Hi - first of all this is not racist! Looking for a hotel/resort/ready set up campsite type thing with english speaking/British kids for my kids to hang out with! They DS will be 15 and DD 10 in the summer. Struck lucky with campsite in Italy at May half term a few years back - not too crowded and some other Brit families. Same campsite August the following year - packed and lots of Dutch and German and kids couldnt find anyone to hang out with (unfortunately they dont speak Dutch and German!Wink

Any obvious suggestions? Want sun but not over 30 degrees, and preferably fly/drive? Absolute max budget for a week would be £4k but would prefer cheaper!

The Dordogne in France is always full of Brits and generally has good weather. There are lots of threads on here recommending sites. Peneyrals seems to get mentioned quite often.

Otherwise, this year Greece seems popular with those whose teens aren't vaccinated if that will make a difference to where people travel.

Also, look at Google reviews for anywhere you want to go and see if many have been posted by people in the UK. My kids will happily play with any nationality and German/Dutch children generally speak English but I know it can be harder to join in if there are a large group all speaking the same language.

Yes go to France, always full of Brits. The Dordogne is a complete Brit enclave.

Otherwise Spain has a high Brit contingent too.

Look on the Tui/easyJet/Jet2 websites and find something you like the look of then see if you can book it independently. By definition the clients are going to be overwhelmingly British.

Neilsons are predominantly / all British clients with great "kids clubs" (suitable for teens too) but they might be over budget in the school holidays.

Given that most European children speak English maybe going somewhere less Brit-saturated and widening your children's horizons a little might be a good idea?
