Our very first Al Fresco holiday - Al Fresco Holidays
In 2010 we decided to take out very first Al Fresco holiday. We stayed on the sol a-go-go campsite in Vendee, France. Me and my husband were a little dubious as we had always gone abroad to spain on package holidays.
On arrival, staff couldn’t do enough to help and although small, the camp itself was excellent! So much different to what you would expect from a package holiday.
Our caravan was spacious, well equipped and perfect for our family of 5 including the grandparents! The pool on site was slightly heated, excellent for small children and the water slides and chutes are perfect even for the big kids!!
Our children were kept occupied by all the many activities on site and we found that the games room, park, football pitch, pool table etc were all within a short walking distance.
The best part of the holiday as far as my children were concerned, was the fact that our camp was situated at the side of the beach! After a busy day of activities, we could have a bite to eat and then take a leisurely walk to the beach where the children could run for miles, throw pebbles in the sea, build endless sandcastles and even have room to fly their kite.
Since that holiday last year, we have never looked back, we are going Al Fresco again in a fortnight, this time to Paris, and will be booking again for next year as soon as possible!
