20 hours optional childcare (maximum 4 children) is included per week and this can be made up whichever way works best for you and your family.

Kids activities, cooking, beading, feeding the animals and arts and crafts, indoor and outdoor games are available during the childcare.
A pre arrival shopping service is included (cost price) from nappies, wipes and milk plus groceries to cover your first few days so that you can make yourselves at home as soon as you arrive. A pre arrival delicious home made meal delivery service is available. Pre order and all the dishes will be at Artagnan on your arrival, home made purees available.
All your beds will be made up with the White Company bed linen, bed guards will be on and all cots in place ready for use.
On the large flat grassy area there are goal posts, balls of all shapes and sizes, a badminton/volleyball net, swings, a slide and a sandpit with buckets and spades.
On the flat courtyard area is a basketball net, table tennis table, boules, toddler pusher, sit-on pedal digger ,go-karts, bike with stabilisers, kids bikes up to 10/11 years, helmets and 2 adult bikes with a detachable child seats.
From a safety perspective the swings, slide and sandpit (under the shade of an oak tree) are entirely separate from the fenced off pool area. The pool is also alarmed.
It goes without saying that these security measures in no way replace parental supervision and surveillance of all children.
0 to 5 years – Soft toys, books, dolls, cars, wooden train set, farmyard animals, puzzles, games and much more. There are also plenty of books and DVD’s for slightly older children (5 – 12 years).
Also in the TV/family room there is an old school desk which is ideal for sitting at and drawing/colouring on. The large (127 cm) LCD TV receives French channels and UK satellite channels including sports and movies.
This room is always cooler inside than outside and a great place for every age group to chill out.Local children’s activities.
A water park with aqua slides, a pony riding centre, pottery classes, an animal park and for the larger children (adults too) a tree top adventure park. White water rafting is available in the Pyrenees ans is great fun for all the larger family members.
