Villa childcare

A private nanny or activity specialist is available for each villa, allowing you to sit back and relax in the sunshine while your children, no matter what their age, have fun with an attentive, qualified professional.

Scott Dunn’s luxury villas provide the ultimate in a relaxing family vacation. As well as coming with a private chef and host, each villa has the option of a fully qualified Scott Dunn nanny, ensuring you have a stress free vacation whilst your children are being thoroughly entertained and looked after. Our villas have a dedicated playroom or area full of indoor and outdoor toys, games, books and creative equipment for all ages, meaning you don’t need to bring your own playroom with you. Your nanny will follow your younger children’s routines and can accompany older children on off-site activities such as water park visits, tennis, crazy golf or the beach.

To make your vacation as relaxing as possible, you can choose between two flexible eight hour childcare options, which are aimed at fitting around your children’s routines, and any plans you may have during the day.

Option 1

9am-5pm: These hours ensure that childcare is available throughout the day. Your nanny will plan an engaging and motivating day full of exciting activities and adventures, from sports games in the garden and the pool; to being creative and helping the host prepare the day’s bread or making puppets. Parents can relax under a sun lounger with a book, in the knowledge that their little ones are engaged throughout the day.

Option 2

9:30am-1pm: Once your children have fuelled themselves with a delicious breakfast, your nanny will organize a fun packed morning before you sit down for a family lunch, or your children take an afternoon nap.
3pm-7:30pm: Your nanny will return ready for an afternoon of stimulating and exciting activities from pool games and treasure hunts to cake making during the heat of the day. Bath and dinner time is then made easy, with an extra pair of hands.

On your day of arrival and departure, your nanny is on hand for two hours of childcare. From 4pm to 6pm on the day you arrive, your nanny can help keep children entertained, or give them supper whilst you settle into the villa. And on the day you leave, there is extra help between 9am to 11am whilst you finish packing. If your flights do not allow for this arrangement, four hours in total will be offered on either your arrival or departure day.

We also offer babysitting (payable locally), so if you fancy exploring the surrounding area or eating at a local restaurant on your chef’s night off, you have the freedom to do so.

During your stay your private Scott Dunn will prepare fresh and delicious meals for your children, taking into account any particular tastes or dietary requirements, and even making purées for your youngest.

All of our nannies are fully qualified, highly experienced and have life-saving skills, giving you the peace of mind that your children are in safe and capable hands. Our villas are kitted out with families in mind - stair gates, blackout blinds, baby equipment and cots can be provided on request. You can also ask for nappies and wipes to be purchased in advance so that you have one less thing to worry about.
