For many children it is back to school this week. The summer holidays have come to an end and now it’s time for many families to get back into the usual daily routine. Returning to school is the start of a new phase; a new pair of shoes, a new teacher and a chance to learn new things or make new friends.
Having spent years in school, September can offer adults the opportunity to make a fresh start and new plans too. If you feel the need to get organised and plan something new, why not consider the options for next year’s summer holiday?
If you are feeling a bit down about the evenings drawing in, then planning next year’s summer holiday can help to lift your spirits. It also gives you time to start saving up for your ideal family holiday; putting aside a sum every month will soon add up and make it easier to afford the cost of travel, accommodation and spending money.
Official figures from 2013 show that the most popular tourist destination in the world was France. With 84.7million visitors, our neighbouring country attracted around 8% of the world’s international travellers. Add to this the fact that 80% of French holiday makers prefer to stay in their own country, it is clear that a hop over the English Channel could offer us the perfect holiday destination.
France is a country of diversity, so no matter what you are looking for in an ideal family holiday, you can find it in France. It includes top ski destinations, Paris, a city that many travellers include on their ‘must see’ list, expansive beaches, world renowned wine regions and 39 UNESCO world heritage sites. You can stay in five star hotels and enjoy fine dining or you can discover a rural escape in the middle of the countryside.
Many families enjoy the freedom of a self-catering mobile home on one of the well-equipped campsites along the West Coast of France. These sites include a variety of facilities including on-site bars and restaurants, heated swimming pools and sports facilities. They are often in close walking distance to local beaches and resorts with plenty on offer to keep everyone in the family happy.
With warm temperatures during spring and autumn and hot sunshine through the summer months, regions such as Vendee and Les Landes have plenty of appeal for holiday makers. If you like the sound of relaxing on the beach, surfing in the waves, dining on freshly caught fish or cycling along designated paths through woodlands, traditional villages and along the coast, then it really is time to start researching holidays in Vendee and Les Landes, so why not start here: www.carisma.co.uk/campsites.html
