Four Seasons, Provence
The South of France has long been considered a chic getaway, famed for its ambient climate and stunning scenery. Four Seasons Resort Provence at Terre Blanche provides a luxurious oasis, set amidst lush Provençal hillsides, yet just 30 minutes from the Côte d’Azur.
Here, the brand-new complimentary Kids For All Seasons programme is available in the summer months and school holidays for children aged two to 12. There’s a distinct Provençal feel to the children’s activities here: ceramic tile-making, lavender- and rosemary-picking tours and pétanque lessons. Children can also plunge into the new outdoor splash pool, hone their serve at the junior tennis programme, or visit the playroom, stocked with everything from Lego to Wii.
Take a trip en famille to the fragrant hilltop medieval villages nearby, where you can learn about perfume-making in the famous Fragonard factory in Grasse, or take in some artistic culture – the museums of Picasso, Renoir, Matisse and Chagall are all within an hour’s drive. For people-watching and shops, you can’t beat Cannes, where you can stroll the famous palm tree-lined Croisette, ice cream in hand, and pretend you’re a famous movie star.
From £489 per night for a family of four.
