Most memorable were the rural location with an opportunity to see the landscape and vegetation. The space, both our private area around our yurt and outside where the kids were free to play on the trampoline and meet the chickens and donkey. The smallness of the resort and the uncrowded beach. The morning bike ride into the village for bread. (more)Roos Eisma

Provence boutique hotel in Arles, France
Our room was a good size, air con (we were there in August) and clean. The pool was just right too. Location is excellent - far better than being in one of the towns. Meals are eaten outside in the evenings and several (including us) suggested they modified the lighting. (more)Trevor Waller
The scenery in Provence is stunning. It was really pleasurable just driving around. My favourite place was probably Pic Saint Loup where we went to visit a couple of vineyards, including Morties which was just stunning and the wine was remarkable!...Very enjoyable stay. It worked well for us. (more)Ania Nowicki

The thing that worried me most about becoming a dad (bulging nappies aside), was the thought of kissing those exotic long-haul vacations goodbye in favour of a nice day out at the local country park and visiting the grandparents – “yours or mine this weekend?”. Struck by this worrying realisation that a life of day-trips and comfortable furry footwear awaited, I dragged my wife, who had done all her kicking and screaming for the year, and our two-month-old son Benjamin (who hadn’t), on a two-month, twenty thousand mile round-trip to Australia. If Simon's article has whet your appetite for traveling with small children, take a look at the rest of his 'baby on board' baby friendly vacations article.
