Baby-Friendly Boltholes was founded by a new mum who didn’t want to give up on boutique hotel breaks, just because she had a baby in tow. We understand that no one suddenly falls in love with basic fly and flop package holidays just because they become parents. So we have handpicked a selection of stylish escapes from independent villas, to small and friendly family boutique hotels and sophisticated resort holidays in France, Spain, Italy, Greece and even further afield in Morocco, Thailand and the Caribbean.
Baby-Friendly Boltholes approved breaks are not simply baby friendly holidays or toddler-safe breaks, but properly parent-friendly escapes where you will find that nursery kit, play gear and often childcare, come with stylish interiors and family-friendly services from meal delivery to babysitting. So, parents can look forward to enjoy a relaxing family holiday without the stress of packing everything but the kitchen sink, or worrying about disturbing that hard won sleep routine.
Whether your ideal holiday is a classy finca hotel in Ibiza or Mallorca, a hilltop villa in Tuscany, a chic Chalet in the Alps, or a luxury family-friendly resort hotel on Portugal’s Algarve coast, Baby-Friendly Boltholes has the perfect place.
Plus, if you are short on time, the small and friendly Baby Friendly Boltholes team can offer a brilliant ‘match-making service’ and compile a short-list of boutique family holidays that are personalised to your family’s idea of the perfect break.
Browse through our carefully curated collection of baby and toddler friendly holidays abroad to find your unique holiday, first overseas trip as a family and the beginning of some magical family memories!
Our baby friendly holidays abroad are handpicked and reviewed by parents who have experienced them with babies or toddlers in tow. So you can be confident of picking perfect family break. Every cottage, villa or hotel we feature has been carefully selected for its blend of style, luxury and family-friendly facilities. It might be one of our exceptionally well-equipped gites in France, or a cluster of villas with a communal pool or playroom; a stylish resort hotel with crèche and kids club or an independent villa with private pool and tonnes of baby and toddler kit.
Our baby friendly holidays abroad promise style and luxury, but with child-friendly appeal. We aim to select boutique family holidays that provide both stylish spaces and parent-friendly services plus a healthy dose of fun in the form of toys or play facilities. Whether your preference is chic sophistication or authentic charm, you will find them in our carefully curated collection plus baby kit and often indoor and outdoor activities too.
The founders of Baby Friendly Boltholes also understand that, as parents, we often need to rediscover ourselves on holiday too. So our boutique family holidays usually have some form of childcare available too. From a few hours babysitting so you can enjoy an indulgent meal in a sophisticated local restaurant or day-time crèche or kids club, to allow for relaxation on the beach, in the spa or sightseeing.
We also understand that the idea of worrying about what to pack and carrying all the kit kids need can be enough to put parents off even attempting that much needed holiday. All our accommodation listings come with a details ‘Fast Facts’ section that details all the baby-friendly equipment, services, toys and play gear available, so you needn’t pack everything but the kitchen sink! In most cases, the list goes way beyond a cot and highchair and includes bulky essentials like baby baths, bouncer chairs, sterilisers and bed guards, as well as handy extras like night lights, blackout blinds, changing mats and even strollers.
Baby-Friendly Boltholes is run by a family and for families. Our aim is to help parents with young children to enjoy the most relaxing and memorable holidays in hotels, villas. Just by using the BFB website, or with the help of our match-making service, we want to help you find holidays in cottages, villas or hotels that feel as much like the kind of boutique breaks you may previously have enjoyed as a couple as possible. As a family ourselves, we know that these early years can be filled with utterly magical memories, especially when it comes to family holidays. Since our passion for travel matches our love for quality family time, we aim to offer a carefully curated collection of holiday accommodation that combines the two with stylish and luxurious interiors and facilities, plus handy baby kit, kids activities and services. Watch your little one’s paddle in the sea, step on warm sand or marvel at new tastes and sounds and then retreat back to hotel or resort that is comfortable for everyone.
