While a vacation to Normandy is a must for any American history buff, families shouldn’t miss it either. This area of France, just a few hours from Paris, has wide beaches, picturesque half-timbered houses, apple orchards and bike paths to counter the many historical sites you’ll tour. This is a great place to invest in a kid-friendly guide who can make the significance of the battlefields, cemeteries and monuments easier for your children to understand in an age-appropriate way. And be sure to get to the fairytale Mont-Saint-Michel, one of the best day trips in Europe. Families find that Bayeux is a convenient location for exploring, and there are plenty of kid-friendly hotels in the center of the city. It’s also possible to book rental homes, seaside inns or country estates in Normandy for an even more relaxing experience with local flavor.

"Thank you for all of your support and expert tips. Everything went seamlessly, all our activities were wonderful and working with you made all of the planning so easy for me as a working mum. All the activities Melissa chose were tailored to my children's likes and also had a great blend of education and great fun."

–Silva Family Trip

"I couldn't be happier with my experience. Just talking with Cary gave me a baseline foundation to build on - one that I didn't have time to get from reading a guidebook and distilling it. I am not sure how I would have gotten this trip together without her help. I will definitely get in touch before our next trip!"

–Marks Family Trip

"We just returned home and we are all still feeling the glow of the wonderful 2 weeks. Everything went smoothly and the itinerary was well thought out and worked well for our group. I know a lot of thought went into planning it."

–Heckman Family Trip

"It was an amazing trip. I can’t thank you enough for all your help. I loved the itinerary app. It made the trip so easy. You’re truly the reason this trip was perfect."

–MacNeill Family Trip

“I have been blown away with the services you provide. I first contacted Barbara last summer on a recommendation to Ciao Bambino from a friend. I wasn't sure what to expect as I had not used this type of service before. We were beyond impressed with everything Barbara set up for our family.”
