Hi i havent checked anything out yet but im thinking of a family holiday in France, i would be looking at flying into Nice or Lyon, somewhere in the South or South East would be nice…
Can anyone recommend a holiday park in that area?June 13, 2012 at 2:57 pm #122886JedtMember
Don’t know about France but Cambrils Park in Spain is supposed to be excellent. It has camping and bungalows etc too and loads of activities for families.
My friend went with her whole family last year (about 25 of them) and they had a blast. She highly recommends it.June 13, 2012 at 4:13 pm #122888Financial CompanionParticipant
La Baume, down near Frejus/ St. Raphael in the south is great, with swimming pools and entertainment. From there you can do daily spins to Monte Carlo, Nice, St. Tropez. We also did a week or so there and then drove around to El Delphin Verde in Spain, it’s not quite as far down as Cambrilis park but ticks all the boxes. Its a few years ago, but Haven used to do all of them.June 13, 2012 at 7:17 pm #122894FabienneMember
There is a chain of campsites (campsites, mobile home rentals and all)
go on that site to check their campsites, facilities and all and names.
Get a quote,
then go onto
with name and all even if all in french it’s the SAME website,
get a quote and ofter it’s cheaper for the same place same dates.
We discovered that by accident.
We went into one on their campsite in Brittany and we had a good time.
Our campsite was a mix of forests and playgrounds and pools. Rustic but nice and kids club and they were really good.
To work in France in a kids club you (all teenagers and young adults who want to do it as summer jobs) get a special qualification called BAFA and it makes all the entertainers quite professionnals even if they’re young and plenty of energy needed when you get plenty of kids in kids club.
Most of the staff in the kids club were kind of bilingual (enough) kids loved it.
Best of luck in your search for the perfect caravan park.

Get the Keycamp brochure – I was looking at one near Paris. It was within reach of Charles De Gauille, Euro Disney and Asterix(spelt something like that – French theme park). They had some lovely places.June 15, 2012 at 5:23 pm #122922

No Fabienne Dh is up to his eyes in work, he "Cant" take anytime off in August, i dont fancy taking the kids out of playschool and school in September! We are running out of time in July so it looks like a Hotel break in Ireland or a few days in the UK for now…. we are looking at going to Boston in November or to Lanazarote for Christmas
