Family Vacation at Domaine des Etangs

Reconnect with Your Loved Ones in France

Boredom is not a word you hear often at Domaine des Etangs. There’s simply too much to do. Children revel in the freedom of our wide-open spaces, spending hours in the dedicated outdoor play area and frolicking in the pool before turning to more low-key activities like exploring the trunks packed full of costumes and games in our treasure-filled Attic playspace. Families can take a rowboat out on the pond, go horseback riding through the forest, take a picnic into the meadow, or retreat to the wellness center for an afternoon of age-appropriate pampering. With recreation around every corner and abundant scope for imagination, the Domaine is a child’s delight and a parent’s haven.

The Great Outdoors

With a 2,500 acre playground to explore, there’s no shortage of new experiences and entertainment for children on the estate. The dedicated kids’ play area, situated between the Château and the vegetable garden, features three in-ground trampolines, a 50-foot zipline, and a fully equipped jungle gym with swings, climbing structures, and slides. The giant chessboard, perfect for aspiring grandmasters, is a perennially popular feature. Domaine staff can also supervise children when parents need some time off; they’ll take your kids on forest explorations or to pick vegetables in our on-site garden.

Indoor Games

Rainy days and cold weather are something to look forward to when there’s a sprawling Attic full of mysterious trunks and shelves of much-beloved books to explore.

This inviting attic space at the very top of the Château is packed with games, puppets and costumes just waiting to be played with. Table football and billiards round out the fun.

Children are also welcome in the cozy Library, which is well-stocked with kids’ books and comic collections for languorous afternoons of reading.

Family Spa Time

Our Wellness Center welcomes guest of all ages to take some time for pampering and relaxation. Kids can enjoy an animal-inspired body massage that guides them towards calm, or an outdoor (fully clothed) massage in the forest accompanied by the sounds of nature. Parents who wish to share the art of massage with their children can be guided by one of our experienced staff in the techniques of massage for toddlers, learning gestures and movements designed to improve sleep. And, for those kids who love dressing up, manicures and pedicures with bright colors and sparkles are a wonderful way to bond and share a “grown-up” experience.

Family Dining

Dining here has as many permutations as you have preferences. Our chef can cook a private meal in your Farmhouse Cottage, or we will supply the ingredients and let you take the toque in your fully equipped kitchen. The Château dining room can be reserved for private dinners, large or small. And our 2,500 acres of meadows, lawns, and woodland are always open for a fresco dining. We are delighted to prepare everything you need for picnics, barbecues, and every kind of outdoor meal, complete with wines selected for the setting and season.

Just for Parents

And Domaine staff happily take on babysitting duty, entertaining children at a lively afternoon tea while parents enjoy an afternoon nap or a trip to the spa.

Stay Together

At Domaine des Etangs, families of any size will find the ideal arrangement with large suites or the Metairie cottages with one to five bedrooms, living rooms, kitchens and private gardens.
