Beautiful beaches, crystal clear seas, a great climate and organised resorts. Greece is a top holiday destination for families. Its unique culture in addition to its high standards of services in five-star hotels and family luxury villas make Greece an ideal summer location for a vacation with children. In Greece, summer is warm and long, it begins in May and lasts until October!
The challenges of a family vacation
While Greece offers the ideal setting for relaxation, a holiday with kids can be stressful. A successful family vacation is one where everyone can rest and enjoy themselves. For adults, holiday means taking a break from work, catching up on some sleep, read some books and try something new. But many parents know, it can be frustrating to pass that picturesque tavern down the road but being unable to visit it because the baby is tired. You may want to enjoy a hot stone massage or have a drink and some adult time but you do not want to leave your children with the resort’s babysitting service. The children’s needs are different. Children can become bored just sitting around the pool but are easily tired and overwhelmed from an action packed holiday.

Hiring a holiday nanny in Greece will help you overcome these family vacation challenges. The holiday nanny can help organising your vacation and keep a watchful eye on your children as you enjoy your time off. With the help of a summer nanny, parents will have the flexibility to see the local sights that they are interested in at an adult pace.
