2016.17

Silvia is absolutely brilliant. She is kind, helpful, energetic, engaging, competent, trustworthy and extremely fun with an excellent sense of humour. Most importantly she could not be more flexible for us. Nothing is too much trouble or a problem. The children love her and Alex and I think she is lovely. Very professional but incredibly personable too. Thank you so much.

Meribel December 2016


I thought your service has been very, very good. You replied back to my original request very quickly and then dealt swiftly with all my follow-up questions. You managed to find me an experienced nanny at short notice for my stay. Your nanny was great: confident and capable and that immediately put my wife and me at ease. She was happy, positive and punctual every day. She was creative about what to do each day, knew the area, and also worked very well with another nanny that we organised at very short notice during our stay. She also helped us out with some more hours on a couple of days and we really appreciated all of that flexibility and enthusiasm.

Meribel December 2016


Very impressed with the service on all levels. Excellent communication throughout by all and a great nanny in Kerie. The kids enjoyed their day with and my wife and I found Kerie to be professional and interested in the children. I would highly recommend the service Merinannies provided.

3 Valleys January 2017


I did want to extend an outstanding review of Bella's abilities with Wells. She was professional, incredibly punctual and attentive and caring with him. Whenever I returned he was perfectly calm, and he can be quite a handful at times being nearly two. I trusted Bella with Wells and we had a great holiday in St Anton.

St Anton February 2017


I just wanted to say a huge THANK YOU for finding me a babysitter at such late notice for last Saturday night. Clare was FABULOUS and Joshua fell in love with her instantly. I think he barely noticed me walking out the door :) I will certainly be calling on you again next time we are in Chamonix.

Chamonix February 2017


Stevie was absolutely wonderful and I did actually feedback to her directly today. It made such a difference to our holiday knowing we had someone so good and reliable looking after our daughter. Thanks for your help finding her and putting us in touch.

Meribel February 2017


I just wanted to let you know how happy we were with Alix and Annie who nannied for us in St. Anton a couple of weeks ago. They were brilliant and the children clearly loved them. I never expected to feel so confident leaving our 3 month old baby for most of the day, and our toddler was asking for the nannies as soon as he woke up on the second morning! They absolutely made our holiday. Thank you so much!

Henrietta


Thanks for providing Nanny services for my and my wife. Our nanny was the best we have ever had. Our Son Bennett loved spending time with here. We are traveling to Chamonix next and would like to use your services again.

Damon, Austria January 2017


I wanted to give you a full review of our experience with the nanny services while we were there a couple of weeks ago. Our nanny was Clare. She was wonderful. She showed up early both days prepared with activities and supplies to help keep the kids entertained. She got them dressed and took them to play outside and at a playground. She made sure they got fed. She provided us with receipts for everything. The kids really enjoyed her company. Our 5 year old asked if we could ask her to move back to England so that she could be his nanny all the time. Your nanny service made our trip much more relaxing and enjoyable. I appreciate the job you all did. Many thanks!

Callie, CHAMONIX, January 2017


Reanne was just wonderful, she was always on time and I felt so at ease leaving Oscar (only 8 weeks) with her. She really was amazing, thank you. Thank you so much for both of them, they really were great, with both Oscar and Marina. Many thanks.

Sophie, Meribel January 2017


Just a quick one to say thank you so much, we were really pleased with Sarah this week. Orla thought that she was fantastic and Sarah helped make our skiing holiday be great! What a kind and engaging girl. We'll definitely be in touch with you for next year. All the best.

Eloise Meribel April 2017


Patti was wonderful. Very timely, easy to communicate with, and very flexible about hours and plans making her so easy to work with. She was very sweet with our baby and very responsible particularly because our baby was not feeling well so was not the easiest job. We really enjoyed getting to know her. Thank you for arranging it.All the best.

Yonit St Anton March 2017


We thought Gina was great. She did an excellent job of looking after our son - she was very friendly, engaging and professional. We would certainly consider using your service and Gina again..

Courchevel March 2017


Raluca has been nothing short of brilliant with Amelie. Reliable, kind, fun and warm. She very quickly built a trusted bond with our daughter.

Chamonix March 2017


Just a quick email to say that we thought Annie was fantastic; hardworking, organised and enthusiastic. We would not hesitate to book her next Easter if she decides to return to St Anton.

Kate St Anton March 2017


We had a very good experience indeed with Merinannies! Annie was lovely and in fact we offered her a 'job' in her off season if she wanted one, she was that good! We will definitely use your services the next time we are in St Anton or skiing for that matter- you seem to serve several locations. I would highly recommend your company. Thanks again!

Carrie St Anton 2017


We had another really good week in Val Thorens. Once again S... took brilliant care of the 2 girls, allowing us to ski and/or relax in the afternoons whilst she kept them busy. She is a very nice person, and is clearly a very experienced nanny for young kids . She is very organised and proactive, knows when to get the parents some space, and the girls are really fond of her. In short we couldn’t recommend the service highly enough.

Duncan VT December 2016


Reanne was really great. She arrived early and went through all the requirements around the children with myself and my sister in law. She instantly bonded with the boys, they played and happily read them all a story upstairs before bed. I would certainly recommend the service to other families as we were aware it's quite a feat to babysit 5 boys aged between 3-9 years.

Courchevel 2016


I thought Alix was excellent. She was on time, responsible, cheerful, and engaging. The kids really liked her!

St Anton 2016


Just in a few words, Sarah is a wonderful person, so much fun, warm, cheerful and calm, WE ALL LOVED HER....she made our holiday and we will definitely ask for your services again when we return to Megeve soon.

Megeve December 2016


Villy is a good match, thank you for recommending her, we had a great time

Megeve 2016.17


Anna is lovely, we couldn's have asked for a better nanny. The kids really liked her and they had a great time with her.

