About Us

BabyBreaks was born out of a big frustration that we had as a young family to find great weekend destinations or holiday ideas that are suitable for babies, toddlers and young children.

With a very intense professional life for both parents, we didn’t necessarily have the time to spend endless hours browsing websites to find inspiration about where to go next weekend.

So we came up with the idea to design an informative platform where parents can quickly search by destination, to find the best family-friendly accommodation, restaurants and activities. All of our recommendations are geared towards young children, with the aim of making family travel as stress-free as possible.

We do hope that you find this website as useful as we wanted to be and that you will spread the word to other families so that BabyBreaks will Make other Parents Happy!

Guillaume Thevenot

Guillaume is the founder of BabyBreaks. He is father to a 6 year old daughter Mia and a 10 year old boy Hugo. When he and his wife had their first child, Guillaume noticed there was a gap in the market for parents with young children who like to travel, but didn’t want to spend hours seeking out family friendly accommodation, restaurants and activities. After working for nearly 20 years for several online travel companies such as TripAdvisor, Booking.com and VoyagePrivé, he decided to create his own venture, BabyBreaks to inspire families to travel more, and to make it a stress-free experience. Guillaume has recently travelled to Sardinia, Cornwall, Corsica, Austria and Scotland.
