You know we are no strangers to a road trip. Since we have had the children, we love nothing more than to jump in the camper van and head off on a road trip, travelling off the beaten tracks with a destination in mind and a rough idea of the route. Saying that, it is always good to have a plan and an idea of an itinerary to plan for those little details. As you know, we all have dreams. No two travellers are identical and no two itineraries are the same, so it is important ensure your travel plans are tailor made with you in mind.

Holidays in France for Families with the Voyageurs collection
We love travelling to France with the kids. We find ferry travel easy and stress free, particularly with young children, and we love to be able to bring along the bikes during our trips. Last year we enjoyed a brilliant Summer road trip along the west coast of France and into Spain.
France offers mountains, coastal escapes, glorious rivers, and vibrant city breaks and is a great choice for a family holiday.
Here are a few France holiday ideas for you.
Biarritz to Bordeaux: Road Trip on France’s West Coast
Take a road trip on the west coast along the Atlantic. The trip begins on the Basque Coast, Hendaye, Saint-Jean-de-Luz, Bidart, and Biarritz. Choose to relax on the beach or surf in Saint-Jean-de-Luz, stroll along the markets taking in the vibrant colours and the hustle and bustle. Then head north to the Landes de Gascogne regional natural park. The trip ends in Bordeaux where you can explore the City, wander through the Place de la Comedie and the fountain of Three Graces.
