BFB's Overview.

Archaeologists may once have found ancient dinosaur eggs at Mas de Thau but in today's incarnation, as a stylish and luxurious cottage cluster aimed at families, it shares little with it prehistoric origins but a wildly beautiful setting and a passion for nurturing little ones, thanks to a creche and kids club, both of which are included in the holiday price.

This elegant former winery has been treated to a sophisticated renovation before opening in July 2014 as luxurious country estate, just a few miles from the coast, with a focus on family rejuvenation. Holidays here have the whole package* from a gourmet family ready meal placed in the fridge awaiting guests arrival, to fully inclusive creche and kids club to give parents some relaxation, and group activities for family bonding time too. The magic formula begins with that arrival meal, then fresh local bread and pastries delivered to the cottage on the first morning and every morning after. After that, there's a daily trip to the petting farm and playmate-making in the kids club or creche for mini guests, whilst parents wind down from their busy lives with a massage or some me-time by the pool. Pre-bookable activities are available each week allowing for families to bond over water skiing (from 3yrs), water rafting (from 6yrs) or a trip to the nearby dinosaur park, as well as simply enjoying the estate, the pool and the local area.

Self-catering for softies best-describes Mas de Thau's catering options since, along with the first evening's meal, three more in high season, and daily breakfasts, a welcome pack is provided with enough goodies to avoid a big arrival shop and there's a communal meal with fellow guests each Sunday. Daily maid service keeps household chores to a minimum, whilst a wine tasting evening in the onsite bar and a night's babysitting included with every week-long stay, ensures parents have plenty of time to regroup and rejuvenate, whilst also enjoying time with the kids too. (*Please note inclusions depend on the month of stay please refer to the pricing notes below to check what would be included for your stay).
