With roughly 200 million international visitors per year, France is a leading destination for holiday-goers. In fact, in 2016 travel and tourism came to a value of 198.3 billion euros in the country!
So, France is clearly the destination of choice for people of all ages. And if you’re traveling as a family, it’s a great holiday spot for mums, dads and children. Here’s why…
France for Mums
If you’re a bit of a culture-vulture, France is home to plenty of museums and galleries, attractions, historic monuments and natural areas for mums to enjoy.
Visit the natural history museum, which is perfect for your entire family, climb the iconic Eiffel Tower or admire the exhibitions at the Louvre. For sun-worshippers, head to the Côte d’Azur, also known as the French Riviera, for views of the stunning Mediterranean Sea and white sandy beaches. You can also do a bit of people spotting and catch the rich and famous in their lavish villas and luxurious yachts!
France for Dads
Skiing in the French Alps could be a great way to keep the whole family active on holiday. With plenty of resorts available to choose from, you can also try your hand at ice skating, sledging, snow shoeing and mushing.
Whether you’re experienced or a beginner on the slopes, you can find group or private lessons available, which even cater for children from four years old.
For a more relaxed day off-piste, the French Alps and Pyrenees are prime walking areas and there are indoor swimming pools available too. Or, you could sit in front of a roaring fire with a hot chocolate of course.
If you’re a dad who loves a bit of adventure, skiing is a great choice for a family holiday and has something for everyone!
France for Kids
A camping holiday in France could be the ideal way to keep your kids entertained on holiday. With luxurious mobile holiday homes available at Eurocamp’s holiday parcs, your children can get the best of kid’s clubs, water parks and activities like zip wires and waterslides right on your doorstep.
In the meantime, you can relax in the spas, the gyms or restaurants on-site, or explore some of the nearby shops. Plus, France’s most iconic landmarks and best restaurants are all conveniently close to your accommodation. So, you can get the most out of your holiday by seeing the best sights and staying in complete comfort, whilst keeping the kids happy!
If you’re looking for the perfect destination for your next family holiday, head to France. There’s something for everyone when you choose this country for your summer break and you’ll want to come back time and time again!
