Family Holidays in France

Free Disney trips, free horse-riding and free food are some of the Autumn offers from family friendly travel company Tots to Travel. Plus, families looking for a half term break can still snap up a property if they move fast.

FREE Horseriding Taster Sessions and Adventure treks for tots

Les Gites de Lavalette, in the Charente / Dordogne border offers families with children of any age entertainment on horseback! Apart from the FREE taster sessions for tots, the British owner (who is a British Horse Society trained instructor) provides horseriding lessons and a special Adventure Trek for little people which takes them on a tour across the local vineyards, through the walnut trees and down to the river for a snack. Adults can book sessions according to their level and experience.

Accommodation: Albizia (three bedrooms) and Acaia (two bedrooms) provide simple, clean and comfortable accommodation with plenty of toys and play equipment for the children.

Cost: prices start from £475.00 in September 08 with Albizia still available for half term.

Disneyland: Parents Go FREE! And free limited edition champagne and champagne house tour

Le Manoir Champagnois, which includes Le Gite Meunier (two bedrooms) and La Maison Verger (one bedroom gite), is just 90 minutes from the thrill and excitement of Disneyland Paris and just three hours from Calais ferry port. Any guests staying during September through to the end of January 2009 will have tickets waiting for them on their arrival at Le Manoir, which lets parents go free to both Disney Park and Disney Studios. This means no waiting in queues – and as under 3s are always free, it’s a great way to see the park for next to nothing.

Autumn and winter are the very best times to enjoy the park as the crowds have vanished and the cooler weather makes for an altogether more comfortable trip. The Tots to Travel team will provide Disney novices with loads of tips like where to park, where to eat and which rides are a ‘must.’

In addition, first time visitors to Le Manoir Champagnois will also receive a limited edition bottle of Compte Audoin de Dampierre Grand Vintage 2002 Champagne in a Dampierre ice bucket PLUS entry for 2 people to one of the major Champagne houses in either Epernay or Reims.
