For toddlers and older siblings ‘Pagel’ has a magical quality, like an enchanted forest, the five acres of beautiful grounds hide a new adventure around every corner from a huge wooden replica pirate ship and fort, to trains, go-karts and tractors. For parents this means entertaining the brood is a breeze and as a result, relaxation comes easily. When not sneaking off to play pirates, most sit on their private terraces or lounge by the pool happily watching their offspring make new friends. Those with babies tend to gravitate to the specially created shaded play area and kiddie pool. In fact, the huge range of toys and equipment provided (see 'Fast Facts' on the right for more details) is so comprehensive it would be a challenge to find anything missing – Clearly, having three youngsters themselves means Pagel’s English owners, Lara and Mark, have a keen eye for what makes kids tick.
