These holiday resorts exude French charm and you’ll feel as though you’re on The Truman Show as you wander around neat little houses and manicured lawns. Everything you could possibly want is on tap here and you’re allowed to feel just that little bit smug as you mooch around a centre built for your comfort and entertainment only, on your next holiday.
Each day will bring something new and even better everything to do is all on-site or just around the corner. While each resort has its own particular feel you can expect to find cycle paths, lakes, beaches feet away, even petting zoos in some resorts for the little ones to get up close and personal to our furry friends. Pools are always the centre of attention so you can all stumble out of bed and onto the loungers without stepping too far. Your kids can try their hand at archery, have a whiz around roller-skating parks, or just hang out by the pool with their new friends.
The sun doesn’t always come out to play but that doesn’t have to be a huge problem. If you’re not donning the macs you can choose to let off steam in indoor sports halls, sit back and enjoy the entertainment shows or just take time out in your own little private home from home. You can be as active or as lazy as you like.
Kids’ clubs (extra) will keep everyone happy with a whole host of activities. They’ll love the chance to meet new friends and learn new skills and it will give them a break from feigning interest as you drag them around.
If it’s the slopes you’re after, Pierre Vacance’s expertise extends here as well. Various packages are available and you can book in on any day making it easier to put it in the diary. All apartments have that all important WiFi, resorts are child-friendly, with nursery slopes decorated with cartoon characters and mini ski lifts and when they’re not on their skis a games loans service will keep them occupied.
