Private chef/meal delivery

From fresh local delicacies to traditional French cuisine, our private chefs are happy to cater for groups in the privacy of your villa, tailoring their expertly crafted menu to suit your party’s tastes. This service, subject to minimum numbers, is ideal for larger groups making it easy to enjoy first class cuisine in the relaxed comfort of your holiday home-from-home. Prices from 40€ per person. Meal delivery is also available at some properties from 35€.



For a special occasion or just a holiday treat, we can arrange a chef to come to your villa to prepare, cook and clear away meals on a weekly or one-off basis. Personable as well as professional, the chefs will liaise with you over the choice of dishes, and present them at the table in so as each meal becomes an experience to truly enhance your holiday.


Childcare in your villa

Treat yourself to a little adult time on holiday, and escape for a few hours while an English-speaking nanny takes care of the kids at the villa. Whether you fancy an evening out sans kids, shopping in peace or a few cultural highlights that would leave little ones underwhelmed, our partners at Silly BillyS can help. From 22€/hr (min 5 hours), plus travel expenses and booking fee.

more experiences 


Simpson Travel activities and experiences are provided by independent local companies which are neither owned nor controlled by Simpson Travel and for whom we act only as an agent. Whilst every effort is made to keep the description of our experiences and activities up to date, the provider may cancel or amend your experience at their discretion for many reasons, including where it considers there may be a risk to your comfort, health or safety. Some excursions/activities (e.g self-drive boat hire, diving etc.) may contain an element of risk or require a good level of physical fitness, and, if in doubt, you should contact us so we can put you in touch directly with the local provider before you decide to confirm your booking. Please also check that you are covered for the activity(ies) in question by your travel insurance policy.

*Protective headgear is required or recommended for some activities, including, though not restricted to, horse riding and cycling. The availability of protective headgear varies from destination to destination and therefore we cannot guarantee that headgear will be provided or will be to the same standard as that which is available in the UK. If you plan to enjoy activities where protective headgear is required or recommended, you may wish to bring own helmets from the UK.

In acting in the capacity of an agent on behalf of the provider, your contract will be with that provider and will be subject to their standard terms and conditions, and it will not form part of your contracted holiday arrangements with us. Any complaint (including any allegation of breach of contract or negligence) should be taken up with the excursion/activity provider directly. We will do our best to assist you but will have no liability in relation to the performance of that contract.
