Any recommendations for self catering holidays during school summer hols? We've used Keycamp and Siblu in the past which worked well for us, but wonder if I'm missing out on other options? And we need to go in school hols this year, so the price is pretty scary!
We have an only child (4yo DD) so ideally somewhere with a good kids club as she gets bored with just our company. We have been to Brittany which we loved and Vendee which didn't really have much to do/see other than on the excellent campsite. But the beaches were wonderful and we had a brilliant, relaxing holiday.
We've always driven in the past (Dover/Calais), but would be open to flying.
I absolutely love France, but also enjoy Italy and it would be nice if there was some local culture/interest and possibly theme parks (although not as important). We're open to other European destinations too.
So, our criteria are: Low cost weekend of 20 July for 2 weeks Not too hot (we're all fair skinned) self catering Kids Club Pool with slides (we've got a waterbaby/adrenaline junkie)
I've got about £400 of airmiles I could use, but I believe they sell you the hols at brochure list price, so I need to weigh up whether we are better booking direct with tour operator if they have offers available.
Quite a few threads on here about apartments in Croatia at low cost, or owners direct houses for rent , but no kids clubs or water slides with those options. For kids club and pools with slides, though a mobile home site prob your best bet, with Eurocamp or similar as you have done before. Driving would keep costs down. Flying to Italy and then mobile home could be an option too depending on price at peak school time. Try the main mobile home operators and see what they have got?
