Welcome to the world of Family Adventure Holidays where we hope that you will find something that really whets your appetite from our selection of great family activity holiday weeks in France. From the spectacular canoe descent down the Ardeche gorge to sunset fishing out of kayaks or sailing on the Med, the world famous Paris Disney resort or the pilgrim walk across the bay of Mont st Michel, these are just a few of the great treats that we will stuff into your families adventure week.
All this is delivered by our friendly and supportive staff who are well trained and qualified but who are also great fun, and who set the right tone of friendly fun but in a safe environment. There is a range of accommodation options (Bunk room, Mobile home, Campsite, Hotel) and a range of food options (half board, full board, all inclusive), so we are sure that you can find a combination of place, programme, accommodation and food that will suit your family’s needs and wishes for a great adventure week.
Sun, Sea, River or City
Our French Adventures are based in Normandy, Ardeche, Paris Disney and Mediterranean Beach and we are sure that you will find something exciting to suit your taste. Our adventure programmes are designed to be flexible so that there are great things that the children and teens can do without their parents, and more adult activities that the grown-ups can do without the children. And then there are activities where the whole family can have fun together! Much in our programmes are highly recommended but nothing is obligatory and you might opt out of some things to do some of the many local options as a family like trips to the market, beaches or one of the many places of historical interest.
Each day is rounded off with fun and games and competitions in the evening so that we keep the fun and adventure going from dawn till dusk. Relatively speaking, we are not huge and expensive like Centre Parks or Club Med and typically we will have between 10 and 20 families each week on each of our adventure centres. The atmosphere then becomes informal and friendly, and the group becomes like one big family where it is easy to mix with and make friends with other families.
