downloadable brochures

Following feedback and requests, we've added 3 downloadable brochures which give further information -a general happykidsholidays one, one for adults, and one for owners.

We've been told by some owners that the whole process of joining us was too long and unwieldy, and therefore offputting, so we've rethought the process, so that we can get the same amount of information, still be sure that everyone is committed to the same aims, but at the same time not be a burden to people.

We've had a couple more requests we couldn't help with yesterday, including one for a place in the centre of a town.

Another request for a property near Disneyland

We've had another enquiry today from someone wanting to take their family to Disneylad Paris. I've had no luck so far finding somewhere, and so would be grateful if anyone had any suggestions???

happykidsholidays is one month old!

It's been less than a month since we launched happykidsholidays and already our website has received over 1000 visitors. We've been talked about and listed on several internet forums, had our details passed around dozens of local authorities and different groups and associations, had our first bookings and we're even branching out across the Atlantic with interest from an association in Canada. And we survived a week with no electricity following the storms in SW France!

It’s been a lot of hard work to get to this stage, with many people helping and offering advice, and being patient when we had teething problems – thank you to all of you, but especially to Colleen at giggleIT who has been encouraging and supportive, and without whom happykidsholidays would never have got off the ground.

I’ve received numerous emails from people in both the UK and France, telling me their stories, and offering their advice. It would obviously be inappropriate of me to publish many of these now, but I’d like this blog to be an interactive space where both holidaymakers, (potential and actual) and property owners can share their experiences and their tips in a way that is beneficial to everyone. For me, this is what happykidsholidays is all about –working together for a positive and happy outcome for everyone..
