Family fun in Brittany
Most of my family holidays were spent somewhere in France, usually camping by the coast or a lake, along with quite a few long drives to get there. But it’s not that surprising that the country is such a favourite for parents – you can swap the flight for a ferry, pack the car until it’s bursting with all the paraphernalia you need, and if you head to somewhere like Brittany, it’s not even too far.
So Brittany Tourism’s new website is great for helping plan, with everything from tips on how to keep everyone entertained to family-friendly accommodation, all with a charter that sets out a string of promises.
Everything from gîtes to campsites have all been vetted to ensure there’s a ‘kit bébé’ with cot, high chair, changing mat and microwave or bottle warmer, baby-sitting services and family rates.
And the activities are sorted by theme (including shellfish gathering!) as well as age range, from 0-3 years up to 12-15 years so you can work out the best options for your kids. There’s also suggestions on some of the best food to try while you’re in the region.
It’s not an exhaustive list of everything to do in Brittany, but to be sure you’ll get something that’s been planned with children in mind, it’s a great place to start.
