Great Family Holiday Destinations in France 

Whether you’re looking for a gentle first holiday with a newborn, or your children are fussy teens, there will be something for you in France. Read on for tips and ideas on making your holiday child friendly and relaxing too.

Family Holidays in France with Teenagers 

If you want a big, rambling country house where the whole family can relax with a swimming pool, garden and satellite TV, then France has plenty of choice.

But teenagers also enjoy new places and fresh experiences so also consider elegant apartments in picturesque towns where you and the youngsters can explore history and culture, enjoy pavement cafes, meet new people and really get into the French way of life.

There are plenty of properties that will fit the bill on our lists, and French Connections pride themselves on providing a great personal service, so talk to our property owners today for help on planning the perfect holiday and more information.

Family Holidays in France with Young Children

France has many regions and destinations which are ideal for families with young children, toddlers and babies. Top locations for self-catering family holidays with young children are North West France, especially Normandy and Brittany.

You'll find spacious countryside, loads of activities and places to go and every kind of seaside from unspoilt rocky coves to buzzing resorts with wide, sandy beaches where the little ones will play happily all day.

Family self catering holidays in France with young children can make life much easier: you don’t have to worry about being out of your hotel room at a certain time, keep having to navigate restaurants and shops with prams and you can really relax in beautiful surroundings that are just as relaxing for your children as they are for you.
