Travel Challenge: Family camping in France
Friday 29 June 2012
Each week, we invite three companies to offer us their best deal for specific holiday. Today: a family camping holiday in the Vendée region of western France at the start of the school summer break. Prices are for two adults and two children. Each includes return P&O Dover-Calais ferry crossing with car on Saturday 21 July and a week's tented accommodation...
Includes a tent at Camping La Plage. "This is a great family resort situated close to the beach and featuring indoor and outdoor pools with slides. It gives holidaymakers a taste of the real France," says Andrew Burden of Venue Holidays (01233 629950; venueholidays.co.uk).
Includes a tent at Yelloh! Château la Forêt. "This is a small and relaxed campsite with an authentic French feel. Families will love the swimming pool and waterslide. Nearby, is the popular resort of Les Sables d'Olonne with its long sandy beaches," says Margaret Robertson of Canvas Holidays (0845 268 0827; canvasholidays.co.uk).
Includes a tent at the Campsite Domaine de Beaulieu. "This is a lovely campsite located just a kilometre from the beach and is close to the Puy du Fou theme park, making it ideal for a family break," says William Myles of Vacansoleil (0333 700 50 50; vacansoleil.co.uk).