Megeve 2016


Annie is excellent, the children had fun and we enjoyed our time feeling relaxed that they were in very good hands.

St Anton 2017


Rosie is obviously an experienced baby nanny, she knew what to do and we loved to have her around. Thank you.

Chamonix 2017


Merinannies is an excellent, reliable agency. Replied promptly to emails and answered all my questions to the best of their knowledge.
Would definitely recommend using them!

Anita St Anton 2016


I found Merinannies service very easy and efficient to use, and certainly made our holiday in Samoens more enjoyable.

We were absolutely thrilled with Valerie. She did a fantastic job looking after our three kids under three, and kept them well-entertained and happy the whole time. She did lots of activities with the older ones (drawing, walks outside, play doh etc) and was especially good with my 9 month old who is a bit of a fussy eater and sleeper. Valerie is very friendly and warm and was immediately able to get a good rapport with us and the kids, and she was consistently firm with my toddler so was able to ensure he behaved well!
An excellent job!

Karen/Samoens


Within 10 minutes of my son meeting her, he was saying 'go away Mummy' and just wanted to play with her ! She was obviously very experienced with children and had an amazing ability to find ways of entertaining a 2 year old. She came every day with ideas of what to do, found great places to go in town, was happy to facilitate meet-ups at lunchtime with us and most importantly we felt assured that our son was in a safe pair of hands. She gave us detailed information at the end of each day as to activities/sleep times/food/nappies and we never worried once about our son during our stay. 

Even now back at home, my son still asks some days for 'Heber' ! 
We would definitely use the service again.

Marnie ST ANTON


I can not recommend Valerie highly enough! Valerie was professional, great with Harry and made our holiday very enjoyable.Valerie took care of Harry's needs above and beyond!! If we come back to this resort we would definitely use Merinannies again, you are lucky to have such a lovely person working for you.Many thanks to her for everything.

Karen


I would like to feedback on Roxane’s exeptional babysitting qualities.
She had put us all in ease with her confident and friendly approach towards children. It was first time that I have left my daughter with a babysitter and she could not have make it any easier for me. Her positive and reassuring attitude was second to none. Children have enjoyed the games and crafty activities and were looking forward seeing her again. This wouldn’t have been such a great holidays if it wasn’t for Roxane.

Thank you
Anna Megeve


Minty is superb! Was always on time, cheerful, engaging, with plenty of ideas.

St Anton 2016


I wanted to let you know that we were very happy with Christine, our son really liked her, and she did a great job. We will definitely keep you in mind for next year and recommend to our friends.

Rebecca Megeve Jan 16


We had Heather in St Anton - she was fantastic - very professional, polished and built up great rapport with children v quickly. I would highly recommend Merinannies. 
Thanks
Julia


We had a great holiday in St Anton and thought was Alix was excellent. She helped make our holiday and I would strongly recommend her.  She strikes me as a person who is very capable and a real asset to your business.

Ian St Anton 2016


Jessica was a fantastic nanny. She kept Jacob happy and entertained throughout our stay in Meribel with fun activities like painting, bubbles and balloons. Any worries I had about leaving Jacob in new and strange surroundings disappeared as soon as Jess arrived. Thank you so much for taking such good care of him! We will definitely use Merinannies again for our next ski holiday.

Anna MERIBEL 2016


Rebecca was excellent & I can't recommend her enough as a nanny. She was friendly, had an excellent rapport with the twins & did not need much direction as to what to do with the boys/their routine. She was very professional but still informal & relaxed in her manner. She was able to entertain the boys & keep them occupied & they really enjoyed the activities they did with her. She also took lots of photos of them during the day so we could see what they were up to whilst we were skiing - this was a really nice thing to do. We were so pleased with Rebecca, she's a great nanny & if we come to Meribel next year we won't hesitate to request your services again. 

Thank you for your good service in booking & sorting out childcare. 
Abby


It was clear that our 8 month old daughter bonded with Natalie immediately and given this was the first time we had left our daughter with a non family member, having initially been quite nervous, I instantly felt very relaxed and comfortable as Natalie's warm and caring personality was evident. Natalie looked after our daughter during the day for about a week. She kept her entertained with activities inside and walks outside. Natalie was excellent at working with our routine and our daughter managed naps with ease in Natalie's company. Natalie was also a great help when it came to the weaning process which had been problematic for us. I would not hesitate to recommend Natalie as a nanny. She is extremely caring, organised, reliable - all of the things you would expect from a very competent nanny, but above all she had such warmth of personality and was very engaging and playful with my daughter whose face lit up every time she walked in.

Thank you Merinannies for making this a very positive experience! 
Fiona Megeve 2016


I just wanted to let you know that Sarah was absolutely fantastic. A brilliant nanny who my daughter adored and we were amazed how easily she coped with both children.

Thank you for arranging & please thank Sarah from us again.
Ellie


I just wanted to say H was absolutely AMAZING we were very lucky to have someone as special as her looking after Maximus so thank you very much! 
Look after her she is one in a million

J.C St Anton March 16


Hi Katia,

Clémentine was wonderful. Thank you for finding her for us. We had a great week and lots of flexibility with her. She was very caring and attentive with Chloé and genuinely seemed to like spending time with her.
Thank you again,
Annouchka Chamonix March 2016


We were very happy with Emily, our two boys absolutely loved her and she was very good at keeping them busy and entertained during a very bad week weather wise. I felt relaxed leaving them with her and would highly recommend her.

Many thanks
Camilla


2015.16

Katie was AMAZING! I loved her within minutes of her arriving, she was brilliant with both kids and they warmed to her very quickly. Every morning we would leave at 930 to go skiing and Katie would play with the kids in the chalet and make lots of crafts and ingenious cooking/microwaving of shaped decorations using salt and flour and water. The kids had such a great time with her. Her care and professionalism meant that my husband and I had such a relaxing 6 hrs every day on the mountain, having a vin chaud and generally not having to think about kids! I basically do not want to go on holiday with kids unless merrinannies are around! Everyone had a brilliant time :-) THANK YOU !!!!!

