The destination to choose, the ideal accommodation for young and old alike, the activities to favour… Family holidays require organisation! Here are 5 tips you can follow to organise the very best family holiday at one of your campsites by the sea or the ocean or in the countryside. It’s over to you!
Choose your destination: without compromise!
Family holidays always start with the same question: where shall we go this year? With Sandaya campsites, you will be spoilt for choice: a leisurely break in the Mediterranean, a nature stay in the Auvergne, learning how to surf in the Landes, a complete change of scenery in the Costa Brava… Give free rein to your desires! All our destinations are kid-friendly. And if you’re worried about having to adapt your holidays to your children’s pace of life, just remember that it’s the perfect opportunity to discover the benefits of slow tourism!
If you dream of family holidays by the sea, opt for our campsites with direct access to the beach, perfect for children who can’t wait to get in the water! Our campsites on the lakeside or near a river are particularly suitable for young campers: calm and shallow freshwater are perfect for their very first bathing experiences!
Choose your accommodation: space, comfort and escapism!
Whether small groups or tribes, all families are welcome! At our 4 or 5 star campsites, we offer a vast selection of accommodation so that everyone can feel at home.
Large families can, in particular, count on our “Friends” mobile homes and their spacious layout for up to 10 people. Fancy a Swiss Family Robinson experience? Discover our quirkier accommodation and stay in an authentic gipsy caravan, a lodge tent or even a tree house. Children will be able to live their dream adventures! Finally, our more traditional cottages and chalets offer 2 or 3 separate bedrooms and all the equipment you need for your family stay.
And for new parents, be sure to ask for your baby kit when you arrive: folding cot, highchair and bath, perfect for travelling without weighing yourself down!
Choose your activities: the chance to be together!
After the long weeks of preparation, the holidays are here! At last, you’re going to be able to focus on what’s important: spending quality time together as a family.
To fill your days, your Sandaya campsite has thought of everything: horse-riding lessons, mini-golf tournaments, aquagym sessions, multisports grounds… and, of course, the all-important water park! Pools, water jets, waterslides, it’s by far the favourite spot for children… and parents! The sun loungers by the pools are the perfect place for sipping a refreshing cocktail and losing yourself in your latest novel.
Time just for you: and what about having a rest?
Swimming, cycling trips, cultural tours, and more. Your family holidays mean that, at last, you can spend some valuable time with your children. But, for parents, holidays are also the chance to enjoy something quite rare: some rest! So to reconcile family holidays with some personal time, you can count on the campsite’s free children’s clubs!
In the high season, children from 5 to 17 years love meeting up there for daily activities with campers of their own age. Meanwhile, parents are free to take a break: enjoy a well-being session at the campsite’s spa, a nap in the sun, a book by the waterside… You deserve it!
It’s time to leave: do you have everything?
The final step before setting off: packing your bags! The same question comes up every year: how to avoid carrying too much? Fortunately, we’ve thought about families. Each of our campsites has one or more laundrettes to prevent you from having to carry lots of spare clothes. On site, you will also find camping equipment to rent, as well as bed and bathroom linen. Have you forgotten anything? You can count on our supermarkets for beach accessories and your everyday needs!
Handy tip: don’t forget to bring a first-aid kit for scratches and scrapes: antiseptic, plasters, thermometer, etc. You can never be too sure when on holiday with children!
Is your luggage ready? All that remains is for you to head to your camping destination with peace of mind for a family holiday that will remain forever engraved in your memory!
