Family friendly Greece

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.

The benefits of a local holiday nanny with Kids in Greece


With a local holiday nanny, you do not have to worry about organising a babysitter from the hotel, the summer nanny is available most of the time. Because she is used to working in a varied and changing environment, she is flexible and able to form meaningful bonds with your children. She will guarantee a feeling of safety and comfort. Your children will not be cared for by multiple unfamiliar people as is the case in most resorts creche or kids clubs. Further, the nanny is available when the children need her, you will not be restricted to the opening hours of the Kids club.

Hiring a locally based nanny means that you don't have to travel with your own nanny and do not need to share your holiday villa with her. The local holiday nanny has her own accommodation.

Local knowledge and language skills

The Kids in Greece holiday nanny is locally based but speaks fluent English. Because of her local language and cultural skills, she can help at services such as restaurants, shops and local activities. With the multilingual nanny, your children will get to know a new culture. Exploring a new place with a local nanny is a magical experience. It can take the intimidation away and help improve the social and foreign language skills of your children.

You do not need to search yourself

If your calendar is already jam-packed, you probably don't have time to look for a holiday nanny yourself. You want a nanny who has been trained and screened extra thoroughly. Kids in Greece is the expert in screening and recruiting local applicants who specifically meet your family's holiday needs.

Creating Memories Together

A vacation with a holiday nanny in Greece will result in quality family time. Your family will really enjoy the time together and will be creating new family memories.

An otherworldly planet…a magic door to paradise


Screenshot 1MAY is the time! With carpets of wildflowers, glorious warm weather and uncrowded beaches, Greece is the safest and most charming part of the world if you are travelling with family.
Endless sun bleached beaches, wild rocks scattered in the deep blue sea, whitewashed towns hanging from clifftops, seagulls hovering on top of ferries, volcanic landscapes surrounded by black and red sands, seductive caves, wind sculpted cliffs, endless gorges and waterfalls, stunning stone villages and bridges, old mule paths, the chirp of the crickets, the church bells, the frosty raki glass and the fresh seafood lunches….the list carries on …
This winter has dragged on a tad too long but we are very fortunate to have many loyal clients who trust us with their children for their family holiday year after year. So sit back, relax and enjoy your holiday hands free with
From May to October there are direct flights to many of the bigger and popular islands like Crete, Corfu, Kefalonia and Rhodes and of course Athens and Thessaloniki. June is still a quiet and fresh time to go with family although the July/August heat is dry and school free time so most islands get very busy.
The ferries and flights from Athens and bigger cities are regular so connections are easy on a daily basis.
From the buzz of glittering Mykonos, to the finesse of Corfu, cosmopolitan Santorini and cultural Athens there is something for everyone. This is kid’s paradise and we are part of it.
Booking one of our expert nannies means you can all enjoy the locality, favourite activities, sight- seeing and of course gorgeous food.
Kidsingreece offer childcare in your accommodation in all parts of Greece,and they ship nannies to stay with you too. From a day or evening to a whole week, month or more, we can offer packages to suit every family’s needs.

Swapping the sledge and snowmen for sandcastles & straw hats…



As the season is coming to an end, we would like to thank all our families for using our childcare services and all our nannies for the great job they did. Everyone has worked hard this season, from the resort teams to ensure the snow was in good condition and kept the runs open, the wonderful nannies organising entertainment for all our little clients, and the UK office which was available 24/7! With comments like these we feel very proud for the work we do and the continuity of standards we offer.

“Very impressed with the service on all levels. Excellent communication throughout by all and a great nanny in Kerie. The kids enjoyed their day with her and my wife and I found Kerie to be professional and interested in the children. I would highly recommend the service Merinannies provided."

“We had a very good experience indeed with Merinannies! Annie was lovely and in fact we offered her a 'job' in her off season, she was that good! We will definitely use your services the next time we are in St Anton or skiing for that matter- you seem to serve several locations. I would highly recommend your company.”
