Because the happiness of the young brings joy to the old, the Alchimist staff at Cheval Blanc understand the need to stage activities to delight the youngest guests of the Maison.

Little amenities for the children: In each room and villa, children will find bathrobes adapted to their size; beach towels in the colors of the Maison are available for young guests; children also have their own pair of flip flops and slippers (sizes 31 to 34); and to lull them to sleep at night, a soft stuffed toy horse in the pink and taupe colors of the Maison, awaits children in their room.

Family Adventure
Embark on an adventurous half-day discovery of St Barts! Start the day with an energetic family breakfast in your villa or privately on the beach of the Maison. At 10 am, depart for a fun and original tour of the island, two passengers per quad, accompanied by a professional. Then head to the port of Gustavia where you board the Yellow Submarine for an adventure of discovery exploring the underwater world of St Barts. Onboard, cold soft drinks and gourmandises have been prepared for your pleasure by our Chef. Back at the Maison, enjoy a delicious seaside lunch at the Case de l'Isle Restaurant and enjoy an afternoon together relaxing on Flamands beach.

Family Snorkeling
Leave the Maison at 2 pm, towards the splendid beach of Colombier where you will discover the marine life of the island in the form of an educational and fun water course created by a professional fully dedicated to you. The program for the afternoon is one of beautiful encounters with turtles, small playful sharks and colourful fishes. After a swim, settle comfortably on the most beautiful beach in St Barts
for a quick snack prepared by Chef Yann Vinsot while your guide tells you about the beauty of the island ...  This activity, ideal for young guests and their parents, is immortalized through film and photos presented on a CD and delivered later to your room.
