Why We Love Family Camping Holidays in Brittany


Family holidays are a wonderful idea and sometimes a little more complicated in reality; deciding on a location and ways to spend your time which keep everyone happy can be a difficult task, and it’s probably fair to say that busy parents often find themselves more tired at the end of a week or two with the kids than they did before they left. To avoid this, finding somewhere which caters to everyone’s interests can be a life-saver. A good tactic could be to look for places where the children will be able to entertain one another and/or make friends or attend kids’ clubs, but where there are also activities you’ll all enjoy doing together and can provide a great opportunity for quality family time. Following these criteria, we think family camping holidays in France are a winner. In this article, we look particularly at camping holidays in Brittany and why it may just be the perfect location for your summer family holiday.


Proximity to the UK

The fact that the French region of Brittany is just a short hop across the channel makes travelling with children as close to simple as it comes. Ferries across the channel can take as little as 4.5 hours, and with space to move around, places to eat and shops to browse, it’s much easier to keep children entertained on a ferry than it is on a flight. Travelling this way also means it’s straight forward to take the car, so you can take everything you need without being restricted by luggage allowance, and you have complete freedom to explore the region once you arrive at your destination.

From white sandy beaches, through rocky coves, postcard-worthy ports and pretty villages, the region offers the opportunity to enjoy every type of landscape.
