Teens to France
« on: December 29, 2014, 09:45:42 am »
Any recommendations for young teenagers (12/13/14) in France /other Europe please? Have done lots of UK before but feeling brave enough to venture a bit further with them now!
Thanks

Try Lake Garda we (myself and my 12 year old son) went last year to Cisano San Vito best of both worlds.  Bus route to local attractions and as it was close enough we ventured to Milan, Venice and Verona, my son loved it.  There are lots of facilities at the site so you needn't go anywhere other than cycling walking along the lake or taking up any of the number of watersports available.  We have also been to Costa Brava a few times.  This year we are hoping to go to France (Languedoc/Roussillon region).  I don't drive abroad, we get to the campsite/resorts via public transport and then hire bikes locally.  Enjoy!

Hi. We looked at Lake Garda last year but weren't lucky enough. I was just wondering how far from the airport was it and was it easy via public transport to reach?

We did Ty nadan perfect for teenagers and lots of sites to see would recommend the rural village of Quistinic where you can be submersed in the french history of clothes, cloth making, ironing and washing we were very impressed. Also visited Carnac and Quimper cathedral. Well worth the trip - we went from calais and drove down was an easy drive and there are many pit stops which make it easy to have a wee break which traveling with a 3 year old made it childs play to do 6 hours drive. On site we borrowed a canoe and there were so many ffacilities that we were spoilt for choice. Definately worth a shortlist!

Hi not France but I can highly recommend Villanova in Spain, my son now 13 when I ask for his opinion can only manage 'Generally awesome' usually followed by 'Are we going back?' Only issue I can think of is you would need to hire a car. You can fly into Reus which is not far about 30 mins I think.

Local transport and route are easy, coach took about 1 hr from Verona and stopped fairly close to the entrance of the campsite (about 500 yds).

Would agree with San vitro, lake Garda recommendations having visited Spring bank holiday last year. We hired a car, so only had 30 minute drive from Verona airport to resort.  So much on the doorstep, including amazing waterpark & medieval times, both of which we booked via internet before we went.  Bike hire through campsite was very cheap and a great way to see villages directly along lake. We also, extravagantly, hired a speed boat to explore the lake.  The site itself also has it all. If you have transport, the local lidl was only a 5 minute drive if self-catering.

Hi,You do have to make your own arrangements for travel
There are some Ferry special deals through The Sun but they're not available for every break
