Our Ethos

It’s the most wonderful time of the year…..I love Christmas…..and all that is encompasses (minus the weight gain!).

We know how important holidays are, and that time is precious. For us holidays are a time to reconnect as a family, and there’s no better way than playing games that we normally ‘don’t have time for’; and this is the aim of a holiday with Votre Vacances, a holiday where there is time; time for playing games, talking, laughing, and making memories, all in a safe environment.

Here are our Top 5 Games, we don’t normally have time for:

(And they’re perfect for Christmas and Summer holidays!)

1. Uno

We love this classic and simple game- perfect size for packing (!), and is suitable for children from the age of 5- and can quickly turn tactical (/ mean; or is that just my family?!)

2. Newmarket

This classic (gambling!) card game is a must on Boxing Day, and is really easy to pick up, and great for all ages, and works well on holidays if you’re playing with loose change!

3. Charades

The Christmas classic that is perfect for all ages

4. Connect 4

Ok, so this is only a 2 player game, but works really well in a winner stays on style tournament

5. Old Maid

This is one of my all-time favourite card games, and is great introductory game for children – once they master their poker face!

We hope you’ve been inspired, and would love to hear if you have any family favourites.
