The Camargue Regional Natural Park is one of the most natural and maintained areas in southern France. The parched regions, the ponds where pink flamingos fly, the fine sandy beaches lapped by the Mediterranean, the reeds gently crushed by Camargue horses and ebony bulls… Just thinking about it, the Camargue rests and soothes. It is in one of its most representative towns, Le Grau du Roi, that the Le Vidourle holiday village is located.

This club where you can spend your family holidays is shaped like the white houses of the Camargue. Bath in authenticity guaranteed! There are plenty of accommodation options and the village has many fantastic leisure facilities for children. Heated swimming pool, paddling pool, solarium, various sports fields, ping-pong tables, themes, workshops and activities: it’s impossible to get bored! Of course, don’t miss a walk on the folkloric port of Grau-du-Roi and a sunbath at Espiguette.

The surrounding area offers fantastic opportunities for getaways between nature, culture and history. As a family, enjoy the sensations of water sports, explore the salt marshes on horseback or on foot, cycle along the sea, tour the legendary ramparts of Aigues-Mortes (and bite into its famous orange blossom fougasse ). Then, stroll through Saintes-Maries-de-la-Mer, the captivating homeland of the gypsies, discover the incredible know-how of the manadiers, observe the endemic bird species. Finally, visit the arenas of Arles and Nîmes or the village of Loupian to introduce your children to Roman splendor.

Not only that, but Auvergne can be proud of its turquoise lake and pond necklace (Vieure, Aydat, Bouchet, Lastioulles), amusement parks (Vulcania, Paléopolis, PAL, Lemptégy), castles (Murol or La Batisse), and traditional villages (Besse, Besse-en-Chandesse, and Saint Anastaise). Not to mention its culinary and rustic culture. What is the conclusion? Auvergne has a lot to offer.

Your entire tribe will be able to discover the joys of lake activities, the thrills in the bubbling waters of the Sioules and Allier Gorges, hikes between craters and forests and even experience horseback riding.

So, what could be better than a holiday village located in the heart of the Auvergne Volcanoes Natural Park? At the foot of Puy de Sancy, the SuperBesse Le Chambourguet offers a breathtaking panorama of the mountains.

Ardèche is one of those French regions known for its genuineness. This stunning and sunny region is distinguished by a string of charming tiny picturesque villages surrounded by castles and spectacular scenery. It’s an ideal location for a family holiday filled with outdoor activities and historical walks. Hikes in the mountains, cycle paths along historic railway lines, and water sports at the bottom of stunning gorges are all available in a kid-friendly version.

In terms of history, the villages of Les Vans, Thines, Naves, Alba, Aubenas, Labeaume, Balazuc, and Antragues take the lead from Antiquity to the Middle Ages. Did you know that you can even bring your tribe to the very gourmet Palais des Bonbons et du Nougat in Montélimar, on a trip back in time aboard the little Train of the Ardèche or on a wellness day at the springs of Vals-les-bains ? But the unmissable part of a stay in Ardèche is of course the famous Grotte Chauvet du Pont d’Arc. Listed as a UNESCO World Heritage Site, it will delight little speleologists in the making!

For accommodation, opt for the Casteljau holiday village “Lou Castel”, located in a magnificent 13th century manor house. Many tourist outings are organized every day, to the great pleasure of young and old. For children in particular: themed weeks, creative workshops, parties. If you want to spend time within the castle grounds, without wandering around too much, no problem. The large swimming pool and the immense park will keep you busy for a few hours.

Is it impossible to choose between the sea and the mountains? Because you want to please everyone or because you like everything? So go to Corsica! The Isle of Beauty is without a doubt the most diverse location for a family vacation. Clear, fresh water can be found in natural swimming pools, basins, and lakes. While the pine forest blankets the country, the Mediterranean reveals its most gorgeous face.

The hotel Belambra Propriano Arena Bianca is located in Southern Corsica. The unbeatable combination of crystal clear water and fragrant scrub. You are the fortunate host of a lovely beach and a breathtaking view of Propriano. Allow yourself to be enchanted by the Corsican charm and uniqueness in these exquisite surroundings. Relax, enjoy a good Patrimonio wine. Your children are in good hands: leisure activities, discovery outings, creative workshops and games are offered to them all day long. Outside the hotel, discover the infinite range of hikes, water activities (diving and canyoning in particular), boat routes, quasi-Polynesian beaches, megalithic sites or small towns of character. Want originality and animals: book a donkey or horse ride.

As for the village of Propriano itself, it enjoys an exceptional location halfway between Bonifacio the imperial city and Ajaccio the capital. Its town center is pleasant, its captivating little port and its host of restaurants will delight young (and old) lovers of cheese and charcuterie. Propriano is also an ideal starting point for exploring the Gulf of Valinco and the Sanguinaires Islands. Among the authentic Corsican villages nearby, don’t miss Olmeto and Sartène, “the most Corsican of Corsican towns”.

When it comes to hiking, take on the Campomoro trails and its Genovese tower, the Mare a Mare park and Alta Rocca with your family. Also nearby, the beaches of Palombaggia, Tamaricciu and Rondinara need no introduction. The latter is also the most family-friendly thanks to its lagoon which allows a very slow descent into the water. Even closer, lay down your towel in the small cove of Mancinu, the white sand beach Arena Bianca or the bay of Portigliolo. On site: canoe, buoy, small boat and windsurfing. Which of these boats will delight your children the most?
