Babies to Toddlers to Teens
Mum’s on holiday too and we realise that parents with babies and small children need special facilities and we have made sure some of our cottages are specially equipped to help your holiday go smoothly and more importantly we provide many baby and toddler items so that you don’t need to bring them. With travel and luggage costs always rising this will save you money. And our in and out any day policy means you can take advantage of cheaper midweek flights.
Specially for babies: As you can see from this list we provide much more than the basics:
TV with Spanish and English language channels.
It is most important to tell us if you need one of our extra child friendly cottages when you book. A small charge is made for some items.
With Safety in Mind: Inside the cottages have stair gates where needed, and electric socket protectors and of course no dangerous chemicals in reach of little hands. Then for meal times plastic cutlery, low tables and chairs. Bunk beds for older children have been re-designed to offer more security. In fact the cottages have been checked out using a rigorous vetting procedure developed by the Child Accident Prevention Trust.
Another important improvement has been the enclosing of some terrace areas in front of the cottages. It now means toddlers have a safe area to play while mum reads a book or cooks dinner and because they have gates, cannot wander off.
Lots of Activities: Outside in the 18,000 sq/m grounds there are lovely gardens and play areas for all ages with swings, slide, and a see-saw . There is also a crazy golf course, football field, and most importantly, a swimming pool. The pool is 12m x 6m and is securely fenced with self closing double locking child-proof gates, and has an extended shallow end of half a meter, with easy access for children.
The pool uses a salt water generator and although the salt is hardly noticeable it creates a “soft” water effect similar to pure rain water which is very nice to bathe in. It also means that a minimum of chemicals have to be added to the pool.
And in case this is not enough for energetic children there is also a games room with full size table tennis and darts. All free to use.
On Site Restaurant: Even on a self-catering holiday mums deserve a rest and our on-site restaurant with a take away service and children’s menu gives them that welcome break from cooking, and any special dietary requirements can normally be catered for. We can also provide a “survival pack” should your flight be arriving after the shops are closed and to help you avoid carrying heavy items.
Friends for life: Many families come back year after year because their children like it so much, and just love making friends with different nationalities. One family this year commented on our questionnaire:
“We feel safe here, children are free to play on the property and we feel safe to leave the door open”
“Very friendly and available to help any time (even teabags when you don’t have them…)
“We’ve thoroughly enjoyed our stay. The location is great, the views are breathtaking. The houses and the way they’re arranged are lovely. It’s like a little village. Very easy to make contact with your neighbours if you want to, but enough private corners if you’d rather not. Will definitely recommend Cantueso to friends and family!”
