Heading out for a meal at one of the great local restaurants or some drinks with friends .... you need a babysitter to look after your children. Your babysitter will come to you with age appropriate toys, games, and arts for entertainment while you enjoy time out. Our babysitters are hired for a minimum of 3 hours to look after your children for evening bookings. If you wish to have a babysitter over multiple days/nights it is best book in advance so we can organise the same carer during your stay.
Fancy a day skiing child-free? Or perhaps skifield facilities are at capacity. Heading out for a wine tour, a bike ride or the many other fabulous activities that can be enjoyed in the Southen Lakes area while on your stay .... you need a Nanny to look after you children. Our Nannies will come to you while you enjoy an uninterrupted day. Nannies can be booked for full weeks while you enjoy skiing or Apres ski. Pre-booking ensures the same carer throughout your stay. Our Nannies are hired for a minimum of 6 hours during the day.
With your permission, our carers are also equipped to get out and about (this may incur additional charges for some activities. There are endless options available for local activities. We are happy to provide further information based on the ages of your children.
