offer shady spots for afternoon naps. The farmhouse has been renovated to retain many original features and the country-style kitchen is pretty as well as practical. Three bedrooms sleep up to six. A seven night stay in May starts at £1023 for six people, saving £120.

There’s no pool at either of the two Professore Beach Houses on Sardinia, but with a sandy cove 90 metres from the garden gate, that’s no hardship! Built by a local teacher (hence the name) these adjacent properties offer simple but modern accommodation for four (+1 on a sofa bed) in an idyllic setting shaded by pine trees on the edge of the resort of Cala Liberotto. A week’s hire of either Beach House in June starts at just £863.

Flights and car hire excluded. Availability/prices correct at date of issue.