Lauren Chamonix Christmas 2015


Happy happy new year! Your nanny service has been impeccable this year. Both Natalie and Roxanne were extremely professional and left me confident in their abilities. They have a great approach with the kids and listen to the mother very positively.  I've already passed your info to two new friends who might taken your services in the future.

I thank you very much and look forward to working with you again soon.

Jehan Megeve New Year 2016


We had a good week in VT and thanks for your help with that. Sara was excellent with the kids and the arrangements worked very well with no issues of any kind. She is a very nice person . She kept the kids well occupied with things going on in the town and allowed us to relax knowing they were in very safe/mature hands. We would be very happy to recommend Merinannies to other families and if we go back to VT in future we would certainly hope to be able to use her again.

Duncan VAL THORENS Christmas 2015


We absolutely loved Minty. She's a delight. Very punctual. Thorough. Follows direction well. Takes appropriate initiative. Kids love her.
I couldn't be happier. Thank you very much for your services.

Olga ST ANTON Christmas 2015


Nanny service was excellent. Kids got on extremely well with Val, and indeed had no problem waving us off in the mornings! We are hoping that Val will be able to help out again in March when we return. The kids did a lot of arts and crafts and reading and Val took them out for walks and play in the snow on a daily basis.

Patricio Samoens Christmas 2015


We were very happy with the service we received during our stay in Chamonix. You were very efficient at organising the booking - the process was very smooth - and Kayleigh was charming and extremely competent at babysitting the boys.

Clare Chamonix new year 2016


We found Annie extremely competent and were very much at ease with her. Elliott treasures little teddy bear that she got him for Christmas and we appreciate her warmth and care keeping our little boy safe and happy during our vacation.

Val Thorens new year 2016


Happy new year to you too! We had a wonderful break in Meribel and were extremely satisfied with G. She was very professional, experienced and friendly. I especially liked that she debriefed me at the end of each day. We felt very comfortable leaving the children with her and were confident in her abilities. Both children quickly warmed to her and settled well. I would certainly like to use Merinannies again in the future.

Meribel 2016


Silvia was fantastic! We had a house full of loud children and she was so helpful and caring with my baby in particular.  I would highly recommend her .  We cut the trip short by half a day as the snow conditions were not great, but she helped us clean up the house and watch the kids while we were packing.  Will definitely be in touch next year for another Merinannies recommendation!


2015

Hi Katia,

We wanted to thank you for your excellent service booking the lovely Josephine for our recent trip to St Anton.

We had such a fantastic break and were truly blessed with the weather being so sunny - all helping to make Noah's first experience of the mountains a truly happy and positive one! Josephine was very kind, gentle and relaxed and Noah took to her immediately.  There were consequently no tears and he seemed to have a great time with her. She quickly established and worked with his current fascination ( obsession !) with cars and all things transport and took him on many trips on the yellow buses and in the gondola and patiently played toy cars with him when at the lodge!

Josephine was also very understanding and patient with my/our anxiety at leaving Noah with a child carer - not something we are used to - and this really helped me truly relax and be able to enjoy my time on the mountain and have a break.

Josephine was reliable, punctual and extremely flexible and worked around our plans and babysitting needs for the week. Nothing seemed too much trouble.

We will definitely use your service again.
With warm regards,

Sophie, Peter and Noah


Katia

We come to Meribel every year for our annual ski holiday but this was the first time with our new baby. Using Merinannies made me feel really confident that our annual ski trip does not have to come to an end!! We can still enjoy a family holiday and find some time to ski and let our hair down. Thank you.

Louise MERIBEL 2015


Thanks for your help with childcare during our holiday, Kelly was fantastic, our son Felix adored her and had a great time. Thanks for a fantastic service, we'll be back in touch when we come again next year!

Best wishes
Steph MERIBEL 15


Hi Katia,

We were delighted with G, she was friendly, helpful and always prompt. She definitely made our holiday more relaxing and enjoyable!We would happily use her or another nanny from your company again.

Many thanks,
Helena Courchevel


Hi Katia,

Rebecca was a great Nanny and put me completely at ease. My girls loved her. She was very flexible and accomodating and did lots with the children, especially my youngest (2) who was the only child not in ski school. So much so, if/when we come back next year I would love to have
her again...

Best regards
Kate MERIBEL


Both nannies were wonderful as usual!
They were very calm and patient with the kids, they worked well together and always had everything under control. They brought great activities to engage the kids and keep them occupied and managed to juggle all the different needs for 4 young children. Hopefully be in touch next year.

All the best,
Alexis 3 VALLEYS


Olianna our Nanny was lovely, she provided lots of activities for our daughter and took her on outings everyday. She was very professional and friendly and was brilliant with our 23 month year old. We were very sorry to say goodbye as our daughter really enjoyed being with her.
Everything was in order... thank you for a great service!

Jen SAMOENS


Dear Katia,
Josephine was just great in caring about our little treasure. I was really worried because Gabriella is just 7 month old and had only spent her time within the family, but Josephine did a great job. Thanks to her we have managed to enjoy our time on the slopes. She is caring and lovely person. Thank you!
Regards, Margarita, St. Anton


Annie was excellent and we were very happy with her! Very patient and friendly! Thanks for the great service, Katia. We will definitely be contacting you for next year.

Warm regards,
Hiba Megeve 2015


Dear Katia
I'd just like to let you know that it all went to plan in Samoëns and the girls enjoyed seeing Emily again.

