Mine - Bonne anse plage at Le palmyre was fab - lots to do on site and fabbo beach a short drive away.

Grand 34b was spacious ( well you know) and the site is int a pine forest

drive there only 6 hours and really warm weather

Domaine de la Foret (Vendee) was excellent. Nice and quite with good facilities. We all had a blast. The kids had more freedom than they have ever had in their lives. First rate for people with younger kids not wanting a disco each noght (1 a week and 1 quiz night......which the hmbers won!) The area is great with loads to do. We all ate too much!

Any "dont leave home without" tips? We're off to a Keycamps site in the Vendee on Monday. Again in a Grand 34b.

notthecod · 17/08/2004 19:10

No, ds1 is v petite and never shown an interest in wheeled things. Still cant pedal his trike. Were thinking of getting him and ds2 a bike each for XMAS, in the hope that ds2 will push ds1 into getting on with it. His physio positively encouraged it for his hypermobility and low muscle tone! Just didnt wnt to make the mistake of getting it too soon, and him giving up before he's even given it a go. He's already such a perfectionist!

notthecod · 17/08/2004 19:14

its a camp site in s brittany I think
oh sorry didnt realise there were physio problmes
maybe you can hire one if he sees the other kids

OP posts:
honeybunny · 17/08/2004 19:18

Maybe I exaggerate... he's not that bad, just a bit slower than his peers over some mobility things. Well thats my excuse for him not being able to pedal!! His friend 3weeks younger had a bike for his 3rd b-day and has had no probs. ds1 doesnt care but muggins here clearly has a complex!!!

notthecod · 17/08/2004 19:36
