Holidays with Children
If you're travelling with kids, then you'll want to know what's on offer. Whether they're tots or teens, there's plenty of brilliant stuff to keep them entertained. After all, if they're happy, you're happy.
Most parcs have a club especially for kids, many with their own custom-built playrooms. So your children can get stuck into everything from mini-golf to magic with boys and girls their own age.
The multilingual staff are brilliant with kids, helping them have fun, get involved and try new things. So you can kick back with a good book knowing your family is in good hands.
Many of our parcs are within easy reach of Europe's family theme parks and attractions. Pre-book your tickets with us and we'll find you the best value for money through our partner attractionworld.com More

Al Fresco Kidz Club
With Al Fresco they will have the time of their lives which means you will have plenty of time to yourself. They will be making new friends, getting wet, pounding the playground and exploring the site. Run exclusively for Al Fresco customers, there are tons of stimulating and imaginative activities for 4 to 12 year olds and the groups are small enough to make everyone welcome.
You'll find Al Fresco Kidz Club at: Sanguli campsite Costa Dorada, Spain
Château Des Ormes campsite Brittany, France
Clarys Plage campsite Vendee, France
La Croix du Vieux Pont campsite Champagne, France
All of our Kidz Club staff will have worked with children before and are CRB checked so you can relax knowing that your children will not only have a great time, but are in safe hands.
Children aged 4 to 7
Most parcs host their own kids' clubs in modern and comfortable purpose-built play rooms which provide the safe and welcoming environment your children need.
The multi-lingual staff provide well-organised, age-specific activities so that children get the most from their play with children of their own age group. After all, most of us know, what is fun for a 4 year old might not be fun for a 7 year old.
Here's just some of the fun stuff they can get up to (some activities are off-parc and you may need to pay a small local charge): bug hunts, outer space, face painting, treasure hunts, colouring competitions, and parachute games.
Children aged 8 to 12
Older pre-teens are well catered for too, and there are tons of opportunities to make new friends around the parc and at the kids clubs. Whether they're budding equestrians, swimmers, or prefer something a little more sedate, they'll have a whale of a time.
And although we know that kids love a bit of independence from the folks as they get older, you can rest assured that they are being looked after by experienced, multi-lingual staff.
Here's just a taster of the great stuff they can get up to: Magic forum, pedalos, mini golf, tennis, table tennis, pool, football, video games, sports competitions, rounders, handicrafts, and evening shows. (some of these activities are off-parc and you may need to pay a small charge locally).
With all the stuff that's happening at the parc, we bet they'll unplug the i-pod and get stuck in.
There's tons to keep them out of mischief like archery, tennis, games rooms and discos to name a few. Some parcs provide a youth club with organised activities and trips or just somewhere to hang out with new friends. Some activities may carry a local charge.
Wet, Wild & Wonderful
Of course, no holiday would be complete without a serious drenching, and all our parcs have great pools or beaches, and most have brilliant water complexes with tropical pools and slides. Watch out for lazy rivers and wavepools too!
