Once in a life time holiday

Well here goes my now second attempt at my first ever post! I am determined not to ask dh for help, so please be gentle with me!

Last summer, my mum bought a touring caravan for us to use. Wow! After a thoroughly enjoyable few days in North Wales we were hooked! Life then got in the way of us having any more trips (busy with work, ill kids...you'll know this picture I'm sure!). Anyway, we are determined to make the most of this amazing opportunity and have decided to pop over to Southern France / Northern Spain (unless any of you can inspire us to head elsewhere?!) for about 6 weeks this summer.

My dh will tow the van out and stay with us for a few days, then he'll fly home and come back later in the holiday. So, I'll be staying at the van with my mum (a dapper, if slightly clunky 70 something), our ds (3yrs) and our dd (nearly 2yrs).

We've camped in lots of places in France over the years and have stayed on some amazing sites. We took our ds to a Yelloh site in Ramatuelle when he was tiny. It had a fantastic water play area and pool. It had a bar and restaurant and even some entertainment. The nearby beach was lovely but tbh I don't fancy the hike through the vineyards with my mum and now 2 kids everyday. We've also stayed on a site in Port Grimaud which had a small but perfect beach on site. The swimming pool though was more suited to older children. If I could put the two sites together, I'd be booking it!

I guess I'm really looking for a site that offers enough things to be enjoyable for young children while being accessible for a groovy granny who has a few replacement joints! Oh, and reasonably near to an airport so dh can join us! grin

This is a once in a life time opportunity for us as I'll be going back to work shortly after we return. I want to get it right for everyone so we can make memories that will certainly for me, last forever.

Any advice or tips will be gratefully received. Thanks in advance smile

Hi and well done on your first post. Unfortunately it is in the wrong section for what you need. You would be better off posting under the Travel section.

Try under Camping click here

Just copy and paste your post in there.

Thanks very much! I'd realised (too late of course!) that I'd posted it in the wrong place and had no idea what to do about it! Somewhat ironic it's ended up being a tech tip that I needed after all! Thanks again. Fingers crossed for attempt number 3!
