Fun Holiday Ideas For Active Toddlers: The French Center Parcs

Tots can be full of energy 24/7 – but try these brilliant getaways and you’ll never be stuck for something to do…


Riviera Beach Club, CÔte D’Azur, France.


Flights to Toulon take 90 minutes from London Stansted, then it’s 10 minutes by car.


One of the top holiday clubs in France, Belambra has 58 properties around the country, specialising in family activities. Set in 16 acres between Toulon and Saint Tropez on the Mediterranean coast, Riviera Beach Club has been revamped to include a private beach and a sailing club for children from seven years.

Kids’ club Les Renardeaux takes children from three to five years, while under threes can be looked after free of charge. Outdoor activities focus on games, plus children over nine months can have swimming lessons at an extra charge.

There are also art workshops and exhibitions of the kids’ work. One evening a week, parents can hand over the littlies to the activity leaders (who all speak English) so they can have a night out, and there’s plenty of grown-up fun at the water sports centres and Thalassa spa, a short walk or drive away.


Families stay in one- or two-bedroom, air-conditioned apartments with their own balcony/terrace, fridge, safe and TV. ‘Privilege’ apartments have sea views. You can also choose a free baby package, which includes a cot, bath, bottle warmer and baby bouncer.


From £495 per adult, per week and £247 per child, including seven nights’ half-board accommodation, all activities and childcare. Visit Belambra or call 00800 2007 2008.
