Fun Fun in the pool at Camping la Palombière, DordogneFun Fun in the pool at Camping la Palombière, Dordogne

Water water everywhere… Pools, waterparks and lakes are always a big hit with kids of all ages and are often the highlight of family holidays. With that in mind, we’ve worked with partner Canvas Holidays on showcasing the very best sites they have to offer when it comes to having a splashtastic time this summer.

ITALY

Camping Butterfly, Lake Garda
Fabulous for families with young children, this welcoming site has a swimming pool and separate kids’ pool, as well as being just a short stroll from a beach on the southern banks of lovely Lake Garda. You can even explore the local area aboard a lake steamer from Peschiera del Garda.

NETHERLANDS

Camping Duinrell, Wassenaar
A tropical waterpark with indoor and outdoor pools with waterchutes is just one of the factors that make this park in the woodland surroundings of a nature reserve fantastic for all ages, but especially with primary school aged kids. It also has its own (free) themepark, plus pedaloes, nature trails and other facilities galore.

FRANCE

Camping de l’Atlantique, Fouesnant, Brittany
Kids love this site on the French west coast, with its wonderful family atmosphere, its water complex including a children's pool, paddling pool and waterslides, and its direct access to a long, sandy beach.

Camping le Châtelet, St Cast, Brittany
Another top choice for families on the west coast of France, especially those with young kids, this quiet park has direct access to a sandy beach, a lake at its centre, where you can relax and spot wildlife, and a kids’ pool among its water facilities.

Camping le Soleil, Argelès, Languedoc-Roussillon
A favourite site among families for more than 40 years, this enjoys a superb position and direct access to an uncrowded stretch of sandy beach. The centrepiece is the superb tropical pool complex with bar, set amidst flowering trees and shrubs.

Camping la Palombière, Sarlat, Dordogne
In wooded parkland amidst unspoilt countryside, this relaxing site includes two swimming pools, a children's pool, waterslides and a Jacuzzi, and there's river canoeing and beaches right nearby.

Château des Marais, Chambord, Loire Valley
In the grounds of an old manor house, this campsite is particularly suitable for young families. The pool complex includes a covered pool, lagoon pool, waterslides and children’s pool, and the site is also ideally placed for canoe trips down the Loire.

Domaine des Naïades, Port Grimaud,  Côte d’Azur
In the heart of the French Riveria and a good base for exploring Provence, this site has lots both nearby and on-site  – the latter including a children’s swimming pool and a large waterslide.

SPAIN

Camping Park Playa Bara, Tarragona, Costa Dorada
An hour away from Barcelona, this site has direct access to the beach, plus aqua facilities in the form of two swimming pools, a Jacuzzi, a children’s swimming pool and waterslides.
