Child Care | Nanny | in Courchevel, Meribel, La Tania, Le Praz | SnowBugs Nannies


Go on; Have a night off....

When was the last time you had an evening out with your spouse, friends or family? Oh, and that’s without the kids…?

Traditional Savoyard Fondue
At SnowBugs we offer a babysitting service with no commitment to any hours during the day time of your stay. We understand that lots of families and groups of friends visit the Alps to ski together and have children of an age where they’re good skiers themselves and happy to spend a day on the slopes with you. But that doesn’t mean dinner time on chalet night off will be as harmonious… Even the most experienced skiers and boarders will feel tired after a few days out and this can be just too much for those little legs to handle! We can give you a night (or two… or three!) off and whilst you relax with a few glasses of red, Génépi or a beautiful Savoyard meal, we can take care of bed times, stories, light sleepers and over tired-tinies to allow you a real break and top off a brilliant holiday in the Three Valleys.

Just fill in the form on our website here stating you are interested in babysitting or evening hours in the notes and I’ll get back to you with some more information.

Have you booked your SnowBugs Nanny yet?

The season is already in full flow over in Méribel Mottaret and Courchevel 1850! This weekend, on Saturday 14th December, the lifts will be opening in La Tania, Le Praz, Méribel Village and remaining resorts. You can see the full break down on the La Tania website here -, including prices and all the other details you could possibly need on passes and lifts! 

We've been busy booking in lots of SnowBugs for day care and babysitting already this year and even though the season has only just started availability is getting very low. It seems this year will be a very busy one with lots of prepared parents :) If you haven't had a chance to look into this yourself though yet don't panic. IT'S NOT TOO LATE! Below is a summary of how booking availability is looking at the moment....

To make an enquiry for your holiday all you have to do is visit the SnowBugs website here - and complete the short form. We'll be in touch with information on what we can offer your family and get the dates you need for your holiday this year all confirmed so you don't have to compromise anywhere... Just be quick before they get taken!

Looking forward to chatting to you soon :)

November with SnowBugs...

Believe it or not, it’s December! Surely I’m not the only one thinking – where did 2013 go?! It’s now less than a month ‘til Christmas and just a few days until Courchevel and Méribel open their lifts for winter 2013/2014… Let’s just take a moment to catch up on November…

The first thing that’s on everyone’s mind is the absolutely epic snowfall we’ve had already here in the mountains! This year Courchevel opened the Verdons and Saulire lifts for one day only of totally free skiing on 23rd November – thank you Courchevel! :) It was a brilliant (and very busy!) day and I can report back that we are well and truly ready for everyone to arrive! Already there is plenty of powder off-piste and perfectly groomed runs waiting for you across the Three Valleys.

Having such a lot of snow so early is brilliant news and sources say this one will be a fantastic winter; which as you can imagine is having a huge impact on bookings for the season so far. It may only be the beginning of December but we really are getting full! Most of our half term dates have already been taken and off-peak weeks, especially toward the start of the season, are becoming increasingly full. Don’t delay in getting your child care booked; your skiing/boarding time on your winter holiday can’t be compromised with having to miss out to care for the little ones. Let us help you make the most of your time away by completing our enquiry form today here –

In November we welcomed Carol, Claire and Della to the team who will be arriving in December ready to have lots of fun looking after all your little SnowBugs. They are all really excited to return to the Alps and for Claire this will be her first full season in Méribel; as you can imagine we’re literally counting down the days! It’s easy to spot the SnowBugs Nannies; just look out for our colourful SnowBugs hats! We’ll all have our pink and white striped hats (courtesy of Invert Headwear) - Della will have a yellow bobble, Carol a purple, Claire blue and I (Tayla) will have light pink. If you haven’t yet seen all about our lovely new nannies have a scroll down through older blog posts and you’ll find everything there, or visit our website!

SnowBugs has added a few more things to the toy bags this year; we’ve got some tea sets for high tea and cake, lots more bum boards for sledging adventures, a play mat especially for our younger SnowBugs, enough colouring, paints and arts and crafts to re-decorate the chalet and lots more! This is something we’ll be improving upon every year and we’ll keep you up to date with what’s new. As you know SnowBugs don’t use things like iPads or DVDs to entertain the children unless you request this so it’s important for us to have lots of things to do to keep them happy, engaged and distracted from all this technology - but ideally, we’ll be outside having lots of adventures in the snow!

We’re really excited to see you here in The Alps from 7th December and can’t wait to meet all the new and returning SnowBugs for lots more fun! See you soon :)