We were very happy with everything. The initial contact with you and booking procedure was very smooth and straightforward. We specifically requested Emily as we had used her last year too. She came on time, was very organised, brought games to play with the girls or took them out sledging and playing in the snow. She prepared them a quick lunch and delivered them at Samoëns 1600 (via the gondola) in time to get them dressed and ready for their ski lesson and to hand over to us. We found Emily to be punctual, friendly and had complete trust in her with our children. Her calm and steady personality was just what was needed with 3 excitable girls and they responded to her accordingly.

Thank you for everything and I'm pretty sure we'll be back, and in touch, next year!
Karen Samoens


Kelly is a lovely girl who was very calm and patient with our 2 4 year olds and kept them happily occupied with colouring and craft based activities when they returned to the chalet after ski lessons. She was reliable, flexible and extremely helpful with our slightly tricky drop-off and pick-up from those lessons. We were very pleased with the service, thank you.

Jo, Meribel


Annie was fantastic. Our girls loved her and were happy from the first moment. She made our holiday such a success.

Helen Megeve


We were really impressed with Capucine and having a nanny made such a difference to our holiday. Capucine was really friendly and our children loved going with her everyday. As parents we thought it was great that she was so flexible in terms of timings and arrangements, so we were able to be a little bit spontaneous about what the children would do with her, depending on the weather and their moods. They loved going on a bus ride with her and it was great that she took them on a horse and cart ride. I'd definitely use your nanny service again - you were such a great find for us! One morning when I was out skiing I could see the chalet over the valley and I could see Capucine and the children playing happily in the snow. She had no idea I was watching from the other side of the hill but it was reassuring to see they were genuinely having fun with her, and that she was making such a huge effort to ensure they had a good time. Out of interest, which ski resorts do you cover? We are looking for a ski holiday for next year already but I want to make sure we have a nanny again!

Thanks so much for your help and a huge thank you to the fabulous and unflappable Capucine. I'd highly recommend this service to anyone. Claire L.C


We had a great holiday and Sam was brilliant with Sophie. Sophie had a lovely time going to the park, playing in the snow and meeting up with other children. Sam even managed to get Sophie to eat well and behave nicely in cafes! Was great that Sam was so flexible about where to meet us at the end of the day too- meant more time on the slopes for us.

Would happily recommend the service and use you again. Amanda. St Anton


We had a great time. Nikki was absolutely fabulous. All the kids loved her, she was a lovely person and really good with kids. Nothing but praise for her and the whole service was absolutely amazing. Many thanks for your help.

Edith Chamonix


Couldn't have asked for more. Claire was great!

T.S. Meribel

Hi Katia, I just wanted to give you some positive feedback after Oleana looked after our daughter Isla Dougall in Samoens last week.
Oleana was our first ever nanny/childminder and I was a little apprehensive but she was fantastic from the beginning. Her relaxed, confident approach put me at ease quickly, and she bonded instantly with our 11 month old daughter. We were impressed with the songs and activities she used to keep Isla busy, and by how much fun they seemed to have together. All in all Oleana really helped us to relax and enjoy our trip, and we were sorry to say goodbye to her!

L.D


Thanks for the follow up. Sarah was excellent, always on time and a lovely lady.  

The service was great we will 100% be using it again next year and I have already recommended you to 2 other couples who are skiing later on.

Can’t fault it, very happy.
B G Megeve 2015


Katia, I just wanted to say that Rebecca was fantastic. She was really nice and helpful. My son really enjoyed her company. She was a pleasure. Hope to book her again with you for next year.

Many thanks Mandie Meribel 2015


I really want you to know that Kayla was just amazing with Freddy. In fact to be totally honest no words can describe how comfortable she made us feel in leaving him. I think it is important for you to know that I have NEVER left Freddy with anyone in his whole 13 months of life so this was a huge step for me and one that Kayla made so easy. She not only nurtured and looked after Freddy but she looked after me and my anxieties as well.  She did so many fabulous activities with Freddy, from swimming to painting to play dough.  I truly feel that she cared about him and wasn't just there doing a job. She really is one in a million and I have to say that if she ever wants a job as a full time Nanny in Abu Dhabi with us we would have her in a heartbeat!

I would highly recommend her to any future families and think you are extremely lucky to have such a fabulous Nanny working for you.
Hayley and Jonathan Strong-Stretton


Just a quick note to say thank you!  Daisy was a super nanny! Friendly, committed, resourceful, flexible and accommodating! Huxley had a lovely time with her and still talks about her! He is probably not the easiest child at times but she did a diamond job!

R.H St Anton


We had a great trip to Chamonix thank you. Eliza worked out really well for us. We all found her to be very friendly and easy to get on with. She quickly bonded with the kids and gained our confidence.  She was very flexible with regard to both the timing of hours worked and the tasks that she undertook.  She was always on time and looked for ways that she could help out.  She was very good at staying in touch whilst she had the kids,  for example calling to confirm that she had collected our eldest from ski school and letting us know about any delays on the bus ride home.  She took the initiative in making arrangements with Henry’s ski instructors re. his collection.

We will definitely consider using your service again when we are next in Chamonix.
Best wishes,Clare


I just wanted to let you know that Oliana was outstanding in every way. She was kind, fun and loved by the children. She was organised, in control and loved by the parents. She turned up every morning with activities for the children to do and couldn’t do enough to make our holiday a success. We would have no hesitation in recommending her to any other family and wish her much luck going forward.

Sarah Samoens 2015


We were very pleased with Claire.  She had a good rapport with the kids, seemed confident and experienced and had a positive attitude.  She got them doing activities and took them outside when the weather allowed.  They were very happy being left with her.  Claire was reliable too.  I would thoroughly recommend her and look forward to her coming to us again in March.

Many thanks and Happy New Year.

