Is there a toddler who doesn’t like pasta? Or an Italian who doesn’t love children? Since the answer to those questions in invariably ‘No’, then Italy is quite possibly THE most child-friendly holiday destination of the lot! Added to that, we’ve handpicked a range of superbly child-friendly villas and apartments from Tuscany, Umbria and Le Marche in the north, to Puglia and Sicily in the South, all with handy baby-friendly nursery kit, tot-friendly toys and games and parent-friendly services to boot! We’d say families are all but guaranteed a great holiday!
Also, let’s not forget the amazing scenery, warm temperatures from Spring well into Autumn and the world-class city day trips that can be had! Florence, Siena, Lucca, Pisa and Rome are all within a few hours’ drive or train ride from many of our most popular family-friendly villas. Some of our villa and apartment clusters even offer English language guides to the most child-friendly ways to enjoy the cities, all written from first-hand experience of the families who run them, often British ex-pats themselves.
Along with child-friendly villas with private pools set in stunning scenery and with handy baby gear and toys, some of our favourite Italian holiday accommodation comes in the form of grand farmhouses transformed into groups of apartments, or clusters of cottages, all sharing brilliant facilities like outdoor play areas, fenced or alarmed pools and sociable spots for parents and kids to make friends and socialise. Some even have childcare or arts and craft sessions and some have restaurants either within a short walk or on site.
For group getaways we have many large villas or clusters such as the trullos in Puglia, where the beaches are endless strips of white sand and the cities are crammed with stunning Baroque architecture. Not to mention the stylish interiors of many of the villas.
Whether you’re a fan of stunning scenery, delicious pasta, hams and cheese or decadent wines the Italian regions of Umbria, Tuscany, Le Marche, Puglia, Sicily and beyond boast all of them and, here on Baby Boltholes, a wide range of child-friendly villas and apartments too!
