La Palmyre Atlantique has it all. Great beaches but also pine forests and the beautiful Charentais countryside to be explored. Based on the edge of the Atlantic Ocean, there’s so much to see in the surrounding area such as exploring quaint villages by bike or trying out the exquisite local seafood. The kids can enjoy a fantastic range of activities such as tennis and archery while you sample the famous regional wine.
FAMILY SUMMER HOLIDAY DESTINATION GUIDE
Are you dreaming of a family summer holiday with sun, sea and sand? When you’re with the kids there’s often a need for more than beautiful beaches to keep everyone entertained. That’s why we’ve put together a list of Club Med resorts where the breathtaking seafronts are matched by an exciting range of other things to do when the younger members get restless.
The Palmiye Hotel resort has the dramatic Taurus mountains to one side and the Mediterranean to the other. After a sunny walk through the delightful gardens you can enjoy a day on the beach, splashing fun in the pool or a whole host of enjoyable sporting activities. Head for the mountains in a 4x4, go sailing to visit the mysterious sunken city of Simena or spend your day wandering fascinating Roman ruins. Kids and adults alike will have a brilliant time.
Our Da Balaia in Portugal is designed around the needs of families. Based in the sunny Algarve, we’ve got the children covered with everything from mini-golf to our famous Kids Club. The beach itself is one of the best in Portugal, and Portugal has some of the world’s best beaches. For a shared day of adventure we’d highly recommend the two-seater buggies that allow you to discover the region off the beaten track. Afterwards, share an amazing meal while staring out at the glorious sea.
Our Les Arcs Panorama resort isn’t just for ski-ing. In the summer it’s a high altitude experience for all the family. You can enjoy sun, fresh air and stunning views every day. The region itself offers up an endless amount to explore including historic villages, stunning nature and even a day of top notch shopping. Join the Walking and Hiking School to uncover the true wonders of the area or head out on mountain bikes for hours of going up and down trails. You’ll all return home feeling energised and inspired by the sheer beauty of the Alps.
Our Punta Cana resort offers you the best of the Caribbean in a coconut grove by the Atlantic Ocean. It’s going to be hard to pull yourself away from the dreamy beaches but, then again, you’ll want to try out the golf, the cocktails and the luxury spa. Our exclusive Circus playground offers kids the chance to learn new skills and be the star of their own show. For a shared experience, there’s little better than the huge zipline over the local rainforest offering adrenaline and views that need to be seen to be believed.
The family will fall in love with the authentic Club Med La Pointe aux Canonniers in Mauritius. For sheer natural beauty it’s hard to beat. But in addition to the extensive range of resort activities there’s a great deal for the family to do. Take everyone on a submarine trip to explore the bottom of the ocean. Ride a boat to the capital Port Louis where you’ll experience a local market buzzing with bargains. Or maybe everyone will want to hop on a buggy to zigzag between deer, zebra and ostriches in a beautiful nature reserve? It’s all there waiting for you.