Alex  Meribel 2015


We are having a fabulous time! The town( St Anton) is great....so much to do! Even when the show hasn't been the best.
Sam has been amazing. Our son loves her and every time we've come back he's been happy and relaxed.
She has also be very accommodating with switching some mornings/afternoons/double days to suit the weather conditions.

Kind regards,
Natalie St Anton 2015


Hi Katia, thankyou for all your help. Sarah was a delight , she was lovely with the children, prompt, caring, professional and fun! Maggie and Evelynne adored her! We may need her again next year.  Thankyou again, and I will be in touch.

Victoria Megeve 2015


We had a fabulous holiday thank you.  Rebecca was great and Mirabelle was very happy spending her days with her.  She was calm and kind with Mirabelle and they got out and about to soft play and sledging etc which I was really pleased about.  It made our holiday not having to worry about Mirabelle and know she was happy and being well looked after - all thanks to Rebecca. Great service and wouldn’t hesitate to use you or Rebecca again.

Firstly, I couldn't recommend Kids in Greece highly enough.

We were heading to Greece for our wedding in July 2014 with our 12 month old son. From the moment I first contacted Katia, I received exceptional service. Communicating with her from Australia was easy as she was always quick to reply to any questions by email plus she gave us the opportunity to Skype our potential nanny Maria before we committed to her, which was great. I also found her rates to be fair and reasonable. We immediately loved our nanny Maria, she was calm and lovely, highly experienced and professional. Thanks to Katia and the ability to meet Maria on Skype, we knew months in advance of our wedding that we had made the right arrangements for the care of our son which was a huge relief. Maria our nanny was also was a mother herself which made us feel reassured that our son would be in very capable hands. We were not disappointed. In fact she exceeded our expectations beyond anything we could have hoped for.

Nothing was ever a problem for Maria, she immediately became part of the family and blended in seamlessly. She was honest and her integrity unquestionable. All our friends warmed to her straight away and were also happy for their children to be looked after by her. We continue to miss our beloved Maria and her warmth, charm and the loving and playful way she cared for our son.  Katia found us the perfect match with Maria and I would not hesitate using Kids in Greece if you would like to make your holiday a relaxing and memorable one.

All the best,
Diana


Hi Katia,
I just wanted to drop you a line to say how fantastic we found your service. From initial contact and communication with you through to our fantastic nanny Sam. We thought Sam was tremendous, she made us feel as ease straight away and most importantly was wonderful with our daughter Evie. Nothing was too much for Sam and she obviously loves what she does.  It meant I could really enjoy skiing and have a break. I would most definitely recommend Merinannies.
Thanks again,
Polly (Miles and Evie)!


We are just home from a fantastic week in St Anton. Conditions were great for skiing and we were absolutely delighted with Joshua's nanny Daisy. She was fabulous in every way, from building rapport with ourselves and Joshua very quickly to being very professional, punctual, mature, flexible and kind. We felt really happy to leave our 17 week old baby in her capable hands which meant that we could really enjoy the skiing without worrying about our son.
We would highly recommend Daisy to others. The process was very easy and thank you Katia for your prompt replies to all our e mails and for making this possible at quite short notice.
Thanks and best wishes
Joanna Firth , St Anton


Greg and I would like to say a special thank you and a thank you to both our nannies last week! They were fantastic! They were really really lovely, had a great work ethic, were very flexible to accommodate our hours and routines. They also were incredibly helpful and whats important the kids loved them and they made us all feel happy and comfortable leaving our little ones with them. We could not have asked for better nannies.
Please let us know if you will require any references in the future and we will be happy to provide glorious reports.
Many thanks again for all the organisation. We will be in touch soon to organise next season's skiing and hope you will be able to assist again.
Kind regards and all the best,
Elena and Greg (Meribel)


Just wanted to drop you a line to say how well things worked out with Emily.
It was the first time I had left Violet apart from with my parents for a few hours and I needn't have worried at all! Emily did a fantastic job and we were really happy with her .
Kind regards

Samoens 2014


Thank you so much for arranging Sammi and Annabel for us. They were absolutely brilliant and worked perfectly for 4 children. My son was the youngest one of the lot and needed a lot of reassurance and comfort whilst my husband and I were away and Sami was always at the ready to give him that. Whilst Annabel was in charge of the activity and play. Both nannies were great and i would recommend your services to anyone.
Many thanks and i will be in touch again.

I just wanted to make sure we got in touch with you to thank you again for your assistance in locating Sheela. She was absolutely fantastic and kept all kids busy and entertained throughout the day, meeting us for lunch, and taking them outside regularly for play. The kids adored her. When we returned from skiing each day, several guests at the chalet commented at how fantastic she was with the children. Thank you once again. I only wish Sheela lived in London!
Best,
Darcy


I would like to express our thanks for the very very pleasant memories we have with Holly in St Anton. She has given us a very safe and fine feeling to nanny our Olivia. It has helped us to make the holiday a very nice one.
We would recommend her and your company to everybody.
Many thanks,
Andreas St Anton


Natalie has been great! Leo and Mia loved spending time with her. She always had something for them to do, painting, play dough or games. Natalie is also a very happy person and easy to get along with.
She has my warmest recommendations.
Karin Megeve


Sarah has been brilliant, thank you for helping us with such a great nanny.
Annabelle Megeve


Hi katia,
We had a wonderful holiday and a big part of that was down to Nicola and Sarah-they were both great with the children and so accommodating...for example, they were happy to bring all four children up the mountain to meet us for sledging and even kind enough to help us down with all of our things on the final day.
We would happily recommend either of them, and your company, to others in the future.
Many thanks for all of your help, and especially to Sarah for coming over to help at such short notice.
I hope the rest of the season goes well.
Kind regards,
Claire SAMOENS


