Thanks Monica.
That site looks in a great location but way too busy for us.
The caravans look like they are packed in like sardines.
Thanks for the link though.

Any links for nice places to stay?
Holiday parks or villa's?

Agree with earlier poster, Ile de Re gorgeous, great for cycling, fab food, family friendly, great shops - has it all for
short haul

Another vote for south west france. Been to Hourtin for the day. Lovely. As is where we have stayed regularly, cycling with dd and it has a lake and beach - Messanges.

I've been to Hourtin its lovely but would recommend Ares as you can cycle through the forest to the Atlantic coast or even to cap ferret. Wonderful place and 45 mins for Bordeux if the weather isn't great or to break up with a bit of culture.

Also from Ares you can travel round all the little villages and if you time it right they have fab festivals each year

I'm just off to book again! We catch the ferry from Portsmouth to Santander and travel up

Have heard if ole dr re bit was trying to find somewhere further south so cap and ferret will be investigated! Thank you!

Apart from the fact it's north of Hossegor and the Cap! I assume you know Ile de re?

Thanks for those ideas! Anyone been to or heard of Hourtin?

Lake Hossegor on the Atlantic Coast is lovely, or Cap Ferret.

Neilsons do beach holidays with cycling and great kids activities

I am thinking either beach or a swimming lake with cycling options. somewhere with sun and somewhere not too pricey! i was wondering about inland in France or somewhere in EAstern Europe maybe? done some googling and asked friends but looking for mner recommendations!
