This is a really lovely guest post brought to you in collaboration with Car Hire Market, in France. I really would love to holiday in France in a yurt or tree house.
France might seem like an obvious family holiday destination, but if you’re looking for something more original, France can be a great place for an exciting and alternative family holiday. Different accommodation, transport and activities can all make a holiday memorable and unique. Check out some of our alternative ideas for the perfect family holiday in France.
If you’re looking to completely escape from the world for a week or two, book a yurt holiday in France. Yurts have all the luxury of a hotel room but with the rustic outdoorsy feeling of camping. Yurt holidays are a perfect balance if you have younger children as you’re free from the stress of trying to get them dressed in a small, soggy tent. Auvergne Naturelle is a luxury yurt site surrounded by woodland. As well as the breath taking scenery there are also things to see and do, activities for kids and even bush craft courses if you feel like doing something adventurous. This area of the country is relatively unspoilt, away from the hustle and bustle of the city and far from the more tourist centred areas.
If you want to experience more of France, take a family road trip. If you prefer going by plane than by ferry, hire a car for when you land. Car hire in France is easy to arrange and can be cheap too. Many car hire companies also provide car seats and booster seats at a small additional cost to save hassle at the airport. Drive around France and explore the beautiful landscape, secluded areas and cities too to get the most out of your holiday experience. Along the way you’ll find more interesting things to see and do and more alternative accommodation than if you just stayed in one place.
Treehouses aren’t just for kids to play in; they are also an amazing place to stay for an alternative family holiday. Kids will love the novelty of staying in a luxury treehouse and the surroundings make for a relaxing, secluded holiday where kids and adults alike can escape from reality for some quality family time. Luxury treehouses are a cool alternative to staying in a chateaux, with all the amenities you need surrounded by beautiful woodland. Hautefort Treehouse near Bergerac, Dordogne sleeps 6 and is complete with three double bedrooms, kitchen and bathrooms. Cots and highchairs are also available on request for younger children.
