Choosing a family holiday can be a real joy, but also hard work! With so many countries and types of holiday to choose from, we really are spoiled for choice. Sometimes having too many options can leave us feel daunted. It may even stop us from every making a decision. Where to begin?
Well we think France is a good place to start. France is the world’s number one travel destination, with 89 million visitors each year. This is seven million more visitors than Spain (the second most popular destination) and 12 million more than the USA (the third most popular tourist destination). So, what is it about France that makes it so popular? Any why should you choose France for your family adventure holiday this summer?
1. Natural beauty. Well, Paris is of course a leading attraction in France. But there are many more reasons why so many people travel to France. When it comes to natural beauty, France can rival just about every country on this beautiful planet. There’s the old harbour towns of Normandy, the picture postcard gorges in the Ardeche, South of France, the patchwork fields of the Loire Valley, the enchanting Dordogne Valley, mountain resorts and endless stretches of magnificent coastline…
2. There is history everywhere. France is steeped in history and its etched in every street corner. Visit beautiful Bayeax, for example and see the Bayeax tapestry as well as its old cobbled streets and French charm. On the 90th anniversary of D-Day, visit the D-day Landing beaches and learn more about this monumental time in history at the Arromanches 360 Cinema. Explore the many castles, old villages and towns or the pre-historic cave drawings of Lascaux in the Dordogne region.
3. The food and wine is mouth watering. Everyone knows that French cuisine is some of the best on this earth and every region of France has its own specialities. Visit one of the many boulangeries, see for yourselves how they make Goats Cheese, eat lots and lots of fresh baguettes with the stinkiest cheese you can find in the local towns and sample one of the many enjoyable bottles of local wine you can find for as little as 2 euro’s!
The thought of travelling alone with children as a single parent can often feel daunting and many single parents tell us they feel very anxious about booking a holiday by themselves. Especially for the first time.
We’re told that there are 5 main worries that single parents have. 1. Doing the journey alone, 2. Feeling lonely and bored in the evenings 3. Trying to keep everyone happy & entertained 4. The cost of it all and lastly, 5. Finding an operator that they can have confidence in, ideally that other single parents like & trust.
Our holidays are hugely popular with single parent families because we solve all of these problems and make travelling alone with children an enjoyable experience for all.
Let us explain how:
Problem 1. Doing the journey alone
Solution. Our exclusive single parent overseas family holidays include coach & ferry travel. You will share your coach journey with other like-minded single parent families who will also be with you for the rest of the week. Once you are on the coach, you can read your book and let us worry about getting you there. It’s also an ideal time to start making friends. Click here to find out more about our overseas holidays.
Problem 2. Feeling lonely and bored in the evenings.
Solution. Our single parent holidays are all designed to encourage a `community spirit` and get everyone socialising. By the end of the holiday, you are likely to have made some life-long friends. Evenings are spent dining altogether in your own private marquee or canteen, followed by evening entertainment, organised by our staff. Often, the adults enjoy a glass of wine or two whilst the children go off and play in safe surroundings (often with our staff joining in with games!). Or, everyone joins in on the fun. Either way, there’s plenty going on and neither you or your children will be bored or lonely. Guaranteed.
