Treat your whole family to a fantastic 3 night Easter Weekend holiday on the Opal coast, France. Set in 22 acres of the beautiful French countryside and a stone’s throw from some superb sandy beaches, the Hotel Moulin aux Draps is a wonderful base for a family Easter break Egg-stravaganza! This former 3* Best Western Hotel joins our own group of centres, just 45 minutes from Calais so is really easy for you to get to.
Similar to our popular Family Adventure Holidays offered in Normandy at our Chateau de la Baudonniere, and at La Grand Ferme, our beautiful Moulin aux draps hotel offers the same family adventures but this time from the luxury of a gorgeous hotel on the Opal Coast. For the first time, we are opening for organised family fun over Easter weekend and for 2 weeks in the summer holidays, before we return to normality when the Moulin aux Draps runs as a 'hotel'.
High-energy highlights include an afternoon of sand-yachting on the beach at Boulogne-sur-Mer, where just a few minutes’ instruction will have those aged 8 to 88 sailing along the sands in no time. Under 8s can take a look in Nausicaa - the French National Sea Experience Centre, home to a wide range of exhibits including a stunning living reef, sea-lion pool and tropical lagoon with sharks.
Families are also invited to combine brainpower and design remote-control cars before putting them to the test in a dramatic final race. Other activities include catapult-making, assault course, Easter cookery and egg-hunting, plus evening games and family disco! Not forgetting some spa treatments thrown in completely free for those not wanting to take part in the Grand Prix theme. See the full Easter programme here!
We have various accommodation options – interconnecting (family) rooms, doubles, twins, singles, dorms, disabled and pet-friendly rooms. Our English-speaking manager Francois and his small, friendly team will go out of their way to make you feel comfortable and at home. After all the adventures of the day you can look forward to relaxing in our restaurant where meals and wine are included, and afterwards watching the sun go down from our stunning terrace. This really is an Easter holiday for the entire family!
This is a self-drive holiday, suitable for families of all ages, from tiny tots through to Great-Grandparents.
