Toddler Friendly Holidays
We have a real passion for family travel here at Scott Dunn and we think family holidays can and should be a truly magical experience.
We have selected some of our favourite properties for families with little ones where we know you’ll all be in good hands. To ensure a totally stress-free trip with smaller children, we recommend choosing hotels with childcare. We run our own renowned Explorers Kids Clubs in several hotels, meaning you can relax at the beach, enjoy a few hours on the slopes, or have that long overdue game of tennis, knowing your little ones are also having the best time.
At Daios Cove, Costa Navarino and Pine Cliffs, and in Val d’Isère and Courchevel, where our Explorers kids clubs are exclusive to Scott Dunn guests, our Globetrotters childcare for ages 4 months to 2 years is totally free of charge for holidays in 2024.
