Holidays

Marseille/Aix/Provence in October

Hello

We're thinking about a holiday in this area in October half term- we don't live in the UK and can get a ferry to Marseille easily (which seems a more reliable option than flying at the moment). Kids are 5 and 7.

We're looking for somewhere in the countryside- ideal would be a farm stay with a lake or river for swimming nearby but not a hotel. We live by the sea so don't need or want a beach holiday, but somewhere the kids can roam around outside, maybe some farm animals. I like a couple of the more basic Yelloh sites but they're closed by the end of October.

Does anyone have any recommendations? I'd like to spend a day or two in Marseille as well for some city times (love a gritty port city!). But we don't know that area of France at all.

Can’t recommend as we haven’t been yet, but we’re going to a campsite near Fréjus in October half term - you can find it on Sandaya’s website, called Riviera d’Azur. I hope it’s going to be nice, but tbh it’ll be amazing just to get to France and have a break!
Hope you find somewhere nice.
