What about a caravan in France? We booked through Matthews Holidays and a caravan cost us less than a tent through Keycamp and some of the others.

What about Center parks.

Centreparcs in Holland. We are going to spend a week in one at half term, it will cost less that 600 quid in total, including the channel tunnel crossing

Have just spoken to her and she can't remember off the top of her head and it sounds as if WW3 has broken out in her house lol. She is going to have a look and email a couple of links so i'll post them when I get them.

It would be wroth it to save maybe a couple of grand surely? Half a day getting stuff vaguely under control. Nooneo would expect a show home.

My brother has just built ahotel in the Grek Mountains - about 4 hours drive from Athens. It has the most fabulous scenery.

You can also go to delhi and see the Oracle on the way.

Have a look at booking a gite in France - we have booked for the last 3 years from a website called holidaylets - they simply link you to gites/cottages and you book direct with the owners. We have had some lovely places and prices are very reasonable - certainly on a par with what you would pay to stay on some of the more upmarket campsites and you get all the facilities of home.
