Monkeying around in bali

Monkey forest and Villa Sungai

 

In the heart of a lush nature, in the middle of rice fields, hides an enchanting haven of peace for families. Rocked by the murmurs of the river and the sounds of the jungle, Villa Sungai makes us live a waking dream. In its two luxurious villas, the staff – as discreet as they are smiling – bend over backwards to make you feel at home in Bali. On the island, there is no shortage of excursions: trekking, quad biking, boat or helicopter trips… But if there was only one must-see in Bali, it would be Ubud. Only 40 minutes away, Ubud is home not only to magnificent temples but also to a famous nature reserve, the Monkey Forest, which has more than 600 crab-eating macaques. Not shy at all, these little monkeys invite themselves with pleasure on the souvenir photos… Especially if you bring them sweets!

Parents love: traditional Balinese massages on the villa’s relaxation pavilion, strolling in Bali Bird Park to the rhythm of the songs of more than 1000 species of exotic birds, doing yoga and meditation (like in the film « Eat, Pray, Love »), watching the sunset from the  Tanah Lot islet, surfing, dining alone by the pool…

Children love: the welcome gift (a handcrafted sarong), placing offerings near the temples and sanctuaries scattered around the villa, being invited to a Tea Party, playing hopscotch at the Village School, making kites, mani-pedi like mom, Bubble Maker program for little divers,  spending an afternoon at the  Finn’s Recreation Club and/or the Finn’s Splash Waterpark with its gigantic coloured slides.

 

 

WARMING YOUR HEART IN PARIS

Hotel Baume and Disneyland Paris

 

Paris is an open-air museum… and the scene of many activities for children. On the Left Bank, in the heart of Saint-Germain-des-Prés, Hotel Baume is the ideal starting point to visit the city of Miraculous! This boutique hotel with its typical Parisian charm is only a few beetle’s wings away from the Luxembourg Gardens. On sunny days, this lush garden is a break from the hustle and bustle of Parisian life (with its rides, playgrounds, puppets, remote-controlled boats,…). Of course, there is also the undeniable Eiffel Tower, and just opposite, the Paris Aquarium with its shark ball, the mini-cruises by boat on the Seine, the extraordinary acclimatisation garden (its animal park, roller-coasters for young and old, workshops,…) in the Bois de Boulogne. Do you want to push the magic a little further? So take a One Day Pass  to Disneyland Paris! Mickey and his friends are waiting for you at the foot of the Marne-la-Vallée station. It’s a small world after all…

Parents love: a coffee at Flore, Lipp or Deux Magots, the designer boutiques and antique shops that dot the neighbourhood, the trendy bars and the abundant shows, the sense of taste and the impeccable comfort of the Hotel…  

Children love:  Toofruit organic cosmetics perfumed with peach and apricot, hot chocolate and Meert’s delicacies, having sweet dreams with their new plush toy « Le Petit Baume », call Leeeeeon at the top of your head to approach the peacocks in freedom at the Jardin d’Acclimatation, take a souvenir photo in front of the Iron Lady…
