Mercantour family hiking vacation, France
From
£435
excluding flights
Awesome, it has raised the bar for next year! (more)Tony Johnson
The whole thing was memorable! Our 6 year old and 4 year old leading "Leonidas" our donkey through the French Alps, sleeping in a beautiful yurt in an Alpine meadow, and feeling like we'd done something completely different to the typical "bucket and spade" type of vacation. (more)Alison Godfrey
The mountains, flora and fauna in an exceptionally beautiful and unspoilt part of the world, within and on the periphery of the Mercantour National Park in the French maritime Alps were most memorable. (more)Nick Lampert
Snowshoeing in the French Alps
From
€1,151
excluding flights
The husky dog sledding, the ice climb, the snowshoeing itself, being out in such a beautiful environment! And our companions too - the other four people in the party were lovely, and we all got on very well together - enough in common to bond yet different enough for good conversation! (more)Angela Dennison
In terms of the most exciting part, it has to be the ice climbing...not part of our original plans but I'm so glad it was suggested. Slow down and enjoy your stay in what really is an undiscovered part of the Alps. (more)Norma Sherratt
Well organized, interesting, hassle free and great fun- the ideal introduction to the activities. (more)Matt Hannah

Pyrenees family activity vacation
From
£805
excluding flights
Every activity was great - extremely challenging but with great guides who helped us all to succeed (more)Kathy Halliday
The activities were all superbly planned, organised and great fun. White water rafting was enjoyed by all of the family, the scenic mountain walk was enhanced by local species being pointed out for us and information on how the various rock formations occurred. (more)Mary Fretwell
I particularly loved our mountain walk, with spectacular views and carpets of Pyrenean irises, and I think one of the highlights for all of us was swimming in a beautiful mountain lake. (more)Trisha Cochrane
Burgundy self guided cycling tours, France
From
€880
excluding flights
Memorable parts? Cycling at our own pace through stunning, varied countryside and finding places that we would have missed in a car. Tips? Be prepared for more than just undulating vineyards - there are some hills and you should have a decent level of fitness. (However, we managed and are in our more senior years!) The hire bikes were excellent, sturdy machines and there was technical back-up if required. (Luckily not needed! ) Local benefits? Staying at comfortable,... (more)Neil Crawley

Accommodation in the Mercantour, France
From
£420
per accommodation per week
It is the best vacation we’ve had in France and that's from a perspective of over 40 years vacationing in France...The walking in the beautiful mountains in the Mercantour with snow,sun,isolation and good companions.Why did I reach 67 before finding this most beautiful place? (more)Tony Bell

The most memorable part was exploring, mainly on foot, a 'new', relatively unknown but scenically stunning corner of France on the back of excellent, welcoming accommodation and hospitality. (more)Richard Gregory

From
€560
per cottage per week (sleeps 2-4)
Five stars for getting the right amount of things done & rest. The countryside is beautiful, the gite and courtyard were lovely, the hosts wonderful and the chateaux have to be seen at least once in a lifetime. (more)Ilinca Anghelescu
It was the perfect family vacation with a 15 month old. With 3 separate cottages all surrounding one courtyard, it provides the perfect place for a shared family vacation, but still giving you your own space to retreat to! (more)Becky Reid
Despite some inclement weather on a few days, it was one of the best vacations we have ever had. We didn't want to leave. We would love to get back in the near future. (more)Valerie Guihen

Provence self guided cycling tour, Avignon to Cassis
From
€900
excluding flights
Memorable parts? The scenery and the food. Tips? You do need to be semi fit! Local benefits? Local shops and cafes would have benefitted in the smaller, out of the way villages Overall rating? 4.5 stars. Only negative aspect was the hotel on the first and final night in Avignon, The Ibis, where the rooms were tiny, like being in a cabin and did make us worry about what was to follow! However, the other hotels were all fabulous but then we had to return to the Ibis... (more)Anne Morrice
Provence biking tour, France
From
€1,070
excluding flights
Memorable parts? Cycling up Mont Ventoux. Wow! Its tough, very tough, but worth the effort. Particularly nice to have a really fabulous hotel at the bottom to relax afterwards. Tips? Do try to make the initial meeting with the local rep. We didn't and there were a few issues - for example some of our dinner arrangements - that it would have been better to iron out before they became issues. We were a bit disappointed that we weren't warned in advance that the meeting with the local... (more)Jane Frank

From

We really enjoyed the week in the Auvergne it is very unspoilt and it is an area you can "get away from it all"....The area is ideal for walkers or most kinds of outdoor activities.

Mercantour hiking vacation in France
From
£435
excluding flights
Memorable parts? A truly special experience in a little corner of the Mercantour where time seems to have stood still. We went with the flow of life at the pace of an ambling donkey. Every detail of the trip was well thought out, and the route guidance booklet (which we carried with us all the time) was spot on. The range of different landscapes we walked through surprised and delighted us. The effectiveness of the route marking was also great. The vacation providers team was hugely... (more)Carolyne Mason
