BFB's Overview.

A holiday here should come with the warning: “You May Find It Difficult to Return to Your Former Life!” After a week of luxury, waking up in the beautiful French countryside, bonding with your babies in the petting farm, pool or play area, and, thanks to the unlimited drop-in creche included in the price, enjoying some child-free time for lounging, swimming, playing tennis, zip-lining, sailing, touring vineyards (there are 2x free activities per guest included in the summer packages) or discovering bustling bistros, its easy to understand why guests flock back year after year!


New owners, Laure and Sylvain Neveu took the reins from the Scher family in 2015 and have since poured their hearts into continuing their dream of making this gorgeous country estate, set amongst vineyards about 20miles from Montpellier, into most parents’, idea of the perfect family holiday retreat. Their experiences with their children show in the range of activities and services on offer, as well as the balance between facilities and independence, and sociability and privacy. There are great spaces, facilities and activities for bonding with the kids, but also an unlimited drop-in - drop out, creche, two complimentary evenings of babysitting, daily housekeeping, meal service, onsite spa and bar, which aims to allow parents the chance to truly relax and reconnect with each other and other adults too.


The exceptionally well thought out package (varies seasonally as below) includes daily buffet breakfasts of delicious, fresh-baked pastries, conserves, local butter and honey; two evening meal deliveries, two sociable communal meals), unlimited complementary creche/kids club, a weekly 'lie-in' creche collection service, two evenings of babysitting, complimentary Wi-Fi and a huge welcome pack with fresh fruit and vegetables, which, when added to the complimentary meals and breakfasts makes for almost a full-board deal. Plus there are also two activities per guest from horse rides and wine-tasting, to canoeing and mountain climbing making the price excellent value for money, especially for larger families.


The luxurious and stylish guest accommodation has been carved out of what was once the old dairy and the former chestnut store and comprises five apartments and a stand-alone two storey house, each with their own private entrance and terrace.


Old Dairy - Apartment Three is a first floor apartment with 3 bedrooms, One double with a king bed and two twin rooms. One of the twin rooms is on a mezzanine level (stair gate on stairs leading up to it). The bathroom has both a shower and bath and it has a good sized open plan lounge/kitchen/dining area. The private terrace has a low table and sofa/chairs at the entrance to the apartment. There are all mod cons from dishwashers, microwaves and washing machines, to flatscreen TVs (SKY), DVD players, Nespresso machines and IPod docks. Like all at Country Kids, early booking is essential.

Along with the aforementioned creche, meals, off-site activities and luxury accommodation, Country Kids provide a huge list of other family friendly extras including a very comprehensive collection of baby and toddler gear (see - grey 'Fast Facts' box for full breakdown), tennis, cycling and daily animal feeding/petting rounds. There's also a comfortable cafe bar with outdoor terrace seating, a large heated swimming pool with luxurious double beds, an onsite deli with home made fresh and frozen meals, toys, books and DVDs and Tractor rides. Plus, Egyptian cotton robes, sheets, towels, L'Occitane toiletries and Nespresso machines in the apartments. Is it any wonder that its often not just the kids who are in tears when home time comes around?

PLEASE NOTE: Country Kids is open seasonally from Easter until end of September.
The “Absolutely Everything Included” summer package have been extended from May Half-Term Holidays until mid-September.

Location Information

Three local activities from a long list ranging from windsurfing, zip lining and canoeing to golf rounds and local vineyard tours are included in the price of a week-long stay and additional sessions are easily arranged. There's a great deal of sightseeing locally from day trips to the bistros, boutiques and cultural attractions of Montpellier to the Mediterranean beaches, Lac de Salagou and pretty local towns, many of which have excellent markets and are great for antiquing. However, most guests find it a struggle to tear themselves away from the beautiful grounds of the estate with its streams, natural and manmade swimming pools and plenty of shady spots for quiet reading or contemplation of the lovely scenery. Laure and Sylvain are a mine of local information and have plenty of recommendations for dining out.

Getting There: Country Kids is based at Le Mas Pandit, situated between the villages of Octon and Brenas in the Herault department (34) in the South of France.

A few words from your host

Bonjour! We are Laure and Sylvain (Farmer Syl) and we will be your hosts during your stay at Country Kids. We live on site with our two young daughters Mila and Emy. We both attained our MBA degrees in tourism and set out on career paths working for large hotel chains.
After the birth of our first daughter we decided to search for a new family focussed lifestyle. One where quality family time would not have to be compromised for the excitement of a demanding job. This is how we ended up at Country Kids. We are looking forward to welcoming you and your family at the heart of our little paradise!
