Firstly I apologise if this question has been asked 100 times before but I'm a newbie and really need some up-to-date info and opinions.
We've never been on holiday before but I've been squirreling away money from my student loan and have around £1000 so far to put towards a week away in August (we also need to budget for passports). Because we haven't been away before I'm anxious that the kids (8 and 14yrs) have a really good time in a place that will cater for both age groups. I have looked at Eurocamp, Key Camp, Matthews, Canvas, French Freedom, Siblu, etc and they all look great until I read the reviews on Trip Advisor and find out that they're dirty or plagued with anti-social behaviour.
I'm not a snob (honest) but I don't want to be surrounded by oiks (my partner thinks this is something we will just have to endure on our budget), nor do I want any of us to feel uncomfortable because the accommodation has cooties, or is so tightly packed that I can hear next door snoring (or worse!). I can't do camping because of a stroppy bowel, but don't mind caravans, mobile homes, etc.
Sorry this is a bit long-winded, what I really want to ask is this; are there any nice parcs in France or should I scrape together some more money and just go for a package deal further afield?
