Memories made together last a lifetime

It's that time of the year when wanderlust kicks in and we need something exciting to look forward to- a holiday. But where to go? There is so much choice and such a long wish list from the kids (and the parents!) These don't often match up. How do you find a holiday that the whole family will enjoy, one without any compromises? Let us give you some ideas...

1. Ardèche Adventure, South of France

The Ardèche region is truly spectacular, with its famous limestone gorges, picturesque ancient villages, beautiful weather, rolling hills and forests. Our Ardèche Adventure Family holiday is located on the outskirts of the pretty town of Ruoms, ideally positioned between two rivers, with access to a sandy beach area as well as an onsite swimming pool with cafe/bar. Our holiday here is specifically for families with children aged 7+ and includes an action packed programme of activities delivered by our onsite UK instructors, including a two day descent of the Ardeche River by open canoe, climbing, abseiling, raft building, caving and kayaking to name but a few of the activities on offer. Accommodation is in a family tented village, all set out in a horseshoe shape with a central marquee for dining and socialising. Each family has up to two tents, both of which are standing height with proper beds. You can choose from a self-drive option or one of our popular coach holidays.

Self drive prices start from just £329 per child and £369 per adult. This is all inclusive of meals, accommodation and a full programme of activities.