Happy New Year to you too.
Zuzana was absolutely fabulous! She was great with Freya, our youngest and the older children loved her too. She brought toys and games along for all the children, took Freya out (including swimming) and generally just got on with things. She's really friendly, enthusiastic and filled me with confidence from day 1.
I would recommend both Zuzana and Meri Nannies to all my friends. Thank you!
Lisa N St Anton


We are over joyed with Nicola and her skills looking after the children.  Tobias has particularly taken to her and is very happy to go to her and reaches out for her when she arrives.  So we are extremely pleased!
Jess SAMOENS


Happy New Year. Sorry for delay in getting back to you, we had a great holiday thanks and were very pleased with lovely Gallina. She was very mature and handled our clingy 22 month old calmy and professionally. As a result we felt more than happy leaving her in Gallina's care.
Many thanks for finding us such a lovely lady, we will definately be in touch again later this year to book for next December.
Nikki S Courchevel


It's lovely to see smily faces in your photos. Nicola and Sarah did an excellent job this week. Nothing was too much or stressful for both and they seemed to take it all in their stride. I would definitely recommend you if anyone was looking for a nanny. Well done Mary Poppins!!! Lots of love and have a good ski season, hope you can get up the mountains yourself.
Sally Samoens


Katia, We had a wonderful week and would definitely recommend Catherine. She was great with Florence who had never been left with anyone before and each morning when she arrived, Florence was delighted to see her. She took her out for walks and played with her and did an excellent job. All of the grown ups thought she was lovely and very easy to get along with.
Soos's mum and dad we're not skiing and so we're able to observe Catherine with Florence while we were all out skiing and they said she was great. I wouldn't hesitate to rebook or recommend Catherine and although she is young she was very capable and didn't seem at all daunted at being left with a nine month old or for that matter being faced with all of us!!
Thank you again
Mel H B Meribel


We all had a great holiday in St Anton, Daisy our nanny was excellent.
She was always on time and flexible with meeting places and times. I think the whole booking process is good and communication with you is good, emails are replied to very promptly. I will recommend Merrinannies to my friends and we will be using your services in the future.
Thanks again,
Sophie D. STA


All is fantastic! Grace has proven to be a grand success and Gisele is having a wonderful time with her.  Many thanks!
Mandy H. Chamonix


Hi Katia! Just a short message to let you know that Verena is great!!
Thanks for your help in helping us with finding a good nanny in StAnton!! All the best for 2014!!!
Suzanne Verstuurd ST Anton


Thank you so much Busia is lovely and very accommodating .
Girls are well behaved around her .
happy new year .
Malak M CHAMONIX


Klara was absolutely fantastic & I would happily recommend her to anyone.  She was lovely with the children, trustworthy, polite & took the initiative when needed.
Jemima M ST ANTON


Everything went very smoothly with Daisy.  She did a fantastic job with my 2 girls at keeping them entertained and happy.  She took my younger daughter to the wellness centre a few times and was good job with my older daughter too.
Many thanks
Deborah St Anton New year 2014


Johana was an excellent nanny (again) and we will  have no hesitation in re-booking her. Haven’t booked anything yet for next winter but will be in touch when we do.
Andy St Anton 2014      


Simone was great. Professional and punctual and the kids loved her. It was good to be able to head out in the mornings without any worries about leaving Caitlin behind.
Would definitely use you again!
Many thanks

Natasha was great, really good with James and very adaptable.
Karen D - La Tania


Sarah has been fine! She's good with the children and is very polite with the families. Very nice girl and a hard worker!
St Anton & Ischgl


Hi Katia
Kelly did an excellent job, she was very flexible (important as we weren't sure how the ski lessons worked) and great with the kids - a good combination of fun, strict and also making sure that meals/clothes etc were dealt with. I would certainly highly recommend her to another family.
Caroline - St Anton


Hi Katia
I just wanted to thank you for organising a nanny to look after our twins. Rebecca was great, the twins took to her immediately. She brought toys for the twins to play with and took them out each day. She was very flexible towards our requirements, even when we were late off the slopes! I would not hesitate to recommend Rebecca, she was terrific and we were very comfortable to leave the twins in her care.

Kind regards,
Laura - Courchevel


Katia

Kelly looked after our daughter Amélie whilst we were in St Anton and I wanted to let you know that we were very pleased with the service that she provided and we would definitely use you and her again if we find ourselves in the resort in the future.

I wish you luck with your business and we may speak again in the future.

Regards
Simon - St Anton


Just a quick note to say how absolutely fantastic Rachael was on our recent holiday. She took great care of Chloe when she was ill with chicken pox and both of them absolutely loved her. Nothing was too much trouble and she kept them fantastically entertained.
Thanks for introducing us to her.
Claire - Meribel


I would like to let you know how much I though of Simone. She was completely competent, calm and reliable. The children loved her and she worked very hard to make sure they were all happy and engaged. Considering it was a last minute replacement and she had to make a journey she was there on time and enthusiastic every morning. I felt absolutely happy leaving my children in her care. Thank you for all your help with this and I would definately use your agency again for future trips.
Kind regards,
Rhona - Samoens


Dear Katia,

We leave tomorrow but I just wanted to write immediately to thank you very much indeed for finding Johanna for us this last week to look after Octavia. Johanna is the kindest and most gentle, caring girl and who was amazing this week with Octavia. Octavia wasn't used to being left and so was upset to leave us, however, Johanna bridged this gap so beautifully and by the end of the week Octavia truly trusted and became very fond of Johanna. She did a marvellous job of taking her out daily to play on the swings, ride on the bus etc and allowed her to interact with other babies and in so doings he has truly come on. I do hope you will most highly recommend Johanna to other families as she was a brilliant nanny and so polite.

Johanna, once again thank you very much indeed for all of your help this week with Octavia. You were so kind to her and we really appreciated all the photos you sent us. She will miss you. We were very lucky to find you and wish you all the best.

