Anyone planning a holiday with children has a lot to think about. Not every trip offers the right entertainment for young children. In France there is a rich offer for families with young children – the choice is not so easy.
Family holidays in Provence
Great holidays for parents and children have something entertaining in store for everyone. Provence is a popular destination. Many tour operators offer accommodation that is also suitable for children. Special children’s hotels offer tailor-made services:
- entertainment programmes
- Children’s rooms for the overnight stay
But also beyond that there is much to discover for children’s entertainment. In the mountains of Parc Du Mercantour you can discover the surroundings on a donkey hike. The tour takes you past clear mountain lakes and flowering gentian meadows. The stops in small mountain bays are an adventure in themselves. The excursions are suitable for children from the age of five.
The medieval mountain village of Saint Jalle offers a successful combination of an ancient cultural landscape and interesting children’s programmes. The little ones become magicians and knights in summer programmes – they discover the region’s long history in a playful way. Parents can use their free time to explore the historic buildings of the old town.
Sports holidays in France – a highlight even for the little ones
There are offers for children’s sports camps all over France. Some are only suitable for children – they usually accept children from the age of eight for the camp. Others are designed for the whole family. Against the overwhelming backdrop of the Grand Canyon du Verdon in Provence, there is an extensive range of sports for children aged six and over:
- Swimming in the lake
For families with older children the island of Corsica has a sports camp at the Gold of Sagone in its repertoire. It is best suited for children from the age of 13. Sports activities include cycling, surfing, hiking, football and much more.
Sun, beach and adventure
France is very popular for travelling with children, especially because there are many opportunities to travel in nature. In the summer months, the climate is also well tolerated by small children. The Provence Alpes Côte d’Azur region attracts a particularly large number of visitors every year. The local landscape is breathtakingly beautiful and varied. Because here you are enclosed by the Alps and the endless expanse of the Mediterranean. In addition, Provence also has a lot to offer culturally. Historic old towns, interesting museums and idyllic villages are wonderful holiday destinations.
Beach vacationers are well advised with the island of Corsica. Here, far away from the hustle and bustle of the mainland, you can enjoy lazy days in the sun. The beautiful beaches are also suitable for small children. In the summer months the water is pleasantly warm and the waves are very low. Many beech trees have long, gently sloping beaches where children can play without worries.
Children welcome – enjoy the French lifestyle
It is common in many places for children to be very welcome in restaurants, shops and other leisure activities. There are often special offers for the little ones – play corners, childcare and even guided tours for children are not uncommon.
The trip to France is of course also suitable for young families because of its geographical proximity. The country can be reached within a few hours by car, train or plane. And if you want your trip to be something special, there’s the Eurodisney in Paris for children of all ages – this is where children’s dreams come true!
