Simple pleasures at La Garangeoire, France - Al Fresco Holidays

On the recommendation of some friends we stayed at  La Garangeoire in The Vendee last August. It was our first Al Fresco holiday but certainly not the last.  The Al Fresco pitches were the best on the site – large plots with lots of space for our young children to play within sight.  The park, pedaloes, mini-golf, babyfoot and of course the swimming pools went down a treat with the children as did the day trips to the many nearby beaches (surprisingly no parking problems whatsoever even in peak season).

We decided to switch our children’s body-clocks onto “grown-up’s time” so in the evening they stayed up with us and the group of friends we traveled with. The bouncy castle and entertainment in the bar kept them as happy as sandboys (and girls) and tired them out nicely.  We all enjoyed lie-ins in the mornings!

Great site, well-equipped (and thoroughly clean) mobile home, good food, well-deserved wine and fabulous company. One happy family. We’ll be going back in a few weeks.
