  1. It never appeal to take my children abroad when they were young, but so many more places, like these, are designed to be suitable for children.

  2. I’ve just posted about our week at La Garangeoire! Although, at 4 and 6, mine are a little older than toddlers, it really was a perfect place to take a family holiday, and I’m sure we’d have enjoyed it just as much if the children had been younger. We also spent a day at Duinrell in the spring, and decided that would be a good place to stay for longer.

  3. Some great ideas in here. I’m bookmarking this for our next holiday. I’d love to do the Lake Garda one.

  4. We have never been on a Eurocamp holiday before, however now that we have three children we have been looking into it. We were thinking of Paris but Lake Garda looks amazing xx
