A new challenge for your rental: welcoming children. How can we ensure that both parents’ and children’s experiences run as smoothly as possible? Here’s our advice!

1. In your home

We don’t always think about it, but can you imagine yourself in the shoes of a 4-year-old when it’s raining outside and you’ve got nothing to do? When we’re grown-ups, we always find something to do, but for them it’s more complicated. So if you want everyone to enjoy themselves, and parents to let off some steam, get ahead of the game!

You can offer a
little chest
filled with treasures for the kids! Parents will be delighted, and that’s not even mentioning the children.

There’s no need to break the bank to fill it, here’s what we suggest:

  • Books for all ages, from Boulinier or Recyclivre
  • A few board games: from flea markets, Vinted, Leboncoin, your children’s games they no longer use…
  • Easy recipes to cook with your parents: you can print out recipes from Marmiton or Aufeminin.
  • DVDs or restricted Netflix or Amazon access (which parents can monitor)


And don’t forget the garden. If the parents don’t want to go out, what could the child be doing in your garden? Don’t hesitate to specify if you have farm animals, a vegetable garden, a swing, anything that might interest parents!

2. Around you

Having what you need in your rental is really important. But now it’s time to thinkoutside the box. What’s interesting for them around you?

You can leave a small notebook, or even better, your welcome booklet.
with all the information you find important.

For example:

  • Child-friendly walks
  • Playgrounds
  • Gardens, zoos…
  • Restaurants offering activities for children

This list will make life easier for parents and will be an added bonus for you when it comes to grading!

If you apply all these little tips, everyone’s vacation will go as smoothly as possible! And you’ll keep your score at the top because you’ve thought of everything for the parents!
