One of the easiest ways to tighten your belt on a family holiday is also one of the best ways to see more of the country you are visiting — simply take advantage of the scenery and local attractions to entertain your family.
France has many advantages that can go unseen by families who only soak up the sun by a pool or decamp to the beach each day.
Here’s a great idea for 2009: high-tech trekking in the Vendée
Take your tots on a high-tech trek seeking out animal tracks through the forests of Vendée by hiring out a global positioning satellite (GPS) system and audio guide of the area.
The one or two-hour tours are a fun way for families to uncover the secrets of St. Jean-de-Monts and the surrounding area, including the Pays de Monts forest and famed salt marches.
A GPS can be hired from siblu’s Le Bois Masson holiday parc from as little as €6 for an afternoon, or €9 for the full day.
What other ideas do you have?
