Villa holidays overflow with family friendly advantages. Among them is having access to your own private facilities and the freedom to use them whenever you want. The whole family will be captivated by Villa Zelie. While kids revel in having free reign of the grounds, the villa’s privacy and security will give parents peace of mind. The 20-metre swimming pool at the heart of the villa is sure to be the focus of fun for older kids, and a shallow area to the side is ideal for toddlers and babies. When it’s time to seek shelter from the sun, enjoy some family fun playing board games in the entertainment pavilion, which also has a projector screen. Even watching movies at Villa Zelie is a unique experience.
Kids can join in family-style dining and the chef will be happy to modify the spiciness of dishes to suit their taste buds. Alternatively, you are free to use the kitchen as you would at home or simply let the chef in on “how mum makes it” to keep your brood happy. Zelie’s staff are wonderful with kids and will make them feel very welcome, while full-time babysitters can be organised with advance notice, should mums and dads fancy some kid-free time beyond the villa.
Two additional beds (extra charges apply) can be set up either in the parents’ suites or in one of the guest suites - transforming it into a slumber party dorm. High chairs and baby cots are available, as well as other children’s items, so you can travel without the burden of bulky kids’ equipment (click here to see list of available hire items to request ahead).
When the novelty of exploring the villa grounds wears off, the Canggu neighbourhood offers a great choice of kid-friendly restaurants and family attractions. And then there’s the beach, just a few moments’ walk away. The sea can be pretty wild along the Canggu coast, so be careful to swim only between the yellow flags of the lifeguarded areas. Finns and Potato Head beach clubs are both within a couple of kilometres of Villa Zelie, offering more beachside fun.
