Planning a week's holiday with in laws and 2 DC (will be aged 5 and 1) next July/August. In laws very keen to see chateaux but we also want a family friendly place to stay with other kids around, a pool etc. In laws not up for roughing it so don't think they'd want to camp but self catering gite/apartment in a tasteful complex or similar would be fine. Would also consider an all-inclusive/resort type place. Any suggestions please?
This place www.logisdupressoir.com/ gets highly recommended by Mumsnetters and looks ideal, but whenever I've tried to book it (12 months in advance) it's been fully booked in school hols. You might get lucky though!