Warmest wishes,

Binkie Peacock - St Anton


Pamela worked very hard with the children in an extremely hectic environment. My children were very fond of her and she spent a lot of time playing imaginative games with them all and making sure they were all happy and involved.
I would definately use your agency again for future trips.

Rhona - Samoens


Simone was really wonderful- Our daughter warmed to her immediately and enjoyed their time together. We felt very happy leaving them together. We will definitely contact you again the next time we ski in that area. If you could let me know which resorts you serve that would be helpful.
Many thanks,
Erin - Courchevel


Both Sian In Megeve and Marie in La Tania were really good with the children and looked confident and in control (which is always a good thing when dealing with 2 year olds). Little Christina is still asking about where Marie is!

Many thanks for providing such great childcare and we will certainly be in touch next year.

Kind Regards

Vanessa - Megeve & La Tania


 The kids took to her straight away and she made each day fun and interesting. She definitely made an impact as now we are home they keep asking about her.

Pamela's experience with children shines through. When we returned the chalet it was always an oasis of calm. This is something we are not used to especially with our youngest son who is somewhat challenging. Pamela managed to work out how best to handle him in a very short space of time and I have even picked up some tips from her on how to proceed with him going forward.

Sharon - Samoens


We had a lovely holiday thank you and Iva was brilliant - it all worked out really well.
Thanks once again for providing a brilliant service - we and the other family were very happy with everything and would thoroughly recommend you and Iva for any future work

Lindsay B - St Anton


I've been meaning to write to you to say how pleased we were with Marie (week of Feb 11th Meribel). She was amazingly capable & sussed our 2 year old boy Bert out in seconds, we basically never gave the child care a 2nd thought which really reflects how fantastic she was. She also emailed us a load of photos which was really a lovely touch.

Thanks
Mel - Meribel


The children loved Marianne.  She was very capable. While she is very softly spoken she has lots of energy and is outgoing when playing with the children.

Cathy - Ischgl


I just wanted to say that Karina was fab again and both boys loved her. Thanks for sorting everything, it was such a relief to know that Harry was going to be in good hands and having fun.
Regards

Leona - Courchevel


Hello Katia,
Rosie was fantastic throughout the week. She always arrived early for our meeting at 1.30 and was friendly, chatty and very accommodating as all the boys..including my husband had a flu like illness and she changed her day off so that she could be with the boys later in the week when they felt better. They went swimming, ten pin bowling and tobogganing aswell as going for lunch on a number of days. Well done Rosie it made a potentially difficult week due to ill health as good a week as possible and my husband and I managed to have some much needed time together skiing  on the slopes of Meribel. Would recommend you and Rosie to any other Mums and Dads.

Many kind regards,
Susan Hill - Meribel


Verena gets immediately involved, whisks the kids off, gets down on their level and talks and plays with them, she asks where their clothes are etc and just gets on with it....brilliant!

 Sam - St Anton


Rebecca cared for my 3 month old son for five mornings. She was a fantastic nanny and I would wholeheartedly recommend her . Over the week she proved to be incredibly competent, patient and kind. She was excellent at soothing him, and found lovely activities to do with him to keep him entertained. I felt very happy to leave such a young baby in such a safe and caring pair of hands.

Thank you.
Rosie - Meribel


Rachel was very warm and friendly and put us at ease when leaving our babies. She always arrived well on time. She was very capable at looking after the babies and came up with fun ideas like finger paints! When we were around she was very easy going and fitted into all our plans. We will use you guys again!

Many thanks
Chris - Meribel


Hi Katia,
We were so happy with Elyse, she was absolutely fantastic. Stella took to her right away and loved the time they spent together. She is clearly very good with children with such a warm caring approach, while ensuring Stella was safe, happy and entertained all day. She texted us updates throughout the day which made us even more comfortable. She made our first babysitter experience so easy (almost too much as it will be so hard to replecate!). Thanks so much for your help and for sending us such a wonderful nanny.

Sincerely,
Heather - Chamonix


I thought Rebecca was absolutely lovely looking after our two girls - she was calm, professional, fun, organised and had a wonderful way with the children. The girls loved spending time with her and told me all about the fun activities they got up to. Other members of the family also commented on how impressed they were with Rebecca. We are so grateful to her as we were able to relax during the holiday, happy that the girls were having a great time.
We were genuinely sad to say goodbye to her.
Thanks again, please make sure you pass on my comments to Rebecca.
Kind regards
Katie McInnes - Meribel


Hi Katia,
We had an amazing time and Kelly was fantastic with the boys, nothing was too much trouble and the boys were very happy. We would definitely use this service in future.
Many thanks Sabrina - St Anton


Rachel was a great nanny for us. Ava my 2 year old absolutely loved her and warmed to her within minutes of meeting her. She was also very good with the boys. She seemed to keep them under control.

I would definitely recommend Rachel to another family and would use merinannies in the future.

Best regards
Melanie - 3 Valleys


Hi Katia,

We were all very happy with Verena. She was easy going, conscientious, and very flexible. The children really liked her. Our friends showed up with a sick kid who was grumpy more than happy for the duration of the week, and Verena just went with the flow. This child definitely affected the dynamic of the group, and I think Verena handled this challenge well. I would definitely use her again. Having her on the mountain with us was amazing. It allowed us to ski together.

Best wishes,

Christina - St Anton


Cherie is wonderful and we are very happy with her.
Sandra - St Anton


Evelyn is a very nice person and absolutely brilliant with the children. Both Mia and Leo loved her. Mia even wanted her to come to Spain with us.
Karin
Megeve Christmas 2012


Hi Katia,

Kelly was excellent and I felt completely confident leaving my son with her. She has loads of experience with kids and babies which put my mind at ease and allowed me to fully enjoy the slopes! Really excellent service - will be using your service if I'm lucky enough to get to the snow again!
Kind regards,
Kirsty Basset - St Anton


Katia,
Victoria has been fantastic from start to finish and helped make both our Christmas break and subsequent weekend work really well for all the family. She is always prompt and we can see from the smile on Charlotte's face that she enjoys it when Victoria comes to look after her. We feel lucky to have her looking after us for the rest of the season and I couldn't recommend her highly enough to other families.

