Our Perfect Al Fresco Holiday: LA SIRENE #AlFrescoFamily

For us our holidays revolve around our two children, anywhere we pick needs to have plenty of on-site entertainment to keep them occupied, we do sight see but there are only so many old buildings I can drag them around before they pull a face, stamp their feet and get a bit grizzly! Tots 100 challenged us to pick our favourite Al Fresco Holidays destination in France.

At 7 and 9 they enjoy trying out new activities and the Al Fresco Holidays LA SIRENE campsite in Roussillon has an impressive list of activities for them to enjoy.  After games of football, volleyball, basketball, field hockey, fencing and French boules they should be suitably tired so I could sit back and relax with a nice glass of wine and watch the evening entertainment in peace.  As much as our holidays are focused on the kids as a parent I need time to relax and recuperate too.

The impressive water park would keep my two happy; it’s all set in a landscaped garden that is very picturesque but with lots of fun promised!

The most perfect place for your children to make friends and socialise – and tire themselves out so they quit arguing!

There is a kids club for 3-12 year olds, which is a nice option if you need it.  I like having it as a back up just in case, but with the vast swimming pools, playgrounds and beach on the doorstep there is so much to do already.  LA SIRENE really is the most ideal family campsite.

There is also an onsite shop and for less than 3 euros (£2.50) you can get some excellent local rosé wine – need I have a better reason to tempt you to book a holiday to LA SIRENE!  Being self catering you can indulge in all the delicacies of the region or if you have fussy eaters just fill them with crusty baguettes and cheese!

The land bus takes you to the clean beach, ideal for a family stroll.  Or we would most likely hire bikes to cycle along the promenade and see the fishing village.  As a family we like to be active and explore the immediate area we are staying in.

I would probably like to hire a car so we could adventure out a couple of days too; Perpignan is only 14 miles away and has lots to offer.  I would enjoy seeing the beautiful Cathedrale St-Jean with all the gold leaf gleaming and the remarkable stained glass windows, but would bribe the children with the offer of a visit to the Cemoi chocolate makers afterwards.  We all have a sweet tooth in our family!  For us holidays are about balance making sure there is something to keep everyone happy.  A mixture of activities to suit everyone.

I would like to take my parents on our dream holiday because they are getting older and I want the boys to have lots of fond memories with their grandparents.   My mum turns 70 this year so it’s a special birthday year and I think holidays with extended family are so precious.  I like the children knowing just how important family are that they are worth taking on holiday with us.

  1. This sounds like a wonderful place to visit with children. Is it self catering?

    Also some nice areas around to explore so overall plenty to do

  3. Must put this on my places to visit list - looks a great holiday for families with children (especially the kids club!)

  4. It definitely sounds like my kind of holiday, a little bit of everything to keep everyone happy.

  5. That sounds like a perfect holiday, lots to keep the children entertained and cheap wine; the perfect combination! France is an amazing country to choose as a holiday destination.

  6. This looks like a fantastic place for a holiday. My daughter would absolutely love that water park!

  7. Water parks and bungee trampolines suit my kids too. This looks like a great place!

  8. Looks fab. We nearly wrote about that site, but the boys are desperate to go to Disneyland, so it had to be La Croix for us.

  9. Ooh that does look lovely! My two are all about city breaks right now so no relaxing holiday parks for us lol

  10. I don't think I could tear my kids out of the water park.......well maybe for a go on the bungee trampolines