Matt - Megeve


Hi Katia
We had a great holiday, thank you. Pamela was a lovely girl, very sweet and gentle. She always arrived on time and seemed responsible and mature.
Your service meant that my husband and I were able to ski together rather than taking it in turns while one of us looked after Charlie. I have never been comfortable with leaving my children in a strange crèche so having a one to one nanny was perfect for us.
I liked the facility on your website where we could see a picture and read the nannies blogs, somehow this gave a sense of familiarity prior to the trip. We shall definitely be in touch for our next skiing trip. I hope the season has got off to a good start for you.

Best wishes
Ginny- Samoens


Hi Katia

I found Victoria very competent with the children indeed. She made us able to fully relax and enjoy the holiday.
 
Kind regards
Marissa - Courchevel


Hi Katia

Johanna was a first class nanny. Very friendly, reliable and polite. She went out of her way to organise activities for the kids who thoroughly enjoyed her company.

Andy - St Anton


Dear Katia,

I was planning on writing you a mail to give you some feedback.

I must say, I wasn't really relaxed with the idea I had to leave my kids with someone I had never met... but Rachel was such a great girl, it was just fantastic! She did an extremely good job and it was very very nice to have her take care of our kids.

They loved her immediately and they got along very well even with the language barrier.

We have a fantastic holiday thanks to her and your organisation and I have already recommended you to several of our friends and family who come to Courchevel and need a nanny.

Thank you for your help in all of this. You made our holidays troublefree

We wish you a fantastic New Year and hope we will work together in the future.

Kind regards,

Barbara - Courchevel


Katia

A huge thank you for letting us have Nicole for the week and for all your efforts and efficiency.
Her calm and thoughtful manner made it so easy to feel confident leaving our babies with her. It is clear that Nicole has a lot of experience and we are so grateful that we were able to have her to look after the little ones for the week.

I would highly recommend you to anyone and we will definitely be using Merinannies again!

With every good wish
Philip and Bee Russell - Meribel


I wanted to thank you once again for introducing me to Verena. She is a really lovely girl and was absolutely fantastic with Max. He simply enjoyed staying with her and we returned every day to find him laughing and giggling away with her. Not only is she very competent, but she is also gifted with a lot of patience which is imperative with babies. Anyway, she is highly recommendable and I would trust her again with my son any day!

Best regards,
Christina - St Anton


2011-2012

 Hi Katia

We were extremely impressed with Hayley. She was fantastic with the children being calm, confident and fun. She's got a lovely personality so was easy for my parents and ourselves to get along with. She contacted us before we left to arrange to come to our chalet when we arrived which was good (and essential really).
She had some toys which she brought to the chalet which was helpful. I thought your services were very good and having had such a great nanny I would definitely use your services again. Many thanks for organising Hayley for us.
With kind regards
Lorna - St Anton 


 Katia

Thank you, we had a lovely time. I have been very pleased with your service – your flexibility on hours too.

I thought Rachael was lovely – unflappable and warm. Amy was very happy with her and seemed comfortable with her from the first meeting on the Sunday.

Best wishes
Andrea - Meribel

Candice has been great. We have gotten just what have needed. Someone at ski school drop off/pick up; someone who can take one child home earlier than the other; and in Candice's case someone who could help India overcome her fear of the button lift so that she could join ski school with confidence; finally, someone who allowed us to have our first proper après ski that went until mid- night.
So it's working really well. We are really happy with your service. It was the perfect solution to our situation.
Best, Christina
Ps. Candice is very mature. And, we really appreciate it. 


 I have no hesitation in recommending Elizabeth to any kind of child care as her work here with us has always been exemplary. We loved having her around as she is attentive, loving, caring, responsible and very able and willing.
Elizabeth cared for our daughter between the ages of 6 and nine and we can vouch for her reliability, trustworthiness and capability at working extremely hard. I hope you enjoy her as much as we did.
Melanie Eclare and Tom Petherick  


 We found Laura and Sami to be efficient, fun and very good with the children. They had a hard task in the flats with us coming in and out and space being limited. Both very polite and willing. Would highly recommend them and your company. We are already booked in for next year and will contact you nearer the time to book nannies.
Thank you to you all.

Verbier - Jan 2011
Julie has been fantastic with Freddy, our baby and we cannot fault her in anyway...Thanks for all your help. It has been much appreciated.
Yes we had a fabulous time thankyou...Loved Verbier...  


 'Julie recently looked after our 11month old son Freddy everyday for a week whilst we were out skiing Verbier. Julie initially came to meet us at our chalet the day before her employment with us was due to start and she introduced herself to myself and my partner and our son. Julie was professional, came across as warm and caring and listened to all our instructions regarding the care of our son. Over the week it was clear that Freddy was enjoying his time with Julie. She took him out in the snow and to the park everyday and updated us on his day when we met in the afternoons. Me and my partner felt completely comfortable leaving our son with Julie and would not hesitate to use her again in the future or recommend her to other families'.

Meribel - Jan 2011
In one word.....FANTASTIC!!.
Natasha was wonderful, I was really impressed and my children loved her. She had clearly planned out an activity for them to do in the afternoon which they really enjoyed and then they felt very settled with her in the evening. My little girl cried on the way home because she missed Natasha. I felt immediately confident that she knew what she was doing, was great with children and could handle pretty much anything.
I would definately use again and recommend merinannies to everyone!. Will be in touch as we are planning a weekend in courchevel 1850...
Kind Regards
Rosie
